My skin has been temperamental the last couple of months. As I age I find my skin cells don’t regenerate as quickly so I accumulate dead skin leading to dullness, dryness and congestion.
My major skin concerns have been dehydration, dullness and dark spots from hyperpigmentation.
I exfoliate regularly but I’ve now had to increase the frequency. Manual scrubs just don’t seem to cut it for me. My preferred option is chemical exfoliants to help loosen and get rid of dead skin cells.
Today I will be sharing my thoughts on a new product I’ve added to my regimen from BYBI.
Bybi Acid Gold AHA Face Mask 50ml
Acid Gold is an exfoliating face mask packed with natural AHAs to banish dulling, dead skin cells. It provides a potent hit of regenerating and skin-cell-renewing ingredients that brighten and replenish skin while improving tone and texture, all in a thick jelly mask that’s incredibly satisfying to apply.
The pumpkin enzyme in Acid Gold uses pumpkin flesh that is a by-product of the pumpkin seed industry and would otherwise be thrown away.
Acid Gold contains a potent blend of natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) including lactic (derived from bilberry extract), glycolic (derived from sugar cane extract), malic and tartaric (derived from sugar maple extract). Dead skin cells cause both dullness and dryness; AHAs break down the “glue” that binds these cells together, revealing smooth, firm and soft skin.
Pumpkin enzyme gently exfoliates, enhancing cell renewal and replenishing skin firmness, texture and bounce.
The clarifying blend of AHAs with added papain (papaya) enzyme work to reduce bacteria in the skin, helping to prevent breakouts and blemishes. Combined with sea buckthorn oil and moisturising agent glycerin, Acid Gold doesn’t strip or dry out the skin. Instead, skin feels balanced, clear and soft with visibly improved texture.
Glycerin, Passiflora Edulis (Passion Fruit) Seed, Aqua (Water), Carica Papaya Seed, Coco-Glucoside, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Fruit Oil, Vaccinium Myrtillus (Bilberry) Fruit Extract, Lactobacillus/Pumpkin Fruit Ferment Filtrate, Sucrose Stearate, Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Papain, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Limonene, Xanthan Gum, Benzyl Alcohol, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, Caprylic Acid, Xylitol, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Tocopherol, Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil Expressed.
Apply a thin layer to clean skin using the brush included. Leave on for 5-15 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water. The acids and enzymes may cause a slight tingle and a little redness immediately after use, this is normal but rinse off immediately if the tingling begins to burn or sting. Follow with Mega Mist, Night Nutrition and Bakuchiol Booster for the ultimate night time routine.
We always recommend patch testing before use. Natural AHAs can be strong so please don’t skip the patch test!
Acid Gold is for skin that’s feeling dry, dull, damaged, clogged or blemish-prone. Not suitable for sensitive skin.
First off let me just say how beautiful the packaging is. The image on the inside of the box is beautiful and eye-catching. The carton and glass container are 100% recyclable which is great.
I love that the mask comes with an application brush. This helps to apply an even, thin layer onto the skin and ensures I don’t use too much product.
I love how bright and vibrant the colour is and it smells amazing, sweet and citrusy.
I like to use this mask as part of my evening routine twice a week. I apply a thin layer to cleansed skin and leave it on for 15 minutes. You will feel a slight tingling sensation on the skin but it doesn’t last long and doesn’t feel uncomfortable.
After rinsing there is a notably visible difference in my skin.
My skin is visibly brighter, more radiant, smoother and softer. Over time it has done wonders for my skin. I experience less congestion, breakouts, whiteheads and blackheads. Another added bonus is better product absorption. My products penetrate deeper and don’t just sit on top of my skin.
I’ve been very impressed with the results using this mask and it is now a staple in my regimen!
