The Faux "Vampire Facial"

I know everyone has seen Kim Kardashian’s picture that was taken while she was getting a “Vampire Facial.” To make a long story short a real “Vampire Facial” is when a dermatologist performs a standard microdermabrasion procedure then applies a layer of your own platelet rich plasma onto your skin afterwards. I’m calling this the “Faux Vampire Facial” because the only similarities are the color and the fact that heavy duty exfoliation is taking place.  If you are willing to pay $1000 for a real “Vampire Facial” at a dermatologist’s office, please do. But, if a less than $8 option sounds like a better deal…keep reading!

The real name for the aforementioned “Faux Vampire Facial” is the AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution from The Ordinary which they call a 10 Minute Facial. This product offers deep exfoliation to help fight blemishes and increase the brightness and radiance of the skin. In my experience this product does truly live up to its claim. When I have a developing breakout, I’ll use this after my cleanser and leave it on for 10 minutes (no longer than 10 minutes…I’m serious!) then rinse off, I find that it really stops my breakout in its tracks. I also love to use it weekly as a general exfoliant to keep the appearance of my skin from becoming dull.

Application of  AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution-

To use, I simply apply the product to my dry face using the dropper applicator. I apply more products where I have my dark marks/ hyperpgmentation. I rub it in with my fingers then let it sit for 10 minutes. After 10 mins I rinse if off thoroughly to make sure no product is left on my skin, especially near my eyes.  I only use this product at night. I have never experienced any visible peeling after using this product, but if you have never used acids on your skin, be sure to test it out first. As always, when you use any AHA or BHA you must avoid the sun and use sunscreen to avoid damage to your skin (not optional).
