Is the Erno Laszlo White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel Worth the Exorbitant Price Point?
I don't know about you but I am always happy to find fantastic skin care products that help my complexion to look it's very best and, if they slow the advance of the effects of time, all the better! But in this case, are the results worth the exorbitant price point?

One of the ingredients that I rely on to exfoliate, brighten and refine my skin tone is Vitamin C; in fact, I call Vitamin C one of my skin's "power ingredients" because it has made and continues to make such a huge difference in my complexion!
One way to deliver the power of Vitamin C to my skin is through a peel. I like to do home peels, they are easy, safe, convenient and they deliver real results. One peel that I have been using, lately is the Erno Laszlo White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel, $100.00 at Sephora. If you're not familiar with Erno Laszlo, he was the premier skin care guru in New York City, his practice was frequented by the who's who of society and entertainment, for decades. His products and methods have been a staple of many beauties and that legacy continues, today.
The White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel is easy to use. First I cleanse my skin, of course. Then, pick up a generous dollop of the lightly citrus scented Step One scrub and work it into my skin for about three minutes then, add a dropper full of Step 2 Activator, work it well and let that all sit on my skin for a minute then rinse and voila! Silky smooth, glowing, fresh skin. Consistent use of Vitamin C in various forms has faded discolouration, brightened and evened out my skin tone and I think that it also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. A boon, to me at my age!
I like this peel, it is easy and pleasant to use, it does what it says it will do and if you feel like splashing out, this peel is a lovely little splurge. That said, I have purchased the same kind of two step Vitamin C peel for a much lower price point that worked just as well.
