    The Cache Member—Ourself

    Looking to replace the results of lasers with topical skincare, the experts at Ourself got to work inventing proprietary, deeply absorbent peptides that—in tandem with powerful ingredients such as vitamin C and niacinamide—help do everything from decrease dark spots to increase skin firmness.

    While some peels on the market have been problematic for more melanin-rich skin, Ourself asked testers with medium to deep skin tones to try the Ourself Brightening Peel and they saw brighter, more radiant complexions. Consider using fewer layers when applying (especially the first few times), and balancing that by doing a second peel treatment 4 weeks later. Slower and steadier will win you the more even-toned look you want. This Peel is self-neutralizing. Do not rinse skin until the next time you plan to wash your face. 

    Please Be Aware:

    • Wait at least 2 weeks, and preferably 4 weeks, after getting another strong treatment. This applies to the Ourself peels, too! Let your skin fully recover.
    • Once opened, Brightening Peel should be used or carefully disposed of within 3 months. To save extra solution, pop on the extra storage cap that is provided in the Accessory Kit and save for your next peel day. 
    • Store upright in a cool, dark place, away from pets, children and jostling; (it's best if the opened solution doesn't spill as it can cause damage to some surfaces; we suggest leaving it home when you travel).

    • Glycolic Acid: Brightening Peel contains a 34% concentration of this powerful alpha hydroxy acid. This improves the appearance of even skin tone and texture over the course of a few days after treatment. Skin looks smoother, brighter, and revitalized. Also helps reduce the appearance of pores. 
    • Tranexamic Acid: A favorite among dermatologists, tranexamic acid is known to target uneven pigmentation and helps reduce visible skin redness. 
    • Phytic Acid: A great antioxidant booster commonly used in hyperpigmentation treatments. This antioxidant helps to reduce the look of redness and irritation.
    • Vitamin C + Gold: Vitamin C is a known skin brightener and powerful antioxidant. We use a highly stable version created by bonding vitamin c to a particle of pure gold, which helps ensure it is more effectively delivered to the skin.
