This must be one of the most underrated antioxidants offered by Garden of Wisdom.
I really really love the BLT-RC Serum. It's extremely hydrating and healing. I had a pimple near my eyebrow one night. It was itching a little but nothing I couldn't tolerate. After an hour of applying my cranberry HA, BLT-RC Serum and grapeseed oil mix, the pimple burst and clotted over nicely. I didn't even remember touching or picking at it! This happened a second time yesterday. I had a little pimple on my cheek. I took a short nap after lunch and when I woke up the pimple had burst and clotted over too! This time I was 100% sure I didn't pick at it. I'm a really light sleeper so I wake up even when I'm scratching myself sub-consciously. The best thing is that the clots disappear the very next day! My friend told me my skin was looking great. I was having a bout of purging/irritation just two days back and she noticed the difference because she had seen my skin back then and now. I'll be buying her a sample to try and she's really excited about it.
I just finished my sample size BLT-C-serum. This serum really makes my skin happy! It has great hydrating properties and is very effective against fine lines caused by dehydration. It has a pleasant, sweet scent (that's the tamarind, I guess) and a nice, velvety texture.
I am loving the BLT-RC serum so far, I've used it for 3 evenings. My skin is calm, no more flakey spots, feels soft and breakout areas (partly from travel, partly from cleaning oil purging) are healing nicely finally. Although I got lots of other goodies in my recent order the BLT-RC is the only new thing I've added so far. I'm really happy.
BLT-RC is the one product I would choose to have on me if i was stuck on a deserted island. definitely the blt-rc. i use it on cooking burns (more effective than aloe vera) and it's very hydrating. ♥♥♥ BLT-RC.
Our Exclusive BLT-RC specifically addresses mature, damaged, and/or photo-aged and sensitive skin. Tamarind extract helps to repair, moisturize, and hydrate damaged skin, making this a great choice for dry and dehydrated skin profiles. Amped up with powerful L-Carnosine, a type of anti-oxidant that protects cells, allowing them to live longer, works in beautiful synergy with R-ALA. R-ALA is a multi-purpose antioxidant that neutralizes both water and fat soluble free radicals, therefore protecting cells more vigilantly.
More Information Regarding L-Carnosine
L-Carnosine is an endogenous [resulting from conditions within the organism] free-radical scavenger. The latest research indicates that apart from the function of protecting cells from oxidation-induced stress damage, carnosine appears to be able to extend the lifespan of cultured cells, rejuvenate senescent cells, inhibit the toxic effects of amyloid peptide (A beta), malondialdehyde, and hypochlorite to cells, inhibit glycosylation of proteins and protein-DNA and protein-protein cross-linking, and maintain cellular homeostasis.
Method of Application
Apply one to two times a day, during the water soluble phase of your routine (after you cleanse, tone, and exfoliate ... before you apply any creams, lotions, or oils).
