Alchimie Forever Gentle Refining Scrub Review

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)
Alchimie Forever is a phenomenal line created by a dermatologist and a biomedical researcher who wanted to create the best and most effective products that were gentle enough to be used post-procedure in office and at-home. The result of their hard work is an amazingly effective and gentle line of products that are luxurious and a delight to use.

The origin of Alchimie Forever is based on the need for post-procedure skincare formulated to immediately treat sensitized skin and accentuate anti-aging benefits long term. This conviction directed our brand’s progression as effective yet gentle formulations utilizing the latest in Alchimie Antioxidant Technology, supporting visible results for all skin types, especially sensitive. Scientific integrity. At the heart of Alchimie Forever. The Polla family’s dedication to the development of anti-aging technologies, research of antioxidants and the use of lasers in dermatology led to the creation of Alchimie Forever. We firmly believe that healthy skin can be achieved using effective botanicals designed to inspire sustainable beauty. Self-care. Self-renewal. Self-appreciation.

Dr. Luigi Polla - world-renowned dermatologist recognized as the first medical doctor to introduce pulsed dye laser technology to Europe. His pioneering treatment of children suffering from skin issues such as hemangiomas and port wine stains eventually led to the use of pulsed dye laser technology in the aesthetic treatment of adults.

Dr. Barbara Polla - biomedical researcher specializing in internal medicine, pneumology, immuno-allergy and anti-aging technologies. Her extensive work with heat shock (stress) proteins, the oxidant/ antioxidant balance and iron chelation, published in 150+ peer-reviewed medical journals, is the foundation of our anti-aging product formulation.

In 1997, Dr. Barbara and Dr. Luigi Polla combined their knowledge of and passion for healthy, youthful skin by establishing the first fully integrated European medical day spa known as the Forever Laser Institut. This became the starting point for Alchimie Forever, manifested through Dr. Luigi Polla’s earliest personalized formulations to ensure optimal rejuvenation results for his patients, both immediately post-procedure and at-home.
Alchimie Forever Gentle Refining Scrub not only brightens and evens out skin tone, but it does so while simultaneously nourishing and softening the skin. This gentle scrub is formulated for all skin types, but addresses the specific needs of "sensitive or sensitized skin."  It is the dual action of the physical and enzyme exfoliants that make this such a highly effective scrub. The physical exfoliating particles lift dead skin cells while the enzymes dissolve them. I like to apply the scrub to slightly damp skin and allow it to sit for a few minutes like a mask in order for it loosen and dissolve some of the excess dead skin before I employ the physical exfoliants by gently massaging it on my face. The end result is gloriously soft, smooth, exfoliated skin that glows. It is so gentle and effective that I can use it twice a week without traumatizing my skin in any way.

 - brightens and evens out skin tone
 - removes dead skin cells

This silky scrub leaves the skin soft and glowing. The synergies between cranberry beads, jojoba pearls, and papaya extract effectively exfoliate the skin, both mechanically and enzymatically. Simultaneously, shea butter nourishes, while natural antioxidants derived from lychee and rosemary protect the skin against environmental stress.
