I simply could not resist this product Aqua Reveal Satin Bright Soft Water Peel (3.4oz/$49)--it just sounds so...nice, so... refreshing, so...pure and light. I also love exfoliators to the ends of the earth! This one "effectively and visibly sweeps away dead skin cells without harsh acids, scrubs or enzymes." Suitable for all skin types, this peel has a host of benefits such as:
*Visibly brighten and instantly improve radiance and texture of skin
*Great prep for makeup application
*Sweeps away debris that may interfere with beneficial serums and creams
*Complements any skincare regimen
*Gentle for all skin types
*Water based and contains over 95% natural or organic ingredients
You simply apply it after washing your face and massage it onto the skin to release all the skin debris and gunk that has accumulated. It may be used longer for a deeper exfoliation and then rinsed away. Usage can be up to 2-3 times per week.
It's housed in a pump dispenser and is clear and water-like in consistency in a gel formulation. It has a very mild medicinal scent that is completely inoffensive. Here it is:
So, was my skin all satin-like after using this peel?
Verdict: I liked this peel because it was so gentle on my skin. Usually with exfoliation, you may have to deal with some redness or stinging. With this one, it just felt cool and refreshing. I massaged it in and immediately it started to ball up dead skin and lord knows what other stuff that was on my face. I rubbed it in pretty vigorously and then rinsed with warm water. My skin immediately felt softer and smoother. I applied my other skincare products and went to bed. The next morning, my face appeared brighter and still felt smooth with nary a breakout in site. This was love! I especially liked how easy it was to use with the pump dispenser while at the same time being very sanitary too! Aqua Reveal, you are the real deal!
