I recently had the opportunity to work with The Natural Skin Shop. When I was in Cossmetology school I received Peels regularly. They are not the most comfortable thing in the world due to the "burning" sensation, but the after affects were always completely worth it. If there is one thing I miss about school, it would be the peels for sure!
I chose the Salicylic Acid 20% Medium Peel Kit for review
• Neutralizer Solution 2oz (60ml)
• Peel Prep Solution 2oz (60ml)
• Salicylic 20% Medium Peel 2oz (60ml)
• 100% Hyaluronic Replenish Serum 1oz (30ml)
Here is some basic information from their site:
HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEELING AGENT
Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid, is a highly effective superficial peeling agent, oil reducer and pore cleanser. One of the most effective ingredients to combat the cause of facial oil, acne and blemishes, as well as providing an excellent rejuvenation addition and alternative to Glycolic.
Salicylic acid loosens and removes aging cells, oil and debris attached to the skin surface. Salicylic is oil-soluble and lipophilic so it penetrates sebum filled follicles and clean out clogged pores, resulting in marked improvement in acne prone skin. Stimulates new healthy skin cell production and increased collagen formation.
SALICYLIC 20% MEDIUM PEEL SUITED TOWARDS
• Mature skin with previous peel experience.
• Acne scars, sun damage and blemishes.
• Oily, acneic, and combination skin types.
NEUTRALIZER SOLUTION SPRAY
Returns skin to a normal healthy pH level after a peel.
PEEL PREP SOLUTION
Helps to remove the sebum mantle and lower the pH level of the skin thus allowing the peel to penetrate properly.
SALICYLIC 20% MEDIUM PEEL
To deeply exfoliate and peel to jumpstart skin rejuvenation.
100% HYALURONIC REPLENISH SERUM
Helps by promoting the healing process and hydration post-peel. Also a great daily moisturizer.
I have extremely oily, acne prone skin, and large pores, therefore I use it once a week. This peel works wonders in helping to minimize all of the above. For dry skin, once a week use is not recommended, at least not in the beginning. You truly need to let your skin get used to the product. I also highly recommend a skin "patch" test a few days before to ensure there is no negative reaction.
The retail value of this particular product is $72.00 but right now, it's on sale for only $52.00!
Overall Opinion: Love it!
I can handle the burn and the stinging if it helps to make my skin less oily and more smooth! Definitely a thumbs up for me!
