Is Peel gel worth the hype?Which one is better?

Peeling gel is relatively new hype in the skincare community and a lot of brands these days are bringing such peeling gels in the market! There are many tyles of such peel gels available mostly inspired from K-beauty brands and I have thought about these two! ✨Firstly, what is peeling gel/enzyme srub?? ➡️Peeling gels help dissolve dead skin cells. When it is applied, it will ball up in tiny pieces, extracting dead skin cells as you gently rub the product on your face. The product reacts to the oil on the surface of your skin and creates clumps that help pick up dead skin cells. Not a lot of people compare these two but when I first heard about @wishful Glow enzyme scrubHUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub
I instantly thought about @saturdayskin Skin refining peel gel. SATURDAY SKIN - Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel
✨ They're very similar in function and application. ✨Both contain Papaya and Pineapple (Bromelain/ Ananas) extract ✨Glow enzyme scrub has AHA and BHA in it Saturday skin peel gel doesn't have it. ✨Pineapple extract works as natural gentle exfoliant anyway so there is mild chemical exfoliation that takes place in both of them. ✨Both have added perfume or essential oils to mask the chemical smell ✨Glow enzyme scrub is more liquidy than Saturday skin peel gel. It is thick gel scrub that lasts longer than Glow enzyme scrub. ✨Glow enzyme scrub has strong (perfume like) fragrance that I found a bit overwhelming. Saturday skin peel gel doesn't have overwhelming fragrance. ✨Both work similar way in peeling and forming white cellulite particles that look like dead skin coming off of your skin surface but actually that's just the product reacting with facial oils and binding together that way. ✨The results with using both of these are similar, smooth soft skin and over the time they both reduce the appearance of fine lines, texture and hyperpigmentation. 🌿My experience and conclusion: ✨These both help in giving you a smooth, soft skin instantly after each application. Does it work like chemical exfoliants? No. But it definitely helps in getting rid of some dead skin. ✨So which one do I think is better? @saturdayskin peel gel is much better in my opinion!! ❤️ Saturdayskin costs 28$ for 75 ml and Glow enzyme costs 39$ for 100$. But @saturdayskin peel gel lastsonger as you don't need a lot of it and because of it's thick texture you end up squeezing lesser than Glow enzyme. ☝️ It's a great product to have in your skincare collection although it's not necessary 👍 Have you tried this product??💖✨

Saturday Skin Favs
Love all the three products from Saturday skin. It’s great that the product is instagrammable, but Saturday skin is more than just a pretty face... it works great and delivers the result it promises. WIDE AWAKE BRIGHTENING EYE CREAM As far as eye creams go, this is one of the best I’ve used. The texture is more of a dense souffle-like gel than a cream. It hydrates and strengthens the delicate skin around the eyes,helping to reduce puffiness and dark circles. RUB-A-DUB REFINING PEEL GEL This is an exfoliator with a difference… Simply massage the gel into your face as you rub, the formula picks up the impurities and dead skin that clogs pores, causing it to visibly peel off in tiny balls. The result is super-smooth, exfoliated skin, but without the sting that acids and scrubs have. PORE CLARIFYING TONER This toner helps to address the look of skin tone and texture. It has witch hazel, tea tree oil, and red clover. The blend helps create the appearance of a smooth, pore-less complexion.

Get rid of dry patches instantly -Peeling gels
Do you get large or small dry flakey patches because of either colder weather or retinoids or acne treatments? I do get these dry flakey patches all the time with my retinoid use and sometimes when the air gets dry around me. But that isn't the main concern for me, these dry patches come in my way of getting a good flawless foundation routine. When I have an event or meeting to attend and if I have these dry patches it's hard for me to moisturize them and keep them moisturized and look good under my makeup. There was only one solution to such dry fkakey skin, that is Exfoliation!! I figured the quick exfoliating masks and solutions (chemical exfoliation) work but they did not get rid of those dry patches completely. So I tried these peeling gels before my morning shower and vola!! They instantly removed my dry patches and made my skin super soft and smooth for a flawless makeup application!! 😍❤️ I love using these both, @wishful Yo Glow enzyme scrub HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub @saturdayskin Rub-A-Dub Refining peel gel SATURDAY SKIN - Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel ✨ These both are refining physical exfoliators that work by creating white balled up action and pills when you rub it gently on your skin. They generally have chemical exfoliants as well like Papaya and pineapple enzymes as well as physical exfoliators. The lightweight, milky texture gently buffs away dead skin cells and impurities for immediate results that also makes the perfect canvas for seamless makeup application. You start off with a watery gel like this, which you spread over your face then you see the product balling up on your face creating this weird peeled skin texture. ✨But have you Wondered what is it exactly?? Is it your skin falling off or peeling that way? Is it just the product that's balling up and not exfoliate skin well? or is it just a gimmick?? The Answer is: peeling gels are actually a very gentle physical scrub – the scrubbing bits are the soft, bunched up fibres, which are usually made of bunched up acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer* (sometimes listed as “carbomer” in the ingredients list). Some gels also contain a lot of cellulose, which adds to the bunching effect (this is usually in the opaque ones) ☑️😍Conclusion: Peeling gels aren’t chemical exfoliants – they’re gentle physical exfoliants (scrubs). The fibres form from ingredients that are in the gel to begin with, balling up from the rubbing motion with some help from oils on your skin. There will be a small amount of dead skin in there too. I am a fan of Peeling gels, they definitely help me a lot with instant exfoliation without being crazy abrasive on my skin. This is the evidence I like physical exfoliants as much as I love chemical ones. 😊❤️ Have you used Peeling gels? Do you like them? Share your thoughts ❤️

Exfoliant for baby smooth skin 🧖🏽‍♀️
HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub One of my all time favorite exfoliant scrubs that actually works! 🍍 This products main ingredients are AHA’s, BHA’s, Papaya fruit extract & Pineapple fruit extract, which all work to remove dead skin cells, reduce the look of dark spots and improve skins texture and complexion while giving you a healthy glow. 🍍I use this product 2x a week at maximum because i do have sensitive skin, however this product is safe to use everyday as you gradually increase your tolerance with it. 🍍The downside of this product is that it does have less than 1% fragrance which can irritate the skin, I have not experienced any irritation using this product and have used it a handful of times, but everyone’s skin is different so make sure you do a patch test! 🍍Standard size of 3.38 oz/100mL goes for $39.00 they also offer a mini size of 1.35 oz/40 mL for $21 if you’re thinking of trying it! 🍍let me know if this product worked for you below👇 or if you have any thoughts 💭 questions & concerns 💕 PSA: i will be doing a giveaway at 500 followers so stay tuned thank you for all the love & support 💕🍒 #cheriecreator

My exfoliator series!!
I loveeeee to exfoliate and address one of my biggest skin concerns, texture. I’m just starting my skin care journey and these three were my first pick ups. Turmeric and apple cider vinegar are some of my favorite ingredients in cooking and also hair care. Turmeric is a great anti inflammatory and antioxidant and is known as a brightened of the skin as well. Apple cider vinegar has been known to treat blood pressure and also scalp conditions so I thought it would be a great gentle exfoliate for my face. Let’s start with the turmeric exfoliating mask. This mixed physical exfoliation with chemical. It has rosehip seeds and quartz which you can physically work in after leaving the mask on for awhile. The Bha comes from aspen bark and papaya. My skin does feel slightly softer after using this but not enough to pay 48 again. The brightening effect is minute as well. Now the Apple cider vinegar pads come in a box for 72(ridiculous) and a smaller sample box for 12. Thank god I got the sample because this did nothing for me. Maybe the acid is too gentle but I was extremely disappointed. Guess I will continue to ingest it via the gummies to get the benefits Finally, we have wishful yo glow which I will repurchase. It uses aha and bhas only and really smooths out my skin. It is reasonably priced at 39 and is available as a mini for 21. My downside is that it is heavily fragranced and it took time for me to cope with that. The product balls up and it isn’t dead skin alone but I believe the cellulose in the product clings to dead skin cells which I clearly see as the product which is white will turn grayish brown as I work it into my skin. Did I rant or what lol, I will continue my hunt for the perfect exfoliators for my collection and update u guys as I try them

Have you tried volition yet? T
Have you tried volition yet? This brand has been on my wishlist to try for a while now so I was so excited to get to try their Apple Cider Vinegar Resurfacing Peel Pads (still dying to try their strawberry 🍓 serum)!⁣ ▫️Key Ingredient: Apple Cider Vinegar, obvi (full of antioxidants vitamins A, C, and E + Alpha Hydroxy Acids to remove dead skin cells, promote cell renewal purify clogged pores & diminish the appearance of dark spots & blemishes for brighter skin)⁣ ▫️My Thoughts: I was nervous that these peel pads would smell & burn like apple cider vinegar BUT they don’t! The scent isn’t unpleasant at all and I didn’t experience any irritation with them - I’ve only used them 3 times so far but after each use my skin looked brighter, for sure! I can’t wait to keep using them because I have a feeling they are going to keep my pores clear and my skin looking radiant!⁣

ALL ABOUT Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)
ALL ABOUT Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA)
When on your skincare journey you will come across Alpha Hydroxy (AHA) acids. These acids if used right in your skincare routine you will see great benefits from them in your skin. Here we are going to talk about What AHA’s are, The benefits of AHA’s and how to use them. 🎀ITS IMPORTANT TO ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW A PRODUCTS WORKS OR DOESN’T WORK FOR ONE MAY OR NOT WORK FOR ANOTHER. SKIN IS UNIQUE 🎀 🌼What Is Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA’s)🌼 AHA’s are acids from plant( fruits) and animals (milk) used in skincare products. There are different types of AHA’s here are a few : Glycolic Acid comes from sugar cane 🎀my fav🎀 Lactic Acid comes from lactose Citric Acid comes from citrus fruit ( oranges, lemon etc) 🎀my fav 🎀 Hydroxycaproic Acid comes from royal jelly ( honey bee secretions) 🌸Before using AHA’s it’s important to know your skin type and what skin concerns you’re targeting🌸 🌺The Benefits Of AHA’s 🌺 AHA’s are exfoliators. They remove dead skin and help skin cell turn over. AHA’s also help with collagen production and dark spots. AHA’s reduces breakouts, smooths fine lines and wrinkles,brightens complexion and helps product absorb better. 🌹How To Use AHA’s🌹 AHA’s are in face wash, serums, toners,mask etc. I suggest slowly introducing AHA’s into your routine. 1 product like a face wash or serum. See how your skin reacts and adjust accordingly. Too much use of acid in skin routine isn’t good because you can over exfoliate the skin which can lead to irritation and breakouts. Also when using AHA’s it’s important to always moisturize. 🌻I ALWAYS RECOMMEND DOING YOUR OWN RESEARCH 🌻 MY FAVORITE AHA PRODUCTS Nolaskinsentials - Glycolic Foam Cleanser DERMA•E - Vitamin C Instant Radiance Citrus Facial Peel Any questions about AHA’s comment below and good luck with your skincare journey ❤️ #cheriecreator

Saturday Skin’s Rub-a-Dub Refining Peel Gel is a physical exfoliant that helps “say goodbye to dullness” and uses enzymes like papaya & pineapple to gently exfoliate. It’s good for all skin types and targets dullness/uneven skin texture. The texture of the product is a gel and very soft. It has little blue beads you can see, but also feels like there are littler particles (similar to sand) when applying. I got this product in Boxycharm’s skincare box and really enjoy it. The little blue beads are so gentle but my skin still feels really smooth and brighter after using. I use a physical exfoliator once a week to help get rid of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. The first time I used this, I went in too aggressively and my face was irritated and red. Since that first time, I’ve been much more gentle and work in circular motions and haven’t had any issues! With regards to price ($28 for 2.5 oz) and effort, I think it’s worth it! I have physical exfoliators I like better, but if you like a gentler face scrub, this product is for you and I would recommend it! SATURDAY SKIN - Rub-A-Dub Refining Peel Gel

The HERBIVORE - Prism 20% AHA + 5% BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial is a chemical exfoliant facial mask. The consistency of this mask is gel-like and it contains no fragrance or dyes. This is a very powerful mask, as 20% AHA is an amount that should be built up to and not immediately used as a novice. When using the mask, a thin layer must be applied to clean skin and left on for no more than 20 minutes (no more than 10 mins for sensitive skin types). A warm tingling sensation is normal, if you feel any burning or pain remove immediately with warm water. This product must be removed in its entirety with warm water, and can only be used for a max of 1 or 2 times a week due to its potency. You should not follow up with any product that contains Hydroxy acids or acne treatment, a simple basic moisturizer should be used if needed. After using this facial mask I do notice that my skin appears brighter, and in the following days any texture has been reduced. This retails for $58 at Sephora (was sent to me as a gift). The dr. brandt - Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator With a Heart is also a chemical exfoliant facial product however, this product in addition to AHAs contains “professional grade” exfoliating crystals in order to assist with the removal of dead skin. This is an unnecessary addition to the product. One thing that I have learned in my research of skin care is that physical and chemical exfoliation should not be used together. Although the company claims that the crystals are professional grade, physical exfoliants are known to cause micro tears in the skin that will lead to long term damage. Before finding this out, I found this product very harsh on my skin even though I only used it once a week. After discovering this though, I stopped using the dr Brandt product altogether. This retails for $79 at Sephora (I received it as part of a boxycharm).

 I’ve only used this Overnight
I’ve only used this Overnight Facial Peel from Versed a few times, but let me just tell you about the first time 🤭 this product truly blew my mind!! The morning after I applied The Shortcut, I washed my face and felt this smoothness on my forehead that I hadn’t felt in a long time. My forehead usually has a lot of texture that can be seen especially when my skin gets oily. I had just come back from traveling the day before, which always gives me some forehead congestion. I was really surprised that some of those forehead bumps went away so quickly. Later on my friend complimented my skin so of course I said I probably owe it to this one. The Shortcut has lactic and glycolic acid as well as Vitamin A to gently exfoliate and brighten. You’re supposed to use it at night, skipping the rest of your usual routine and applying it after you cleanse. I was even fine with skipping a moisturizer since it felt pretty moisturizing in itself. If you have dry skin you may want to moisturize after, just listen to how your skin feels. -Dax ❤️

SaturdaySkin's rub-a-dub Refin
SaturdaySkin's rub-a-dub Refining Peel Gel and I’m seriously obsessed! This here is a dermatologist tested, paraben, sulfate, synthetic fragrance, synthetic color and cruelty-free peeling gel formulated with natural enzymes like papaya, bromelain (sourced from pineapples ) and powerful peptides for a gentle removal of impurities and dead skin from the surface of the skin. Natural cellulose fibers from European beech and spruce trees also aid in picking up gunk from the skin gently and naturally. How I like to use this gel is twice over - I rub it all over my face in circular motions for the first time around, get some dead skin off of there, wash it all off, then for a deeper cleanse I like to apply it all over my face again and really rub a lot on one particular area until all the dead skin is gone. Gross, but oh so satisfying. I am so incredibly pleased with the results from using this - my skin is left *so* soft and so smooth, and all the extra dead skin I had on and around my nose, that no physical scrubs have been helpful with, vanished. This little guy is a miracle worker. Also, can we please talk about how adorable the packaging is?! Saturday Skin, thank you so much for blessing my skin with this treasure
