Is that really dead skin?

Is that really dead skin?

PETER THOMAS ROTH - Firmx Peeling Gel
First let’s talk about what peeling gels really are. Peeling gels contain ingredients such as cellulose or carbomer. These ingredients interact with any oils on your skin and start to clump once rubbed in. So to answer the question, the white clumps are not your skin cells falling off. These gels are safe to use daily in my opinion, but sensitive skin be cautious and always patch test. Peeling gels are a mechanical form of exfoliation, but I do recommend them since they are much more gentle on the skin compared to harsh scrubs with beads and grains. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Firmx Peeling Gel
This particular peel contains cellulose. The soft cellulose acts like grains in a scrub and effectively buff off dead skin cells that are ready to come off. It contains pineapple, pomegranate, and keratinase enzymes to help loosen up and exfoliate dead skin. The glycerin and hyaluronic acid help soothe and hydrate skin. Final thoughts, it’s a much better option of mechanical exfoliation because I don’t endorse harsh and scratchy scrubs with grains at all. It’s instant gratification because you want to believe those white clumps are clumps of dead skin, but it is the cellulose interacting with your skin. If used as a mask and left on for 5-10 minutes and then rubbed off you will get better results because you allow the enzymes to work and loosen dead skin. The reason I gave this product 4 stars is because of the price point. I will not be spending $48 for a peeling gel again because I can spend much less on chemical exfoliation which is my favorite and most effective form of exfoliation.

My Favorite Exfoliating Products
I know a lot of ppl believe that physically exfoliating can harm the skin. However, I am not of those people. I like to use both Physical and Chemical exfoilants and believe they each have their own benefits as long as you’re using the correct products for your skin and nothing too harsh. Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser - This is my Holy Grail Exfoliating Cleanser. It’s has a blend Of salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic acid to polish away dull, dry skin without irritation. The “beads” in the product are very fine tiny jojoba beads which adds more moisture and hydration so my skin doesn’t dry out. It Reveals smoother texture and a brighter younger looking complexion. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Firmx Peeling Gel - I love to use the gel when my skin is feeling really sensitive but I still need it exfoliate. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or Abrasive beads, it’s a light gel that you rub on your face and the dead skin literally rolls off! It contains Enzymes from fruit and Cellulose to effectively remove impurities and purify clogged pores. My skin is always super smooth after, this is perfect for someone with sensitive skin. JUICE BEAUTY - GREEN APPLE Peel Full Strength Exfoliating Mask - juice Beauty is a great organic, vegan, clean beauty brand that uses all natural ingredients. This peel I also have in the Sensitive Skin Version. It uses acids derived from fruits to give you a brighter complexion. It does have a thick texture and an odd smell, but for the benefits it’s worth it. Murad - Intensive-C Radiance Peel - This is a chemical peel that’s a Rich Gel cream with antioxidants, Glycolic acid and Indian Fig Extract refine skin by gently dissolving dead skin cells and improves texture and tone. Potent Vitamin C enhances radiance and luminosity. This product is definitely the strongest of the chemical peels I own but it really does brighten and reduce my pores.

suisai - Beauty Clear Powder THIS-! this was also introduced by Rowena Tsai on youtube channel, @beautywithin. The active enzymes in the powder gently removes excess sebum and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin that can clog pores and cause breakouts. BUT it’s still moisturizing! It’s gentle but still exfoliates you’re skin! I’m not sure if this was placebo affect but I think noticed a major difference with the softness of my skin after just one use! I didn’t really feel the physical powder and it just felt like a cleanser after I had mixed it with water 💦 I would get this again! Just don’t really like how it comes in individual packets because you know, the environment 🤷‍♀️

I got this pack of 10 facial radiance pads from this K-Beauty brand I had never heard of before. After doing some research I found out that the founder started the company when her mom was struggling to find clean products to help with her eczema. I was worried these might dry me out or cause me to peel but they didn’t! I am shocked by how moisturizing these were. Each pad is nice and juicy so it doesn’t tug at your skin in any way. My complexion feels brighter with much less discoloration. Also my pores (on my cheeks specifically) are way less noticeable to me. While using this product I took a break from the Pixi Glow tonic and my dermatological treatment just to be safe. If I decide to repurchase I will likely only use these a few times a week so that I can continue to use my other products. huangjisoo - Sakura Peeling Radiance Pads

i received this holifrog cleanser in PR and i’m obsessed with the brand now. on the bottle, they tell you the pH level of the cleanser and when to use it. for example, this milky wash has a pH level of 5, which is perfect for keeping my skins balance right where i want it on an everyday usage to keep sebum production at bay. a build up of sebum causes blackheads and clogged pores, and i find that this cleanser is great for minimizing those concerns. the texture is milky, as the name suggests, and lathers super nicely. i like to use in on my vanity planet spin brush with a silicone head! i’ve been using this cleanser for over a month and find it be super gentle and not drying, which is why it’s my new favorite cleanser that i use every night. i use it as a second cleanse, after my farmacy green clean! i do think the product is worth it at $38 dollars a bottle. the price is a little more expensive, but i think comparable to other washes on the market. what sets holifrog apart for me is that they tell you the pH balance of all their washes and why each one is right for your skin. i think that’s super helpful for all levels of skincare knowledge, from beginners to pros. plus the packaging is adorable, so i’d recommend it to all my friends. overall, i give this a 4/5 star rating. i do love the cleanser and use it every day, but the reason for one less star is the price. i do think nearly $40 for a cleanser is a bit pricy.

Affordable&Amazing! This is a Game Changer for Oily Skin!!!
Affordable&Amazing! This is a Game Changer for Oily Skin!!!
I have oily and acne-prone skin, which means I’m always dealing with clogged and enlarged pores, especially in the forehead nose (the T-zone😖). When pores are clogged, it can result in blackheads, acne and dull skin. My skin is also a little sensitive so my idea of the perfect exfoliator is one that can eliminate all that trapped dirt and debris without being harsh on the skin. My sister who studied in Japan recommended suisai - Beauty Clear Powder . I was a bit sceptical at first as it's packaged into tiny capsules which I've never tried before and the fine powder granules didn’t seem very scrub-like at all.  However, my impression on the texture changed once I added water, as it lathered into a rich, bouncy foam almost immediately. I just used my finger to lather it up into foam like this, but some skincare tools like foaming mesh can do a better job. After just one use, I did feel that my face was squeaky clean, but not in a drying kind of way. And that my PM routine of toner and moisturiser didn’t feel as heavy. The MOST amazing thing is that the products effectively removed my blackheads!!! I just cleaned my nose with the bouncy foam to soften the blackheads, then use the needle remover to gently remove them. Don't forget to apply some aloe vera gel after that. I'm really amazed at the result! The product contains two different enzymes and amino acid cleansing ingredients that will exfoliate your skin by removing keratin plugs, residue in pores and reducing roughness. The smaller exfoliants that are designed to lift away dead skin cells on the surface before they get trapped in your pores. It's SUPER convenient for weekend trip as I don't have to worry about squeezing out too much product or about spillage in my luggage. I bought it for $24 (32 capsules per pack) and I think its worth it! I'll DEF repurchased it!
