Is that really dead skin?
PETER THOMAS ROTH - Firmx Exfoliating Peel 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 Exfoliating Peel 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.

Peeling Face Masks: $50👎🏼 vs $7 👏🏼
Both of these exfoliating masks are meant to “peel” away dead skin. They are at very different price points: the PTR facial is $48 and The Ordinary’s is only $7. The main thing I did not like about the PTR facial is that it claims to “roll away impurities”, but this is something that cannot really be accomplished just by applying a gel to your face. The rolling and pilling that occurs is just a result of the product not absorbing into your skin and pilling on itself. I really feel like it truly is just the product that pills up and not any dead skin. I really did not feel a huge difference at all after using this, and am a little suspicious that they made these “peeling” claims! I also felt like I had to use a large amount of product to achieve this “pilling” effect, so I feel like the product would run out quickly.Plus for $50 I want an exfoliating mask that makes a noticeable difference. The Ordinary’s peeling mask, however, is really amazing for the price. The color is neat and you can see where you have applied it, and you can feel it working on your skin. Be careful not to apply too much the first couple of times because it can burn a little bit. I use one dropper of it all over my face and this is the perfect amount. After I wash it off I really feel like my skin feels refreshed and my pores look smaller. Plus, for $7, you really can’t beat it!

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 Exfoliating Peel 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.

MY SKINCARE CABINET
i love collecting skincare and i always have more on the way..... these are my current products!!! highlights include: SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil literally anyone who thinks retinol may be too much for their sensitive skin should use this product first. retinol is said to dry the skin, but this product contains calming ingredients such as blue tansy and german chamomile. this is such a great starter product for retinol and i’ve repurchased! Then I met you - The Giving Essence this is new for me. i’ve been using it for a couple weeks now, and i love it! it makes my skin feel so fresh honestly and sandwiched between my toner and my serum i feel like this works wonders. Then I met you - Living Cleansing Balm also new for me! it feels so luxurious and i love it. it smells so nice and clean. i’ll use this when i have a heavy makeup day instead of my TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser (which is also amazing for the first step of a double cleanse). DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum it’s amazing. this in tandem with the sunday riley mask (mentioned below) saved my skin. any breakouts now are gone within 3 days after sprouting on my skin. it feels nice and a little goes a long way! SON & PARK - Beauty Water i use this in the morning after cleansing in the shower and i feel like it just gives me the freshest face before applying serums and sunscreen. it smells like citrus and removes any dead skin cells from your skin. it also looks so minimalistic and pretty. SUNDAY RILEY - Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask if you know me, you know this is my holy grail mask. it literally cleared the texture on my forehead (i believe it was fungal acne). i use this 1-2 times a week, but lately i’ve been doing research and find that this may be discontinued? it’s never in stock online anywhere... which worries me. VERSED - BABY CHEEKS this is my favorite toner to use right after working out. it makes my skin feel fresh and rids the skin of the dirty sweat that just seeped out of my pores. RENÉE ROULEAU - Anti Bump Solution (formerly named Anti Cyst Treatment) i use this almost every night (probably 4-5 times a week) in spots that i usually break out in. it keeps my chin from breaking out really badly which is an amazing quality to find in a product when wearing a mask for a 12-hour shift. HERO COSMETICS - Rescue Balm sooooo great especially for that price point! think neosporin but specifically for pimples and zits. it clears them nearly overnight. comment for any other specific reviews you wanna hear! i have more products on the way that i’d love to talk about as well. :)
