Hi lovies!! <3 <3
Friday afternoons are for ME-TIME & exfoliating!!!! My loves, I just exfoliated with Peter (WHO THE EFF IS PETER, right? I’m talking Peter Thomas Roth!) & IT WAS F-AMAZING.
Ladies & gents, this is my review of The Gentlest Peel You Ever Did See: Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel a.k.a. This-Babe-Takes-Exfoliating-to-a-Whole-New-Level-Basically-an-Exfoliating-Dream-Come-True.
Basically, this is a peeling gel that rolls, lifts & sweeps away dead skin cells when massaged onto skin. And let me tell you, IT DOES SO INSTANTLY & SO EFFORTLESSLY!! Like, the second I put her on, I was legit watching the dead skin come off, AND THE BEST PART IS, unlike a lot of other exfoliating scrubs, this one is SUPER GENTLE (It doesn’t feel abrasive & seriously will not dry you out!!), all while accomplishing exactly what it should! We are in such a “best of both worlds” sitch RN. Basically, if you want to see our skin’s texture improve STAT, go for this baby! I’m telling y’all! I fell in INSTANTLY IN LOVE & you will too (We can share Peter. I’ll be nice this time, BUT JUST THIS ONCE, don’t get used to it!!!).
Okay, but you’re probably wondering how this baby really works, right? Listen to this: Multiaction enzymes (I’m talking pineapple, pomegranate & keratinase!!) & cellulose work together to peel and help uncover a smooth, FRESH, new complexion without drying, irritating or causing any redness! P.S. In case you were wondering, cellulose is an irritation-free gentle exfoliant that helps smooth the appearance of skin!
OH & this peel also contains glycerine & hyaluronic acid, which are essentially substances used to reduce the loss of moisture & ergo, help SOOTHE & HYDRATE your skin!
FUN FACT: Hyaluronic Acid actually helps improve hydration by attracting and retaining up to 1,000 times its weight in water from moisture in the air. It is a super up & coming ingredient used in A LOT of skincare products these days. Basically, this ingredient has powerful anti-aging properties & is one of the premier hydrating ingredients for ALL SKIN TYPES (Yes, even oily, sensitive or breakout-prone skin!) & will deliver supple, healthy-looking & less-lined skin!
GUYS, literally the second I washed this peel off, my skin felt SO CLEAN, SMOOTH & PURE and looked WONDERFUL! I legit look like a 14 year old, ergo, THIS BABE WILL HELP RESTORE YOUR SKIN’S YOUTHFULNESS (BUH-BYE wrinkles!).
Aside from doing EXACTLY what it says it does, this baby is super easy to apply! The peel can actually be used in two ways (which is super cool, if you ask me, because you can totz change it up every now & then depending on what you feel your skin needs/is lacking!)
- You can either apply it & massage in a circular motion right away to sweep away your dead skin cells OR;
- If you want to activate that enzymatic extra-exfoliation, you can leave it on for 1-5 minutes & then rinse (That’s what I did & WOAH! What a difference!!!).
One thing I would definitely recommend (as I would with all peels/exfoliating masks) is to MOISTURIZE your skin right after you wash the peel off (Preferably with an ultra-hydrating moisturizer). I used my Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel (WHICH, BY THE WAY, I ADORE).
NOW, the MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION: Is she worth the price? TOTALLY!!!!
For $60, you are getting a HIGH-QUALITY CLINICAL SKIN CARE PRODUCT, THAT I CAN CONFIRM & AFFIRM, TRULY DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT SAYS IT DOES. I don’t know about you munchkins but skincare has become SO IMPORTANT TO ME (Especially since I’ve seen such an improvement in my complexion ever since I started taking a HUGE interest in skincare & beauty products) & I genuinely believe that when you find a good product, IT IS WORTH THE INVESTMENT (YEP, EVERY SINGLE PENNY, uh, even though pennies don’t exist anymore. Whatevz, you catch my drift). Anywho, I don’t really think I have much convincing to do anyway… I see a new item in your Sephora cart RN & I’m pretty sure it’s got PETER THOMAS ROTH written all over it.
ANYWHO, If you’re hesitating, TAKE MY ADVICE – TAKE THE PLUNGE – MAKE THE PURCHASE – YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT MY LOVES!
OHHHH, right. The pre & post-peel pics! DUH!
& NOW, for that POST-PEEL GLOW!
