Hi again ! 2 posts in one day – Yeah – I am catching up!
A review on a peel that’s all over the place !
Skin Inc is a brand from Japan and this is how the peel is described on their website
Revolutionary non-abrasive peel that visibly but gently removes dullness and dead skin cells. Preps skin to maximize absorption of nutrients from your daily skincare products and acts like a dynamic primer to create the perfect canvas for your makeup. Combines high-performance ingredients AC-11, Arbutin and Fullerene to revive your skin’s youthful vitality.
0% added scent and paraben
I thought Wow this looks so interesting!
– Except for the alcohol content –
A little more about what the ingredients do
AC-11 is derived from an Amazon River basin plant called Cat’s Claw (Uncaria tomentosa), which has long been used in Peruvian traditional medicines to treat skin redness, blistering, and pain from sun exposure. AC-11 activates formation of new outer layers of the skin, bringing fresh cells to the surface and shedding old dull rough cells. These new layers, by the action of AC-11, also contain higher levels of skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF). So the skin is better hydrated, more resistant to water loss, and less rough, creating a smooth surface for applying other skin care products.Another remarkable effect of AC-11 is repair. It is a potent enhancer of DNA repair, helping the skin recover from damage and stress. And adding in its anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, AC-11 helps create more youthful skin that is healthier and more resistant to the damaging effects of sunlight.
The second high performance ingredient in Pure Revival Peel is fullerene. This carbon molecule has been called a free radical sponge, mopping up oxygen radicals to prevent them from harming the skin. Since our anti-oxidant defenses decline with age, fullerene supplements our anti-oxidant shield. This protects skin from the environment, making it more resistant to the aging effects of sunlight. Fullerene also combats blemishes. How does it do that Oxidation of skin’s sebum is a suspected cause of acne. Clinical testing has shown that preventing oxidation with fullerene reduces blemishes, providing a more vital, healthy, youthful skin.
The third high performance ingredient is arbutin. This technology is known to block formation of excess melanin. The result is less hyper-pigmented spots and more even skin color, providing a more youthful vital appearance. Pure Revival Peel also contains Aloe extract. This ingredient has long been used for its anti-inflammatory (skin smoothing) and moisturizing effects on skin. These effects calm and hydrate the skin.
My thoughts –
Pretty amazing – I was a little Scaredy Cat – before use- I tried it on my hand – anywhere but my face!
No irritation …
Cool little tube and the product is scentless and easy to use.
I use it on a clean face. You don’t need much. About a dime size for the entire face.
Let stand on the face for about 10 seconds and gently massage in circular motion- Avoid eye area…..
What happens is pretty interesting.
I am not gonna show You on my face – Seriously – It’s not a pretty picture …
Dead skin starts to ball up and is gently sloughed off.
Here is My arm …….I am telling you – Anything Extra that is not supposed to be on your face -comes off …
any blackhead – all impurities.
See the little balls of skin- That is all dead! See why I would’t want to show you on my face!
After the dead skin is sloughed off – You rinse gently with warm water and resume with your regular skincare routine.
Very very very Interesting – and NO REDNESS AFTER .
Just smoother skin.
I plan on using this 2x a week.
Hope You enjoyed my review !
