An Exfoliant Ideal for Sensitive Skin
Another amazing product from ELF and this product is definitely perfect for every eye, lip, and face 😉😉. It is a gentle exfoliating peel that works great for all skin types, it isn’t to harsh on the skin and leaves skin with a nice natural healthy glow. It has a consistency similar to a gommage peel, the only difference is once you apply water to your face the contents dissolve into the skin making it easier to remove the product. I have used gommage peels in the past and honestly wasn’t really a fan. I felt like they were a bit messy and constantly got stuck to my peach fuzz and even at times my baby hair. This peeling exfoliant does not have that problem and actually provides physical results even after the first use. I was fairly surprised the first time I used this product because of the glow my skin had afterwards. My skin looked bright, radiant, healthy, and had a nice shine to it. This peeling exfoliant is gentle enough for everyday use and from my experience caused absolutely no irritation what so ever. It smells very nice and contains some pretty fantastic ingredients. The packaging at times can be a little faulty. Don’t get me wrong I love the pump aspect but sometimes it gets jammed and I end up having to unscrew the top to get the product out because the pump isn’t working properly. All in all that isn’t a deal breaker for me so I continue to buy this product but just be aware that the pump can be difficult at times. Considering all the great ingredients in this exfoliant and the results provided the price seems insane to me. This peeling exfoliant only costs 10$ on elf’s website. I know I’m not the only beauty lover and skincare enthusiast that loves a good bargain on some good quality skincare. So in my opinion the price is definitely worth a mention.
Moving on some of the key ingredients that stood out for me was tangerine, papaya extract, and licorice root. Tangerine contains high levels of vitamin A and is great for those who have acne, pimples, and other minor skin issues. Tangerine works great as a peel and can help speed up the healing process for minor wounds and scrapes. Papaya extract has skin lightening properties that help clear blemishes and dark spots. The enzyme papain, along with with the alpha-hydroxy acids, acts as a powerful exfoliator and dissolves inactive proteins and dead skin cells. Working as a great exfoliant to help improve skin’s complexion and provide a softer base. Licorice root is known for helping to soothe and calm irritated skin. Licorice root is very beneficial in helping those with atopic dermatitis and other skin conditions that involve redness and irritation.
Elf cosmetics gentle peeling exfoliant has ingredients that exfoliate skin but also balance skin in the process. Helping to prevent the skin from looking inflamed and irritated. I wouldn’t necessarily say I have super sensitive skin but I do often get irritation from using exfoliating skincare products especially depending on the strength and ingredients in each product. So it’s great to know that their is a product I can rely on to help exfoliate my skin but isn’t to overwhelming in strength. If you are looking for a gentle peeling exfoliant and have sensitive/reactive skin than I highly recommend trying this product out. It might work really well for you.
