Hello my Beauties,
Monday is here… WE LOVE MONDAYS RIGHT?
Lets start this morning with a refreshing and relaxing thought … Peeling
Hmm! Suddenly the word peeling sounds painful…
Relax… This kind of peeling is everything but painful 🙂
I want to start by giving you some important information on face peel.
What is face peeling?
Consider this information From Dr. Herschenfeld and Alexiades-Armenakas…..
“Peels typically contain the same ingredients as dermatologists’ peels but in lower concentrations. They gently remove the outermost layer of your skin, producing a smoother texture and sometimes helping even out pigmentation. They may also help fade fine lines or clean out pores. Masks can provide intensive moisture, absorb excess oil, or deliver antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, or acne-fighting treatments to the skin.
Acne-prone skin can benefit from peels that contain salicylic acid. Sensitive skin may do better with less irritating lactic acid peels or mild physical peels. Many products contain combinations of these active ingredients.
The biggest difference between masks and peels and products such as cleansers is the duration of application. Cleansers are quick-on/quick-off. Masks and peels are left on for a specific length of time, increasing the amount of active ingredients that penetrates the skin.
With peels, the degree to which the bonds between dead skin cells break apart and disappear is determined in part by how long you allow the acids to work. It’s best to use peels sparingly. The biggest mistake women make is applying peels daily. Daily application over stresses the skin. Peels can contribute to sun sensitivity too.
The FDA has standards for the percentages of active ingredients in peels and masks allowed in over-the-counter products. For example, glycolic acid and salicylic acid (often found in peels) are limited to 10% and 2%, respectively. Be wary of masks or peels with higher percentages. These should not be dispensed without a doctor’s supervision. “
Now that you have more knowledge about face peeling let’s talk about my new favorite peel from Reviva Labs.
Here is some important information provided directly from Reviva Labs ……….
“Peeling” is a European term for one of the most unique European items in the entire cosmetic field. THIS IS NOT A HARSH CHEMICAL PEEL. It doesn’t “peel skin” as we know it, but gently lifts off more hardened, dried skin cells than can be achieved by scrubs or any other “exfoliating” product. Dead-cell accumulation prevents treatment products from penetrating and keeps skin tone from looking fresh and vibrant. For aging and problem skin, PEEL is absolutely vital; it offers multiple benefits, which one can see and feel with just one application. Used by Europe’s top Skin Treatment Specialists as a supplementary cleansing step in any skin care program.
Once or twice a week, apply a light coat of SKIN PEEL all over cleansed face and throat. Let dry 3-5 minutes. When fully dry, rub off with fingers, dry towel or cosmetic sponge. If you want a “mini-facial” at home, follow with a mask.
Purified Water, SDA Alcohol 40, Crushed Almonds, Vegetable Oil, Zinc Oxide, Kaolin, Starch, Glycerin, Chamomile, Methylcellulose, Salyicylic Acid, Allantoin, Papain, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid, Oil of Thyme.
The only product of its kind. The next best treatment to a professional salon facial. No harsh chemicals, no skin irritations. Improves skin appearance faster than any other product. Super effective for Ethnic skin type, removes traces of “ashiness” quickly. Any skin type, any age, can benefit from a weekly “Peel.” Exfoliation is now recommended by dermatologists as part of their acne-treatment program; as well as for aging skin. Reviva Labs introduced the concept of “exfoliation” to Health Food Stores over 26 years ago. At that time, no major brand or Dermatologist talked about exfoliation. Exfoliation? As we get older, the cell renewal process of the skin slows down and dead cells accumulate on the skin’s surface, dulling skin as well as blocking pores. When Light Peel removes the dead cells, it reveals the fresher cells beneath. Our Peel ingredients also stimulate the deeper new cells to move upward at a faster rate – causing the skin surface to look tighter, clearer and healthier.

Lets talk about texture, and packaging…..
It’s thick, but not too thick… It has in it; grains to help exfoliate the skin for a deep clean and softness.
I love this packaging (box) , When I look at it , it speaks to me …hahaha …really it does…
Something like : ” natural, refreshing, want to feel me ? put me on…” 🙂
I love it, so pretty and so appropriate for the type of product.
The container inside is also very nice and very appropriate for the mask, the only thing I would suggest would be to add something that can be used to gently apply the product into the skin….:)
Here are some swatches for you !

My Thoughts on the Peel
I think it is pretty evident so far, that I am in love with the skin peel, the packaging, what it does, and what this company stands for…
Everything about this product from texture to packaging is super appropriate, easy to use, natural, and relaxing.
I encourage all my readers to try the peel, it is not expensive at all, very affordable… Get one, use it while taking a warm and relaxing bubble bath , or after showering ….lay down for a while with some soft music and let the peel work on your face.. you will find it relaxing and rejuvenating …for real 🙂
The only suggestions I have for Reviva Labs on this product is to include, an item that can be used to gently apply the product evenly on the skin; other than that …I think it is fabulous 🙂
