My skin has not been co-operating with me lately and I’ve been in a mad dash to try and calm it down as quickly as possible this week. I still needed to exfoliate though so I reached for the most gentle exfoliator I had on hand, Mario Badescu’s Rolling Cream Peel with AHA.
It’s super easy to use and doesn’t require any water. You just take a small amount and apply it to your face in a thin layer, wait about a minute then you gently roll the product off of your face. I had to admit, I didn’t go with a thin layer of product… I’m the type of gal that likes to put glue on her fingers just to peel it off. It’s weird, I know but I enjoy it. Using this peel was just more of the same thing. It does not come off in one or a few pieces but it does roll off easily forming little balls. It can be a little messy though so you’ll want to have something catch the fall out. I actually kind of like seeing the fall out, it makes me feel like I did something worthwhile for my skin. 😉
The aftermath is just smoother skin without any harsh granules or abrasiveness. I haven’t experienced any reactions and so far, I’m pretty happy with this. I just follow it up with a toner and moisturizer. The crazy part is that I picked this product up months and months ago during a trip to Canada and just started using it a couple weeks ago. Sometimes gems get lost in my beauty stash but I’m glad I was able to find this!
