After using mechanical types of face peelings for years, I finally gave an enzyme peel a chance. I've read some good reviews of 100% Pure Pineapple Enzyme Peel and since it's one of the few enzyme peels available here in Slovenia, I decided to get it.
Ingredients: Kaolin (Kaolin Clay), Bromelain (Pineapple Enzyme), Papain (Papaya Enzyme), Ananas Sativus (Pineapple) Fruit Extract, Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Extract.
Direction: Mix 1 table spoon of water or lemon juice with 2 table spoons of powder and mix to form a paste. Apply mask onto skin (avoiding immediate eye area) and leave on for 5 minutes. Rinse off.
I followed the directions and mixed one little spoon of the powder with some water (making sure the paste wasn't too watery). I'm not sure where I read it and why, but you shouldn't use metal spoons with this powder, so I used a little plastic one. It made a paste which I applied all over my face concentrating on my nose, chin and forehead area. After 5 minutes the mask dried on my face, but I left it on for 10 minutes and then rinsed it off with lukewarm water. My skin was soft, smooth and just like it is after using a mechanical peel. I was impressed and surprised how well it works without any rubbing of the product on the skin. I like it a lot. I'm still gonna use up my mechanical peels - Balea Creme Peeling and AOK Seesand Peeling, but I also think I'm never gonna be without the enzyme peel from now on. A lot of people mention the smell of this powder. Well, it reminds me of those water-soluble vitamin tablets. It's not the most pleasant scent, but it doesn't really bother me that much.
I purchased 100% Pure Pineapple Enzyme Peel on Ekobutik (slovenian online store that ships internationally) for €17.00.
What kind of peels do you use (mechanical, enzyme, chemical...)?
Thanks for looking and commenting!
