Hey folks, sorry for the lack of action around here lately. EVERYONE has been sick at my house with some cold or another plus we ALL got PINKEYE! UGH! I am the last one to have it and it really can’t go away fast enough.
Anyways, last weekend was the perfect weekend to hibernate and rejuvenate. I took some time on Sunday night to do a face mask and
hide hang out in the bathtub.
The face mask was actually a peel that I had received in my last Sephora order. It was a promo for when you made a $25 purchase, you received three fullPOWER Peel™ PRO-strength Microdermabrasion/AHA Peel systems for free! Well, you know how much I love free stuff. Obviously, I was in!
A popular treatment at Ole Henriksen’s skin clinic, this microdermabrasion and acid peel system dramatically retexturizes to visibly reduce fine lines, smooth skin texture, even skintone, diminish discoloration, and minimizes pores for instant renewed youthful radiance in three simple steps.
The face mask/peel comes in a slim envelope with pouches clearly marked with 1, 2 and 3, outlining the multiple steps.
The first step is an almond polish. It’s fairly gritty and you rub it all over your face for 2-3 minutes.
Here you can see the large almond seeds in the cleanser.
And here is the scrub on my face.
Rinse that off and on to Step 2:
The lemon strip step definitely tingled, especially where I had rubbed the almond scrub around my nose.
This was more of a clear gel-like substance. It smelled citrus-y but not overpowering.
This is with the lemon peel on. You can see my face is kind of red from the almond scrub. This step is left alone for 2 minutes and then you add Step 3.
Step 3: the chamomile mask is applied directly on top of Step 2: lemon peel.
This looks exactly the way you think the last step of a mask would look: like heavy lotion.
I slathered every last particle of this step on to my face. It’s still burning a bit at this point… but it stopped about 5 minutes later and was very relaxing after that. That’s when I climbed in the bath.
The last step is supposed to linger for about 15 minutes and then you can rinse your face.
I forgot to take after pictures but I remember my skin feeling somewhat tight, so I did layer on some Julep What Your Skin Needs before bed to help with moisture, which is extra important during the drying winter. Overall, I enjoyed this product. I have two more mask/treatments left and I will probably let my mom try one and see what she thinks.
Have you tried this product? What’s your favourite face mask/peel? Happy Shopping!
