Product Review: Instant Peel Exfoliant from Earthen Skin Care
Hey guys! Hope you had a good Christmas!
I just wanted to pop back in on you guys with another quick product review!
This exfoliant claims to have “natural ingredients for use on the face and body.”
Check out the ingredients:
I’ve never used shrimp extract (that I know of) on my face, but okay….
When I first got the product, I had it in my head that it would be like one of those paper masks for some reason, but it’s an actual liquid that you apply to your face. This may be a bit messy, but whatevs.
The instructions tell you to first steam your skin for 5 minutes before applying, which I found interesting. After that you squeeze a small amount of the substance into your finger and apply, massaging it into your skin and the peeling should immediately start happening. Then rinse as needed.
The steaming was easy enough. I just got a bowl of hot water, a towel, and knocked that out really quick!
The next step was where things got a bit tricky for me, ha.
So…I assumed that the liquid was going to be kind of thick like toothpaste, but it was actually the exact opposite. It was really loose and things got a bit messy
You can tell by the look of my fingers that things were messy!
Then, came the application. I was an interesting experience…
I know you’re laughing, but let me explain! I had already done my left cheek at this point and some of the stuff was rubbing off, but for some reason my forehead just didn’t wanna cooperate! I kept rubbing but it just wouldn’t peel or do anything. So that was my “What the heck” face, LOL.
But I didn’t give up! After using the whole packet on my entire face, this is what I looked like:
Another crazy picture, I know! But we’re not finished yet!
And, hopefully this won’t gross you out, but here was the dead skin from the sink:
I finally took the water from the bowl that I used to steam my face and some of my Ivory body wash to clean all the gunk off my face. I just knew that this whole experience had been a waste of time…
But what do you know! My face turned out really well! I was pleasantly surprised! My skin was SO SOFT! I went ahead and applied some lotion to my face and I was IN LOVE! My skin felt (and still feels) so clean, clear, and bright, I couldn’t believe it!
So to recap, I love this product! Granted, I had a rocky start, lost faith for about 15 minutes, and got exfoliate all over my hands, but it wound up making my skin feel lovely!
Outside of the mess and questionable start, the product did exactly what it said it would do and even wound up exceeding my expectations in the end. 5 stars!
