Review: Reviva Labs Light Skin Peel

What is it?
""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. Any skin type, any age, can benefit from a once-a-week "Peel". 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." - via website

Retail Price: $20 for 1.5 oz

Where to buy:, GNC, Vitamin Shoppes, Whole Foods, Ulta.

My thoughts and experience:
I know, the name is a little confusing. I thought it was an at-home chemical peel too. This was a very interesting product; it's a mix between an exfoliator and a peel mask.  It feels like an exfoliator when you use it, but you it's really a mask that you peel! The mixture is in a plastic container sealed with a screw top.

[applied on clean face]

Simply apply a thin layer of this stuff with clean fingers. The mixture has grainy texture and looks like it is mixed with some crushed up dried leaves. It applies easily and is non sticky. It has a very strong medicinal scent, which reminds me of Chinese herbal stuff. The first time I used it, the scent was extremely overwhelming. After the first time, I got used to it and did not mind so much.

During this time, I could feel my face getting tighter. After about 15-20 minutes, it's hard to move my face because of the tightness. By then, you know it's time to peel! It feels like picking pieces of handmade paper off your face, that's the fun part.

 [dried and ready to peel, my face was so tight, I couldn't even smile for the picture]

I can see noticeably smaller pores, and my face feels soft and moisturized. I really look forward to using this product once a week!
