Skincare Sunday - THEFACESHOP Mild Papaya Peeling Review

Time for another Skincare Sunday post - this week I am focusing on a peel from The Face Shop! I actually just tried a sample of this last month and really enjoyed it, and I happened to get a bigger sample from a friend for Christmas!

THEFACESHOP Mild Papaya Peeling Review

The Face Shop Mild Papaya Peeling ~ full size 150ml for $17.00. Get clear, flawless looking skin with this papaya scrub. Gentle on the skin, it efficiently removes impurities and dead skin cells that clog pores.
I use peels about once a month (I interchange my peels with a deep exfoliant every 2 weeks - for a more detailed step by step basis, you can see my Nighttime Skincare Routine here, although I will be updating it soon as it is a little old now!) Generally, the Korean routine does not recommend a deep peel and scrub more often than once per week, and longer is suggested which is why I do once every 2 weeks. 

To use: Wash and Dry skin. Apply a thin layer of product to face and once face is covered, massage in to skin for about 30 seconds, you will being to see the peel work.

Here is a look (first photo is product just applied, second photo is after 30 seconds of massaging in to skin):

This peel is very gentle on the skin - making it very usable. Some peels can cause redness and irritation - this one had nothing like that. It made my skin instantly smooth and it felt great! I would recommend this if you are looking for the benefits of a peel, are looking for an inexpensive and effective product, and if you are new to peels - this is great! I will continue to use it on a monthly basis.
