Here we go again with the insta-magic-awesome-cool skin peels.
Allow me to explain. You rub this gel on clean, dry skin, and it is supposed to magically cause all of these dead skin cells to pill up on your face. Magic? No. Gimmick. Most likely. I’m calling shenanigans on this one. I got this in a Play Box, and I’ve used crap like this before. Never have I ever purchased a product like this, and I never will. This one, at least, has the decency to not list cellulose as an ingredient. Newsflash: those cool looking beads you see forming on your face as you move the product around aren’t skin cells. They’re the actual product. In this case you are paying $55.00 for two ounces for this P.O.S. product. The more product you use, the more “skin cells” you see building up around your face.
Then you rinse it off, and, wow, behold the new skin underneath your ratty, old looking dead skin. Yeah, no. And your skin feels so soft and smooth. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say, at least in the case of this stuff, that’s the film the aloe vera or the Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer leaves on your skin, or some combination of the two. The polymer levels in the ingredients are high enough to ball up, thus, looking like your skin is magically peeling off. Now wash your face again, and tell me it doesn’t go right back to feeling like your same old skin. Sorry, sucker.
I. Just. Who in their right mind buys stuff like this? Ugh, beauty companies must think everyone is born a fool. Things like this, genuinely, make me angry. And at $55.00 for a bottle. Here’s what you should do. Go get 55 bucks from your ATM, toss it in a toilet, and flush. Does that make you feel angry. Good. Now look at the packaging on this and project that anger and don’t freaking buy it.
Skin Inc. Pure Revival Peel: I don’t need this, and I sure as hell am not going to buy it.
