Review: During my most recent trip to Sephora, I bought the Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel on a whim. Even though it’s pricey ($60.00), I have trouble finding exfoliators gentle enough for my fair and sensitive skin and I liked that this is an all-natural enzyme exfoliator/peel, so I was able to justify the purchase. I should also mention that I was very intrigued by the powder formula that foams up into a cleanser, naturally I was eager to test it out.
First you poor the powder mix into the palm of your hand, and there’s a convenient built-in measuring device so that the powder stops coming out when you have enough in your hand for a single cleanse. If you continue to tip the bottle over, the powder will continue to come out, but I learned this the very first time using it so I can confidently say that it’s quite user-friendly.
Then you put a small amount of water into the palm of your other hand, rub hands together and begin to massage on face.
It has a light and fresh scent that I simply adore, and the powder turns immediately into a soft lathering foam that just melts smoothly onto your face without any grainy scrub feel what-so-ever. (In the photo below I am using the product on my neck because it was too difficult to wash my face and close my eyes, while trying to take pictures)
After massaging your face for about 30-60 seconds (which will seem too short since this product feels sooooooo good!) you simply wash off with clean water and enjoy the spectacular results!
FINAL THOUGHT: Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel is probably the most unique skin product I’ve ever used. Even though it gently exfoliates/peels your skin with enzymes, it feels nothing like any other peel I’ve tried before; It feels like silk is being smothered all over my face! But how something ‘feels’ is not necessarily the most important aspect to a product, the real question is – does it work? Well, I’ve been using it for two weeks now and my skin is absolutely much smoother after each use, and I know for a fact that it deep cleanses my skin since I’ve had a noticeable decline in random breakouts – the short answer…IT WORKS!!!!!!
