The winter season brings in not only the frosty weather but also dull, dry and dehydrated skin. With evenings often spent rugged up in the warm indoors, skin can easily lose moisture, leading to dryness and noticeably uneven skin tone. At-Home facial peels are a great way to take care of your skin without having to visit a spa. In the past I have used a few facial peel products from some Indian drugstore brands and from Oriflame. But, I never found them to be suepr good on my skin. Plus some of them were very difficult to even peel of after it dries leaving my skin irritated or red.
Facial peels remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells of your face, leaving a smoother, radiant looking face. A good facial peel help minimize the pores and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Similarly a bad facial peel product can irritate the skin as well.
In this review I am going to share my favorite facial peel product. This is from a brand called Manuka Doctor. Manuka Doctor is a well known skincare brand that uses some of the finest, unique ingredients for its products; hero ingredeints being “Manuka Honey” and “Purified Bee Venom“.
This product here, really attracted me as it has acne healing properties. When Manuka Doctor PR sent me this facial peel. I was excited to try this as I heard a lot of good things about purified bee venom products for the treatment of acne. Purified Bee Venom has multiple anti ageing properties such as cell regeneration, renewal of damaged skin cells, scar reduction, reduction of fine lines & wrinkles etc. It also has known benefits of treating and healing acne. though its not advised to be used on broken skin.
Designed to renew the complexion, reduce fine lines and dramatically improve skin tone, firmness and radiance. Combining signature ingredients Purified Bee Venom & Manuka honey with fruit extracts & botanicals, skin is left glowing and in optimum health. Recommended for congested skin, this skin clearing mask works well on blemishes, blackheads & sun damaged skin as it lifts dead skin cells, stimulates cell renewal & purifies pores promoting a radiant and glowing complexion, leaving skin plumped & silky soft.
Comes in a white squeezy tube of 100 ml with a twist cap.
The powerful combination of anti-bacterial Manuka Oil and the innovative core ingredient of Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) form a potent combination of enzymes, peptides and amino acids that is effective on all levels of the skin and perfect to have the skin looking it best prior to summer.
Directions to use
My experience using ApiClear Purifying Facial Peel
Consistency: Consistency of this facial peel is creamy or rather sticky like a glue
How I use it: After cleansing my face, on my dry facial area- I apply Manuka Doctor ApiClear Purifying Facial Peel in a thin and even layer leaving plenty of space around the mouth, eyes and eyebrows and leave for about 10-15 minutes. It’s feels quite sticky while applying, almost like a glue. The stickiness of it holds the mask and helps peel it off after it dries. Once the mask is on the face, It feels really cooling. It feels liek a white coating on the face.
Once the mask is completely dry, you can start to peel off the mask, starting at the bottom of the face ( the chin area) pulling upwards. It doesn’t hurt while pulling if you do it quickly and when its completely dry. If any flecks of mask residue is left on the skin – I use a warm wet cloth to wipe it off. This leave my face really really clean. Skin feels soft and plumped up.
After peeling off: I apply rosehip oil or a face serum. I use this peel twice a week. It really clean the dirt off the pores and you can start seeing the difference from the very first use itself. This facial peel never irritated my skin. I didn’t notice any major skin tightening effect. However, it really did help in clearing my acne marks. along with my other clay masks and hydrating masks, I never fail to use this once or twice a week depending on my mood.
