skinactives TCA Spot Peel Kit Review

I used to thoroughly enjoy getting facials. More than any other spa treatment, my love of facials bordered on addiction.  Not only were they relaxing, but I loved knowing that my skin had been deep cleaned. This was until the last facial that I got, which left me with a pea sized scab on my face which later turned into a prominent scar thanks to some very aggressive extraction.

For someone who does not like to wear any kind of cover-up from foundation, powder to concealer, having a very visible scar on my face was more than mildly irritating.  I was contemplating getting a series of microdermabrasion or peels to see if they would help to fade the scar, but was not too excited about the cost of either service.  Thankfully I was given the opportunity to try the TCA Spot Peel Kit from skinactives.  I say thankfully because the kit is only $60 and it was something I was able to do myself.  Read more

Review: Reviva Labs Light Skin Peel

Reviva Labs is one of my favorite skin care brands.  They have yet to disappoint me and I’m picky!  I’ve tried several products from the line and they use high quality anti-aging ingredients blended into the correct percentages to produce results. You won’t find heavy fragrances or fancy packaging with Reviva Labs; just effective, affordable skincare backed by 37 years of experience. I am truly devoted to this line and can honestly say that I have liked everything I’ve tried.

Today, I’d like to introduce you Reviva Labs Light Skin Peel. It is a natural, gentle exfoliating peel– there are no chemicals in it. It lifts off dried skin cells to reveal brighter, fresher skin. The consistency of this is strange; it reminds me of gloppy oatmeal or that really old fashioned wallpaper paste. It is very thick and doesn’t smell that great but the odor dissipates quickly.  Read more
