Press SampleI am a huge fan of enzyme peels, and am forever on the lookout for new and improved versions of this type of product. I love that such products, when good, are great at clearing pores, fading hyperpigmentation, removing dead skin and debris, and restoring a nice glowing complexion.
O.R.G. Skincare, a cruelty-free company, has created an enzyme peel that is the envy of all such products. You simply spray the liquid-based product on the area(s) of the face that you wish to treat (avoiding the eyes) and then you gently rub your fingers in a circular motion for approximately one minute (or less). This is when the magic happens- because the dead skin and debris simply begins to ball up and fall away. Once this occurs wash all of the remaining product off of your skin, and then say hello to gorgeous baby-bottom soft skin!
According to O.R.G. Skincare, "You've selected Organic Mineral Peel Face (59ml), our non-abrasive facial exfoliator that gently removes dead skin cells & deep-rooted makeup within minutes of application. Our organic formulation eliminates dull skin & dry patches while promoting radiant looking skin. Organic Mineral Peel Face includes natural skin brightening agents which include Milk Thistle and Licorice as well as enriched nutrients and antioxidants which include Omega 3, Vitamin A, & Vitamin B1."

I would definitely urge you to use caution with all exfoliants and peels, and avoid using too many too often. Retinol based products, Lactic Acids, AHA based products, and other products that encourage skin turn over (including physical exfoliants) should be avoided while using this peel. Too much peeling and exfoliating will over-work the skin and can cause irritation, and lead to thinning. On the evenings that I use this I skip my retinol altogether, and the following morning I avoid all exfoliants and I load up on moisture and sunscreen. I emphatically suggest using a high SPF daily sunscreen whenever forcing skin turnover at a faster rate than it would naturally do on its own. Exfoliating exposes new skin, and new skin needs even greater protection from the sun and elements.
Overall assessment: This is an innovative peel that is unbelievably effective. It is filled with healthy ingredients, and that is something that you can feel really good about. I am so happy with this product that I am now anxious to try even more of their products. I give this my highest marks!
