M-61 Power Glow Peel Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I am a longtime fan of effective at-home peels, and I really love using the M-61 Power Glow Peel because it is easy to use, it only takes one minute and it delivers real results. Furthermore, this cruelty-free peel is gluten-free, and free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances,  phthalates and synthetic dyes.

You simply unfold the facial peel pad and wipe it over your cleansed and dry face, neck and décolleté. It is always a good practice to spot test to see whether you have a reaction, before using it on a large area of skin, but I will note that my skin can be sensitive and reactive, and this peel has posed no problem for me, whatsoever.

During use I notice the slightest bit of tingling as the Glycolic and Salicylic Acids begin their work exfoliating my dead skin cells, but it is neither uncomfortable, nor painful. I began using it once a week, and was able to use it three times a week the second week, and by the third week I was able to use them every day. I would definitely recommend starting out slowly. I also have to say that whenever you exfoliate your skin that it is imperative to be vigilant about sunscreen use, and reapplication, because taking away dead skin cells leaves your skin more vulnerable to the sun and environment. The lack of an SPF leaves your skin more vulnerable to skin cancer, but also to hyperpigmentation.

M-61 Power Glow Peel leaves my skin soft, smooth with a renewed fresh texture and clarity. I do not have enlarged pores, and therefore can't say whether enlarged pores appear smaller, but I do note that my skin appears more taut after use, and that fine lines appear softer because they are unencumbered by excessive dead skin cells.

This is formulated for all skin types, but as previously noted, it is always a good idea to spot test peels before applying them to your whole face, neck and décolleté.
According to M-61,

This 1-minute, 1-step exfoliating peel resurfaces, clarifies and helps to firm the skin for a radiant, renewed glow. Glycolic and salicylic acid help to improve the skin’s tone, texture and clarity, reduce pore size and fine lines, while chamomile and lavender calm and soothe skin in this power-packed, at-home treatment.

  1. I've used this brand but it's been a long time. I'm glad you reminded me of it. This sounds like a mask that I'd like.

    1. It is definitely a peel worth trying, and I do think that you would like it, Marcia!

  2. I love glycolic acid for my aging skin. These are so convenient to use too, I am definitely going to get a pack!

    1. It is such an effective acid! I agree with you about the convenience! I think that you will really like the results from this peel, Cindy!

  3. I love that it’s an impregnated sheet that you just open and apply. I have a new GA peel to try, but it comes in a dropper bottle. I have to figure out how to use it

    1. I agree, Allison– it really makes it so easy to use! I look forward to reading about the gel that you mentioned!
