WOW - having a baby sure does take up a lot of time!!!! Who knew??
So this week I received a new peel sample to try for my review called the Fusion Peel by the awesome and (very easy to deal with on the phone) company named Skin-Peel.com. (That is my disclosure - if you missed it!) HA
I have only had one peel since having my baby - and actually I have in the past 5 years have probably only had one type of peel - the tried and true Alpha Beta....so this peel better be great b/c I LOVE the alpha beta one!!
I have wicked hyperpigmentation from having a baby - I mean terrible!! I would love to get rid of!! I have been staying completely out of the sun for months, wearing my SPF religiously, and using tazorac and retin-a nightly for about 3 months.
The peel came well packaged and with very easy to follow instructions as well.
I immediately opened and read everything!
The peel itself is a straight liquid and had to be applied with a gauze pad that was included.
I swiped one layer over my whole face (after cleansing and towel drying). It was a bit stingy by my eye area and I did start to turn pretty red within about 1 minute.
Noticing that it said I could keep it on for 6-8 - I knew that being that I had been using so many retinoids for months I was very sensitive.
So about the 2 minute mark I went ahead and neautralized with the spray and then splashed cool water on my face for about a minute.
I was a bit red but nothing bad.
24 hours later - my skin is a bit pink but man is it clear!!! I mean super tight and shiny which I love!! It looks fresh and bright!! I actually look well rested - :) I really like the results - I have not really flaked at all (stay tuned to see if I will in a few days??)
So far I am hooked - this is a great peel - !!
Here is the peel that I was given if you are interested in checking it out yourself.
