Put a small mixing dish and a fan brush in front of this Beauty Bug any day and She’s ready to do some face painting. Tonight Her paint of choice was Boots’ No 7 Advanced Renewal Anti-Ageing Glycolic Peel Kit - She was attempting to cleanse and peel away a long, stressful work day filled with corporate shenanigans . She applied the peel as directed – 4 pumps of product swept across Her face using the fan brush left on for no more than 5 minutes. Immediately following that The Beauty Bug used the Neutralizing Pads (a soothing blend of Icelandic moss, licorice extract and pro-vitamin B5) and then rinsed with cool water. The peel, which contains 7% glycolic acid, is mild yet effective, and suitable for any skin type. The Beauty Bug only experienced mild tingling, and will definitely leave the peel on a few more minutes next time.
The intense instructions read like one is about to perform self-surgery, advising to “place the leaflet where you can see it while carrying out the treatment”, “make sure to tie your hair back” and “over the next week your skin will need extra care.” Call Her a risk-taker, but The Beauty Bug was confident enough in Her peeling skills to apply the peel in the bathroom while leaving the instructions in another room. She may of even applied 4.5 pumps of the peel – She lives on the edge.
The results were impressive. The Beauty Bug’s skin felt renewed and was visibly smoother and softer to the touch. It was more even-toned, and felt fresher and new from the exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids. and Overall, the system was very easy to use and the benefits will only get better with continued use!
