Beauty ~ PeterThomasRoth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads & the LipstoDieFor in Pink Bomshell Review and Thoughts

PeterThomasRoth
I will begin by saying that this is my first foray into skin peels so I thought I would begin with the  PeterThomasRoth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads because I had previously received a sample from Sephora and really liked them. It's kind of hard to judge how your skin would react and feel to just one sample peel and to be honest, I didn't have any reaction from that one peel and that's why I decided to purchase the full size jar.  I didn't want to experience a strong reaction from any at home peels and since this was my very first one, I was quite happy with my selection.

The jar is a pretty nice size and the peel pads are very moist and wet. The top of the jar has a foil like pad that I believe keeps the moisture in so that the peels won't dry out.  There is a pleasant smell to the pads and not really strong at all. It doesn't smell like alcohol or like you're applying any harsh chemicals to your face, you don't really smell anything other than the natural aromas from the chamomile and green tea extracts.

I begin using the peels right away and I've been using them for almost two weeks now. What I like about these peels is that the reaction from them is very mild. I haven't experienced any redness or drastic peeling nor have I had any blotchy patches on my skin.  I have only seen very subtle signs of peeling and only in certain areas on my face such as my jaw line and my forehead, I haven't seen any peeling on my cheeks, nose or around my mouth.  I decided that I would began using a mild scrub after I cleanse my face each night to help the peeling shed a bit.

I actually apply my peels in the morning right after I use my NuFace toning device.  Because the peels only require warm water to rinse, I believe they're pretty safe to use in the mornings. The directions says to wipe the entire face and neck avoiding the eye areas. Let the solution set for 2 - 3 minutes, then rinse with warm water.  I immediately follow with my morning moisturizing routine and my skin feels so smooth and soft.   If i'm wearing foundation that day, then I will apply that afterwards. If you are looking for something mild and gentle that you could use everyday you really can't go wrong with these peels. I don't use them every single day, but I do use them about 4 to 5 times a week.

Awww... the LipstoDieFor in the Pink Bombshell Lip Balm is the most exquisite soft long lasting lip balm that I have in my ever growing lip balm collection. This lip balm comes in two flavors and I purchased this at the same time I purchased the peel. I purchased both items from the Skinstore online and received a 20% discount that the Skinstore is always promoting. I was sold from all the ingredients that this little small jar contained and my lips are craving more moisture now that it is winter.

The lip balm might look a little waxy in the jar but it applies very smooth and thick.  It's the perfect lip balm to use underneath those really drying liquid lipsticks that are flooding the market and it's nice to carry in your bag for touch-ups during the day if you're not wearing any lip products.  The only think that I don't like about this tiny jar is that I have to use the back of my nail to pick up the product, if you have any kind of length on your nails, you won't be able to fit the tip of your finger into the jar. This is also a good lip balm to use at night while you're sleeping because the wear time is 4 to 5 hours on moisture on the lips.
