Most Helpful Positive Review restores my face
I'm 60 years old and I bought this several months ago. I gave it a couple of tries and then put it away because I really just did not understand this product at all. lately I've been trying to follow what the experts say about how to care for my skin and my skin just kept getting flaky, gunky, and bumpy. well today I found this under my sink and put it on my face again and all of the problems that I've been having just disappeared with one use. I am not kidding. My skin was smooth, clear, and practically textureless. I think the product is the perfect mild exfoliant for me. I will be putting this back in rotation.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's A No From Me
I really wanted to love this peel, but I just can't. Part of that is my fault; I listened to reviews from Youtubers and beauty bloggers that have no idea about the product instead of doing my own research. Most reviews claimed you could see dead skin coming off in balls as you worked the peel into your skin. In reality, what reviewers were calling dead skin is actually just the product drying out and clumping, which is supposed to aid in the exfoliation process. I was expecting a stronger exfoliant, like some type of mild acid, but that is not what this product is. It is a very, very mild exfoliant at best. Pros, it has a great scent and does leave your skin feeling smooth. Cons, it doesn't work like I expected, and contains alcohol (which is probably why your skin feels smooth afterwards). So, if you are looking for a very small amount of exfoliation, this is for you. If you're hoping it's an actual peel, save your money, because it's not
Reviewed by 63 customers IT WILL NOT COME OFF MY FACE!
Amy from Jackson, Tennessee
I was excited to try this. I have pretty normal skin in good health for a 50 year old. My issue is that the "balls" of skin or goo or whatever... don't come off. I rinsed with cold, cool, warm, hot water. I used a toner on a cotton pad. I used exfoliating gloves (?!). I picked at them for hours. thankfully I used on a weekend and didn't have to go anywhere. eventually got them off about 30 hours later.
does my skin feel nice underneath? sure. but what even is the trick to taking it off?
Bree from Florida
I love this product! I plan to purchase again
Reagan from Tuscaloosa
I just got this product but it is so fun to use and you can quickly feel a difference. It makes my skin feel refreshed and it's not something you have to keep on your face for a few minutes, you just rub for 20 seconds and rinse! Really excited to have this product for mornings when I don't have much time!
Jess from NV - Nevada
This is the best exfoliation my face and neck has ever got.
This makes your skin really smooth
Ashu from Austin
Use a little product on your cheeks , chin and forehead and massage it into the skin and see that the deadskin/impurities being peeled off. I have extremely oily skin, this product made my skin so fresh
allie from smyrna tennessee
To make sure this "exfoliator" was actually rubbing away dead skin, I tried the peel with gloves on. The peel also had little clumps of "skin" when using gloves. The product produces this to make you think it's getting rid of dead skin:(
My skin has never been clearer!!!
DangerNoodle from TX
Love love love this product. My face feels so clean and I will never use anything else on my face.
The BEST exfoliant I EVER used
Meg the Designer from Chicago
This is by far the best exfoliant I ever used. I struggled for years with constant, overwhelming fry skin that made even high end foundations a cakey mess. After one use BAM, I felt like I had new skin! Unlike most exfoliants I tried, my face doesn't feel irritated, but rather super smooth and soft.
The brand is extremely anti-slavery, trying to be the most ethical and sustainable brand in the world. It's a great brand to support.
I recommend this to all my friends.
Not the best peel available/over priced
GimmeProductsThatWorkAsAdvertised from Manhattan NYC
This peel was ok. If I hadn't tried other brands/different peels I would think this was good. Unfortunately the price point and the effectiveness of the product are extreme opposites and I would never purchase again. I got it on sale, used it once and then let my mom, sister, and dad try it and they weren't impressed. They not only didn't see a difference or result of the peel like myself, but asked why I decided to try this peel when my cheaper more effective peel was good enough to borrow. If you're interested in clean ingredients do your research and also keep your receipt. At least Ulta lets you return even if you tried the product (within reason), so if you're still wanting to try there's no loss other than time and maybe a breakout or for me (combination skin) a mix of flakiness and excess oil production even for my usual skin type.
great peel mask
cyl from MI
At last I have a product I can count on to remove the peeling skin on my nose. Yay!
J from Boston
I have never used such a strange product. You rub this gel on your skin, and as you do, it globs onto all the tiny hairs on your face and will NOT come off. I scrubbed, used water, cleanser, a washcloth - nothing removed the little balls of product from the hairs on my face. I ultimately ended up picking them off one by one, which was incredibly painful and super irritating to my skin. I use lots of Body Shop products and always love them, but this one was an absolute dud. Not to mention the name/description of it is very misleading; it's not a "peel" at all, it's just a scrub.
I love it
Marissa from Delaware
I use it 2-3x a week and my skin always looks fresh afterwards. good price point and results vs other more expensive peels I've used in the past.
I Will Buy Again!
Cissy from Peoria, illinois
Had it demonstrated on back of hand in store. Takes all of the dead skin off feet & they are smooth & soft! Pedicures are a no no for this diabetic but it really does the trick!
veronica from lakewood, ca
this product is something i didn't know i needed. i did the peel three times at once because of how much dead skin i had. it was so satisfying. i will definitely repurchase again!
Can't live without this
TiffanyStarr from Fort Wayne IN
This product is just simply amazing! It really does pull all of the dead skin out of your pores and forms little balls you wash away. I can definitely feel a huge difference in the texture of my skin after using this. It feels like it took off the whole top layer of my skin, but it's so gentle! Because of the massive amount of stuff forming into little balls I thought it wasn't real and maybe it was just the product itself. If you use it twice in a row, no little balls will form, so it's definitely pulling all that stuff out of your pores, it's not trickery! I've used Boscia and a couple other brands but this is my favorite!
Decent Peter Thomas Roth Dupe
Stephanie from Florida
I was looking for a dupe for the Peter Thomas Roth peeling gel (which is amazeballs. When you use it, it's like little cherubs come down and kiss the dry skin right off your face). I was browsing around and decided to give this stuff a try. My verdict: not half bad. It did a decent job of getting the flaking off my nose, and left my skin pretty darn soft and supple. I took a star off because if you work it for too long it gets extremely sticky and hard to remove. Also, it doesn't exfoliate as well as my holy grail from PTR. But for almost half the price, it's a pretty good buy 🤷♀️
THIS DESTROYS YOUR SKIN BARRIER
Mal from Georgia
This is basically just alcohol and it does not actually peel anything off of your face. I liked it at first and then I had a reaction all over my face from it. Sensitive skin people beware because this stuff just strips your face completely !
excellent for dry skin caused by acne treatment
v from hartford, ct
I have acne prone skin, enlarged pores, am generally very oily if not actively using a topical prescription grade acne product.
I've been dealing with dry patches since using Ac zone 5% and this is the only thing that removes the flakey skin. I use it about once or twice a week, depending on how bad my dry skin is and follow up with a moisturizer. 10/10 recommend if you're looking for a gentle exfoliant.
Wow! It works!
Pickle from Ohio
I'm a skin care junkie and an Ulta junkie and this is the first review I have ever done because I'm so impressed with this. A friend gave this to my son and he had me try it. The little balls of dead skin surprised me. Always the skeptic, thinking that maybe it wasn't really dead skin I used it on the back of my hand, got little skin balls, rinsed it off, and then used it again. No skin balls. So it really was dead skin and not the product itself balling up. I was so impressed I bought 2 bottles and gave one to my daughter. She's impressed too.
Would recommend to anyone.
Sierra Dani from Idaho
Everyone has different skin - Never listen to reviews because products will work differently for YOU.
Anyways - For me, this is a life saver. My face gets very flaky, and dry in the Winter. This takes my dead skin off in a few uses. Do not use every day. Too much is never good. I prefer using this every 3-4 days. Use this product before you get into the shower too.
Ashley from Indianapolis
I've been using this product a few times a week for about 3 years I think. Its a gel that when spread on dry skin causes your dead skin cells to ball up and fall off. I like to use this right before I get in the shower so I can wash all the dead skin off my face. I feel like it is very gentle, but I don't have very sensitive skin. It is especially great when my skin is dry and flaky. After I use this, all the flaky patches are gone and my skin feels very smooth.
Had This A While
Angelini from Lubbock, TX
For the negative reviews that say that it's not really dead skin clumping up, I beg to differ. So, i thought that maybe they were correct so I decided to try it on my very very dry cracked heels and knees. Lord behold, I had no more cracked heels or ashy knees after that! So, then I thought, "well what if it's a trick anyway and it was just super moisturizing?" Days later, still no cracked skin or built up ashy knees. I can see how acne prone skin won't like this all too much but for people who have used facial peels in the past, you'll be fine. Y'all should always spot test before putting it all over your face!!!! Maybe just do half your forehead or something.
Mj12 from Florida
At first I loved this product because it made my face so smooth but after just two uses a few days apart I experienced cystic acne almost like an allergic reaction on my face and my acne got really bad. Do not recommend for acne prone skin!!
Makes face radiant and clean

It's not too fragrant which is great and removes most impurities around nose and eye area for a fresh, radiant look
Abbe from Granger
