Most Helpful Positive Review Makeup life changer
So, I have a friend that uses this stuff and recommended it. However, the price was a little high for me. I was in Ulta standing in front of the Peeling Gel Trying to decide if I wanted to spend my hard earned money on this and an employee walked by and took one look at me and said that it wasn't for me because I had oily/combo skin and that it was just the product that peeled up and that I wouldn't like it. It seemed to me that she was more knowledgable than I was and I didn't want to spend money on something that the employee said wouldn't work. But still I felt slightly upset that she had dismissed me so quickly and I had read many good reviews. Fast forward about three months, I realize that I have many points and they would cover the hefty price. A separate employee let me try it out in the store and I felt enough difference on my hand that I thought it was worth it to use my points. What was the harm? I got home and rubbed it on my face. I was a little sad at first I didn't really notice a difference I thought that it had no real change to my face and the original employee had been correct in her assessment. I put the stuff in my cabinet and didn't think about it for maybe a month. Then one day my face was DRY. I mean just peeling rough patches everywhere. So I pulled it out and rubbed it on my face. After I washed it off literally ALL of my extra dry skin was gone. My face had never been so smooth and soft in my life. I then applied makeup and it went on like a dream. It was the best makeup day I had had in ten years. The more I use the product the more I realize that it has to be used in a specific way to achieve optimum results. First wash and dry your face fully. I mean wash it twice with soap. It has to be clean. If there is any of your face's natural oils, it won't do anything but ball up the oil. Then make sure you leave it on for a few minutes before you wash it off. If your face is not as soft as a new born baby's butt do it again. This is the best!
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't be duped.
This product is nothing more than cellulose which is wood fiber. Yes, you put it on and it "rolls off the dead skin". Soooo, if you do that to your skin a few more times, then your skin shouldn't have more dead skin to roll off right? Wrong. It's just a texture thing...it "rolls" cause it's just fibers and it has silicone to make your skin "feel'' smoother. It's a joke. Buy a real mask.

I just used this, so this is based on a one time experience. I loved it all my dead skin just rolls off. It's a beautiful thing. I'm most definitely going to buy a full bottle.
gets dead skin
andie from Oregon
for all the whiners who say it just pills off, YOURE WRONG!!! It chemically gets all the dead skin cells off your flippin face, that's all it does it get dead skin off your face that are still there after scrubbing and/or washing your face, thus skincare products such as toner moisturizer etc can better absorb into the skin. I'm sick of uneducated people bashing stuff they know nothing about
Lisa from Wyoming
I wanted to love this but after many attempts, I finally threw it away. It literally did nothing for my skin. I use reviews to make purchases so when I saw so many great reviews for this product, I thought I couldn't go wrong but I was wrong! I've since used Philosophy's peel and wow - it has made a lovely change in the texture of my skin. Buyer beware with PTR Peeling Gel.
Jennifer from Memphis
This works very well to exfoliate. No worries on skin abrasions. Rub on then watch the skin rub off. Will continue to repurchase.
Works well with normal skin
Janelle from Madison, WI
I noticeably felt a difference in my skins texture instantly after using. I don't have super dry or oily skin. My main skin concern is mild blemishes and a couple dark spots. I like to follow a skin routine that incorporates exfoliation and hate abrasive ones. It is super satisfying to feel the combination of the product and my dead skin pilling together as I rubbed over my face. Follow up with a toner, hyaluronic acid, retinol based serum and moisturizer at night and my skin feels absolutely amazing!
I have sensitive skin and I must say this works great for me
Kae from New York
Exfoliate my skin perfectly. I use to Derma E facial wash first. After I use this exfoliate, u use Derma E serum and moisturizer. Keeps my face cool and nice through out the summer and winter. I also use a little of trader Joe's sunscreen if am going outside to protect my face from sunburn.
Dawny from Atown
It works well. I'm not sure why some reviewers say it's just the product pilling and not skin. That's absolutely not true for me. I used it after I had some peeling leftover from a sun burn in my face after it healed. It took the dead skin right off to reveal smooth skin. Perhaps the negative reviewer's skin isn't dry and flaky??
Bri from Stanwood wa
I never write reviews, but I have horrible dry skin and I started using this before I shower to get all the dead skin off my whole body. 🤡 it's amazing. I just thought I'd never have smooth skin again. So worth its. You only need a tiny amount one bottle lasted me two years. Now I'm buying my second.
Wow! It works!
D. Smith from Washington State
I live in the desert and have thyroid issues both of which have contributed to dry skin. I gave this a whirl and am happy to report it works!! I even put it across my lips and it takes the dead skin off of them as well!! I use this a couple times a week. It's my new favorite skin product. I wish it was cheaper but, honestly if it works, it works and worth the money.
My favorite skincare item!!
Lauren from Michigan
This is my favorite part of my weekly facial! It's so fun to apply to the face and massage and see the dead skin gather and fall off haha. At least for me, my face doesn't get red after using either (like some exfoliators I've used before). I'll even apply to the back of my hands to make them extra smooth. Makes my face feel soft and smooth!
This is the stuff
Manda from TN
Hands down the best chemical exfoliator on the market. PTR does a lot of things right and this is one of them. I purchase this anytime it's on sale
Love this stuff
Zee zee from Florida
This is an amazing product! I got a sample of it at Ulta and I loved it so much that I got the big bottle of it lol I'm not one that likes to spend a lot on face cleansers but nothing compares to this. It's awesome!
Great gel from Ballwin
This product is amazing. My skin felt so smooth and looked like I just had a facial. I will keep this on hand at all times now.
Love this product! Actually exfoliates your face.
Jilly from Mpls. mn
Thought it was the beads in the wash. If you use it two days in a row. You can tell that it is actually working because you won't have much peeling off. Use what you have left on your fingers and do your hands to get it off
Rachel from San Diego
I got a sample of this in a free gift from Ulta and WOW! I bought the full size product before my sample ran out. It works brilliantly, like other reviews state..the balling up is likely the gel itself and not just exfoliated skin, however, skin definitely gets in the mix! I have pretty dry skin and it is usually quite rough on the sides of my jaw..it's always been like this since I was a young teen. This is one of the only products that makes my skin as soft as soft can be! I cannot recommend it enough, even for sensitive skin.
TDA from Connecticut
I use this twice a week. It helps clean up skin issues on the face like pores and dead skin allowing other other products like moisturizers to absorb better.
Love love love this product
Harley from Kenner, La
I am obsessed with this dead skin peeling Angel sent from heaven in a bottle. Love it
Tess Rose from California
After reading all the reviews I guess I was expecting more...I've been using this product for close to a month and haven't seen really any changes to my skin. I don't hate it, don't love it. It's just whatever.
wegs from AZ
Don't see any difference in my skin after using it. The gel is what balls up, not dead skin, and don't think my skin is any smoother after using it! Wish it did more as far as exfoliating.
This is a great product. Dead skin comes off immediately.
Lynn from Palm Springs, CA
Great product. Works as well as the $250 bottle I previously used.
Among the best skincare products I own
Katie from St. Louis MO
I adore this product. From the ease of application, to watching the dead skin lift off of my face before my very eyes, to the smooth skin texture that it reveals, it is one of my favorite products. My sensitive, acne-prone skin can't tolerate all potions, but it seems to love this one.
ER from MN
I haven't seen any noticeable difference in my skin and I've used this two or three times a week for nearly two months. The "peeling" is just the product pilling, not skin sloughing off as I would assume based on product description. I was excited to try this as the reviews are rave, but my skin looks and feels the same after 10 or so uses. I'll finish this tube but won't purchase again.
Tried it and liked it
DTC from Memphis
Used this for the first time and it worked well for exfoliating my skin.
Makes your face sooo smooth
Krys from California
I use this twice a week when I want to remove texture and soften the skin! This products works a million times better than a physical exfoliant
Beauty routine staple
Candice from Tucson,az
I have such sensitive skin so finding safe/gentle BUT effective exfoliating products was a nightmare. But then i found this! I have been faithfully using this for years about once to twice week and it is just amazing how soft and flake free it makes my skin! Never any irritation after I use it i just immediately apply good moisturizer and my skin looks like i came from a expensive facial! So long estheticians I can get same results from my own home. Even though it seems pricey its worth it by far for how great it works and how long it lasts me. One bottle almost goes a year only using it once to twice a week. You will not be disappointed!!!
