Q: does this help with skin discoloration

submitted by Asia cannon - 10 months ago
  • A: This may help with skin discoloration, since it peels away dry, dead skin, but results will vary by individual.

I don’t like the smell of it at all but it’s bearable. The product itself works wonders. I have sensitive acne prone skin and this has been a lifesaver. It gets rid of all of my dead skin without making me break out. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a exfoliant.

I have very sensitive skin and have issues with exfoliants being too rough. This product is perfect! It helps my skin feel softer and isn't too harsh. Highly recommended.

It’s funny to me that the negative reviews are split between it being too harsh and too gentle; like the other 5 star reviews I find it to be perfect. Those who say it doesn’t do anything must be putting it on wet skin. Yes the product does ball up with your skin, but personally I find it super rewarding and you can FEEL the difference. I like to follow with a lightly textured exfoliating pad with green tea and other calming ingredients to remove any residual product and seal my newly fresh skin.

I received This product complementary with an order that I placed. I never would have ordered it on my own, but I’m so glad they sent the sample. It is an amazing product and I have since went back and Replenished with full-size product.

I used to use Peter Thomas Roth Peeling Gel but, I get the same amount results and the same amount with this Elf Exfoliater, at one fourth of the price. I love this stuff! I moisturize afterwards and my face feels so smooth and soft. I'm so glad I tried this!

I was shocked when I used this. The amount of dead skin that came off just from a few circular motions on my cheek was insane. Absolutely better than any abrasive scrub I have ever used

I bought this a month ago and i use it twice a month since the exfoliation is really deep and good, there's no need for daily use since you can irritate your skin. Really good product

Initially when I got this I thought it was just a gimmick. I put on gloves to see if it was still look like it was peeling and of course it was just the product pilling up. HOWEVER. I later ate my words because I used it on my skin that was dry and flaky and it completely got rid of all the flaking skin. I even accidentally rubbed one spot raw… But that was my fault. Fantastic gentle exfoliate. The product pilling into little balls provides the perfect amount of friction to get rid of dead skin. Even if you have to do it a couple days in a row, your skin will be super smooth. I can use it on my skin while I am doing my mild chemical pills at home and it does not burn or cause any further irritation, but gets rid of the skin that is flaking off of my face. It’s much better than any physical exfoliate or an exfoliating mitt. Also, it is not overly drying, but I would not say it adds moisture to the skin O er all, this might be one of my new gotos.

Not for those with PCOS/prone to cystic acne

2 out of 5 stars
GreenBean23 - 2 months ago

I think skincare is highly variable depending on the person, so I’m sure this product works for others. I have PCOS and am prone to cystic acne that is mostly treated by birth control, and have blackheads on my nose, but cleansing and moisturizing twice a day is still important. I don’t think this would be good for people with hormonal acne or sensitive skin/sensitive to fragrance. I wish they would stop including these Holy Hydration products in my order when im actively trying to avoid things with fragrance or that are non-comegenic. I got this item for free while ordering the pure skin and blemish cleansers. It smells nice, so I was tempted to try it, but unfortunately it caused small red pimples around my nose and t zone each of the 3 times I tried it. Luckily they cleared up in 3-5 days. I thought it would clear up the blackheads on my nose, but it did not, and I think a clay mask would work better. Will be giving to a friend. I have liked the pure skin and blemish cleansers as a cruelty free alternative to the CeraVe I’ve been using for years (pure skin in morning, blemish or pure skin at night), so if you sound like me, check those out instead! Also the cellulose thing is interesting and misleading like other reviews have said, but if the product helps your skin, then I suppose that doesn’t really matter, just is a weird marketing thing because the cellulose is exfoliating so they could just market it as that instead.

Dupe for the Peter Thomas Roth firm x peeling gel?

This product is a quarter of the cost of Peter Thomas Roth firm x peeling gel! NO JOKE!! I will repurchase this item as long as it is being sold! PRO TIP DO NOT WET FACE B4 APPLYING PRODUCT! if you do you won't get even close to the same effect! It literally peels off all the dead dry skin. I use this every Sunday and Wednesday also do not over use its not good for you and will literally waste it. I'm so thankful for this product and I believe it's a dupe for the Peter Thomas Roth firm x exfoliant

This is exactly what I needed after a week in Maine over Christmas! I’m from coastal California, so I experienced some of the worst dry skin of my life after a week in a cold, dry climate. I already have dry skin, but when I got back I could literally feel the dry texture on my face. Moisturizers and oils did nothing. I’ve never used a chemical exfoliant, but immediately after putting this on the dry skin just started coming off! No burning, only a tiny bit of redness, and it only hurt a little on a spot where a blemish was still healing (if you have acne/open skin it probably would hurt a lot). My skin still isn’t what it was but I’m sure after a second use in a couple days it’ll be good as new.

This gentle peel is oddly satisfying. It goes on like a cream, but once rubbed in it looks and feels like your skin is peeling. Your skin will be as smooth as a baby's bum after using!!!

I've used the exfoliant twice and did notice that it was gentle on the skin, which is a big plus. Still need to use it more to truly be convinced and keep on purchasing.

I love the gentle peeling exfoliant- for real, on my 3rd bottle. I have extremely sensitive skin and was hesitant at first, but after reading reviews I had to try. Best part: leaves my skin soooo smooth without drying my face more!

I’m not sure how this works but as soon as I apply it to my face, my skin starts sloughing off. I tried rubbing it on my fingers to see if it has the same effect because I thought something may have been wrong with the product. Nope- I just have very dry facial skin. It does cause irritation in my skin and does just as good a job at exfoliating my skin as a product I bought from a direct sales company that cost $50. I’m definitely adding this to my skincare routine.
