If soft, smooth, glowing skin is what you’re after, the Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel is about to be your new best friend! I’ve sworn by regular use of glycolic acid for the past couple of years after seeing what a difference it made in my skin and the Overnight Resurfacing Peel is that and more.
It’s an AHA/BHA peel formulated with 15 botanically-derived acids. Glycolic, lactic and malic acids help to get rid of dead, dull skin cells that deprive skin of it’s glow, while hyaluronic acid and essential fatty acids sooth and hydrate. Basically, this stuff is magic in a bottle.
I like to cleanse my face and then apply 1-2 pumps of this all over, avoiding the eye area. There is a slight tingling when you first apply it, but it doesn’t hurt and goes away quickly. It’s a super lightweight texture that dries down on the skin fairly quickly. I try not to apply this immediately before I go to bed, because I’m a stomach sleeper and I don’t want it to get rubbed off as soon as I put my face to a pillow. I like to give this about half an hour to sink in before hopping into bed.
This peel really does deliver immediate results! Every time I’ve used this, I’ve woken up to super soft, smooth, healthy looking skin. It does such a good job of breaking down dry, dull skin and definitely helps bring back the radiance and glow. I like to use this once or twice a week because I have other acids in my skincare routine and I don’t want to overdo it, but if you don’t then you’d probably be fine to work your way up to using this 4-5 times a week depending on how your skin tolerates it, though I find it to be quite gentle.
I read SO many reviews about this peel before buying it (because hey, it’s not the cheapest product ever at $58 and if I’m going to drop dollars then I need to know it’s going to work!) and it was 5 star reviews everywhere I turned. Reviewers have claimed that it’s helped with everything from rosacea, melasma, dark spots, acne and overall skin texture. For me, my biggest skincare concerns are texture and milia around my eyes, and this peel has definitely helped to improve both!
