Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel is…different! Let me explain.
Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel($69.90)is an exfoliator, or rather as the company calls it..a facial peeler. And yup, that’s actually a better description! Everybody can use it, no matter what your skin type is. Made with 100 % pure Moroccan Argan Oil, tea leaf extract, aloe vera, orange peel extract, papaya extract, pomegranate extract and cucumber extract, it’s got a lot of great ingredients to hydrate and nourish skin while literally, and I mean literally- PEELING away dull, dead skin cells.
INGREDIENTS: Water, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Maris Sal, Aloe Barbadensis Lead Juice, Carbomer Triethanolamine, Decydroacetic Acid, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, nylon-66, phenoxyethanol (fragnance) supplement, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil (Argan Oil), orange (citrus Aurantium Dulcis) Peel Extract, Papaya (carica Papaya) Extract, Pomegranate (punica Granatum) Extract, Cucumber (cucumis Sativus) Fruit Extract, Dunaliella Bardawil Extract, Solanum Lycopersicum Tomato Fruit
As you can see there are loads of natural extracts in Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel like aloe vera which is anti-inflammatory and smooths the skin. There’s orange peel extract to help to reduce oiliness in the skin and papaya extract to dissolve the dead skin cells. Pomegranate extract will help to prevent and reverse dryness and reduced elasticity, and cucumber extract to also calm skin irritations.
It’s indeed a gel! No grainy beads in it at all, because that’s not how it works. What you do is apply a generous layer of Soft Peeling Gel onto clean wet skin, and then start massaging it into your face for 1 – 2 minutes. I highly recommend doing this in the shower ONLY, because what happens is that it starts to kind of disappear into your skin, but then you’ll notice these kind of gummy flakey bits on your skin appear. And they are kind of sticky to be honest, and unless you have a good stream of water handy, a little hard to rinse off. I decided to jump in the shower to rinse it off, because even a washcloth wasn’t working. I was kind of miffed and ready to throw the stuff into the garbage after that.
UNTIL I SAW MY FACE IN THE MIRROR AFTER. WOW.
My face was so SMOOTH. And BRIGHTER. And TIGHTER. But not dry at all! What those gummy flakes were was my dead, dry skin cells sloughing off and it was kind of an alarming amount to be honest! But I guess that’s how much build up there was to get rid of because I didn’t recognize my skin after using Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel. It’s really neat! Twice a week is the recommended amount you use it, and oh yeah, I’m going to keep using it! It didn’t irritate my intolerant, sensitive skin at all either. It’s a keeper! A messy one albeit, but messy GOODNESS.
You can order this weird yet neat product from Amazon!
Have you ever tried a peeling gel before? It’s a pretty different experience!
