Beauty Abroad: The Skinfood Pineapple Morning Peel Soft Review
Sometimes in the morning my skin needs something a little extra to get it kick started for the long day ahead. That’s where The SkinFood Pineapple Morning Peel comes in!
The Skinfood Pineapple Morning Peel acts like a toner but has the benefits of a peel.
What is it?
It’s a facial peel that sports a watery texture. Unlike traditional Asian facial peels which sport a gel formula, The Skinfood Pineapple Morning Peel acts and feels somewhat like a toner.
How’s it work?
Rather than rubbing it onto dry skin, you’ll be applying it to dry skin with a cotton pad or some facial cotton. Simply dose your cotton with a bit of the product and proceed to swipe your face. As you swipe you’ll notice that the product pills off in little balls (you can see how it does this in the below swatches) which in fact is the gentle exfoliating action that is removing dull, dry skin from your face. After use, rinse with water and you’re ready for makeup.
What’s it do?
The product revives tired skin in the AM to reveal a brighter, smoother surface. It’s a gentle exfoliating system that creates a nice workable canvas for makeup. It doesn’t make skin dry or tight but simply removes dead skin very gently and easily rather than doing so with harsh salt or sugar. Sadly, it does not smell of pineapple but sports more of a medical or chemical smell, this isn’t necessarily a bad or unpleasant smell but it’s not exactly fresh or fruity either.
Since my skin normally looks it’s best in the morning when I’ve taken proper care of it the evening before, I really find I do not need this however on days I am looking dull or got in late or simply skipped out on my hardcore night care routine, this is a great way to get my skin back under control and erases signs of fatigue and dullness.
Overall, the peel is fabulous but I do find I don’t use it nearly as much I’d like to as I simply forget to use it since I head right into the shower and use whatever is gracing my shower shelves at the moment. Since this isn’t shower friendly it gets pushed to the side alot. I actually wish I’d use it more as I like the results very much.
Quite nice and worth a haul.
I’ll even go so far as to slap a Muse Approval on it!
Skinfood is a brand sold exclusively in Korea and a few select Asian countries however E-bay is a good place to start searching for decently priced products.
