One of my favorite things to do at the end of the day is to take off my make up, put on a face mask, make some tea, and curl up to watch an episode of one of my favorite shows. I have quite a collection of face masks, and I pulled this Ole Henriksen micro peel from the bottom of my stockpile and tried it out for the first time the other day.
Ole Henriksen Micro Peel: What I liked
-Simple 3 step process makes it pretty hard to screw up
-Almond polish was amazing! It's a thick paste with these little scrubbies that exfoliate so well. My skin was so soft after the almond polish.
-Lemon strip tingled a bit, which I love. It wasn't an intense feeling, just a little buzz.
-Soothing chamomile immediately calmed down the tingle from the lemon strip.
Ole Henriksen Micro Peel: What I didn't like
-A three step process is fine for once in a while, but if you're doing this once a week as it suggests on the packaging, having to stop every few minutes to do the next step would be annoying for me when I'm trying to get through an episode of Downton Abbey (priorities, people!)
-While I liked the lemon strip and chamomile comfort, I honestly was blown away by the almond polish and think that the two paled in comparison. It's not really a dislike, but they almost seem pointless given how well the almond polish worked.
-It's advertised as a peel, and I didn't have any peeling action going on. Rather, my skin just felt really soft, as it does after I use a good exfoliant. It's not a big deal to me, but I'd pass on this if you're looking for an actual peel.
Are you into face masks? What do you recommend?
