So for those of you who follow me regularly, you’ll know that this year a big concentration of mine has been skincare. I’ve always been a makeup person, but never concentrated too much on my skincare (sadly!). But this year, I’ve done SO much better, from wearing sunscreen diligently to implementing a proper skincare routine. And the results are showing! When it comes to specific products that have helped a lot, one was the Dermalogica Bio-Lumin C serum. And in terms of treatments – peels have also done wonders! So, I was pretty excited when this product landed on my desk. Yip, now one can do a peel in the comfort of their own home. Say hello to the Dermalogica Rapid Reveal Peel.
So what exactly is the Rapid Reveal Peel?
The Rapid Reveal Peel kick-starts skin renewal for instant radiance, speeding up removal of dull cells on the surface of your skin to reveal brighter, smoother, healthier-looking skin below. This enhanced cell renewal helps make up for what your skin naturally loses over time. One of the best advantages to this product is that there’s no downtime to the skin! Your skin won’t be red or irritated at all.
I know we always read about a product with “visible results” and we kind of roll our eyes inside. Trust me, I’ve been there. Spending hard earned cash on a product that’s little more than a glorified moisturizer. Well, this product was not the case for me. Did I mention it’s a professional-grade at-home peel. Yup, the good stuff! I saw improvements in my skin texture after the second use and have now incorporated the peel into my Sunday night routine. Just to start the week with my skin looking great, you know?
So let’s move on!
Why do we need a product like the Rapid Reveal Peel?
As we age, our cell turnover slows down, resulting in longer recovery time as well as dullness, fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. It’s actually been a little frightening for me watching my skin look a bit older this year. It’s the first year that I’ve actually noticed it! I guess that’s what comes with moving into your later twenties.. sigh! Additionally, our skin is also damaged through our lifestyle, habits and environmental exposure and because of slow cell turnover – the damage is much more noticeable and harder to correct. That’s where the Rapid Reveal Peel comes in – kickstarting the skin renewal to speed up that removal of the dull skin cells.
Peels remove all that dry, dull debris and reveal the softer, smoother skin underneath
- A unique complex of phytoactive Alpha Hydroxy Acids helps reveal new and firmer skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing dulling surface debris without causing dehydration.
- Fermented plant enzymes help even skin tone by resurfacing the skin and accelerating cell turnover.
- Australian Caviar Lime Extract smoothes and brightens for a more radiant complexion.
How do you use this product?
I generally use this product shortly before bed. I take off all my makeup and cleanse my face so that it is completely clean. Then, I get one of the tubes and massage the product into my skin in a circular motion. There’s actually quite a lot of product in each tube, so you can be quite liberal with your application. Then, it’s recommended that you allow the product to activate for 3-7 minutes, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. You may experience slight tingling and/or warming. Personally, I do experience some tingling but it’s really not much pain at all, literally just a tingle On a scale of one to getting your bikini area waxed- this is MILD!
What about the downtime?
But what about the downtime? “With today’s innovative technology, we’re happy to report that the latest peels result in little to no downtime at all!” says Charmaine Cooper, Education Manager for Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute. And honestly I can agree with this. Perhaps doing it at night is a little safer than just before work – but you really won’t notice any redness.
Let’s take a moment for the awesome packaging? It comes in this zip case and can stick on your wall too!
The price is R1495 for ten tubes.
If there was one Dermalogica product I’d say don’t dismiss because of the price, it’s this one. I know many people look at the price tag and think immediately it’s too expensive. However, in this case it’s a little different. Remember, you’re getting 10 peels in the box. Anytime you go for a peel you’re going to spend at least R500! So with the Rapid Reveal Peel, you’re getting 10 treatments at a price of R150 each. From that perspective, I really think this is a product worth purchasing.
Will one use of this product cause you to have flawless skin? No, but then again I don’t think any product will. However, I think using this in conjunction with a good skincare routine – you’ll definitely notice some changes! Especially with regards to fine lines after the second or third use. Your skin will feel softer, smoother and the texture more even. I really do enjoy the feeling of my skin after using this product. It’s noticeably smoother in the week after using the product, and you can see a visible difference in how your makeup looks on your face. This is due to the sloughing away of the dead skin cells, so the surface area is a much better one to apply makeup on!
