Ideally, our skin takes care of exfoliation on its own, but there are many reasons it may not. If you don’t take proper care of your skin, pores can become clogged; if you subject it to harsh environmental factors, or even certain medications, that process can be hindered. Even skin that is properly cared for can look lackluster at times. I am so pleased to be able to try the Water Peels from Aquareveal– they are truly fabulous products!
The company’s founder, Tammy, grew up in a Korean household- and Koreans are MAJOR believers in exfoliation. Skin is the largest organ of our bodies, and serves to protect, as well as release toxins. However, overexfoliating can compromise the skin’s natural moisture barrier, leading it to dry out faster (Park-De Boer, 2015). I remember when I first started exfoliating as a teenager- I thought the harsher the better. My skin was SO inflamed!
Aquareveal Water Peels are designed to gently exfoliate the skin without damaging the natural moisture barrier. Your skin is improved without harsh scrubs, acids, or enzymes (Park-De Boer, 2015). I am not using tretinoin right now due to using the Bionova skincare regimen. But, when I was using it, I would get flaky skin. I wish I’d had the Aquareveal Water Peel at that time- my skin was already irritated, and harsh scrubs were a pain. Literally!
When I first received the products, even the packaging was stunning- it was wrapped with aqua blue tissue paper and silver and white shredding- like opening a present. (I’m honestly quite impressed with the way some companies are shipping items these days!)
The product packaging is also beautiful- simple but elegant. The pearlescent effect with foil accents just exudes luxury- there is no doubt the contents are very special! I’m even going to make my hubby try these out! I’ll be posting individual reviews soon, so keep checking back!
