Banish dull, dry winter skin with our latest discovery
Here in Los Angeles, Korean day spas are legendary for their exfoliation treatments. Following a systematic ritual of saunas and warm soaks in baths infused with mineral water, herbs and flowers, the treatment “highlight” includes an all over and up close “massage” where dead skin cells are sloughed off the body with the equivalent of a beauty brillo pad.
I’m on the shy side (in fact, I’ve never had a body massage) but still dream of entering one of these spas and emerging as soft and pink as a baby. Luckily, O.R.G Cosmeceuticals has packaged the best of these Korean beauty rituals into one gentle and natural formula that lets anyone experience the joy of smooth, supple, exfoliated skin from the comfort of their home.
Stef and I discovered the wonders of O.R.G’s Organic Mineral Peel at IMATS. It was our last stop, after a long, exhausting day of beauty shopping. Honestly, as we approached the booth I had mentally checked out and was daydreaming about kicking off my shoes and enjoying an afternoon nap.
But, within seconds of checking out the beautifully crafted line I felt that surge of excitement that comes when you discover a new “How did I live without it?” product (the latest Hollywood makeup artist must-have, no less!)
The Organic Mineral Peel has two formulas, one for the Face ($44) and one for the Body ($34) and is “the first all-natural enzyme exfoliant to offer instant results within minutes of application.” And that’s not just PR talk – you can actually see those old skin cells roll up, up and away within seconds of application.
Even better, these peels are not only incredibly effective, they’re gentle on the skin and full of good-for-you ingredients including Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Vitamins A and B1. Additionally, the Face peel adds in some skin brightening goodies like milk thistle, licorice root and bearberry.
All together, this simple organic peel sloughs away dead skin, reveling brighter, smoother skin that’s perfectly prepped for makeup application and/or self tanner.
You don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars and a couple of hours in the spa to get results. To use, simply spray the liquid peel directly on the skin, wait a couple of seconds for it to activate and then rub your hands (or a non abrasive washcloth) over the area and watch the old cells roll up into little balls. Gently wipe away what’s been exfoliated and you’re good to go!
Pretty simple, no? It’s so fast and effective, I’ve made the Organic Mineral Peel a part of my “going out” makeup routine. It leaves my face clean and smooth and helps foundation, concealer, even blush apply smooth and even for a practically flawless finish.
I’ve been using this peel a few times a week on my face over the last month and am thrilled with the results. My skin looks brighter and smoother and I swear even my fine lines are less noticeable.
I can’t wait to pick up the larger bottle of Organic Mineral Peel Body so I can spray it all over my winter-parched body. I’ve used the Face on a few troublesome spots – my feet and elbows – with amazing results. And for those self-tanning addicts, this product should become the new first step in your regimen.
