I had been wanting to try this facial peel for the longest time, all thanks to Shaanxo. She is one of my favourite YouTubers and I always believe her reviews and when she says she loves something, I have to get my hands on it. I have only tried a few facial peels in the past which I hadn't seen any results with but this one has totally changed my opinion on facial peels - I am obsessed now!
The ApiClear Purifying Facial Peel from Manuka Doctor is a peel off face mask especially designed to brighten, renew your complexion and balance skin imperfections. It is perfect for congested skin with issues such as blemishes, blackheads and sun damage. It has powerful natural ingredients from the hive, purified Bee Venom and anti-bacterial and skin smoothing benefits. Some of the key ingredients in this facial peel are Manuka Honey, purified Bee Venom, Hyaluronic acid, silk extract and vitamin E to name a few.
To apply this mask you need to make sure that the skin is cleansed and dried. Apply it in a thin and even layer, avoiding the hair line and brows, and leave on for 10-15 minutes until dry then peel off beginning at the jaw line. It was very easy to peel off, I stretched out my face and it started to lift off making it even easier to remove. Almost every single time I have used this it peels off in one piece. The key to getting it to peel off in one piece is to make sure that you have applied an even layer so it is all completely dry before you remove it. I had heard that it does slightly hurt to remove, but I didn't have any issues and I actually really enjoyed taking it off. It's like when you was at school and would put glue on your skin and peel it off.
I have wrote about my struggles with my skin before and its not a secret that I struggle to keep my skin clear. It usually always has a break out or two and the redness never disappears. Since I started using this twice a week my skin has never looked this good and it is 100% down to this product as I haven't changed anything else in my skincare routine. I have noticed that each time I use this any previous breakouts get smaller and smaller and I haven't had any new ones appear since. When I have spotted that a new blemish is started to form, I will use this in the evening and it completely stunts it and it disappears! I have always had a issue with blackheads and never found a product that would help make them go away but since using this I started to see them get smaller and smaller and start to disappear. Even though it dries on the skin, it doesn't dehydrated it. It just leaves it feeling clean, soft and smooth. Since I have been using this regularly over the past couple of weeks my skin has looked so much clearer and brighter. I can't get enough of this facial peel!
