My work is pretty flexible so I decided that Monday was going to be my relax day. I used to get facials and massages all the time, but lately (as you know I'm a student again) I'm on a budget and can't afford to do the luxurious things I used to once do. Luckily, my bf has Mondays off so I volunteered him to be my masseuse and I was my own facialist. My bf is really sweet and gives me massages every now and then with this super good smelling L'Occitane Lavender massage gel! I'm a big fan of L'Occitane products and only use their soaps and have gotten my bf addicted as well.
I first discovered the original Dr. Gross Alpha Beta peel pads (very affordable) through Sephora a few years ago and really loved the product. These pads are essentially an anti-aging product that helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pores and give you glowing skin. When Dr. Dennis Gross reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try the new Medi-Spa peel kit, I couldn't be more excited since I know the quality of their products and how well they perform.
Overall, I am really happy with the results and how smooth and soft my skin feels. Even though it is a little pricey, you do get 16 pads and I'm going to cut those in half so this kit will last me for about half a year. The cost of one of these kit is about what I used to pay for one facial. When taking into account how long the kit lasts and what it does for my skin, I will definitely purchase this when I'm done using the sample kit.
The Medi-spa skit contains: 16 Pads, 1 Firming Peptide Milk + 1 cute little headband
I've been using the kit once a week for 3 weeks now and have seen vast signs of improvement in my skin. The first time I used it, my bf asked me if I went to get a facial because my skin had the same glow that I'd get from a microdermabrasion. The next day, one of my classmates told me that I looked very fresh faced. So I was really happy that the results were so dramatic that other people noticed! What I really like are that my pores look much smaller, my fine lines around my eyes are reduced and my skin is so nicely hydrated and dewy after each use. The process is super gentle and I feel absolutely no burning sensation as I’ve felt during a microderm.
Step 1: You take these pre-soaked pads and swipe it all over the face until the pad gets dry. I’ve read via Sephora that someone cut the pads in half to save money. It’s a super genius idea because the pads are really big and doesn't really dry up after a few minutes. My skin feels exfoliated and cleansed after Step 1 and my pore size and fine lines are reduced.
Step 2: The small bottle is the firming peptide milk that you massage onto the face after waiting a few minutes. According to Sephora, the milk neutralizes the skin and enhances the acids in the pads. I don’t know about that, but the milk does make my skin really soft and supple.
