I’m back with another Tuesday Favourites for you guys, and this one’s a little special for me. When I first started my blog, I cranked out every single Tuesday Favourites post that you’ve read up until now over the course of a few days and queued them up until last Tuesday. I wasn’t really sure what I was doing when it came to blogging, and was uncertain if the posts were going to take off. However, so far it seems like you guys have really enjoyed them, so I’m going to keep continuing on with the series! Thank you all so much for all your support so far, it really does mean the world to me.
Anyways, back to this weeks product: the Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel! If you’ve kept up with my posts so far, you’ll already know I exfoliate religiously. I’ve tried out all sorts of products for exfoliating my face; from scrubs, to enzyme peels and masks — but this product reigns supreme. When I first got a sample of it from Sephora, I didn’t even really think about it — I try so many samples every time I shop there and it really takes something special for me to know instantly I need to buy the full-sized product. However, when I got around to trying this stuff, it literally blew my mind.
This product combines all my favourite things in an exfoliator — effectiveness, enzymes and efficiency. First of all, and this may be a personal preference, but I love a good enzyme peel. I’ve tried a couple of scrubs here and there and found them either ineffective or irritating — plus I kind of hate the texture. Rather than having to scrub down my whole face, I love the convenience of applying a product and having my skin perfectly exfoliated by the time I wash it off. However, a lot of peels can take time; I’ve had some products work as quickly as three minutes, while some have taken up to five. This, obviously, can be less than ideal if your ever in a rush.
This is where FirmX comes in — it literally works instantly. You just apply it and rub it on dry skin, and your dead skin cells just rub right off. It’s so easy its almost unbelievable — expect you can actually SEE the results immediately. Its not harsh on my face at all, either, and I’m pretty prone to sensitive skin. Plus, it removes everything evenly, avoiding the patchiness or need to scrub intensely that I often find scrubs come with.
If this sounds like a product you’d like to try, you can find it on Sephora here! And once again, thank you for tuning in every Tuesday!
So much love for you all,
