Review: MD Skincare Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel
A while back I ran out of my DDF glycolic cleansing pads so I decided to give this one a try after talking to one of the cast members at Sephora. I picked up the seven-day pack so that I could try it out and see if I liked it before investing about $100 for a 30-day supply.
Initial thoughts: $28 + tax for 7 days worth of gycolic acid, in a tin, is a bit steep. I also noticed that each day’s peel was individually wrapped but blistered into sets of two; the peel and the neutralizer. I also noticed that this peel kind of smelled like mosquito repellent.
Unlike most pre-moistened pads that tend to be dry, I found that these have a bit too much liquid on them.
Overall: While, I did like that the MD Skincare Alpha Beta pads really worked to help clear out and clear up my skin, I don’t think that I would repurchase these. The pre-moistened pads was overly saturated with the liquid it felt like my skin is burning until the product evaporated from my skin. What I ended up doing in the end was gently wring out some of the liquid into a separate jar. After doing that my skin didn’t feel like it was burning. This product does work and I found that my skin had a nice rosy glow to it. I has also noticed that the acne that I had around my jaw and on my cheeks were getting smaller or had completely vanished. I also noticed that some of the acne scars that I had were starting to fade. If you have acne-prone skin and some extra money to spend then I think that this is the product for you because it helps to exfoliate the skin without being abrasive like manual/granular scrubs can be.
