I gave myself a chemical peel


I turned 40, and developed a slight obsession with skincare products! I’m determined to look as young as I can, for as long as I can. I’ve spent a small fortune trying new things, some I love and some not so much.

A few weeks ago, I saw another blog where someone had tried an at home chemical peel. Her “after” pic was pretty impressive, so I thought I’d give it a go! It also only costs 9.50, so I wasn’t going to be upset if I didn’t love it. It’s a 10 minute exfoliating peel by The Ordinary Company.

Here’s what it looks like on…kinda looks like I’m bleeding, but I’m not!

And here’s what my skin looks like after. I also ordered the rose hip seed oil from them, which is why I look like a grease ball! Rose hip seed oil is the bomb.com and my skin loves it! I only use it at night because it is a little greasy looking, but it does absorb in your skin pretty quickly.

Also, ignore my under-eye circles! I’ve had them all of my life, but maybe there’s something out there to get rid of those too! If you know of something, holla!

For 9.50, you get an ounce of the product, and it will last for awhile because a little goes a long way. Don’t forget your neck when you use it! We can’t be having a young looking face and an old neck!!!

You can use this twice each week, per the instructions, but I think I’ll only use it once. And don’t make the mistake I did and use a scrub on your face the day before, because ouch…you’ll feel like your face is on fire! I couldn’t even leave it on my skin for the full 10 minutes the first time. I think a little tingling is normal though, because you are putting chemicals on your face!

Have you guys used this before or have even heard of this company? I had not but I’m now a fan, and will be trying some of the other products too. I also ordered a vitamin c moisturizer that I like a lot.

If you try this, please let me know what you think!
