Mask of the Week: Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel

The older I get (gulp!), the more I have began to take better care of my skin. Recently, I've become obsessed with face masks. I try to purchase Fresh Face Masks from LUSH, since it is full of beautiful, wholesome, natural ingredients, but I do enjoy trying other brands, like 7th Heaven, Sephora, indie brands, and more.

I try to do a mask at least once per week, usually twice. I have mostly dry to normal skin and I am getting increasingly concerned  with fine lines and wrinkles, so those are the type of masks I gravitate towards.  I plan to post a review of one mask every Sunday.

This time I tried the Luminous 3-Minute Peel by Real Chemistry.


Since this is technically a peel, the instructions were different than I am used to with masks (duh). In the shower, I washed my face (with LUSH 9-5), and then applied this clear gel as quickly as possible. As I rubbed it in, little clumps began to form. As the directions say, I massaged constantly for about 2 minutes as the whole thing clumped up more and more, then I rinsed it off.

Here is the back:


I have some thoughts.  Application was pretty cool. It warmed a bit on contact but not too much. The consistency was easy to work with and it was kind of cool to roll the gel into little clumps all over my face. However, I think it might be too harsh for me. My skin is definitely a little pink, but it is also very smooth. It feels tight, even after I put on lotion. I am pretty sure I would not purchase this product.

What do you think? Have you tried this product?
