I ordered the Skin Watchers Papaya Moisture Peeling Gel aka Exfoliant Gel, and tried for a week now (3 times). I have nothing but good things to say about it.
Skin exfoliation is an important routine to keep a healthy and glowing skin, and to rid of some common skin problems. I am already using a glycollic acid product (excellent in skin exfoliating), but it’s no secret that I have hypersensitive skin, so the acid product is best used in moderation. To compensate it, you can opt for enzymes based products such as papaya, pumpkin, and pineapple etc.
[The Missy’s Say]
Sticky and thick consistency.
Fresh and nice. I can’t tell if it’s papaya, but it’s fruity and nice.
2 methods: dry or wet
1. For sensitive skin – use on cleansed, wet skin. Massage adequate amount on skin and rub gently until the gel forms clumps and gradually rubbed away. (it can take a while, as compared to dry skin application)
2. For combination/oil skin – used on cleansed, dry skin. Massage adequate amount on skin and rub gently until the gel forms clumps and gradually rubbed away.
It leaves your skin very smooth, and I think it brightens the skin too. I also noticed that the marks (left by some bizarre break outs) are lightened.
I would recommend twice a week, although I do enjoy the process and it’s psychologically soothing to think that more dirt is being rubbed off. I am also using this on my elbows and kneecaps.
