I’ve wanted to try a facial peel since we learned about them in Cosmetology school but I was scared that it would hurt and I’ve heard some horror stories about having bad reactions after the fact. However, when I was sent the Pixi Peel and Polish I figured it was the perfect time to actually try a “salon facial peel” at home. Obviously I knew going in that this wasn’t going to be as strong as going to an actual esthetician but it would let me experience it in the comfort of my home to decide if I wanted to try an actual salon peel in the future. Let’s talk more about how the Pixi Peel and Polish works and my thoughts of it!
Pixi Peel and Polish: About
The Pixi Peel and Polish is an enzyme peel that resurfaces the face for a more radiant and smoother complexion. This may sound a little scary but what is actually happening is that the fruit enzymes, like papaya and orange, go in and loosen the dead skin. Once the dead skin is loosened lactic acid goes in and exfoliates the skin and then sugar extracts polish the skin taking away dullness leaving behind brighter skin. Essentially you are getting a lighter salon peel that you can do yourself.

Pixi Peel and Polish: How to Use
The Pixi Peel and Polish is to be used 2 – 3 times a week and can be used either in the morning or evening. Take a small amount and apply to a dry face and neck, once applied you can actually massage the product in for 30 seconds to get a more in-depth peel. Let sit for 5 minutes and then rinse off and pat dry!
Pixi Peel and Polish: Review
As I mentioned, I’ve never had this professionally done because I was afraid that it would hurt, burn, insert painful feeling here. So I was a little apprehensive when I first started to try the Pixi Peel and Polish, however, I sucked it up buttercup and applied it and it didn’t hurt at all! Honestly, the first try that was all I really noticed, that it didn’t hurt. Since then I’ve gone back and used it a few more times to gather my thoughts about it and here’s what I’ve come up with…First there is a bit of a scent that’s a little weird, kinda fruity but kinda floral, that does go away after you’ve rinsed it and went through the rest of you skin care. If fragrances irritate you then you might want to skip this because it is there for a bit. Next, a little goes a long way with this peel. The first time I used it I didn’t know exactly how it was going to apply so I put a big glob in my hand and wound up having to waste a lot of product. Lastly, this peel really does work! My skin has looked brighter and healthier than it has in a long time and the only thing I’ve changed is adding this into my rotation!
Pixi Peel and Polish: Final Thoughts
In all honesty if you’re wanting a brighter complexion or have been wanting to try a facial peel but feel that they’re either to expensive or may hurt then this product is for you. Seriously, the only people that I can see not really liking this are people who have NO interest in facial peels or people who aren’t big fans of fragrances. So if you are neither of those people head on out and pick this up!
