I have been lucky enough to try out La Prairie Cellular Resurfacing 3-Minute Peel during some spa treatments, but I never have had the cherished stuff at home for some regular use. Now that is has been on my vanity for a couple weeks, I can official declare it’s even better than I thought. The results after periodic peels is exfoliated, smooth, soft skin.
This once-a-week peel is “professional level” exfoliation that you most certainly feel working. Professional strength AHAs, BHA, Salicylic Acid and Mixed Fruit Acids clean the surface and exfoliate, pushing fresh, younger cells to the surface.
The peel itself has a pleasant fresh floral scent. The large jar comes with a brush (it sits in a small slot at the base of the jar). I like the ritual of using the ultra-soft brush to get an even, complete application. You can get into those nooks and crannies around your nose. Immediately, I feel tingling, almost itchiness, but not to the point of discomfort.
When you rinse it off – literally after three minutes – somehow a silky texture moisturizes and calms the skin. The peel emulsifies into a silky gel that requires a washcloth to remove. My skin is a little red immediately after use, but calms down to be even and soft in 20 minutes. Despite this, probably better for evening use.
