ALTHEA MILK PEEL CREAM MASK BY DANXLEES
Althea's Milk Peel Clay-to-Foam Exfoliant Mask
Have you tried Althea’s Milk Peel Cream Mask? It’s clay to foam exfoliant and mask (talking about dual personality much). I have been a faithful follower after 1 bottle and have repurchased 3 times. Let’s dive a little bit into the ingredients:
Contains amino acids that help hydrate and soothe the skin
Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen Leaf Extract)
Contains BHA that deeply exfoliate pores and regulate sebum secretion
PHA that gently exfoliates and also acts as an antioxidant
AHA that exfoliates dead skin cells and hydrates
Ingredients & Benefits
In terms of texture, it has avery soft and smooth feel that spreads out easily. Think of softened butter, but 1000 times lighter. Itdoes not have a strong scentand its smell reminds me of baby’s formula. When spread on the skin, it takes about30 seconds to transform to a foam(imagine unbaked meringue), which you then leave on for 1 to 3 minutes. I usually need and recommend 1-minute max, for those who have sensitive skin. For oilier skin types, you can experiment with longer leave-on time.
After 1 minute, I proceed to rinse the product off and notice that myskin is immediately softer and smoother to touch. Also, my skin does not feel uncomfortably tight as I would with other exfoliants out there. On a scale of 1 to 5 on skin tightness, 1 being least and 5 very tight, I would give this a 1.
I have beenusing this product on a daily basisand it did not dry my skin out nor did it irritate my skin. The small bumps that I get on my forehead reduced significantly (in terms of size and quantity) and when I stopped using it, the bumps came back. Also, theblackheads on my nose as well as the pores reducedin appearance and visibility. For the gents, I would strongly recommend you to use itbefore shavingas it helps reduce ingrown hairs, as I did notice before shaving my facial hair.
The downside to this wonderful product would be the packaging. It comes in a vacuum pump bottle which is great for dispensing products until the very last pump. However, it does not consistently dispense product in the first few pumps and the last few pumps. I have experienced this in at least 2, of their packaging. The only fix I did was to knock the product on the sink top, inverted, to get the product pumped out. Hoping that they fix this and make this the ultimate product in their collection.
Great for all skin types, I really do hope that you guys and girls give this a try and I am sure you’ll love it, even for you sensitive peeps out there!
