Dr. Denese Firming Facial Resurfacing Peel Review

September 16, 2009

Recently I was sent a new product, Dr. Denese Firming Facial Resurfacing Peel, to keep my skin glowing and those evil flakes at bay.

The Firming Facial Resurfacing Peel is a creamy orange peel that claims to deliver a “brightened, refreshed complexion by deeply exfoliating to reveal smooth, radiant skin that is firm, toned, and glowing, while improving skin’s texture and elasticity in just five minutes.”

It comes in a generous 2 oz jar and smells just like orange sherbet (yum!) Unlike most exfoliators, it does not contain any harsh grains or beads. Instead, it contains 3 types of acids – Azelaic Acid from wheat, Lactic Acid from milk and Glycolic Acid from sugar cane – to exfoliate and even out skin tone.

To use the peel, all you have to do is apply it onto dry skin, leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes then wash it off with warm water. When I put it on my super thin, sensitive skin, I did experience a mild tingling sensation but the tingling went away soon after I washed it off and my skin was left really smooth and radiant.

I have yet to see any long term effects – I have only been using this for 2 weeks – but if you are looking for the perfect pick-me-up that will deliver instant glowy skin, this is definitely the product you should try out!

    Hmm I am going to see where I can get this in Vancouver because I am also on the look out for products that compact dull winter skin. I am guessing this is 1-2 times a week treatment? Phyllis update us if you see any long term beneficial effects!

    Yes Amy, you are supposed to use this 1-2 times a week. I will post another update in a couple of weeks.
