The boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel is a lightweight peeling gel that is used as the third step in the boscia Japanese Cleansing Ritual. It is believed that a proper cleansing ritual ensures that all damaging debris and toxins are removed and the skin receives maximum benefits from treatment and moisturizing products. The boscia Japanese Cleansing Ritual starts with makeup removal, followed by cleansing, and ends with exfoliation. This is where the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel comes into play.
The boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel deeply cleanses the skin through three different mechanisms: as a physical peel to remove the outer layer of dead skin, as a chemical peel to penetrate deep into skin for in-depth exfoliation, and as a treatment to firm and brighten for a healthy complexion. So can boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel really help to “peel your way to a brighter day”? Keep reading below to find out!
Who is it for?
boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel is formulated for all skin types and is gentle enough for sensitive skin. While a peeling gel may not be an essential step in your skin care regimen, it can certainly be an indulgent addition to your routine. This is especially true if your skin looks dull or has an uneven tone, as the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel is formulated with many ingredients that can brighten and smooth your complexion.
As mentioned above, the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel works through three different mechanisms to cleanse and exfoliate the skin.
First, the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel is considered a physical peel because it is formulated with exfoliating molecules that bond together during the buffing action. These molecules then adhere and remove any outer layer of dead skin cells and debris. Getting rid of dead skin cells that build up on the surface of skin is crucial in order to maintain clear skin. According to Dr. Cory Torgerson, MD, PhD, FRCSC, consistent use of topical products builds extra dead cells on the skin, clogging up pores that eventually turn into undesirable acne or other dermal-related conditions. Furthermore, exfoliating becomes even more important as we age since the skin’s natural cycle of shedding dead cells slows down.
Another way the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel works to improve your complexion is as a chemical peel with the antioxidant-rich blend of multi-fruit AHAs (alpha-hydroxy acids). AHAs work by exfoliating the top layers of skin, thereby further removing excess oil, toxins, bacteria, and other impurities. Doing so visibly improves skin texture, adds hydration to the skin, supports the production of new skin cells, and, over time, firms the skin.
After the physical and chemical exfoliation is complete, the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel infuses a variety of botanical treatments into the skin. Take pomegranate enzymes, for instance. The enzymes from this fruit act as powerful antioxidants and promote firming and brightening benefits due to their composition of 11% lactic acid, 4% alpha-arbutin, and 2% salicylic acid. Lactic acid is another AHA that further contributes to exfoliation. Alpha-arbutin is a glycoside that is known for brightening dark spots on the skin. Finally, salicylic acid is a BHA (beta-hydroxy acid) that penetrates deeply into pores and also fights bacteria.
Lastly, the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel contains boscia’s Proprietary Botanical Blend, which is comprised of jojoba leaf and willowherb. Jojoba is an excellent ingredient for any topical product as its chemical composition mimics the skin’s natural sebum (oil) more closely than any other oil. Thus, the jojoba leaf found in this peel contributes to its gently, nourishing nature.
The other ingredient in boscia’s Proprietary Botanical Blend is willowherb. This botanical has been used by Native Americans for centuries to treat skin inflammation and reduce visible redness and irritation. Recent research has confirmed that willowherb does in fact possess potent anti-inflammatory properties.
How to use?
The boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel should be applied to clean, dry skin and gently massaged onto the face in a circular motion for gentle exfoliation. Rinse clean with water and follow with appropriate boscia moisturizer. This product is gentle enough to use daily.
Reviews for the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel claim that this product is a “must have” as well as a “miracle in a tiny bottle”. Those who have praised this product report noticing results such as smooth and refreshed skin, visibly smaller pores, and brighter, cleaner skin. Many users are impressed with the gentleness and effectiveness of the peel and love that while it cleanses the skin deeply it does not dry out or irritate the skin. This is a very positive response as many products with AHAs have the potential to excessively dry the skin. Most reviews also point out that you will be able to see the dead skin cells build up and fall off as you’re applying the peel, so you know that the product is working.
Overall, the boscia Exfoliating Peel Gel may fit perfectly into your skin care regimen if you’re looking for a product that deeply cleanses and exfoliates the skin to reveal a smoother, healthier complexion.
