Erno Laszlo C-Peel: pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I've recently tried out the Erno Laszlo C-Peel, which is a great 2-step peel. It's similar to the Philosophy Microdelivery Peel (if you're familiar with that), but I feel that the Erno Laszlo C-Peel worked better for me. I love the way this peel works, how smooth my skin is afterwards, and how good it smells.

Erno Laszlo C-Peel Review:
I love peels and scrubs, I seriously think I have a sickness because I can never have enough, lol. I was really excited to try out the Erno Laszlo C-Peel. My first thoughts of this peel was "wow, this looks very similar to Philosophy's The Microdelivery Peel", which I already have, been using for years, and really like. However, I knew the Erno Laszlo brand has some great products so I was anxious to try it out.

I really liked the packaging; it looked luxurious and I know looks aren't everything, but it helps get me in a mind set that I'm indulging myself when I do my peel. Sometimes that can be important to a busy mom (like myself), especially when doing my skincare is my most relaxing part of my day. But of course, like I said, looks aren't everything. Good thing this product has brains and beauty!

Using this peel was simple; just apply the peel/scrub part - massaging into skin for a couple minutes. Then apply a few drops of the activator to your fingertips, rub together and apply over top the scrub. When you apply the activator you'll get a warming sensation, which is nice (not burning). Leave on for a minute or two, then rinse off. I like to take a wet washcloth or paper towel to remove the peel, and then rinse my face. I feel it gives me a little tiny bit extra exfoliation.

Afterwards, my face was super smooth, soft and had a nice glow. It worked better for me than Philosophy's The Microdelivery Peel, but they are similar. The Erno Laszlo version is a little more money than the Philosophy version ($12 more), but I feel it worked better for me so it would be worth the extra $12 to use a product that I feel is a better match or my skin.

Overall, another great peel that I would recommend!
