Keihl’s brand introduced the Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate as a healthy alternative to the popular and most effective anti-aging method, chemical peeling. The Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate is a gentle exfoliate that can be used as a nightly treatment for dealing with signs of aging, dry and uneven skin.
The product has been reviewed by Beauty Member who has sensitive skin and can share with us her experience after using the product every night for two weeks.
Waking up in the morning and seeing smooth, fresh looking skin is the absolute best start to a day. It is convenient to have a product treating your skin during the night and that is exactly what Kiehl’s Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate does. The nightly serum starts the cell turnover process and exfoliates the skin overnight.
One of the most interesting parts of the product is its special ingredient, quinoa husk extract. Quinoa is known to be a nutritional element of a healthy diet, and it seems to do wonders for the skin as well!
The product has a yellow color, it is liquid with no distinct smell and a very light texture. The product has to be applied gently on the skin after cleaning the face with cleanser. When applied to the skin there is a slight burning sensation but only for a few seconds. It is best to apply a moisturizer afterwards, even though the concentrate contains aloe leaf juice that also hydrates the face.
It is important not to put too much of it on, as it might feel too sticky. This concentrate is good for people with dull, dry and uneven skin with occasional irritations or scars from previous acne.
After using the product consistently for two weeks, I noticed how my skin became more even and had fewer imperfections. I have quite sensitive skin, but the peel effect did not cause any negative reactions. In fact, it made my dry skin look soft, radiant and tight.
About once a month my skin gets irritated and a few spots appear. Using the concentrate helped reduce the redness, irritations and overall left my skin looking healthier. I plan to keep using the product every day and I am sure the product will help me achieve more balanced looking skin.
