First: This brand is hailing from PHL (for you guys reading outside my country)
This is an effective yet cheap DIY peeling cream. I've tried different brands of this as well. It's a combination of Tretinoin and Hydroquinone if I'm not mistaken.
Been using this for years. I've used BOTH cream and solution from 1 to 3. But I am not really satisfied with this even though I followed the recommended use of this. I even used this with the soap, sunblock and moisturizer all from the same brand, and still no wow effect. And no, I didn't used this both together or simultaneously, I am aware that there should be down time for this hence the years of experiment. The cream formula is the milder version of the solution.
I give 2 stars for peeling -- peeling means new skin regenerated. ;)
What to expect:
Impurities like pimples, blackheads and whiteheads (should be minimized with continuous use, but in my case it didn't)
Peeling (the itchy feeling comes with it), it can be visible or not -- micropeeling is the name :)
sting sensation -- should be tolerable if not, STOP USING IT (your skin is telling you it's waaaay too strong for your type or you're putting too much)
itchy feeling -- for some it can occur even if the skin is not yet peeling
What to do:
Use a mild cleanser for this esp. for no. 3 users, I am not sure (for your skin type) if you can use the exfoliant soap with it, maybe you can but don't let it stay on your face too long, as much as possible, wash it away in between 5-7 seconds. My recommendation: use a mild cleanser (cetaphil, physiogel, or castile soap)
Don't forget moisturizer to apply after 15-20 minutes. (morning and night)
Sunblock -- the higher SPF, the better. Best if your sunblock can double as moisturizer
Wear hat, cap, visor or use umbrella if going out. Stay away from the sun. Limit exposure from sources of heat like oven or stove (it can affect your face believe me)
Best of all, stay in your room (kidding :D)
When it's peeling, fight the urge of touching your face (I know I've been there). DON'T as in DON'T EVER EVER EVER EVER attempt to remove the skin (from peeling) yourself. Just let it be remove by itself (like the snake during skin regeneration) -- this is the time that it's best to stay indoors (you'll know what I mean when you get this stage) if it can't be avoided try to find a concealer or foundation that has perfect coverage, still expect that the flaking will be visible.
Removing make up: I use cleansing oil it's gentle and safe even when your skin is peeling
That's my practice when I was using this. Hope it helps ;)
Hi guys I would like to ask if its normal na parang may butlig ung face ko then sobrang kati nya nag pe peel siya but parang it looks like bad. Help me with this guys
First day kong gumamit ng maxi peel #1 kinakabahan ako supeer but what day ba sya mag pepeel na?thanks😊
I suffered severe acne breakouts during my thesis days. Sobrang dami na nakaka-stress at depressed. I lost my confidence big time. Hays. I used olay, ponds, garnier, eskinol, celeteque and other brands but no use. :'( So for my last option, I tried Maxi Peel products. A bit hesitant at first due to peeling pero dahil wala na din naman masisira I tried it. I used Exfoliant solution in #2 kahit severe ang acne condition ng cheeks ko. I also used Maxi Peel facial wash, moisturizer, sunblock & concealing cream. And fortunately, acne & pimple free na ko! :') I've been using Maxi Peel products for a year already. I use the toner as maintaining regimen. I never thought that 1 month use of maxi peel will make those blemishes gone. As in guys, as in. YUNG AKALA MONG WALA NG PAG-ASA. OMG. Maxi Peel is my life saver really. Thankful that I've been brave enough to try it. <3
I've been using Maxi Peel for 38 days now, taking 1-day breaks weekly, but I haven't experienced any signs of itchiness, redness, and peeling. There was very minor peeling on the skin above the sides of my lips, but it wasn't very noticeable. I feel like the product just isn't effective for me at all.
I use #1 and #2 alternately, using #2 about 20% of the time, but I use it more often now hoping it would have more of an effect. I don't really wanna use #3 cause it might be too harsh on my skin. In terms of the severity of my acne, it's not so bad, I'd say I have maybe less than 10 noticeable zits on my face (some with pus), and the rest would be blemishes, flat red acne scars, clogged pores, black and white heads and blotchy dull skin. I'm in my early twenties and have tried regularly going to my dermatologist for cleaning and diamond peels, natural treatments (e.g. fruit masks, raw honey, egg whites), and anti-acne products (e.g. Nature Republic Bee Venom line, etc.) before, but my bad skin has always stayed the same.
My nightly routine is:
Cetaphil > Wait 10 minutes > Maxi Peel > Wait 10-15 minutes > Nature Republic Aloe Vera Moisturizer
In the morning, I also use Cetaphil and apply sunscreen.
I've read numerous reviews and how-to's about Maxi Peel so I kinda have an idea about the pros and cons of the product, and the proper ways of using it, and I've taken all of these into account when I purchased the product.
I plan on buying the Maxi Peel moisturizer and sunscreen soon in the hopes that it might make the product more effective on me. I was really hoping to see results from this product, but even after a month, nothing has happened yet. I decided to continue using it until my 2 months are up, just in case the peeling starts a bit later.
Has anyone experienced the same problem? I'm hoping you guys can share your experiences with me. Thanks!
