Say I'm a late bloomer because I just recently discovered that Maxipeel has a face and body soap too called the Maxipeel Micro-Exfoliant Soap. I'm quite familiar with Maxipeel line because I have tried almost, if not all, of their face products. There are a few that I remember to have great liking to such as the exfoliant solution, moisturizing cream, and classic facial cleanser. I also used to love their facial wash and scrub! I remember myself repurchasing their facial scrub over and over way back college years. Just recently, during my random visit to the drugstore, I've looked for it everywhere but to no avail. Maybe they already discontinued the product? I don't know but I'm hoping that they just ran out of stock.
There are also a few that I think are so-so, say the sun protection, concealing and exfoliating creams. I also did not see much effect with the popular Maxipeel Zero Micro-Exfoliant Fluid either. Hmm, remind me to do a detailed review of each products, will you?
Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Soap is specifically designed to compliment exfoliating skin. It has Skin Renewal System that removes dead skin cells to reveal a blemish-free, smoother and whiter skin all over the body. This product is anti-acne (contains salicylic acid to prevent body breakouts such as those on back, shoulders and chest); smoothening (has micro-beads that gently massage your skin to remove dead skin cells); and whitening (evens out and whitens skin complexion in as fast as 5 to 7 days). Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Soap can be used for face and for body and is dermatologically-proven safe and effective.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Apply on skin during bathing and while washing the face. Leave for at least 1 minute. Wash and dry. You may apply other complementary products after washing with Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Soap. Apply Maxi-Peel Sun Protection Cream during day time for added protection. Apply Maxi-Peel Micro-Exfoliant Cream during night time to avoid too much dryness of the skin.
The product comes in a box and there you'll find all necessary information like claims, ingredients, manufacturing dates, etc. Scent is very fresh and mild. Not overpowering. Product is off-white in color and as you look closer, you'll see that it has micro beads which aids in skin exfoliation.
I personally didn't like using this soap on my face because I prefer a milder facial wash considering that by the time I was using this soap, I'm also using the exfoliant solution for my breakouts. Using both will be just too much. I'm not comfortable scrubbing my face with this soap just so I can feel the tiny beads. So I mainly use this product all over my body from neck downwards.
This soap reminds me of Belo Essentials Papaya Brightening + Clearing Soap in terms of texture and the feel of it on your hands. Although I'm not used to applying Maxipeel Micro-Exfoliant Soap on my face, I did like the feeling of it on my body. The scrubs made my skin firmer and it soft of relaxes my nerves too. If you are someone who's tired from work, going home and resting with a warm bath and exfoliating soap is quite helpful. The only downside is that as the soap gets smaller, the lesser the beads you'll feel and the lather will be not as rich. I think that's the case with most bar soaps. Anyway, this is inexpensive so repurchasing wouldn't be too much.
I didn't have that much 'backne' or pimples on my body but I do get them from time to time. Using this soap helped me dry them out faster and the blemishes lighter. You just have to religiously use the soap and let it stay for about a minute or two before your rinse it off. Fortunately, my skin doesn't develop any irritations or itchiness after several days of using. You just have to make sure to slather a great amount of body lotion after bath to help replenish lost moisture. That's the thing with most exfoliants - they could be drying.
Maxipeel Micro-Exfoliant Soap is able to soften and smoothen my skin all over. It also helps to look a lot clearer too. It leaves me squeaky clean after every wash and it feels refreshing. As for the whitening claims, my skin is somewhat fair in the first place so I'm just considering it as a maintenance product. It won't whiten your skin significantly or fully remove scars and blemishes, but you can expect that it will enhance the skin's natural radiance and glow. The secret is to use it consistently. Overall, not a bad product for the price and I'll surely consider buying it again in the near future.
