Time flies so swiftly. Checking my previous posts, I found out that the last time I posted a blog was about a week ago. Hmf. April's almost over and it seems like I'm still into procrastinating. Staying at home is becoming unbearably boring and the only thing that's keeping me sane right now are K-dramas. I even signed up for my own account in Netflix hoho. I was only sponging off on my friend's account previously LOL. Going back, today's blog will be a continuation of our Maxi-Peel review series.
Maxi-Peel Facial Wash is an anti-bacterial and deep cleansing wash which contains micro beads that lifts away deep-seated dirt and excess oil. It also helps dry up and remove pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. Maxi-Peel Facial Wash is vitamin enriched with Vitamins B3, B5, and E.
Maxi-Peel Facial Wash have acids and chemicals that are quite alarming especially for sensitive skin. However, there are also notable ones that are beneficial to problematic skin types. There are potent ingredients for anti-aging and brightening (Niacinamide, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate or Vitamin E), and also for fighting acne (Salicylic Acid). Oh, at the moment, my skin is loving Niacinamide!
Apart from these, Maxi-Peel Facial Wash is paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free and EU allergen-free.
Like I've mentioned on my previous Maxi-Peel blogs, I used to love the scrub variant. I couldn't find any when I went to the drugstore so I have to settle to the original one. I've been using both simultaneously before anyway. I think the only difference between the two are the presence of fine, gentle scrubs.
Maxi-Peel Facial Wash comes in sachet packs and tiny tubes which is way more travel-friendly since those are leak-proof. I couldn't travel this quarantine season anyway so what's the use. I appreciate that all the necessary information are printed at the back of the sachets so no need for me to google or something.
SCENT, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
This product has a subtle cooling fresh scent which is not offensive to sensitive noses. Turns out I like it.
The consistency and the look of the product is very typical to foam cleansers. It’s kind of thick and lathers richly when applied on wet skin but rinses well without any residue. Honestly, you don’t need a lot for the whole face. A sachet could last more or less two weeks (twice application per day).
This is a facial wash that has the tendency to dry out your skin so you may not want to soak your skin for too long. It leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean and a bit tight afterward that it may crave for some moisture. I would say that those with dry/sensitive skin should use it sparingly.
This product is very cooling to the skin. As I have mentioned, it’s a bit drying so using it on peeling skin is a no-no for me. My skin was sore and itchy when I tried to use it together with the Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Solution. It became red and blotchy all over. It would be best to use this product on normal days for maintenance.
So far, I would say that it really does well in brightening the skin and make it appear clearer. This is with regular use of course. It took me about 4 sachets or so to notice an effect - my skin is more glowing and blemishes are less noticeable. The time I spent with it was not so bad at all considering the price I paid for.
So if you are looking for beauty products that are budget-friendly, this should be one of your options. I would consider using it again someday as this didn’t block my pores or break me out. It would be best to use it together with other Maxi-Peel products for maximum effect.
