On one of my most recent blogs, I've mentioned that I've tried a lot of Maxi-Peel products in the past but never got the chance to write about them. I'm not really sure why, I even checked my previous blogs but I couldn't find that many reviews featuring products from this particular brand. My bad! Let me make it up to you. I even bought some sample sachets and a bottle of the Maxi-Peel Facial Cleanser Classic. I've been using it for the last two weeks since I just finished exfoliating with their exfoliant solution. I thought that it might be best to use maintenance products from the same brand to enhance the results.
Maxi-peel Facial Cleanser Classic has deep cleansing and lightening properties that lifts away deep-seated dirt and anti-acne and smoothening properties that remove blackheads and whiteheads. It is also vitamin-enriched with Vitamins B3, B5, B6, C and E.
The product comes in a typical plastic bottle and what I really appreciate is the transparency of the brand. On the back part of the bottle, you'll see the claims, usage, ingredients, and manufacturer information. On the rear part are the manufacturing and expiry dates.
SCENT, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
The product has a refreshing scent though the smell of alcohol is quite there too. It's on the upper part of the ingredient list so that means there's a significant amount of it. I know some would find it alarming because alcohol is drying and some would even experience adverse reaction (like worse acne breakouts) from products infused with alcohol. In my case, my skin isn't that sensitive to alcohol-based products and I can easily combat the dryness by using hydrating products that works well for me. I'm saying this as early as now so you can skip reading if ýou're allergic to skincare with alcohol.
This cleanser is water-like and because of the presence of alcohol, this dry very fast and is easily absorbed by the skin without any oily or sticky residue. I don't have problem with cleansers like this, in fact, it's quite helpful for me with oily skin because it makes the product weightless and it also seems like my skin absorbs easily whatever I put on next. But then again, alcohol are scientifically-proven to be more damaging than helpful to the skin. I'm just blessed I guess because this cleanser didn't cause my skin to flare up and it also didn't make my skin reject other skincare products that I'm using.
It is advisable to use this cleanser twice a day meaning in the morning and at night ideally after first-step cleansing with a mild facial wash. I like the fact that it is able to clean up and remove excess oil and dirt from the pores as you can tell on the cotton pad. It leaves skin squeaky clean and more refreshed due to its cooling formula. Again, this cleanser didn't burn up my skin and I also didn't experience acne breakouts during the time that I was using it from years ago and even for the past two weeks.
This product also claims to lighten the skin but I have to say that it didn't significantly contribute to the improvement of my skin tone but I'm happy to say that it helped make my skin looks clearer. The only thing I really didn't like is that how my skin feels a little tight and dry so I have to really use hydrating products afterwards.
If you are looking for budget-friendly cleansers, this is something you can buy very conveniently. I just wouldn't recommend it to those with sensitive and dry skin types because of the ingredient list/formulation. And because I'm always on the chase for new products, I don't think I'd repurchase this cleanser anytime sooner.
