The past few days were all about movies and series and today, I just finished watching How To Train Your Dragon 1-3. I'm not really into animation but I kind of enjoy watching them LOL. I think the dragons are rather cute than scary, most especially Toothless! Anyway, here's the continuation of Maxi-Peel review series I have thought of doing this quarantine season. Today, I'm going to share a quick review of Maxi-Peel Moisturizing Cream.
Again, this isn't the first time I tried this product. Maxi-Peel has been around for years and I don't think anyone who's beauty-obsessed will find Maxi-Peel an alien brand. I was in college the first time I've tried this and though that was years ago, I don't think they reformulated this cream. One thing for sure is, it has became much more cost-efficient since they made the product bigger with just the same price tag. With only P14, you get to last it for about a week or so.
Maxi-Peel Moisturizing Cream is a non-greasy, quick absorbing cream that provides maximum moisture to keep skin soft, smooth and supple. It helps hide visible effects of exfoliation such as flakiness and dryness. Use nightly to provide skin hydration and moisture.
SCENT, CONSISTENCY AND EASE OF APPLICATION
This product has a subtle floral-like scent which I like. It's not offensive at all even for sensitive noses. The cream is white in color and despite the slightly thick formulation, it absorbs easily without any stickiness. It's soft and silky, almost silicon-y when applied. This is probably because of the presence of Dimethicone. It looks matte as well but skin feels highly moisturized underneath. I tried it with a foundation and so far, it did not roll and pill. My foundation looks okay too.
My only concern is that it makes my skin warm up faster and gets super oily after a few hours. Because of too much oil, my base makeup cakes and moves around. This is why I wouldn't want to use it as a moisturizer if I will be using makeup. On its own, it's a good product to use n a daily basis to moisturize the non-problematic skin.
I have tried this product when my skin is peeling in the hope of hiding the dry patches and dead skins. However, not only this product stings so much, it also heightened the look of the peeling skin and I don't get it. I mean it was advised to use with the exfoliant solution but I don't find them to be a great duo. Again, I would think that you have to use it on its own when you're skin is done peeling and is already on the healing stage.
Despite all that, I appreciate Maxi-Peel Moisturizing Cream and I really like the texture of the cream and how it was formulated. I like how it glides well on the skin. Though it makes me oil up more, I could easily fix that with a mattifying powder. It's really hot and humid anyway. I might use this again on colder days.
I like how it get rids of dry and taut feeling so it's probably best for those with dry skin. The best thing is that it doesn't clog my pores or cause breakouts when I use it years back and even just recently. I just hope that it comes with a high-strength sun protection so it would be a nice alternative cheap moisturizer.
If you have sensitive skin, better do a patch test first. Please know that it has ingredients that may clog the pores or may cause adverse reactions. Watch out for the Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Isopropyl Myristate, Citric Acid, Dimethicone, Triethanolamine, Mineral Oil and Fragrance. If you had any bad experience with the aforementioned ingredients, be more cautious and consult your dermatologist.
