Eminence Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel

Vegan Exfoliating Peel for Pigmentation.

Pigmentation is something I suffer from and that I've always got to keep on top of as any little spot leaves pigmentation but finding alternative methods that are safe and legal can be a pain. Eminence Organic Skincare have a gluten & nut free and vegan product that might be my answer. "A results-oriented peel solution with cotton round pads that reduces the look of uneven pigmentation. Lactic and mandelic acids gently exfoliate dead skin cells while licorice root and our Natural Hydroquinone Alternative from African potato and tara tree brighten the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation."
I've long heard and read that licorice is good for pigmentation, I've never found a way to incorporate it into a D.I.Y skincare routine but alas this exfoliating peel has it already. I was excited to try it as I have a fair bit of pigmentation lurking around, nothing too bad. I was using the peel on my face, it started to look clearer, a little more even until I scratched the skin in between my eyebrows and disturbed skin got ripped by my nails - way to go! After cleaning the wound, it needed time to heal & I didn't want to use this peel on a fresh wound but as it started to heal up, it was the perfect time to start to really see how this works.

The Product
Key Ingredients:
Licorice Root: promotes skin elasticity, brightens the appearance of pigmentation, fights the look of wrinkles
Daisy Blossom: cleans skin, brightens the appearance of pigmentation.
Lactic Acid: exfoliates, accelerates removal of dead skin cells
Natural Hydroquinone Alternative: a natural brightening agent made with African potato and tara tree for a smooth, radiant looking complexion
Azelaic Acid: antioxidant, reduces the look of inflammation
Baobab: antioxidant, brightens and tones the skin, moisturizes, reduces the look of inflammation
Mandelic Acid: gently exfoliates, effective at treating the look of fine lines and redness
Clary Sage Oil: calming; balances oil production

It's a 50 ml tub with a pump top, I've never had a product like it before, the circle in the middle dispenses the product straight onto the cotton pads supplied. Simply lay the pad on top and it's a pretty accurate fit and pump a couple times and voila. No spillage, no excess product, just simple.

The 35 cotton pads that are supplied are handy, they have two different sides - one side is soft & quilted for sensitive skin and the other side which is more of a waffle knit is for deeper exfoliation - where do I get these for future use Eminence? It is noted that this can be used daily if there is no sensitivity when used.

My Experience
Once I've cleansed my skin, I prefer to use this at night, just in case there's any reaction/sensitivity - I've not experienced any. I use two pumps onto the pad and depending on where on my skin I'm gliding this over, I switch sides on the pads, some days I may use one side all over, others the other and with circular motions apply to the skin. It's just going off my personal judgement on what my skin needs and can tolerate. There's no chemical smell, it smells a little sweet and tolerable, I like the smell, it's pretty calming. I feel no stinging but the skin does feel clean and dry (it needs moisture!!) I don't think it's down to the peel, it needs moisture!! It dries quickly, it's to be left on - not to be washed off - and your skin routine continued, for me that's serum, cream and oil - beauty sleep.
The mark incident happened about the 6th of February, it healed quickly but the mark was inevitable. Over the fortnight I randomly took pictures after doing my skincare routine, it's doing nicely lightening up and the skin itself hasn't changed in texture making me feel more confident within the product. As I previously said I go by my skins judgement, sometimes it needs a rest from things this can be used up to 3 times a week, I've actually been using it every other day. You also want to use SPF which you should be anyway people *wags finger* as the skin will be more delicate to sun.

It may be pricy at £55 for 50ml but with it having no harmful ingredients and also vegan, it's not bad. I've got more hopes for this product being nearly 3 weeks and good improvement, it's a highly recommended from me.
