Earthen Skincare creates skincare products with ingredients that are safe as well as effective. Their “Instant Peel” is the flagship item and they sent us some over for review. This is a product that seems almost too good to be true. A simple cream that removes dead skin cells and ONLY dead skin cells in a minimal amount of time and with a minimal amount of effort. So you know we had to put it to the test!

Okay so tell us more!
Each package of Instant Peel contains 6 foil packets with the cream inside as well as some detailed instructions. Each box is $50 and is intended to be used as a natural alternative to glycolic peels as well as dermabrasion. What sold us is that even people with very sensitive skin (US) could use this product without irritation. There are some guidelines on how often you should use this product based on the type of skin you have; oily, combination, normal and sensitive to dry skin.

(used for anti-aging)

Peppermint Leaf Extract

(pH adjuster and buffering agent)
The entire ingredients list contains only 14 items. None of which we could directly point to the peeling action – so we’re guessing it’s a chemical reaction that occurs when this product comes into contact with the skin.
So the instructions are really simple. Steam your face for about 5 minutes prior to use. A really easy way to do this is in the shower but… we can’t really take our camera in the shower with us so we used a hot wet towel. If you’ve ever had a facial you know how amazing this is!
The next step is to apply a small amount to fingers and rub in a back and forth motion on the skin. Do this until peeling stops. Continue over entire face (avoiding delicate areas) and body. Rinse afterward and remove any remaining residue with soap and water. And that’s it! We love that the instructions are on each packet, in the event you take this on vacation with you or lose the box!
So our thoughts?
Upon inspection this looks like any ordinary, lightweight cream. But this stuff is amazing and kind of crazy!
This is the first area we used the peel on first. It works amazingly fast and we managed to finish our entire face in less than 5 minutes. So with the steaming
a total of 10 minutes! We didn’t realize how dry our skin really was and how much dead skin was on there!
We were left with soft and smooth skin that was super refreshed. This is definitely a great product to use in your regular routine for a great exfoliation particularly if you are prone to redness or sensitivity!
