Chemical Peels- What Are They? Are They Worth it?

Hello, lovelies! So I was lucky to have the chance to review this product- Yeouth Skincare Glycolic Acid 30% Gel Peel.

The first part of this blog post is my “first impression” meaning I tried the product out once and this is what I thought of it. The latter part of this post will be my second experience trying the product so I can give a more accurate review.

I want to start off by saying this: Chemical peels are not something to play around with, so make sure you follow all the instructions carefully! I first tested this product on my wrist, which is suggested to make sure there is no adverse reaction. I did not have any kind of reaction, which was a good sign.

The next step was trying it out on my face. I made sure to clean my face with my normal face wash first. Then it was time to add the peel. I will be honest, I was nervous about trying this product out since I’ve heard warnings about chemical peels- there are even warnings on the packaging of the product! I took it easy with the amount I added. I did have some mild irritation and itchiness on my chin where I had some breakouts, but otherwise, it was not really affecting my skin all that much and my skin is usually sensitive. The peel dried fast, so you want to make sure you don’t forget it’s on! I left on for 2 minutes. I did not notice a difference, so I decided to do it a second time (as per instructions) to see if anything else happened. I noticed a bit more redness as I was putting on the second layer so I decided to not push my luck by adding too much on, so I only added a bit more.

Overall, I did not notice much of a result after using this product. There is a chance that it was user error and I did something wrong, but I did my best to follow the instructions carefully. Maybe I didn’t use enough product? I’m not sure.

Please stay tuned because I will be trying this product again and updating this post!

Let me know what you think in the comments below. Do you have any tips for products like these? Should I continue posting first impressions and later updating posts with more usage for each product?
