I have just had a Neostrata Retinol peel

Updated: Oct 24, 2022

It's finally here! Retinol in a peel ...

I would say I'm a bit of a nerd when it comes to peels, I love the way they clean your skin, I mean REALLY clean your skin!

My first peel was about 15 years ago and it was so bad, it put me off for a number of years, it was both slow, painful and my skin was on fire.

Safe to say I lasted around 2 minutes with it on my face before caving in and asking very loudly, "take it off now". I now know it was a TCA (trichloroacetic acid) peel and it was "pokey".

Yes my skin flaked off in sheets to reveal baby soft smooth skin, but I looked like I had a lace veil on for a day or two.

Fast forward 10 years and I am now an avid peeler! if there is such a word. My choice of peel has always been Enerpeel Pyruvic Acid as it's helped enormously with my melasma.

That is, until I heard about Neostrata's Pro-system Retinol peel about 6 months ago for the first time.

I tried out the peel a few days ago, no skin prep and was really impressed how instantly it began to make my skin feel clean, despite leaving it on for 8 hours before washing it off with water in the pleasure of your own home.

I removed the peel at 8 hours on the dot with warm water and a face cloth, then applied my usual moisturiser (currently using AllSkinMed's Replenishing Cream) and went to bed.

By morning my skin had its glow, still felt clean and a little tight.

By day 3 I had some flaking dry skin around my mouth and jawline and a little more on my forehead.

At day 5, my skin hit it's peak, clearer skin with an even skin tone, reduced poresize, and less visible lines (I'm over due my botox injections!) and over the moon at the results so far.

I'm continuing with another 2 peels, spaced a month apart, and can't wait to see the results.

Neostrata Pro-System Retinol Peels are available at Rejuvenate Face Clinic 49 Essenden Road, St Leonards, TN34 0NN.
