Here at Pure Spa we love beauty bloggers! They’re a passionate bunch and are the go to when you want an honest review on a product that you like the look of to avoid splashing out on something that’s just not any good! To show our love we have yet another guest post from the lovely Charlene who blogs all things fashion and beauty related at Dainty Dresses – she tells us her thoughts on our Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel...
I bought this product after falling in love with the smell of it when it was used in the facial I was treated to at Pure Spa last month. It retails at £28 which is much more than I’d usually pay for a skincare product but my skin was looking and feeling amazing after my facial so I thought I’d give it a try.
Unlike the name suggests, the Papaya Enzyme Peel doesn’t peel. It’s a creamy product which dries in to your skin very quickly making it easy to continue getting dressed whilst waiting for it to work on your skin. After 10-15 minutes the product is barely visible on skin and is rinsed off with warm water to leave your skin feeling noticeably smoother. I use this every 2nd day and always find that my make up applies much nicer afterwards.
When I had my skin consultation at Pure Spa, I was told that my dry skin problem might be due to the fact that I didn’t exfoliate as part of my skincare routine. The reason I don’t like to use exfoliating products is because my skin is very sensitive and I suffer from redness which using an exfoliator only makes worse. This product was recommend to me because it is an exfoliator, it just doesn’t have a grainy consistency at all. Don’t ask me how that works, because I’m not quite sure, but it does! There has been a huge improvement in the condition of my skin since I started using this last month – it’s glowing!
It also smells amazing and makes me wish there was a scratch and sniff feature so that you could all smell it. It’s very fruity and tropical and the smell is left on your face all day long.
At £28 it is an expensive product but I’ve never used anything quite as good as it before. You only need a tiny amount so it will last for a long time but I would definitely consider purchasing this again… even for the smell alone! It’s definitely made me want to try some more Elemis products too.
