Skin type: Combination and acne-prone
Today’s review is about Alba Botanica Good and Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel. Chemical peels are very famous since they give a salon style treatment to the skin at home and that too at a very low cost. Previously, I had tried their fruit acid scrub, which proved to be amazing for my skin. So, this time I picked one more product from the skin care collection, and it is a “peel”. So, read on to know how it worked for my skin.
Price: $8.99/Rs 585
When toxin-retention prevents your skin from truly coming clean, it’s time to peel away the problem. Powered by 6% alpha hydroxy acids, the unique fruit acid detox fusion helps this fast-acting gel quickly eliminate dull surface cells, dissolve stubborn pollutants and release imbedded toxins. In just minutes, pores seem to disappear and skin looks bright, smooth and completely revitalized. No animal testing, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate or sodium myreth sulfate.

My Experience with Alba Botanica Good and Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel:
Packaging: Alba Botanica Good and Clean Pore Purifying Mini Peel comes in a bright blue tube packaging, which looks super funky and attractive. I really like Alba Botanica’s packaging since it is so beachy, colourful and fresh. The tube is fat yet is a palm-sized one. The cap is a flip-open type, which works fine and doesn’t cause any harm to my nails. The tube has all the details written over it. The price is good, considering that they are offering something very different and professional.
Consistency, smell and feel on the skin: The consistency is moderately thick and perfect as a gel. It glides smoothly on my face, and a little product is needed at once. The smell is just amazing. It smells like a fruity fusion of grapefruits, oranges, lemons and more. The scent is heavenly, and I enjoy it till the gel does its work on my skin. It does not irritate my skin, but yes, there is a tingling sensation, which occurs when we use vitamin C products. But, after rinsing it, there was no itching or so.
Results: The peel did show some great results instantly. Firstly, it made my pores look a lot smaller and reduced. It blurred my pores, and my skin looked very clear. Also, it made my skin look a lot brighter, fresher and even-toned. The dull layer was totally gone. My skin texture also felt a lot smoother, and it was not patchy or parched at all. The effects were really good, but they were temporary. After few days, my pores looked the same as they were before. So, it is a good option to use when you have some function for instant effects but, I wouldn’t prefer using so many strong chemicals on my skin all the time.
