IMBB Sponsored Product Review
I am very happy to review my second IMBB sponsored product. IMBB is a very important part of my life which I cherish a lot and with so many creative people and love around, I feel blessed to be a part of this beautiful blog.
What is an Over-Night Peel?
An overnight peel is a potion that helps exfoliate away dead surface skin cells and other impurities of the skin. It increases the cell turnover for a beautiful and younger looking skin. It helps with all the major concerns of ageing like enlarged pores, pigmentation, fine lines. Well, we all are aware what are those? It can be chemical based and biological based. Of course chemical-based peels can be harsh on skin and sensitive skin beauties should stay away from them. Also, chemical peels should be done under a guidance of a dermatologist while on the other hand biological peels are safe for any skin type and can be done easily.
Stimulates skin’s biological exfoliation process for noticeably smoother, more even, and vibrant skin by morning. Safe, gentle, effective exfoliation. With 10% HEPES, this unique formula performs as well as a potent, leave-on 10% glycolic acid chemical peel. Recommended if your skin texture appears dull and ruddy; your skin is sensitive to chemical treatments yet requires additional exfoliation; your skin demonstrates free-radical and photo-damage; or dark spots and/or hyper-pigmentation are visible on skin.
Rs. 3200 for 50 ml.
I love the packaging. It is very convenient pump style heavy glass bottle that will not break if it slips. The product is intact and not contaminated in such packaging. It can be used for long and can give consistent results. I find it very convenient to pump out the required quantity. Also, I can easily locate it at my dresser and remember to use. It has that “Old-Skool” charm which I like.

My Experience with Kiehl’s Over Night Biological Peel:
I was overjoyed to pick this peel from the list as I have never tried peels and was excited to try this. As it is a biological peel and has no chemicals, I knew it will not harm my skin. I used it the very first day I got it and applied a thin layer on my face and it took ages to dry. Yes!! it took three hours to dry completely and I was awake till 1 AM just waiting for it to dry so that I can sleep like a monkey on my bed, but I do think that in excitement, I applied a lot and that is why it took that long, but forget it. The next morning my skin felt soft, supple and completely hydrated. In winters, it is such a joy to wake up to a fully moisturized, soft skin.
I used it again the next night and this time, I applied less than the first day, but again, it took almost three hours to dry. Even though I did notice the glow on my face, but the time it takes to dry is ridiculous and I think this is a major downside of this peel. On the whole, this peel gives you more smoother and even skin, but I have stopped using it at night because I just can’t sleep with this on my face. It feels as if one has applied a very thin layer of jelly on your face that refuses to dry. Girls, I am warning you, it is seriously a task to apply this stuff and wait for it to dry. Now, I have started using this as a face mask, like if I know I have to sit in front of the computer for long or stay at home, on those days, I put it on my face and forget about it and wash it in the evening if I feel like going out. As far as benefits of this peel are concerned, I am happy with the results as it effectively exfoliates my facial skin and makes it smoother and vibrant without any over the top chemical ingredients. I did see an improvement in dark spots and discoloration due to sun exposure. Fine facial lines are the major concern for ageing skin and there is no noticeable result in that as of now.
Pros of Kiehl’s Over Night Biological Peel:
- Smoother and vibrant skin.
- Better than a chemical peel.
- Sturdy packaging.
- No fragrance.
- Reduction in dark spots.
- Skin is fully moisturized and supple.
- Easy exfoliation.
Cons of Kiehl’s Over Night Biological Peel:
- Takes ages to dry.
- Nothing exceptional.
Would I Repurchase Kiehl’s Over-Night Biological Peel?
The results of this peel are at par with any other good night cream available in the market these days, as I said nothing exceptional. Nobody has so much time to put on a face mask or for that matter in this case a biological peel for hours when the results can be easily achieved with a night cream or a good CTM regime. So, no I will not be repurchasing it. I want to keep things simple in my beauty regime.
