Not for me this one! If you've read any of my previous reviews you'll know I'm a massive Guinot fan, to the point of obsession. This however was disappointing and actually quite uncomfortable to use.
It's a gel formulation mask which you smooth over the skin and leave for 15 minutes, so far so good. It works with Fruit Acids/AHA Complex (Lemon, Orange, Cranberries, Sugar Cane and Maple) to exfoilate without using the usual grainy creams/lotions.
When ready to remove, you can actually peel the mask off, quite good fun at first but I have quite sensitive skin and found it a little uncomfortable. To finish rinse off with lotion.
Even after rinsing, I found I was still finding bits to peel off hours later, not a good look.
To be fair, I gave the rest of the tube to my husband and he thought it was great. Maybe this one's just not for me.
If you looking for a gentle exfoilator which does'nt use grains, try the gommage biologique. That's brilliant, I'll review it next.
