A wonderful treatment for your skin.
At first I was scared to use the AHA peel because the thought of skin peels scares me but I found this Olay Vitamin C resurfacing treatment mask and AHA Peel Serum activator surprisingly gentle.
I have somewhat sensitive skin and I didn't have any kind of reaction either.
I didn't find the mask to have a strong scent either which is always pleasant as I find products with strong scent not pleasant to use.
I found my skin feeling lovely, soft and clear after using this product.
I would definitely recommend people looking for a a great peel and mask that even someone with sensitive skin can use to achieve lovely glowing skin.
I found this product good to use This is a two part product: the first part is a gel-based vitamin C face mask and scrub, and the second part is an AHA serum that you apply after. The instructions tell you to massage the mask/scrub into skin for one minute, then apply the serum, and continue massaging another minute. You then rinse with warm water. When the two products work together and create a a slight foaming and warming effect, which was not uncomfortable or unpleasant.. I liked that it contains ascorbic acid and I liked the appearance of my skin after using it. The scent was fresh and I did not find it offensive. I would definitely consider re-purchasing.
This was the first time I've tried a aha product so I was really excited to see the results. I loved the products ease of use and the instructions were easy to read and to follow. The step one vitamin c mask smells great and feels nice, although i needed a little bit more than recommended amount to cover my whole face. The step 2 activator is easy to apply and really does feel warm and you can really feel it working to smooth the skin, after rinsing my face felt very smooth, clean and fresh. I used it once a week for and have noticed a more smooth skin and a little less pigmentation around my chin. I would definitely recommend this product
Ok I was really surprised by the results of this combination! I'll admit, I was at first sceptical of a 2 step process...how much better could it be than a general facial scrub? The results did not lie!!!
I started by washing my face and drying it completely. I then added a good amount of the vitamin C mask (I'd say about the size of a 50 cent coin). At first, it was really warm when I spread it evenly across my face. It smells like orange juice which was a plus for me! The granules feel a little like sugar but not as coarse. I massaged it in for one minute, which already felt it had done its job!
Then, I followed with the activating serum and wow! It foamed slightly and almost instantly dissolved the granules. I continued to massage for a minute and washed my face thoroughly.
Now when I say my skin was clean, I mean sparking!! I had some dry skin around my forehead and chin that was immediately exfoliated. Even the bumpy texture of some blemishes under the skin were gone. My skin has been smooth for days following! This is the ultimate facial for me, and I will not hesitate to continue with this combo.
I've not had any breakouts or skin issues from using this. My skin is growing! I highly recommend this if you are in need of a deep skin treatment to get rid of impurities and dead skin. To be completely honest, I've had facials that didn't give me the results that this did!
Nice but be careful if you have sensitive skin
This product definitely makes you feel like you are having a luxury treatment at home, your skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. The only reason I didn't give it 5-Stars is because it did make my skin pretty pink afterwards and it did also sting a bit, so it's not the best product to use right before a big event if you have sensitive skin. I would recommend using it the night before a party or event so that your skin has time to recover. Not something I would use in the morning! Otherwise, it definitely made my skin feel great afterwards and quite bright as well.
First timer of useing a AHA peel serum
This was my first time useing an aha peel serum and I loved it to be honest it was super interesting applying the 1st mask and the second made it not so scrubby I really enjoy it and was something so different very easy to use instructions tell you how to do it and it’s super easy had no skin issues while useing it didn’t burn or hurt me at all so it’s a win. Loved the end result I felt my skin was brighter the dead skin was removed any oil I had was removed felt clean and very pleasant i found it had little to no smell but I didn’t smell it while I was putting it on to me it might of had a orange smell but it did have vitamin c and most of them products smell like lemon, or orange love the bottle and the container it comes in very good design as it’s re useable and grate for in the go or if your on a holiday.
Luscious facial treatment
I received this product to trial as part of the Reviewcrew. I was quite excited/ nervous to trial this product as it was my first time using an AHA resurfacing peel, it actually wasn’t even something I’d even heard of before so I was quite intrigued. The box came with 2 parts, Step 1, the resurfacing mask and Step 2, the AHA Peel Activator. When I opened Step 1, I could already tell from it’s gritty texture that it would be a good exfoliant, not to mention it smelled delicious, it smelled like Pine Orange Juice to me, which just feels like summer. Step 2 has a really soft orangey fragrance too, paired with the quite thick, rich texture. Step 1 felt great massaging that into my face on its own, then when you add step 2 I could feel it start to gently warm my skin as white foam appeared. Overall, I felt like this was a very luscious process, that left my skin glowing. It will definitely be something that I continue to use, especially in these warmer months when my pores get that little more clogged, I think the stronger exfoliation will help. I probably wouldn’t use it more than once a week just because it was quite rough, and I think the dry patches already on my face might flare up even more. But I am definitely interested to see how prolonged use will help with diminishing the appearance of fine lines, plus I have some old pimple scars that I think it might actually be helping to fade too! My only niggle is the price, I would probably keep my eye out for if this popped up when they have half price sales.
Amazing!! Would highly recommend.
This product was honestly an absolute game changer! I really enjoyed using this product the scrub was amazing, the roughness of the scrub meant that it really gave my face a great scrub, the AHA ingredient made my skin feel amazing after it! My skin has not felt this great! It is also time efficient, it doesn’t take too long to put the mask on and to wash off. I didn’t even have to leave it on for too long either. Perfect for my busy schedule.could easily fit it in between shifts at the hospital. Another great thing I found was that I wear a mask every day at work and it has honestly made my skin feel absolutely amazing and I haven’t felt this in a long time!
Great luxury product
Absolutely loved this product, it made my skin feel fresh and smooth. The two steps made for a luxury spa feel, and noticeably improved the texture and look of my skin.
I cleansed my skin, applied the first step, waited and applied the second step. I felt a gentle warming but no sensitivity. After washing it off, I applied my usual moisturiser, and my skin was much brighter with a clearer texture.
I love the smell and feel of the product, it's a pleasure to use with real results.
I definitely would buy again and include it as part of my regular beauty routine.
A peel you'll want
Absolutely obsessed with this dynamite duo. It’s incredibly easy to use, and a little goes a long way. I have used similar much more expensive products before, and Olay Masks rivals most of them.
I didn't mind the light orange scent of step 1, and then the unusual, but somehow pleasant warming sensation of step 2. (Any residue left after step 2 I rinsed away with water quite easily).
My skin was left soft and glowing after application of the 2 steps, so much so that I wish I could use it daily. I wouldn't recommend using it more than a couple of times a week as I think my skin needed time between applications. Still, it gives me something to look forward to every few days. Unlike other products, I also didn’t get the annoying 2nd day pimples the day after the exfoliating was done.
This is definitely going on my Christmas wish list.
Clean, smooth and refreshing
The first product that you apply feels rough and really feels like it is getting deep into the pours to remove and dirt and greasy ness throughout the day. It was easy to apply and the smell of this product is so nice.
The second application has a warm sensation that goes on smooth over the rough. My skin didn’t break out in a red rash that some products tend to do. My skin felt clean but didn’t feel like it left your skin dry like some face masks. I would highly recommend this product and I will be buying again
Big fan - will continue to use
Really pleased with this product. Love the scent of the exfoliating scrub (however beware the crystals are quite rough so be gentle and build your way up to a tolerable level), feels quite high end and premium. Make sure to read the instructions beforehand so you’re prepared for the heating sensation when you apply step 2 and start to dissolve the crystals.
Taking away one star for how fiddly the process is but can also appreciate that some people may like this as it’s a real experience and feels like you’re at a day spa (maybe if you can convince hubby to do it for you while you lay back and relax!)
I wouldn’t say I noticed any drastic transformation in my skin but I would say that I felt it looked clearer and brighter with slightly less enlarged gunky pores, however I only used this for 2 weeks so far so will continue to use it and expect to see my skin improve further!
Cleaner and tighter skin
I have been using these two Olay products for the last two weeks and so far I’m loving them. My skin seems cleaner, tighter and more radiant. I am finding them very simple and quick to use, especially for tired and time poor mothers. I will definitely buy these products again and recommend them to others.
My skin feels soft and my pores are less noticeable. I haven’t had any outbreaks so far and I’m finding my cheeks are not as red as they often get.
I loved the way both products worked together so simply and they have a pleasant fragrance.
I really enjoyed using this product.
The whole process makes it quite special, almost like your own day spa experience.
It's easy to use and a quick step in your skincare routine as it's all done in under five minutes.
The first step is lightly massaging your skin with the vitamin c exfoliator. You have to be very gentle as is it quite gritty. So don't over scrub otherwise you will risk damaging your skin!
The second step involves adding on the AHA activator. You need a good amount to dissolve the particles from the vitamin c exfoliator. It warms up your skin and feels very gentle.
Once you rinse it all out, the skin feels soft. No tingly feeling, no redness or dryness.
The ingredients of this peel are great. Vitamin C isn't a stable ingredient so the fact that there is enough for eight weeks of treatment is a good thing. AHAs are great to even out skin tone but if you have sensitive skin, go slow and don't exfoliate too much.
I didn't notice a huge improvement in my skin, apart from the softness after using the mask. My skin is very oily and textured so I think I will need to use it a little longer to see a bigger improvement.
I do recommend this product if you are looking to try a home peel that is not going to damage your skin and has good quality ingredients in it.
Very Intense Exfoliation
I have combination oily skin that is quite textured and can be quite reactive to products, and this resurfacing peel surprised me in a good way. I am not new to salon strength peels and they can be rather intense, sometimes to the point of painful to my reactive skin. This peel was simple to follow even with its 2 step application, when applying the serum activator it did tingle quite a lot for me but it stopped quite quickly and didn't leave any lasting irritation after rinsing the product from the skin.
My skin did feel rather stripped after rinsing though, so I felt the need to apply a rich serum and moisturiser after. As I have quite oily skin, I wasn't expecting this and I think if your skin leans more dry it is something to be aware of.
My skin felt very very smooth after the treatment and it effectively removed any flaky skin patches I had on my face, and it stayed smooth in the days after the treatment with no obvious signs of irritation or provoking breakouts.
The price is quite high for only a few weeks of applications, however as its olay, it will go on sale quite often and make it more cost effective.
I would definitely recommend to family and friends who are after an intense exfoliation.
I used this product 4 times and I can already feel the difference. My skin feels so smooth and lovely. Usually after I use any mask my skin dries out. But this product gave my skin a gentle touch.
There are 2 steps involved. I took a tiny amount of it and rubbed over my face. This helped in exfoliating. Then in second step I applied the liquid. It gives you the most satisfying finish with a refreshing citrus smell.
Very generous size.
Easy to use.
2 processes so little bit time consuming.
I would want to use this product on regular basis. Also I want to recommend it to my family and friends.
I was a big fan of this two step process facial mask although not something I would normally buy I was totally into this trial.
Stage one is a fine gritty scrub which you massage for a minute to the face and neck area. It has an amazing citrus scent which is heavenly but actually not harsh on the skin.
Stage two is the activator which when applied to the same areas as the mask turns the scrub white and warms up the mask. Your face does feel warm while you rub this on so not to be alarmed. Massage the applicator into the mask for a minute then rinse off.
I was honestly surprised to see how smooth and glowey my skin was after just one use of this product. I have definitely kept up the regime of using this product twice a week.
I loved the scen t upon opening this box It's very moisturising and adding liquid really makes it feel like it's working.I found this a bit messy to use but none the less felt like the acting agent was really benefiting my skin, leaving it smooth and fresh.Easy to follow instructionsI would recommend based on using this and the feeling of skin afterwards, feeling fresh, fab and well moisturised. A great duo product with a tinlgy sensation knowing the activating product is working on your skin, hydrated and smooth with no aggravations
Olay is like that trusted best friend you sometimes don’t see for years but never lets you down when you catch up again!
I usually think of older women when I see ‘peel’ but I am very pleasantly revisiting that opinion.
This 2 step process is so simply done stepping out of the shower, apply the mask as per directions, apply the serum (close eyes for as close to a facial experience a mum gets) and enjoy the warm foam that the 2 combined formulas create.
The after affects have been so surprising, my skin tone is far more even, my skin is clearer with fewer blemishes coming through & I adore it! I’m on the bandwagon!
This is great for my busy mum of 3, 30 year old skin!
So wow this product is different from the usual masks I use!
I applied the treatment mask on cleansed dry skin, it smells like fresh orange (so good) and it has small crystals in the mask. You apply the mask and lightly massage it into the skin.
For my 40-year-old skin, I found the mask quite coarse. Anyway, the next step is to add the AHA peel serum on top of the mask and massage in until the crystals disappear and a white foam appears.
It feels quite warm when it goes on and I found massaging the crystals a bit hard on my skin.
I then removed the mask with a warm face washer, my skin felt clean and I did have some dry flakes which the mask removed.
Although my face was red after, after half an hour that went away.
Overall a good mask and I would use again, it does a great job of exfoliating
