Today I’m reviewing the Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive Exfoliating Mask that came in my November Petit Vour box. [info in italics taken from the Petit Vour website]
Reveal a brighter complexion with this potent alpha and beta hydroxy acid mask that delivers spa-grade exfoliation, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark spots and discoloration, for optimum age-defying results.
designed for all skin types (except sensitive skin), 20’s and up and is effective for helping uneven skin tone and texture. NOTE: The Juice Beauty GREEN APPLE® Brightening Collection is not designed for very sensitive or rosacea skin due to the alpha/beta hydroxy fruit acids.
This acid peel / mask is not recommended for sensitive skin, but I did a patch test (two actually), one on my wrist, and when that showed no signs of reaction, I did a second test on my neck before trying it out on my face. I can safely say that my sensitive skin CAN tolerate this peel / exfoliating mask! There is some very minor tingle, but within what I would consider to be a safe amount, and my skin is a little pink, but it fades back to normal quite quickly after using.
All in all, I like this one. It helps to brighten and even out skintone, and can help with fine lines.
However, I will caution you if you sensitive skin, or have never used alpha or beta hydroxy acid, to please do a patch test before trying on your face. My skin has reacted badly to some acid type peels in the past – so please be careful!
Have you tried this exfoliating peel mask? Have you ever reacted to a peel type mask?

Today I have a little review of the sample sized Glycolic Fix Daily Cleansing Pads by Nip + Fab. I used my Ipsy GlamBag points to get this sample. This is my first time using anything from Nip + Fab.
Here’s what it says on the website:
Unveil younger-looking skin with our innovative Glycolic Fix. 60 radiance-boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid (2.8%) retexture + resurface skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone. This moisturising formula with hyaluronic acid + soothing blue daisy helps to reveal brighter + smoother looking skin.
I am always a little nervous when it comes to using exfoliating acid products since my skin is so sensitive. To be honest, I really was expecting a tingle or burn, but thankfully these exfoliating glycolic acid pads are gentle. My skin feels so smooth after using!
However, I do find that my skin feels a little sticky immediately after using them, but that feeling goes away after a little while. I think that the hyaluronic acid and blue daisy are what helps calm the skin and keep it from irritating the skin. Sadly, because it is a sample size (10 pads), I don’t have a verdict on longer usage. I think that I will most likely purchase a full size of this one to try out for a longer period of time.
Have you tried anything from Nip + Fab? What do you recommend?
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day! ❤

Today I’m reviewing the Revitalizing Facial Scrub from Sukin. I find that a lot of exfoliating facial scrubs to be too harsh for my sensitive skin.
Here’s what is says on the website:
This gentle cleanser uses non-abrasive, micro particles of bamboo extract and ground walnut shells to remove dirt and impurities leaving clean, radiant skin.
Aloe vera and chamomile work to soothe skin and rose hip, jojoba and sesame replenish and protect the skin’s moisture barrier.
I read several reviews in which people complained that it wasn’t “scrubby” enough. The product very clearly states that it is GENTLE and NON-ABRASIVE, and people are surprised?
For my sensitive skin, this creamy facial scrub is both soothing and gently exfoliating. You really do not need a rough scrub, all that does is damage your skin. I think that all skin types could use this facial scrub, but they do make one specifically targeted for oily skins. My skin feels smooth and looks radiant when I use this.
Water (Aqua), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Extract (Bamboo), Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Glycerin, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil (Rose Hip), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract (Chamomile), Arctium Lappa Root Extract (Burdock), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Vanillin, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Linalool,* Limonene.* *Natural component of essential oils.
The Revitalizing Facial Scrub has that mild “Sukin” scent that I just love – tangerine, mandarin, lavender, vanilla. Another great one from Sukin!
Have you tried this facial scrub? What is your favourite facial scrub?
