My red days is synonymous to bad skin days. I am having breakouts recently and I really hope that this product won't disappoint. Me and my sister is an avid user of Maxi-Peel (the astringent version) I swear that it worked and we had pretty good skin for a while. The bad thing is that, there is a rest period due to the strong formula of Maxi-Peel. During the rest period our skin is bad. We also noticed that our skin easily turns red and can be darker looking than our normal skin tone. That is the good and the bad of Maxi-Peel. Anyway here comes Maxi-Peel Zero right when we need it.
What is it?
Maxi-Peel Zero is:
- Micro Exfoliant Liquid
- Anti acne
- Cleanses without redness
- Exfoliates without peeling
It also helps lighten discoloration of the skin, such as sun spots, age spots, acne marks and blemishes. Freckles/Pekas will improve or lighten as you continue the use of Maxi–Peel Zero Micro-Exfoliant Fluid. For deep acne scars and warts, best to consult a dermatologist.
Based from Maxi-Peel's fb page, if you are currently using Maxi-Peel Exfoliant Solution and wanted to shift to Maxi-Peel Zero Fluid, it is recommended to observe 5-7 days rest period before shifting.
Maxi-Peel Zero is marketed to act like a normal cleanser. Basically I use it after washing my face and using Micellar water to get rid of extra gunk on my face.
As expected Maxi-Peel Zero still contains and smells like alcohol however Its not as strong as the old Maxi-Peel we all know. I use one cotton ball to apply it on my skin on upward motion. There is no tingling sensation on my part nor burning feeling even on the part of my face where I have acne.
My skin also doesn't feel tight, it simply feels and looks fresh. I apply on Aloe Vera gel afterwards as moisturizer. Nowadays I try to put on less products as possible.
After a week of usage I can say that my pores is more finer and my skin looks light unlike when I was using the old Maxi-Peel, my face looks dark. Bad news is that it caused purging and unfortunately it doesn't dry them out fast unlike the Maxi-Peel astringent. It doesn't add on more pimples though which is still a good thing. Maxi-Peel is a gentler version so I understand if it doesn't work as fast as its old counterpart. Pimples are not as inflamed when I was not using Maxi Peel Zero. My face also felt smooth to touch.
The color of the liquid is like whitish yellow.
whenever I use it, its like I am left with a bit of shiny face. Yes it is still drying but its not darkening my face. In fact on my 3rd day I noticed fairer skin tone than before.
How much and where to buy?
I got mine at P79 in Watsons but you can buy it at P75 at HBC or Mercury Drugstores.
What I love
- Refined pores
- Smoother skin
- Ease inflamed pimples
- Lightened skin
- Did not darken my face
- I can buy it anywhere
- Purging stage
- It still has the scent of alcohol in it
- Dries my skin
I had a hard time following this rule myself but do not ever ever try to pop up your pimple during the purging stage. Doing so will just make things worst. I have an inflamed king pimple right now. Sigh~
Will I repurchase?
Yes. I just did! :)
Maxi-Peel Zero is indeed a gentler version of Maxi-Peel. It stays true to all its claims which is a great reason to make the switch!
