There’s nothing quite like the power of a potent peel when it comes to revealing softer, brighter, younger-looking skin at home. But like many of us know, many of these options can be complicated, long-winded and, at the end of the day, a little lackluster in terms of the results they actually deliver—until now. For those looking for a simple and undoubtedly effective peel, look no further than the Peptide4 Overnight Radiance Peel ($80) by Elemis.
My Skin Type:
Combination, but leaning towards oily, with pronounced pores. My T-zone tends to get extra slick midday and my cheeks stay pretty dry-to-normal.
Exfoliating ingredients like lactic and hibiscus acids are paired with nourishing botanical oils and peptides in this milky formula. As a result, each use not only sloughs off dead, dull skin, but replenishes skin with dewy moisture for a just-got-a-facial glow. In fact, many peels are designed to be used weekly, but this one is so well balanced and hydrating it can be used daily.
How to Use It:
Say goodbye to multi-step peels. After cleansing and toning the skin, apply three to four drops over the face, avoiding the lip and eye area. Leave it on overnight and cleanse away in the morning.
The Bottom Line:
For fresher, brighter skin without any added hassle, this leave-on peel delivers. Whether you’re looking to hit reset on a dulling complexion, plump up the look of pesky lines and wrinkles, fade the look of acne scarring, or all of the above, this apply-and-go peel has you covered.
