Dry winter skin often means a whole new set of problems for your skin. Not only is your skin dry and flaky, but it also often ends up over producing oil to compensate. This causes a whole new set of skin issues when the dryness leads to blemishes and clogged pores. I was able to try Andalou Naturals Kombucha Enzyme Exfoliating Peel, and it seemed like a potentially great match for winter skin issues.
Claims: “Grapefruit Kombucha, pineapple, and papaya enzymes loosen and exfoliate dull, dry surface cells, unclogging pores and stimulating circulation for improved clarity, tone, and texture. Fruit Stem Cell Complex and Vitamin C boost healthy cell renewal for a clear, refreshed complexion.”
Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis and Citrus Paradisi (Pink Grapefruit) Juices, Saccharomyces Xylinum (Kombucha) Black Tea Ferment , Pectin, Vegetable Glycerin, Cyamopsis Tetragonolobus (Guar) Gum, Papain, Bromelain, Hyaluronic Acid, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestsica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex, Lauric Acid, Salix Alba (Willow Bark) Extract, Hibiscus Rosa-Sinensis and Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Extracts, Arginine, Phenethyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) and Cymbopogon Martini (Palmarosa) Oils
Pros: Cruelty free and vegan. Free of GMO’s, gluten, paraben preservatives, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic colors, dyes and fragrances. Great smell. Smooth and sheer formula.
Cons: It’s a clarifying product, so it may be too harsh for some skin types.
The Verdict: I have to admit, at first I was worried that this product may be too strong for my skin and could irritate it. But it’s such a gentle and effective product! The Kombucha Enzyme Exfoliating Peel is moisturizing yet still effective in helping clear up clogged pores. With repeated use I did feel like I saw an improvement in the tone of my skin. It smells great, too! The grapefruit scent is light and natural. If you need something in your skin care arsenal to help combat the problems that cold weather can cause with your skin, give this exfoliating peel a try!
