Skin gets clogged with dead skin cells, which can make it dull and
lifeless. Skin Peels are a deep form of exfoliation that removes dead
skin to improve skin tone and texture. Homepeel’s Fortnightly
Fruit Peel is a gentle form of skin peel which does not result in
obvious peeling of the skin. It safely sheds away the outermost layers,
revealing the new radiant skin beneath.

Homepeel Review Week One
The Fortnightly Fruit Peel by Homepeel kit arrived in the mail safe
and sound, it comes in a small pounch, a bottle of the peel liquid,
a brush, hair net and a piece of gauze and a set of instructions.
I was looking forward to my first peel as I am a peel virgin. Never
having had one before I wasn't too sure what to expect; apart from
what Homepeel promise of course; "Within minutes, the fruit and
lotion combination work to gently remove the upper dry, dead skin
layers, revealing a fresh glowing skin with no obvious peeling.”
So I was up for a new brighter glowing face! I read the instructions
and then bought some strawberries as apparently they are one of the
best fruit to use. Step one was making up the peel. I got a cup and
had to place 2 – 3 teaspoons of the peel into the cup. This
would have been easy, however the bottle had one of those drip tops
which are great if you only want a couple of drops, but I failed on
the first count as I was so busy shaking the bottle up and down to
get the drips out I lost count of how many teaspoons I had done! Then,
I had to add a small amount of fruit, so I added one strawberry and
mushed it into the liquid. Now, the instructions said that you should
form a paste but this didn't look very paste like so I added another
strawberry plus I ate one for good measure! It still wasn't very paste
like, but they were lovely juicy strawberries and decided that I would
rather eat the rest than put them on my face! The process did make
me a bit nervous, had I got the amounts right?
Next I got my hair out of the way. I didn't use the hair net but
I am sure it would have done the job. I then had to adapt the next
instructions, I had to place a small amount of vasaline on the corners
of my mouth and nose, as these are the sensitive areas. I couldn't
find my vasaline so I used lip balm which I thought would do just
as well and did, smelt good too! I did wonder about the eyes as there
was no mention of that area. I decide that I might be a bit foolish
to cover them in peel. So I dipped the brush in the peel and went
for it painting my face avoiding the eye area. As the peel wasn't
that thick my face was just a shade of light pink with the few odd
small blobs of strawberries. It did feel lovely and cool when you
put it on and the brush was beautfully soft. I set the timer for 5
mintues and watched carefully in the bathroom mirror. The instructions
said it might tingle and if it got too much to take it off. As I stood
there my husband appeared at the door and was quite horrified as he
thought I was bleeding and my face was actually dissolving! I laughed
and told him not to panic it was only the bits of strawberry! When
the 5 minutes was up using the gauze gently scrubbed all over my face,
that felt really nice. Then I washed off the peel and looked at the
results wishing instantly that I'd taken a before and after shot.
My forehead in particular looked really fresh, my skin felt wonderfully
soft. I was truly quite amazed. I put some moisturiser on my face
and that was that. For the rest of the evening I couldn't help but
run my hands over my face, just to check, yes it was still there.
It did peel very slightly, probably in areas I had missed with the
In the morning the first thing I did was touch my face and very relieved
it was still there and still felt wonderful. Now I have to wait 2
weeks until I can peel again, I can't wait, maybe I will try a different
fruit next time.
I'll let you know what happens when I try it again in two weeks time!
