The side of the box of Mychelle Fruit Fiesta Peel says “not for beginners". Uh? What? Are you supposed to wear it while skiing down a double black diamond or something?
I, of course, took this not as a warning but as a challenge.
After all, what could be so extreme about a product called Fruit Fiesta Peel. Sounds fun, right?
Yes, fun in an "it's got 5 different types of acids kind of way". (They're all plant based.) And it has so many different types of fruit (raspberry, cherry, cranberry, pumpkin, apple, blueberry, pineapple, pomegranate, bitter orange, grapefruit) it's like a nutritious preserve your senile, great aunt, made while cleaning out her fridge.
The Mychelle website says, the ingredients "romance your skin to a more radiant, youthful glow". If you consider S&M romance, than yes, I suppose that's true.
It also says, "you will feel light tingling". I do believe they were using "light tingling" as a synonym for being water boarded into a vat of acid.
You're supposed to leave the peel on for 5 minutes. Cut to me 4 minutes and 52 seconds later, running into the bathroom, unable to bare it for even a second longer. (The breeze from the running actually helped cool the burning.)
So was this little, fruit fiesta worth the sensation of having my face used as a pinata at a school for violent, wayward children? You bet ya. My skin was tighter, smoother, extremely radiant, and looked years younger after just 4 minutes and 52 seconds.
It even reduced the appearance of the frown line between my brows. (Or as I like to call it "brow cleavage". So much more positive, don't you think?)
Light tingling, my ass.
I've gotten some emails asking where people can find the products I talk about in my posts. Feel free to use Google “search the web” box, to the right, to find out where you can find it (and for how much).
