No matter what season we’re in, there’s always a reason to keep pumpkin skin care products in your life. Yes, I’m about that pumpkin. I know the founder behind the Protective Nourishment skin care line and she recently gave me a few goodies to try out. I wrote a review on her Blueberry Scrub Mask here. This time, I tried out the Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel.
According to LiveStrong.com, Pumpkin is rich in vitamin A, which soothes and softens your skin, and vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help to remedy damage produced by free radicals. They also state that pumpkin exfoliators and moisturizers can be used on all skin types to help remove old surface skin cells and promote new cell production. Who knew pumpkin was so skintastic?
The Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel is an anti-oxidant and nutritious mask combined with natural enzymes that will help achieve clear, radiant skin by removing dead skin cells. Pumpkin and 5% Glycolic Acid are combined to help deep cleanse, firm, and revitalize skin.
After a few weeks of not exfoliating, I was curious to see how this peel would make my skin feel. Below, you’ll find my before, during, and after photos. These are unedited images…just so you know. Just lighting and me in all of my glory.
Starting with a clean face, I applied the product to my skin (avoiding the eyes). I’m not going to lie, it smells amazing. You might want to eat this…please don’t. Then I let the mask sit for about 10 minutes. I may have gone a few minutes over that. I felt a little tingling sensation while it was on my face, but nothing bad. After, I rinsed with warm water and patted my skin dry with a clean dry towel.
I am happy to report that my skin feels amazingly soft. There is some tightening and my skin does feel a little revitalized. I didn’t see a major difference in the appearance or glow of my skin, as you’ll probably notice. But, it feels great. I plan on using this Protective Nourishment Pumpkin Peel once a week to help keep my skin soft and get it back on track.
