AmorePacific Treatment Enzyme Peel (review)




A highly effective, botanical-based brightening exfoliator made without harsh ingredients. 

This highly effective, brightening exfoliator is activated by water to dissolve dead surface skin cells, eliminate toxins and even skin tone without harsh abrasiveness. It’s formulated to brighten and even skin tone while providing you with a soft, smooth complexion. Over time, it improves penetration of other treatment products due to the removal of dead cells which prevent the skin from absorbing.

 Formulated WITHOUT:
- Sulfates
- Petro-Chemicals
- Phthalates

This is one those awesome products that has reached Holy Grail status in my book. I had this product for the longest time, but I didn't give it a try simply because of the word 'enzyme peel'. I thought this would be some sort of harsh chemical exfoliating product. Peels usually makes skin photo sensitive, meaning more sensitive to sun and as I always struggle from hyper pigmentation, I just stayed away from them. 

This however has improved my skin to a very great extent. Sharing my two cents below.

Color: Pale yellow powder

Texture and Consistency: Soft, slightly grainy looking (but has no rough grains) powder

Scent: It has mild fresh scent. It is pleasant and not chemically. I read few reviews that mentioned this had no scent, but I could detect mild scent to it. Hypersensitive nose maybe. 


Application: I use this as a part of my night time skincare regime. I take a little more than 1/4th spoon of the product on wet palms. On rubbing the hands, the powder instantly suds up, creating a thin foamy lather. I massage it on my damp face for around 45 - 60 seconds. Then rinse it off with water.

Feel and Effect on skin: On application, the product itself feels super smooth, gentle and soft on the skin. There are no scrubbing beads, no harsh exfoliating grains nor any tingling or burning sensation. After washing off the product, the skin feels silky smooth and looks very fresh, glowy, radiant and bright. It does not dries the skin like crazy. I follow it with my choice of serum or oil.

Packaging: I have two sample size bottles. The regular size bottle is pretty much made of similar plastic that has a matte, rubberized feel to it. It has a different kind of dispenser that automatically dispenses the needed amount of product.


Verdict: This is not a harsh chemical peel. Don't be fooled by the name as I was. The product feels more like a foamy face cleanser. As this is to be massaged on skin for less than a minute, it is very time efficient and can be easily incorporated into any skincare regimen. It brightens the skin and I have been using it for quite sometime. It has helped me with my hyper pigmentation and I have seen considerable change in my skin tone as well as skin texture. My skin has become more even toned and does not appears patchy. The product contains papaya enzyme, papain. This natural enzyme exfoliates skin without irritation and removes the dead cells gently. The green tea and alantoin soothe the skin and protect against free radicals. 
I am super impressed with the product. It performs excellent!!

Another powder like micro exfoliant is from Dermalogica. It is a nice, gentle product, but this one is just way too good and the results are 'visible'.
