O.R.G Skincare Organic Mineral Peel Review

Happy Friday lovelies! Another crazy week is sweetly sliding into the weekend, but before I go to relax and unwind I want to share a little information about the newest organic skincare product, O.R.G Skincare Organic Mineral Peel Face, along with a Makeup Examiner exclusive “how-to” video from Celebrity Makeup Artist, Emily Oliver.

The Makeup Examiner is often approached to review one beauty product or another and some products, especially skincare, are rather unimpressive. So, when O.R.G Skincare approached The Makeup Examiner to do a review of their Organic Mineral Peel Face, my reaction was less than enthusiastic. Especially since the combination of words peel and face sends me screaming in the other direction.

Prior to testing out O.R.G Skincare Organic Mineral Peel Face ($44.00), I researched O.R.G Skincare and the product. The product’s origins date back the Silla Kingdom, which began in 57 BCE. As part of their culture, people would go to bathhouses called Jjimilbang and receive a ritual purification bath in which an individual would soak in an infused bath and appointed person would “massage out” all the remaining dead skin cells and impurities from the body. So the peeps at O.R.G discover the skin renewal properties of the Jjimilbang, gather an International team of dermatologists, estheticians, and skincare experts to replicate this bath culture and make it available to everyone.

Now, let’s get to the good, bad and beautiful of O.R.G Skincare Organic Mineral Peel. First, in my experience there is no bad … O.R.G lists all natural ingredients like grapefruit seed, jojoba seed, aloe vera, licorice root extract, and milk thistle, Organic Mineral Peel is super nourishing to the skin. The product is a milky liquid delivered via a spray bottle that is amazingly convenient. I applied a few sprays to my face, gently worked the product into my skin and within seconds saw these tiny bits of dead skin cells ball up. As directed I rinsed the product and immediately saw incredible results. What lay beneath was new, fresh, beautifully soft skin with zero redness!

But never one to be satisfied, I took to the all time driest part of my body … the bottom of my feet! I know what my pedicurist has to go through to get my feet soft, so I wasn’t expecting this product to really do too much to my conquer winter-weathered skin. Using as directed for the face, I sprayed a bit of product onto my heels, worked in a circular motion and watched a grossly massive amount of dead skin ball up. After I rinsed away the O.R.G Skincare Organic Mineral Peel, I was completely shocked to see gorgeous, supple, new skin revealed.

There is a reason why The Makeup Examiner is always telling readers not to use scrubs more than once per week … they are harsh to your skin! But unlike other exfoliants Organic Mineral Peel does not contain any “sandpaper” ingredients and can be used several times per week. I have used O.R.G Skincare Organic Mineral Peel three times this week and noticed a better absorption of my moisturizer, glowing skin and my makeup application looks better. Win-win-win! Looking forward to just a few months ahead when we will be baring bikini bodies and sandal feet, it’s time to get that skin into shape.
