'Cult' products generally underwhelm me. So much hype, not enough substance. Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel however lives up to all the talk and so much more. It is one of those products that I can only really describe as simply lovely. Lovely smell (good enough to eat). Lovely texture (no abrasive particles). The packaging, the quality and the results are all just so, so lovely.
The smooth cream peel contains an exotic cocktail of natural fruit enzymes from African Papaya and Far Eastern Pineapple that helps to gently exfoliate and purify tired or sensitive skin. It is enriched with extracts of Sunflower and Vitamin E to help remineralise and condition the skin, whilst providing Anti-Oxidants and free-radical protection.
Apply a small amount onto cleansed skin and leave like a mask for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off to reveal a smooth, soft and radiant complexion. It is the most gentle, non-abrasive yet effective way to shed dull skin and is suitable for all skin-types, definitely not just for its anti-ageing properties.
It is rather pricey for a face mask, however a little goes a long way and used sparingly once a week or so as a treat it can last up to 4-6 months.
All in all this is a real treat to use. I swear by it as a pick me up in the mornings after a late night, or as a completely luxurious and effective home-pamper treatment.
