Benefits of liquid face peels

We think you’re pretty incredible – shining the light on how to look after each other and the environment. We’d like to help you keep your inner and outer halo polished. Face peels might sound extreme, but our gel or liquid-to-gel-peels are the complete opposite. Welcome to our gentle, somewhat saintly liquid peels. These silky translucent gels are packed with clever ingredients that glide onto your skin and roll up into little noodles, scooping up lots of dulling dead skin cells and impurities as they go. Ready to let your inner goodness shine brightly? Excellent, here comes more on The Body Shop Liquid Peels.

What are our face peels?

A gel-peel is less of a peel and more of a gentle physical exfoliation, where on contact with your skin the gel turns into soft squidgy bunched up balls. So, rather than actually ‘peel’ your skin, as you massage the noodles across your face they trap redundant things like dead skin cells and pollutants – with a rolly-polly as they go. You’ll love how refreshing it feels as you rub the gel over your skin in circular motions. You get little soft bits of residue, a bit like you do from a pencil rubber – so it's super satisfying when you rinse them off. You’ll feel tingly clean and angelic with radiance that might just inspire some smiles.

How to use our liquid face peels

Our liquid face peels are a super easy-going, fit in anywhere sort of bathroom guest. With all their squidgy rolly-polly fun, you could say they’re the bi-weekly bathroom highlight too. You’ll find yourself wishing it was your-face-peel-night every night, but as with any other sort of exfoliation, they’re best used 2-3 times a week, once a week being the minimum for the wow factor. Their kind gentle nature means they’re suitable for all skin types, and we’ve got three beauties for you to choose from. They just slip into your daily skin care routine after you’ve cleansed your face. Then they get help lure out all those defunct dead cells and unwanted grubbies out of your soon-to-be dazzling visage.

What are the benefits of our liquid peels?

We could go as far as to say the benefits of face peeling include that joyful feeling – especially when you see the instant glow factor. They’re a lot of fun to use on top of being kind to your face – amplifying the joy of that silky smooth feeling. Face peeling helps you see the fruits of your labour – all that grime rolled up into noodles, it’s really rather satisfying. And with all this noodling helps remove dead skin from your face, encouraging new skin cells to shine forth. Liquid gel peels can even help refine face pores. All in all, they help give you a wonderful luminous complexion you can’t help sticking a smile on top of.

2. PEEL

Ready? It’s showtime. We like to call this the butterfly, it’s the shape you make on your face as you rub the gel-peel around your face. You need a couple of squirts of gel on clean fingertips, then start swiping upwards across your forehead (that’s the antenna shape). Then swirl down around your nose and move across your cheeks in a circular motion (the upper butterfly wing shape). You’ll quickly start to feel those noodles forming. Next down to your chin (in the shape of a butterfly’s bottom wing). Once all the gel has completely noodled, you’re ready to rinse off with water. A good wipe with a damp Muslin Cloth will get rid of any remaining residue. And woo-hoo, you’ve now got that amazing squeaky clean gel-peel feeling.
