Skin Care Review: Jannsen Herbal Green Peel

by Anita Schadler, Uvalde, TX US

No effect

Rejuvenate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Not all natural as represented. Very uncomfortable.

The Jannsen Greel Peel was presented as the all natural, chemical free alternative to microdermabrasion. As I prefer to use all natural products whenever possible, that sold me immediately. The treatment consisted of a partial facial and application of the peel. This felt very much like someone rubbing grit into my skin. The product was left on for several minutes of intense burning before being wiped off with a damp cloth. I was told not to rinse my skin with water for five days "because the herbs were working into my skin" and was sent home with two bottles, one of which was a heavy oil-based moisturizer and the other basically a bottle of tint to add to the moisturizer before applying to my skin to help hide the redness. For five days my skin looked like it was severely sunburned, with the addition of small pieces of grit dotting my face (the peel "working its way out of my pores"). The moisturizer was full of chemicals, as was the tint, and basically I was simply coating my skin with a product much like my mother's cold cream of the 60s. After one week, I had a followup facial, including extractions. My skin doesn't look much different now than before, but I definately won't be repeating the fiberglass in the skin sensation.

My skin doesn't look much different now than before. Product doesn't work.
