Ole Henriksen Lemon Strip Flash Peel

What it is:A one-step natural acid peel to resurface, refine pores, and soften the look of lines. What it is formulated to do:This professional-strength one-step express peel incorporates a 20 percent AHA complex of lactic, glycolic, and multifruit acids to dissolve dead skin cells and resurface, while purified algae extract and bio-saccharide soothe and nourish. When skin is calm, actives are able to penetrate deeper and results are maximized. Instantly reveal a more even skintone, the appearance of smoother texture, minimized pores, and reduced look of lines for a radiant, refined complexion. A 20 percent AHA Complex exfoliates in three ways to resurface by supporting natural cell renewal: lactic acid is a natural, gentle exfoliant that doubles as a humectant glycolic acid penetrates skin deeper to support natural cell turnover for softer, smoother skin and a fruit acid complex is a concentrated blend of five botanical extracts containing naturally occurring AHA’s that work to exfoliate by weakening bonds of dead skin cells so they can be shed from skin’s surface. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates Research results:In a consumer use study on 27 respondents: -97% said product revealed younger-looking skin -97% said skin felt smoother and skin texture was improved after use -93% said product brightened and evened skintone -89% said the product reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles -92% saw an improvement in overall skin radiance

I use this product every other day, or 2-3 times a week. It is gentle enough if you don't use a lot of harsh products in your skincare routine (like acne cleansers, acne treatments... etc..)

I decided to give this a try -- and it worked!!!
I had these ugly bumps that wouldn't turn into pimples and were just congested skin. After about a week (two applications) my skin became smoother and definitely within two weeks my bumps were gone.

I think so. It worked for me. My only problem now, it did such a great job getting rid of the gunk in my pores, I have open pores. They look like little holes. I wish I could get rid of this part of it. But my skin feels so good, I really am not complaining. When I use my foundation it smoothes out the open pores.

Yes, if used regularly because it helps to exfoliate the dead skin from your face. This along with regular cleansing (2x per day, Boscia cleanser with Botanical Blast is amazing) helps keep pores from getting clogged.

I didn't have redness. If you have extremely sensitive skin you could leave it on for half the recommended time the first time you use it and see how that works for you. Then you could increase the timing during following applications.

If you have very sensitive skin it might. My friend used it and her face was red for about an hour. When she used it again she left it on for half the recommended time and didn't turn red.

The first time I used the peel my skin was not pink or red at all. It didn't seem to do much. But after I used it two or three times, my skin was a bit pink when the product was drying. After I washed it off, my skin around my cheeks and eyes were a little pink. Seemed to fade throughout the night.

Immediately after, yes. If you make sure you follow the directions to a T, then the redness will subside maybe 15 minutes after you wash it off really well and use a moisturizer. Good luck!

Wash off?

Definitely wash it off. It is supposed to remove dead skin, so why leave it on? Wash off after 10 minutes to reveal your smooth and flake free skin

I remove the product with a damp washcloth and then rinse my face with water. I found that 10 mins is too long for my skin so I leave it on for five/six mins instead and still get wonderful results. I would definitely wash it off - it could dry out your skin.

How many uses out of this jar?
I'm contemplating on whether I should get this jar or the 6 treatments of the Power Peel Professional Grade kit. Which would be a better value? My main reason of wanting to try this product is to heal up acne scars, which by the reviews seems to work wonders. Thanks!

I use this peel once a week, and after 4 applications of it, the jar still appears full! The little brush thingie that comes with the peel helps make applying the peel very easy and ensures that you don't use too much product. I am very pleased with this purchase, even though it was a pricey one, because it appears that I'm going to get a lot of mileage out of it.

I actually got more than 10 peels out of this jar. I alreay have a night-time moisturizer that I love (Korres Wild Rose+Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial) and a polish as well, so I didn't bother getting the power peel kit. But I would recommend getting the power peel kit if you're hesitant about your own polish/scrub and moisturizer or if you don't have one or both.

everyone is saying to make sure to use moisturizer after this, so is a good healing and hydrating mask a good thing to use after the peel? Can I use this once a week as an at home facial with a mask after?

With the cooler weather my skin has gotten drier and using a great moisturizer after this peel really does wonders on my skin. The dry patches are gone! I think that this peel gets rid of all the yuck that blocks lotions and other products from soaking in adequately.

That's exactly how I do it. It's the same as the second step in OH's 3 step peel system, which comes with a moisturizing mask as step 3 that you put right on top of the peel for 10 minutes. I've gone both that route and a moisture mask as a completely separate step and gotten great results both ways.

You only have to use a teaspoon per session...so it should last a really long time depending on how often you choose to use it! I don't use the brush as it wastes too much product. I use Clean fingertips to apply. I haven't used the other product I can only say that this one works amazingly well.

A little goes a long way. I would suggest to avoid using the application brush. A lot of the product gets lost on this. I used the brush at first and then found out less product was wasted when I applied with my fingers. It lasted a long time when applied with my fingers.

A clay mask before, then the Ole Henrikson peel, and a gentle scrub in the shower would be a great trio for congested/oily skin.
