If we had to list our priorities, skincare would definitely be toward the top. From our favorite moisturizers to hyaluronic acids, we put a lot of time (and money) into making our skin healthy and happy. This Fresh A Peel from Goldfaden MD will enhance all of the hard work you (or your facialist) put into your face to keep it fresh and glowing.

Why do I need it?

It’s an exfoliating peel that is designed to brighten and rejuvenate your complexion. Using a peel like this a couple of times a week will help preserve the healthy skin you’ve achieved by removing any buildup of dead skin cells. Bella Hadid’s facialist, Kristyn Smith, says this skin peel serum is her go-to for her own face. “This is gentler [than] the scrub (utilizes lactic acid and multi fruit acids) and ideal for those getting regular facials as it helps maintain healthy skin cells sloughing and production between treatments (this is a go to for my personal use),” she mentions. 

Is it worth the money?

Coming in at $85 a bottle, I think it's 100 percent worth the money based on what it did for my skin. I am a bride-to-be who is getting frequent facials before my big day and this product has been sincerely preserving my post-facial results for such a youthful and healthy glow. I have an uneven skin tone that dulls very easily as well as dark spots from acne scarring and sun damage and the peel helps even the color of my skin, brightens the natural color of my face and leaves my face noticeably softer. As if that weren't enough, I noticed that it substantially reduces the discoloration from my dark spots to make them less visible (and much easier to cover with makeup). I love that it's much gentler than other peels in that it doesn't tingle as harshly or leave my face red immediately after. 

As for how it works, after you cleanse your skin, add a generous amount of product to your fingers and evenly apply to your face. Leave it on for three minutes and rinse. You’ll immediately notice the tautness and smoothness to your face as the formula carries dead skin cells away. After testing many peels to find the right one for my sensitive combination skin, this one has proven to be the most gentle and effective for my face.
