I Abandoned all of my Skincare for 3 Days - and Used This Booster Pack Instead

Hi guys! It’s almost Friday, woot!

I got this interesting booster pack from the CEW Product Demo. It looks a little threatening, but it’s pretty easy to use. There are 3 steps – a cleanser, a peel and a moisturizer. For 3 days, only use this. No other skincare. Easy enough, right? I’ll give you my thoughts on each step, then overall what I thought of the results!

Gentle Prep Cleanser
  • Gently Cleanses
  • Removes Makeup
  • Preps Skin for Peel

My thoughts: I thought the cleanser was pretty nice. The texture is more on the gel side which I liked. I did cheat a little bit on the “no other skincare rule” though – I used makeup removing wipes for my eye makeup. I’m not sure if that counts or not HA. My eyes are really sensitive, and I don’t like using my cleanser to scrub off my makeup. Overall I thought the cleanser did was it was supposed to do – cleaned the skin and prepared it for the peel.

Non-Irritating Pro Peel
  • Refines Tone and Texture
  • Brightens Complexion
  • Boosts Treatment Results

My thoughts: Non-irritating my ass! There was absolutely a reaction when I spread this on my skin. After a minute it calmed down, but I wasn’t expecting a slight burning. You leave this on for 5 minutes then wash it off with just water. The next 2 nights I didn’t feel the slight burning sensation, maybe my skin was used to it from the night before. It says you can use all steps under the eye area, but I would be careful how close you put the peel. Of course this is just one person’s opinion and everyone’s skin reacts differently to products. After washing the peel off, my skin did feel a bit tighter and thankfully I did not have any redness.

Radiance Renewing Deep Moisturizer
  • Intensely Hydrates
  • Smoothes and Redefines Texture
  • Brightens and Evens Skintone

My thoughts: After the not so wonderful peel experience, my skin welcomed this moisturizer with open arms. The formula itself is nice – a thin, white cream that smoothes on seamlessly. It felt nice and rich, but sinked into skin fairly quickly.

After 3 days: I have to report that my skin did appear overall smoother and tighter. Not sure about the brightness part so much. I could tell when I was putting on my foundation that the peel seemed to even out my skintone. I was happy with the results. I was also happy that 3 days of doing a peel didn’t dry out my skin. I’m assuming this is due to the nice moisturizer included. I have to say though – I did miss my regular skincare routine! My pretty face oils, cleansers, serums, etc. I would say that this booster pack is effective – but definitely more on the medical/clinical side vs. luxury skincare side (it WAS developed by a doctor, afterall!) I think this would be ideal to do before an event – a wedding, somewhere photos will be taken. Makeup looks 100 times better if you take care of your skin underneath, it’s just a fact!
