This is the first peel I've ever used, and it's totally replaced my grainy/scrubby exfoliators. The MyChelle website says it's a good "beginner's peel", which I totally agree with. It's been very gentle but I can see a big difference in my skin after having used it once every week or two, since about January.
I don't know a lot about the scientific stuff concerning this, but the pumpkin works as an exfoliant - you just apply a tiny bit of this to clean, damp skin and let it sit for a few minutes before rinsing. Every time I use this, it makes my skin feel refreshed and perfectly clean. Plus it looks amazing - no dry spots, and everything looks more even and healthy. It does tingle a little bit, but it feels nice and adds to the smooth feeling my skin has after using this.
The scent is awesome - it smells exactly like fresh pumpkin pie filling (aside from the pumpkin it also has spices like ginger, clove and nutmeg, so it's the real deal).
This is a little expensive for me compared to what I used to buy for exfoliating, and it comes in a pretty small package. But it's been totally worth it for the way my skin has been looking and feeling (plus the pumpkin pie scent)! It's been lasting me a long time too since it isn't used too often. Using this has helped my skin feel more normal, as compared to how combination it used to be. Definitely recommend!
