By now you know that exfoliating is a must when it comes to maintaining good, healthy skin. And exfoliation doesn’t always mean using a scrub or a tool; I think the misconception with exfoliating is that it’s a rough process on the skin. But the fact is that we need to be ridding our skin of dead cells in order to let the healthy skin shine through! Done on a regular basis, exfoliation is the best way to keep your skin in tip top shape.

Recently I had a chance to visit with Ole Henriksen at his LA spa (interview and giveaway coming soon!! Stay tuned.) and he was nice enough to gift me some products because he knows I love his line! One product I am trying for the first time is the Lemon Strip Flash Peel. This potent peel packs a combination of glycolic, lactic, and fruit acids along with other ingredients like algae. It’s a clear gel formula that comes with a brush for application. Because of the acids in this peel, be prepared for a tingling sensation which only takes a little bit of adjusting the very first time you use it. After the first time it feels just fine. Once the cool gel goes on, just let it sit and work its magic for 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.

I’ve been using it for 3 weeks now, and every single time my skin looks better than the last time I used it. If you’re dealing with unevenness, clogged pores, fine lines, or just a dull complexion, I strongly recommend the Lemon Strip Flash Peel! You can use it once or twice a week depending on what your skin issues are… Personally, I have to stop myself from using it every day! Especially for someone like me with really dry skin, it’s important to lift away that outer layer of dead skin. When your skin is dry and cluttered with dead skin, no amount of product that you apply to your face will sink in and work the way it’s supposed to. So using a peel like the Lemon Strip Flash Peel is ideal for keeping your skin not only in good shape, but ready to receive all the nourishment you pump into it with your favorite products!

And for those of you worried about the effects of coarse scrubs on your skin, this is not only more powerful than any scrub, but it’s actually going to be much more gentle on your skin. You don’t have to work overtime scrubbing your face; instead this peel does all the work for you, revealing glowing skin!! It’s definitely a a favorite in my skincare arsenal.

      I do love them all, but I think the routine I’m going to get into is using the Ole Henriksen peel once a week and the Origins brightening peel pads once a week, sort of alternating between the two. :)

    Hi Teni, do you mind sharing what skincare you are currently using e.g. cleanser, toner, serum and moisturiser? Your skin is flawless without makeup! I think I saw Peter Thomas Roth in your ‘How I remove my makeup’ video. Thanks x

      Yes the PTR glycolic acid wash is one of my FAVORITE cleansers, and I rarely have a favorite cleanser. I’ll be doing a haul video with my new Ole Henriksen products soon as well as a strictly skincare video where I’ll chat some more about what I’m doing with my skin these days. :)

    Do you think they ship worldwide ? Try “ocean salt” from Lush! Their product are cruelty free and quite natural, I read somewhere on your blog that you wanted to use more of such product ;)

      Yes, indeed, I love Lush! I will have to try the ocean salt. :) And as far as shipping worldwide, they do carry the products at Sephora so that’s another option. Otherwise check out this link for where you can buy it:

    I started using the mini peel kit with this Lemon strip, almond polish, and chamomile comfort which is layered over the lemon strip after 2-3min per the directions. So far it’s been my weekly go-to ritual to prep my face for the week. Glad to see you reviewing it!

    Thankyou for all your wonderful reviews and beauty tidbits. I look forward to your blog posts, Instagram and YouTube treats!! You may be covering this topic in you video, but….pigmentation. Is there a product you recommend? My skin type seems to hyper pigment with acne flair ups or over sun exposure quite easily.

      Actually this product is fantastic for pigmentation. Also, there are two products that I think would work great for you if you’re dealing with pigmentation: The Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum which works wonders, and if you’re looking for something more on the drugstore end, the Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair night treatment is amazing! I personally use that and I love it.

    Ole Henriksen is one of my favorites! Im intrigued in trying it! I love taking care of my skin and i do the best i can and thankfully even tho i dont exfoliate its not that bad cause i eat healthy and do my daily routine which works for me. but anyway you inspire me every time i read your post and im such a big fan of you! xo :)

    had a quick question also I was wondering where is your template from?…. Im looking to changing mine up and need/looking for something with tabs on top to keep my post in categories. and also did you create your blog with wordpress or blogger?

      to be honest the best thing to do is do a Google search for “free minimalist wordpress themes” and it’ll give you lots of options! I use WordPress, I personally like it much better than Blogger.

    Hi Teni,
    You are stunning and have such gorgeous skin!! I am really interested in trying peels, however I have very acne prone skin and am wanting something that will reduce the scarring and discoloration. Is there anything you would recommend??

    • Teni Panosian
      October 15, 2013 at 8:18 am (1 year ago)

      The peel will do exactly that!! The peel removes dead skin and helps new cells take over. That process will slowly reduce discoloration, however, depending on how severe your scarring is, it may or may not help with that. If they’re mild, it will help, but if they’re deep, I would look into a laser treatment. But as for discoloration, this is definitely a good pick! I have the same problem with spots left behind after I break out, and they disappear so quickly when I renew my skin with a peel. :)

    Hi Teni, thank you for posting this. I got this on Monday and have used it 3 times this week. I was using a recommended peel by H2T, which is a pumpkin enzyme peel. It has parabens in it and I was looking for a new one with anti-cancer causing ingredients. I’m almost finished with my pumpkin peel, so this is a great option. In just 3 uses, my skin is so bright and has a more radiant glow, when I wake up in the morning. I use this at night. I also feel as though with long rehearsals, my skin doesn’t look as tired, perhaps because of the brightening affect. I also use his Pure Truth Vitamin Oil, which if you haven’t tried, it’s wonderful. I was wondering, do you alternate what time of day you use the peel? Also, have you used this on your d├ęcolletage area? Thanks so much!
