Today I have two products from Simon & Tom to help keep your skin soft and in good shape for winter. The Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel* is an unusual facial exfoliator, while the Simon & Tom Elbow Treatment Cream* is is a rich, creamy option for dry skin. Both products contain Moroccan Argan oil to help moisturize.
The Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel was the first peeling gel I tried, although I later received the Tang Tang Kissy Skin Therapy Peeling Wash in a Memebox (reviewed here). I was really interested and unsure what to expect. Basically this is a gel that you apply to clean, wet skin and then massage in for 1 to 2 minutes. As you do, it rubs off (a lot like an eraser, see Julie’s post at Swatch and Review for an in-action shot!) purifying your skin as it does. It is so satisfying. Although this was much more peely than the “gentle” one I tried, it still doesn’t feel stripping the way a regular physical exfoliation can. Instead, my skin really does feel purified, although it is recommended to only use twice a week. I definitely follow up with a moisturizer afterwards, but I always do after washing my face.
Also from the brand is the Simon & Tom Elbow Treatment Cream. This is a very silky lotion that still absorbs well. However, it is has a fairly strong scent. I actually think that many people would like this scent, but I honestly don’t which makes it difficult to use. Although intended for elbows, you could definitely use this on any cracked or dry area. You don’t need much and it does a great job moisturizing.
Both the Simon & Tom Soft Peeling Gel and Elbow Treatment Cream are great products for winter skin, whether you need a gentle facial exfoliation, or your elbows are in bad shape. Unfortunately, I don’t like the scent of the lotion, but the Soft Peeling Gel was a huge success for me and I will definitely continue to reach for it! These products are available for sale on Amazon.ca
Have you ever tried a peeling gel before?
