I have very dry and very sensitive skin and I would like to try a peel or a exfoliating product but I am scared to make matter worst. I am especially scared about the sensitivity. I know the CP's and other products would work much better if I was exfoliating. Many times a product sounds wonderful but when I read the reviews I come to find out that it is not for me. Example: PSF Pumpkin Peel. Please recommend some products for my type of skin! Thanks!

Lactic Acid is the most gentle peel you can use. My skin is mature, thin and I must be careful. I get my lactic from Platinum Skin Care. I suggest that you call them for their advice if you are interested.

I am now the proud owner of a Clarisonic MD. I absolutely love this unit. To date it is my favorite "tool." Believe me I have many. Bad Grin The Clarisonic used with the delicate brush would work out nicely for you. It would be best if you used it a few times a week and worked up to once a day. I was using it twice a day (new toy) but found that was too much. IMO there is no need to use the Clarisonic in the morning.

Winnie: I have been seriously considering the clarisonic but just have not been able to cough up the money. I think it is on backorder at EDS! Thanks!

I have the same skin type and I use Modern Friction by Origins and I only apply it to my cheeks every second time. They say that it can be used 3 or 4 times a week but I only use it once and it is one of those products that lasts for 24 months after opening

Murad makes a fruit enzyme peel that is extremely gentle. (It's the only Murad product that I like, incidentally.)

I got a Cellex-C kit that included 1 oz. of their Speed Peel Polish and I like to use it on my face (I have dry skin). You leave it on for only a little while. It's gentle but gives me a fresh glow.

Doing online research, I see they've changed their formulations and now this speed polish I have is called a body polish and they've added stuff (including peppermint) for their "face polish". I would go with the "body polish" as you get more for your money and don't have the possibility of peppermint irritating your sensitive skin.

I too have dry sensitive skin and am using Aloette's Enzyme Peel and have had no adverse reactions and it is very effective at exfoliating. I have tried lactic acid but found it was too strong for my skin.

A gentle exfoliating cleanser is Philosophy's Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash. It can be used as a daily cleanser or occasionally as an exfoliant. The granules are fine and the cleanser is not too harsh.

I've had good success with Pevonia peeling enzyme cream. It is very gently on my sensitive skin and makes it feels very soft and smooth afterwords.

I like Ice Elements 2 Minute Miracle. It's sold here at EDS. It's similar to Aloette's Enzyme Peel but less expensive.

I'd be careful with Ice Elements! I used it once and although I was not rough and did not exfoliate too long, when I rinsed my face I found the Ice Elements tore my skin! It has been three weeks and I still have a raw patch of skin. But, I am allergic to aloe, etc. and generally do not exfoliate much, since I have been afraid of this sort of thing happening.

I used to think that my Clinique 7-day scrub cream was probably too rough and not doing the job other skin care products might, but, I have changed my mind. At least Clinique never hurt me. But then, we all respond differently...

Try Celazome Enzyme Exfoliating Masque. It's a cream mask made of pineapple extract. It exfoliates dry skin very well and it's relatively inexpensive.

alba enzyme peel is good. I am also about to try pevonia, there are some good reviews in this forum on it. Not as gentle, but still fairly gentle, is the juice beauty green apple for sensitive skin

The PSF pumpkin peel is very gentle. You may also want to try a 2% BHA lotion.
