Ignore the overly elaborate name for Le Metier de Beauté’s new peel and mask set and understand the basics. It’s a two-part set which includes a salicylic and glycolic peel in a nifty, squeeze brush applicator and a sleek jar of mask formula that peels off when dry. The folks at Le Metier promise this two magic potions diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, increase hydration, revive dull-looking skin, and the usual post-peel irritation and redness. I got to sample the treatment on Friday, and lo and behold, they’re not lyin’.
Both steps of the treatment take only a couple minutes each, and I truly walked away with glowing, hydrated, extra soft skin that suggested I just had a facial. It was almost magical. The price, alas, is not. It’s $265. But, with holidays around the corner, it’s perfectly reasonable to push this to the top of your wish list. Eventually, both pieces of the two-part system will be sold separately, but for now, it’s a duo, and after my experience, I wouldn’t recommend it any other way.
