These new liquid face peels are gross but awesome

They actually remove dead skin cells and ZOMG.

If you’re anything like me – tall, awkward, covered in feathers – you probably love a gross but satisfying beauty hack. Dr Pimple Popper videos are always fun. So are blackhead masks. And don’t even get me started on Milky Foot.

The latest and greatest of these weird-but-satiating beauty products are liquid peels.

Rather than buffing away dead skin cells using abrasive particles, these new, you-beaut chemical peels get rid of dead skin cells, without agitating your skin.

The best part? YOU CAN ACTUALLY SEE THE SKIN FORM CLUMPS AND PEEL OFF AND ZOMG, IT IS SO MESMERISING.

Here, we road test two products:

Not only do these chemical peels cater to the sickos curious cats amongst us, who are fascinated by weird beauty treatments, they actually work.

Using an exfoliator two to three times a week to remove those dead skin cells sitting on the surface of your skin will help treat blackheads, acne and prevent wrinkles. Basically, you’re getting rid of the old and making way for the new.

Of course, beauty products this fun are in high demand, and unfortunately, The Body Shop Drops of Youth Liquid Peel is sold out. However, you can – and should! – join the wait list.
