Dual Enzyme Softening Peel by Renée Rouleau is a natural face mask formulated for red, sensitive and delicate skin types that require non-granular exfoliation. This advanced creamy peel uses natural enzymes of papaya and pineapple to lift uneven discoloration (due to sun, age and blemishes) and smooth away dry cells to restore skin to a fresher and more youthful appearance—without causing irritation. With weekly use, this natural mask will dramatically improve the visible effects of environmental and pigmentation damage while improving the skin’s moisture levels deep within the skin. Retinol and retinoid users will respond favorably to surface enzymatic exfoliation to lessen flakiness and dryness. The result? Bouncy, brighter-looking skin with an exceptionally smooth texture with fewer visible lines and pores.
Size: 1.7 fl oz

How To Use
Unlike acids, enzymes are activated by water and work more slowly to digest cellular buildup so Dual Enzyme Softening Peel will work most effectively when applied to clean, DAMP skin and left on for 15-20 minutes. Use 1-3 times a month, or as needed. If you're using any of our exfoliating acid serums for three nights on, three nights off as recommended for your skin type, you would use the Dual Enzyme Softening Peel once or twice a month during the non-exfoliating nights.

I was avoiding exfoliants for a long time because I have sensitive and acne prone skin, and most exfoliants made me breakout. The first time I used this, my face felt softer and was brighter. Bonus: my makeup applied so much nicer after using this mask. 10/10 would recommend!

I’m a skin type 5 and have been using the dual enzyme peel for two years now. It’s the best one I’ve tried yet. My skin feels so soft and fresh afterwards. It doesn’t irritate my skin but if I do get a little red, I use the bio calm mask afterwards and I feel like I just left the spa!

This mask is my favorite for my mid-40’s skin AND perfect for my 13 yr old daughter’s acne. It calms and soothes and brightens for a flawless, dewy glow. Love it!

My skin is super sensitive, so I started using this as an exfoliation mask once a week. I apply it at the end of my shower, and then wait 15 minutes, rinse off and finish out my morning routine. My skin looks and feels so soft and smooth afterwards with no irritation like I get with physical exfoliation. I don’t know how I ever lived without this product!
