As we head into the festive season, do you feel like you’re always on the go, be it shopping for gifts, planning gatherings, or gearing up for the new year? It barely leaves enough time to maintain a semi-decent skincare routine. Well, we might just have landed on the perfect product on clean beauty platform MissPalettable: the BABY FACE Skin Reboot Peel Mask.
Not only is this hybrid facial mask non-toxic and cruelty-free, but it also claims to “dramatically reveal women’s glowy baby-smooth skin”. Here at The Gaggler, we decided to put it to the test during this particularly frenzied period – and we’re glad to say that it passed with flying colours! The mask is unique in that, unlike many others, it contains a triple acid formula of AHA, BHA, and PHA, all of which work together to gently exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells and other deep-seated impurities.
Its other notable ingredients include Vitamin C, Citric Acid, Liquorice Root extract, Indian Pennywort extract, Evening Primrose extract, and Tea Tree extract that has several benefits such as anti-ageing, brightening, acne-fighting, and wound-healing. The peel mask is also free of parabens, sulphates, alcohol, and silicone! You can either get it as an individual mask or buy a set of five. I opted for the set, using one mask each week.

Start by cleansing your face to wash away any impurities or makeup.
Apply the mask for one minute. Tip: Make sure to unfurl the area around the nose before applying as it usually comes folded, and therefore unfolding it in advance makes the application much smoother. Also, be careful to not get any part of the mask in your eyes (rinse immediately if you do!) because, in my experience, the cut-outs for the eyes are on the smaller side.
Remove the mask after one minute and massage your face with your hands or a non-woven fabric. You’ll be shocked to see the amount of dead skin that comes off.
Rinse off the dead skin cells with lukewarm water. Look at that clean skin! It’s recommended that you use a toner afterwards for optimal results. Aim to use the peel mask once a week (while including SPF in your daily skincare routine, of course).
One of the biggest things that I noticed was the smoothness of my skin after using the masks and just how much dead skin would come off as a result of its exfoliating prowess – I don’t think my face has ever felt this clean. If you’ve ever tried a Moroccan bath or other full-body scrubs, you might be familiar with that light and almost-weightless feeling once you shed layers and layers of dead skin cells. This peel mask is just that, except that it’s for your face and way gentler. Not to mention, perfect for a season that calls for putting your best face forward. Win-win.
