The Sircuit Youth Accelorator is another popular item from the spa that I work at. This morning I cleansed my face thoroughly and put a thin layer of the accelorator to the skin on my face. Immediately, I felt a stinging-like tingle especially to the areas around my eyes. I think from now on, I need to be cautious of putting product on the skin around my eyes.
But after about 10min the layer hardens a bit to the skin and the stinging-like feeling resides.
I looked up the youth accelorator on the sircuitskincare website. Here's what they say about the product...

******My Review of this product is that it is pretty awesome and I would use it again. I am trying to learn the difference between a peel like this called "enzyme" compared to a "lactic acid" peel. It is difficult for me to understand exactly how it works, but with the "enzyme" , it seems that this is a deeper treatment. There is going to be light stinging, which means that the product is working. The enzyme peel is a deep pore cleaning/exfoliation treatment. So it is deep cleaning, which may help to reduce the appearance of big pores (something I suffer from) and it is taking off the dead skin cells, so revealing the newer skin underneath.
I found my skin to look like it is fresh and my skin color looks more even and vibrant. My skin feels smooth. Maybe not as smooth as when I do the mocha loca, lactic acid peel click here for that review. http://offdashoulda.blogspot.com/2010/11/spa-skin-sircuit-mocha-loca.html
And I see the lactic acid peel is not as deep of a treatment. There was no stinging in my experience with it. So that I can probably do like 2x a week, where the enzyme would only be 1x a week. The lactic acid peel leaves my skin so silky feeling. Its results are supposed to be to aid in hyperpigmentation and protect the skin from free radical damage.
