001 Skincare Pure Active Peel

I got a sample of this product in the A Beautiful World Winter Sampler Box. I didn’t use for a couple of weeks – not for any reason in particular I just hadn’t got round to using it. But I was reading a few blogs and Ana from Ana Goes Green said how great it was so I went home & tried it as soon as I finished work!

001 is a new brand to the UK and is available exclusively at A Beautiful World. It is a natural, botanical brand that is inspired by Asian philosophy. The Pure Active Peel is an exfoliating fruit peel that is deep-cleansing to leave skin glowing, radiant and revitalised. Ingredients include enzymes from pineapple and natural AHA acids, as well as a combination of Marine Algae and Chinese Peppermint and natural Citrus Essences to help hydrate, plump and leave skin feeling rehydrated and refreshed. If you’re looking for a new natural exfoliator, read on…
After reading about the product, I soon realised that it sounded perfect for my oily, blemish prone skin. You apply it to dry skin once a week to unclog pores and minimise imperfections on the skin’s surface. Massage it in gently and leave on for about 10 minutes then wash it off with water.

I used this last night and if I’m honest I found it a little difficult to apply. That’s the only bad thing I have to say about this product though! It just sort of didn’t stick to my skin and fell off in lumps on the floor but once I rubbed it in, it stayed in it’s place. It felt really gentle on my skin but still offered a light exfoliation. It smells gorgeous and felt really nice on my face. I left it on for 10 minutes then wiped it off with warm water on one of my Love the Planet washable cleansing pads and my skin looked great. The pores on my nose looks significantly smaller, my skin was glowing and it felt so smooth. I have high hopes for this product and hope that with continued use it will help with my breakouts and large pores & blackheads on my nose.

*UPDATE 2015* This isn’t available on A Beautiful World anymore, however 001 are available to buy in Fortnum & Mason’s and also via their website and it has also been reformulated since this review.

Have you tried anything from 001? What did you think?

  1. I am really glad you like this and thank you for the mention, I agree it is fiddly to apply due to the texture, I smoothed it on bit by bit not wanting to drop any and it's too expensive for that, aside from that I love it šŸ™‚ Xx

  2. This sounds really good! Is it a manual exfoliator rather than a chemical one? x
