This easy to use gommage peeling spray is made in Korea and is gentle enough to use on your face even before makeup. Don’t let that gentleness fool you, it is effective enough to work its magic even on crusty pandemic feet! 

So what is a gommage? Gommage comes from the French, meaning 'to erase,' and Sexapeel does just that with your dead skin. Gommage exfoliation is a gentle exfoliation that is a combination of manual and chemical exfoliation

Gommage exfoliation is the effect you see when the product begins to ball up and work to slough away dead skin, and other debris, from the skin’s surface. 

Sexapeel Instant Exfoliation Spray uses glycolic and fruit enzymes, which means that it is gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin (always do a patch test) while still being very effective. The mechanical exfoliation of gently rubbing the product to activate it causes dead skin cells to be removed, without the need for harsh beads or any sharp microparticles.

How to Exfoliate Your Face with Sexapeel

  1. Start with a clean, dry face. Sexapeel instant exfoliation spray works most effectively if you start with a dry face. 
  2. Give Sexapeel exfoliation spray a good shake and spray 4-5 pumps (more as needed) into your hands. 
  3. Start with the center of the face and concentrate on the areas that need the most exfoliation, avoiding eyes and lips. Apply product and rub to begin to see the gommage effect. Work in a back and forth motion until you’ve applied the desired amount of product to the whole face, neck, and chest area. Massage for 10-20 seconds for the best exfoliation.
  4. Rinse with water or a wet washcloth and pat dry. If any product is stuck in your peach fuzz hair, simply let it dry and it can be brushed off with a dry cloth. 
  5. Apply your skincare routine as usual. Do not forget your SPF if you’re going to be outside! 
  6. Sexapeel is gentle enough to use on your face every other day, or as needed.

How to Exfoliate Your Body

Similar to the face exfoliation, Sexapeel can also be used as a body exfoliation on your entire body! (Just not the naughty bits!)

  1. Start with clean, dry skin. Many people like to use Sexapeel before getting in the shower. 
  2. Give Sexapeel a good shake and spray directly onto the desired area. Once again, avoid the lips, eyes, and any other sensitive areas. 
  3. Apply product and rub to begin to see the gommage effect. Work in a back and forth motion until you’ve applied the desired amount of product to the whole area. 
  4. Rinse with water, a damp washcloth, or simply shower as you normally would and towel dry. 
  5. Do not forget to moisturize the area you’ve just exfoliated to see the full effect of the product. 
  6. Sexapeel can be used on the body daily, but please remember your SPF if you’re going to be outdoors!

  10. Great for keratosis pilaris (chicken skin) to help remove/soften the appearance of bumps on the back of the arms and on legs. 
  11. Sexapeel exfoliator helps your moisturizer and other products work better and more effectively because you’ve removed the top layer of dead skin.
  12. Sexapeel exfoliator is great on the bottom of your feet for a spa at home pedicure, or when we eventually come out of quarantine, use Sexapeel after you get a pedicure for even smoother feet! (Our diabetic clients love this trick.) Summer sandals season—no more falcon feet from a year in quarantine! Woman rubbing skincare product on her shoulder
  13. Itchy, scratchy back? Have your partner use Sexapeel exfoliator your back then moisturize. Oh, baby. (I will not be responsible for what comes next).
