Product Review: Prescriptives Instant Gratification Skin Renewal Peel

Prescriptives has just come out with a new skincare product called Instant Gratification ($45). It's a self-heating mask with microbeads that whisk away dead skin, and it promises to combine the benefits of a facial, peel and microdermabrasion—with results equivalent to a 30% glycolic acid peel.

Although I wasn't an immediate fan of Instant Gratification, it's won me over for its simplicity and results. I keep going back to this mask over and over, so it's definitely doing something right. For the full review,


Here's how to use the mask: Clean your face and blot off any excess moisture, leaving your skin slightly damp. Then, rub a generous amount of the mask on your skin in circular motions. You'll feel a warm sensation, but it doesn't burn at all. After five minutes, wet your fingers and gently scrub off the mask.

I've found that Instant Gratification does a great job of brightening the complexion and keeping my pores clear. It also leaves skin soft and smooth—and it was able to get rid of the gross flaky skin that inevitably pops up near my nose each winter. It's definitely not the strongest mask I've tried, but I like it because it's both effective and gentle. If you've been curious about exfoliating with beta hydroxy acids, this mask would be a good introduction.

I love your reviews. They are super helpful. But you should definitely divide your ratings... like one overall rating, then a rating on the price, how well it works, affordability, consistency, packaging, fragrance, etc... just so we get an idea of why it's rated what it's rated. but thank you! :)

I really would like to try this after seeing it on here and another blog. It's too much money for me to spend though.

I gave 3.5 stars because while I think it's a good and effective mask, it's also a little pricey. When I review a product, I like to keep price in mind, and factor the value into the ratings. For instance, I've been sampling a $150 jar of night cream, and I love it... but I wouldn't give it five stars unless I felt it was absolutely worth the high price. That way, if I do give a five-star review to a spendy product, you'll know that I think it's really worth the splurge.

I wish I could see the list of ingredients. I'd rather use something that's all natural, which I doubt this is. I can get an organic brand for a lot less and feel better about putting it on my skin without any unnecessary chemicals. I'm sure it's lovely, but not my idea of a bargain that's for sure! :)

Bella, why just 3-1/2 stars and not 5?

Looks interesting... bit pricey for such a small amount though, unless it's truly amazing.
