    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

Unlike other masks that are made of microgel, cellulose, or foil, this mask is made out of cotton, which is not only super soft, but more environmentally friendly.

Now, I apply a tiny amount about three times a day and haven't suffered from chapped lips since."

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Kaysey Davis says: "I try to exfoliate my skin a couple times a week and this peel is the easiest and gentlest way to do it. I just rub it onto my skin in circular motions and watch as it lifts all the dead skin from my face. It takes less than a minute to work and my skin feels so smooth afterwards. I've been using it for a couple years now and it's completely changed the texture of my skin. I also love using it on other parts of my body like my hands and my feet that tend to get a bit drier, especially during the winter months."

Anybody who struggles with dry skin (especially in the winter time) will die for this. Plus, it smells amazing!"
