Testers say these exfoliating skin products give the same glow as ‘a salon facial’

Exfoliating peels are a huge beauty trend, promising to gently slough away dead surface cells to reveal smoother, more radiant skin underneath. But can you get results to rival an in-salon treatment using at home, using acids like AHAs, BHAs and glycolic? Yes, it turns out you can.

To find out which of these trending products makes a real difference, we picked out the latest peels and sent each one to five real women to trial for The Real Beauty Awards.

They told us what they thought at the end of the month, and it’s their reviews – nothing else – that decided which products scooped the awards.

PREMIUM (£30+)

WINNER: Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial, £67 here

There’s been a lot of buzz over this celebrity favourite, and it didn't disappoint. It gave unrivaled radiant results.

Tester says: “It immediately gave the same glow as an in-salon facial. It's a bit like an Instagram filter in a bottle. My skin looked so much brighter. It was also incredibly smooth. I've been looking for skincare with a bit more of a punch – and this is it. If it's good enough for Kim Kardashian…”

Tester says: “My skin looked like I’d consumed three litres of water! Fine lines looked reduced and the glow was stunning. I used it before nights out and I had so many compliments on my 'dewy' look despite barely wearing any make-up. I normally use about six different skincare products at one time, but this was like the benefit of all of them in one. 10/10.”

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Whind Sahara Silk, £55 here

This wasn’t just about glow. Testers loved the added benefits of smoother, less blemished and younger-looking skin.

Tester says: “The more I used this the more I fell in love with it. So simple, yet the results are fantastic. My skin feels so soft and hydrated and looks so radiant and glowing, like I’ve had a bespoke facial. Blemishes disappeared faster and I noticed a slight lift as my skin had more elasticity to it.”

MASS (UNDER £30)

WINNER: Soap & Glory In The Glow How 5% Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Tonic, £9.95 here

It wasn’t just our testers who noticed the impressive results with this exfoliator – almost everyone reported getting lovely compliments from friends and family too.

Tester says: ‘“I loved it from day one. It made my skin soft and silky and after use it was so easy to apply my make-up afterwards. It's hard to find perfect skin products that suit me, but I had good benefits from this. 10/10.”

Tester says: “This made a difference to my skin in the first few days. It was very delicate and gentle, and the results were amazing. My skin was radiant and glowing, smoother, brighter and more youthful – and I generally felt good. My friends said I looked really fresh. I loved this product.”

HIGHLY COMMENDED: Caudalie Vinoperfect Glycolic Peel, £23 here

Simple, effective and with gorgeous, glowtastic results. This didn’t just improve our testers’ skin, it made them feel confident and happy.

Tester says “I looked as though I had just had a facial – that glowing look when you look really fresh and smooth with no makeup on. Skin felt delightful too: really clean and fresh and much brighter than it ever has. I hate not wearing makeup and this made me feel confident as I had a glow.”
