I’ve really been enjoying testing Revolution Skincare recently, and I ordered the Revolution Skincare Pineapple Glow Gommage Peel as part of a skincare haul I did back in February, whilst they had a 3 for 2 offer on.
It wasn’t a product which was on my radar when it initially launched, but the packaging looked remarkably similar to the Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub, which I really like, so I decided to give it a try!
The Revolution Skincare Pineapple Glow Gommage Peel is £8, and contains 100g of product within a lemon yellow plastic tube. The packaging is similar to Yo Glow, even the colour of the tube. However, the prices vary considerably.
“Inspired by Korean beauty, this refreshing skin peeling gel gives immediate visible results whilst being gentle on the skin.
Starring Pineapple Extract (a blend of sugars, enzymes and Alpha-Hydroxy Acids) to help brighten the skin and Papaya Extract to help break down dead skin cells.
When massaged onto the skin, cellulose compounds help to instantly gather grime, debris and dead skin cells – pilling them into visible pieces (super satisfying!).
Wash them off to reveal brighter, smoother, more even-toned skin with added luminosity. Plus, you’ll be left smelling of fresh pineapple!”
The Revolution Skincare Pineapple Glow Gommage Peel is a thick translucent gel, which you massage into dry skin for 1-2 minutes, and then rinse.
The product is a cellulose based product, just like Yo Glow, and when you massage it into the skin, the cellulose balls up into little rolls and flakes, and some beauty brands try and mislead customers by saying the rolled up pieces are dead skin, but that’s incorrect.
It does definitely slough away dead skin cells, but the flakes and balls you get when using a cellulose enzyme scrub, are just the cellulose balling up, and it is not dead skin.
You could use the Revolution Skincare Pineapple Glow Gommage Peel or Wishful Yo Glow Scrub on a piece of paper, and you’d get the exact same balling up experience.
Revolution is one of very few brands which haven’t tried to mislead customers with this, and in their product claims, they clearly state it’s the cellulose compounds which ball up.
The Revolution Skincare Pineapple Glow Gommage Peel has a lovely, zingy pineapple scent, and as soon as you start massaging the gel into your skin, the balling up occurs, and it’s super easy to use, and rinse once you’ve finished massaging.
It does a fantastic job at sloughing away dead skin cells, and revealing brighter, smoother skin. It works wonders on minimising texture, and it’s even more amazing at smoothing my hands in preparation for the many, many swatches I do for Makeup Muddle and Gemma Etc.
I’ve tested the Revolution Skincare Pineapple Glow Gommage Peel on one side of my face, and then used Wishful Yo Glow on the other, and I genuinely cannot see a difference in the results between them.
I never like to throw around the word ‘dupe’ as it’s such an overused phrase in the beauty community, but in this case, the Revolution version is without a doubt a spot on dupe for Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub, and it’s only £8. Giving you a saving of £26 with exactly the same results and benefits.
