My Skin Regime Experience + GIVEAWAY! [Closed]

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to share my opinions and experience with "The Skin Regime." Dana Ramos, the author of this book, contacted me about 3 weeks ago and sent me a copy of her book and a sample glycolic peel. Her book, is a funny and short read. She explains how women everywhere spend waaaay more money on wrinkle creams and serums that don't work. She also goes into detail about which products work and which products to stay away from. She discusses how glycolic peels are beneficial for anyone and any age with nearly any skin issue. 

Since I am pretty familiar with facial peels, after working at a beauty counter which offered them by appointment, I pretty much knew there was nothing to lose with trying a sample. I knew it could only improve my skin. After reading this book, I will definitely look into purchasing more glycolic peels from the companies she mentions. I mean, who doesn't want great looking skin?

Here is Dana's website. There is lots of information and other before and after pictures to check out.

Here is my clean naked face before the first peel. 

This pad is pre-soaked with the glycolic acid. 

Here is a close up of my skin right after I applied the peel. My skin started to sting and it itched on my neck. There was noticeable redness on my cheeks, chin, and forehead. (This is normal. It's working! :))

After I rinsed the peel off, I still felt a little lingering sting but it eased up significantly after a couple minutes. As you can see, I still had redness, and little bumps appeared on my cheeks and chin, which almost looked like a heat rash. (Again, normal)

This was the morning after. My face felt slightly tighter and my skin felt soft for the most part. There was a patch of skin along the side of my right cheek which felt like a very fine grit sand paper (It felt like skin that needed to be sloughed off with an exfoliator). The bumps disappeared and the redness was almost completely gone. 
Overall, I really enjoyed doing the peel. I tried it again later with the left over glycolic I had and the sting felt nothing like the first time- it was much calmer. There also wasn't as much redness and I didn't get those little bumps.

Dana has kindly offered to give one of my readers a chance to win a copy of The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin, and a sample glycolic peel. This is an international giveaway so ANYONE can enter! Good Luck! :)
