One of the nicest smelling products around, I love the texture too, feels so smooth and luxurious. it is an easy product to use, I left it on my face whist watching tv for a while, then washed it off during the adverts, after my skin felt so soft. will defiantly be using the product for a long time!

Indulgent facial care
I was really happy with the lovely smell of this product,and how easily and quickly it was absorbed into my skin.It made my skin feel tingly and nourished and as I am a lady in her fifties it felt as though my skin was having a real treat. Very luxuriant.

Papaya Enzyme Peel
This product is as usual of a very high standard. There is a delicate smell and it is extremely easy to use. It is very smooth to put on and once on the skin it has a delicious cooling effect. Having left it on the skin for the required time suggested warm water is effective for taking it off leaving the skin feeling quite soft and pampered. I can truly recommend this Papaya Enzyme Peel to people who like Elemis and to those who have never tried Elemis do try it.

a little affordable luxury
tiring of abrasive exfoliators i decided to give this a try. i cleansed my skin before opening the tube. delightful light and fresh scent, luxurious product, felt lovely on my skin, and a little goes a long way. could feel it working straight after putting it on. left for the suggested 15 mins and gently rinsed off. very surprised to see glowing skin, and non of the redness my exfoliator was leaving after. finish my routine with the serum and moisturiser, and apart from a little mascara and lipgloss, for the first tme ever i was confident about going to work without full make up. this is now one of my beauty 'must haves'

Papaya enzyme peel
After using the Elemis papaya enzyme peel, I feel as though it has improved the texture of my skin. I have extremely sensitive skin and I have never reacted badly to the product. I have been using the product for other a month now and found it a beneficial addition to my skin care regime. It has a pleasantly fresh scent and the product isn't overpowering. The texture is smooth and creamy which I find a positive as it does not feel abrasive. In addition as promoted on the packaging through the Elemis promise, it is free from nasty chemicals which is important to me. Personally I would of enjoyed using the product more if it had a hinged lid instead of a screw cap, as I found myself dropping the lid. Overall I think that the product when used, exfoliates without over-drying my skin, it also didn't sting or cause my face to feel tight like some products I have used in the past. I will continue using the product in the future.

Clean faces this way!
I keep my congested skin under control with this peel. Have used it for about 8 years and I don't get breakouts like I did just the occasional spot and it clears the pores that get congested. Makes them less apparent. Love it.

Papaya enzyme peel
This product is amazing. Smells gorgeous, is pretty good value for money considering a little goes a long way and it works. My skin feels so smooth afterwards. My skin can be sensitive but this doesn't cause breakouts or dryness. I feel much better knowing its a natural product and it feels like your really pampering yourself when you use this product. Would recommend!

I am a beauty therapist and this is the best exfoliater. I have congested skin and it keeps it under control. A little goes a long way so don't need to use to much. Makes your skin feel so smooth after.

Had a facial with this dreamy mask
I recently had a facial wherein this product was used. Boy did it smell great but beyond that it was so effective at just polishing and buffing my skin and getting is ready for my night regimen. I have also used on my elbows as those areas are really dry, parched and sometimes get forgotten. Please try this peel.

Love this product
I received this product in my #FabFitFun box, and I love it. It's a lovely texture, like a thick lotion. My skin always feels so soft and moisturized after I use this. Five stars.

This product smells so good! I would absolutely love a skin cream or body lotion with this exact scent. The peel is so gentle on my sensitive skin and has definitely improved the texture and appearance of my face.

Still trying this out
I have combination skin and prone to blemish. I've been trying the balance skin care regimen and it works wonders! Love it. I was advised to try out the papaya peel as well as my exfoliator but each time I have used it, I appear to breakout. It might be a coincidence as I love all the Elemis products I've tried so far but I wanted to ask the team. Is this common? Shall I stop using it or was this just a coincidence. thanks

I tried a sample years ago and forgot how good this is... perfect for more mature skin. But I've been advised to still use a proper exfoliator once a week.
I put a little on my under-brow eye area and face ... so soft after short amount of time !!! ????

Not sure how much to use each time... Size of a 50p coin? Or less?
