What Is a Peeling Gel?

Watch: These Gels Instantly Shed Dead Skin Right Off

Feel like watching your dead skin roll right off, much like a snake sheds his skin? Well, there's a gel for that.

Peeling gels are deceptive because they aren't peels, and they aren't masks. In fact, peeling gels are exfoliants. But they're sneaky in that they are not physical exfoliators. Instead, they utilize fruit enzymes, like pineapple and pomegranate, to dissolve dead skin cells, sloughing them right off. Unlike some scrubs or washes, however, you can literally see your dead skin peeling off. Sounds oddly gratifying, right? We put two to the test.
