Aloette’s Restorative Enzyme Peel is similar to Ice Elements 2 minute miracle exfoliation gel, but it does not quite hit the mark.
While Aloette’s Restorative Enzyme Peel is a gentle, hydrating peel that gives results, it does not break down as nice as the Ice Elements version. The Restorative Enzyme Peel also does not pull up enough dead surface skin cells and seems to clump up instead of ball up, like the 2 Minute Miracle.
I base this on the use of a full jar of the Restorative Enzyme Peel and a full jar of the 2 Minute Miracle. While I noticed the differences right away, I wanted to give the product a fair shot. I was curious about the performance and got a great deal so I went all in.
I am also not crazy about the two color additives, blue 1 and yellow 5, that Aloette added to their product. The Ice Elements version has zero added colors and has a nicer color overall without them. Personally, it wouldn’t bother me what color the product came out to be if it worked and the added colors are not necessary… plus if I am going to bother to color a product, which would be an attempt to make it look more appealing I would assume, am I going to make it look like Slime? I think not.
If the lesser performance and unneeded additives were not enough to move me away from this product, the price of the Restorative Enzyme Peel is almost twice as much as that of the 2 Minute Miracle.
I will pass on this product on go for the one that is cheaper, a better performer and has no added colors.
