LING Skincare’s SparkLing Instant DIY O2 Facial Kit is our #1 pick for achieving instant, professional-level facial results at home. In 2 easy steps, the SparkLing kit provides immediate firmer and brighter skin, all in under 10 minutes

The SparkLing Kit blends safe ingredients to effectively detox and rejuvenate your skin. Hyaluronic Acid provides long lasting hydration to alleviate dry skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Oxygen strengthens skin’s elasticity, eliminates acne-causing bacteria, evens out skin tone, and diminishes pores. Other ingredients such as rose water deeply cleanse pores, and elastin and collagen help firm skin to prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

Ling Chan, the founder of LING Skincare, has over 40 years experience in skincare and runs a successful day spa in NYC. Since the ’80s, several celebrities have gotten LING facials, including Naomi Campbell, Meg Ryan, Alexander Wang, Renee Zellweger, Mariah Carey, and Madonna. The SparkLing Kit was inspired by her legendary facial, which is featured in 5-star luxury resorts across the world!

Even as certain states lift previous restrictions on spa and salon services, we feel no need to go back to the spa now that we’ve discovered this product! We couldn’t believe how great our skin looked after just one use! If you’re looking to reverse signs of aging, clear blemishes, detox pores, and renew your skin, at under $8 per facial, the SparkLing Kit seriously can’t be beat!

#2 Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Peel

User Ratings

4/5

8.8

Overall Ranking

B +

The Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Peel 2-step treatment gently exfoliates and smoothes skin for a more radiant appearance. Although it’s a ‘daily’ peel, our skin quickly dried out and got flaky when we used this product every day. We found that using this peel at night a few times a week really helped even out our skin, but it didn’t do much to help minimize the appearance of pores. When I went a week without using this product, my skin freaked out and broke out.

THE BOTTOM LINE

This peel from Dr. Dennis Gross is super gentle and effectively smoothes the skin. If you’re like me and struggle to follow a consistent skincare regimen, you might want to consider other products on this list.

#3 Volition Beauty Apple Cider Vinegar Resurfacing Peel Pads

Overall Ranking

B

Volition Beauty Apple Cider Vinegar Resurfacing Peel Pads is a daily peel that exfoliates,  brightens, and tones the skin. We were hesitant to try this product at first because we thought the vinegar might irritate our skin. For me, it was refreshing and felt like a good detox! Some of the other women who have more sensitive skin experienced redness. Other women couldn’t get past the strong vinegar smell.

B

The All-In-One Facial – Starter from Hanacure is a multi-action treatment designed to remove impurities and improve skin’s complexion. After using it our skin felt firmer and was glowing. It even helped smooth out some of my wrinkles on my face! Although I was pleased with the results, I was disappointed that this one-time facial cost $30.

C +

The SK-II Facial Treatment Mask offers a cool, calming sensation while moisturizing the skin. Every time we used this product, our skin immediately felt smoother and looked brighter. For the price, we were expecting a bit more than what we got. Our biggest frustration was the facial mask cutouts- they didn’t match up with our faces, making it difficult to fully relax.
