Skin Regime Boot Camp Book/Peel Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. This post contains Amazon Affiliate links. 

I read The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I also received the facial peel for review. You can see my skin after trying the peel above. The book was written by Dana Ramos and published by Verve Publications.

The Book:

The book teaches you how to improve your skin condition within weeks. The book consists of 6 sections:

  1. Introduction
  2. Boot Camp
  3. Maintenance
  4. Enjoying your new skin
  5. Beyond the skin regime
  6. The rest of your body. 

The first chapter discusses The Skin Regime. Ramos discusses why she wrote the book and issues with more expensive skin peels. She also discusses her skin story.

Next, chapter two discusses starting your The Skin Regime.  The chapter peels: what are they?; testing peels; do's and don'ts; items to use during a peel (rough wash cloths; moisturizer; alcohol, witch hazel, or peel prep; gentle soap, cotton balls, etc). Second, the chapter discusses how to use a peel.

Third, chapter three discusses skin maintenance. Some of the topics include prescription creams and acne.

Fourth, chapter 4 discusses make-up. Topics include foundation, blushes, bronzer, primers, BB products, CC products, eyes, dark circles, and lip care.

Chapter 5 includes topics such as face-lifts, fillers, lasers, and liposuction. Finally, Chapter 6 includes topics such as hair, arms, legs, and elbows. One thing I learned is you can use facial moisturizer on the entire body. You don't have to use moisturizer on your face and a lotion on the rest.

The Peel:

I never tried a peel before and wanted to try one out. You can layer the peel (maximum four layers) depending on your skin needs and type. The peel does contain alcohol

Ingredients: (directions included on this page too).

  • Purified water
  • SD Alcohol 40B (natural)
  • Mandelic Acid
  • Trichloroacetic Acid
  • Glycolic Acid
  • Salicylic Acid
  • Resorcinol
  • Pomegranate Extract
  • Lactic Acid
  • Sodium PCA
  • Urea
  • Inositol
  • Sodium Benzoate
  • Niacinamide
  • Sodium Lactate


Follow the directions. Well try too. I didn't see the one, where it said, don't try the peel if you are nursing. 

  1. First, wash your face with a rough wash cloth and your favorite cleaner or soap. This helps exfoliate the skin.
  2. Second, grab a bottle of alcohol, witch hazel, or peel prep. Rub on your face to remove excess oils. I wonder if my oil wipes would work as well. 
  3. Let your face completely dry. 
  4. Apply the peel to your face. Do not pass over the same spot twice. 
  5. Leave the peel on for a few minutes and wash your face.
  6. Apply moisturizer. 
  7. Don't apply another peel to your face for seven days.
