Amore Pacific’s Treatment Enzyme Peel sounds like an intimidating skincare product, but it’s actually one of my favorite gentle go-to’s thats safe for sensitive skin and works as one of the best anti-aging facial scrubs I’ve tried.
Perfect for all skin types, including those with sensitive and acne-prone skin, it can be used daily to gently exfoliate the skin and treat signs of dullness, dryness, and uneven tone and texture. It’s also an advanced anti-aging formula, which over time helps treat signs of wrinkles, fine lines, loss of elasticity and firmness, sun spots or damage, and pigmentation issues.
Amore Pacific has always been one of my go-to K-beauty skincare lines known for advanced anti-aging products that actually work, feel incredible to use on the skin, and are extremely gentle (for those with very sensitive skin).

Amore Pacific products are naturally formulated and lack any harmful ingredients or chemicals that can damage your skin.

Review: Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel
Amore Pacific’s Treatment Enzyme Peel is a 2.5 oz gentle daily exfoliating peel designed to treat signs of dull skin for any skin tone, provide deep exfoliating benefits, and even out the skins tone and texture. It also supports preventative and advanced anti-aging benefits with use over time and leaves you with a smooth complexion.
In the facial scrub category, this is both the gentlest and the most effective product I have tried to date, and the skin is left feeling silky soft and smooth after even a single treatment.
This facial scrub goes beyond your typical brightening and clarifying face scrub, and not only leaves the skin feeling baby smooth, it genuinely erases signs of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead area as well as treating signs of sun damage, acne scarring, dark spots, and pigmentation issues.
While it is a bit of a splurge, this is one item I always feel is worth every penny and so little product is needed per use that it really goes the distance.
While face scrubs in general right now are trending, it’s really challenging to find one that can actually produce visible benefits without leaving your skin feeling tight, stretched, uncomfortable, red, or generally irritated, especially if you’re sensitive.
When you’re sensitive and/or prone to acne and in need of the perfect scrub at the same time, Amore Pacific’s Treatment Enzyme Peel is one skincare product that works so well it’s difficult to put a price sticker on it.

How To Use Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel
- After using your regular cleansing treatment, moisten your face and hands
- Add a small amount of powder with water and work into a creamy lather
- Massage into face for 30-45 seconds, and rinse off with warm water
*You may use this as a gentle daily facial scrub treatment or opt to use this as a 3 times a week treatment, or even as a weekly treatment, it all depends on personal preference and what works best for you, I used this about twice per week and saw great results while saving product at the same time*

Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel: Worth It Winner?
When you’re in need of a gentle get extremely effective exfoliating scrub that can be used daily (if desired), Amore Pacific’s Treatment Enzyme Peel is definitely a worth it for its price winner for use.
Out of all of the different treatment products and facial scrubs I have experimented with on the market, none have outperformed Amore Pacific’s Enzyme Peel in terms of anti-aging benefits with use, and it’s also extremely safe and gentle for even the most sensitive skin or those with acne or acne-prone skin types.
Not only is skin fully resurfaced, brightened, and more even in tone, texture, and radiance, it feels incredibly soft, smooth, and dewy immediately after use.
While it is not cheap or a drugstore brand type price option, it feels like it is worth every penny, simply due to how your skin changes within days and weeks after you start using it.
Refreshing, light, detoxifying, and dewy are the perfect terms to describe the main effects.
But I’ve also never had a facial treatment scrub provide so many benefits that left my skin looking visibly more youthful.
