Sign in here if you're using GA, SA, LA, or MA, or indeed some new hardcore A with a mellow melt and searing sizzle. smile <-- 80s-stylee

WeesaD Mon 23-Apr-12 14:28:25

Takes more than the Daily Wail to scare me!

cocolepew Mon 23-Apr-12 17:34:59

Do you have to peel? I haven't yet. Am I missing something <worries>

Toughasoldboots Mon 23-Apr-12 17:42:25

Waiting for my GA and SA to arrive. Going to freestyle until it all goes wrong.

Going for professional GA peel in 3 weeks (been invited) then will decide whether to do course 2 in GA or LA

cybbo Mon 23-Apr-12 19:39:19

coco I havent peeled or flaked at all yet- might do number 4 tonight

Am on a roll- just dyed grey roots too

toot toot!

cocolepew Mon 23-Apr-12 19:43:06

Dark patch very much lighter, I've realised I need to put vaseline on any darker spots before I spray tan my face, Duh!

I need to do my roots too, I can't be bothered...

Because I think I'm getting bloody Shingles again!

<walks off muttering>

cocolepew Mon 23-Apr-12 19:43:40

Good news is my hair growing is going excellent grin

sobenobu Mon 23-Apr-12 19:56:20

Oh, has the DM been sourcing stories on mumsnet....again?
What's been said?
Am waiting for a DC-free few minutes to dissolve away my character (grey skin).

TheWisdomOfSolomum Mon 23-Apr-12 20:12:10

Just checking in to stalk follow Season et al.

I've only done my first peel, but looking forward to my next. So much in fact, that I've had to hide the bottle.

DoUntoOtters Mon 23-Apr-12 22:04:22

Me too, Solomum. I did my first sizzle - GA 30% - on Friday.

Have I really got to wait a whole week for the next one? Are any of you doing it more frequently?

cybbo Mon 23-Apr-12 22:08:16

Poor you coco

Dounto- we waited about 5 days inbetween. Some of us 3

Some loon did it daily

TheWisdomOfSolomum Mon 23-Apr-12 22:11:01

On the other thread, some posters said they were doing the peels with more frequency.

I, however, am a coward and shall try my best to stick to the rules. Patience isn't my strong point though.

Love the name btw smile

MrsBovary Mon 23-Apr-12 22:11:50

Just marking place.

I did my first sizzle yesterday, GA 30%, 3 mins. I think I can see a slight difference after using, my skin is definitely smoother, and am looking forward to doing my next peel on Sunday.

TheWisdomOfSolomum Mon 23-Apr-12 22:12:21

Daily?! shock

I am truly a lightweight.

MrsBovary Mon 23-Apr-12 22:13:46

I'm going to leave a seven day gap, but I do plan to use my Liquid Gold as ususal tomorrow.

TheWisdomOfSolomum Mon 23-Apr-12 22:13:47

Isn't it funny how we are all counting down the days til we can melt our faces? grin

Thetokengirl Mon 23-Apr-12 22:16:24

Did my first GA 30% on Sat for 3 mins.
Not convinced that my wrinkles are any less visible, but my skin just looks better. I'm going for the cowards way and waiting for a week before doing it again. grin
