What a difference it makes

This alpha beta peel and the Retin-A cream I use at night are the two skin care items I would not do without. I’ve been using it since 2009 when my sister-in-law, who had been using it for a while, let me try it. I saw results immediately. My skin was smoother and had more of a glow. Although the label says you might have a reaction at first, I didn’t. It’s like anything you use when you start to clean out your skin–sometimes it has to get worse before it can get better (similar to Retin-A). This is expensive stuff, but it works, unlike other products that claim to. Because of these products, I can save on moisturizers, etc. I am ALWAYS getting complimented on my skin, and I’m in my late 50’s! That never used to happen. I’m one of those adult-acne-prone people, and I’m not anymore since I started using the alpha beta peel. Recently I got a sample of the extra-strength version of this. I tried it without any problems, so I may start using it (it’s even more expensive :(). I never leave home without their travel packets; they’re great. I also wash with Dr. Dennis Gross’ All-in-One Facial Cleanser with Toner. This cleanser removes all makeup, including mascara (not sure about waterproof mascara, though) and never leaves my skin feeling tight. Plus I don’t have to buy and use toner–another step and cost. I also love their serums, but I use other brands, too (Boots No. 7, Origins). Their tinted moisturizer is great–really disappears on my skin, but I need to add additional moisturizer, especially in the winter.

Not worth the exorbitant price tag

For all the hype and hoopla, I found this product to be a real flop. It didn’t just fall short- it actually dried my skin out, made me peel and caused a breakout. I can honestly say my skin looked worse when I was using it than it had from any other product. You can get products with the same active ingredients for a quarter of the price anyway. They should be ashamed of themselves for charging so much.

BEST! – Your skin will look great instantly!

These have been my mainstay for years and you can’t go wrong. It is a quick 5 minute therapy that really works. My routine; each morning and night (if you are using for the first time – get 30 pads and use every 3 days, then 2 days, then 1 day – then get your 60 day pads for am/pm. You will look younger, pores smaller, lines are smaller. Use behind your ears, don’t forget your neck (back of the neck too ladies) and let it do its job. I did purchase the EVIS Red which I just received to help as well. I will let you know in a review by month.JanSimpson

Honest reviews


not bad, we’ll see how the whole box fares

Ordered these based on all the good reviews. I was very surprised at the small size of the box, surprised at the small size of each packet, and definitely surprised at how small each towelette was, not much different than a standard polaroid picture.The scent is fairly strong, like most self tanners. The product dried quickly before I went to bed, but the smell definitely lingered for awhile even after it dried. I woke up noticeably darker, but it wasn’t DARK. It gave me a nice glow, which is exactly what its supposed to do. One towelette was enough to cover my face, neck, chest, and shoulders. I didn’t have a single streak on my face. There were faint streaks on my shoulders, but they aren’t very noticeable.We’ll see how I like the whole box.Edit 4/22/13: I’ve used these several times now, and I’m always very pleased with the results. The pads give you noticeable color, but it’s not overwhelming. I like them!

Glowing skin

I bought this for my face but after one use, I will only use on my arms. When I used on my face it made all my unknown sunspots very dark and freaky. It was great for my arms, gave me a hint of color and no drying or stinky smell. A good product but you may think twice before putting on your face esp if you have white (Irish) sensitive skin. May work better for people that tan nicely.

Helena Susanville, CA

the product itself is 5 star!

this is a 5 star product hands down the best facial self tanner I have ever used in my life! I love the body towelettes too. It is always streakfree and flawless, you can apply moisturizer over it for extra evenness and so it comes out a little lighter, it is hydrating and leaves my skin so soft and smooth.* Has no scent and leaves no self tanner scent as it is developing* it is a clear formula so it wont stain your sheets and you can wear it out during the day without looking like you went rolling in the mudd* it actually does improve your skin.The only issue is when I ordered it from amazon I dont believe it sits in a temperature controlled warehouse so it sits in the heat and cold and the product is no good. The towels smelled really bad and they were brown, these arent fake pads if you notice the white ones you throw away after using them they turn dark brown after oxidizing in the air over night. It just isnt an item that amazon should be selling unless they can figure out a way to put it in a temperature controlled area.

Skin Obsession 40% Alpha Beta Combination Chemical Peel for Acne, Fine Lines & removes sun damage

The Skin Obsession 40% Alpha Beta Chemical peels can truly stop your acne outbreak in its tracks. The Beta component, Salicylic Acid, is a common treatment for acne, but we have increased the concentration to a more effective level than you can get over the counter. In addition, we have the second component, the Alpha Hydroxy acid: Glycolic acid, at 40%, which helps keep your skin exfoliated and fresh, preventing the ability of acne to form under the skin and in the pores. The next step up from our 30% Alpha Beta peel, this peel can retexturize the skin, restoring the radiance of your youth. These easy to use peels combine the benefits of both the AHA’s and BHA’s, with little to light peeling at the 40% concentration. These peels are repeated monthly and this kit provides enough peel solution for approximately 6 months worth of peels. I get a lot of questions about this, so I will clear up the confusion now: The steps are actually backwards from the name, the medical establishment named it, not me! So you will apply the Beta acid first (even though the beta is listed second in the name) and the Alpha Acid goes on 2nd (even though it is listed first in the name) The bottles are labeled Step one and Step 2, and that will match the directions you are given with the peel, use step 1 first and step 2 second. Hope this clears things up for those of you who are really curious about that kind of stuff! Your skin will feel softer, look smoother, with improved texture and tone and reduced hyperpigmentation (sun damage). Those are the differences on the surface of your skin. With a peel of this strength, a full course of peels (8-10 peels) are needed to see optimal results. We include easy to understand instructions, A patch test is required to determine sensitivity to the peel. By purchasing this product, you assume all risk associated with its use and are responsible for all results either intended or unintended from using this product.

Key features

  • Great acne treatment
  • Clears pores and evens skin tone
  • Easy to use and significant savings over professional treatments
  • Smooths fine lines and wrinkles
  • Free sample of Microdermabrason crystals included

Gave me severe acne

I really wanted this product to work, but it gave me even more acne! I used it yesterday and woke up to a face full of acne! I am not happy with this product at all. It hurt/burned so bad when I applied it on my face too.Edit: This product definitely did not work, at all. The horrible acne still did not go away!!!

Trudy Nelson, MO

Quality experience

received the product as advertised and on time. I like the product itself very much. It definitely cleared up some lingering acne I had not been able to get rid of.

Sue Bayamon, PR

A company and products that I have trusted for many years

I’ve used Skin Obsession products for a long time and it’s actually time to reorder this peel. Works quickly (between 5 and 10 minutes), doesn’t sting horribly (I’ve been doing this for about 5 years so I’m used to peeling), and doesn’t make me look like a zombie beauty queen for the next few days. My skin feels definitely smoother after use and it keeps my brown spots faded (but doesn’t get rid of them completely). I’m always pleased with the quality of their products.
