An appealing Peel.

Ok pun’s set aside. I had been rebuffed by not one but 3 different dermatologists over the past 15 years when I wanted something done about sun damage to my face, arms and legs. Especially the two large spots on one calf. One gave me an expensive laser treatment for veins around the mouth and nose area he said was also caused by sun damage. (I did field research work for about 20 years and that was up to 14 hours 24/7 from May thru October. I used tons of sunscreen folks and ignored the ribbing…from folks who should know better with several collegues having skin cancer.)Anyway I first tried Glycolic peels for my face with great results getting rid of not only sun spotting age like spots but some raised and crusty material associated with one bad mark. But didn’t touch the leg spots at all. Neither did Salicylic Acid at 20% but liked that for my face and forearms along with Glycolic Acid. So bought this Lactic Acid to apply to the stubborn leg spots and looks like it’ll take a couple of months but I’m seeing actual results. Haven’t used on my face or arms yet. I intend to give my arms a trial run while it’s still winter. And maybe just an over all peel or two on my face but my main objective was and is the two stubborn sun damage on my leg…..because they are about 2-3 inches apart vertically from each other it makes it more distinquished and they are about the size of a nickle each. So happy with the product. Have a ways to go but even if it didn’t go any further still a huge improvement. Would recommend product for similar but it is pretty strong so caution is needed. Do a skin test or two before proceeding with any acid peel type product. I’ve been burned with retinol and it’s taken weeks to heel my face so approaching carefully makes sense. Also all our skin types are different. I’ve been senstive to many soaps and dial soap in the 70’s adverstised safe enough for baby skin would burn my face and give me rash. To this day I do not use dial soap but my husband prefers it. Never understood why I couldn’t handle one thing but another was fine…seems these peels are the same for a variety of people. Some they don’t work as well either. I am leaving it on up to 10 minutes as the max that’s recommended by the company. I would back off that for my face however. And I’d apply a thin layer of vaseline or aloe on lips, nose, eye area too as an added protection to sensitive skin. Good luck to all who need these types of products may you have results at last.

Face was bright

I have bought peels from this company for years. First off,they always arrive early and NEVER had any issues with them. Second, I think this is probably the best peel around. It brightens the skin especially for someone like me who suffers from acne and use’s harsh products. This is the peel. I have been using this for years (and used other ones too) and by far, this is it. Great product. Great company.

UGH!

Not only did this do NOTHING for me after 7 months (followed directions 100%), but it STINKS. It smells like sour milk. I would actually take a deep breath when applying this because it smells so badly. I tried and I tried, for seven months, hoping the results would outweigh the stink. I’m not sure how people are getting these amazing results. Take a look at the other reviews, and click on “see all reviews by this person”, that helps in determining if someone is just padding the rating.

Got Red Bumps on my face

Am I ALLERGIC to this stuff??Just to be extra careful, since this was “70%”, I tried it just on ONE side of my face (left). The next day I had a bunch of little red bumps on my face (left side).Here it is, a month later, and the little red bumps are still there!I will NOT use this again.Edit:It is now April 12. I have been waiting since February for these red bumps to go away. They are s-l-o-w-l-y- diminishing.Clearly, something is wrong. Either I’m allergic to this stuff or it’s just too strong for my face. Definitely going in the trash. No 2nd chances on this one!Edit: April 26, 2013My original review was written in 2012.This is an update (a YEAR later).I would NOT recommend this product for several reasons:#1-The left side of my facial skin is messed up. Skin tone is very uneven compared to the RIGHT side, which was NOT treated with this product.#2-The “red” bumps I referred to in my original review NEVER went away. Instead of “red” bumps, I now have mild skin discoloration. Although the bumps are not “red”, what’s the point of using a peel, if the “marks” left on your face are darker than the rest of your facial skin.#3-On my left cheek, I now have something — I have no clue what it is, but it looks like melasma. As a result, I now have to try to get rid of that.I am staying with “natural” products.No more chemicals for me.No thanks!BTW, I am NOT saying this will happen to you. I’m just reporting what happened to me.Keep in mind, everyone’s skin is different.

It helped my stubborn, resistant hyper-pigmentation!

I started out with the 50% Lactic Acid peel, which helped fade my melasma a little, then I moved on to this one.The first time I tried this peel, I started with a one minute application. I had mild tingling but nothing extreme. I added 1 min each time until I was doing 4 minutes. I noticed more subtle improvements on my face each time and continued to be impressed with these peels. Lactic acid has a wonderfully moisturizing effect that leaves your skin so soft and smooth the next morning.I’ve struggled with stubborn, resistant hyper-pigmentation (melasma) around my eyes for years. I tried countless products that seemed to work for others but did not work for me. Only photofacials had been able to remove it but it returned with the slightest bit of sun (hyper-active melanocytes) so photofacials were just too expensive for a temporary solution. These peels, week by week, (and a gradual increase in strength, along with a combination of other products I have listed on my profile), slowly faded them. As I moved on to stronger peels, its now 95% gone. It will still occasionally come back when I have a run in with the sun but it fades away again.The company has a lot of information on their website and are very responsive so I continue to buy from them.NOTES ON PEELS:-Don’t do it more often than they recommend. They recommend you do it every so often for a reason. Your skin has to have time to heal and develop new skin before you strip it away again.-You HAVE to wear sunblock. Your skin is more exposed and vulnerable to damage from sun. Protect it. If you don’t you are canceling out or even reversing your progress. I like this one,Ole Henriksen Protect the Truth Sunscreen SPF 50+-1.7 oz. Its not the best moisturizer but as a sunblock, its great. Its my favorite because its hard to find high spf that doesn’t leave a white haze, smell funky or make your eyes tear up.-When you are doing your peels, make sure you start with a clean DRY face, water will dilute the acid in your peel. I am wondering if thats why some people did not see any results. I wash my face, swipe it with alcohol on a cotton ball to remove any leftover oils and to help dry it. Wait 10-15 minutes, then apply the peel.-Use a fan brush like this oneTaklon Fan Mask Brush Acid Applicator for Glycolic Lactic TCA Skin Peel / Masques (Small). Mine has lasted over a year. You can use cotton balls/squares but I think they absorb product so you will waste some and get less peels out of your bottle.-Watch your face when the peel is on. The recommended time is a guideline, everyones skin is different and reacts differently. Thats why they recommend you start slow. Some are ok 1 min the first time, others the full 4 min. Once your skin starts looking pinkish, its time to remove. If it gets red, you’ve gone too long.-Make sure you wash off ALL of the acid. Wash, rewash, wash again. I like to shower right after to make sure its all gone. Any leftover acid will continue to work its way into your skin. I like to use a post peel neutralizer as an extra precaution. MD Formulations had a post peel neutralizer that was AWESOME but they don’t sell it individually. I am trying this oneNeutralizer skin pH balancer helps balance the pH of your skin for the safe and effective neutralization after peeling.. It works but I am still trying to find one more like the MD formulations one. You pour onto cotton ball and sweep your face right after peel, then wash it off with water. You can also mix your own neutralizer using baking soda and water.-Moisturize after. This one has been my favorite to use after,Hydrating Repair Peptide Wrinkle Cream (Post Peel) – Enhanced with Matrixyl 3000, Argireline, Hyaluronic Acid & Natural Botanical Extracts. I also use it as a night cream. Very moisturizing and doesn’t feel greasy or leave a residue.

Fabulous product!

I ordered this product after doing tremendous research. The first time I used it, I didn’t ‘feel’ much going on, but my skin did peel a bit during the first week. The second time I used it, my skin tingled quite a bit and turned reddish, and my skin broke out. I think it was the impurities coming to the surface. The next couple of weeks I used the product weekly and continued to break out a bit. Now my skin is clear and my complexion is unbelievable! I was a bit skeptical when I began using the product, but I persisted, remembering that when I would have facials (professional) I was told I’d break out first and then clear up.I would highly recommend this product. I tend(ed) to break out on a continual basis, worsening during my menstrual cycles, including cystic acne. I rarely form blackheads at all now that I use this product regularly, which means nothing blocking/clogging my pores. In fact, although pores do not actually shrink, my formerly large-appearing pores are less pronounced and look smaller to me.

Fruit Fiesta Peel takes years off my skin!

I am 40 with mixed oily and dry/wrinkled skin. The fruit fiesta peel (used alternatively with the pumpkin peel) has taken years off my appearance, reduced wrinkles, eliminated blackheads, and has pretty much eliminated acne breakouts. It burns a bit (which means it’s working). I use it 1-2 times per week and the pumpkin peel 1-2 times per week.This product is 100% natural, smells delicious, and my skin glows and looks so fresh and new after I wash it off!

Broke Me Out…

I have combination skin and usually have no problem with peels or enzyme masks of any kind. However, this broke me out terribly after using it. I tried it several times to see if my skin was just “purging” but my skin always had the same reaction. I am really sad because I had high hopes for this product line because it seemed to have great reviews, but I am continually unimpressed each time I try something by them. Perhaps it is because they have changed their formulas and are using cheaper ingredients? I’m not sure. All I know is this one does not work for me.

My skin no longer tolerates this…

I used this for about a year and it was pretty good. I always seemed to get a few breakouts after, but overall it gave my skin a nice soft feeling and made it glow. I would use this for about 3 minutes once a week. I’m not sure if my skin has just become more sensitive, but the last time I used it I got a horrible break out reaction. Maybe I left it on too long? Not sure, but I won’t be purchasing this again. I think it’s just too harsh. I am now going to try FarmHouse Fresh Splendid Dirt pumpkin mask and see if that is better suited to my skin.Overall I have used a few MyChelle products and I usually have the same reaction; they work great for the few few uses and then my skin reacts to it. I have read that they changed their ingredients, perhaps that’s what’s up. I would recommend this mask to those who do NOT have sensitive skin, but for those who do, probably best to stay away from this one.

Glowing baby soft skin!!

I used the lactic acid peel full strength to give myself a facial peel after a particularly long day at work. I received this product in the mail today and when I got home I had to open it right away and test it out. I absolutely love this stuff. I left it on my face without dilution for about four minutes before I started getting scared about causing a burn, which I had previously experienced around the delicate mouth area with glycolic acid. This peel hardly burned at all, however. I used the fan brush included with the acid to apply after washing my face and applying toner. I noticed right away that this acid has a strong odor, but it’s not unbearable. Also, it has a thick consistency unlike salicylic acid and glycolic acid. I was surprised to discover that lactic acid is actually very mild even at 88%, but I have read that. Anyway…after I neutralized and rinsed, when I looked into the mirror I was sooo impressed. My skin is *ridiculously* soft, smooth and it glows. Unlike with other chemical peels it did not make my skin rough feeling, which I understand is by virture of the fact that there is no "downtime" with lactic acid. My face looks very clean and feels refreshed. I moisturized heavily with hyaluronic acid, royal jelly and Vaseline intenseive repair lotion to keep the skin hydrated and supple. I love it!I bought this product with the main intent of giving myself a full body peel, which I’ll try on a later date. In the mean time I mixed some of the acid with my regular body lotion without diluting it and slathered it all over my body. Like I said, this stuff kinda stinks so I’ll be sleeping with it on and washing it off in the morning. The immediate results were just as satisfying: incredibly soft skin. I can’t wait to try this as a chemical peel for my entire body…

High powered and wonderful!!!

Be very careful with this stuff if you’re a newbie to chemical peels! It literally took off all the sun damage junk from my face and I have had several compliments since healing. It did burn the outer layers of skin off, so I used a triple antibiotic ointment for a few days afterward and peeled like mad for about 5 days. It was so worth it! Follow the directions and if you notice any bubbling of the skin, neutralize immediately! (baking soda and water did the trick) Can’t wait for my next go round with this peel! I have to wait for a few events we have to go to, then I’ll be back at it. I can’t say enough about how wonderful I feel after using this peel. It literally took 10 years off! Yay!!!

This is great!

I highly recommend this peel. My skin is anything but sensitive, and even i could barely leave it on for 10 minutes, because it burns really bad, but thats what we want right? It gives me a decent peel when i use it 3 days in a row (about 10 minutes each time). The peel lasts for over a week. I only did it twice so its too soon to talk about results. Also i apply it for two mins twice a week and really like it, my face feels so fresh and smooth. This small jar will last for ever too, you only need a little bit each time you use it.

This stuff WORKS!!!

I did not expect this tiny little jar to pack such a punch. I applied a thin layer and left it for 5 minutes when I first got it. The next day my skin felt a little dry so I sprayed some Hyaluronic acid and went my way. The day after this….MAJOR peeling. My face looked like I was shedding from a spa facial. I was annoyed at first but then impressed. I only use it every two weeks now due to this but, it leaves your skin feeling and looking awesome. I will continue to buy..Remember not to scrub or wipe your face harshly for a few days after a peel or you will damage your skin.

Great texture, pleasant odor!

I love that this product now comes in dropper form, which makes measuring and dispensing the product much easier! It almost has a very slight ‘brown sugar’ type odor (which I love), and the gel like consistency makes it easy to apply to the face. I use it before bedtime, and wake up to even skin tone, a glowing complexion, and very soft skin. I have used most all of the products that Dr Song sells- very good products and affordable too!

Skin Obsession’s 85% Lactic Acid peel is a powerful tool to help fight the signs of aging, with little to no down time like other peels can cause. This is a quick, easy and safe peel for both the novice and experienced peeler. It gives skin a smooth even texture while improving skin tone and over time it helps smooth fine lines and sun damage. Ideal for all skin types, even sensitive skin types. Our 85% Lactic Acid is a flash peel, it is only left on the skin for a couple of minutes and then neutralized, and is perfect for the first time peeler. It is great for mature skin types as it shows strong activity in stimulating collagen under your skin, which helps smooth out those fine lines and creates a more plump look to your skin. This peel is done once or twice a week and has no down time and no peeling. You can go out right after using it. Remember though, even though this is a great starting peel, it is still a strong, professional strength peel (pH 1) and should be used only as directed. As with all products, a patch test is recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel. We include easy to follow instructions along with a free sample of our best selling Microdermabrasion crystals. We are committed to bringing you top quality skin care products at prices everyone can afford, backed by great customer service. 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.

Oh this works!

I am a big believer in exfolliation with non over the counter products. But this IS ACID and if not used correctly will burn. I worked my way up to this strength. I use it every few weeks and just leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly. I also never leave the bathroom sink and keep a bottle of baking soda/water as a neutralizer if I get into trouble. I recommend you work your way up to this strenght and do a skin patch test on the inner fold of the elbow bend where the skin is thin and you can guage your reaction. Also afterward, I drown my face in serums, creams and nutients to speed the repair.

Excellent no-down time peel to keep skin clear and …

First, I want to say I’ve always received exceptional customer service from Skin Obsession. Products arrive fast and packaged well. Rare mistakes are always corrected as repeat business seems to be very important to the sellers.I buy three products regularly. One of them is the 85 percent Lactic Acid peel.The Lactic acid is not a peel in which one will see a lot of peeling. In fact, if used right, you should not experience what we call down time. You really shouldn’t see much more than some flaking, if even that. It will depend, of course, on how much exfoliation your already do.No overt peeling or flaking doesn’t mean it is not working.The Lactic acid peel is primary for 1) keeping skin tone even — getting rid of discoloration from anything, acne, sun damage and 2) to keep your skin decongested, which lets it absorb other products much better. Lactic acid works over time, though you don’t see it. Most people should be able to use this every week or two weeks, and over time you will notice the difference in skin tone and overall healthier looking. Lactic acid is part of a maintenance program but not like TCA, where you go through dramatic peeling. Lactic acid compliments to other acid peels. Clear skin, even toned, will be a better pallet to put on make-up.The type of peel more a faster, more aggressive approach is a TCA peel. Depending on how much exfoliation you already do and where you are in a skin regimen, you can get a 12 percent, or 25 percent. Some go even higher. I use a 25-percent TCA peel three times a year. Boy, that is the downtime peel. I have snake-peeled, which is good. You want to give yourself two weeks to hide.The other product I love is the Emu oil. For me personally, it’s one of the few oil moisturizers I have used right after a peel that doesn’t clog pores. I only use the emu oil after a peel, for about four days. It’s a heavy moisturizing, of course, it is an oil.Like all peels, the most important thing is a good prep. Using a sunscreen religiously is the cheapest and best thing you can ever do for your skin, and gentle exfoliation whether with a rough facecloth or microdermabrasion crystals is good.I am only a customer of Skin Obsession, but I’ve bought these products from them for almost four years. I cannot speak to any other than Lactic or TCA peels or Emu oil. But I can say that you this company is of the few who will actually communicate with customers before and after the purchase.

Gives a nice glow

A little bit about me. I’ve always taken care of my skin since I was 25. I am now close to 59. I was a sun worshiper in my teens and younger. I stopped laying in the sun when I was 21. I got serious about skin care after that. I was a fan of infomercials so had bought various skin care lines and signed up for automatic shipments every month. I’ve always had people complement me on a nice complexion. They always thought I was alot younger than my real age.The age spots started around the age of 55. I really thought I had prevented them, however I didn’t. My dermatologist told me I have that kind of skin where they could come back. I have a receding hairline so the spots were there and spots close to my ear and my temple. They were easy to hide with makeup. However I was always self conscious about them.I tried my first skin peel from another site about a year and half ago. 50% glycolic acid. It gave my skin a nice glow and it erased my raised age spots. However it didn’t erase the other flat spots that I had. Skin Obsession also gives me a great glow. I did have another raised age spot which Skin Obsession got rid of. It took away one of the spots by my temple (also raised a bit)I was happy with the nice glow to my complexion. Like many other reviews it does sting after you apply it.However I believe I need a stronger skin peel next time. I hear about people having peels where their skin actually peels off. Maybe that will be the one that will do the trick. I would buy another peel from Skin Obsession.

A Great Peel that Gives Results!

My skin had really worsened after all those tanning sessions at the beach. Wrinkles and brown-spots were really evident on one side of my face that made my face look weird and unsymmetrical. I had previously used expensive creams and masks, but to no avail; they showed minimal or no results at all.Then a friend of mine recommended gel peels to me and I did a quick Amazon search on them. They turned up quite a few results but thanks to the overwhelmingly positive reviews on this Perfect-Image product, I went for it and I wasn’t disappointed.After only two application (I use this once a week), my skin looked noticeably even-toned, bright and young. I would really recommend this peel to all those who are suffering from hyper-pigmentation.A few notes of advice:> ALWAYS do a patch test on an inconspicuous area of your skin before actually applying the product to your face. It is better than having a lobster-red face and spending a few hundred bucks at a dermatologist.> Always use an alcohol-prep pad before application, it increases penetration.> When the peel is at work you will feel a stinging sensation throughout the area it is applied upon. To mollify it, sit with your face facing up, towards a fan.> After you have washed your skin don’t towel-dry the remaining water. Allow it to evaporate and cool your skin.> Use a good moisturizer afterwards.Suave Cocoa & Shea Butter Body Lotionreally worked for me.> Use a SPF 30+ sunscreen WHENEVER you go out in the sun! These peels render your skin sensitive to the sun’s rays and you may end up with worse skin if you fail to follow this.

THIS PRODUCT WORKS!

Around 10 years ago, i had a bout of very serious adult acne. I went to a dermatologist and she gave me heavy duty cleanser and medication (both oral and topical) which made my skin very dry, thin and sensitive…and RAW!. I was told to be very careful and not to be out in the sun and to apply SPF at all time. I did not listen, well….i felt my skin sizzle under the sun…and literally within a month, i acquired all of the sun spots which i still have today. Please learn from my mistakes. Shield your skin from the sun as a normal practice and ESPECIALLY if you’re using harsh ingredients on your skin! i have tried many many many products that claims it will diminish sun spots but none worked UNTIL NOW…. This stuff works! You must read the directions and start out slow and listen to your skin.. The way i used it is I dab only on the sun spots (spot treat) once every 2-3 days and once per week i would treat the entire face. Because the spots itself was being treated more frequently, it would look red and scaly but once it heals, you will have lighter spots. The rest of your face feels like you’ve just had a nice microdermabrasion, very smooth and glowing. always listen to you skin/ It’s best to have gradual improvement than to be inpatient and mistreat your skin. The longest i’ve left the solution on is 7 minutes.. this is the 5 week that i’m using this. I still have all the spots but they are much much lighter. I will update again in another month or so on the results….Also want to add that i use SPF 15 lotions, then BB cream with SPF 42, and if i am out biking or hiking, i will add another layer of SPF 55…Also i forgot to add that after the peel treatment, i slather on coconut oil or olive oil…to help the skin heal and keep it moisturized.
