50% and 70% Glycolic Acid Peel
Advisor to buyers: When researching these acidic peels, look for "buffered" and "unbuffered". Unbuffered is 100% pure and not diluted with water; buffered is diluted. Physicians use buffered.I purchased the 70% unbuffered about 9 months ago because I wanted quicker results. I have terribly dry skin on my hands and arms. My skin is so dry that it took 3 applications of 70% strength for a real peeling effect to begin. Even after the initial peel, you will continue to get small flakes later on. A bonus is that it removes age spots (I’m 56). To keep the spots from returing, use sun screen on your hands and use a peel once every month or so. I also use the 50% unbuffered on my face. This stings so I don’t use the 70% at all! Also, don’t use perfumed lotions on skin you are peeling because it will sting, burn and itch.I consider myself an "expert" because I had professional chemical peels for years in my 30-40’s (paid $90 per visit), so I was confident I could do this myself. And I did!
Good exfoliating product–you can tell it’s working!
The seller I purchased this from included some helpful instructions on how to apply and remove this product. It wouldn’t have occurred to me to use a baking soda & water solution to rinse off the acid with after the time was up!I have sensitive skin and mild psoriasis and was able to leave this product on for the full 5-10 minutes recommended without problems. I did not notice any unpleasant sude effects like redness or tenderness. I did notice a couple days after use that there is a small amount of flaking around my nose and chin, where I applied the product (with a cotton ball & my fingertips) a bit heavier.I understand that glycolic and lactic acid are the most successful when it comes to gently exfoliating the skin! While I’ve only used this product a couple of times since purchasing it, I expect to see more benefits with longer-term usage.
Gives great results
My skin is very tough and I left this on for the full ten minutes. I had some slight peeling about 2 days later and my skin was soft and smooth. I’m trying to fade some melasma spots and after one use I would say they are about 30 percent lighter. I’m sure after several uses the spots will be nearly gone. This is very strong and not for people new to peeling.
I like this product it is not as strong as the TCA peel from Obsession. However this is a mild peel and if you don’t want as severe of a peel as TCA, use this one. I have both peels and I used this one when I don’t want a deep peel. it ships fast and comes with good instructions
This one was a little too strong for me. I going back to the 40%. But I love this company! I will always use it for my peels as well as the follow up care products.
