“With regular use, the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is an ideal way to significantly reduce visible signs of aging, improve the texture of the skin, and create a better starting point for any in-office procedures my patients choose to pursue. It contains alpha hydroxy acids - the same peeling agents found in many office peels - but at a level with minimal recovery time. These peels are a safe and easy way for patients to exfoliate their skin and maintain a healthy-looking complexion in between office visits.” -Dr. Julie K.

My Review:

I have to say I have been using this product now for a little over a month and I can tell you that there are some really awesome things about it.  Let's get started.

It is a relatively easy system to use.  You use the first pad (marked clearly with a step 1) which is the peel, and swipe it over your entire face avoiding your eye area and you lips.  Then you let it sit for 10 minutes.  You want to pay attention, at least the first few times, to see how your skin reacts to the peel.  If you start to see yourself turn incredibly red or it starts to become unbearably itchy, then you will want to use the second pad (marked step 2) immediately to neutralize the acid.  If you turn a bit pink or feel sensation that is tolerable, then leave it on for 10 minutes.  Once you have neutralized the peel, you then want to rinse with cool water.

Now I have used 10 of the 12 pads that are in my kit.  You are supposed to use them twice a week.  I found by week 3 though, I was starting to experience some sensitivity.  It says you can use it on your face, chest, neck, hands, or anywhere that is exposed to sunlight.  But like with all peels you want to make sure you use an SPF when outdoors or your could cause severe burning.

Other than the sensitivity around my cheeks and on my neck, I really didn't have any issues.  It was simple to understand, it was easy to use, and it was effective.  Although I saw better results on my face than I did on my neck and chest.  Be sure that if you use the peel pads you use them as instructed, you will see the best results that way and you will also suffer less adverse reactions to the product.

The price point is decent at $75.00.  It breaks down to $6.25 per pad, which is better than most drug store peels.  But if you want a deeper peel with more effective results, you will still want to see and Estee and get it professionally done.  I would recommend this product without a hesitation.

I would give this 4 lipsticks out of 5.  It was a really good product with some pretty good results.
