Exuviance Performance Peel AP25
Good morning, class! Today we are looking at a product that I was provided for free, through Brand Backer, in exchange for my honest review. More specifically, we are talking about the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25.
The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is a Glycolic Acid Peel that is made to be safe and easy to use at home. It contains a 25% AHA/PHA blend that includes Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Gluconolactone. I’m just going to assume that I’ve spelled those words correctly. Anyway…these ingredients exfoliate dead, dull surface layers and encourage the process of cell renewal to reveal healthier cells (and consequently, healthier skin!)
The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 comes with 12 treatments, plus one test treatment. Since Exuviance recommends that the treatments be used twice weekly, this is a six week course of peels. As I mentioned, this peel is incredibly easy to use. After cleansing, you apply an “activator pad” all over your face. The worst part of this step is the smell. Luckily, the unpleasant odor does not last. You let the Activator Solution sit on your face for ten minutes (less if you feel discomfort) and then apply the Neutralizer Pad and rinse with water.
I made sure I had two weeks to work with the Exuviance Performance Peel before writing my review. I figured this would be an appropriate time frame in which I might begin to see some results. As you know, my concerns are less about fine lines and more about evenness of skin tone and smoothness of skin.
If you were going to see results, you’d see them on my cheeks. I have some discoloration from acne, so this is the perfect place to monitor.
OK, so I’m not convinced that the photos do the results justice. I honestly feel that the overall appearance of my skin is much more even and bright after using this peel for two weeks. Unfortunately, my awesome results have been marred by an incredibly unusual breakout. I do not believe that the blemishes are related to this treatment, but nonetheless, they make it hard to get a good photo! All in all, I would highly recommend this peel if you are looking for an easy-to-use treatment that yields quick results.
I will be sure to do a little update once I finish the course of twelve treatments. In the meantime, please let me know your favorite skin remedies, peels and treatments in the comments!
