(Day 1 of Exuviance #PeelChallenge)
Okay, I guess I feel really comfortable with all of you because I’m bearing my clean face on the internet. Yikes! I have always been a “figure it out on my own” type of girl. I did not listen to my parents growing up about sunscreen. SPF? Pshh, that’s for losers right? Uhm, no. You should use it daily and all year round friends. I promise it’s worth it. Now that I’m older I am fighting the results of following my own rules. I have very uneven skin tone and dark spots as you can see. (Some are just freckles. 😉 )
I try all sorts of treatments from time to time, but I don’t follow through with them to see results. So, I was so excited when Exuviance decided to send me their Performance Peel AP25. Unlike peels at most dermatologist offices, this peel is gentle and does not leave you red and peeling for weeks on end. This is always my main concern when using peels, because I have very sensitive skin. Trust me, I’ve had procedures go wrong and I’ve been in hiding for days at a time. Ha!
The Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Gluconolactone. Performance Peel AP25 not only works at skin’s surface to exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, it also enhances cell renewal to reveal fresher, healthier-looking skin. If you use this regularly (up to 2x per week), this peel has been clinically proven to:
-Refine pore size and smooth texture
-Visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
-Improve clarity and brightness
-Brighten and even skin tone
-Provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin
This peel is very easy to use and can be used on face, back of hands, neck, chest and body. Follow these simple steps:
Make sure to cleanse your face with a gentle, effective cleanser before beginning. (I love Origins Checks and Balances– it helps keep acne at bay.)
-Apply a Step 1 Activator Pad over the entire face, avoiding eye area, lips and any area of sensitivity. Then discard pad. Carefully monitor the skin’s response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort, including stinging, burning, itching, tightness, tingling and peeling.
-Apply a Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face after 10 minutes, or sooner if you experience bothersome redness or discomfort. Apply over entire face (avoiding eyes and lips), and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.
After rinsing with water, it is also recommended to apply moisturizer. (Boscia Sake Balm is amazing.)
Not only is the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 easy to apply, it is also affordable. There’s not a whole lot I dislike more than spending a large sum of money on a product or procedure, just for it to not present results. For only $77, each box contains 12 peels (a 6 week supply). This is such a great deal versus up to a thousand dollars for procedures at your dermatologist’s office.
After using the peel twice, I can already see an improvement to the fine lines on my forehead and the uneven skin tone above my lip. I will definitely continue using this product for the full 6 weeks and update you all on my final results. For this price range and real, fast results, this Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is now at the top of my must have lists. No one wants to look older than they are, and this peel can be a crucial part of your anti-aging regime. I will be applying my next box to my décolletage area to help with fine lines and sun damage.
You can purchase yours here. Let me know if you use this peel and your results!
