Sunday, January 23, 2011 Glycolic Peel Review

As indicated a few weeks ago, I have been given the opportunity to review a glycolic skin peel kit. I reviewed the 30% glycolic chemical peel.

I have always been very hesitant about the thought of a chemical peel, but also very curious as I have known people who have seen great results. I know I can't afford to test this out at the spa, so I was very interested in the home chemical peel kits available from Although a little hesitant about doing it myself, the thorough information on their website made me comfortable that I would be able to use the kit appropriately.

First, when you go to the site, you will find that there is very detailed information about the products they provide. When you go to the glycolic skin peel page, you will see that there are a number of strengths ranging from 10% to 70%. Under each kit, there is information about what skin types each particular kit is good for. After reading through the descriptions, I confidently settled on the 30% chemical peel. The checkout process was very simple and the products came promptly. The kit arrived in a clear carrying case that makes it easy to keep all the products together.

The glycolic peel contained the following: Glycolic 10% Exfoliator, Glycolic 30% Light Peel, Hyaluronic Moisturizer, and Gauze Pads. I'm not going to lie, at first I was a little scared by the gauze pads until I realized that they were only there to apply the Exfoliator and Peel. The kit also came with very detailed instructions, including how to make a deactivating solution in case your peel is too strong.

The whole process of the peel was super easy. You apply the exfoliator once daily for 7 days. Then once you are sure you are not having any bad reaction to the exfoliator, you move on to applying the peel. Each one only takes between 30-90 seconds to apply. Much quicker than I thought it would be!

I found that the process was pain-free. I had no problems with red skin or irritation and I experienced no peeling. I am sure this was due in large part to choosing the right peel for my skin. After the peel, my skin looking smoother, brighter, and refreshed. I look forward to using the kit again over the coming weeks to continue seeing great results! If you've been interested in trying a chemical peel, I would highly recommend checking out kits on
