When I came across the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 ($60) – which is like a do-it-yourself chemical peel – I felt adventurous. I’ll try anything to stop wrinkles and other signs of aging in their tracks. The safe, at-home “peel” is made up of a duo of glycolic acid-soaked pads (comes with a 6 week supply if used twice weekly).
I was impressed by how easy they were too use; the pads come in disposable single serve packets and feel like regular toner. Like the real deal, the 25% level peel sets out to dramatically reverse deep wrinkles – which it did. I was amazed by how even and almost glowing my skin tone became, too. I did feel very mild irritation, but I have incredibly sensitive skin. Plus, you know what they say about beauty and pain.
