I personally would use this type of product once a week. You may not need to use it but every two weeks. Just depends on your skin type. The instructions say to use it every week for 4 weeks to see results.

On the Brazilian peel website they explain that after 10 minutes the peel neutralizes itself. So you can leave it on longer, and it won't tear your skin up. I suggest you check it out, lots of good info.

Please don't leave this product on more than the time recommended on the box. More is not better. If it was, they'd tell you to keep in on for 3 hours. Follow the directions and you'll will get the benefits you seek. If you feel you want something more than 30% glycolid acid, see a board-certified dermatologist. They can do a 50% or higher peel for you. I'm a licensed esthician who used this product on myself and, yes, I followed the directions, and it worked great.

Use this product, add a good sunscreen to your regimen and even out the tan with a quality bronzer. Your skin will thank you, and no one is the wiser. Test products in the Sephora store near you, as I did when I finally decided to remain a sun worshiper but save my face from certain ruin! Have fun with it because you're doing a good thing for y-o-u.

From my personal experience, peels will make your skin more sensitive and prone to discoloration when you are exposed to direct sun. I can wear SPF 50 and still get discoloration. So if I were you, I'd only try it in the Winter time, or be extremely careful not to cause damage to your skin.

You would get the same effect, but the product might get weak if you open it and don't seal it up. The company could best answer that question. Maybe you should contact their customer service for that.

If cost is an issue, you can purchase 30%, 35% & 40% glycolic acid separately. Just search online. You will need to purchase a neutralizer separately. You will need to mix it yourself and be responsible to research the proper use of product to avoid untoward effects on the skin. Purchased alone, I got a 35% solution under seventeen dollars w/ free shipping. 30mL or 1 oz, enough 15 treatments from am a zon. a neutralizer under ten dollars, so total under thirty dollars for fifteen treatments.

That depends on your skin type. If you have dry skin to start with, you might see a little peeling. If you have oily skin, you might not see anything at all. And, the peeling, if any, is not snake-like -- it would be just slight sloughing. Hope that helps.

Question
Is this product good for/ok for acne prone skin?
I've had mild to moderate acne my whole life and it is kind of up and down. (Mostly due to hormones). I'm looking to do some sort of resurfacing because not only do I suffer from acne scarring and red marks, but my skin tone is kind of bumpy (like little bumps, clogged pores), oily, and just plain ugly. I envy people with clear, smooth radiant skin and I wanted to know if this product will do that for me, especially if my acne is still sort of active?...thanks!

This product is great for acne. It will help heal what you have. I wouldn't use it if you have a recently popped pimple as the acid in the product will burn it. Wait until a scab forms and then use it.

OK SO I USED THIS ONCE AND I RARELY GET PIMPLES, BUT I HAVE VERY SENSITIVE SKIN AND WHEN I USED IT I HAPPENED TO HAVE A HUGE, AND I MEAN HUGE, PIMPLE RIGHT BETWEEN MY EYES. THIS PEEL BURNED THE PIMPLE RIGHT OFF AND I DIDN'T EVEN FEEL IT. I WIPED THE MASK OFF AND THERE WAS A TINY SCAB IN ITS PLACE BY THE TIME I GOT OUT OF THE SHOWER. ONE WORD: AMAZING. NO BURNING, NO BRINGING OTHER PIMPLES TO THE SURFACE. I GET VERY TAN IN THE SUMMER AND WHEN I TOOK IT OFF I WAS WHITE AS A GHOST. NO JOKE, THIS IS A PEEL. BUT U NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN FOR UP TO A WEEK AFTER APPLYING. EVERYDAY.

If you're currently using an item from a dermatologist, I would ask your dermatologist before using this item. Otherwise, I think this would help with the scars/brown spots left from your cystic acne. (It won't get rid of them all at once, but, with time and continued use, you'll see a difference.)

GLYCOLIC %
what is the glycolic % on this product?

answer 1
The 30% glycolic acid is VERY misleading. The syringe has two barrels, one containing the acid, the second containing the base, or neutralizer. When mixed, the peel becomes warm. This is actually the glycolic acid being neutralized. It is a fun product, but I have gotten better results with a 5% glycolic wash, which does not contain neutralizers.
answered 3 years, 5 months ago

answer 2
It must already be neutralized. Law regulates active glycolic up to 10% only for over the counter use. Anything above that is for Salon or Doctor use/app. So, there is absolutely no benefit to paying $78 for an non-effective glycolic acid (not enzyme) in the product. I have used up to 40% and it can be very dangerous if not monitored and timed based on each person's individual skin condition. You must be licensed to apply over 10%. And as far as self-neutralizing...How can an acid neutralize itself? I suggest researching this acid & having a professional strength application.
