FREE deluxe Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish & Bionic Oxygen Facial w/any Exuviance purchase
The Exuviance Performance Peel AP 25 contains 12 peels (a 6 week supply), which can be used up to twice a week on face, backs of hands, neck, chest and body.

The creators of the original Glycolic Acid peel introduce a high performance peel that is safe and easy to use at home. The Exuviance 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 stimulates the process of cell renewal among all layers, to reveal fresher, healthier cells.

With regular use, up to twice a 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.



First, cleanse the face with a gentle, effective cleanser such as Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel.
  • 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.
Follow with a moisturizer such as Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex.

Precautions: The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 may be used up to twice weekly, as tolerated by your skin. Reduce frequency of use if skin becomes uncomfortable, irritated or if bothersome peeling occurs.
Activator Pads: Aqua (Water), Mandelic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Gluconolactone, Ammonium Hydroxide, Arginine, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Chlorphenesin, Methylparaben, Sodium Bisulfite. Neutralizer Pads: Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Bicarbonate, Glycine, Benzalkonium Chloride.

    Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

    I had been using Exuviance Glycolic Moisturizer and Line Sooth Serum for over a year, and when I added the Performance Peel AP 25 to my skin routine twice a week as directed, my skin vastly improved in a more even skin tone, lessening of wrinkles and reduced pore size after the six weeks. This was my 2nd purchase as I intend to continue using Performance Peel AP 25 weekly to maintain the effect.

      Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

      My skin tone is uneven and I've been lusing inking for something to help tighten and firm as I age. I used this twice in a week and was surprised at the changes! So much smoother and firmer. Forehead lines much less noticeable. I've since decided to use twice a week and after 3 weeks I can say it's a huge improvement. I have somewhat sensitive skin but have had no issues with this peel. Highly recommend.

      Small pads

      By Barb

      from NH

      Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

      I have somewhat sensitive skin and had no irritation, just tingling when using this product. my only complaint is that the pads are too small. As this didn't seem to be an exceptional product, I will not reorder for that reason.

            This product smooths and minimizes pores. It takes away those dead skin cells that can be stubborn to wash away with a regular face wash or scrub. You notice a difference after first use. I love that it gets rid of the white heads and dirt on the sides of the nose.

              A lot cheaper alternative to chemicals peels at your dermatologist. I can only use a peel once every two weeks because of how dry my skin is but it has made a HUGE difference in my skins texture, acne scars, and pores. Recommend for everybody!

                    A:

                    We typically recommend cleaning the face with a gentle, effective cleanser such as Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel. You can always use your favorite cleanser, as tolerated. If you feel any sensitivity or experience irritation, you may want to try Purifying Cleansing Gel or Gentle Cleansing Creme instead.

                    Performance Peel AP25 showed excellent clinical results in improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, even skin tones, texture, and radiance and can be used on all skin types, as tolerated. An extra peel is included in this kit for testing your skin's sensitivity. For sensitive skin types, we recommend starting out by leaving the peel on for 5 minutes, instead of 10, and neutralizing the peel at any sign of irritation or redness.

                    A:

                    Successful treatment of indented acne scars is typically achieved with use of high-strength peels or other cosmetic procedures such as Intense Pulsed Light or laser under the supervision of a dermatologist.

                    The AP25 Performance Peel showed excellent clinical results in improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, even skin tones, texture, and radiance. We recommend consulting with your physician regarding the use of this of this peel in between treatments.

                    Of course! Since Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, we always recommend using sunscreen. Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50 is perfect to protect against photodamage. It also offers a virtually invisible universal tint that helps smooth imperfections and helps natural skin tone appear more even.

                    A:

                    The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is a professional-level peel formulated to be safe for use at home. The 25% blend of AHAs + PHA helps to exfoliate the surface layers of the skin. It's unlikely that you will see any visible peeling. To be sure, you can always start your first peel with a shorter exposure and neutralize after 5 minutes instead of 10 minutes.

                • Q:

                  The instructions say to avoid eye and lip areas. However, I see that some customers are praising the affects of this product on the wrinkles around their eyes and lips. Since, I've started using this product, one week ago, I've noticed that the skin on my face and neck have lightened, but that makes the skin around my eyes appear darker. Can this be used on the skin around the eyes, or not? I'd like to, if it can help the darkness and small lines around my eyes look more like the rest of my face.

                    A:

                    Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 should not be used around the eyes and lip as those areas tend to be more sensitive. In order to target darker skin around your eyes, we recommend using an ophthalmologist-tested eye cream, such as Exuviance Brightening Bionic Eye Creme, which contains Vitamin K to target dark under eye circles.

Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 also helps even skin tone and enhance texture and radiance.
