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.

              I have adult acne and constantly fight both breakouts and acne scaring. I have used this product one a week for a few weeks now and can see a difference. Any potential breakouts a knocked out and my scars are fading rapidly. It does leave my skin slightly dry the next day. I just make sure to moisturize AM and PM and by the 3rd day after treatment dryness is gone.

                  A sales associated approached me regarding this product. It's a bit pricey but she swore by this line and said it would clear up my melasma. I explained that I didn't like to try new products because I break out easily and melasma might get darker. She then persisted not with this line. You should try it!! Well I did and my melasma got darker and guess what??? It broke me out!!! If you have melasma or hyperpigmentation be careful!!!

                        This product is amazing! I use it once a week (but you can use it up to two times a week). I use it before I go to bed, wait 10 minutes, wash it off, then apply my favorite face mask. This product ENHANCES the benifits of other products such as my face mask I use after. Or even if you put on an anti-wrinkle cream or moisturizer after, it increases the effectiveness of those products. I have noticed an intense decrease in dark marks and scarring from acne I had a year ago and reduced fine lines and wrinkles from when I used to use cigarettes. My complexion is literally flawless thanks to this stuff! Can't stop buying it :)

If you're using Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 at night, we recommend applying Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex after applying SkinRise Bionic Tonic.

                            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.

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.

                            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.

                          Can you go out into the sun (with sunscreen) after use? I am an outdoor person and am out in the sun a lot.

                            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.

                          I have not purchased this product yet but was wondering if you face actually peels like a professional chemical peel does? Just wondering how long I will look like a lizard and if you actual "peel" each time you use this product or does the skin cells just wipe off?

                            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.

                          Can I go in the sun while using this with sunblock? After the 6 weeks do I stop using the product?

                            While using Exuviance Performance Peel AP25, and for one week after use, we recommend either avoiding the sun or using sunscreen daily to minimize the risk of sun sensitivity. Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% level of Alpha and Polyhydroxy Acids to exfoliate and provide antiaging benefits. We recommend continuing to use this product in order to see maximum benefits.
