Performance Peel AP25

Item #: 2216290

Ask a Question
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:

      One of the representatives at Ulta recommended this product and told me to try it out for 3 weeks. I bought this product for acne scarring, but since the package claims to reduce fine lines and minimize pores, I figured it'd work on something even if it didn't fade my scarring. After using it twice a week for 3 weeks, I didn't notice a difference with my scarring, pores, and fine lines.

      (I am a 24 year old Black woman) I am on my second box of treatment and I truly feel this product has made a world of difference in my skin. I noticed a difference after the first 3 weeks, and I continue to see improvement. I use it once a week, and my acne scars have faded (not completely, but I have had these scars since high school), and any "permanent" bumps I had are completely flat now. I highly recommend this product to anyone struggling with texture and old acne scars.

        This came as a sample and I enjoyed it so I purchased the kit. Turned 40 last year and noticed skin has changed to where makeup doesnt go on smoothly anymore. This peel is nice. I will do it once a month and use face polish twice a week unless I feel I need more.

                Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

                I have suffered with adult acne for years. After laser treatments, using prescription topical creams and every acne specific product on the market, I found a prescription med that really helped for several years. I cautiously stopped taking the medication, due to cost and side effects) and held my breath waiting for the acne to come back. Blemishes started popping up within a week, but as soon as I used these Exiviance peels, I knew I'd found my HG product! A month later, after committing to using these peels every 4 days, my skin looked better than it ever has! Acne free skin that was actually glowing, not greasy. It has been over a year now and, as long as I use a peel weekly, my skin stays clear and youthful. I also use Exuviance products for AM and PM, but nothing specifically for acne. I just use quality products and gently exfoliate every day to every other day.

                I had bought 4 boxes from this peel I really like. Facial now it's too expensive. It's good you have a good products in the house so you can do yourself. The pad could come with some more product , it's too little.

Then wait up to ten minutes, carefully monitoring the skin's response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort. After up to ten minutes, apply the Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.

                  • Q:

                    Can this products (and others like it) be used along with pore strips (such as biore strips)? I've used a few different extra strength peels with different combinations of acids and never had any irritation even when using up to 3x per week but I don't want to have to give up my pore strips as I haven't yet found a peel that clears my skin well enough to not need the strips.

                      Yes, you should be able to continue use of pore strips while using Exuviance Performance Peel AP25. We suggest allowing approximately 48 hours between using the pore strips and applying the peel.
