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 purchased this product after inquiring about a peel in-store and the associate touting this as the best. I didn't bother testing per the instructions as I have had peels at the derm's office and wasn't too worried about a reaction. The instructions state to leave on for no more than ten minutes... well, I didn't even remember I put it on it was so WEAK. I literally had it on my face for an hour and no tingling or redness, NOTHING. I thought that packet might be a dud so I tried it again the next day and still left it on my face for an HOUR with NOTHING. Either this box is expired/defective or this product is a total dud and not worth the $77 price tag! I am a bit upset as I was hoping to get 2 peels in before a big event this week which is why I purchased this at-home kit and now, there just isn't time to order a MUAC product and use it. Worst experience with a product at Ulta and my very first review because of it!

            I have been using this for a couple of weeks and feel like I have already seen results. It is a little expensive but per application it is cheaper than a facial or visit with the dermatologist.

                            Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 works by exfoliating the dead surface layers of the skin. As everyone's tolerance level of our acid blends is different, not everyone will experience a sensory response to the peel. This, however, does not meant that the peel is not working. With continued use, the peel will provide antiaging benefits to the skin, such as refining pore size, visibly diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightening and evening skin tone, just to name a few. This takes a few weeks of twice weekly use to start to notice the difference. Each box contains a 6 week supply, but you should start to notice some of these additional benefits within a month.
                            We do not recommend using this peel more than twice a week due to the potential to over-exfoliate and possibly irritate the skin.

                            There are no known safety concerns with using cosmetic products during pregnancy. However, Exuviance recommends that all pregnant and lactating women, or those currently planning to become pregnant, seek the advice of their physician if there are specific concerns regarding use of skin care products. In addition, we recommend discontinuing use of its products containing OTC treatment drugs (e.g., acne, skin lightening, psoriasis treatments) during pregnancy and lactation, unless recommended by a physician. Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% level blend of Alpha Hydroxy and Polyhydroxy Acids including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Gluconolactone to help exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, and enhance exfoliation, to reveal healthier cells.

                          I use Retin-A on a nightly basis. Can I use this peel 1-2 times a week while still using
                          Retin-A? I would not apply Retin-A the same night that I use the peel.

                            Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 will help exfoliate dull surface layers and encourage the process of cell renewal among skin layers to reveal healthier cells.The appearance of superficial acne scars may be softened over time with continued use of the peel in conjunction with daily use of a high-strength antiaging regimen such as Exuviance Age Reverse. Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 also helps even skin tone and enhance texture and radiance.
