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.

      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!

                I've been using this mask for 2 months now, and I have seen a huge improvement in my skin tone. I use this mask twice a week for 45 minutes to an hour each time. I have Melasma all over my face and this product has faded it tremendously! The Melasma was really dark and patchy and I haven't found anything that works as well as this mask. I'm on my third box now and the Melasma is so close to my skin tone that you almost can't tell I have it at all! I should also mention that I have used tons of other products in the past with no results. Another thing I love about this product is they don't use harmful hydroquinone.

                    I had doubts initially as I didn't think that there will be that effective of a peel in the market. However, after one use, I was able to see my sensitive skin moisturized and smoothed. Just like anything else, this isn't magic that will make your skin beautiful forever after just one use. A routine maintenance will have to be kept to enjoy the long term benefits of this peel. I will highly recommend this product!!!

                        A:

                        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.

                        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.

                    • 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.

                        The second step of Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is important because it neutralizes the peel applied in step 1. We do not recommend skipping this step. After applying step 2 to neutralize the peel, try rinsing your skin thoroughly with water and following up with your favorite moisturizer or serum.

                        A:

                        There is no need to wait in between boxes of Exuviance Performance Peel AP15. You can continue using the product twice a week, just as you have with the previous carton of peels.
