FREE luxury sample Evening Restorative Complex 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 got this product mainly to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. I also started with red blotchy patches on my neck. After 4 uses the red blotchy is going away. I don't notice the wrinkles around my eyes and lips as much. A complete stranger said I have nice skin, I told her I was almost 50. She said I want to know your secret! I told her about this product.

                  I had tried EVERYTHING to get rid of my minimal acne, and wanted to start focusing on any upcoming fine lines. After the first use I was amazed! It soughed off rough skin areas that I hadn't even known I'd had!! I am approaching 40 years old, am a luxury makeup artist and my Clients are in 'AWE' how youthful I look. My skin is better than most gals that are 5-10 years younger than I am! I also use this product with the serum.

                      Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

                      I have dark spots that are hard to hide . I also had these marks left over from an injury and I don't expect them to disappear right away but want to lighten them and help my overall skin texture . I tried some other high end products and gave up so figured I spend a bit more and try this line and I must say I'm finally seeing the spots fade dramatically and the most important to me were the marks on my face .
                      They are almost gone .
                      I use this with the Triple Microdermabrasion w this line and over time I can even see the dead skin cells and discoloration from the areas the marks were on seem to peel away and I'm seeing my real skin beneath re appear .
                      I am now buying many other Exuviance skin treatments because I trust this line . It feels good to see results so the price does not become a issue anymore and you deserve it.

                            I originally got this a few years back after I attended an exuviance event at Ulta. After I ran out I never repurchased (big mistake) after I stopped using it my hormonal acne returned. I tried everything to get rid of it. I never really connected the dots that this treatment helped. I finally repurchased within the past 6 months and will faithfully repurchase over and over. This is the only thing that has made my cystic acne go away (and I have tried A LOT of products) and has also helped to even my skin tone, diminish acne scars, and just give my face an overall glow! I notice a difference after each time of using it & I can finally say I feel good about my skin! I have recommended this to everyone I am friends with.

                                After applying Exuviance Performance Peel AP25, we recommend following with a moisturizer such as Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex. Apply makeup as tolerated. Try testing your makeup on a small patch of your skin to make sure it doesn't cause irritation or redness.

                                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.

                                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.

                                Of course! We always recommend testing a small area on your skin first, before applying the peel to a new area.

                                Exuviance carries four facial peels each formulated with different ingredients for specific skin types and concerns. Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 is best suited for those looking to address fine lines and wrinkles, create a more even skin tone, and exfoliate dead, dull surface layers for improved radiance.

                                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.

                              Do we rinse our face immediately after step 2 or should we keep that on our face also for 10 minutes and then rinse?

                                Once you have applied the Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the entire face, you can immediately rinse thoroughly with warm water. There is no need to wait any additional time.

                                No, Step 2 should be applied directly over step 1 after leaving step 1 on the face for up to 10 minutes. We recommend rinsing thoroughly after the application of step 2.

                                This product will help exfoliate dull surface layers and stimulate the process of cell renewal among skin layers to reveal healthier skin. Additionally, it will help to refine pore size and smooth texture which will help address your black heads.

                                You can absolutely use both peels! We recommend using Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel on days when the Performance Peel is not being used.
