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.

          from Texas

          Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

          I have been using this product for about 2 years & I love it! It is a staple in my skin care routine. I have oily/combo skin with minor acne. This product helped clear up my acne & helps keep it clear. It also wipes out my black heads on my nose & chin. It has helped even out my skin tone & the texture of my skin is so smooth now. I used it twice a week for probably the first 6 months & now use it once a week. It did dry my skin out around the mouth area when I first started using it but I realized I needed to use a good moisturizer following the peel & now I don't have that issue. Occasionally I will use it 2x a week if I feel my skin needs a boost. Recently I have been using the Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion first & then doing the peel for even better results! You will notice immediate results with this product & it only gets better.

                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.

                A:

                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.

                A:

                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.

                A:

                This product is a high strength formulation that may not be suitable for those with sensitive skin requiring hypoallergenic products. For more sensitive skin, we recommend our sensitive segment of products for your antiaging and exfoliation needs.

                Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 will help with improving skin clarity and brightness as well as help to even skin tone and provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness, and smoothness to skin. We would also recommend our new Exuviance Pigment Lifting Masque which is formulated with concentrated brighteners to diminish the look of dark spots for a more even tone.

            • 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.

                A:

                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.
