FREE deluxe sample Performance Peel 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:

After spending 40 years ignoring my skincare needs I purchased this for half price during the 21 days of beauty. I apply it to my face, neck, and hands. After the very first use I went shopping and a lady grabbed my hand to look at my nails and absolutely freaked about how soft my hands were and asked what I used. I'm not even someone that uses lotion so it had to be this product and sure enough I touched the back of my hands and I was amazed as well! I purchased 2 more boxes at half price and haven't looked back since! Amazing product, my skin is soft and it's lightening up my brown skin damage spots as well!

Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

I've struggled with my skin over the last 6-8 months. I used to have oily skin and occasional breakouts, but suddenly had bad acne on my cheekbones and chin. To combat the acne, I used acne skincare items, but everything kept getting worse. *

I finally figured out that I was allergic to a certain brand of foundation/powder. Using the acne items and cold weather actually exacerbated the acne/irritated skin. During that time, I was using this peel and thought I was doing it responsibly (using a gentle cleanser, no acne treatment post-treatment). However, the combo of everything was too much, so I stopped using the treatment. In hindsight, I'd describe my skin as sensitive and healing from the damage done by the makeup. *

I've given my skin time to heal from the inflammation and recently went back to using the peel 1-2 x per week. Now I'm seeing good results - the overall condition of my skin is softer and my skin is having less "mini" breakouts. It will take time to heal the texture/scars, but this product should help. *

Lesson learned .... more is not always a good thing! If this irritates your skin - for whatever reason - stop and reconsider the peel and/or your overall skin situation.

notice results after 2 uses

By Mary Ann

Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

I picked this up during the 21 days of beauty sale. I'll start by saying I'm in my upper 20s, sneaking up on 30 real fast! I have combo skin, and it some places it's uneven and I have some deep lines on forehead (thanks mom). I have only used this twice and I am in love. I notice my sling is firmer, more plump and my lines are starting to fade. I always do it in evening and follow with my evening skincare. Will definitely be repurchasing! Only took a star off for price, but it's well worth the money!

        I was a bit skeptical when purchasing this as I do go for professional chemical peels and microdermabrasions every other month but adding this to my routine, once a week - not twice as they say you can - my skin looks amazing! My skin tone and even some of the fine lines, are diminishing. I will purchase this again. Very pleased with it!

        Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

        I had been using this product faithfully (twice a week) when I had an appointment with my dermatologist (unrelated to my face). The first thing he said after "Hello" was "Wow. Your skin looks great!". His comment was echoed by the resident. This product is the only new thing I had added to my line-up since seeing him last. I felt like my skin was looking better but having him confirm it makes this rather pricey product worth every penny. I'm early 50s with pretty decent skin... only fine lines, some new spider veins and a few sun spots (please, people, sunscreen or avoid the sun altogether... you'll be so glad later). My advice is use to this "peel" (not sure why they call it a peel) regularly twice a week. Use it as directed and stick with it for a few months before making a decision about it. My skin became so soft and smooth. I also stocked up when it was half-price recently. If you don't get Ulta's e-mails, you may want to as you learn about great deals like that early in the a.m.

          • 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.
