Most Helpful Positive Review Worth it, but apply wisely!
I received this Rapid Reveal Peel complimentary for my honest review. I have very red, sensitive skin, that is combo / dry and prone to t-zone blackheads. Needless to say, I was nervous going into this but willing to test it out for the sake of anyone who has the same issues. You can either do this peel as a once in a while treatment, or as a "kick-start" phase of one tube every day for three days. I opted to create my own kick-start and did one tube every OTHER day to see how my skin reacted (the off days I did a heavy-duty calming routine). I also only kept the product on for a couple minutes the first day and added a minute and a half each day so my skin acclimated. I believe this kept my skin from burning and having a breakout like other comments I've seen. My blackheads are non-existent which is allowing the pores on my nose and cheeks to heal, and the dry texture on my cheeks has all but been removed. My skin was red after I initially washed off the product, but that's to be expected in my opinion after a peel, but almost immediately I noticed the one line on my forehead was reduced and has not come back. I also appreciate the packaging and single-use ampules, so you know you're using the proper amount for your face down to your décolletage. I have always loved Dermologica products and promoted them heavily when I worked at a beauty store in my early 20's, so to me this is just another great product in their line. A trust-worthy and respected brand that I'll continue to use as I age (gracefully, if I have anything to say about it).
Most Helpful Critical Review Not for me
First of all, putting this stuff on your face is an experience, Haha! I opted to do the kick start phase, which entails using the peel 3 nights in a row, then continuing to use once a week.
When you apply this stuff, there's definitely a burning sensation that makes you question your life choices a little bit. But, it fades pretty quickly and is replaced by the sensation of actual heat, which is actually kind of nice. It's really not difficult to keep it on for the required time, you just gotta wait out the brief discomfort in the beginning.
I didn't notice any immediate results unfortunately. After removing the peel my face was (understandably) pretty red, as I'm fair skinned and slightly sensitive. I also didn't really see much long term use difference in my skin. After I finished the course, I have been struggling with lots of forehead dryness and breakouts/texture on my forehead and cheeks that I didn't have before. I can't pin the blame on this product because it could be lots of things..but I think maybe it could have just been too much for my skin. I dont usually have products break me out or dry my skin out that badly, so maybe it did, maybe it didn't, just a thought.
I can't really say I would recommend this, especially if you're dry or sensitive. It has kind of a high price tag, which I dont mind for skin care if it works well and gives the results. But I just didnt see enough personally to justify this one. I will give it an A+ for packaging. Neat idea to put the little ampules in a nice case that you can even suction cup to your mirror if you so choose.

I use this once a week. Does wonders for my skin! Less visible lines. Better complexion
Grace from Myrtle Beach, SC
I typically use half a tube once a week. It visibly made my skin better after one use. It is possible to use more frequently, but it could cause irritation. I recommend using this at night and using a good moisturizer following. It may make sensitive skin red. I believe sunscreen is a must while using this product.
Did not work for me
ONL from Brentwood
Waist of money. It just made my skin very oily and made me break out with red pimples.
J from Boston
I am a religious Dermalogica user so I had high expectations from this…. It did make my skin smooth but as for the texture? My skin looks grossly congested and clogged. The peel made my pores more evident than before. I usually use The Ordinary brand BHA Peeling Solution for only $7 and It actually DOES what this product was supposed to.
Does a great job of
Fern from Undisclosed
Does a great job of getting rid of surface layer to reveal new skin, without being harsh.
I really really wanted you
Jessica from Undisclosed
I really really wanted you his product to work for me but I broke out in what looked like an acid burn on the day following use. For 5 days, my skin burned and looked awful.

Feels great on my skin
did absolutely nothing. what a WASTE!
VeryUnhappy from Washington DC
I used this as instructed and I even watched a video on youtube walking me through the process. I tried the 3 day jumpstart and noticed absolutely no difference. i felt no tingling or burning sensation that indicates it is working and saw no difference in my skin. i just applied a fourth tube (a week after finishing the 3 day jumpstart) and so far nothing. all my face feels is sticky and shiny and i cannot believe i wasted my money on this.
Worked well, but pricey
Kiki from Las Vegas
I actually really liked the results I got from this! But I ONLY buy it when it is half off because for what it is, it's too expensive!!!! I feel like i go through it too fast to justify the cost.
It's a regular in my rotation
Annie from Richmond
I use this product every other week to make it last. I definitely notice a difference for several days after using it. My skin is less dull, fine lines are lessened and it can help clear up breakouts. I also use less moisturizer. I am 30 with no major skin concerns but do have some fine lines coming in on my forehead and hormonal acne.
My favorite peel!

Helped reduce my fine lines And I have never looked better!
I could tell a difference
Ally B from Charleston SC
I'm 27 years old with no major concerns but tried this out when it was on sale. I won't say that it is a miracle worker and you'll instantly wake up looking like Sandra Bullock but my face did feel very soft afterwards and my skin looked bright, healthy and refreshed. I would definitely purchase again!
I would definitely buy this again

See a difference first time I used it
Waste of money
Lindsey from Indiana
The only thing that this peels is about almost 5 20's out of your wallet. Dave your money and get a professional peel.
Def was not poreless
Tiff Tiff from Ohio
I have large pores and was definitely not poreless after using this. Yes they did shrink but they were still apparent. I have combo skin felt like it didn't over dry.
Made my face SO soft!
Amanda from Madison, WI
Really surprised how much I loved this! I have only used one tube, but my face is so soft! There was plenty in the single tube so my mom and I were both able to do it. There was no burning or discomfort. No skin peeling. I can't wait to see how my skin looks after I finish the regimen!
I'm a Chem Peel Snob
Anna R from Utah
I've been wanting to try this for a long time, but couldn't justify the price, especially not knowing if there were any results. This went on sale and I have to say it was one of the best purchases. Easy to follow directions. The results are amazing. Because I get professional peels often, I didn't peel or get the burning side effects it states, but my skin glows after and my pores are smaller. It really does make a difference. It doesn't look like the product lasts a long time, but you can get about 2-3 uses from each tube. Definitely on my repurchase list.
HexMara from Viera, FL
Excellent results, this product has saved me a lot of money on spa treatments for sun spots. I will recommend without any doubts!
lashley from Los Angels, CA
This product is amazing! You can feel it working by the slight warming and tingling sensation. When you rinse, you skin feels instantly smoother. The next morning my pores have disappeared and my acne scars and hyperpigmentation have faded dramatically. I will say that I got this product half off through a sale but i would pay full price to buy again once I'm out.
Isabela from Texas
I used this and it works so so , it makes my face very dry and I don't wanna use it again cause it's very strong for me .
50 yr old skin that looks 30ish!!!
Merida from Caldwell, TX
I am a very fair skin 50 yr old with red hair and very sensitive skin and I have to say that this product actually works. It doesn't irritate or burn my skin like a lot of products. I admit I was nervous because of sensitivity and that I also have rosacea, and I can say it feels so incredible. My skin feels soft again like when I was in my early thirties. My pores actually appear smaller and dullness is gone which makes my skin look dewy and youthful once again.
I know my results may be different from other individuals, although I would highly recommend trying and with Ulta's return policy what is there to lose and great skin to gain.
I can't wait to see how my skin appears after the first round of vials are completed.
Thank you Dermalogica for such a wonderful product that actually works for myself.
I would by this product again and again. I love it
Lou from Mesquite Nevada
