Most Helpful Positive Review Gentle but effective
I decided to try this product after having success with their serum. I have never had a good experience with a chemical exfoliator due to how sensitive and reactive my skin is. Usually they leave my face extremely red, and break me out even worse, but as I get older I want to move away from physical exfoliants.
This is a really pretty color and only has a slight smell to it that disappears after a couple of minutes. I apply a thin layer because of my skin, and only experienced slight burning upon application. I did leave it on for the maximum time because when checking my skin, it wasn't turning super red. It was easy to remove and only caused some slight pinkness to my face.
Now for the results. It made my skin SO soft. I wasn't sure what it would do because there wasn't a lot of redness, but as soon as I removed it my skin felt like silk. The next morning I noticed brighter, slightly more even skin, with almost all my texture gone. I really love this peel. It's so gentle, it's the first one to not break me out or cause a reaction, and it has noticeable results. I use it once Every other week because I also do microdermabrasion and my skin can't handle exfoliating a lot. I'm really loving the results I'm seeing from it though and love that it clears up any acne starting, especially because I can't use my PMD with active acne. I absolutely love this brand!
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't see results
I never write reviews, but I wanted to honestly portray my experience that I think contrasts a lot of the reviews here. I'm not sure why this mask didn't work for me the way it did for so many others, but that's the deal with skincare I guess. Firstly, if you're out of habit with chemical masks, this mask will be paaainful first application. I haven't used a chemical mask in a while BUT I do know what they feel like, so first application I could only last a minute but knew that was due to my tolerance being low, rather than the mask. The next time I went 5 minutes to be safe because of other reviews of burns/ cuts. By this point, my skin had re-adjusted to the chemical mask so application was a breeze besides some slight tingling that subsided after maybe 30seconds. I didn't experience the really negative effects, but I also didn't see any positive results either. Third time, to really give it a good go, I went for 20 min. But again, nothing. Even in the morning after. My skin didn't feel softer, it didn't glow, it didn't heal any current acne or smooth any texture. In fact, my skin almost looked more dull. At this point I thought I was just being critical and forgetting how dull it looked before the mask but THEN I used my go-to mask for next week's exfoliation and wow, I remembered what post-mask glow really can look like! This is all to say, even though this is expensive, it didn't work for me. Maybe I'm an anomaly but I think folks nooormally review things they absolutely LOVE or HATE so I wanted to add in a more balanced, didn't-like-but-didn't-destroy-me review in here.

Definitely makes my skin glow and noticeably softer. I didn't really see my fine lines go down and still have some dark spots from sun damage that remain unaffected. Been using this for 3 months. I'm 36 years old and don't wear a lot of makeup so it's easy for me to see how something affects my face.
There will be a tingle sensation… so be careful! I love using this at night.
Shelbs from Madison, ms
I'd like to start by saying maybe some of the people reviewing this product should research what the ingredients actually do before the slap new products on your face. For those of us who love an exfoliating product that actually works, THIS IS IT! Does it sting a little? Yes slightly at first but it's coupled with an almost cooling effect. It's quick. it's easy. I took one star away because I feel like the price point come down slightly but overall I will definitely purchase again. (Mid 30's, olive skin tone with combo to dry skin) also- This did not break me out and I do have slightly sensitive skin
Caroline from New York
I like the product but the stinging can range from 1-100 there's no in between. I don't know whether it's reacting with something else but it can burn but only makes my blemishes flair up. I'm very confused about this product. I still want to keep using it, but if it gets more painful I might have to chuck it.
I wanted to love it
Samantha from Conway, AR
I wanted to love this so bad but it didn't work out for me. I used it for a month straight once a week. At first it made my skin glowy but it immediately made my skin extremely dry and I had an eczema flare up…which I haven't had on my face in years. For a founder who has sensitive eczema prone skin, I'm not sure why she adds essential oils to her products. I believe this is what triggered it. Essential oils are not great to put on the face. HOWEVEVER, don't get me wrong, my face was glowy…but only for the night and then it would dry it so bad by the next morning.
Stings and causes breakouts
Lexi from New Hampshire
I don't consider my skin sensitive by any means but this STUNG! It also caused a few pimples to pop up the next morning. Not worth it, ended up returning
Great mask for experienced AHA users
MP from Miami, FL
I have dry, sensitive skin that I was previously over-exfoliating with separate 8% AHA and 2% BHA leave-ons. This mask is a one-stop shop and caused me no issues. If you've never used Glycolic Acid (AHA) before maybe start with a lower percentage or try lactic acid instead.
Excellent weekly mask
Angela P from Las Vegas, NV
Excellent mask. I love the cooling gel texture. I actually like this better than the Baby Facial by Drunk Elephant. It smooths, clears & balances my cool complexion.
This is now a staple in my skincare routine
JD from Dallas, Tx
I use this mask about 3 times a week and it has done wonders for the texture of my skin. My skin is smoother and has a beautiful shine. This is a strong mask so if your very sensitive i wouldn't recommend
Makes Skin Flat!!
Jazx from Avon Park, Fl
This product always flattens all my bumps and imperfects all of my blemishes. Not including the glow you get after! I always use my glass skin serum and and ice roller afterwards to soothe and relax.
Stings and caused hives and swollen face
Dcoco from Rockville, MD
I tried it on last night and it gave me the most painful burn in my face, but I decided to trust the process and follow along. Left it on my face for 5 mins and when I took it off, my face was swollen on the areas that I applied and I also had hives in some area as well. Unfortunately I will not be able to keep this product. My first time using a chemical mask, it may be my last time.
Burns your skin!
Michelle from Pennsylvania
If I could give this product a zero I would! The second I applied the mask my skin started burning, I decided to wait a few minutes and the burning only got worse. My entire face became red and irritated.
Khris from Your Mom's House
Had this product in an oily skin essentials kit, tried it for the first time and oh my GOD does it BURN. I couldnt handle it and washed it off IMMEDIATELY!
Loved this mask
Amangray8 from Meridian, ID
It tingled for the first couple minutes (give it at least 5) and then my skin felt wonderful after. I love it was more than The Original AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution. I never felt like that one did anything.
Burns and irritates
Christine from Massachusetts
This is getting returned asap. I have olive skin and I'm not sensitive. This literally burned so bad I had to wash it off within 5 mins. The following day the corners of my nose were so dry they bled.
BEST. MASK. EVER
annexoxoxo from chicago
i recently got this about a week ago & i've used it twice now. my skin has gotten so clear and smooth. i didn't think it was going to work as good as it does. burns a lot for the first maybe two minuets but after it feels good, not sticky at all. 10/10 would recommend. favorite mask i've ever used because it actually works!!!
Overpriced and Smells Bad
Arianna from Boston, MA
This resurfacing mask is overpriced for what it is. It smells so horrible and I find that the percentage of AHA/BHA in this does very little for me. I've used The Ordinary AHA/BHA peeling solution before which works better because it has a higher percentage of both and it smells great. It also costs $30 less. I would only recommend this to someone who has very sensitive skin and who can't use The Ordinary version.
Andrea from Idaho
I like it. I like that no one else can really see when I have it on. I don't like that it is hard to get out. I feel like I have to dip my fingers like 10 times to cover my face with enough product.
It does seem to help clear my face but I don't notice a super huge difference.
Actually works for sensitive skin!
Kp from Florida
This is my new favorite mask! My skincare routine for my ultra sensitive skin has kept my skin hydrated, but I haven't been able to find an exfoliant that doesn't cause my skin to freak out, so I still have had issues with texture and dark spots. After just one application of the mask, I could tell an immediate difference, and no burning or inflamed skin involved! And when I woke up the next morning after rinsing it off, my skin was even smoother, it had a glow, and there was an immediate difference with my dark spots (not completely gone, but I don't expect that in just one use!) I am going to continue using this just once a week, just to be on the safer side, but I am looking forward to using it again! Huge shoutout to peach & lily for creating products that actually work for sensitive skin!
E from United States
I don't think I have sensitive skin but I tried this mask several times and it burned so badly after just a few seconds that I finally just threw away the jar.
Kels from Georgia
This mask is amazing! I have super sensitive skin and this doesn't break me out! Makes my skin look amazing! It does sting at first, but doesn't cause redness or irritation.
Ab from Parma
Definitely a good product to splurge on. Mild tingling is normal (says on the product itself) but has nice cooling effect. Comes with small applicator to apply mask which is good. Takes a little effort to completely rinse off but definitely worth it. 10/10
Caroline from Greenville, NC
Okay. The tingling is intense (for me), but the results are worth it. I love this brand, so I was expecting great things, and I was not disappointed. Gives you a healthy, fresh glow and keeps skin nice and smooth--without the harshness of a scrub.
Holy grail for sure!
Haley from MN
I put on this mask for 20 minutes last night, expecting my skin to look amazing after using it. I was disappointed that my skin looked exactly the same, maybe a bit shinier, after washing it off, but not what I was expecting. So I just went through my usual skincare routine and went to bed.
BUT. This morning when I woke up, my skin looked better than it has in over a year, I swear. The blotchy redness my face tends to have was just gone. The few wrinkles I had pretty much disappeared, and the rough patches on my cheeks were gone as well. I am absolutely blown away by how well this transformed my skin. I didn't experience any stinging or irritation, and I've always considered myself to have sensitive skin. 10/10!!!
Best and most powerful mask with NO REDNESS!
Masker from Houston, TX
I used the DE baby facial and it tore up my skin! But I tried this abs it felt just as strong without any redness or irritation!
The Holy Grail!!
Anonymous from Undisclosed
I always look forward to this product when I begin my regimen. I love the color but most importantly it is helping to lighten up my old scars on my face as well as brighten up my whole complexion. If you are like me: skin picker, hyperpigmentation issues and dark skinned (black); This product will most definitely help solve those skin problems!
