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:

      The price at first scared me, then once I tried the product and started seeing results I realized it's worth it! I bought my second box recently to continue lightening my scars and lessening any wrinkles I may have. Def a product to try if cheaper scar lightening products haven't worked or if you want to get results without wasting time and money!

            I have been using this for a year now and am so satisfied with the results. After each peel I notice my skin is brighter, blemishes are gone, and dark marks are gone by the next day. I only use it once every two weeks and the difference is noticeable.

                A:

                An extra peel is included in with Performance Peel AP25 for testing your skin's sensitivity. For sensitive skin types, we recommend starting out by leaving the peel on for 5 minutes, instead of 10, and neutralizing the peel at any sign of irritation or redness.

                A:

                Absolutely! Your toner can remain part of your skincare regimen while using Exuviance Performance Peel AP25. However, we would recommend waiting 24 hours after applying the peel to avoid irritation.

              Asked on 11/13/2017 by CatieCat from Eagan, MN

              1 answer

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 works by exfoliating the dead surface layers of the skin. As everyone's tolerance level of our acid blends is different, not everyone will experience a sensory response to the peel. This, however, does not meant that the peel is not working. With continued use, the peel will provide antiaging benefits to the skin, such as refining pore size, visibly diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and brightening and evening skin tone, just to name a few. This takes a few weeks of twice weekly use to start to notice the difference. Each box contains a 6 week supply, but you should start to notice some of these additional benefits within a month.
                We do not recommend using this peel more than twice a week due to the potential to over-exfoliate and possibly irritate the skin.

              • Brand Expert

                A:

                There are no known safety concerns with using cosmetic products during pregnancy. However, Exuviance recommends that all pregnant and lactating women, or those currently planning to become pregnant, seek the advice of their physician if there are specific concerns regarding use of skin care products. In addition, we recommend discontinuing use of its products containing OTC treatment drugs (e.g., acne, skin lightening, psoriasis treatments) during pregnancy and lactation, unless recommended by a physician. Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% level blend of Alpha Hydroxy and Polyhydroxy Acids including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Gluconolactone to help exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, and enhance exfoliation, to reveal healthier cells.
