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.

    Isn't working

    Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

    I went to Ulta a few weeks ago and exuviance reps were there and did a free demonstration and talked me into buying this. I've been using it for a few weeks now and haven't noticed much difference. I've been breaking out more than usual and it's not clearing up like it normally does. I'll continue till the 6 weeks is up but won't be repurchasing.

      Comments about Exuviance Performance Peel AP25:

      This is without a doubt the best at home peel that I've ever used. I have extremely sensitive skin so I try to use it every Sunday and I pay attention to my skin and if it starts feeling sensitized that I immediately apply the deactivator pad and splash some water on it - remember to rinse your face with water when you're finished or you'll feel sticky and keep it away from your mouth. But it does a great job at lightening my post acne marks and any dry and dullness.

              You get what you pay for when it comes to skincare. I've tried it all. When you want results, be prepared to invest some money & time. Even though I've only used this product once, I saw an immediate difference in my pores (around my nose & cheeks specifically). It's a 2 step-#1 active treatment for up to 10 minutes, #2 deactivate treatment. It did tingle, but nothing unbearable. I didn't experience any peeling, but I was prepared due to the warnings. My goal is to see skintone improvement-I have sun spots & am ready to part with them LOL!! It was a lucky by-product that my pores look smaller! If you've never noticed that you've got visible pores BEFORE this...you certainly will realize it AFTER. I never thought it was a problem, until I saw the clarity/smoothness afterward. Will buy again when I'm done with the 6 weeks!

              i have been using this 2x a week for 4 weeks and the results are fantastic. my skin look and feels so smooth, most of my sun spots are gone and people have been complimenting me on my skin and make up. i used it all over my face, the back of my hands, chest and face. i had slight tingling while using but no burning or redness. i use this peel at night and use a buff puff with obagi cleanser to exfoliate when i take a shower the next day.

                  12 Applications. Easy to use & very effective in the removal of dead cells. Also purchased Exuviance Vitamin C capsules.
                  My skin benefitted from the exfoliation & allowed for deeper penetration of the Vitamin C, which stimulates the growth of collagen & brightened my skin. Definitely recommend both products.

                      A:

                      Successful treatment of indented acne scars is typically achieved with use of high-strength peels or other cosmetic procedures such as Intense Pulsed Light or laser under the supervision of a dermatologist.

                      The AP25 Performance Peel showed excellent clinical results in improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, even skin tones, texture, and radiance. It should be used twice a week, as tolerated, and can be followed by your favorite serum. You should consult with your physician regarding the use of this of this peel in between treatments.

                      A:

                      Parabens are preservatives that are widely used in cosmetic and skin care products. It is important to use preservatives to prevent contamination and microbial growth with repeated use. However, we understand consumers' interest in paraben-free formulations. As a result, we are actively researching paraben-free alternatives and are committed to providing new formulations that are paraben free.
