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.

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.

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

Perfect At Home Peel
Adrienne from Atlanta
I used the product as instructed, and I seen results within a week. My skin was brighter and the texture & tone improved.
Overpriced and doesn't work
Ruby from Sioux Falls, SD
The basic intended use of this product fails on ever level. I would consider my skin to be sensitive to normal and felt no tingling or warming sensation when product was put on skin. I've seen no change to skin after using product and can't understand why Ulta has this product t do highly rated. Check independent sites and makeup ally reviews before you waste your money like I did.
Julie from Missouri
I love the daily microfoliant (it's seriously sooo good and changed my skin in the best way) and so I decided to try more Dermalogica products. This is disappointing for the price. I've seen better results personally from using the BHA serum peel from the ordinary and it's a lot cheaper than this peel. I will put my dermalogica dollars to the microfoliant from now on!! ❤️
Pinky from Daytona Beach, Fl
I started with the intense 3 day kick start and just did my 2nd treatment a week after the 3 day starter. My skin handled it well, I started with pretty decent skin, no peeling. I had some minor stinging when I applied but I expected that. Skin looks fresh, tight, pores are smaller, overall healthier appearance.
Mandiepants from Cleveland, OH
I was excited to try, but hesitant to spend the $$$ on this so I bought it with rewards. I don't have sensitive skin and tolerate peels well. It's fine, I guess. I see better, faster (cheaper!) results with The Ordinary's AHA and BHA peeling solution. Probably great for those with very sensitive skin.
Really quite like
JP from Wyoming
This is my second time purchasing. I quite like the product however I cannot use as directed or I get white patches on my olive skin. I use about once a week or so but I can see that a couple of sunspots on my face have vanished and skin looks better and glows after using.
Will definitely buy again
Ashley from Rio Rancho
I love this product I'm am seeing amazing results
Not Worth The Money or Effort
AmySue from Tulsa, OK
I bought the kit from Ulta and completed the 3-day jump start last night. I never did peel which I was actually expecting. My skin does feel smoother to the touch, but I bought this hoping it would help with hyperpigmentation/melasma on my upper lip. It hasn't seem to have affected that much at all, and I actually have a small breakout on my cheek where I very rarely break-out. Overall, this product was not worth the cost and time I put into it. I can get the same results without the break-out doing a simple sugar scrub (literally scrub your face with white, granulated sugar) in the shower. 🤷🏻♀️

If I loved it many times and will continue to use it
I buy this again and again.

I try to use this once every month. It's like going to the salon. Face feels fantastic after, plus it's lightening my dark sun spots.
I like it
Nats from Fort Lauderdale
I like this product a lot and I think It's working but it's only been 2 weeks so still seeing progress. Great thing about this is you don't actually peel like chemical peels you get done at the office. My face does feel better
Dee from California
This product does tingle at first but it really works! It leaves my skin feeling soft and rejuvenated after use
On my third purchase
J Fer from Milwaukee WI
I started purchasing this product about a year ago, I used (not even purposely) prior to each season and it carries me into the next.... my skin looks incredible... I am 50, 51 next month and my skin looks better than it did in my 30's... This product is really a god send! Please do not stop selling ❤️
Inagirl from Houston
This product lives up to its claims! It is a marvelous peel that leaves skin soft, smooth, shining and rids one's skin of fine lines and that crepe look. It does not irritate the skin.
I would continue using this product as part of my regimen

Makes skin smoother
Ngneer from Detroit
Like other reviewers said, this did barely anything when I had it in for 7 minutes. I ended up keeping it on for half an hour and saw better results.
I have sensitive skin and this didn't bother it. I used it with a dermalogica moisturizer and my face is noticeably smoother. I don't have complaints and I'll wait until I use the full box to make my decision on whether to re-purchase.
