Salicylic Acid 10% Light Peel Kit
Skin Type: Oily/acneic skin type
Skin Tone: All skin tones can use this peel safely.
Standard Benefits: Salicylic Acid, a Beta-Hydroxy Acid, is a highly effective superficial peeling agent, oil reducer and pore cleanser. One of the most effective ingredients to combat the cause of facial oil, breakouts and blemishes, as well as providing an excellent rejuvenation addition and alternative to Glycolic. Salicylic acid loosens and removes aging cells, oil and debris attached to the skin surface. Salicylic acid is oil-soluble and lipophilic so it penetrates sebum filled follicles and cleans out clogged pores, resulting in marked improvement in the appearance of blemish prone skin.
Experience Level: This is a good peel for beginners and experts alike.
Downtime: Users of this peel typically experience little to no downtime. The skin may be a bit pink and tight and dry following the peel. Light flaking may occur with this peel starting on the 4th or 5th day and lasting up to 7 days.
For Best Results:
Use the Salicylic 2% Daily Exfoliator to further promote the removal of dead skin in between peels. Daily SPF application also helps protect the sensitive new layer of skin from future UV damage and allows the peel results to last longer.
Once you achieve the desired result, it is important to apply, rinse, and repeat every two weeks for a series of six to eight treatments to maintain undeniably radiant skin.

Highly recommended26 Feb 2013I have suffered from acne, ever since I was a teenager and I'm now in my 20's. The acne has left my skin with enlarged pores and some discolouration. A friend told me about this peel. I decided to try it because I really needed something to repair the damage left by the acne invasion!! I have been using it for 6 months and I am so happy with the results. My skin is less oily and I don't have any acne breakouts anymore. My skin tone has improved and my pores a less noitceable. Also my skin appears softer and smoother.

Fair Results3 Oct 2012Being that I never used a chemical peel before, I opted for the 10% first. I have been using the product once a week for a month and see a slight difference in a reduction in wrinkles and oil production. I am impatient and want to see more a difference, so I just ordered the 20% and can't wait to try it.

I would definitely buy this product agai10 Feb 2011I love this product. Finally I can exfoliate my own skin at home without spending hundrends of dollars at a dermatologist's office. I use this product once a week and I will order next time the glycolic peel. My skin is extrememly oily so I need to keep it exfoliated at all times, just to keep the breakouts away.

It's alright8 Dec 2010I've had a chemcial peel done before and it removed all my acne, however, I couldnt afford to maintain through their treatment. This is a good product to use to remove acne. Ive used one treatment and need to use a couple more application in order for my face to be completely clear. Next time I might purchase to 20% instead to get faster results.

Refer to instructions prior to performing a skin peel.
Step 1: Wash the skin with a transparent gel cleanser and pat dry. Do not use a cream, lotion or pearlescent cleanser which may leave residue. Pat dry and then apply the pre-peel solution using a cotton ball to ensure that it is properly cleaned
Step 2: Apply a small amount of the Salicylic 10% Peel to a gauze pad and smooth it over the desired area of the face, neck, or décolletage. Avoid the eye area, lips and nostrils.
Step 3: Re-apply the solution as needed to cover the entire face or treated area until the skin is slightly damp. Gently buff each layer into the skin using gauze pad. Allow the peel to set for 2 to 3 minutes.
Step 4: Remove the peel by applying the Neutralizer Solution directly over the targeted area, then rinse remaining solution with cool water for 30 seconds. Gently pat the skin dry and apply the 100% Pure Hyaluronic Moisturizer to nourish the skin with anti-aging ingredients.
Step 5: Moisturize the skin as needed after the peel and apply SPF 30 to protect the renewed skin from damage during the day. In the event that irritation occurs, apply a barrier ointment such as Neosporin, or Aquaphor over the hyaluronic serum until skin returns to normal.
For external use only. Do not apply to broken or peeling skin. Immediately rinse with water and discontinue use if excessive redness or irritation occurs. Keep out of reach of children.
Sunburn alert. This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.
