For the first few years of my mothers life, she lived in sunny California. It was enough to create a life long sun bunny. Now that she is a little *ahem* older and a nurse, she regrets her sun bathing days and credits her sun spots and uneven skin as unfortunate side effects. Instead of soaking up the rays, she is soaking up the cremes trying to reverse the damage and I can’t blame her. So when we had the chance to review The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 she was all over it!
After a little research, I discovered that the creators of NeoStrata Company, Inc., Drs. Van Scott and Yu are internationally recognized for making the groundbreaking discovery that Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) have a profound beneficial effect on human skin.
After only one month of twice weekly use, 100% of users saw improvement in fine lines & wrinkles and 94% saw more even skin tone, texture and radiance.
Their research established that AHAs are not only beneficial in the treatment of dermatological conditions, but are also effective in stimulating prematurely aged or damaged skin to actually rejuvenate itself, thereby revolutionizing the treatment of aging skin. The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 claims to exfoliates dead, dull surface layers and stimulates cell renewal to promote healthier looking skin.
I’m going to be honest. When I first saw Performance Peel, my mind conjured up the image of Samantha Jones from Sex in the City after her disastrous Chemical Peel. Thankfully, that wasn’t anywhere near the case with us.
First, cleanse the face with a gentle, effective cleanser such as Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel.
Step 1. 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.
Step 2. 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.
The Performance Peel claims that 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
After one use my mom is already seeing some results.
Her skin had a fresh glow and we think we noticed a slight difference in the age spots. It also felt baby smooth. The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 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. She plans on using the peel over the next weeks and we will compare back – she is hoping to remove some wrinkles and fine lines.
