Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel

The idea of a peel might sound intimidating (especially if your skin gets easily irritated), but it’s an effective way to restore your complexion’s natural glow. This customer-favorite formula is acid-free, so it gently exfoliates and evens out tone and texture—all in just three minutes—without aggravating sensitive skin types. The unique gel uses pH-neutral proteins that bind to dead skin cells to form actual solids you can see. Rinse away to reveal a fresh complexion that’s softer, brighter, and more radiant.

Perfect dry skin product

This product works wondersssss on dry skin. I use several different face products to help with anti-aging, all of which dry out my skin but help with the aging. This three minute peel is amazing! I rub it on my face and the dry skin that won't come off with any other product suddenly just rubs right off. It's truly outstanding. My face and skin is so Smooth and youthful looking. Love, love, love this product.

Best product I have ever used!

I have ordered this amazing peel in the past from Real Chemistry and I'm super excited to see it on Birchbox.com. What an amazing product. Most products promise results after a few weeks of use - this product delivers the very first time you use it. I have issues with occasional breakouts and uneven skin tone. Since I started using the Real Chemistry peel, I simply don't have those issues anymore. My friends and family literally stop me and say...."what did you have done? You skin is glowy and amazing...."
And here's the best part....for $48 I get about 20 peels out fo the tube. That's about 20 weeks so I only have to buy the product about 3-4 times per year to look absolutely flawless everyday! This stuff totally rocks. Thanks Birchbox!

Works Wonders in One Use

This product is my go to if I need a fast working face rescuer. Literally in one use, my face appears more even colored and feels so healthy, hydrated, and smooth.

Unless you're hairless, do not use

Product may work but if you have any hair/peach fuzz on your face you will spend more time picking the product out and pulling the fine hairs out with it. My forehead did seem smoother, but it's tough to gauge the overall benefits to a product when you can only use it on a small area. Not a product for me.

Refreshing!
Sampled

I wasn't expecting much from this product, so I was really amazed at the results. You are able to feel and see the dead skin leave your face. The best part for me is it is helping to diminish my countless freckles! Love this product!

Rough on fair skin

I've tried this twice after receiving this sample twice in a birch box. Both times it irritates my skin and required a lot of scrubbing to get all the product off.

Works but...

This peel did get rid of some of my dry skin, then promptly got it stuck in the fine hairs on my face and i spent the next 10 minutes picking skin balls off my face. Not really into that.

Balled up on my face and was difficult to get off
Sampled

I followed the instructions but found this peel very difficult to get off. I had to pick the balls off my face, they got stuff in the "peach fuzz" hair along my jawline. Would not recommend.
