To speed up your skin’s improvement, use this peel in conjunction with Real Chemistry’s Daily Serum.

Real Chemistry

Birchbox Breakdown

In less time than it takes to cover up a flawed complexion with caked-on foundation and concealer, you could uncover a new layer of fresh, glowing skin with Real Chemistry’s Luminous 3 Minute Peel. The acid-free peel gently sloughs away dead skin cells, evening tone and smoothing rough patches without irritating sensitive skin.

How it Works

Suitable for all skin types, this pH-neutral protein peel gently exfoliates delicate skin without the use of harsh acids or abrasives. The unique gel binds to dead skin cells on the face, neck, and décolleté, forming solids that can be easily washed away with water. In just three minutes you’ll reveal the luminous, younger-looking skin below. Great for reducing the appearance of acne scars, dark spots, rosacea, and blotchiness (and who doesn’t suffer from at least one of those?).

How to Use

Once a week, apply a thin layer of product to clean, dry skin on face, neck, and décolletage. Then massage skin in a gentle, circular motion to exfoliate. Wash skin with a mild cleanser to completely remove the peel. Test product on the back of your hand or neck before use.

Water, glycerin, polyoxyethylene glyceryl ether, alkyl trimethyl ammonium chloride 
carbomer, diazolidinyl ureaiodopropynyl butylcarbamate, peg-40, disodium edta, hyaluronic acid.

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!

Love this
Sampled

I have received this product twice as samples, once in my monthly box and once in the mystery pack that I received free with my purchase. I was so excited to receive it a second time. To my surprise this product was amazing, I have used other peels that have left my sensitive skin even worse, but this didn't irritate my skin at all and left it glowing after. would definitely recommend this to anyone, sensitive skin or not!

Surprisingly GREAT!
Sampled

This is a product I plan to purchase ASAP; I had never thought about using a peel on my face, but after the first application, I was instantly hooked - my face was instantly softer, brighter, and smoother, and the product was super easy to use and didn't bother my sensitive skin at all. I had no idea how much I needed and would love this peel; thank you for sending me a sample birchbox! I just love this!

Not a fan

I didnt like the consistency of the peel as I put it on my face. I also didn't like the way it peeled off my skin. I didn't notice any change in my skin.

Not effective

I have used peels in the past and was excited to hear that this one was good for sensitive skin. However when I tried it, I really saw no change in my skin.

This mask made my skin glow. It wasn't drying or took a long time to get results.
