Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel

This acid-free face peel removes dead skin cells, which visibly lift off as you massage the gel-like exfoliator into your skin. It's so gentle, it's safe for even the most sensitive skin types.

Reminds me of PTR FirmX Peeling Gel

Really liked this! Worked great and my skin felt visibly softer after. I have incredibly sensitive skin and had zero issues. It reminds me a lot of Philip Thomas Roth’s FrimX peeling gel which I love. Have enough product for two uses, and will probably purchase the full size after!

Horrific product
Sampled

BEWARE of this product. Little balls of product stuck to my face like burs. I had to pick them off. Soap and vigorous scrubbing wouldn't remove them. I am absolutely shocked by the number of positive reviews. I saw only one other person among the reviewers had a similar experience. My skin is red and irritated and I nearly panicked when I saw my face. I have never had such a horrific experience with a product in my life. It makes me nervous to try anything new. I'm not sure I will continue subscribing to birchbox after this. Avoid this product like the plague.

Amazing stuff!

I absolutely love this product. I can feel it working when I use it, it really does peel away dead skin without drying your face out. Leaves my face feeling clean and smooth. Most peels or scrubs dry my face out by I can use this almost every day.

I was really excited about this when it arrived in my Birchbox. I thought maybe it would be better if I had more of the product to make it work properly, so I ordered the full size. I was wrong. It's impossible to get off your face. It leaves chunky spots on your skin that you have to scrub off with a harsh washcloth (and sometimes pick off individually). You know those little "pills" you get on a sweater? It's like that. And all that scrubbing and picking residue off your face totally defeats the purpose of the peel itself. Do not recommend.

I have combination skin and some acne, and this is the perfect gentle exfoliating peel. Would recommend to everyone!

Real Chemistry 3 Minute Peel
Sampled

Why did I wait so long to try this product? I am older and use retinol products for anti-aging, so my skin is in need of a good exfoliator. Harsh exfoliator scrubs are hard on my sensitive skin and others just did not seem to work well at all. This Real Chemistry product worked great. My skin was so clean and soft afterword. I find it is easier to use in the shower. Highly recommend.

Didn’t work

Didn’t really notice this did anything. Instructions are confusing. Not a lot of product to be able to try over multiple uses. Had no effect on my skin.

At first I was underwhelmed but later that day I noticed my skin was noticeably softer. Wish sample was bigger so I could try it again!
