The tingle is all part of the exfoliation, but it’s best to test this out in a non-visible place, like behind your ear, first to ensure it doesn’t irritate your skin.

Juice Beauty

Birchbox Breakdown

We know, we know, we should use more organic and natural skincare. But sometimes healthy products don’t feel very effective. Not so with this Green Apple Peel, which smells like apples, looks like apple butter, and manages to truly even out skin. After just one use, you'll have completely flake-free skin — plus we love the zesty tingle. Major bonus: the antioxidant-rich formula has been shown to reduce skin cell damage.

How it Works

A hydroxy acid complex composed of apple, lemon, grape juices, raw cane sugar, and white willow bark exfoliates skin for a smooth surface. Antioxidants, including vitamin C, protect skin from environmental damage.

How to Use

Apply a thin layer to clean face and neck once a week. It will tingle a little bit at first. Leave for 8-10 minutes for sensitive skin; up to 15 minutes for more resistant skin types. Rinse thoroughly and follow with toner or serum.

Organic juices of pyrus malus (apple) juice (malic), citrus medica limonum (lemon) juice (citric) & vitis vinifera (white grape) juice (tartaric), organic saccharu officinarum (glycolic acid), salix alba (willow bark) extract (salicylic acid), organic milk peptides (lactic acid), organic aloe barbadensis leaf juice, glycerin, hydroxypropyl starch phosphate, sodium hydroxide, organic algae extract, sclerotium gum, tocopheryl acetate & tocopherol (vitamin E), ascorbyl palmitate (vitamin C), retinyl palmitate (vitamin A), phospholipids, magnesium aspartate, zinc gluconate, copper gluconate, phenoxyethanol, benzyl alcohol, potassium sorbate, tetrasodium EDTA, xanthan gum, azulene.

love I use 2x week
Purchased

I'm almost 37 and am now taking skin care very seriously. I sue this product 2x a week and it makes my skin look more even tone and so smooth. It does tingle a little but then dries quickly. Only 10 minutes on and then warm water rinse off. It does make my skin a little red right after but that fades before I go to bed. I love that it exfoliates so well that it allows my night time skin care to really soak in and do it's work!

Great at home Chemical Peel
Purchased

I have always treated myself to a day at the spa and included chemical peels, this product definitely compares to the high end spa treatments that I have had. if you haven't had a chemical peel before I would recommend starting with the mild version. And yes it is normal for your skin to be red after your 10 minutes are up. The redness goes away in an hour or two so don't do it before going out on a big date. I use this product at least twice a week.

Burned!

Like most skin peels I had red "sunburned" skin after using the peel. It went away after an hour and my skin was sensitive for a day or so afterwards. While it worked I don't think it was worth the issues.

Works well
Purchased

I just got this in one of my monthly boxes, and thought it was just a masque. I applied it one day, and much to my surprise it began to tingle a LOT! I called my aesthetician in a panic, and she made me read the label...it's a PEEL. OH!! That explains the tingling! Anyway, once I realized it was doing exactly what it was supposed to be doing, I ended up loving it and ordering the full size . I do it every few weeks to give myself a good exfoliation and end up with a nice glow! Love it!

Gentle but effective

I received a sample and have used it for a few weeks. The smell is not the greatest but the Peel itself seems to be doing a good job. I have used it twice a week for 2 weeks. I know it says once but I don't have sensitive skin either. It has a slight burning sensation for just a couple of minutes after first applying. I leave it on for 15 minutes. After rinsing, my skin feels fresh and soft. I don't have any redness at all after using it either and it is not drying my face out. I might add I have combo skin. Is it miraculous??? No.....but it is effective and I will be buying a full sized jar when my sample run out.

gentile peel, great smell

I love all Juice products. This peel is gentile, but works well. It's great in combination with the blemish clearing serum and oil free moisturizer.

My skin feels great

Purchased this product after receiving a small sample from my friend. Was looking for something to smooth out my skin on the days after I exfoliate. If you can get over the smell, it works wonders. Has a bit of a tingle, but washes off nicely and leaves my skin feeling smooth!

Soft skin

I use this about once a week and love how my skin feels after. I instantly see a difference in my skin's texture and tone.
