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 this peel. The acid-free formula gently sloughs away dead skin cells, evening tone and smoothing rough patches without irritating sensitive skin. 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—all in just three minutes. 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!

This helps even out scars and smooth the tiny clogged pores on my chin!

Cool in theory

I liked that I could feel it "working" but I had a few pimples pop up almost instantly, and redness. I've had professional peels before so I already know my skin is super sensitive but I didn't expect the reaction so quickly!

First time peel user

I've never used a peel before but I think I may start using one. My skin felt smooth and looked brighter after using but it felt really tight. Not sure if that's typical of peels or not. With a little moisturizer after my face felt amazing.

Not sold on it...

I can't tell if it's the product that is balling up or the "dead skin" that they claim. I am unsure. It's not your typical peel or mask as far as application goes. Seemed smooth afterwards but not any more or less than other products leave my skin.

Really works

I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror while getting my hair done and was immediately struck at how smooth my skin looked (instead of cringing at the under eye puffiness, poor lighting, etc). I could only attribute it to the recent use of the Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel!

Not for me

I guess I prefer more of a Microderm type exfoliator. I didn't care for this product. I didn't see or feel any benefits after using it.

Awesome

I really like this product. I have neve used a peel at home before. This really made my skin feel 100x better. It makes my face smoother and gets the excess dead/dry skin off. I do recommend this product especially if you have some dead/flaky skin that needs to come off.
