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!

Face Peel

I had not used a face peel before receiving this product in my monthly box, and I was a little bit skeptical about using it. After using the face peel, I was very satisfied with the outcome and the way my face felt. It was refreshing and my skin felt new.

Face Peel

This peel felt effective in that it felt like something was barely burning my skin (not bad), but the sample was too small to see any real change in skin appearance.

Clean, shiny skin. Total spa experience without the cost.

I was skeptical about this product because my skin tends to be on the sensitive side. My friend and I had a spa day and decided to try this. I absolutely loved the feeling afterwards & found it was super easy to apply and take off.

Great Exfoliator for Sensitive Skin
Sampled

I have used peels in the past and had my skin react very poorly so I was a little hesitant to try this product. I liked the feel of my skin after a few minutes my skin felt soft and glowing. It didn't cause issues for my skin but I wouldn't use it more than once a month as my skin is too sensitive.

This product was not bad. It definitely made my skin very soft, but the instructions were very confusing.

WOW

This has to be by far the best face peel I have ever used. The dead skin just sloths off your face and my face has never looked so smooth and felt so soft. It doesn't smell and it's so incredibly easy to use. Use a quarter size amount and rub all over your clean face, the dead skin will literally rubs off. It's so bizarre at first but the result is amazing. Also, it doesn't burn or irritate and I have very sensitive skin!

Love this

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!
