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!

Really enjoy this product and this company!

The texture of this was surprising, and confusing, the first time but the results are great. My skin is soft and radiant after using the peel! I'm approaching my mid 30s so my skin isn't very aged yet, but I've had a hard time with dryness in the last few years. This left my skin feeling smooth and great. A lot of exfoliating products leave me with dry patches the next day. It is a little pricey, but the results are exciting!

It took 2 tries to figure out you need quite a bit of gel to cover your skin with a light layer, BUT it's amazing to see the dead skin turn into solids and come right off. Skin is so soft and radiant, will be purchasing.

I didn't really like this peel because it wasn't similar to most peels. Also, I didn't see any great results after using it

I have sensitive acne prone skin, which tends to make me shy away from peels. I liked this mask though. It did not irritate my skin and when peeled off the mask I noticed it gave my skin a nice glow and no irritation. Was very suprised I ended up liking a peeling mask on my face. Would recommended this mask.

Worth every penny!
Purchased

I've never experienced anything quite like this product. It works pretty much immediately and it exfoliates better than any scrub or microderm abrasion cream I've ever tried. It doesn't dry out your skin either! This will absolutely be a permanent part of my skin care routine from now on. I'm in love!
