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!

Perfect dry skin product

This product works wondersssss on dry skin. I use several different face products to help with anti-aging, all of which dry out my skin but help with the aging. This three minute peel is amazing! I rub it on my face and the dry skin that won't come off with any other product suddenly just rubs right off. It's truly outstanding. My face and skin is so Smooth and youthful looking. Love, love, love this product.

Refreshing!
Sampled

I wasn't expecting much from this product, so I was really amazed at the results. You are able to feel and see the dead skin leave your face. The best part for me is it is helping to diminish my countless freckles! Love this product!

Rough on fair skin

I've tried this twice after receiving this sample twice in a birch box. Both times it irritates my skin and required a lot of scrubbing to get all the product off.

Works Wonders in One Use
Purchased

This product is my go to if I need a fast working face rescuer. Literally in one use, my face appears more even colored and feels so healthy, hydrated, and smooth.

Unless you're hairless, do not use

Product may work but if you have any hair/peach fuzz on your face you will spend more time picking the product out and pulling the fine hairs out with it. My forehead did seem smoother, but it's tough to gauge the overall benefits to a product when you can only use it on a small area. Not a product for me.

Worked a little but not THAT much

I think I got my hopes up a little too much for this product. It may just be my skin type but I felt like I was putting glue on my face and then scrubbing and scrubbing to get it off. I wasn't sure if it was just dead skin or the actual peel rolling into clobs on my face. I probably won't end up buying it!

Works but...

This peel did get rid of some of my dry skin, then promptly got it stuck in the fine hairs on my face and i spent the next 10 minutes picking skin balls off my face. Not really into that.
