Birchbox Breakdown

If the word peel scares you, don’t worry: this skin-saving treatment won’t leave you with an angry tomato face. More than just an exfoliator, it actually improves the texture of your skin, minimize pores, lighten darks spots, and add moisture. You’ll see an immediate difference: smoother skin and fewer breakouts.

How to Use

Once a day, apply Step 1 pad to clean, dry skin, using small circles to cover the entire face and neck. Don’t press too hard and stop when the pad starts to feel dry. Wait two minutes and apply a Step 2 pad in the same way. Do not rinse or use products containing alcohol after either step. Your skin may tingle a bit but it goes away fairly quickly. Follow with a protective moisturizer and SPF.

New regimen staple
Purchased

Melasma and sun damage drew me to this product and I have to say: LOVE IT. I've had medical peels from my dermatologist friends and these are better, more convenient, and the improvements I was looking for. Buying my second round!

Awesome!

I am a huge, huge fan of these pads. They are simple to use and the results are terrific - they even my skin tone and and reduce my pores. I have dry sensitive skin and have not had any negative skin reactions in the 4 months I have been using. I use 2 to 3 times a week before going to bed and follow up with a simple moisturizing cream. The Alpha Beta pads are a great addition to any skincare regime.

DO NOT RECOMMEND

got this as a sample and used it one night. THREE DAYS LATER my face is still terribly dry and looks flakey. It was almost painful after the first night.

Love

I love this peel! I use it every other day with the brightening serum and it has completely transformed my skin. I had a really uneven skin tone and large pores. My tone is even and pores shrunk. I've been using it for 3 months ans can't live without it.

This is the real deal
Purchased

Don't let "extra strength" scare you. It's actually not very strong, but really gives great results over time. I have oily/combination skin and am acne prone. This REALLY helps keep breakouts at bay and helps to even skin tone. It's really expensive but honestly, this is one thing that's worth it, and I've yet to find a suitable substitute.
