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!

Just okay
Sampled

Wasn't a huge fan of this product. I wouldn't refer to it as a peel. It doesn't peel off. You have to rinse off with water. Honestly, it reminded me of Elmer's glue that just flakes in little pieces when being removed from the skin. Really didn't due anything special for me. Will not be purchasing full size product.

I loved this product. My face felt really soft. Would have liked the sample to be larger to use more than once. but overall was a nice product.

GLOWING

This stuff is crazy - sloughs away your dead skin cells without being abrasive like a scrub. Did it twice a week and my skin never looked better. On my LOVE list!

You can see the dead cells coming off your face without using a scrub. It's a bit addicting.

Leaves the skin feeling so smooth

This is a great, easy to use product that leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and refreshed.

As you work the product into your face you have instant effect and the outcome is just perfect.

You need to wash your face thoroughly afterwards as residue can stay on the face but overall highly recommended!

Great peel
Sampled

This was not what I expected, I expected a eel that kind of dried on and left that crusty layer to clean off. This was much cleaner and left behind very soft skin, also my skin is very sensitive and I experienced no issues :)
