Glycolac 60% Peel


4.48 out of 5

Combination of Glycolic (25%) and Lactic (35%) acid for the benefits of both in a single peel to target stubborn skin conditions, such as acne and sun damage.

SKU: GL60 Category:
With a combination of Glycolic (25%) with Lactic (35%), Glycolac provides hydration and tone improvements of the Lactic, with the increased collagen stimulation of the Glycolic. It is generally well tolerated because the Lactic and Glycolic work on different levels or the skin.

How Does the Glycolac Acid Combination Peel Work?

The Lactic Part…

Lactic acid occurs naturally in human skin as a part of normal metabolic processes. In normal skin, it helps to maintain the acid mantle of the skin at a pH of 5.5 to 6.0. Also, Lactic acid has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin; it draws water molecules already present in the skin towards the surface, and stimulates the synthesis of ceramides, improving and modulating the functional barrier. Lactic acid also works to increase the thickness of both the epidermis and the dermis by stimulating the growth of new collagen and elastic fibers in the skin, leaving the surface of the skin looking younger and smoother.

The Glycolic Part…

Glycolic acid is a powerful exfoliant that works primarily underneath the skin. Glycolic acid speeds up the body’s exfoliation process by “loosening” the cellular bonds between dead skin cells, thus breaking them apart and causing them to “disappear”. The small glycolic molecule is also able to penetrate beneath the outer layers of skin and stimulate collagen growth underneath, thus eliminating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Just Some of the Benefits:

  • maximizes functional acid levels and solution pH within FDA guidelines for non-physician administered peels
  • provides superior exfoliation due to glycolic acid
  • improves hydration due to lactic acid stimulating glycosaminoglycans production in epidermal and dermal levels
  • less irritating than a pure glycolic peel
  • improves collagen synthesis and remodels existing collagen
  • improves elastin fibers in dermis
  • encourages cell renewal
  • improves the appearance of skin discolorations by dispersing melanin granules more evenly in epidermis
  • increases ceramide levels in stratum corneum

Brightens skin, works over time
Dec 14, 2011 by Booksrock

I purchased this product to help lighten some dark patches on my face..have tried OTC and green cream and nothing helped. Each time I use this, my skin is brightened and I notice it looks "better" overall. The spots are still there, but are lightening...

I bought this product because of sun damage and fine lines. I was scared at first but, it is very gentle and effective! I have had skin treatments with no results compared to this! I have been using it for about 2 months now and have drastic results. My d

My skin looks so good from using this product. I am so happy I found it!

Week 4 - seeing great results!
Oct 21, 2011 by Chriss717

Started using this four weeks ago. Apply with a brush, and I use it once a week. It tingles/stings a bit. I was afraid to leave it on too long, but this last week I removed my "peach fuzz" - then used the product. It really stung quite a bit, and my face turned red like a mild sunburn. I was a bit concerned, but in fact this was the best week yet - very mild flaking and now my skin looks MUCH improved - smoother, and fading of a sun/age spot is noticed. I'm 50, and have oily skin with large pores and some mild scarring. I really see a difference!

Love this stuff! I have been using it for about 2 months. My acne has disappeared! As a bonus my skin is softer, more even, and healthy looking. I still get tiny hormonal single pimples once a month but even that is getting better over time. Because I have sensitive skin I use the peel twice a week for about a minute. I follow with a very light jojoba oil. That's it.After 25 years of dealing with acne, this is the absolute best product I have ever used!

Made me break out in huge swollen bumps!
Oct 02, 2011 by Chikz

I've been using a light glycolic acid peel for years with great results. For the last 6 months I've been using the "Aqua Glycolic" skin care line, which includes a face wash, toner, face cream, body wash and body cream. I used to have really bad cystic acne along my jawline, but Aqua Glycolic products changed my life. I don't use all of their products every day anymore, but I use at least the face cream once every 3 days to keep up my smooth clear skin.My skin has been really great, but since I'm getting married late October, I thought it would be great to try a stronger peel. I want to look my best for my wedding day and since I've had great results with glycolic acid in general, Glyco-Lac/60 seemed to be the next logical step.WRONG! I kept it on for about 1 minute and rinsed it off with tons of water in the shower. My face felt a little sensitive, but no big deal. Within 5 hours, I could feel a whole crop of pimples developing along my jawline. Since I haven't had any breakouts for over 6 months, this was quite surprising. By the next morning, my entire jawline was covered with huge cystic swollen acne.It's been 4 days and I'm getting even more acne. I don't know what to do because my wedding is 21 days away! I need this to go away quick. I'm so surprised because I'm no stranger to glycolic acid and I only left it on for 1 minute. Also, since I've had such good experience with glycolic acid in the past, I couldn't imagine this happening. Could it be purging my skin of any leftover stuff in my pores? That would be ok, but I hope it finishes the process sooner than later. I guess I'm wearing my hair down for the wedding!I read and followed all the instructions, but everyone is different. I even did a patch test on the inside of my arm. I nearly covered from wrist to bicep and left it on for 1-2 minutes. My arm is just fine and nothing happened whatsoever, so I proceeded to apply it to my face.I'm glad to hear that most everyone else had a great experience. I just wanted to share a different type of experience with those who may be sensitive to this product. I should have left well enough alone! I just though there was enough downtime to deal with any after effects of the peel,

This is a very very light peel. I left it on for 3 min my 1st application and there was little to no discomfort and the results was very very small. I think this is a good product for those who are only trying to refresh the skin not reduce acne marks. I purchased this with a stronger product and my intention is to use it inconjunction with that product.

Sep 29, 2011 by T. Titus (Colorado Springs, CA)

This product is very nice, It has more sensation than just the 35% Glycolic acid. I like it to help fade acne marks and some dark spots on my very light skin. I have only used it twice but I will contiue to purchase the product, it is helping my blackhead

Sep 26, 2011 by A. Scott (Tucson, AZ)

The delivery was surprisingly fast and well packaged. The peel I was a little scared of, as my skin has a tendency to overreact to everything, but so far (only two uses) I'm very pleased -- it does sting, but that goes away instantly with rinsing, and my

It's just ok, no big deal...
Sep 24, 2011 by Candiecutie

I am a brown complexion african american female. I purchased this product with the intent that it would lighten the dark marks on my legs. I only used it in my face once and it burned like hell. Ultimately, I did a series of four treatments over four weeks. There is absolutely no difference in my dark marks except that they are a little lighter...just by maybe one shade. If I were to purchase another peel, I would definitely get a higher strength. This one doesn't peel at all. It was my first time, and now I know what to expect. Two stars because I was fooled by the reviews on this product, They are extremely overrated and I'm just here to be real and tell the TRUTH.

Great, not too harsh
Sep 22, 2011 by Nicole Riggle "Nicole3891"

I am 27 and I do not sunburn easily...not at all really - so I certainly don't have sensitive skin. Still, I had never done any sort of peel before so I was cautious - I left the peel on for 2 minutes the first time, 3.5 the second and 5 full minutes the third time - all spaced 1 week apart. I felt tingling, nothing major. The third time I did get some red peeling on my nose (I had a cold, so it may have been more sensitive bc of repeated tissue action), but otherwise minimal flaking. I just used my olay brush in the shower and cetaphil moisturizer with spf 50. Quite a few people have said that my skin looks great :) so it def worked - skin looks smooth and clear.This is gross, but the peel removed the top layer of dead skin, so my black heads all came out super easily. The lactic acid is supposed to be good for undereye circles, so I tried applying it there (VERY carefully). I made sure to do this portion of my face last since I was a bit nervous to use something on such a delicate area. Surprisingly, it didn't burn or peel horrible at all. I can't really tell yet if it is working there though, since my undereye circles are so dark...One more thing, I used alcohol to remove my skin's natural oils, applied the peel, waited the prescriped time, and jumped in the shower, rinsing my face for a few minutes. I tried the baking soda thing and really didn't like it.

Sep 21, 2011 by A. King (McDonough, GA)

So far, I love this stuff! I have used it twice and seems like my pores are a little smaller and texture of my skin is improving. Nothing too drastic yet, but time will tell. i had a similar peel called a sensi peel for rosacea at a spa and it cost a lot

Sep 16, 2011 by A. Piccoli (Lake George, NY)

Omg! I was so afraid to use this but it's so gentle and after the first treatment my skin felt so smooth and the next day or two it started glowing! My skin was red for a few hours after and i have sensitive skin. The next day I couldn't even tell. Just m

Right on!!!
Sep 06, 2011 by goodlip

Ok, so Im 37, and started to get the large pores and fine lines... I used it four times, once every five days, and I just got carded for cigerettes yesterday. My friend said my skin looked like it had been raised in a petre dish with no stress. My skin is super soft, pores are smaller, lines are diminishing. First time I used it, my skin was soft, that was about it. I didn't start seeing results intil the fourth time, real results, that other people see. So hang in there, and keep up with the once every five day treatment. It burns a bit, but was tolerable, atleast for me. Ok, so maybe itching and stinging but hey, no pain no gain, right?

Pretty Good Product
Aug 30, 2011 by Jen Mom of Twins

I am happy with the Glyco-Lac/60,Level 2 Gel Peel. Being a woman of color in my early 40's with very sensitive, blemished skin, I have always had to be very careful with what I choose to put on my face. This product is working very well but you have to follow the directions carefully. I have noticed my skin is clearer & the wrinkles are less noticeable. I have used the same bottle 3 times already and I can see the change which is nice. And the price is Much less than if I went to a doctor for this same peel. I saved around $300.00 My advice to anyone thinking of using this is be patient. It works. I am a very satisfied consumer.

Strong, really works
Aug 28, 2011 by D. Coon "traveler"

Careful~ I have been using this product for 4 months now. I still find that this is a strong product, not to be taken lightly! Do not use this product if you are using a retanoid creme, or under any other topical treatment for acne. Read the instructions very carefully and follow to the T, before you use this. And rinse it off completely. I used this once every 7-10 days for the first month, now I use it about once every 2-3 weeks. I get busy, and I'm not so good with weekly routines. When I first used it, I left it on only one minute-- with noticable difference~ Wow. My skin felt so smooth afterwards, no redness. Each time I use this, I can tell immediately after rinsing, the dead surface of my skin is gone. The second time (one week later) I left it on for 2 minutes....with some redness afterwards. So I went with 2 minutes about 10 days later, did better. The 4th time, I left it on 3 1/2 minutes~ had some redness for @ 4 hours, and the next day, some mild tiny sunburn like stripes on my upper cheeks. Lesson learned. So now....I just max out at 2 minutes. I feel safer. I don't want to hurt my skin. Please watch out with this product! It is strong. I know a few ladies have posted "no redness or burning," but everyone is different. This is quite strong for me. I put Avalon organics Vitamin C face serum on afterwards. My skin looks bright and fresh after use, feels super clean, and a few lines I had have softened, although I don't have deep lines. It has helped lighten up some freckles/pigment on my lower cheeks that I did not like. I would never use this on my neck, its way too strong, keep it well away from the delicate eye area! It is not meant to be put on thin skin areas. This product is a professional strength product.

Finally... Something that works!
Aug 09, 2011 by AwesomeTown

I purchased this item a few weeks ago, and since then I have used the product 3 times. The first time I was a little bit scared that I was going to burn my skin, so I only left it on for two minutes. I'll be upping my time to about 4 minutes next time around. I am in my late twenties, and I have acne scars, as well as current acne to battle. I also have very large pores around my nose and cheeks. I am seeing a difference in the clarity and notice my skin getting softer. My pores also seem to be cleaner, and less prominent. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with the same skin issues. You will definitely feel the tingling, but nothing unbearable. But you will more than likely start seeing a difference in your skin pretty immediately. I also cleanse with a mixture of water and baking soda to balance the pH after washing with plenty of water. I am currently using this product every 5 days. I hope that this product continues to work, as it has for my sister who is 3 years older with the same problem skin. Her skin looks great!!! And she's been using this product for several months now.

Our Little Secret
Aug 07, 2011 by Sensual Satine

If you've had chemical peels before and know how your skin reacts, this is a lot more convenient and inexpensive. My skin is not particularly sensitive and I have experienced no after-effects of peeling, sores, etc. No burning at all either. I cleanse my face, use rubbing alcohol to take off any oils and then apply the liquid. I find the area around my nose is most sensitive, so I will apply last/lighter if at all. I also apply to neck, decolletage & tops of hands (all cleansed & alcohol'd). Keep on approx 10mins (that's ME). Wash off thoroughly. I apply moisturizer for sensitive skin afterwards and deliberately do on a "no makeup day". I am religious about sunscreen - you will feel some sensitivity from sun for a few days. After 3-4 days, I will swtch from gentle cleanser back to stronger glycolic cleanser & moisturizers I've graduated to stronger pure glycolic peel now - but I have noticed definite evening of skin tone, improvement of fine lines & pores seem tighter. I was doing peels every 2-3 weeks. One thing to keep in mind. I am not one who gets pimples often, however EVERY time I do a peel, I will get a few on my chin & around my nose. Otherwise, my face is super-smooth and glowy. I turn 40 later this month. Most people think I'm 33-35. (I had to decline being nominated for "35 Professionals to Watch Under 35".) My dermatologist - who I don't see for "face stuff" says he wouldn't rec'd a single product or procedure in his arsenal. I don't attribute it all to this, but it's definitely one of my "secrets".

I love this combination for my skin. I first used it about 18 months ago, switched to glycolic acid alone, and have now gone back to this product. I burns less and there's no visible peeling. Most people guess me to be 15 years younger than my age. It's b

I have used this product for almost a year and it is my favorite. Always be sure to go by the directions and use correctly. It is important to work up to the higher percentage. The results are great.

Exellent Quality Peel
Jun 19, 2011 by C. Estelle "myopicwriter"

This product goes on smooth as olive oil, tingles instead of stings, and does it's job effectively without damage, burning, par boiled lobster face, huge patches of dark dead skin, or heavy duty peeling. In short, it is simply a product of amazing quality. Glyco-Lac/60 gives you all of the benefits of improved skin clarity and a quality healthy glow, without any of the downtime associated with peels. Afterwards, my face felt so tight, I simply love this stuff! As for post peel moisturizing try: a 100% Hyaluronic Acid Serum and/or emu oil {If you are prone to breakouts like me, try mixing a tiny drop of either or both into your moisturizer and adjust the size of the drop to suit you skin. i.e., a full drop breaks me out, but half a drop mixed into enough moisturizer for my whole face and neck, leaves my skin is so moist, dewy and unbelievably supple}. Wishing all a peaceful soul, a kind heart, a happy disposition, and true beauty, both inside and out.

Must have product!
Jun 14, 2011 by Fran Stojek "Franchesca"

This is my first time using the Glyco-Lactic combo peel. I used the Lactic Acid Peel before and really liked so I thought I would give this one a try. I have fair sensitive skin and this is amazing! It really decongests the skin and makes it nice and smooth and clear. Be careful and read the directions so you do not get burned! Especially around the nose area can be very sensitive to these peels. I highly recommend this product!

Jun 14, 2011 by S. Campbell (Gilbert, AZ )

I bought this peel in order to improve my skin and from reading all of the great reviews I decided to purchase. I love these peels because it has improved my skin and the size of my pores. You do break out a day after but it does improve and then it looks

Jun 04, 2011 by Mountain Desert Dweller

I had started my peel process with the Glycolic level 1. Since this is 'first time use', I was cautious on doing this very lightly..after all, it is your face. After a use of about (6) treatments I did notice a small amount of change. Note that the bottle is for a (6) treatment application. I went very light on each use, and still have 1/2 the bottle left. Never really felt but a slight 'tingle' and only left on for about 3-5 minutes. Did not notice much redness or peeling, just a bit of 'flaking'. Followed directions to the letter. Since this was slow process, (on a well-used sun-baby geezer), I decided to try the Glyco-Lac/60. Recommended for heavier blemishes and sun damage. Did the same as above, slow start until comfortable. Started seeing a bigger-faster result. Moved up to a full 8-10 minute application period. I now am noticing much faster results. More redness and heavier peeling. On applying it is more of a tingling-warm effect,(nothing painful). I have not had any 'blistering or heavy scabbing'. It does take longer for the redness to diminish. But it positively is working. Since my face has seen a lot of years in the sun, many of the spots are deep, so it is a matter of time before they are much lighter or gone, and that is fine, as long as I achieve end result. I will use up the 'Lac 60' and save the 'level 1' for follow-up and touch-up. As other 'reviewers' have said: Pay attention to the application process and do not expect overnight results. My skin tone is more on the olive-side. As a kid always got a heavy tan without redness or burning, rarely ever peeled. So take your complexion in consideration.

Good product

I initially bought this chemical peel solution to make some sun spots disappear. It didn't quite happen all the way, but I still like the product. It makes my skin look younger and my pores smaller. You just have to be really careful!!! I have burned my face a couple of times for leaving it on too long. The burn is not noticeable and goes away quickly, but it's still better to keep to use precaution. I don't recommend doing your entire face on the first try because if you are too sensitive to it you'll be really screwed. Overall though, I like it. Once my bottle runs out I will try to buy a higher concentration.

Don't expect miracles right away. Just like anything, discoloration takes time to fade. If you do it every 5 days religiously, it will work. DON'T USE RIGHT BEFORE A BIG EVENT you'll look like a sun burn victim use it on a Friday night then take the weeke

dewy, clear skin
May 11, 2011 by Decorating Queen

I moved up to this level 2 peel after about a year of doing less intense home peels with products from the same company. As always, the quality of product is excellent.I use the peel twice a week during fall, winter and spring months. In the summer, I avoid these peels, unless I know I will be out of the sun for 2 weeks at a time. First, I clean my face thoroughly with my Clarisonic, which I have found gets my skin cleaner than anything. I dry my face thoroughly, and apply a thin layer of the gel peel, which I let sit for between 5 and 7 minutes.Yes, it stings. Not unbearably, and it diminishes as the peel begins to work.When the time is up, I rinse my face (usually I've been in the bathtub, shaving legs or whatnot) in the shower with lukewarm water. I do a quick pat dry with a towel, leaving my face damp, and then immediately apply moisturizer. I've found that Cetaphil cream and a drop of matrixyl oil, which contains glycerin, make the perfect ultra-rich and irritant-free moisturizer, which soaks right in to the skin after a peel. It's soothing and those peptides get right where they need to go this way.I am 50 years old, and I've been doing this routine, with variations, for a few years. I have minimal crows feet and no other fine lines or wrinkles. My skin is clear, glowing, and healthy-looking. I had adult acne well into my forties, but between Bare Minerals makeup and the peels, that's a thing of the past. Even the little whiteheads and tiny bumps I used to get around my jaw or hairline are gone.

Glyco-Lac/60 Level 2 Gel Peel
May 02, 2011 by Melissa Tarazon

I have, for the past several years, bought anything that said "wrinkle" or "sun spot" remover. I have also been using an alpha hydroxy cream for the past several months (over the counter strength). I used this new peel for the first time, leaving it on my face for approximately 3 minutes. I primed my face by cleaning it with a cotton ball and alcohol to strip all the oil before applying the peel...the gel burned/tingled but not uncomfortably so and immediately stepped into the shower when the 3 minutes were up. My face was slightly red, no irritation and it was not tender at all...I followed the recommendation of no makeup for 24 hours as well. Within 48 hours, my skin seemed clearer and is also looking a bit tighter with what seems to be, a noticable improvement around my eyes and pore size. I will wait 10 days before applying another treatment and hopefully, will continue to see good results.

First Time Peel - Love it!
Apr 29, 2011 by Jaime Collins

This was my first adventure in chemical peels, after years and years of acne treatments. I've been around the block in terms of acne treatment! My skin was dull, flaky, and wrinkly. I was very nervous to try this peel, and left it on for a few minutes. There was no peeling or redness the next day, though my skin was slightly sensitive at first. My skin texture improved immediately, and my pores look better. There was no real improvement in number/frequency of breakouts, but my overall texture has improved. I've since used it many times, once every five days or so. The results get better after each use. I also use oil free acne wash, a benzoil peroxide mask and moisturizers with sunscreen. This is a great peel, don't be afraid! I just used a cotton ball to put it on, no need for a fancy brush.

Beautiful Product

I started out with the Skinlaboratory Glycolic 35% and found good results first applying Salicylic 20% for a couple minutes to clear surface debris, then Glycolic 35% for 10-12 minutes before bed. This product (Glycolac 60%) is even better. The lactic acid seems to moisturize my skin. The very morning after using this my skin has such a healthy even glow. I am only applying it for about 3 minutes but increasing the time with each application. I am doing a peel once per week, sometimes skipping a week. It has not burned me in the least so far. My acne scars have become more shallow. I think with enough time and use the scars will be gone completely. Definitely remember to use a SPF moisturizer and\or makeup in the following days.

My skin has never been this clear!!!
Apr 23, 2011 by HP

I ordered this in February and used it the day I received it. I swabbed some on with cotton gauze, left it on for about 5 minutes and rinsed my skin for a few minutes with cold water before splashing a mixture of cold water and baking soda (prepared beforehand) on my face. I left this on for a minute and then rinsed. I felt very minimal stinging while using the peel and almost none after the baking soda and rinse. I did the full 6 treatments spaced 4 to 7 days apart. I had no visible peeling or flakiness, but my skin became clearer, softer and more even-toned every time I did the treatment. It's been about a month and a half since my last treatment and to my surprise my skin has stayed almost completely clear. Even my usual hormonal and stress breakouts only produced a couple tiny blemishes that disappeared quickly on their own. I have spent twice as much on glycolic acid products that irritated my skin and didn't produce a quarter of the benefits of this product. This stuff is amazing!!! I highly recommend it for anyone with acne-prone/combination/sensitive skin like mine

No peeling!
Apr 21, 2011 by TheSocks

Definetly stings going on but has not made me peel like using Retina-a which is nice. I've used this peel 5 weeks so far and the little bumps around my hairline have disappeared and my skin looks generally better but not a super dramatic change, just improved. Also a bit of improvement around some lines around my eyes... Don't want to get it too close though. Would recommend this product!

no effect
Apr 17, 2011 by d

I used this serum twice already and at the second time around I even left it for 5 minutes and it did not seem to have an effect on my face no flaking it did sting a little but I expect to have flaking which it did not at all.

So far, so good
Apr 09, 2011 by Coleplay

I've used the product 4 times so far. I can't really tell if it's helping in any way. It does tingle when I put it on, and feels like it's working. I'll use it one more time and then stop for a while, as some other reviewer had mentioned that it shouldn't be used in the summer months.

Helps, but not as good as Salicylic 20 for me
Apr 07, 2011 by bumm

I've only used this for a couple of times, but it seems like the Salicylic Acid 20% from the same company works better on my skin. Wasn't as strong as I thought it would be and couldn't notice any results to speak of.

I usually don't make reviews (this is my first one) but i had to make an exception for this peelI'm an African American male and I have had problem skin throughout most of my adolescence (I'm 24)I tried all your over the counter washes and they were only a temporary fix...2 applications of this peel has done more than anything else hasA regimen of Cetaphil cleaner and 2 1000MG B5 Vitamins daily along with this peel every 5 days has cleared my skin completely and my skin tone is becoming more and more even by the dayWish I woulda found this in high school but better late than never :-)

Very good peel for a first time user
Apr 05, 2011 by Sinclair1

I had never used a peel before so I purchased this one to start off! After just one use you see definite results. I use this every five days for ten minutes, the "burning" is VERY tolerable. I was an indoor, every other day tanner so I had a lot of discoloration in my face. After two uses, I am comfortable enough to go out with out make on! My skin tone has definitely evened out, my pores have shrunk and i think i have gotten TWO pimples since i began using this two months ago! Over all I am very pleased with my purchase but I am ready for the real stuff! I have tried this on several friends and after just one use, they have ALL purchased this as well!

I love being able to give myself a peel at home. I bought two different peels and use about 2 x a week. I can't believe the results. I have gotten so many compliments on my skin.

Excellent, gentle, and it works right away!

3/26/11:Only used it twice, and for only one minute each time, and I've got to say: I'm pretty impressed. I don't have overly sensitive skin, but I've never had a peel, either. It's not "used to" this kind of stuff. Yet I didn't have any stinging, irritation or dryness whatsoever. IMMEDIATELY after rinsing my face with water, I could see a difference. It wasn't a huge difference, but it was noticeable. I decided to go ahead and use it on my chest, which has some pigmentation and gets more acne than my face. Again, I saw a difference right away. My pores were smaller, lighter, and I couldn't even squeeze anything out of them for a couple of days...but they didn't look "full" like they used to (if that makes sense). The other major thing I've noticed is that my face and my chest are both way less oily than they usually are! If I understand how the lactic acid is supposed to work, it's supposed to help moisturize. I'd say it definitely helped, as my skin obviously doesn't feel the need to produce as much oil after only two peels.3/30/11:Third try, I left it on my face for 3 minutes and on my chest for 5. Once again, zero irritation and no peeling, and my skin was noticeably improved right after rinsing. That's saying a lot considering I have very, very fair skin and every single scratch I get leaves some sort of pigmented mark for MONTHS. I did get a couple of very small and fast-healing whiteheads here and there, but I haven't developed any real pimples in over a week now. That is simply amazing. I'm hooked.

Happy with this product. I just tried this for the first time last night so I can't speak to its long term efficacy. So far I'm impressed.What I can say is that I sure am glad I tried it on a weekend and not a work day.It did not really hurt while it was on. It stings a little. I left it on for 90 seconds. It washed off easily and did not leave my skin feeling sensitive. I'm a retin-a user and familiar with the sensitivity that comes with getting a bit too much of that and this was nothing like that.And then I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror. Apparently I did not avoid my eyelids as well as I thought! While it doesn't hurt at all, my face is red high on my cheeks and on my upper eyelids just under my brow. (I'll be more careful there next time.) I could probably cover it with make-up if I needed to.I'd say the way it felt is comparable to a mild spa peel, except that the spa did a better job of missing my eyelids.I'm really glad I did not order the stronger version of the glycolic only peel. This stuff seems plenty strong.I'm giving it only 4 stars because at this point I cannot accurately report on its effectiveness. This review will be updated after I've used it for a while.

Glyco-Lac/60 has been working great for me

This stuff has quite a strong chemical odor, and it does burn a bit when it's on, but from my experiences it's totally worth trying. I started with 1 minute and while I was afraid that I would get peeling and redness I didn't get any in the least bit. I think around the 3rd treatment I started to see a real difference in the texture and clarity of my skin. I've been to dermatologists and tried every product I could find to help my skin and I can't believe that I didn't know about this stuff! I haven't gotten any new blemishes at all since I started using this. My husband noticed the difference and actually tried it...never expected that. But it's hilarious, now he's like, "Let's go do a peel!" He's on his 4th or 5th and he has been washing it off after 1 minute because he keeps thinking that he's going to get peeling and redness, but he's never had a bad reaction. Regardless of him only leaving it on for 1 minute each time, there have still been improvements to his skin texture and tone.I will definitely order the peel again, I kind of want to try the 206 one but I worry that it sounds much stronger than this one, at least by the reviews.

Amazing... works perfectly for my skin.

As far as face treatments go, I've tried just about everything. Before using this peel, I had unsuccessfully used the Salicylic Acid 20% Gel Peel, from the same seller. For whatever reason(s), the Salicylic acid did not work well with my skin, nor did I see any positive results. Contrary to this peel, the Salicylic peel dried out my skin and was quite uncomfortable during the application process.With that said, I moved onto this particular peel. I started with the Level 1 (Glyco/30) and eventually bumped up to this particular peel (Glyco/60). Since using this peel (3 months ago), I have noticed significant changes in my skin! Not only have I noticed, but my friends and family have noticed as well. I am constantly asked what I use on my skin... something that never happened to me before. I use this peel about once a week (sometimes once every two weeks) and couple it with Jason Natural Ester-C Lotion as well as a SPF top coat during the day (Olay Complete Ageless Skin Renewing UV Lotion). This peel works very well with sensitive skin, although you should definitely start with the Glyco/30 and work your way up to the Glyco/60.Ultimately, this peel worked amazingly well for my skin. On a side note, it didn't help with my stubborn blackheads, however, it helped even out my skin tone and ultimately it helped give my skin a smooth and flawless appearance with minimal foundation on my nose and chin. Highly recommended!

This is a great at-home alternative to super expensive facials at even the best spas...I use this in combination with my at-home steamer (then I finish off with my own peptide formulas)...great for regular maintenance as well as for in-between facials. W
