Glycolic Acid 35% Peel

Glycolic’s small molecule slips between the epidermis and stimulates collagen growth beneath the skin to minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
SKU: G35 Category:
Glycolic/35 is one of our most popular peels. It is a professional strength peel that is safe to use at home with generally no downtime! Glycolic acid generally causes little or no visible peeling, so it can be used without worrying about going out in public.

Glycolic Acid: The Workhorse of the Alpha Hydroxy Acids

Glycolic Acid is a superficial peeling agent that is made from sugar cane. It is often considered the most active and beneficial of the Alpha-Hydroxy-Acids (AHA). With repetitive and continuous use, improvement to skin tone and texture occurs. Once inside the skin’s cell, glycolic acid will serve as a catalyst for the formation of new collagen which will reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the skin’s surface. It’s small molecule allows it to slip beneath the epidermis to reach the collagen fibers below and results in 15%-25% thickening over 12 weeks. Glycolic acid has been proven to be very effective in the treatment of hyperpigmentation, melasma, actinic keratosis, acne, and oily skin, as well as other cosmetic uses.

At-Home Peels, the Skin Cleansing Wave of the Future

Our peels provide you the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of professional results at home, for a fraction of the cost. The 30ml and 100ml bottles are best for full facial applications. For specific areas, or spot treatments, we recommend the Glycolic 35 Roll-On.

Proven Effective

Clinical research and patient treatments clearly prove that AHAs are effective in helping to keep the skin clear and healthier. The research also confirmed that the majority of AHAs have larger molecular structures that do not penetrate the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) without high concentrations and lower pH levels. Glycolic Acid is the most adaptable and beneficial AHA. Its tiny molecular structure allows it to penetrate the epidermis to accelerate the body’s exfoliation process. It “loosens” the glue that bonds the cells together, allowing thickened and dead cells to “disappear.” The end result is smoother skin with better coloration, tone and texture. You will see improvements in cell renewal, firmness, texture, reduction of fine lines and increased moisture levels.

A Safe, Controlled Peel is the Way to Go

The goal with a safe peeling regimen is to cause the skin to come off in a controlled way, with each peel taking off a few more layers of accumulated skin. With each application of the peel, the results are incremental. You should notice results within the first couple of applications, and the tone and texture of your skin will continue to improve as the layers of old skin are slowly removed to reveal new skin beneath.

Glycolic Acid 35% Peel SKU UPC Model
Dec 28, 2010 by nordgirl

I bought 35% glycolic peel to try to get rid of wrinkles in the decollete area. After long and exhausting treatment of skin candidiasis, my skin over there became too dry, and a s aresult I got very visible wrinkles. Apart from this, I have pigmentation a

Made me breakout
Dec 26, 2010 by Natalie

This product is awful! I bought it hoping to reduce old acne scarring. I normally have maybe one or two small pimples a week. I really had high hopes for this product, but after using it my skin got extremely dry and I developed a scab on my chin which I thought was the "peeling." A couple days after I used it I had the worst breakout of my life. Probably about 50 pimples. It was awful and just in time for Christmas. I do not recommend this. My skin looks worse than ever.

I notice a difference!
Dec 25, 2010 by Cindy Guernsey "cweezie"

Both my niece and I have been using this for about 6 weeks with noticeable results. While our acne hasn't completely gone away yet, it is much much better and we've both noticed that our skin is much smoother, we have fewer breakouts and our makeup seems to go on and stay on better! I put it on my entire face and neck once a week for 10 minutes and then rinse off. I also use a small amount every morning and night mixed in with my face lotion. Definitely give it a try at this price!

Better than expensive plastic surgeon chemical peels!!
Dec 21, 2010 by J. L. Kenny

I use to work for a plastic surgeon and have given many chemical peels and did have one my self. The down time of the peel and the 6 weeks prior to use the Obaji system was too much. This is gentle yet effective. YES you have to use it more than once but it has no down time with ugly red and peeling skin. I get instant softness and gradually I have seen the smoothing of the wrinkles and large pores. I highly recommend this for weekly use to get the desired results VS a chemical peel. I will order the stronger strenth when the bottle I am on is gone, but only because I want to get alittle more aggressive.

I noticed some sun damage a few months ago, I was getting big brown freckles on my forehead and some drying on my cheeks and nose. I had gone to a spa for some peels but it was getting pretty expensive so I started looking on line and found Skin Laborator

changed my face
Dec 09, 2010 by Ginger Blitz

this stuff has changed my cosmetic world - i have always fought with adult acne, and while i still have a few zits at any given moment, the skin between them is nearly pore-less, super-smooth, and even seems to have better coloring! I'm really impressed! I've also started using 70% on my hands (they look about twice as old as i am) and i see a difference already...I have very very dry skin but am sensitive to most moisturizers, very frustrating. this stuff takes care of quite a bit of that by exfoliating differently...2 or 3 times a week, before my a.m. shower, i put the 70% on the tops of my hands and then 35% on my face, neck and chest (i tried 50% but ended up flaky & dry) - wait a few minutes, then jump in the shower (no scrub!)you are supposed to apply moisturizer right away, but i use Korres anti-aging primer under my Korres SPF 30 "tinted moisturizer" and everything is perfect!Korres Quercetin & Oak Age-reversing Primer 1.01 ozKorres Watermelon Lightweight Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 2 Medium HoneyUSE SUNBLOCK (or makeup with sunblock).i wish i had discovered this sooner! yes, it can get a bit worse before it gets better, but wow is it worth it!

Did not work for me
Dec 09, 2010 by Collegestudent

Unfortunately, this product only helped in creating my problem worse. I am dark skinned and had some acne scars left over from my acne days so i thought I'd give this a try. Ive never done anything even close to something this strong and I do have sensitive skin so the Glycolic acid irritated my skin, and gave me pimples, which in turn gave me more acne scars. I did some research, and once source did say that darker skin tones don't really benefit from this peel and make the condition worse so I'm chalking it up to that. Although, initially i did feel that my skin did become softer and smoother before my acne reappeared. This product has tons of good reviews so I'm sure it works for other people. It just wasn't for me,

u r ur best cosmetician
Dec 06, 2010 by bella

it is true that u r ur best cosmetician: nobody knows ur skin better and if u pay attention u ll know what ur skin needs. This product allows very cheep and effective approach to skin maintenance. I ve applied it on the oily part of my face-T zone, without applying to more sensitive areas, and the effect is simply fabulous - it exfoliated and shrinks pores, makes skin feel supple and silk-like. great tool, but again should be handled carefully so skin doesnt get damaged.

If you are looking for a new beginning, this is it!

I have had bad skin since my late teens. Mostly from not knowing how to take care of my skin, and listening to the wrong people about how to take care of my skin. I used to bust bumps with needles when I was a teenager, and in my early to mid 20's, not knowing that I was doing damage to my skin. I have a lot of acne scars, big pores, pock marks and discoloration.I have that type of skin that if I stand under a light, my cheek area and temple area look like someone, or thing has been biting on me with sharp teeth. Pock marks galore. It had gotten to a point where I did not like what I was seeing when I looked in the mirror, and it appeared that it was getting worse. I had become very self conscience and leary of getting close to people in conversation because of my skin.I am African American, a light complexion, but not real light. I am a fairly handsome 43 years young male, who only looks 23, but, the bad skin truly takes away from appearance and what I really look like. I remember when I had baby smooth skin when I was young and I truly want that back. A couple of years ago, I called and inquired about getting laser surgery to correct my bad skin, but I was told that laser surgery was not for African Americans.I was a little shocked, because I thought that laser surgery should be for whoever wants it, regardless of their nationality. I also called a doctors office about laser surgery and a peel and was told that it was nothing that could be done about my scars or pock marks. So, I took it as me just having to live with bad skin for the rest of my life.I tried all types of coco butter to lighten and smooth my scars, but it really didn't do anything. I tried different types of vitamin E creams and moisturisers and they did make my skin a little better, but it did nothing for the scaring or the total doing away with dark spots.One day last week, while I was looking at myself in the mirror, I said to myself, I am better than this. This is not who I am. I said, I want a new beginning with my skin. I realised that the areas of my skin that was damaged was dead. I mean, you could look at it and see that there was no life to it. It was a light grayish looking.I was sitting on on my bed and lookig out of the window and thinking about what could be done to heal my damaged skin, and I heard the words, chemical peel. Amazon came to mind, and I looked up chemical peel. I read a lot of reviews before I decided to get the 35%. I was scared, but, what did I have to loose, nothing else was working for me.I received the peel on 12/29. I tried a little area on my forearm, but I didn't feel anything. Ok, I started to feel a little disappointed because I read some reviews that said when they received their peel, that it was water and it didn't work. So, I went for it and put some of the peel on a cotton ball and put it on my face and I could feel it working as soon as it hit my skin.It burned, but not where I couldn't stand it. I started at my forehead and came around to my temples, cheeks, nose, chin and by my ears. I tell you, I could actually feel it getting down into my skin, and I saw a change in the bad areas right away. Seriously, it was like the peel was eating away the old skin.I left it on for more than 4 minutes, but not past 10 minutes. I washed my face in cool water really good and pat dried it. There was little reddish irritated areas on my left cheek bone area, but that went away after I put Good'N'Natural pure vitamin E oil on my face. This was about 6pm, and after I put on the vitamin E oil, I could still feel a tingling in my skin, all over. I kid you not, even after I went to bed after 8:30pm, I could still feel the tingling throughout the night.When I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror, some of my pours had gotten smaller, and some of the pock marks are gone, and the other pock marks are not as outstanding as they were. Matter of fact, the ones on my temple cant be seen, and my skin has a glow to it and looks good. I am not kidding. I had a lot of uneven tone and spots on my forehead area and that has evened out some and the spots have gotten lighter.I had this nice size scar on my right cheek bone that was dark in color and it could clearly be seen. The mark has gotten smaller, and it has faded a little, but I know as I continue to use the peel, that mark is going to totally disappear, I can see it.I had a nice size semi dark spot on my left temple, and you can barely see it now. This peel is mangnigicant. I keep looking at myself in the mirror, and it keeps getting better. All of this only after one use. Already I can stand the 35% with no problem, so when I use it tonight, I am going to leave it on for 10 minutes. I will use this and then go to the 50%, if I need to.I plan to use the 35% every night. If not on my entire face, I will spot treat areas that I want to totally disappear, and from what I am seeing and feeling, a clean, clear beautiful new layer of skin is emerging. I ordered some Ponds Rejuveness anti-wrinkle with Lacto-nutrients & Collagen Cream.I read a womans review on this and she said that this is good for someone who does peels, because it also has lactid acid which helps with pours and firmness of skin and wrinkles. Once I receive it, I will put the Ponds cream on as a moisturizer after I use the peel. This combination should really make my skin look fantastic. Until then, I will use the pure vitamin E oil as a moisturizerIt appears like the women really know how to take care of skin, so, I am following their lead on this one. Its working so far. Thank you ladies. Sorry men, we suck in this category. I am happy about whats happening and I am feeling better about myself more and more. It is now 4:55pm EST, and as I write this, I can still feel tingling in my left and right cheek and some on my forehead and left temple area, no lie! This stuff works!Thank you Skin Laboratory for caring about our skin, and taking the time to create an inexpensive chemical peel that works just as good as paying hundreds of dollars for. If you have been thinking about getting this kind of face peel, do it. It will make you feel so good about what you see. If you get it, and it doesn't do what you want, you may need a higher percentage. Don't give up, keep trying, even if your told that nothing can be done. Faith is the key to move mountains and to change situations. Prosper, and be in good health, even as your soul prospers. Live well. :)

Great product. Tingled a bit on the third use since I applied more than I did with the first and second try. I did see a difference in my skin after the second week.

Works Great!
Nov 28, 2010 by JACharron

I originally bought this to fade my tattoo, but I tried it on my face to see if it would get rid of the wrinkle lines on my forehead. After three weeks (using a once a week regiment), my forehead is looking fantastic! I read the other reviews about the roll-on applicator being difficult to use. If you read the directions, it recommends rolling the glycolic acid onto a cotton pad and then using the cotton pad on your face. I find this much easier to use. The roll-on applicator is useful for applying the glycolic acid to my tattoo, which is fading quite nicely.

Received half bottle
Nov 24, 2010 by Phenix "SukiSuki"

I got my product really quick BUT half the product had spilled. Received less than half bottle. They should do a better job in securing the product so this doesn't continue to happen. However i am getting a refund so i guess that's great.

Great product!
Nov 23, 2010 by Nicci

I've used Scarzone, Mederma, and whitening soap in order to fade my acne scars and how only seen minimal improvements. I've been using this peel for 3 weeks (so far), once a week, and have already noticed a huge difference in my skin's texture and my acne scars are fading. My makeup looks smoother and I don't need to put as much on to cover up my scars. This is definitely a great product and I highly recommend it.

using per directions for a month - no difference! Nothing. Feels tingly, like something is happening, but nothing nothing nothing.

Not sure yet....
Nov 15, 2010 by D. Coleman

I've been using this product twice a week for close to a month leaving it on for 10 minutes each time. I haven't noticed a difference yet, but there's still a lot in the bottle. I will continue to use it until it's gone...maybe by then I will see a difference..?

Works pretty good so far
Nov 15, 2010 by mamafrahm

I just used this product for the first time 3 days ago. I have OK skin, I've been having a lot of breakout around my chin and mouth, mostly blackheads, a few whiteheads and some of the deep 'cystic' acne too. I have to say that the next day a lot of the whiteheads were gone, my forehead is completely smooth(i had a few little pimples scattered on my forehead) and the 2 big cystic pimples have come up to the surface and are now almost gone! I was VERY skeptical about trying this... I have tried MANY other acne washes, creams, etc.. I will definitely keep using this product. It tingled a little but it wasn't anywhere near unbearable. I was able to keep it on for 4 minutes, although I think next time I will leave it on a little longer. Great product!!

Glycolic Acid 35% Gel Peel
Nov 08, 2010 by wendy alexander

Glycolic Acid 35% Gel Peel is a great product. If you are new to peels this would be a good one to start with. I have used peels but never purchased one to do at home so I started out with a lower acidity. It does tingle but I next time I will purchase the 50%. This does not make a mess and is easy to apply.

reat Product
Nov 04, 2010 by spsx11

This peel really works. I have been using it for about four weeks. My skin is a lot smoother, less acne for sure, my sun spots are smaller and lighter and easily covered. I had a baby two years ago and suffered from dark spots on my upper lip as a result of hormonal changes. Gone, all gone! I use it two times per week for 8 minutes each time. I use copious amounts of water to neutralize it and use Neutragena visibly even moisturizer with spf 30 after wards and stay out of the sun now! Great product. I have just moved up to 50%. Burns a little more but is tolerable.

Great skin refresher
Oct 29, 2010 by S. Freshwater "DesertLady"

I must say I wasn't very sure about peeling my skin, I had several peels at a shop and for what they cost I decided to try it myself. It's so easy and inexpensive I couldn't believe it. I love the way it makes my skin feel and with perseverance you can even get rid of some of the small lines. Be sure to use the follow up neutralizer with it and also some Vitamin C cream. Your skin will thank you, so will your husband, or your boyfriend. It just makes your skin feel like new and look fresh. I also used the Lactose peel and they are both great. Be aware of the possible sting you get, after all you are burning off dead skin and some wrinkles so go for it.

Ongoing review - great product!
Oct 27, 2010 by Julia&Twins

I am 35 years old, light skin, oily, with frequent acne breakouts, especially on the cheeks and around the jowl and the chin. I use liquid foundation, followed by powder makeup, followed by concealer - all to cover my scars and lesions. During my last appointment at a laser clinic, I scheduled a prof. peel for $175 to even out my skin. My main wishes were the following: 1. To clear out the skin so I don't have to wear makeup. 2. Minimum down time - I really didn't want any redness or peeling. While waiting for my prof. peel appointment, I purchased this bottle and received it promptly in 2 days, with detailed instructions.Day 1. After the shower (all pores are open, skin is clean), I used the Q-tip to apply generous amount of the gel peel on my face, starting with my forehead, and ending with the chin and neck. I felt very little stinging, and was able to tolerate the suggested maximum of 10 minutes (be smart when you are applying - if it hurts, take it off, if not, keep going). I washed the gel off completely and followed with a moisturizing oil-free lotion. Looked in the mirror - no change. Went to sleep. Next morning - looked in the mirror, saw no pores. I always had large pores, clearly visible from afar. This time - no redness, no peeling, no pores. Picked up the phone and canceled my professional chemical peel. I'm thinking I'll be doing this peel every 2 days (again, be smart - if for you it's painful, don't do it often, maybe every 5-7 days?)Day 3. Applied generous amount, this time it burnt a little more. Kept it on for 10 min, rinsed, moisturized. Next morning saw no visible difference, but! I applied liquid makeup, and realized I don't need powder for my cheeks - liquid makeup alone evened out my skin tone. The jowl line and the chin, however, were still in bad condition.Day 5. Applied using a cotton ball - application is more even, but a lot less. Started with the chin instead of the forehead. Kept it on for 12 minutes.I have now applied this product numerous times (every other day), and each time I keep it on for 10 minutes. It stings badly the first minute, but the rest of the time it just itches. My forehead and cheeks cleared, but the chin and the jowl line did not - however they are peeling slightly. New acne is forming, but is going away in 1 day (instead of 2-3 weeks). I am now using a moisturizer, which I never could before because of severe breakouts. Once this bottle is empty, I'm switching to a higher concentration peel. I hope this helps!

It works well for me
Oct 26, 2010 by B. Harrison

I use it once every 10 days and it seems to help remove dead skin. My moisturizer and makeup go on (and stay on) so much better after I use this product.

be careful
Oct 24, 2010 by Jeri

I would not recommend leaving the product on any longer than instructions say because burns can happen. I made the mistake of leaving it on longer and my face was burned in spots and stayed rough and red for days. This stuff is really strong.

The improvement I was looking for
Oct 17, 2010 by C. Corbett

I have terribly oily skin and have been using a salicylic acid cleanser with a toner. While they were extremely effective in keeping my skin under control, they were not improving it. I felt like I needed to add something else. I opted for this based on the reviews and I'm very happy with the results.Immediately my pores looked smaller and my skin looked like "normal people skin." After less than two weeks there are parts of my skin where the pores aren't visible at all. The oiliness has drastically decreased.When I did the peel, I experienced a very slight burning but nothing that bad. I do mine twice a week for 6 minutes and follow the aftercare directions to a t.I can see how this might be a product that doesn't work as well for some as it does for others but it definitely seems like when it does work, the results are really amazing.

I began using peels in my early 30s through my dermatologist. For the first time in my life, I developed a cyst like acne that overtook my entire upper body. After treatment with antibiotics, I started peeling to correct the pigmentation damage and scar

This product delivers smooth, younger looking skin. I leave on the whole ten minutes and feel minimal twinges of burn. I feel my skin is more youthful looking with less wrinkles. I would highly recommend!

Wonderful product !!!
Aug 31, 2010 by Liudmyla K.

It was delivered by UPS 1 hour ago !I coudn't wait to try this product ! I kept it on my skin for 4 minutes , then I washed it away and used baking soda as a neutralizer. My skin feel so smooth , resilient and 5 years younger ( I'm 26 , but now it's looks like a baby's skin ).Then i decided to use it as a peel for my breast ( I have some stretch marks ) .After procedure which took 8 minutes I can barely see them ! And my skin feels and looks just amazing !At begining I ordered it to reduce the little scars on my face, which remained after moles removal, and now the first result I have no doubt that I will achieve desired result !Whatever it was, I'll write my final opinion after the 6 - week course of application of this remedy.So far I would recommend this product for everyone !

Great Skincare Product
Aug 23, 2010 by Susie Q

I have used this product only 2 times now, and my sun spots have faded tremendously and the wrinkles around my neck are gone! This is an awesome product. I am going to put a drop or two in my moisturizer at bedtime like another reviewer said she was doing. I would highly recommend this product, each day of the week and twice on Sundays--it's really that good. And, yes, it does sting when you put it on but it is only because it is working. I haven't "peeled" any--but I have noticed great results with my sun spots (which are all over my face) and the wrinkles on my neck are gone. I am somewhat disgusted by some of the reviews of others . . . the lady posing as a chemist giving this product a bad review as well as those individuals who have only used it for a short time. Folks, you need to give it time for your skin type. Just because you haven't seen the results immediately as so many of us have doesn't mean its an awful product. It may just mean for your skin condition and the amount of correction needed, it will take some time. Your damaged skin didn't get that way overnight--it took time for the signs to start showing. Hence, common sense (if anyone out there still has any) us that it will not take an overnight remedy to fix. It's a shame someone has to literally point that out.

Skin glows after
Aug 19, 2010 by I. Carmichael "shoppingshoekitty"

I have used this for three weeks at once per week and I really enjoy the product. Skin feels smooth and refreshed after. Will continue to use...

Very good!
Aug 17, 2010 by JoAnne

I think that results will depend a lot on each person's individual skin type and tolerance level. I have used glycolic products in the past and believe that my skin is probably less sensitive than others. I've done this peel once a week for the last three weeks and my skin looks fabulous. I have a bit of an acne problem and this peel clears up the acne and what little newer acne I have gotten is less severe. I live in a dry climate and find that my pores are usually difficult to open and clean out. Since I've been using this peel, blackheads extract easily and the overall texture and tone of my skin has greatly improved. I plan on doing the full six weeks (once a week) and expect great results. It apply it with a Q-tip, works great and doesn't waste much of the product. I have used much less than half the product. I've also used it for keratosis pilaris on the back of my arms (little red bumps). Doesn't seem to work as well on the arms as on the face, though. Might need a stronger concentration for the arms.

Seeing improvements
Aug 09, 2010 by Idahoali

I've been using the 35% Glycolic Acid Gel Peel for about 2 weeks. I started by following the directions, applying it for no longer than 4 minutes, about twice a week. I experienced a slight tingle, but no burning. My skin would feel smooth and firm (but not dry) the next morning. Last week I decided to experiment by adding a couple drops of the gel to to my moisturizer at night. I've used the glycolic creams you leave on in the past, but they were only 10%. Anyway, since using this glycolic/moisturizer combo, I do feel that I've noticed an improvement in my skin tone and texture. My pores seem to be purging a bit, but shrinking as they do. My skin seems brighter and more clear. My makeup is going on more smoothly and I'm wearing a bit less foundation. I'm pleased with all of these things! I look forward to seeing how my skin continues to improve as I continue with this routine!A brief background on my skin: I'm normal/combination but do experience monthly breakouts. I've been struggling with clogged pores on my nose for the past year at least. They're not so bad that others would probably notice, but they really bother me! I've been trying everything to unclog and shrink them. This product may finally do the trick!

Aug 06, 2010 by Megan

I tried this product out of pure curiosity, and fell in love with it after it made my constant acne go away, and my hyper-pigmentation fade to a point where it was hardly noticeable or concealer worthy. I can wear any make-up I want, from thick foundation

I don't know what this is, but it is not 35%,
Jul 25, 2010 by It's me "logitechgirl"

My friend has this and I tried using it. As someone who goes to get 35% peels at my local derm, let me tell you this stuff is not nearly as strong as what I get done there. I do NOT have sensitive skin and I'm the only one in my own circle of friends who can handle a 35% strength peel for a whole 4 MINUTES at the derm before bleeding occurs (in spots where there are acne). Like I said I don't have sensitive skin so a little bleeding is fine with me. I put this stuff on my face and 10 minutes later my skin was not irritated at all. Maybe they meant the entire BOTTLE was 35%. And some reviewers are stating that they aren't even peeling. All in all, I like the stuff, but it doesn't replace my regular out of home treatments.

Have had it on 30 mins and it doesnt hurt as bad as people say!
Jul 03, 2010 by Monica

I have mild acne except when its that time of month and I have blackheads that are almost impossible for me to get rid of. I have tried everything under the sun and nothing has ever worked. My mom started doing chemical peels to help with wrinkles so I did a little research and found this peel. Granted she does the tca peel I was not willing to go that deep and decided to try this one. It burns a little at first but nothing I couldnt handle I have never left it on shorter than 5 minutes. I have it on now and its been on for about 30. I am about to go put a second layer on. It hurts less the longer its on as the first few seconds hurt the worst but even that is nothing as far as pain goes and Im not one to handle pain easily which is why I wont dare try the tca peel even though I know it works wonders lol. But this peel does clear up any acne I have and does make my pores easier to manage although I dont do it often enough for them to go away completely i am hoping that increased use will make them clear up completely. It is a good product to buy and it will help. The pain is not near as bad as some of the other reviews have said as I have had it on for awhile now and I cant feel a thing.

high quality product

Same product found in doctors office

I bought this about 3 weeks ago and have been using it every 4-5 days. It's weird, you put it on and you immediately feel it tingling but afterwards your skin doesn't "peel". I'd say after the second use I did notice new skin that was brighter and not dull-ish looking like the surrounding skin (I used it on my nose). I would say the best benefits of this are that it rejuvenates your skin AND closes your pores. The pores on my nose are significantly smaller than they have ever been. Reduces blackheads as well.

Good product

I was really pleased with how quickly this item came, and I've been using it for some weeks now and it seems to be clearing up hyper-pigmentation well. I'd recommend it to others.

smoother skin

I've only used the product twice and I can tell a small improvement in the smoothness of my skin. I would definitely use this seller again.

peel satisfaction

I am very pleased with the results I got from using the glycolic peel. It was not harsh on my skin and I was able to use it twice a week for two weeks, after that I took it down to once a week and thentwice a month.It also worked really well for my blackheads. My face feels and looks smooth.

Gentle enough for fair skin

This is really great. I'm extremely fair skinned (natural redhead) and it doesn't irritate or burn overly much. I leave it on for 4-6 minutes and moisturize really well with Cetaphil moisturizer afterward, and I, frankly, look amazing. :)

Wow! A great skin care product
May 18, 2010 by Open to great experiences

I recently added this to a new skin care routine based on products I purchased from Amazon. My skin looks AMAZING, much better than when I used to get professional treatments -- and, after the initial investments, far less expensive. Here's what I do:I give my face a good scrubbing, using the Petrika sonic dermabrasion facial brush about four times a week. In between, I use Skin Laboratory's 35% Glycolic Acid 35% Gel Peel once or twice a week. Glycolic Acid 35% Gel Peel, 30ml (Professional) Caution: Start gently, using for only a few minutes, and then working your way to longer times so you don't burn your skin.I also use the Petrika LightSonic Light Therapy System as often as I can, usually while reading, and always apply an SPF 30 skin cream for day, and a wrinkle reducing moisturizer such as ROC at night.When I lost my job, I was upset I could no longer afford the facials and other skin treatments I so enjoyed. As it turns out, my results are much better -- my wrinkles are greatly reduced, and I couldn't be happier.

didn't work
May 16, 2010 by lmoe

I was hoping this product would help with my acne and the fine lines I have. I'm 48 yrs old and have to deal with both problems (lucky me). I think I'll try a higher strength that peels next time. Def start with a low strength to give your skin a chance to get used to the chemical. It did sting. this strength might work for someone with younger skin.

not really into it...
May 14, 2010 by Kristine

First, I just want to throw some information out there from my own experience as well as from some research I did.First of all, some people complained that this caused them to get a scab. This happened to me after putting it on some acne that had been dried out from other acne medicines. I initially thought it was the combination of glycolic acid with the other acne medications, but reading up on exactly how this product works, I found out that it basically causes dead skin cells to just fall off. That is exactly what happened to me, because all of that dry, dead skin was sitting on top of my acne and the glycolic acid literally just sloughed it all off in one gentle motion. This left me with a sight even less appealing than the acne. It was actually a little bizarre because the acne bump was just swept away, which would have been good if it hadn't taken my skin with it. So beware of where you put this stuff.I don't know if it works or not, but I know that I've broken out more since I started using it. I'm not sure if my skin is cleansing itself, but the acne really sucks, and it makes me want to stop using it. Someone else said that they didn't believe that the product pulls water from the cells, but it does do exactly that. This, in turn, can leave parts of your face slightly puffy because the water is closer to the surface. This also happened to me. It went away after about ten minutes, though.I wouldn't recommend this product because it doesn't seem to be worth the risk of possible new scarring, and because so far I haven't experienced anything positive about it.

Wasn't sure about this when i ordered it, since I have very sensitive skin, but it worked very well, and helped to clear up some adult onset acne that was starting to give me problems. At the first sign of a breakout, I give myself a peel, and it helps immediately. Can't beat it for the price.
