The most popular of our Glycolic peel line, our 40% Glycolic acid peel is a fantastic balance of no down time and great results that yield smoother, softer and more even toned skin. If you would like to safely take years off the look of your skin in the comfort of your own home, while saving hundreds over having it done professionally, this is a great peel to consider. We carry a full line of professional quality skin care products to help all of your skin care concerns.

Glycolic Acid has long been a first line product of the finest spas and Dermatology offices for improving the skin. For those of you who have heard the term 'Lunch Time Peel', this is the chemical used for it, and it is used by many if not most of Hollywood's most famous faces (women AND men!) and the Rodeo Drive clientele who can afford the best that money can buy. These peels will cost from $75.00 - $500.00 PER PEEL at your Dermatologists office or your local high end spa. Now you can do these peels at home safely and with fantastic results.

Each bottle of our 40% Glycolic Acid Peel will yield approximately 8 peels done at 1 month intervals, a potential savings of $733.00-$5000.00!. After peeling your skin will be feel softer, look smoother, with improved texture and tone and reduced (sun damage). Those are the differences on the surface of your skin. With collagen stimulation under the skin, fine lines and scars are smoothed out. With a peel of this strength, a full course of peels (8-10 peels) are needed to see optimal results.

This is a 30ml (1fl oz) bottle of 40% Glycolic peeling solution, medical quality, pH 1.5 in amber glass to preserve the activity of the product. Along with the peel you will receive a detailed instruction manual and a free sample of our best selling Microdermabrasion Crystals (one per shipment).

Chemical peels are versatile tools that are used to resurface the upper layers of your skin by loosening the bonds between the dead skin cells that dull your skin, while stimulating the collagen beneath the skin to form and align, which in turn plumps up the fine lines and scars from below the surface. They have been around since Cleopatra bathed in milk (contains lactic acid!) to make her skin smooth. Fortunately, science has made a lot of progress since then and the chemical peels available now are sophisticated and effective.

Glycolic Acid is a naturally occurring chemical belonging to the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) family. Derived from sugar cane, this important AHA is the smallest of the fruit acids and is able to penetrate the skin, allowing it to effectively dissolve the 'glue' that holds dead cells on the surface of the skin. The dead skin cells are what cause a dull, uneven skin tone, and the blocking of pores leading to blackheads and acne. This dissolving action of the Glycolic Acid allows the dead cells to slough off, leaving behind a smoother skin surface with clear pores. This also helps stimulate collagen formation under the skins surface which helps plump up the skin from beneath, smoothing out fine surface wrinkles and superficial scars.
Our 40% Glycolic Peel is a mild Glycolic acid peel and is suitable for all skin types and both beginning and experienced peelers. There may be some redness right after the peel, but generally there is not much if any actual peeling (hence the name Lunch Time Peel, you can go right back to work after you have it done). The 40% Glycolic peel is very safe when used as directed, but is a strong, professional strength peel (pH 1) and should be used only as directed.
As with all products, a patch test is recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel.

This peel is very easy to use, you simply cleanse, apply, time it, neutralize (Baking Soda (Sodium Bicarbonate) and water) and rinse. We include very clear instructions on how to use this peel
After you have applied the peel, your skin may be red, this is normal and will fade quickly. You may wear makeup to tone in down if you would like, just make certain that the makeup can be removed easily with a gentle cleanser, no scrubbing or harsh treatment of the skin is allowed for 1 week post peel. About 2 days after the peel your skin may start to flake and peel slightly. You can encourage peeling by using warm compresses and taking hot showers, but please do not pick at the skin! It must come off when it is ready to, not when you are ready for it to! By peeling off the skin you risk scarring by exposing skin that is not ready for the world yet, so allow the skin to shed on its own.
As with all exfoliating products, the use of sunscreen is essential to obtaining the results you are looking for. If you are not able to commit to using a sunscreen, this is not the treatment you should choose as you will just damage your skin all over again! Chemical peels should not be used on any sensitive areas of the body, including but not limited to the underarms and groin/genitals.

40% Glycolic Peel March 27, 2015
Reviewer: Sharie from Northern MA  
I did this peel today.  I was scared of how it would feel because this was my very first peel.  I followed instructions to the letter and used a cotton ball instead of gauze to apply it.  It barely stung at all and for me, was very tolerable.  I was planning on leaving it on for only 1 minute, but left it for 3.  I had a wash cloth soaking in baking soda solution in a bowl with ice and it rinsed my face off perfectly.  I did my whole face, and it was great.  I used a peeling moisturizer from this website and my skin feels good.  I plan on doing this once a week for 6-8 weeks and will report back after I'm done.  I thought my skin was sensitive, but this peel was mild for me, I love it!

Great product February 16, 2015
Reviewer: Jaq Napoli from Highlands, NJ United States  
applied around the cheekbone area on my left side, and i applied a little to the very edge of my eye (where the crows feet end - close to the temple). Instantly, the lines disappeared! :) i had bought this product with the intention to smooth out the texture of my skin & possibly fade some sun spots, NOT make wrinkles disappear-you can imagine how happy i am right now. I am on day 3 post peel-it isn't sore to the touch just a bit dry.I am very excited to see what the skin looks like after it has totally healed. All in all, i am very impressed with this product & if all goes well, i will be a forever fan and definitely branch out & try their other products!
TIP: PLEASE DO NOT LET IMPATIENCE RUIN YOUR FACE - DO A TEST PATCH AS THIS IS UNFORTUNATELY NOT FOR EVERYONE.Oh & TIP 2 :) if you break out this is just your skin purging itself of impurities-if you can carry on with any aha products,you will start to see a massive improvment in the texture of your skin.

Great Quality Skin Care Regime for Men January 4, 2015
Reviewer: Steven from Concord , CA United States  
It did sting as I applied it to my face and even more with the baking soda solution. My face turned red after, nothing too bad. By the third day, I noticed minor dryness and flaking, aquaphor really helped. By the 4th day, my skin looked healthy, even and moisturized again.  It really took off some of the December wind burn and some of this past summer's sun damage. I will use this peel every 3 weeks to keep my skin healthy through the dry windy winter and maintain it once every 1-2 months during spring. This saves me so much money from going to a dermo. The hardest part for me was trusting my self enough to apply acid to my face. If you can get past that, you'll be fine.  Moreover, once I saw the end results and  realized how easy and inexpensive this is, I became a satisfied customer.  
*Side note: Just because it's extremely easy to apply and the results are great, don't over do it.  Stick with the directions accordingly, do your research and ensure good after care.

Acid peel October 9, 2014
Reviewer: Roseanne Daede from Bowdle, SD United States  
I used this peel and my face broke out with severe acne the very next day.  I left it on for only 5 minutes.  Maybe I should have used a 20% or 30% peel, but is this common? I am not usually acne prone and I can't even bear to leave the house right now.  I am still hoping that this will clear up and I will see some improvement in my skin tone.

Very happy with the results September 11, 2014
Reviewer: Sara from CA United States  
I have to leave a review to say thank you to the Owner, Julie. I love her products and every time I email her asking for tips, she answer right way. Very good costumer service. I'm happy that I found Skinobsession. I don't need to buy products anywhere else because this is the real deal.
This peel is wonderful and you should give it a try. Follow the directions and can't go wrong.
