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!

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.

Glycolic Peel Question April 2, 2014
Reviewer: Lynde Magnino from Alameda, CA United States  
I've been using the 25% TCA for awhile now and love it! I also have the 40% glycolic peel, however, it's been awhile since using the glycolic. After using it last nite, this morning I'm noticing red bumps in the area. Will these go away? Is this normal?
Please someone answer this question for me!

So Happy I Found This! September 4, 2013
Reviewer: Suzanne Krupka from Stafford, VA United States  
My sister gets professional peels to the tune of $75 a piece and her skin is just gorgeous.  That's why I did some research and found this site.  I use the 40% peel every 5-6 weeks and just love the results- reduced fine lines and age spots.  My advice to you is to start slowly leaving it on for only 2-3 minutes and work up over time.  I have been using it for over a year now and 5 minutes is my magic number.  I don't think I would get any better results by leaving it on longer as my skin can be very sensitive.  Follow with a rich moisturizer and treat your face with tlc the next few days.  Thanks Skin Obsession!!

Better than a spa treatment September 18, 2012
Reviewer: Annette Bodem from Brooklyn Center, MN United States  
I've been doing spa chemical peels for years.  At home is better because applying it yourself allows you to get a more even application because you can feel where it is.  And, no need to make an appointment and go to the spa, I did mine on Sunday night at 10 pm.

Reviewer: from los angeles, CA United States  
I received my glycolic acid peel a few weeks ago an i love it. I've always used glycolic in lotion or cream form but this is my first time using the actual peel. I also have to say, this company provides EXCELLENT service. They sent me this product with precise explanation,  how to use the product, what to expect...... in a very easy to understand instructions and samples (the same way).  BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE I'VE EVER COME ACROSS.  I will definitely be back for more products. !!!!
