  • Precautions

    Is all of the sun damage you inflicted in your youth showing on your skin now in the form of age spots and fine lines?
    Would you like to brighten and improve the overall tone and texture of your skin?
    Would you 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?

    If you answered yes to any of those questions, you have come to the right place. 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 now you can do these peels at home safely and with fantastic results. Each bottle of our 30% Glycolic Acid Peel will yield approximately 8 peels done at 3 week 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). Collagen will be stimulated under the skin which will help over time to plump up the skin from the inside 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 30% Glycolic peeling solution, medical quality, pH 2 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.

    Peels vary in strength and provide different benefits.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 30% Glycolic Acid 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 30% is very safe when used as directed, but is a strong, professional strength peel (pH 2) and should be used only as directed.
    As with all products, a patch test is always recommended to see how your skin reacts to the peel.This peel is very easy to use, you simply cleanse, apply, time it, neutralize and rinse. We include very clear instructions on how to use this peelAfter 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, however make sure that it can be removed with a gentle cleanser, no scrubbing of the skin allowed.
    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 you cannot 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!

    Excellent Skin Refresher January 2, 2017
    Reviewer: Suzie L from New York, NY United States  
    I purchased this product through Amazon and absolutely love it. The first time I left it on only 1 minute to see how my skin would react. Very little peeling over the next few days. I gave myself another 1 week later and left it on 3 minutes. I waited another week and did it for 5 minutes. I was reading online that you need to wait for the skin to heal or you can thin the skin too much, so for the 4th peel I waited 10 days and left it on for 8 minutes -- until my skin felt headed. I definitely see a difference, but not the kind I got with a professional peel from the dermatologist 20 years ago. However he may have used an AHA peel and it was painful. I can remember prepping retina A 2 weeks prior to the peel and how my skin came of in rather large flakes over a 2 week period.

    I have been very happy with the results from these peels and plan to continue using them at different strengths.

    Another happy user of 30% Glycolic peel December 26, 2014
    Reviewer: GW from Santa Rosa, CA United States  
    Permit me to echo what so many other customers are saying. I've paid a lot of money to have a cosmetic surgeon's assistant apply the exact same glycolic peel to my face. I've got two hands and a gauze pad, I can do it myself, thank you very much.

    Please note that you have to follow the directions. Don't try to be smart and make up your own rules. First time, two minutes. Second time, three minutes. Watch and see how it goes, don't be impatient. You've had years to build up this dead skin so let yourself have two or three treatments to take it off. If you leave it on too long the first time you will have problems.

    This peel is being great for me. I'm gentle with myself and careful about following the instructions. My skin is now... let me say it... beautiful.

    Thank you Skin Obsession. You rock.

    Really Awesome stuff! July 2, 2014
    Reviewer: Destiny from Chula Vista, CA United States  
    I used to get peels but it had been a few yrs so I wanted to start w something light and safe since I've never done a at home peel myself.  The results are very nice, not as drastic as I'd like but it is a light percentage which is safe for beginners, I'm doing it again just leaving it on longer (10 mins) I only left it on for like 6-7 mins. I do see an improvement. So it is totally worth it! and you can't beat the price! it's a great deal and they deliver fast! I got it I think like in 3 days, I was so happy and can't wait to do it again! Thank you Skin Obsession!!!

    Great February 26, 2014
    Reviewer: Sara from Virginia Beach, VA United States  
    Really loved this product. I was kind of weary, considering the cheap price, but boy am I impressed.  I noticed a difference in my skin the very next day.  I will be ordering a higher intensity next time and can't wait.  Glad I found this site!!
