If you have adult acne then I have something you should try out. Exuviance Daily Acne Peel is a pad soaked in a formula that contains AHAs and salicylic acid (a BHA) to help clear up your skin quickly. Exuviance is a branch of NeoStrata Skincare. The formula helps to clear pores, kill bacteria, exfoliate skin, control oiliness, smooth skin texture, brighten skin tone and reduce pore size. It also helps to firm skin and rebuild the collagen matrix of the skin, to help with fine lines and wrinkles. Skin is left looking clearer, firmer and more radiant. The formula contains a maximum strength salicylic acid to clear blemishes (pimples, blackheads and whiteheads) and helps to prevent new blemishes form forming. The alpha hydroxy acid blend enhances exfoliation, reduces pores size, and helps keep oiliness at bay. CitraFill® targets collagen and skin matrix to firm skin and smooth lines for anti-aging benefits.
The active ingredient in this product is salicylic acid 2% and the other acne ingredients are citric acid, tartaric acid, mandelic acid and benzilic acid. Salicylic acid acts to exfoliate and smooth the skin, clear blemishes (pimples, blackheads, etc.) by killing bacteria and it unclogs pores through exfoliation, allows skin to heal and prevents new blemishes from forming. The AHA blend (mandelic acid, citric acid, benzilic acid and tartaric acid) acts to exfoliate the skin and clear up pores, has an anti-bacterial effect on the skin so that it kills the bacteria that causes acne, and it reduces inflammatory free radicals on the skin. CitraFill® helps to build up collagen in the skin so that it actually acts as an anti-aging ingredient, causing fine lines and wrinkles to be reduces. It also hydrolyzes to citric acid.
Use the pads once at night. Cleanse skin thoroughly before applying pads. Make sure skin is dry before application, s that the product works better. Using a pad, sweep over clean skin to either the affected area or the entire face 1 to 3 times daily. Avoid the eye area. To avoid too much drying of the skin, start with 1x per day then work up to 3x daily if needed. If too much drying of the skin occurs, or you have bothersome peeling, then only apply once a day or every other day instead. If you are a new used to AHAs/BHAs, apply only to the affected area sparingly for the first 3 days. Then work up to every every day or every other day as needed. Make sure to wash hands after applying so as not to dry out hands. Replace disc and cap tightly after use.
Do not use these pads during pregnancy or lactation. If used with other topical acne products, make sure to watch for irritation of the skin. Only one product should be used at a time. Stop use if too much irritation occurs. Sensitivity to the sun will likely develop. Make sure to use a SPF of at least 30 or more because sensitivity to the sun should likely increase. Keep out of reach of children.
So, how are the pads really? In reality these are great for acne or for anti-aging peel purposes. The ingredients in them are useful for acne or for aging. I use them for both. I still get acne on my chin (hormonal acne) and I use the pad around my entire face. Having smaller pores, reduced oiliness, less acne, reduced fine lines is everything I want in a peel. These peel pads are strong. Using them constitutes using a mild peel on the skin. The are great for those of you who need something for mild to moderate acne and even fine lines. I suggest these for adult acne rather than teenage acne, although they could be used for teenagers too. It is just that teens usually need something a bit stronger. I highly recommend these for any acne that you have. They work really well. I had a significant decrease in lesions after using these pads. And this is during my peak season, summer into fall. The oiliness in my skin was also decreased, as was my pore size. This is an all around great product that works well for acne. It also has mild anti-aging benefits too.
