I had been trying to increase my usage of glycolic acid in my skincare routine by jumping from a cream with 5% glycolic acid to 10%. But my poor skin objected! Just too painful for my sensitive skin.
But a new way to use glycolic arrived on my doorstep several weeks ago: Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel. With its 6% NeoGlucosamine Formula, Exuviance says it provides “all the benefits of a peel without irritation”. They are absolutely, positively telling the truth! No irritation whatsoever!
The scientist/dermatologists behind Exuviance were the ones who originated the glycolic peel years ago, so this is their jam. Glycolic acid provides important skincare benefits especially for aging skin:
- speeds up cell renewal
- improves skin texture and tone
- plumps the skin matrix to firm and tighten.
Because Exuviance is so gentle, I use it most nights often layered with other serums and topped by moisturizer. I am specifically working on fine lines at the top of my cheekbones that are new and disturbing wrinkles. They are beginning to fade and look less obvious, thank goodness.
Exuviance Firm-NG6 Non-Acid Peel comes in a chic, silver jar with a unique pump dispenser. To get the clear gel peel out, just push down on both sides of the top of the container, and a small amount of gel comes out. Very easy.
I apply two pumps worth to my face. Wait 5 minutes till it dries completely and then I apply either another type of serum or my moisturizer.
I like this serum/peel very much, and I recommend it. Also, check out one of my other favorite Exuviance products that I reviewed a while back, Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish. They truly are a dynamic duo!
Have you tried any skincare from Exuviance? If so, which product is your favorite?
