Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I am always wary of putting something on my face until I know the quality and where made. Seeing that Perfect Image manufacturers their products in an FDA registered GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) compliant facility gave me confidence.
I did have a little stinging as expected but I haven't experienced any down time at all. I chose this peel because it has the anti-inflammatory botanical ingredients.
This is a must have product, the first time is used it my skin felt so soft and smooth. I couldn't believe how my skin looked. I felt like I scrubbed away 5 years off my face. I was very impressed with the results. I call this my beauty secret.
Great product, very easy to use, fantastic results...what more do you want in a beauty product? I highly recommend it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. I like that it is a gel, so easy to use
This stuff is stronger than you think. It will peel your skin for sure, if that what you want. But be careful, it is stronger than you think. And you should be very exact at what you want to do. The first time I tried it, I was arrogant and foolish. I thought it didn't work because I didn't feel anything. But then I applied more of it on, not knowing the right amount and it went to work right away! There was tingling burning. I knew that I had put way too much on. But after 3 days, my skin peeled and it left marks from the peel. This is where you have to be careful, when you do a peel and you don't want any marks afterwards, go gently and slowly and define your area of treament. The best way to peel is to have your skin peel without any marks like, letting the skin flake off. I bought this to treat skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation. The peel is hard to control. It gave me what I desired which was lighter complexion in a certain area but I need more the area to be lightened. The product works fine, it's just that I goofed up using it. I was fool hardy and impatient. So be patient with yourself. It's like the saying, Once done it cannot be undone. So be careful, be patient, be kind.

I LOVED the peel the first week.. It burned when I applied it but when I used a fan it helped alot. My skin flaked after 2 days and underneath it looked great. Not sure about long terms effects but it feels exactly like some of the spa peels i had done in the past, although I do not remember which ones I tried. I would say its an overall good product but don't leave it on long unless you want your skin to peel in public. I found out the hard way. Not that big of a deal but sucks going out and try to cover it up.
I've used this product twice and I like it---once you get passed the smell. My skin felt smoother after I rinsed it off. The next day, I did received compliments on my face. That's pretty good for my age !! LOL
I personally think that the bottle should come in a darker color, since knowing that acids do better in less light !!!

Was kind of hesitant to use this, it came with a laundry list of reasons not to use the product and what to do if the product does another laundry list of things to your skin once applied. So I did what any reasonable person would do, ignore all the warnings and just do it. I applied the first application, it stung a little, but nothing unmanageable. Since I wasn't turning 10 shades of red and my face wasn't peeling away, I went ahead and did a second pass. I only let each application sit for a minute, but it said it could sit for up to 10 minutes (I'll work my way up to that). Once I rinsed the product off and applied a face cream my face did feel much smoother. I got to work this morning and the first person who saw me said I looked refreshed. I didn't think much of it becuase I forgot I did the peel. The next person I spoke to I told about the peel and she stated that she thought I had just had sex or something becuase my face was glowing and refreshed looking. So I guess the peel did do something because I didn't have sex. Therefore, I would recommend this product. Hopefully it works even better when used on a regular basis.

I Love this Product is amazing i have already had 4 peels and my face is visibly smoother and clearer i suffer from hyper pigmentation so i have dark spots around my face but i went to a dermatologist who did a glycolic peel for $XXX so i bought this as my first peel to continue using at home but i already order my Lactic acid peel yesterday and cant wait to start using that one so i can really get rid of all the spots i have in my face. I will continue using this product also when i get acne is perfect for acne but not for dark spots that acne leaves behind. Anyways i give it a 10.
I just got it and rushed to the bathroom to put it on my face. It was not bad at all. I actually kept it for 3 minutes on my face and could feel a light burning sensation on my face ,but nothing you can not handle. So far so good.
Mild peel that can be used once a week for a few minutes at a time, preferably at night, before going to bed so that it can do its work and not leave you flushed during the day.
I plan on buying it again because it is mild and helps with the exfoliation of old skin for new luster and healthy shine .
Thank you O.com
Use only on weekend or Friday night, the product SERIOUSLY works immediately, the first time you use it, you will be shocked. It definetly feels like acid on your face, can never leave on more than 20 seconds, before rinsing off. Please use caution when trying. The product actually does what it says!!
Hello, I resently ordered this peel but at 50% strength. I have been using the 30% and have seen good results, but wanted to try something a bit stronger. Will this 50% peel cause peeling? I havent had any peeling with the 30%.nettiebaby777 on Feb 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Is this product ok for the upper chest area -Sun damage here from years of exposure.trisha016 on Nov 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi trisha016, Yes it can be used on the chest area as well as other areas of the body. Although you should be careful when applying the peel to a new area, and should only apply it for the recommended amount of time for the first treatment. On future applications you can slowly increase the contact time if you need to. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 27, 2013

I honestly don't know I have some dark spot it doesn't work on the dark spot but very good peel :)mali67 on Oct 10, 2013
The glycolic or the TCA peel would work wonderfully. I have used both during pregnancy but some would advise against it. It takes time but after a few uses the spots have begun to lighten for me.umama on Oct 14, 2013
which is better perfect image glycolic gel or lactic acid for aging skin?bbqlady4 on May 8, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us bbqlady4. Glycolic and lactic are Alpha Hydroxy acids and come from the same family. I would have to say the glycolic would have an edge over the lactic as far as anti-aging properties. Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on May 14, 2013
