The product works great. Its super strong. and smoothes skin.Read More
They want **.** for one peel at a Spa, follow the directions and you will reveal new skin. I use it once a week!Read More
Please time test on your skin...It is a wonderful product, but the recommended time on packaging maybe too much (burn skin) or too little (nothing happens) for your situation...Read More
I have used the product once, exactly as directed, and I noticed a change very quickly. I probably should use it a few more times before I can honestly give it an "excellent" rating, but it just might be that good. My skin is softer, and it even seems to be less oily. I've also noticed an improvement in my subaceous hyperplasia, which I didn't expect. You do need to carefully follow the directions, though. I can imagine using too much of the product or leaving it on too long could definitely mess up the results.Read More
I haven't seen the results from the product, the only change I have noticed is the completion change which is lighter that normal.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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 !!!Read More
This product is easy to use and so long as you follow the directions there is little to no burning like some of the other reviews said. I have scarring on my face from the military and this product (used regularly) has seemingly helped with the scarring some. Make sure that you apply a toner and good moisturizer after you use it and WEAR SUNSCREEN. This product really is spa quality for 1/10th of the price.Read More
Questions & Answers
It did not make me peel. It burned my skin though.
Is this product ok for the upper chest area -Sun damage here from years of exposure.
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.
Which peel would be best for dark spots, like the pregnancy mask?
Hello skyerik, Thank you for inquiring about the Perfect Image Glycolic Gel Peel with Retinol and Green Tea Extract. Unfortunately we are not licensed health care professionals, and can not give that kind of advise. Thank you for shopping with us.
I honestly don't know I have some dark spot it doesn't work on the dark spot but very good peel :)
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.
which is better perfect image glycolic gel or lactic acid for aging skin?
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.

Best Wall Ideas for Baby's Room
With the arrival of your new baby drawing closer, you'll want to do everything you can to prepare, including furnishing and decorating the baby nursery. A baby nursery that is filled with all the right touches will give your infant a bright and beautiful place to start life. The wall decor can set the mood for the entire room, so start with art and decorations that are fun, interesting, unique and special. Wall art appliques. Removable wall decor appliques and decals offer some of the best ideas for a baby's room. Printed plastic and vinyl wall decals come in a variety of colors and designs. Opt for a themed collection of wall art images and create your own mural, which you can easily rearrange or remove as your child grows and you want to change the room. There are also decals that display words or phrases, such as well-known lines from nursery rhymes, prayers or beloved children's books. These look especially precious when posted on the wall above a baby's crib or cradle and can set the theme for the whole room. Framed art. As in any room, framed art can be the best way to add interest and beauty to nursery walls. Art is always personal, so choose a piece or grouping that speaks to you and your family. A lovely print of a mother and child or a toddler with a stuffed toy might move you, or you may prefer something whimsical and bright. If you have not yet settled on a theme or color for your baby's room, the perfect piece of framed art could be your best inspiration. Quilts. You have probably contemplated in great detail, if not already selected, the bedding for your baby's room. What you might not have considered is using a pretty quilt to decorate the wall. Quilts make lovely wall hangings and, with elaborate patterns and multicolor pieces, they let you tie together several colors in the room. Find a large quilt that harmonizes with your nursery decor or arrange several smaller ones in a delightful wall grouping. Letters. It has long been popular to decorate a nursery with letters. Spell out your little one's name with lovely, polished silver letters hanging from ribbons above the crib or use bright, colorful letters to showcase the alphabet or your little one's initials. You can add letters to your child's nursery in a variety of ways, from hand-painting them right onto the wall to utilizing lovely lettered wallpaper.

Check with parents to find out their planned nursery theme before buying or choose neutral decor items. Large nursery items such as baby swings, rockers, bouncy seats and walkers are great gifts and will be very useful for the parents. Meal time. Babies need so many accessories to get them through the day. Feeding accessories make very useful baby boy gifts. Cheerful dish sets and baby bibs with witty lines are gifts that make meal times memorable for a baby boy and his parents. If you have a generous budget, consider larger items such as high chairs, baby booster seats and travel seats. Clothes and accessories. A baby can never have too many outfits. Consider the time of year and local climate and choose clothes and accessories that fit the seasons. Undershirts, pajamas, sleepers, shorts, T-shirts, pants and pairs of jeans are safe bets for baby boys. Hats, jackets, socks, shoes and mittens make useful gifts as well.
