NeoStrata Company, Inc. is located in Princeton, NJ and develops and markets a comprehensive range of clinically-proven skin care brands including NeoStrata, Exuviance, CoverBlend, NeoCeuticals and NeoStrata Therapeutics.
I’ve been familiar with the company for about a year now and have been very pleased with their products. They’ve also been very helpful and great with customer service. I really like this company.
Doing some more research, I found that the creators of NeoStrata Company, Inc., Drs. Van Scott and Yu are internationally recognized for making the groundbreaking discovery that Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) have a profound beneficial effect on human skin. Their subsequent research established that AHAs are not only beneficial in the treatment of dermatological conditions, but are also effective in stimulating prematurely aged or damaged skin to actually rejuvenate itself, thereby revolutionizing the treatment of aging skin.
Sounds great, doesn’t it? So when Neostrata offered for me to test and review their Exuviance Performance Peel AP25, I was interested and excited to try it.
I have been really into skincare lately and I honestly can see the difference if you use the right products. I wish I had started when I was in my teens or early 20’s, but, at that age, I was out in the sun just having a great time. In any event, I wasn’t sure that products could help if you already had fine lines and the start of wrinkles, but I’m finding out that some actually can.
This product is a 25% Alpha Hydroxy Acid peel and comes with a 6-week supply. You can read more about it here.
It came in a box that opened like a book, with the pads on the right side and instructions on the left. It’s a very easy process.
This is my experience after using the peel for a few weeks. First of all, I had never tried a peel. But, I can tell you that this was extremely gentle on my skin. I had no irritation, no stinging, no burning. Very mild. I used it twice a week for a couple of weeks.
After washing my face, I applied the small round Activator pad to my face and neck area, avoiding eyes and lips. I went about doing other things. It really didn’t bother my face at all. After 10 minutes, I applied the small circular Neutralizer pad to the areas where I had applied the peel. It felt cool and soothing and so very easy and with no mess whatsoever. I imagine if you felt any discomfort, you would just use the neutralizer right away as it stops the exfoliating action. If 5 minutes seems right for you, that’s fine too. Again, I had no irritation whatsoever.
Now, I simply washed my face and dried it and felt my skin. It was super smooth and soft and looked brighter. I went around asking my family how my skin looked and my sister said it looked fresh and glowing. She wanted to try it. It’s always good to get a second opinion from someone you trust.
As I’ve been using it over a few weeks, I am noticing that my skin looks bright and the fine lines are lessening, My forehead and cheeks are totally smooth, even the small crow’s feet I had. The only area I am still working on are the laugh lines around my mouth, but, I’ll give that a bit more time.
I’ve used exfoliators before, and I believe it’s very important to safely and effectively remove the dead skin, but I don’t think I’ve ever had such a deep treatment that you can do at home or such good results. I really am pleased and will be continuing to buy this product after this package is through.
