How Does the Peel Work?
How Do I Use the Peel?
It couldn't be any easier: Once a week, in the evening, after you have washed your face, soak a cotton pad with one vial of Radiance Peel and sweep it all over your face. I usually pour half on at a time. I start by rubbing it gently on my forehead, then work down the bridge of my nose to my chin, then out to my cheeks. I use the second half of the vial on my neck and decolletage. Don't use it on your eye area.
You may experience a slight tingling. I'm one of those weird people who enjoy this, because it makes me feel like the product is really working. Note: Don't wash off the peel.
Let the peel soak in for a minute or two, then apply the Calming Cream (included in the kit), then follow with your moisturizer. Because the peel has glycolic acid, I find that it's best to use a moisturizer that is soothing and does not have any additional alpha hyrdoxy acids (AHAs), which could irritate your skin.

Is the Peel Right for Me?
The Clinique's Turnaround Radiance Peel is recommended for those with oily or combination skins. That said, my skin tends to be on the drier side and slightly sensitive and I was able to use it without any adverse reactions. (I have had peels before.)
The 8-week peel is ideal for when you're preparing for a big event like a wedding or whenever you feel your skin needs a boost.
At $55 for the kit, the Clinique's Turnaround Radiance Peel is a bargain, especially when you consider a single peel at a spa or derm's office could cost twice that.
