NeoStrata Exuviance Peel CA10 – Review

I am sure all your beauty nuts, like me, have heard of NeoStrata. If you haven’t you should look them up, they have wonderful products for aging and for acne prone skin. They have a reputation out there for really knowing skin and having brilliant scientists working on their team, all to greatly benefit us, the users of their products.

before and after enhanced radianceI was lucky that I was invited to test out Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10, and I tell you that even though I knew their reputation and as a former Cosmetologist, I still was skeptical but excited at finally trying their products on my aging skin. Hey I “aint no spring chicken here,” but that doesn’t mean that I will give in or give up on trying to do and look my best no matter how much time passes me by, after all who would believe a former Cosmetologist would ever give up or give in to the ravages of time on her skin? Nor would you understand my not trying to deal with my past sins of smoking and sun on my skin.

When I was younger I was of the sun worshiping breed, slathering on babyoil from head to toe to start off a “tan” with a burn on my pale pale skin. And then in my 20’s while working in industry I bought memberships to use the tanning beds when my job didn’t allow for days in the sun. I am the type that is difficult to tan, I am fair and sensitive skinned, burning first and then starting to freckle, which I called “blending freckles.” Was my so called “blending freckles” a tan? well,  no… but I knew that the freckles were joining up together, little did I know or think of the future and that I was causing premature age spots on my skin.

Luckily I finally listened to the warnings about the sun when I was forced to by the diagnosis of Lupus SLE, so by my early 30’s I was covering up from head to toe while out in the sun and slathering on the sunscreen, but the damage was already done.

Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10 box insertNow my trial of NeoStrata’s Exuviance, this daily antioxidant peel comes into play in my story. The box includes a blue bottle with the peel contained in it, so that it stays really fresh until you are ready to pour it into the included container with the application pads in it. This is a great comfort since Citric Acid is known to be hard to stabilize and can quickly lose its effectiveness, but I have to say that for the duration of my treatments that the citric acid still felt very stable as NeoStrata is again known for the brilliance of their scientists.

The product tingles some on my skin, but I have to say that I adjusted to that tingle in no time at all. I admit it, I actually liked the feeling that something was happening to my skin and upon first use, I saw my pores look smaller in my mirror. I didn’t experience dryness do to my use of the product, like some may think would happen, quite the opposite was true, the peel seemed to prepare my skin for better absorption of my moisturizer.

before and after smoother texture with a more youthful look from Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10I love knowing that this product fights aging as it’s a stong antioxidant, this is actually made to be accompanied by the use of their Performance Peel AP 25 for even more enhanced experience, use both and I am sure you will see not only fine lines and wrinkles lessen in appearance but you are sure to see a much more even skin tone.

brighter more even skintone Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10Will the Exuviance Daily Peel help without using the above? Yes, it did with me, the antioxidants did a nice job sheltering my skin from pollutants and I even noticed a difference in my age spots as they softened. Also, once again I noticed that my pores showed up less, looking smaller (though no product will change the actual size of our pores, they can cleans them out well giving them a smaller appearance) and my monthly breakouts with this product even seemed to have become less of a problem for me. To top it all off, the moisturizer seemed to better penetrate my skin too.

Before I forget, please remember whenever you use a product like this, you MUST remember to use your sunscreen and I recommend you use at least an SPF 30, others may say SPF 15, not me… I prefer SPF 30 at the very least and even better an SPF 50, make sure that it also blocks UVA & UVB rays!

Good health and a fresh youthful glow is what we all strive for with our skin, I recommend the Exuviance Daily Antioxidant Peel CA10, I hope this helps some of you to decide whether or not you will try this product and I hope that you do. I know I am satisfied with my trial and sold on the product, I hope to give you more tests for you (and myself, I have to admit) in the future from NeoStrata.
