Sephora gave me a free sample to try. I was quite skeptical. No home peel I tried ever did much to change my skin's texture or brighten things up but this product actually did. A little warm and stinging at first but it settles down after a few minutes. When I washed it off, my skin was tighter, smoother and my dark spots were slightly diminished. And that was just one application. It totally is pricey but it gives good results and is easy to use. So, I'm buying some more. I think classic 'european' facials are truly lovely things. More for the personal attention than anything else. A reasonably good facial will leave your skin smoother and brighter from just being massaged so much and this will duplicate that effect without the massage. Perfect for an evening of self-pampering. Enjoy.

I dislike a product taking advantage of people by marketing their product as something it is not, and I also dislike that this product may mislead users into believing they are accustomed to a 30% Glycolic Acid when a real percentage of that ratio might cause some serious damage! I left Brazilian on my face 10+ minutes two days in a row w/o any incident, but my 1st use of a 35% Glycolic Acid Peel was close to damaging my skin in the most sensitive areas after only 2 minutes! BEWARE OF FALSE ADVERTISING!

Here's why I rated it low: This peel is marketed as a 30% Glycolic Acid level peel, but they add a neutralizer to it (the other side of the syringe), which severely reduces the actual acid strength. I read a review somewhere suggesting it might be as much as 10% strength in reality, but I'd be shocked if Brazilian Peels is even THAT strong. I found it to be very weak, and for the price ($20 per application? Are you kidding me?), I cannot justify buying this when I was able to purchase a 35% bottle from Skin Laboratory through Amazon for only $18.95. The SL peel is a 30ml size bottle claiming at least 15 peels, and it really is full strength. Considering the tiny amount I used for face, neck, & decolletage, I think I might get about 30 peels out of the SL bottle (NOT Brazilian), which would mean anywhere from $300-$600 worth of equivalent applications of Brazilian. You do the math: would you rather pay $19 or $600 when the $19 version is the exact strength it is advertised to be? I could barely leave the serious peel on my face for 2 minutes, unlike the weak Brazilian Peel. I was able to leave it on my neck/decolletage for 6 minutes w/o incident since I do not use Retin-A there.

Brazilian was my first AHA peel, but not my last. I got a syringe as a free sample from Sephora, which was great because I was planning to buy it anyway. I was excited to try it, but scared at the same time. I have moderately sensitive skin, and I use a low-dose of Retin-A nightly. Since I have heard horror stories of people burning their faces off with Glycolic peels, I was very intimidated by my first self-peel. I used half the tube b/c I was only doing my face (instructions say to use full tube across neck and decolletage area). I barely experienced any tingling or warmth, and I was able to get through the full 10 minutes easily, even stalling a minute or two before rinsing. After rinsing, my skin was smooth. I liked that it got rid of any small, dry, scaly spots I had from the Retin-A. That was about all that I liked. This alone earns it 1 full star. I was able to repeat the procedure with the second half the next day, and I still didn't experience anything close to a true AHA peel.

I would suggest saving your money and either using a real 35% peel for full effects (I used SL, but there are other great peels available for low prices), or if you are worried about burns, buy a good PH neutralizer to go with the 35% peel and mix them together in a small glass cup before applying so you can get the gentleness of Brazilian Peel w/o the outrageous price tag.

After spending over $40,000 (yes) for prescription products at plastic surgeons' offices and hundreds of over the counter products, I have to say that this gentle peel does what it says! The first time I used it, I didn't listen and put it on my lips and left it on for like an hour. Shame on me! My lips burned and peeled, but my face didn't suffer. Now, I use it for the designated time and after applying it from forehead to chest, I leave it on for 10 minutes. As a 46-year-old woman, I can see how it wouldn't be needed for someone in their 20's at all, but over 40, this works! My face is tighter all over (I do put it directly under my eyes and eyelids cause I don't follow ALL the directions), and it's lighter, like I used a hyperpigmentation cream (none of those work). The results last only a couple days, and you are supposed to use this once a week to achieve solid results. I use it the day before or even the day of a special outing or event, so my face is tight and smooth, and your makeup will go on nicely. From all the products out there, this one is by far #1 on my list for quick, effective peels without burning or peeling, and you can go out right after you use it! I look awake, refreshed, tighter, and my chest area looks smoother and lighter as well. When your read all these reviews, some don't tell their age. If you are over 40, I highly recommend this product for a woman or man! For the price compared to doctor's office products and some over-the-counter products that don't work, this is one month's worth of peels, and it's well worth the cost!

I fell in love with this product after my first use! After just one application I noticed that the redness in my face was reduced and my skin felt softer. I have very acne prone skin. I have spent thousands of dollars at the dermatologist, just to have my problems come back. After one month (4 applications)of the brazilian peel, I didn't have a single break out for weeks. My post acne scars were diminished significantly. The product is a little pricey, but I would rather spend $80 a month for clear skin than hundreds at a dermatologist. I am a user for life. :)

I was really excited when i recieved this product from Sephora- i did a lot of homework and this stuff was supposed to be GOOD!
I did like the product, it just didn't do much for me. I shared the product with my Mom- using half on my face and half on her. She saw pretty wonderful results! I am 24, shes 50. It made her skin glow! After all 4 uses- I noticed no real differences in my apperance, but it was noticable the day of use only. For my Mom- she overall has a more glowing complexion and she looks more youthful after using this product.

This is a 30% glycolic peel, which is difficult to find outside of a dermatologist office. 30% is considered a higher concentration (especially for an in-home peel), and individuals that are not accustom to using glycolic peels will probably experience peeling or redness of some kind. I did not have any of these issues and was very happy with the results.

Once a month I seem to breakout with a few zits. When I time the application of this peel correctly, I can avoid my prolonged breakouts all together. My skin tone is noticeably more even a day or so after application, and after the fourth application-my skin is still becoming more even. I have noticed my pores appear to slightly smaller and less clogged for a few days after application. I do not have many wrinkles but I do have a few line lines-none of had any noticeable reduction after using the four applications.

The product naturally warms as you spread it on your face, and for some can sting a little. Because of the high concentration of glycolic acid, make sure to follow instructions and not leave it on longer than recommended. Right after using this product-do not use a retinoid. I am not a doctor-but from personal experience I can tell you skin will have irritation and may burn a little when an retinoid is applied right after.

Overall I recommend this product to everyone because it has helped with my acne and with a more even skin tone.

Skin type: oily, somewhat pigmented, a few fine lines, acne prone, 20-something

I had read about the Brazilian Peel and was curious to try this product.It is very easy to use, just squirt it into your hand, stir until warm and apply to face and neck area.I was pleased with how it helped to clear up blemishes and tighten pores.I would definitely order this product again through Amazon.

My friend recommended this product to me and though I was skeptical at first, I really liked it the first time I used it. When you squeeze out the the tube, thus combining the 2 chambers ingredients in your hand, you can feel it warm immediately as you mix them. If this isn't a chemical reaction that implies some serious ingredients then I don't know what is. After wiping it off your skin is slightly smoother, firmer and lines are minimally reduced. I have never gotten a peel at a dermatologist but I imagine this to be a weaker formula that won't leave you red and peeling days later. Also I will use half the tube and recap to get 8 applications instead of 4, making it quite a bargain. My acne has diminished markedly since using 4 times and I'm very pleased with this product.
