3.0 out of 5 stars Not necessary for glycolic peels., October 19, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a very nice brush, but I purchased it to use with a glycolic acid peel for the first time because it was recommended for that. If you're looking at this brush to use with a glycolic acid peel, I would recommend simply using a cotton ball. The scrubbing action of wiping a cotton ball over the skin is preferable when using a glycolic peel. It helps to remove all the gunk you're using the peel for. Also, using a fresh cotton ball each time is much more sanitary.

Thank you for making this comment. I was going to get a fan brush because I feel I waste some of the liquid when it absorbs into cotton ball, but you make some excellent points.

Glycolic acids are applied as an even thin layer over the skin. The product does the work of exfoliating the skin all on its own. By using additional scrubbing methods you may be risking your skin to getting irritated and causing further damage.

Also, you may be wasting your product in your cotton ball. You only need a droplet and a half of the AHA, depending on the person's face size. In regards to "sanitation", if you are a trained cosmetologist/esthetician (I will assume that you are not) you should be using QUATS for sanitation, if you are just a regular person using this brush on yourself, think of your toothbrush, do you use a new one every day? An antibacterial soap, warm water and letting it dry completely before storing should take care of keeping your brush bacteria free. Hoping that you are using SPF for everyday protection, as acids sensitizes the skin from the sun you will cause more damage than good in the long run...good luck...AHA's are wonderful products when used correctly!! :-)

@T. Headley,
Sunscreens make my eyes water.
Do you have any favorite sunscreens that you like?
Do you think it matters whether it's SPF15 vs. SPF 50?
Someone told me that SPF past 30 does nothing. Is that true?
Thanks.
Edit:
Also, do you know if it's true that working under fluorescent office light is the same as sitting in the sun?

I found that when I used a fan brush to apply my glycolic acid, I used up much much less liquid - about half of what I normally need.

Environmental working group is a great place to learn about sunscreens. I use Burnout brand sunscreen. EWG gave it a great rating.

Aryudeva makes a great 30 spf. It may be just the thing for sensitive eyes. It is enough for everyday sun exposure such as a typical work day. Up it to at least 50 for extended sun exposure. I don not believe fluorescent lights are the same as sun.
