Quality product with exceptional ingredients. Peels top layer of skin, leaving baby-like skin underneath.

The Perfect Image 20% Salicylic Acid Gel Peel arrived quickly. The packaging was secure, and I especially appreciated that the bottle itself was shrink wrapped in plastic as an extra safety measure for transit. The outer box displays quite a bit of information and there is a sheet of very detailed instructions and information enclosed within the box. It is important that you take the time to read everything and follow all the instructions to help avoid having a negative experience as depicted by some of the other reviewers and their images.
After reading the previous reviews I was a little nervous to try this product. Internet research generally indicated to start at a lower strength for first-time home peel users.The instruction is to use 1/2 to 1 mL, but the dropper doesn't have marks to get the right measurement, which was annoying. I am very knowledgeable in the skincare department, as I have had acne for 20 odd years, I have done my homework - I can tell you that this product has the highest quality ingredients you will find. The tea tree oil will disinfect any bacteria, and the chamomile and cucumber will calm down inflamed skin. The green tea is also added because it is a powerful anti-oxidant.
I've used this product for about 3 weeks now - it didn't peel the first time (I used it for 2 minutes). The second time, I did it twice in a row for 2 minutes (used it, washed it off, reapplied) and it peeled. It got rid of some blackheads and made my skin look baby-soft. The third time, I used it for 5 minutes because my skin could handle it. This stuff is great. OHHHH yeahh!
