Earlier this year I attended a NeoStrata training day and learned that the whole range are medically driven and clinically trialed and that the creators Drs. Eugene Van Scott (Dermatologist and Master of Dermatology of the American Academy of Dermatology AAD) and Dr Ruey Yu (Dermatopharmacologist) are internationally recognised for making the ground-breaking discovery that Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) have profound beneficial effect on human skin.
The range is actually prescribed by dermatologists frequently in America. NeoStrata products promise to improve visible signs of ageing & sun-damage and treat various dermatological conditions such as acne, dry skin and hyper-pigmentation.

So back to the Treatment Peel I tried out.
This home treatment peel aims to "exfoliate the dead and dull surface layers of your skin to revitalise your skins healthy appearance. High strength AHA's then stimulate the process of cell renewal to reveal new, fresh skin on the surface".
- 4 Facial Cleansers
- 4 Citriate Solutions Pads
- 4 Bionic Face Cream
You start off by washing your face with the cleanser and then you apply the Citriate Soloution to the face using the pad. I pay special attention to my fine lines and any problem areas such as my chin area where I get frequent breakouts. If you are using it for the first time you leave it for only 30 mins but after this you can leave it for up to 3 hours. After this time you wash off the residue once again with the cleanser and then apply the Bionic Face Cream which is super healing and soothing. Now none of these products smell amazing - more of a chemically smell but I don't care if it does what it says.
As I mentioned earlier this is my 2nd time to use this product and I can honestly say it won't be the last.
I had some slight flaking around my nose after the first application but that just proves the exfoliation is working.
My skins looks clearer, brighter and smoother and my fine lines definitely look softer.
And it just seems like there is more of a glow to my skin.
Also my makeup always applies better after using this peel.
This really is a keeper for my skincare routine!!!!
Glycolic Acid is the way to go guys!!!!
Until next time....As always....Be Happy!
