I have tried the sample kit for a few months. This product is the real deal. I previously had a series of peels at a spa and loved the results. As an esthetician, I decided to do this much less expensively at home. (My spa does not deal with peels). Make sure that your skin can handle something this aggressive...how does it respond to retinols, vit. c, high aha products. I now own the full size kit...service was very fast, but the acid bottle was not filled all the way. Not sure if that had to do with the formulation and contents? Will def. buy again.

UPDATE: Since finding NaturaLisse GlycoLine, I'm no longer using this. While its still excellent, and admittedly tons cheaper, it just doesn't give me the results that NB does. And NB delivers without the burn.
This is hands down the best glycolic acid peel out there, and I've tried them all. Makes my skin absolutely glowy, has faded some dark sun spots on my chin, is making the pores on my face less noticeable with each use, and my skin hasn't been this smooth in a very long time. I use this once/week, immediately followed with emu oil for a few hours. I also use MUAC's Gly-Luronic Acid Serum (15% GA/50% Hyaluronic Acid) each morning under my spf30. The combo seems to be working beautifully.

So far *both* M/UAC 50% glycolic acid peel & 55% lactic peel have been superb for my mature, normal-type skin. [[However, as another reviewer mentioned, I don't use my M/UAC acid peels 'alone' but in conjunction w/ copper products -- in my case the SuperCops & several other products from Skinbio although they might now be available from M/UAC too.]] ... ... Both acids have helped improve overall facial skin texture, but otherwise for me the biggest difference is which 'more-specific problems' each has improved ... Glycolic: age spots (on hands as well as face), small scars, small moles (on body), & various ugly, annoying, but harmless lil 'barnacles of age' (as my derm cheerfully calls them) ... Lactic: sun damage & related pigmentation. ... [[Btw, another reviwer here happened to mention a 30% *BHA* acid peel which stung more than the M/UAC 50% glycolic (glycolic is an *AHA*) -- er, yeah I'd think it MIGHT, seein' as how BHA % in OTC face products is only about 2 to perhaps 10%?! ... I'd guess ppl are probably more familiar by now with how high they can go (comfort-wise, skin-problem-wise, etc) in various-AHA percentages than in BHA percentage.]] ... Oh and *before* trying M/UAC peels or any other DIY methods on spots, marks, moles, unusual pigmented areas, etc -- I very strongly urge you to have a dermatologist check them out.

First of all, I ordered yesterday and have it on my face right now. They included (for free) a small Green Tea Cleansing Bar and packaged everything neatly in a little purple net bag. Very nicely done! I am wondering though if this is really a 50% peel because it isn't stinging me very much at all. My mother gave me a 30% BHA peel which felt MUCH stronger. Will update this again when I see the results. UPDATE: This is great stuff. My skin feels tight, looks great and I'm losing blackheads by the minute.
This is kind of like the PC 8% AHA and 2% BHA stuff on steroids. I really, really like this. The bottle I got was about $72 and it will easily last a year.
