I'm a wimp. I'm new to peels... but after seeing my pores in photos, it was time to look into ways to improve the texture of my skin. This forum helped me decide to go with the MUAC TCA peel, and started with 8%, as per suggested. I tried that, read the directions followed to a T. It really burned while it was on my skin, I barely was able to make it 5 minutes! But then with the aftercare, my skin tightend and flaked. There was no redness at all. After about 4 days my skin looked and felt amazing. When I tried it again, I decided to layer it twice to get a stronger peel, but then it burned so bad I only kept it on for 4 minutes. And about 2 hours after, I can already feel my skin tightening. The product probably doesn't burn people that much. I'm not allergic to it, because the patch test was fine, I just think I'm a wimp when it comes to anything painful. However I will say, that it helped my skin look better than it had in a long time, so I will certainly have this as part of my regular skin care regime. And the price?! It's an amazing value (especially when MUAC does their flash sales).
They say this should last six months.. So if it does at $200 it really costs $33 a month... Which for a decent eye cream is a deal. I've been trying a lot of eye creams as I tend to get puffy eyes and also have dry skin.. Sublimage hydrates and I have noticed that my eyes aren't as puffy after a few weeks. I wouldn't say this eye cream turns back the hands of time.. But it's pretty great.
