I'm a first time tca user and was really scared but i got sick of my sundamage and wrinkles 2 forehead wrinkles 2 between brow wrinkles one wrinkle each side of my mouth and acne scars. So i ordered 15% tca peel and 40% mandelic peel from make up artist choice and got it a 6 days later. Super fast shipping as i'm in Canada very detailed instructions and they are great so helpful with helping you pick the right treatments for your skin. And affordable $97 including shipping i got enough for 40 tca peels and a sample size mandelic acid peel which is a pretty good amount. I primed my skin followed instructions and it went well only my cheeks had a light frost no discomfort at all so i removed it early at about 3 minutes, and it started peeling on day 3 and peeled a lot till day 8 and my skin was looking good. I repeated 2 weeks later and it worked better i had frosting in spots on my forehead cheeks and nose area etc forehead it stayed on 5 minutes and everywhere else but when my nose and cheeks frosted it was at the 2-3 minute mark and they were the last area i applied it to so i removed it all and wow it worked much better the morning after i feel like i have a bad sunburn and am a pink colour so i'm not planning to add a second layer on my third peel unless there's no frosting at all it may feel like it's not doing much but it is so be very careful and don't go overboard untill you get used to it and know how your skin reacts to the peels if i put a second layer on with the first or second peel i think that would have been way to strong. Im inpatient and want fast results but don't want to have burns and scars and than be slowed down by that, iv had very good results so far one side of my mouth the wrinkles gone acne scars are gone and sundamge is almost all gone all from 2 peels

I really like this; it gives me a glow, my skin looks more hydrated and smoother, and makeup goes on better. I don’t think about it much until I run out - then I realize I need more!

Love MUAC, but this was a total dud for me. Did absolutely nothing for my skin at all.

I bought a sample size of this peel to try and improve the couple of discoloration I have on my cheeks from past breakouts. I use retina a and Paula’s Choice BHA exfoliating liquid daily but stopped both for a day or two before the peel and after. I’ve used MUAC TCA peel and the TCX peel and peeled A TON from the TCA, very little from the TCX (the TCX also didn’t do anything-at all- for my skin). I didn’t want the downtime of the TCA again so since this is described as not causing peeling I thought I’d give it a try.
I did the patch test, waited a day, all good so prepped my skin and applied the peel using a fan brush. Stung a tiny bit but nothing terrible. Set my timer; about 3 minutes in my face started to feel itchy and hot. I fanned myself and waited out the full 5 minutes before washing it off and applying Argan oil. My face was a little pink for an hour or two then back to normal. I saw no difference the first time, but now after two more (5-7 days in between peels) I can see a noticeable improvement in the brown spots on my cheekbones and my pores look much smaller. I’m happy and hope I’ll see more improvements as I continue to use the peel. The MUAC website says it takes about 8 weeks for noticeable improvements and I have gotten a great start I think...

This is great stuff! Mandelic acids is one of my favorite peels, so this gives you a great light peel without the discomfort of the other popular acids (lactic, glycolic burn a bit more for me). One thing to note is that you should cover dry or damaged skin with vaseline and make sure the acid doesn't cover those areas. I had a bad cold and decided to do a peel, and forgot that I needed to protect my poor raw nose. So my poor nose got a much deeper and painful peel than intended.
