I purchased this based on reviews here and on other sites. I was reassured by the testimonials about how questions are answered so quickly and the service is so good. I also purchased the DNA serum and the 2 percent retinol lotion in the same order. I got free shipping. Amazingly my order arrived overnight, I believe in under 24 hours. So far so good. I was eager to use the pumpkin peel right away, however the enclosed detailed instructions said I needed to use an enzyme neutralizer product before and after the peel. I was bothered that this was not made apparent on the website product page. I would have purchased it instead of one of the other products if I knew this. Expecting to receive the quick response I emailed the company but never heard back from them. So much for their rapid response. Maybe I didn't spend quite enough to merit their attention? In any case not a great experience for a first time customer. I ended up doing some more research and found out some people used the peel without the neutralizer if they did not have sensitive skin, so I went ahead and used it for 3 minutes as directed. There was a stinging sensation before rinsing it off but no redness. My skin did look smoother and actually my husband commented later that my wrinkles looked better, but he may have been trying to get points lol. I used it for 4 minutes a week later. There may have been subtle improvement but not dramatic. I found I could not wait a week to try again so I used it in 4 days and accidentally left in on beyond 5 minutes with no ill effects. It seems like this may not be as potent as claimed. I have no redness or peeling. I follow it with the DNA serum and a drugstore retinol moisturizer in the morning and use the NCN retinol lotion at night. I believe I see some smoothing and definitely no flaking and will continue to use it. One lippie off for no company response to email.

I have purchased this a few times from NCN. This is a strong peel (30%). I had first tried MyChelle's Incredible Pumpkin Peel, and liked that. But as time went on, I found that my skin stopped reacting to it as it had when I first tried it - like the product lost its efficacy. So, I read about this peel and decided to try it. This peel FAR surpasses the effect I get from the MyChelle peel. Also, I feel like I maybe don't use as much of this product as I did with the MyChelle. The jar from NCN lasts me about 10 peels, which is about 10 weeks for me. Since the jar is $25, that's $2.50 a peel, which I think is great for such an excellent product. From their website, this peel is said to: dissolve dead skin cells, firm skin, reduce age spots, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, makes your skin glow, clears acne, and adds more than 100 nutrients to your skin. I can't really speak on the age spots or fine lines and wrinkles since I don't have too many yet, but I do feel that this is great for dissolving dead skin cells, firming skin, making my skin glow, and helping to clear acne. Here are the ingredients: Water, Lactic Acid, Cucurbita Peop (Pumpkin which is high in Salicylic Acid), Sodium Lactate, Glycolic Acid, Galactoarabinan, Propylene Glycol, Vaccinium Myrtillus Extract, Sugar Cane Extract, Sugar Maple Extract, Orange Fruit Extract, Lemon Extract, Xanthan Gum, Cinnamomum Cassia Bark, Ginger Root Powder, Nutmeg Powder, Allspice, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance.

My favorite peel! This smells absolutely wonderful! It has never caused redness on me. After I use it my skin looks so clear. It helps with hyperpigmentation on my cheeks. It gets the gunk out of my pores. My skin feels so smooth afterwards. I use this once per week and follow it with NCN bioactive night cream.

It's 25 dollars for ounce and I purchased it at Pro Pumpkin Peel Exfoliate is KEY to Younger Acting, Looking, Feeling Skin. | Exfoliate.It's suppose to expedite the natural skin cell renewal process by ridding your skin of dead skin cells, thus bring forth fresher, younger and more glowing skin.I've read multiple reviews on the product and a lot of people said it left them glowing.I was sold so I bought the product...The 1 oz package is simple. Texture wise, the pumpkin peel feels like a smooth gel-lotion consistency. The smell is of spicy pumpkin. I used the "peel" 4 times so far spacing it about every 2 weeks, as I use Retina A; the directions state that people who already use exfoliating products should use it every 2 weeks.The product would sting my skin for about 30 seconds to a minute then it would subside, then after a few minutes I would rinse my face and apply an moisturizer. Each time you use it, according to the directions you are suppose to leave it on for an additional minute. So say if you use one week for 3 minutes, next would be 4 and so forth.Now reading the reviews, a lot of people said it gives you an instant glow but I never experienced that. I never noticed any results at all.(I have no acne and already have smooth skin. Just used the product to get more radiance.)Subsequently, I suspect because I already use Retina A and because I am young, my skin renewal process is on par, rendering this product nonfunctional for my skin. Nonetheless, I will still finish using up the product. Also, forgot to add but the product may leave you temporarily red.
