Triple Berry Smoothing Peel
Our best-selling peel is back with an updated formula! Triple Berry Smoothing Peel is the best chemical peel to use at home for enlarged pores, dark spots, dull skin, breakouts, and clogged pores.
Thank you for waiting! We’re so excited to launch the new and improved Triple Berry Smoothing Peel. Like so many others, we were hit with supply chain disruptions at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. These disruptions led to a key ingredient in the peel being discontinued. Always one to find the silver lining, Renée decided to use this as an opportunity for a reformulation. Learn more about how the peel has been updated and why you can still expect the same fantastic results.
Triple Berry Smoothing Peel by Renée Rouleau is a professional-strength, at-home chemical peel. With consistent use, this peel improves dullness, uneven texture, breakouts, enlarged pores, and discoloration. Over time, you’ll reveal more radiant, younger-looking skin! This peel contains a powerful blend of brightening antioxidant-rich berries. It exfoliates using a blend of six skin-smoothing AHAs, one hydrating PHA, and an azelaic acid derivative to fade hyperpigmentation.
Size: 1.7 fl oz
- Dry, sun-damaged hands - reveals smoother skin with less visible brown spots
- Sun-damaged chest - removes dryness and lifts discoloration
- Keratosis Pilaris - flattens bumps and gives a smoother appearance
- Synthetic Dyes
Vegan. Never tested on animals.
Feel / Smell / Look
Our Triple Berry Smoothing Peel famously looks, feels, and smells like raspberry jam! We use real berries, so it’s normal to notice berry seeds or slight variations in color from batch to batch.
- Glycolic, Lactic, Malic, Mandelic, Phytic, and Tartaric Acids — AHAs that exfoliate, smooth the skin, and combat breakouts and clogged pores
- Gluconolactone — A PHA that gently exfoliates while hydrating
- Potassium Azeloyl Diglycinate — A derivative of azelaic acid that addresses uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and post-breakouts marks
- Blueberry, Raspberry, and Strawberry Extracts — A great source of brightening antioxidants
- Mirabilis Jalapa Extract, Bisabolol, and Allantoin — Comforting, soothing ingredients known to calm sensitive skin

How To Use
Apply a thin, even layer to the entire face after cleansing. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, starting at the lower end if you have sensitive skin. Once finished, rinse well with cool water. Follow with a treatment product, such as a toner, serum, mask, or moisturizer, for your skin type. Use this peel once a week or as needed.
This peel is perfect to prep for a big event! We recommend using it two nights ahead of your event for smooth, glowing skin.
What is the pH level of this product?
The pH level of Triple Berry Smoothing Peel is 4.0
Can I use this product if I'm pregnant?
Yes! We removed salicylic acid from the peel, and there are no other ingredients deemed unsafe for pregnancy.
If salicylic acid was removed, is this peel still good for preventing breakouts?
Yes, it’s still helpful for combatting breakouts. One of the main causes of breakouts is dead skin cells falling into pores and causing blockages. The new combination of acids in this peel does a great job of removing these dead skin cells so they can’t cause problems in the first place.
If clogged pores and breakouts are your primary concern, we also suggest using one of our exfoliating acid serums with salicylic acid (the BHA Clarifying Serum or the Pore + Wrinkle Perfecting Serum). Since Triple Berry Smoothing Peel is generally meant to be used once a week, the exfoliating acid serum can be used on your other exfoliation nights
How do I incorporate this peel into my routine?
We always recommend patch testing a new product before using it all over. To test this product, apply a small amount to a patch of clean skin on the lower part of the jaw. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes, and watch for signs of irritation.
While this product has been clinically tested and shown to be non-irritating, everyone’s skin is unique. If you do experience signs of irritation such as redness, burning, or stinging, please discontinue the use of this product and reach out to us.
Note: since this is an updated formula, we recommend patch testing even if you used the old formula.
When you do your first full application of the peel, you can also experiment with how long to leave it on. We suggest a minimum of 5 minutes and a maximum of 10. If you typically have sensitive skin, you can start by leaving it on for a shorter period of time and then increasing that time as desired. Listen to your skin, and do what feels best for you!
How much of the peel should I apply?
Apply a thin, even layer on clean skin.
I’m noticing more or less tingling than with the previous formula, is this normal?
Yes, since this formula has been updated and is different from the previous one, your experience with it may differ. The amount of tingling you experience can also vary depending on the state of your skin. A slight tingling sensation is considered normal when using products with exfoliating acids.
Will this product really make my skin peel?
No. While this product won’t actually make your skin “peel,” you may notice some flakiness up to a day after using it. This is because the peel loosens dead cells from the surface of your skin, so you’re seeing them come off. The more consistently you use this peel, the less this flakiness should occur. To minimize flakiness and physically lift away these loosened cells, we recommend using a physical scrub like Triple Berry Smoothing Scrub as a companion to this peel.
What are the benefits of using both the Triple Berry Peel and Scrub?
While acids and scrubs both exfoliate the skin, they use different mechanisms. Acids lower the skin’s pH to dissolve the keratin or “glue” keeping dry, dead cells stuck to the skin’s surface. Physical scrubs, on the other hand, physically lift those loosened cells away by buffing them off.
By using both chemical and physical exfoliation in your routine, you’ll get a more “complete” exfoliation. This 2-step exfoliation method is especially helpful for fading the look of pigmentation for a brighter, more even skin tone.
Why is the color of my peel different than it was last time I ordered it?
Since three of the main ingredients in the Triple Berry Smoothing Peel are real fruits, there can be some natural variance in color. Each season the fruit crop will come out a little differently, which can influence the final appearance of this product. It is still the same formula, just a fresh batch!

Is this product tested on animals?
Where are your products made?

I took your Skin Type Quiz and was wondering if I can use products that weren't specified for my skin type?
Yes. While the skin type product recommendations are carefully selected for the needs of a specific type of skin to give the best results, many people will modify their routine with other products as needed.

I can’t believe you made this better! I’ve used this peel for years and loved it. I got compliments after using it, recommended it to friends, the whole nine. So when I heard you were changing the formula a little, I got skeptical, because why mess with perfection? But the ingredient changes are perfect, somehow giving me even better results than before. One noticeable difference is that the texture basically went from a sauce to a jam…that’s a big deal for application, because it feels like the product goes on so much easier, stays put, and isn’t as messy. I used to be on the fence about the price, but when you think about the multiple quality facials you’re getting out of one jar vs going to get a facial, it’s a no brainer, especially at the sale price. Bravo, Renee! Thank you!

If you have sensitive skin, follow the instructions and start with only a few minutes and then work your way up from there if you can tolerate it. (If you’re like me, you’re used to leaving on masks like this for longer than ~5-10 minutes, but this is a powerful mask.) It’s a little tricky to apply and remove, but that doesn’t matter. The results are good—it really exfoliates well. I’m excited to keep using this to help with texture and discoloration.

I’m SOOOOO happy it’s back! This was my holy grail of skincare and I was devastated when it wasn’t available during the pandemic. It’s a little different now - smells more citrusy and it’s a little goopier BUT IT STILL WORKS IT’S MAGIC! My skin already looks better after ONE time! JUST SO HAPPY!
