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!
