Alpha-hydroxy acids are natural substances derived from fruits, sugar and other plants. They have been proven to be effective in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and fine lines. They work by loosening the glue-like bonds of the stratum corneum thereby gently exfoliating the dead, dull skin cells.
The Key to Long Term Beauty
Exfoliation is the most important key to long term beauty. Clinical techniques of laser peel, derma abrasion, and chemical acid peels are generally harsh ways of smoothing a complexion. ABRA’s Alpha Enzyme Peel is a gentle 8 % apple acid with balancing fruit enzymes that provide gentle exfoliation. Natural lavender essential oil soothes the skin during the exfoliation process.
How To Use The Peel
After cleansing and toning the skin, apply a small amount like butter over the skin. Avoid sensitive eye areas. Allow the peel to work for fifteen minutes. You will feel a tingle while it works. After fifteen minutes rinse off and tone with Restorative Toner to rebalance the skin pH and remove all residue. Finish with a day or night cream. Use the Alpha Enzyme Peel every other day in your cleansing routine. As your skin will get used to the tingle and you can wear it longer, some people wear the peel all night and finish in the morning. Let your beauty last forever.
Pure apple enzymes, raw cane sugar, apple pectin, citrus and vitamin C
Caution: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep out of reach of children. If irritation, redness or discomfort occurs, discontinue use and consult a licensed health care practitioner.
Dilute properly before use.
I finally bought this after years of having it in my wish list. It stings a little but my skin is not sensitive. The smell is incredible, like real lavender, I love it. However the first time I used it, it left a double hole in the center of my face! I guess it was an old acne mark that I never noticed. I panicked after that, I had 2 small holes center cheek below the eye. I quickly put some oil on it & the next day it had keratinized, meaning it was gone. This product removed the dull appearance of my skin and made it look radiant, glowing. Of course the effect is very temporary. I'm not sure how often this can be used but I love the packaging, very minimalistic white look perfect on my bathroom counter and I love the smell and the instant glow. So far as exfoliation, I'm not sure. It's not as instant to remove dryness as another brand I use but it seems more potent at removing surface layers. All and all it's a pleasant experience except for the skin holes and I will probably re-purchase when I run out, if only for the real lavender scent. It's a feel-good treatment.
Be careful with it: it's very runny, and it's very harsh for skin (I burnt my skin, even though I use acids all the time)
Great product! Be carefull combining it with Retinol A though

Great product! Gently exfoliates and cleans up clogged pores. My skin is normal, yet acne prone. I've been using it once a week for about a year now (i also use other exfoliators two to three times a week). Recently I've added an overnight cream with Retinol A to my routine and my skin reacted normally. But several days later when I applied my Abra mask again, I felt my skin burning a bit more then normally. As a result, I got a pretty bad acid burn, my skin was peeling heavily for about a week. Appartenly, some components of this mask reacted with Retinol A. Although, I've been carefully avoiding any products containing glycolic acid and benzoil peroxyde, which are not to be used with Retinol A, this mask haven't raied a suspicion. Be aware ot that, and check carefully what do you combine it with.

My skin improved a great deal after starting this product. I used it about twice a week at first, with exfoliating scrub, and found marks were drastically reduced. Product size is fair for the price as well. Smells natural and fruity and contains nothing questionable by way of ingredients.

It stinks and burns a little as expected. It's runny and jelly-like so it's hard to apply. My skin does appear clean and tight but only for few hours. The ingredients are great but it leaves my dry, mature skin wrinkly of dry patches esp around the mouth. Do not recommend.
Wow, just wow!

Good god, this is such an amazing mask! Considering AHA products, this is one of the best! Yes, it is a bit watery, has strong scent, it stings and face looks red for a short time, but the results are so worth it! Smooth refreshed skin that glows, just wow! Andalou pumpkin mask (that i like very much, btw) is a little baby comparing with Abra. Great!
