Exuviance Review

Hello!  I just received samples from a company named Exuviance that were sent for the purpose of reviewing and sharing with you.  I received 3 packets of the Performance Peel AP25 and samples of the OptiLight Essential 6 Serum and Evening Restorative Complex.  When I originally signed up for the campaign, I was set to receive full size products to review.  Since there was such a high demand for review, I was sent sample sizes, therefore my results will not be accurate as those who were able to test the products for an extended period of time.

ABOUT THE COMPANY/PRODUCTS



EXUVIANCE® is created by Drs. Van Scott and Yu, widely recognized as leaders in the field of cosmetic dermatology. They discovered the antiaging benefits of Glycolic Acid and created and patented the first Glycolic Peel. Since their ground-breaking discovery, the creators of Exuviance have continued to develop many new patented antiaging ingredients backed by evidence from numerous scientific and clinical studies. Recognized around the world, Exuviance formulas are expertly developed to visibly transform skin by combining their patented innovations with the best, state of the art technologies available in dermatology today.

Exuviance Illumination Duo combines the power of our nighttime transformer, Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex, with the 100% pure active formulation of Exuviance Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster for a potent antiaging cocktail that combats the visible signs of aging.

Give your skin a beauty boost! Mix Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster with Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex before bed. The Vitamin C amps up the effects of the Evening Restorative Complex for a potent antiaging cocktail that acts as an evening transformer for all skin types.

- Evening Restorative Complex is clinically proven to improve overall skin texture, tone, and appearance
- 90% saw smoother skin after 4 weeks of using Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex
- Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster amps up the effects of the Evening Restorative Complex, helping to fade the look of dark spots while improving firmness and smoothing wrinkles

The powerful Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gluconolactone in Evening Restorative Complex decreases lines and wrinkles, evens skin tone and improves roughness and texture. Lactobionic Acid - a potent antioxidant - inhibits wrinkles from forming, plumps and firms the skin, and enhances clarity. This bionic blend of PHAs, along with botanicals and Vitamins A, C and E, delivers full-strength anti-aging benefits without drying or irritation, even on the most sensitive skin types.

The 100% pure active formulation of Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster contains Vitamin C, an essential co-factor in collagen synthesis, known for its power to strengthen skin's matrix, improve firmness and smooth wrinkles. Plus, we've added our patented super antioxidant, Aceta-C™, to enhance the natural antiaging effects of Vitamin C, amplifying its skin-protecting and pigment-evening effects. Together, they help fade the appearance of unwanted dark spots, and strengthen skin's defenses against future discoloration and signs of aging. (What does 100% actives mean? The formula does not contain water or fillers, etc. All the ingredients are benefit ingredients.)

MY EXPERIENCE

I have used the Performance Peel twice since receiving my sample and I have not noticed any dramatic differences yet.  To use the peel, I wiped my face using the pad in Step 1 and after 10 minutes, I applied the product on the pad in Step 2.  I noticed that my face did not burn like a peel and seemed to be much smoother afterwards.  I also noticed a slight glow to my skin.  I followed up with the Evening Restorative Complex after my peel.  This product did not have a strong odor and seemed to add to the smoothing and glowing benefits of the peel.

I used the OptiLight Essential 6 Serum at night after removing my makeup before bed.  Again, I do not believe that I have been able to use the product long enough to give a valid review, but it did leave my skin feeling soft, smooth, and bright.  I did have a slight break out (typical for my skin) after using the products for a few days, so I had to stop the routine to use the products that help my skin when it flares up.  I will update this post when I am able to sample the product a little longer.
