Maintain a Radiant, Youthful Complexion with Brazilian Peel {Review & Giveaway}

AHA logo
In a conversation recently, a friend told me that she loved winter.

I'm not going to lie, I looked at her like she was crazy while you've GOT to be kidding ran through my head. What is there to love? It's freezing, it takes an extra 10 minutes to hunt down and pack up my kids' boots, snowpants, hats, mittens and more, and, no matter what I do, my hair, lips and skin feel dry.

Another layer of lip balm to keep my chapped lips at bay and another application of lotion to keep the cracks away from my knuckles, but my face? It just seems like it is peeling, dry and dull all over. Lovely.

Fortunately, there are products designed to make it easy to jump start our skin and maintain a radiant, youthful complexion all year long. Sounds pretty nice, right? That's why I was excited to be introduced to the patented, self-neutralizing Brazilian Peel and the way that it firms and tones skin, and reduces fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes, and uneven skin tone.

Brazilian Peel product

From Advanced Home Actives, Brazilian Peel is the first professional-strength peel designed to deliver deeper, long-lasting results at home. Formulated with 30% glycolic acid, the nourishing antioxidant açaì, and the innovative Q-Mag Neutralizer, this product claims to help tighten skin and remove skin damage for women seeking affordable home skin care.

Considering I'm always on the lookout for quick and easy ways to bring new life to my skin, I was ready to give Brazilian Peel a chance to see the improvements it could provide for me.

AHA Brazilian Peel

Pulling the contents out of the box, I was glad to see that the entire process was uncomplicated and easy to follow.

As much as I would like to spend hours at a time on an at-home spa experience, I definitely appreciate being able to pull out a product that simply requires a few minutes and can be utilized easily during a mom's busy schedule.

Brazilian Peel review

It only took a minute to glance over the instructions before I was able to put the first application of the Brazilian Peel to use.

Brazilian Peel application

As each application is held in a double-chamber syringe container, once you've washed and dried your face and neck, you simply dispense the Brazilian Peel gel and white Q-Mag Mineral Neutralizer right into the palm of your hand.

Brazilian Peel gel

After mixing the contents with two fingers until they are thoroughly combined, apply an even layer to your entire face, neck and décolleté and leave for 10 minutes.

While I felt an initial warm, light tingling sensation (the instructions mention to rinse immediately if you experience discomfort), I didn't have any problem leaving the Brazilian Peel on my skin for the allotted time before thoroughly washing it off.

I have to admit that I was slightly skeptical that I would remove the towel from my face and find my skin glowing like the Brazilian Peel models...

glowing skin

...but was pleasantly surprised to see that it had indeed revealed fresher, younger-looking skin without even a hint of redness or irritation. My face in general felt clearer and I was shocked when my husband (who is levels beyond me when it comes to being skeptical of products meeting their claims) even mentioned that he indeed thought my skin was a bit brighter.

When I went to apply makeup later in the day, I definitely noticed that the application was easier and that my skin did feel smoother than it has in a while. Even though I hadn't invested a great deal of time (and money) visiting a spa, I was really pleased that the results appeared as if I had!

pampered with friends

As chemical peel treatments are one of the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists in the U.S., being able to visibly and instantly brighten, smooth, firm, and tone skin right at home is a fantastic alternative.

I don't know about you, but the ease and convenience of being able to remove or improve the appearance of things like sun damage, tiny scarring, fine lines, age spots, skin discolorations and more right from the comfort of my own home is a huge plus. Why wouldn't I want to reveal the fresh, soft skin that is hiding below the dry, dull surface by simply using Brazilian Peel once a week?

Albeit much more inexpensive than going to a spa or doctor's office, Brazilian Peel does retail for $78 for four applications, so it isn't cheap. But if you're someone that is looking for a way to have a radiant complexion without any discomfort or hassle, this just might be the thing for you!

Find out more, read other reviews, or make a purchase of Brazilian Peel on the Advanced Home Actives website, as well as from Sephora or on Amazon.

And, thanks to the generosity of AHA, one person will soon be able to see smoothing, firming and brightening of their skin as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Brazilian Peel
by Advanced Home Actives (ARV $78)!
