First time trying a TCA peel, not my first time trying a chemical peel and also not my first time using the Serum Ceuticals brand. I feelt the TCA peel is just as effective as their other peels and they sure do have a lot of them. I’ve tried most of them if not all. My sweet spot is about ten minutes. That allows the peel to penetrate deep but doesn’t make my feels look incredibly inflamed for the next day or so since I definitely can’t go into work looking like a tomato so by cutting the time it reduces the time it takes my skin to heal. It’s a bit bubbly when you first open it so open it near a sink. You wouldn’t want to get this on your furniture as it’s incredibly strong. I recently got a tan and I tend to get a little blotchy so I use this peel to even things out and refresh my skin. After ten minutes I rinse really really well. I do experience so heat and burning but nothing I can’t handle. I sometimes experience some itching from the tingles but I just resist scratching until I rinse. I use cool water to rinse to close my pores as well as cool my face down. Then I immediately apply a soothing lotion. I save the serums for the following day as I don’t want any of the chemicals to have a bad interaction so it’s just take precautions. My skin feels great after use and it evens out the tone. The blotches from my uneven tan quickly disappeared.
