Just had the blue peel done about 36 hours ago. I read up on the reviews so I took a valium and three Advil before I arrived at the doctor's office. The first layer wasn't too bad, just felt like a mild stinging. The second layer was more intense, felt like little needles. The last layer wasn't as intense as the second. It could be because there was a little bit of solution left and they offered to put it on my neck. The sensation on my neck was different, it was very itchy. That may have taken some of the attention away from my face. I was given a mild face wash right after and I was able to really give my face a good scrub. There is no reason why you have to leave the doc's office looking completely blue! I was also given a few samples of Blue Peel Cleanser to use at home and it also helped to reduce the blue. Its about 36 hours later and I have started to peel on my nose and under my chin. My face it not too uncomfortable, its just very tight. Overall, not a bad experience.

Most of the peeling is done with a few spots here and there. My face is a bit red but it's really starting to look good. Even my husband has noticed a difference. I'm going to give it a few more days to decide if it was worth the money.

Peeling took about 7 days to complete with a very light peel on my neck towards the end of the week. My skin looks brighter and the darkest spots have lightened up. I have switched from a redness reducing foundation to a lighter foundation. It did not do anything for fine lines or firmness, but I wasn't expecting it to. Over all, the process went very smoothly.
