For sensitive skin, there is no substitute for the assessment by a skin expert. There are many who pretend to be experts in this subject. However, there is absolutely no substitute for a cosmetically oriented board certified dermatologist to examine you, evaluate your history and based on the totality of your circumstance, make informed recommendations regarding what is best for your skin.
Peels are a great way to improve acne. But I don't recommend doing them on your own. If done incorrectly, and if the wrong product is used, scarring and permanent damage can occur. It is just not worth it.
Done in the correct hands, and under proper supervision peels are very effective.
In my office we utilize salicylic acid peels and have had good success.
I wish you the best.

Thank you for your question. Please consult with a licensed provider before doing any at home treatments. I highly discourage DIY Peels, it is easy to cause permanente damage to the skin if done incorrectly. Without seeing your skin for a consultation it is had to say which peel would be best for you. This is something that your aesthetician will be able to discuss with you.
You should consult a board certified dermatologist who can assess your skin and prescribe appropriate medication to help your concerns. There have been many unfortunate results from patients treating themselves.
