Skin Care Review: Patricia Wexler MD Exfoliating Glyco Peel System

by S. MIller, WI USA

Adverse Effects

This product was supposed to provide a gentle way to exfoliate the face.

Did not do what it claimed and irritated my skin.

This is an 10 % glycolic acid peel. The instructions provided by Dr. Wexler are to use this exfoliant daily. DO NOT DO THIS!!! I did this for 5 days and my skin felt dry and raw. I waited about a week before I tried it again. I only used it every 3 to 4 days and experienced the same effects. It left red patches on both of my cheeks and my chin and forehead felt dry. I have not used the exfoliant since and my skin is not back to normal yet. (I also tried the Skin Brightening Daily Moisturizer SPF 30-while using the peel and after I discontinued the peel- it caused irritation.) By the way, I have combo skin with an oily T zone. I have tried other alpha hydroxy products without adverse side effects.

I would not recommend this product to anyone.
