Daily Gentle Peel for Acne



While not a peel in the traditional sense, [re]fresh Salicylic Acid 2% Peel (click here to purchase) works to speed new skin turnover and collagen production for a brighter, more luminous, and clearer complexion.  Naturally derived from willow bark, this potent salicylic acid peel is a powerful weapon against acne and signs of aging.  It shrinks pores, decreases excess oil production, improves skin’s texture and tone, decreases fine lines, and repairs photo-damaged skin. 

How does it work?  It’s easy as can be.  Just put some of the [re]fresh Salicylic Acid 2% Peel on a cotton ball and buff gently into the skin on your face and neck.  Let dry for a few minutes.  Then neutralize with cool water and moisturize.  I found that it was best to do this at night before bed and after I washed my face. 

In my opinion, I have a problem with oily skin, so I was able to buff it into my face and then leave it on without neutralizing it.  I don’t have a problem with acne, but has some issues with it on my chin and neck.  I didn’t having any issues with excessive dryness or any other issues.  Be warned:  This is recommended for use on oily or problematic skin.

This peel is a great product that deals with more than just anti-aging.  It prevents acne from forming, kills acne bacteria, clears blackheads and whiteheads, and lessens appearance of acne scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. It claims to be effective against acne, acne scars, inflammation, rosacea, melasma, actinic keratosis, fine lines, wrinkles, crows feet, and sun spots, but I haven’t used it long enough to prove whether or not it’s true.

Some of the highlights of using [re]fresh Salicylic Acid 2% Peel are:  

  • Reduces pore size
  • Treats problematic skin
  • Paraben free
  • Phthalate free
  • No artificial colors, fragrance, or preservatives.
  • Vegan Friendly – All botanically derived ingredients, never tested on animals
  • Made in the USA

I recommend this product for people with problem skin.  This will be a regular product in my skincare routine.


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
