NEVER use this peel until you have *successfully* used our 15% Salicylic Acid Peel, once a week, for a period of six (6) weeks.

Salicylic acid is oil soluble, thus making this acid perfect for oily/acne skin that needs deep pore cleansing and loosening of blackheads. 


  • Cleans pores
  • Removes oily residue from skin
  • Helps to clear acne
  • Helps to loosen blackheads
Other important cautions:
--Because salicylic acid is in the aspirin-family, it's important for clients who are allergic to aspirin products to avoid using this product.

--If you are pregnant or lactating, consult with your OB/GYN before using chemically based products.

--Always patch-test the skin before using acid-based products.  If you experience irritation, rinse immediately with cool water.

--Wait 24-48 hours to see if irritation develops. 

--Do not apply to red, irritated skin.

--Do not use manual exfoliants, nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of use.

--Do not use drying acne products, other acids, nor retinoids for 48 hours before using this, and do not resume for 48 hours after the peel.

--Chemical peels cause the skin to be photo-sensitive, so be sure to use sun protection after your peel.

Per the FDA, always use sunscreen protection after using chemically-based skin care.

I use this peel in 1-2 layers on the bottom of my feet. It has taken away my stubborn callous!

Love/hate relationship... but mostly love
I don't know what it is. Sometimes I use this peel and it leaves my skin looking like it's been injected with baby stem cells. Sometimes I use this peel and I look like the victim of a bomb blast who's making steady recovery. I can't figure out what I do that gives me a perfect result half the time and burns the other half. This peel works. It definitely works. I think you just have to experiment a bit and use a timer to figure out how long your skin can withstand it before you should rinse it off. As I said, if I time it right (what right is, I still don't know!) I get excellent results. If I don't then I'm left with very unsightly little scabs. It's hit or miss. In fact, it's like going to get a facial. Some procedures will leave you looking like a supermodel, others will force you to stay indoors for hours until your face returns to human. I'd say. Strong, effective product, but use carefully.

25% Salicylic acid peel
I've been using this once a week to control hormonal acne. I had heard about MUAC from the Makeupalley boards when I was looking for something to control my acne and didn't want to have to gone on antibiotics. I'm 45 now and have been on antibiotics for acne on and off since I was 23. I had an initial purge but after the second use it stopped. I just ordered the mandelic/salicylic peel to also address hyperpigmentation issues. I've placed several orders since discovering MUAC two months ago. Samples of several items as well as a few full sizes. I will never go back to department store skin care brands.

It does what it promess
I like this product, it help me to control my acne, the only thing I don't like is that leaves a dark spot in the area that is applied. ****Some may notice some post peeling hyper pigmentation... it can be quite normal with darker skin tones or olive skin tones. This is easily resolved with our Micro Polish. MUAC Customer Service****

doesn't peel
this peel did not peel for me ****MUAC Comment: Thank you for your feedback! Not all peels will produce visible peeling, however, rest assured your pores are being deeply cleansed of oil and debris and a brighter, more refined tone and texture will result. Thanks again for posting!****

25% Salicylic Acid Peel
I purchase the sample size of this peel. This will be a definite repurchase in the full size. It leaves my face smooth and clear. No itching or burning while on the skin, but it does cause slight peeling. Which I love!

I am a loyal customer of MUAC and absolutely love this product! I usually do TCA peels, but use this to help with adult acne. Clears my face up immediately and helps fade scars.

I love this product and no im not being paid to say that. This peel has done wonders for my acne scars and dealing with melasma. I found that doing an at home micro dermabrasion 3-4 days before using this product. Really helps I get a lot more frosting and by 1-2 days I can see my skin peel. Being a woman of color its really hard to find products that really work. My skin is so much softer and my scars are getting lighter. Thanks MUAC.

Happy Customer!
2 years ago, I developed large acne type hard bumps on my scalp.They did not itch and I had never had any issues with my scalp. I tried 3 different medication creams prescribed by the dermatologist, organic shampoos and conditioners, Apple Cider Vinegar, and several other natural solutions. I have always been very happy with MUAC products and have purchased them for years! It finally occurred to me I should try this product. 95% of the bumps dried up after the 1st application! I am retreating as a safety measure to hopefully completely clear it for good. Thank you MUAC! I will continue to spread the word among my friends!

I've used this peel before but at a less potent level. And both have me the desired results. This one I really couldn't leave on for the suggested 2minutes. It began to froth immediately upon application. my skin began to darken and peel after 3 days but it wasn't bad. That only lasted about 2 days. My dark spots are lighter as a result. I will use this peel again in 2 weeks. I'm alternating between this and the Mandelic acid peel which I also love

Am I missing something?
I gave it two stars because the price is good and I've always received my products in a timely manner, but this did not help my skin at all. I tried the 8% serum and 15% peel and they did nothing for my cystic acne and blackheads so I decided to try the 25% hoping that something stronger would do the trick. It didn't. Yes my skin has peeled a little here and there but that's about it. This peels has also darkened the skin around my mouth/skin and now I'm trying to work on that issue as well. I've tried scrubs and oils and still nothing. Basically this peel didn't solve a single issue for me and actually caused new issues. I feel horrible leaving a bad review but I'm just really disappointed.

dries pimples fast
I bought the 25% peel not as an all over but more for spot treatment of pimples that pop up. I have used it a couple of times directly on the pimple twice a day. I did not dilute the 25% solution since it was a very small place using a qtip applicator. It burned just a bit but since it was such a small place it didn't really bother me. But boy does this stuff dry it up. Usually the Clearasil takes several days to even notice it doing anything and is so drying that you end up peeling the skin off and leaving an awful red scar behind. This dries it up a lot without peeling my skin away. I also was surprised that it took the redness of the pimple away drastically . Making it a bit easier to cover with makeup. Nothing will remove a pimple overnight, but this stuff seems much faster than anything else I've ever tried. And I'm 45 and have battle acne my whole life . 3 rounds of Accutane. So I know about acne. Have never tried this on large areas of my face so couldn't tell you but I'm thinking it could be painful given that I've burned even using a small amount and I've done mandelic and tca now for about a year.

I used to spend $50 at the dermatologist office every time I wanted a peel for my acne and scars. Now, I can do it at home for so much cheaper. I am very impressed so far, I just did my first peel last night.

Excellent Product
Mirco Polish is an excellent product; I plan to purchase more. I was surprised how well it worked and great my skin felt after. I totally recommend buying this product. I have acne acne with psoriasis, black heads and acne Keratotic. Let me tell you I’ve tried several products this is by far my favorite. I used this a couple days in a row to a certain area at least one night I left the dab overnight, it help dry out the problem area. Great product, i plan to purchase more.

Best for me
I love it. I have tried many different peeling acids and other products, and salicylic is the best for me. Because it is strong (my skin is red next day) but still does not stop me from doing my life. I cover peeling with some makeup and it works. My skin is smoother and more beautiful.

Not for me
this product is very strong and I know it works but it is not what I needed for my skin. Dried me out and burned me (last part being my own fault). If you want a strong peel look no further but please read instructions carefully!

Great but Strong
This peel really helps to keep my acne under control. I've tried the 8% bha serum and 15% peel, while they work good, this works better. Since this is stronger it does sting more but not too bad. I do this peel either 2x or 1x a month. I will continue to purchase and use this peel.
