Acid Only
1 oz Argan Oil


pH 2.4

Also 8 oz pH Prep Solution Refill

99+% purity from the world's most famous supplier of glycolic acid.

Kits include your purchase:

  • 1 - bottle of glycolic acid, 40% pH 2.4
  • 1 - bottle of pH prep solution
  • Instructions listed above, under corresponding tab.

Our 40% pH 2.4 peel offers the same great benefits as our other glycolic acid products:


  • Helps to control acne and blackheads.
  • Deep cleans pores.
  • Provides a smoother skin surface making imperfections less noticeable.
  • Reduces fine lines, stimulates natural collagen production and creates a beautiful, youthful glow to the skin.
  • Evens-out skin tones and hyperpigmentation problems.
  • Helps to revive and reverse the ravages of sun-damaged skin.

Acne Clients:

You are beginning your treatments with pores that are congested/clogged with embedded dirt, dead skin cells and sebum. As you begin your treatments the sebum just under the surface will likely emerge as blemishes. This is normal. Breakouts may seem more pronounced since the acid is cleaning the pores more quickly than with regular cleansing products. Typically within the first 3 weeks, the skin begins to show improved clarity with very few breakouts. Please try to be patient during this time. Deep cleansing and exfoliation is a "process" which takes some time to work.

Extremely oily skin types, consider using our beta serum as your first-step before doing your peel to "cut through" the oil. While it is not a necessity, it will help extremely oily skin clients to realize better results with any of our acid peels. And, you can use it between peels to help control oil.
Beta Hydroxy Serum
For scar reduction, use your glycolic peel with one of our Beta Hydroxy Serums
Acne Scar Treatments
General Cautions:
  • Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using a peel.
  • Stop Retin A, benzoyl peroxides, acne products and any other drying agents 24 hours before and after using an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy peel.
  • If you are allergic to aspirin products, never use a salicylic acid nor beta hydroxy peel.
  • Never apply a peel without doing a patch-test first and waiting 48 hours for results.
  • Never apply a chemical peel to inflamed skin.
  • Always read product directions in their entirety and don't take shortcuts.
  • Use our BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream for skin that has been chemically over processed.  It contains advanced healing agents that will quickly get your skin back to normal.
  • When in doubt about a caution, please write or call us for more information.

    FDA December 2, 2002 Posting - Sun Sensitivity
    Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal. It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products. The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel.

    This peel is amazing. I have been using it for several weeks and my skin is brighter, more even toned, smoother, and my acne scars have faded. My pores are almost nonexistent. Be sure to carefully read the instructions and slowly build your time up. Love love love!

    Love it
    A friend had recommended this product and I couldn't love it more!!! The results (I do it every 4-6 days started at 1min and now leave it on up to 3 min) love that I don't have to pay so much to have a peel done at a salon and no redness or peeling after!! I'm so excited about this and will definitely be recommending it to friends!!

    Secret Weapon!
    This product is hands down a secret weapon! It does exactly what its meant to do. I had sun damaged skin from playing sports and always being out doors and so I wanted something that would improve my skin texture and just make it look nice and smooth again! THIS PRODUCT MADE MY SKIN YOUTHFUL AGAIN. I get compliments all of the time on my skin on how flawless it looks. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone who wants to maintain their skin. I also like how tout it makes my skin look. Great product, will be buying again soon.

    AMAZING!!! Wonders
    so my skin type is oily/dry and i am currently breaking out on my jaw and cheekbone area. its frustrates me it is my first time using peels and i wanted to start with a more agressive peel to really help on bringing my skin to my desire liking. so far i have had 3/4 peels in once/week and its been a little over a month already i haven't used it for 2 weeks or so. at first since i didn't see immediate results i was a bit disappointed but after the 2nd/3rd peel i noticed slight changes in texture of my skin, with the use of my green tea/pomegranate wash&toner its improved but i must say i do need something more aggressive so now i purchased the 18% tca and see how that goes. i recommend this product slowly but surely it has delivered.

    I think I expected too much from this item. Users on Skincareaddiction from Reddit had great things to say about glycolic peels in general, and being that I have been applying AHAs for a while, I went ahead and ordered the 40%. It did make some difference on the post-inflammation hyper-pigmentation on my thighs from shaving, but not as significant as drastic as I would have thought. I am already half-way through the bottle and apply it every Sunday. I may update this review after my cycle is completely done, but I think I'm going to give lactic acid a try next time. Overall, it's a decent product - not WOW great but not terrible either.

    Nice glow, lightens dark spots
    Helped lighten some dark spots I had from acne that just wouldnt go away with fade cream alone. And it gave my skin a nice glow. Its a mild peel so you can go to work/school after using it. I use it once every other week and given results so far hope in about in a month or two the spots will be barely there. Only issue is and guess really can't avoid it is itches like crazy when you use it.

    Good Maintenance Peel
    I just purchased this peel and have used it twice. No adverse reactions at all, and was able to leave it on for about 2 minutes each time. I've alternated this with the Lactic Acid peel, as well as the 25% Mandelic Acid peel. Between these three, the exfoliation has been light but definitely effective as I work my way up to stronger peels. When I was just using the Lactic Acid and Mandelic peels, I definitely felt they made my face brighter and the texture a bit better, but I was still breaking out. Adding the Glycolic Peel to the routine seems to be clearing up the breakouts I was having, which is AMAZING cause I'm in my 30s and pretty much thought I'd be dealing with these forever. I'll move up to a 50% peel once I use up this bottle, but definitely happy so far.

    Really helps
    I use this twice a month on my face and once a week on my psoriasis on my head. It helps keep the itch and flake down. It the only thing that has ever worked.

    40% Glycolic Acid Peel
    I have done this peel 5 times, 1 x a week. I have dealt with acne since I was a teenager. I finally got my skin under control the last 5 years until I had my 3rd child. The last year I have been struggling with acne again and was desperate for something to help. I tried everything I had in the past that worked but it didn't work this time. My mom told me about this product so I decided to order it. The first 3 times I used this it broke me out in big cystic acne. I was discouraged but read that your skin needs time to purge so I decided to keep going. The last two times I used this I broke out with a couple pimples but no cystic acne. This is a great exfoliator, after using it my skin feels VERY smooth and tight. I had a little redness the first time I used it but that was it. It definitely makes my pores look smaller. I am still waiting on it to help with my acne more so we will see the next 6 weeks or so. Overall, if you are looking for a product to improve your skin, this will do it!

    Easy to use
    I have post acne hyperpigmentation on my face. I have been suffering from the same since so many years and the only thing that helped me was peels. I ve had glycolic acid peels done earlier, before a few years from cosmetic clinics which helped me get a clearer face.But i found that my recent acne outbreak left behind hyperpigmentation and did some research to find a solution.Thats when i discovered this and was really eager to try.First thing that attracted me was its easy to use, instructions are given along with the product. And it gives the same quality product as the cosmetic clinics but the cost is much lesser here.I ve used it only twice now and havent noticed any dramatic change but the marks have become slightly light. I m sure its going to reduce even more after a few peels. Also looking forward to trying stronger peels if this doesnt work. I will definitely update my review after few more uses .
