  1. Leanne (verified owner)

    This was highly recommended by a friend and was my first NeoStrata purchase. So far I am loving it.

  2. Nozipho (verified owner)

    I am obsessed with this at -home-peel. It’s really easy to use and leaves my skin looking and feeling great. Skin looks brighter and smoother.

  3. Nazreen (verified owner)

    Absolutely incredible at home peel.

    I use this product once a week at night,
    It has a tingling sensation but it’s not too uncomfortable.
    The next morning I wake up with brighter, smooth glowing skin.

    Worth every penny!

  4. Yuri (verified owner)

    Game changer as I now have a home peeling kit! I can feel it working when I apply it. My skin feels soft and smooth the morning afterwards. I don’t use it every day, but 3 times a week…works like a dream!

  5. shihaam (verified owner)

    I am on my 2nd tub and having been using it for a few months now. I am loving it. I use it once a week and 1 tub lasts a few months. This is due to cutting the pad in half. Half a pad is all that is required and it covers the full face.

  6. Marinda (verified owner)

    My favourite product! Love how my skin feels the next day x

  7. SARAH (verified owner)

    My first NeoStrata purchase and it did not disappoint, its gentle, but effective. My skin feels and looks amazing straight after use 10/10

  8. DerryAnn

    Received a sample of this product and was super impressed. Left my skin feeling smoother, softer and brighter. You can definitely feel it working. My skin did tingle a bit after using it, but this only lasted a few seconds.

  9. Beverley (verified owner)

    I enjoy using this product between seasons – it really helps in removing dead skin absorbs products more easily

  10. Hanani (verified owner)

    Perfect solution for preventing face mask impurities!

  11. Gabi (verified owner)

    A gentle but effective peel. Skin looks and feels fabulous after each use.

  12. Prinasha (verified owner)

    Amazing product. Have been using it for 2 years now. My skin feels amazing and refreshed after each use. What I love most is that it’s such a convenient product especially for travelling.

  13. Elsa (verified owner)

    Great, gentle peel!

  14. Haseena (verified owner)

    I use this every few days because I don’t like over exfoliating – but wow, the way my skin feels and looks the day after makes me feel like using it every day! Soft, smooth, bright. I use the NeoStrata bio hydrating cream afterwards because it’s non irritating, loving the combination.

  15. Margie (verified owner)

    I’ve started using this product again as noted my skin needed extra exfoliation after wearing a mask. Within a couple of days my skin is back to normal with a great texture. A slight tingle but gentle on the skin and really worth the purchase!

  16. Lungile (verified owner)

    It has been a week since using the peel pads. I like the texture of my skin post application of the peel pads.

  17. Zaahida (verified owner)

    I have been using this product for a little over a month. Gentle at home peel no tingles or burning sensation

  18. Bianca

    Best peel I have used and I have tried several different products. Skin feels clean and definitely made pigmentation much lighter. I’ve compared photos from 2019 to 2020, skin looks younger and it made a difference to wrinkles especially on chin/crows feet area. It lasts almost a year, so worth every cent.

  19. Elsa (verified owner)

    Great at-home peel!

  20. shihaam (verified owner)

    Have only used this product a few times, I have seen a slight difference in my skin. Will need more time to see anything major. I do have high hopes for this product as for the few times that I have used it my pigmentation has lightened…..just a little.

  21. Gachlyn (verified owner)

    I’ve been using this peel for over year. I use it twice a week in the evenings. It gives me such a glow in the morning. My skin texture has improved immensely and do has the radiance. I struggled with acne scars and hyperpigmentation, continued use of the “home peel” has really made a difference on my skin.

  22. ilzejvr (verified owner)

    Best “gentle at home peel” you can do for your skin. Is’nt too harsh, makes your skin smooth and minimizes pores, uneven skintone, marks you might have. This is an excellent product. Will never be without it!

  23. LAURA (verified owner)

    This is an amazing product! It keeps breakouts under control & gives you a lovely glow thanks to its exfoliating properties. I can’t go without it.

  24. abigail

    Such a goody to keep for between treatments. I always see the difference the next day after Ive used this product. I also cut the pads in half to get more use out of them.

  25. Manni (verified owner)

    This is my absolute favourite product, a mini face peel at home. I can see and feel the difference in my skins texture and appearance, only been using it for a month. It is not harsh, you can feel a tingle, but it is a nice tingle, you can feel the product working on your skin. Easy to apply and you dont have to wash the product off, just apply your moisturizer on afterwards. I just love it!!

    Amazing product. I only started using it two days ago and can already feel my skin feels soft and smooth.
