Before we delve straight into the bridal reviews, it’s important that you have a bit of product background information on Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel.

Why should I use Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel?

Cell turnover slows down as we age, resulting in longer recovery time as well as dullness, fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration. To help combat this, the magical team at Dermalogica has formulated the Rapid Reveal Peel, a high-strength, at-home peel that kick-starts skin renewal to reveal brighter, smoother, healthier skin.

This home peel is clinically proven to enhance radiance and visibly reduce fine lines.

Accelerated skin renewal speeds up the removal of dull cells on the surface of the skin to replicate that of a younger skin. This enhanced cell renewal helps make up for what the skin naturally loses over time.

What are the key ingredients/benefits?

This convenient, at-home peel is the highest-strength retail exfoliant offered by the skin health experts at Dermalogica and The International Dermal Institute:

A unique complex of phytoactive Alpha Hydroxy Acids including Lactic Acid and Rice Bran extract to help reveal new, firmer skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing dulling surface debris without causing dehydration.

Fermented plant enzymes help even skin tone by resurfacing the skin and accelerating cell turnover.

Australian Caviar Lime Extract smoothes and brightens for a more radiant complexion.

How does it work?

It is recommended that you use Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel in one of two ways.

You can either do the kick-start phase, using one a night for three consecutive nights, or you can use one a week for three weeks. You can expect to see visible results!

Massage over your face continuously while it activates for 3-7 minutes. You may experience slight tingling or warming. Thoroughly rinse off with cold water or wipe off with a cold, damp towel. Recommended for evening use.

What did the two brides think of Dermalogica’s Rapid Reveal Peel?

We asked two lovely bride-to-be’s (Ashley and Georgia, or “A” and “G” as per below) a series of three questions. See what they had to say below!

Q 1: How did it feel on your skin when you applied it? Was is stingy? Did it dry your skin?

A: It was super easy to apply to the face (cool smooth gel) and it didn’t take long for the skin to heat up and feel a little tingly! Didn’t really dry my face and make it tight like a mask. It went on pretty nicely!

G: Once applied, it only takes a minute or so before it gets tingly and warm, but not overly so. Not uncomfortable, but definitely noticeable. It comes out as a clear gel, and goes on easily and smoothly – for such a small tube it goes pretty far also! The only thing I didn’t like so much was that it feels a bit sticky while its on your skin, but seeing as its a wash-off product this doesn’t really matter to much.

Q 2: What difference did you notice after the first use? And what difference after using all three?

A: I used mine on Friday night because I had to go out Saturday, and when I woke up in the morning I definitely noticed my face looked brighter, so I went make-up less all day because I was happy with my skin tone! I’m looking forward to using the others!!

G: After washing off the first application, my skin was so smooth and soft! I have very sensitive skin, and was unsure how my skin would respond to a product like this, but I’ve had no issues at all. The redness I had before applying the mask has disappeared, and my skin is left bright and clear.

Q 3: Would you recommend for other brides? How soon before the wedding would you use it?

A: I would definitely recommend for other brides. It’s so simple, easy and quick to use. It’s not as burny as other peels I’ve used, so doesn’t feel as harsh on the skin. I noticed an overnight difference, so its definitely something to use the night before the wedding. My makeup was ON POINT the day after using it cause my skin was so light and bright!

G: I would definitely recommend this to other brides, it gives you the glowing look you want on your special day. I would recommend they use the last tube possibly the day before the wedding – to allow for settled skin to apply any make up and/or sunscreen on. Also, the tingly warm sensation makes this mask feel alot more special on your face – and you want something a little extra special for your big day

How much does it cost?
