Avon Clinical Advanced Retexturing Peel Review

Younger, Brighter Looking Skin Without the Steep Spa Cost?

Avon’s been a leader in the skincare industry for decades and their Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel is purported to continue that legacy by resurfacing your skin so that your anti-aging creams can penetrate better and work more effectively.

The problem with many of these peels is that they either dry your skin out badly or don’t work at all, but this product has won several different beauty awards for its effective yet gentle results.

Let’s take a closer look at this Avon’s retexturing peel to see if it can really alleviate dull looking skin and make way for a brighter, younger-looking complexion.

What Do They Claim?

According to Avon, this product is the Superman of retexturing peels. They claim that the results of this product are better than those that you’ll see from a 35% professional glycolic peel without the need to go to an expensive spa.

The advanced exfoliator peels away “dullness and visible age damage” so that your healthy new skin cells are visible, and the botanicals in it work to calm and nourish your skin.

What’s In It?

The first two ingredients are water and glycolic acid, so that’s a plus. Next is alcohol and not too much further down the list is ammonium hydroxide, so I’m a bit concerned about the drying effects that this may have. My skin tends to be really dry around my mouth and products with alcohol listed near the top often cause flaking and irritation.

Reading on down the list, there are a couple of different algae extracts which are great for regular to dry skin but may induce acne breakouts if you’re sensitive to them.

There’s also honey, which truly is a superhero in the skin and health field because of its antibacterial, antimicrobial and humectant properties. The shiitake mushroom extract in this product shares some of these properties but is lesser known to most people.

Other botanicals include pineapple and papaya extracts which also contribute to exfoliation, and the green tea, cucumber, aloe and chamomile extracts will soothe your skin and fight free radicals that cause dull-looking skin to begin with.

For those of you who are concerned about EDTA or propylene glycol in your cosmetics, this product contains them both.

Those two aside, there are some really good ingredients in Avon’s Clinical Advanced Retexturing Peel so let’s take a look at what real users have to say about it.

What Are Users Saying?

User reviews are a bit mixed with the Clinical Advanced Retexturing Peel depending upon where you look. Avon’s sight has overwhelmingly good reviews, but it’s their site. Allure magazine has given the product top marks a couple of times, so there has to be at least SOME value.

The only thing that I could really find that would be considered a negative thing is that some people who were prone to acne reported that this product broke them out, or increased their breakouts. Everyone else reported that age spots were diminished, skin tone was brighter and texture was improved, and some folks even say that it reduced their breakouts.

Final Word

My suggestion is to use this product with care in the beginning until you see how your skin is going to react. Because some people with sensitive or acne-prone skin reported redness, irritation, or breakouts, it’s better if that happens at night when you’ve got a few hours before you have to go anywhere.

That being said, the reviews were overwhelmingly positive and if your skin is dull and your products just aren’t absorbing the way that you thing that they should, then you should try this peel. It does have some really good botanicals in it to help soothe your skin and offset the drying effect of the glycolic acid so that puts it ahead of other peels in my book.
