When I was asked to review TCA Peel Multi-Acid Face Stacked Skin Care ($ 150/1 ounce or $ 250/2 ounces), and was very excited to do so. As a 52-year-old, my skin has, over the past five years or so, suddenly lost much ground in the fight against age. All sun damage (and it was a lot) that held him in my younger years has finally decided to make a fairly energetic and dramatic appearance on the face, especially in the form of serious and broken capillaries hyperpigmentation (something that I have a strong genetic predisposition.) I have considered the possibility of taking some drastic measures to combat these problems measures, and although I have not ruled out, the thought of radical treatments such as deep peels, laser or pulsating lights frightens me, not to mention the fact that while my aging skin has begun furiously, it has also become increasingly sensitive. So when the offer came to test TCA Peel Multi-Acid Face Stacked skin care, it seemed the perfect solution to my problems of skin care.
stacked skin care. Oh yeah. If you run the name through an individual many, I know what you think first. But surely not, right? Of course, no. A quick visit to the view reveals that as expected, this line of skin care consists of components that are intended to be “stacked” together to achieve better results, more dramatic. But you can still tell your husband you’re asking a lot of things stacked and probably will think it’s a great idea.
Because TCA multiácida face Skin Care Stacked was the product I was asked to try, it was the only thing I added to my routine skin care. I did not change anything else about my routine skin care. In a couple of nights that I used the shell I’m still a little moisturizer I’ve been using for a few years (Tata Harper reparative moisturizer), but on the other nights I applied the skin and left it at that. As tempting as it was to use a special serum skin on top of the shell, which did not change any other part of my skin care except for the addition of the face TCA Multi-acid skin care. Therefore, I prefer to feel that he was testing the product out of its natural environment. He was trying to unstack.
A quick look at their website revealed that while TCA Multi-Acid Face Peel stacked Skin Care claims to be “safe for sensitive skin” (even for people with psoriasis, eczema or rosacea), an claim is fully supported by the criticism on its website. A shell that is effective but gentle and complete in its ingredients and foolproof enough to use safely at home? Sign me up! This was a shell that was not afraid to try!
And I have to say I was not disappointed. I found my skin was peeling able to tolerate this very well – no adverse reactions at all. Although their website does not make clear how often this peel is to be used, I gathered from employees in place that is usually applied 1 or 2 times a week as part of a program of night skin care. I decided to use twice a week and also did it for four weeks, for a total of 8 shells. In all that time, I’ve never experienced any serious or persistent redness, peeling, burning, peeling, or blistering (yes, my skin has literally blistered other products). Therefore, unless there is some other particular allergy may have one or more of the ingredients of this exfoliation, I feel very confident agree with his assertion that is safe and gentle.
A very good thing to face TCA Multi-Stacked acid skin care is the way it is applied. It comes with a small antenna and a delicate brush fan. To apply, which dispense a given shell dropper bottle on the plate number. Then using the fan brush, brush lightly over his face. I loved this application method – the fan brush makes it easy to apply a light, thin layer of the shell, and the brush feels delicate and soothing to the skin. All-in-all just a cool, Zen-like addition to a nightly ritual.
The serum itself has a pleasant smell, like coffee and caramel. It has a gelatinous consistency and feels light and looks like a gel on the skin. After the first application, I feel a sense of very mild stinging followed by a slight feeling of tension, but they only last a few seconds. Once applied, it is slightly sticky to the touch, and at night when not follow the shell with any other product, remained a bit tacky in some areas, while other areas are dried at a slight sheen – as expected any gel behave. Because the shell is self-neutralizing, you need not be washed, and can be superimposed (stacked) with other products. Having said all this, it is easy to apply and a pleasure to use.
In theory, the dropper and the plate to take the guesswork on the amount of shell to use. For me, it was a bit more problematic. First, the website indicates that use ¼ – ½ of a dropper solution for each shell. Because I’m always trying to maximize any product you use, especially those that are as expensive as it is, I tried to get away with a quarter of an eyedropper. No way. It was perhaps enough for my forehead and nose. So, I ended up using a generous ½ dropper, even then it was hardly enough. Finally, I realized: different sizes of bottles of different sizes, with a dropper. I had sent a sample – a bottle that was about ½ full of serum. He had assumed it was a bottle of regular size with a dropper regular size, but a quick comparison of the sample bottle to other bottles of 1 oz my closet revealed that the serum bottle he had received was a little smaller, so the dropper I had been using to measure the product was also smaller. All this is to explain that although I thought I had been following the instructions for proper application, which may well have been using the product too sparingly, which, in turn, may have affected my results. My guess is that the reason the instructions indicate how to use ¼ -½ a dropper is because the shell is sold either in a 1 oz 2 oz or so for a bottle 1 oz, ½ dropper wants work, but for the larger bottle 2 oz, ¼ dropper might be enough. This is something that really should be more clearly explained in the instructions, especially for the type of followers as direction.
The first night I used TCA Peel Multi-Acid face skin care, I did follow up with a moisturizer day light. When I woke up the next morning my skin had a nice glow, rose. He was happy and hopeful about the effectiveness of the product. However, other applications did not result in the AM rosy glow. After a couple of applications, I believe that the pores in the T zone of the face appear slightly smaller and stronger, but other than that, I have not seen real improvements in my skin – more disappointing that no changes in hyperpigmentation in the face. In general, I do not feel that this peel has made a great improvement in my skin. However, I am very reluctant to discount this product after only one month trial. Given the fact that I’m not sure I applied the right amount of skin each time, and I’ve used the product ‘not stacked,’ I feel that my results could be a little off. In addition, because of this is a soft shell, you may need to be used for a significant amount of time in order to see measurable results.
TCA Peel Multi-Acid Face skin care consists of several different exfoliating acids. These include glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, phytic acid, and TCA ( trichloroacetic acid ) Together, these acids combat a series of problems of aging; Lightening and preventing hyperpigmentation, smoothing lines and wrinkles, anti-acne, boost collagen and promote cell renewal. It also includes retinol to minimize fine lines and boost collagen and ascorbic acid for fighting free radicals. I have no qualms in any of the active components, and generally feel it is an integrated group that addresses a lot of skin problems. What the website stacked skin care does not tell you is that the concentrations of any of the ingredients included. Because of this peel is soft and non-irritating, I naturally assume that the formulation is quite weak so it can be safe to use at home on a regular basis.
Would you buy this? The answer: I could well do so. It is an expensive product, and that is an important consideration. You might wonder why I would be interested in shelling out a lot of money for a product that has not produced measurable results for me. I suppose, too. However, I tend to believe that a product is to be given a test of longer run. Micro-rolling before the application is likely to increase its effects, and I would try that. And I would be interested in trying this exfoliation with a monitor serum amplifier efficiency. I like the fact that it can be once or twice a week boost to an already established routine. I like the fact that it is so easy to use and smooth. I like that it can be used in combination with other products – serums that I have. And, when compared with the prospect of some other more radical treatment, rather give TCA Peel Multi-Acid face skin care a little more time to show what you can do. Sometimes the turtle does win the race.
