*sounds klaxon* 30% GA peel shizzle that you can do at home

thought i ought to do a public service and announce it properly as hardly anyone seems to know you can buy this stuff to use at home - and it works out sooo much cheaper than having it done at a salon even tho it's the exact same stuff.

i've only used it once so far (for 3 mins) but have been properly amazed by the results - as i posted on another thread, my 11s have reduced by 50% [holy grail] and my skin generally looks brighter and more even.

you do it weekly, building up the time over 6 weeks and then have a break.

the magic goo is here:

don't forget to get the neutraliser (apparently just bicarb but maybe has crushed fairies' castles in it too hmm so your choice) and use sun block in the day.

anyone a veteran of the stuff and care to share your results?

p.s. i don't work for bravura and i'm a MN regular recently name-changed to separate my S&B chat with my over-sharing on other threads.

Woo, mine's just come going to pop to the loos and do a patch test. If all is OK I'll do it tonight. (I know it says 48hrs --but I'm wild--)

jealous of you lot and your sizzling.........!
I did 1st SA on sunday and no major difference, but today had some peeling on nose, so maybe a slower reaction than the GA?

Just did patch test.on a scar on the back of my hand. No problems so for, a minute seems really quick though. I got the glyolic night cram too and rubbed in on the back of my hand and it felt lovely.

My neutraliser lid is perfectly behaved. I took some very scary before photos I'm hoping to see a difference after 6 peels.

Just ordered the salycilic peel and the aha moisturiser. I'm blaming you lot if I look like the Singing Detective

Hi all, got mine today ga 30% and about to try. Quick question, after the event I have no natural oils as such except coconut oil, can I use a bit of that or would I be ok with my Liz Earle moisturiser?

Doyouthinktheysaurus Tue 03-Apr-12 20:14:49

Coconut oil would be fine I'm sure, I use it on my skin a lot for oil cleansing, it feels lovely and smells divine.

kaumana Tue 03-Apr-12 20:26:36

I've just finished sizzling and have used pure coconut oil and all seems fine so far!

My SA arrived today! Such quick delivery!

Did a patch test on my wrist and that seemed ok so (common sense ran away) tried it on my forehead too which feels sort of smooth I guess!

I really want to do my full face! Guess I need to wait a few days yet.

Would it be a bad thing to do the SA rinse it off and then go in the shower? Don't know what the hot water would do.

SirCharlieStinkySocks Tue 03-Apr-12 20:33:46

Thank you, just done it now 2 mins very tingly when it went on, scary fizzy neutralizer then dh insisted on using bathroom when I was about to slap second lot of neutralizer on. Skin feels a little dry now so may put coconut oil on bit later. Keep looking at my face rather suspiciously but haven't turned into Cameron Diaz yet

Stangirl Tue 03-Apr-12 20:36:36

OK - joining in. Am just off to do patch test with 30%GA.

Is it ok to use sweet almond oil as the after oil?

Whitershadeofpale Tue 03-Apr-12 20:40:18

I'm going to do mine in about 10mins. Would bio oil be Ok afterwards?

sobenobu Tue 03-Apr-12 20:44:00

I've got no oil either, and a 3 year old that won't go to sleep.

I think I'll wait just in case the application time gets extended for some reason. Would light olive oil be hmm?

Whitershadeofpale Tue 03-Apr-12 21:04:34

Ok first one done. It burnt a lot as I washed it off but because one pipette didn't give enough and I had to decant more out I think it was on for about 2 mins. Tiny bit red now but nothing serious looks quite clear.

cybbo Tue 03-Apr-12 21:22:25

Right...I'm going in

<deep breath>


You were only meant to leave it on for 2/3 mins. Where are you?

cybbo Tue 03-Apr-12 21:37:23


Oof that was stingier than I was expecting...will wait until morningtide to see full results/damage

Helllooooo <echo>

cybbo Tue 03-Apr-12 21:38:58

Oh I timed it to perfection. Was fannying around finding mixing bowls and whatnot

How do you look today lady?

How long did you leave it on for?

I think it's making a difference - I'm using the night cream as well and skin is less patchy fo' sure. The less ingrained lines look better <squints>

cybbo Tue 03-Apr-12 21:42:53

Deux minutes

was stinging like a bastard straight away and I nearly chickened out then I thought WWMBUTM do

Not sure whether to put normal night cream on now, leaflet says non

cybbo Tue 03-Apr-12 21:43:23

How many have you done?

Hairytoes Tue 03-Apr-12 21:46:20

I got mine today off to trybfor 3 mins - I'm hardcoreI am!
