This is part 2 of the review on 40% Glycolic Acid Peel (MUAC). For details on price, application instructions and photos, check out Part 1 of the review.
To recap, this is my first attempt with a 40% Glycolic acid, and I had it on for 2.5 minutes. Let’s see if any flaking or peeling took place?
Day 2 Account
The slight itch that I’d experienced on Day 1 (post-3hr) stopped, and I felt and looked as normal as I would on any other days.
When I touched my face, I could feel pore-size scabs which might be the dried-up sebum or clogs. I kept my fingers crossed that this meant my recent breakout was under control.
My face also appeared slightly shinier than usual, albeit less so than my medium depth peel.
Placing the BEFORE and AFTER photos side by side allows me to better observe the difference brought about by MUAC’s 40% Glycolic Acid peel.
I notice a significant improvement in the skin tone and the blemishes don’t look as angry as before. What do you think?
Day 3 Account
The pore-size scabs now felt like hardened white-heads that could be easily scraped off. I couldn’t stop touching (and scraping) my face though I knew I really shouldn’t.
My pimples cleared up a lot and I thought I looked so much better than before. The pimples were under control, and the redness had subsided.
Day 4 Account
In fact, my face felt pretty moisturized (and oily) when I was expecting it to be dry and flaky.
The Results (40% Glycolic Acid – MUAC)
Alright. I’m convinced that I won’t peel or flake from 2.5 minutes of 40% Glycolic acid application.
Not with Glycolic Acid! My palm didn’t peel at all. My face didn’t flake. Everything looks extremely normal, with the exception that my skin feels firmer and my blemishes have improved a great deal.
“By the way, no peel doesn’t mean no good. Since this is a superficial peel, the ‘peel’ could be microscopic by nature.”
Given how affordable this acid is and the results it bring, this is definitely my Holy Grail At-Home Peel. I’m looking forward to trying it again, this time for a longer duration. I wonder if I’ll peel with the maximum duration of 12 minutes. When i find out, I’ll let you know for sure. Rating: 5/5.

IMPORTANT TIPS / DISCOVERY
[This para was inserted after post was completed and scheduled for publishing]
Oh gosh. I just discovered something really important by chance and I need to share this with all of you. Please bear with me if you are already aware of what I’m going to share about.
After I’ve completed this post about 5 hours ago, I shut down my PC. But I couldn’t stop touching my face. Although the blemishes were under control, I could still feel the dried-up sebum/clogs in my pores, sticking out like annoying whiteheads.They were everywhere, especially on my nose, corner of my mouth and my chin.
Would these dried-up sebum develop into nasty new pimples? Should I use a tweezer to pluck them all out? How long would that take? I do have a lot of pores, alright?
Then, something came to mind. I took out my Cure Natural Aqua Gel. ‘Do I really want to exfoliate my face so soon after an acid treatment?, I thought and pondered for a while for fear of over-treating my face.
I’m so glad that I’d decided to proceed. After applying CURE Natural Aqua Gel on my cleansed face and massaging it through (on Day 6), the white residue generated from the gel were at least twice the normal amount generated. I was a little puzzled.
After washing off the residue and drying my face, I couldn’t believe what I saw. No more whiteheads. I couldn’t feel anything sticking out of my pores. They were gone. If not totally gone, I would confidently say that 90% were gone
I’m so excited typing this and I can’t stop touching my face. The skin surface feels so smooth now, vastly different from just 5 hours ago. That kept me thinking, “What would happen if I didn’t discover this by chance?”. Do I have to live with dried-up sebum and clogged pores after every acid treatment?
Glycolic Acid + Cure Natural Aqua Gel will be my new-found tool to deal with aging, blemishes and enlarged pores!
