Prickly Pear AHA + HA Peel
1-2x / week
Glowing skin is right around the corner with this luscious, mid-strength AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) 10% peel. Packed with powerful fruit enzymes, it plumps, tightens and brightens, while lightly resurfacing the top layer of your epidermis to reveal a more radiant complexion and to allow your favorite serums and moisturizers to soak right in. Hyaluronic acid (HA) plumps fine lines and wrinkles by boosting your skin's hydration from within.
- Softens fine lines and wrinkles to reduce signs of aging
- Increases collagen production to promote firmness
- Lightens and brightens skin tone
DIRECTIONS: Apply a nickel-sized dollop in a thin layer to clean skin. Wait 10 minutes, rinse.
TIPS: You may feel a slight prickling sensation, which is normal. If you are new to using AHA peels, do a small patch test first. If you feel discomfort or a burning sensation, rinse well and pat dry. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes both during application and rinse off. Do not leave on for longer than 10 minutes. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician.
For double exfoliation, follow immediately with our Triple Action Cleansing Grains or Brighten Up Cucumber Face Polish.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Use only as directed. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.
Contraindications: This formula should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin.
Prickly Pear Fruit Nectar, a unique super food, is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, helping reverse sun and environmental damage and lightening age spots. Our friends in Arizona lovingly grow and hand-process each fruit, juicing it fresh for us.
AHA Fruit Acid Blend sheds off the outermost layer of skin cells (corneocytes), induces the renewal of a skin cell layer and increases the moisturizing level of skin which improves the flexibility of the upper skin layer.
Hyaluronic Acid serves as a water reservoir for the cells. It can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. As we age, the loss of hyaluronic acid results in sagging, thin, wrinkly skin. Feeding new hyaluronic acid to skin helps hydrate the skin’s intercellular reservoir, raising the moisture level, plumping the skin and smoothing fine lines.

I love this peel! Not only is the color truly vibrant, it smells divine and smoothly glides over the skin. I washed with my favorite Rose & Cardamom Facial Cleanser and followed with a light layer of this peel. Heaven in a jar and my skin is happy! Thanks Angelina for your carefully crafted and lovely beauty products!
This is my second jar; I LOVE this product!!! My skin is so soft, smoothed, pores minimized and the smell sends me every time; I want to drink it. There had been a dark-ish growth having a good start at the top corner of left cheekbone last year and I bought my first jar. After the first couple uses, I noticed it was shrinking. Continued regular use and I can hardly tell it is/was there. My sister had a similar growth in the same area a few years back and she let it get pretty large, had to have it surgically removed. I avoided that with early attention and the use of this peel, I swear. It's definitely a regular part of my skincare going forward!
