KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Petal Peel will reveal brighter, petal soft skin. A powerful natural alternative to chemical peels, this advanced vitamin C brightening system supports natural cell renewal, helps smooth the appearance of fine lines and discolorations, and gives skin an instant boost of radiance. Step one, an aloe-based Activating Peel Gel, cleanses the skin while it opens pores to allow the active ingredients in step two to penetrate deeper. A 10 percent concentration of natural fruit, glycolic, and sugar-derived lactic AHAs peel away dead outer skin cells and remove impurities, dirt, and excess sebum without irritation. An equal concentration of healing aloe simultaneously soothes and softens skin. Step two, an intensive Brightening & Revealing Peel Mask, contains an additional dose of 10 percent AHAs and natural pomegranate enzymes for additional peeling, exfoliating, and resurfacing action ($64; Sephora.com).
