Review: Skin Actives Vitamin A Cream - Twilight Awakening

SkinActives.com Scientific supplies skin care actives to home users and small private label firms who wish to design products customized for their own needs. 

Vitamin A is needed by the retina of the eye in the form of a specific metabolite, the light-absorbing molecule retinal. Vitamin A is also crucial for our skin: when oxidized to retinoic acid, it is a growth factor for epithelial cells, where it binds to two different nuclear receptors to control gene transcription. Our Vitamin A Cream is one of our best selling products and will help improve wrinkles, acne, and pores. 

How to use: Apply at night on clean skin. You can layer on top let’s make collagen serum or anti-age cream, plus dream cream is your skin is on the dry side.

Warning: This product increases the risk of sunburn, so care should be taken to protect treated skin from overexposure to ultraviolet light. Stay in the shade, use sunblock, a large hat and try our Skin Actives SPF 30 sunblock.

Skin Actives products are cruelty free. The cream was creamy, is a good moisturizer. The sample I received was small for me to notice a huge difference in my skin but overall I liked it.  


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Over time our hair becomes thin, and dry it can be from many things using too many hair products or poor diet and using too much heat can really damage your hair. I was at CVS and found myself looking for new hair products or just something different to add some moisture and life to my hair.

Experience a professional peel at home with Exuviance Performance Peel AP25

Wouldn’t it be nice to experience the same professional treatments you get at a dermatologist without breaking the bank, I received the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 and I was hesitant to try it because you hear horror stories of using peels and your skins has a bad reaction to it. The steps are so simple just 2 steps and 10 minutes of your day for a 6 week supply is incredible to me. I love trying new beauty products and been up to speed with what’s new. Being home and having the same results as you would walking into a dermatologist and spending thousands sounds pretty good to me. I was all geedy to try this at home peel. 

According to their site: 

"The creators of the original Glycolic Acid peel introduce a high performance peel that is safe and easy to use at home. The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains a 25% blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Polyhydroxy Acids (PHA) including Glycolic Acid, Mandelic Acid and Gluconolactone. Performance Peel AP25 not only works at skin's surface to exfoliate dead, dull surface layers, it also stimulates the process of cell renewal among all layers, to reveal fresher, healthier cells. With regular use, up to twice a week, this peel has been clinically proven to:"

  • Refine pore size and smooth texture
  • Visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve clarity and brightness
  • Brighten and even skin tone
  • Provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin

The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains 12 peels (a 6 week supply), which can be used up to twice a week on face, backs of hands, neck, chest and body.

Step 1. Apply a Step 1 Activator Pad over the entire face, avoiding eye area, lips and any area of sensitivity. Then discard pad. Carefully monitor the skin’s response to the Peel by observing any redness or discomfort, including stinging, burning, itching, tightness, tingling and peeling.

Step 2. Apply a Step 2 Neutralizer Pad to the face after 10 minutes, or sooner if you experience bothersome redness or discomfort. Apply over entire face (avoiding eyes and lips), and then rinse the face thoroughly with water.

The Exuviance Performance Peel AP25 contains 12 peels (a 6 week supply), which can be used up to twice a week on face, chest and back of hands where exposure to sun and the environment can lead to the first signs of aging. An extra peel is included for testing your skin’s sensitivity. Retail: $72 

Overall: Okay so as a first timer, I noticed a slight tingle my face was red so I would not recommend doing the peel if your going out the same day I do facial treatments at night incase there’s a side effect, the second time I didn’t have any redness just a tingle only when I used step-1 also remember to follow with a moisturizer. I didn’t have drastic results but I noticed a few acne and dark spots started to fade I did the treatment every other week just because my personal preference but is worth it. I’m 32 but my face doesn’t show it!  Have you done any at home facial treatments?
