Perfect Image is my (very close) second pick for an effective lactic acid peel at $29.95 for 1.0 oz.

This bestselling chemical peel features a similar formulation to QRxLabs with 50% Lactic Acid and a blend of natural skin lightening boosters like Kojic Acid, Bearberry Extract, and Licorice Root Extract.

(please see my previous discussion under QRxLabs for a full explanation of each ingredient)

Overall, this formula will help you fade dark spots faster and unify uneven skin tone for a clearer, smoother, and more radiant-looking complexion.

Lactic acid also stimulates collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles & fine lines.

In addition, Perfect Image included a complex of skin soothing ingredients:

This helps reduce any stinging, redness, or sensitivity, both during and immediately after you apply the chemical peel (it’s especially useful as 50% lactic acid is a medium-depth peel).

Finally, like before, make sure you read the product instructions carefully before applying this peel.

My Verdict: Perfect Image Lactic 50% Gel Peel is another fantastic lactic acid peel that can help with many skin concerns, including hyperpigmentation, acne scars, dry skin, and signs of aging. This chemical peel costs $10 more than QRxLabs but offers additional skin soothing ingredients.

Perfect Image Tri-Clarity Peel Pads

Key Ingredients:

While mandelic acid is a great option on its own, it’s even better when combined with other ingredients like Salicylic Acid (a beta hydroxy acid that penetrates into oily skin to unclog pores) and Azelaic Acid (a dicarboxylic acid that exfoliates and reduces uneven skin tone).

The combination of chemical peeling agents provides multiple levels of exfoliation, since each one only penetrates your skin to a particular depth. This, in turn, helps improve deeper skin issues such as acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles and fine lines.

The Perfect Image Tri-Clarity Peel Pads are an excellent choice for clearing up acne breakouts, unclogging blocked pores, fading post-acne marks, and smoothing out your skin texture.

This product includes the aforementioned trio of Mandelic Acid, Salicylic Acid, and Azelaic Acid, along with Botanical Extracts that provide antioxidant, skin brightening, and soothing properties.

These include:

  • Ylang-Ylang (essential oil, aromatic)
  • Rooibos (red herbal tea, antioxidant)
  • Yarrow (soothing, healing)
  • Willow Bark (a natural source of salicylic acid)
  • Green Tea (soothing, antioxidant)
  • Cucumber (nourishing, hydrating)
  • Chamomile (soothing, anti-inflammatory)
  • Comfrey (soothing, anti-inflammatory)

Finally, all Perfect Image products are gluten-free, cruelty-free, and made in the USA.

My Verdict: Perfect Image Tri-Clarity Peel Pads help clear out blemishes with Salicylic Acid, provide gentle exfoliation with Mandelic Acid, and restore even skin tone with Azelaic Acid, while calming inflammatory acne with a blend of soothing botanical extracts.

Perfect Image TCA 15% Skin Peel

Salicylic Acid

Perfect Image TCA 15% Skin Peel
  • Save

Perfect Image is another fantastic option for your first TCA peel. They actually have two TCA peels, 15% and 25%, but the latter is restricted for medical professionals, so I’ll just cover the first one.

As we discussed previously, TCA is normally considered a medium peel, when using a low concentration acid (15-30%) in multiple passes or a high concentration acid (30%+) in monolayer.

But when applying a low concentration acid like 15% TCA in a single pass (layer), as demonstrated by Dr. Davin Lim in the tutorial video, it becomes a superficial peel that is safe for beginners.

In addition to TCA, Perfect Image included Salicylic Acid to help unclog pores and fight blemishes (helpful if you’re experiencing breakouts or feel congested), while a blend of Botanical Extracts provides soothing properties to reduce irritation and sensitivity from the peel.

These botanical extracts include:

Overall, Perfect Image makes an excellent TCA peel that’s a bit cheaper than Platinum Skin Care at $29.95 for 1.0 oz compared to $38.00 for 1.0 oz (set of 6 vials), respectively.

And while you’re shopping there, I also recommend adding their Premium Peel Application Pads (made from high-quality rayon) to help you apply the peel evenly and a recovery product like the Sea Whip Cucumber Detox Soothing Gel (with hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, and allantoin).

My Verdict: Perfect Image TCA 15% Skin Peel is another solid option for a beginner peel on a budget. You can even put the money you save into a cleanser, moisturizer, or accessory at Perfect Image.

Aside from a regular TCA peel, you can now get the benefits of TCA in convenient peel pad format, along with four additional alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), for multiple levels of exfoliation power.

The Perfect Image Revitaboost Peel Pads feature a unique 5-acid blend to fight signs of aging:

  • TCA: provides medium-depth penetration to the upper dermis to smooth out skin texture and stimulate collagen production to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Glycolic Acid: the smallest type of AHA that removes dead skin cells, increase cell turnover, and exfoliate damaged skin, such as acne scars, dark spots, and expression lines
  • Mandelic Acid: a very gentle AHA that penetrates skin slowly and is suitable for sensitive skin
  • Malic Acid and Citric Acid: additional AHAs derived from apples and citrus fruits, respectively
