Transform your skin while you sleep for a dramatically softer, smoother, younger-looking complexion overnight. Formulated with the RetAsphere Smart Release™ Carrier System, this innovative, leave-on micro peel gently infuses skin with pure Retinol to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and speed up cell renewal. A groundbreaking combination of 10% Glycolic Acid and Lactose helps resurface skin to a smooth, soft texture and reduces the look of pores. The result: visibly reduced wrinkles, restored radiance, and skin that appears softer, smoother and younger-looking by morning!

  • The RetAsphere Smart Release™ Carrier System encapsulates pure Retinol in a lipid shell so it can penetrate deep into the epidermis - where it is most effective – to help diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles.  This patent-pending technology utilizes time-release absorption and melts gently into the skin to help prevent irritation and dryness.
  • 10% Glycolic Acid derived from sugar cane and beets, gently exfoliates the uppermost layer of skin to reveal a fresh, renewed complexion instantly
  • Natural Lactose helps skin renew at an optimal rate to help prevent dryness and flaking
  • Fast-penetrating Hyaluronic Acid delivers a surge of moisture to visibly plump and smooth the skin’s surface
  • Licorice Extract and Arbutin help to brighten skin and help diminish the appearance of discoloration

RetAsphere Micro Peel Retinol Glycolic Treatment
I use this product on alternating nights with the Retasphere cream. I was nervous at first thinking it would irritate my skin but it didn't! I've noticed a huge difference in my skin, smoother and brighter. And I also feel like it has helped with occasional acne pop ups.

I love peels!
I must be one lucky girl, because I work at Nordstrom and receive 20% off Kate Somerville products and the girls at the counter know how much I love KS products and never fail to assist me. Getting a peel would cost me $75-$125 but not anymore with this product! I've already used it twice and still have a decent amount in the tube. It already paid for itself!

Great for dry skin too!
I have really dry skin right now because of the weather and this product worked great to smooth out my skin and even made it feel way better! The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because of the smell. It's not horrible bad, but don't put it right under your nose. Otherwise this product is awesome!

Great Product
I got to try out a sample of this in one of my last Kate Somerville orders, and I'm very impressed so far! After the first use, my face was much smoother and any acne had noticeably calmed down. I would absolutely consider buying the full product so I can see how much more my skin will improve!

Worth the Purchase
I wake up to beautifully glowing skin every morning. My face looks youthful, hydrated, and bright. The only negative: It is supposed to help diminish the appearance of discoloration, which I have not noticed so I will take off half a star for that, and another half for pricing. Perhaps I need to use it for a longer period of time? Something to look into. Overall, I think it is worth the purchase because it does almost everything it says it will.
