My first experience with peels under The Microdelivery range was with the Vitamin C Peptide peel that gently, chemically, exfoliates dead skin leaving you with a bright, even-toned complexion.

I love glowing skin. Even before it was a trend and spawned a whole range of products to achieve that lit-from-within-look, I was sporting radiant skin.
