After ten minutes, the product has dried into the skin and is ready to be rinsed off. My skin was very soft, brighter, and a little bit tighter - but not stripped of moisture. I was actually pretty surprised with the results since I didn't feel it working during the ten minute time period like a peel typically should. The product is non-irritating, and with prolonged use, the brightening effects would likely be apparent.
For the 3ml sample, I was able to get 3 good uses out of it, meaning that the $40 full sized product for 40ml will give you about 40 uses, equalling out to $1 per use. Of course it's not a full strength peel that you would get if you go to the spa, but this one soothes the skin, and is a great way to take 10 minutes to just relax and let the product do its work.
Available for purchase via Sephora and Caudalie.
