Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel™

Almost every skin benefits from good and sensitively formulated exfoliation.  Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel™ uniquely combines acid and enzyme technology for the most effective results. 

All skins look brighter and clearer and make up application is vastly improved.  Dry skins absorb treatments and moisturisers so they are more effective. Oily skins appear less sallow and pores are more refined without stripping the skin.  Problem skins are less likely to experience congestion and blockages caused by dead skin cells and this helps to prevent spots.  Everyone wins... it is a must-have, must-do treatment to restore a more youthful appearance and vital glow.  Retexturises all skin types to reveal a clearer, brighter, more vibrant complexion.

This rich gel formula glides onto the skin (no rubbing and scrubbing required!) and you can get on with chores while it goes to work meaning you are saving time. It is truly a skin saviour that replaces your cleanser if you are using it in the morning, so it does not even have to be an extra step in your routine.  Alternatively you can use it within an at-home facial.

Active ingredients


GLYPURE™70 is glycolic acid which peels away the ‘grey’ by removing the top layer of dead skin cells

POMEGRANATE ENZYMES help the glycolic acid to smoothly resurface the skin (like pack man)

p-REFINYL™ is a lentil extract which is shown in vitro to provide epidermal renewal and in clinical tests showed reduced sebum, pore size and an improved complexion

MEDIACALM™ stimulates the release of anti-irritant neuromediators in the skin to soothe




Apply it right down the neck and décolleté. Used on days when you are washing your hair, you can apply, leave on while you get on with other things and then step into the shower and rinse off.

Use on the back of your hands from time to time to provide an anti-ageing boost to this important area that often shows signs of skin ageing. Apply Iconic Youth Serum afterwards as a special treat.

This size is OK for carry-on air travel.

I have always loved exfoliation. The clarity it gives the skin makes all the imperfections seem less obvious. That said, I have possibly been a bit over zealous at times with scrubs. It is largely agreed that peels are best to 'anti-age' or as I prefer 'age youthfully'. In addition, if you have a problem skin it is much better too. My decision was should I go with glycolic acid or enzyme technology.

Lucky for me I had a genius formulator who managed to combine both technologies so that you get super smooth skin and all the other benefits.

The reason why people do not stick to exfoliation 2-3 times per week is, I believe, because we do not share the secret of fitting it into your morning or evening routine so that you do not feel you are taking 'extra time' to care for your skin - who wants to do that? Not me!

Here is my routine. Wake (with not make up) so apply SBEPeel in place of cleansing. Brush teeth. Go down to take tablets and drink two glasses of water. Back upstairs. Remove SBEP. Total 5 minutes but no extra time used and I just replaced my cleasing stip. It may be better for you in the evening but the secret is to fit it inbetween doing other things that you regularly do.

Sometimes I leave it on for an hour but I am NOT recommending you do that! I am only saying because though it is effective I have also inlcuded 3 calming ingredients so it is very gentle.

Rescued my skin!Review by Violet
I have been struggling with deeply congested and sensitive skin for years now and no toner or mask would ever solve the problem. It would only mute it for a period of time. I don't want to even think about how much money I have wasted on unfinished and ineffective products.

I came across this after purchasing the Merumaya cleansers and eye cream (which are all amazing), and thought why not, it seems to be suited for the problems I'm having with my skin, especially the thick looking skin description. After using this for around a month 1-2 times a week in conjunction with the cleansers, I am stunned to say it has totally rejuvenated my skin. My skin feels soft and supple, as skin should, and not appearing 'thick' or rough. It's has exposed my real skin and now I get significantly less spots and whiteheads. After using this, my skin does peel after a day or so, but isn't remotely sore or painfull, and lasts only 1-2 days and then revealing beautiful skin underneath! Also, my skin is definitely less sensitive as I am able to use products now that before would break me out as I was applying them on deeply congested skin. Could not recommend this more! A skincare must for me now!. Thank you Merumaya! (Posted on 04/01/2017)
GlowingReview by Maiden
I was given a sample of this by a friend and had forgotten to put my night peel on so used this. WOW! Ten minutes later I looked as fresh as a daisy, and my skin was radiant! That is why I am here now - to buy more! (Posted on 21/01/2016)
You can feel this working....Review by Jules
No you really can. Love the tingling you get with this, so when you are ready to take it off - your skin feels brighter and thoroughly clean (Posted on 19/10/2015)
Does exactly what it says on the tube!Review by Lisad
This is a great, 'no mess' exfoliator, which leaves my skin feeling really smooth, hydrated and looking brighter. (Posted on 28/04/2015)
Smooth and very healthy looking skinReview by Lyn P
I've used exfoliation products but have never had a peel

Last night tried Skin Brightening Exfoliating Peel. Only small amount needed and left it on for about 10 minutes

Washed it off and was left with a smooth and very healthy looking skin, the best it has felt and looked since had course of microdermabrasion months ago

All those blackheads that can only be seen with a magnifying glass have gone and the white "bumps" at the top of cheeks below my eyes (bags) have almost disappeared

Call myself a Merumaya babe ... poetic licence as I'm 74 years old

A fantastic productReview by Tehmina
This is such a fantastic product, it really leaves your skin buttery smooth. (Posted on 28/07/2014)
I love it!Review by Rosalind Ayla
This is one of the most effective exfoliators I have ever used. The gel formulation glides onto the skin and the fragrance is pleasent to inhale. You may experience a little tingling when using this product, but it certainly does what it says on the tin - once the product is washed off my skin feels smooth and looks radiant. I suffer from hyperpigmentation and since using this product my skin has become more even in tone!
I love it!
