Wonderful tool for applying hydroxy acid peels. Professional Boar's Hair Glycolic Brush. Sturdy construction so that it does not break down after repeated acid applications. It is meant to be applied in a smooth, painting motion across your face.
*Caution. Make sure to tap brush against cup repeatedly to avoid any dripping of the peel solution. Another alternative to the Fan Brush is the Gauze Pad.
VERY ROUGH 4

(Platinum Comments below). This brush is very very stiff and low quality. It's almost like using a firm toothbrush against your skin and it feels like I'm actually scratching my skin, like there are little barbs on it. I've tried using it at several different times because sometimes my skin is more sensitive than others, but no luck. I absolutely do not recommend it for anyone; it's way too harsh on delicate facial skin, may be good for a paint brush though. *This is a professional Boar's Hair Glycolic Brush.

When utilized in this fashion it is very smooth. It should not be used with more abrasive acids though - as it may break down.
GREAT BRUSH! 5

I Honestly, I use this brush for all of the peels I use (mandelic, TCA, Sal acid). It works great and I prefer it over the swiping method using gauze...you just have to be very careful to make sure you don't have too much peel on the brush so that the peel doesn't run down your face...when I brush it on, I make sure the brush is just a 'little' more than damp by touching the brush on the side of the little cup I put the peel in. It works excellent for me and I feel it gives me the most even application. Also, I use a gentle non soap facial cleanser to clean the brush immediately following the peel application while the peel is doing its magic. I've been using this brush for over a year about every 2-3 weeks and it's held up great!
