Wondering if any of you have tried at home peels- like glycolic acid, lactic acid or TCA?

I just tried the Makeup Artists Choice 40% lactic acid peel and the Copper Peptide serum tonight for the first time. It *definitely* burned a little going on, but I don't see any redness right now- though I'm a little scared to see what I find when I wake up in the morning

Have any of you tried these products? What were your experiences with them? I'm trying to get rid of some minor sun damage and minor acne scars (both hyperpigmented ones and atrophic ones) and I'm *really* hoping to have some luck with these, since I've no desire to shell out big bucks for professional peels yet!

I did my efudex peel at home, but under the supervision of a doctor. It was a very strong peel. The treatment was nothing short of horrific, but my skin is like butter now.

I've done several 55% lactic acid peels from MUAC & 2 15% TCA peels. Very effective & worth the downtime. Love the copper peptides also.
