This medium-strength peeling formulation contains 4% Buffered Lactic Acid and offers mild skin exfoliation for a brighter skin tone. “Buffered” means that the Lactic Acid is partially neutralized to minimize possible sensitivity.

Lactic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that exfoliates the skin. It is one of the least irritating alpha hydroxy acids. It helps the older, dull cells on the skin’s surface to slough away by dissolving the bonds that hold them together. Lactic also supports the skin’s natural moisture factor (NMF), or the way the skin keeps itself hydrated.

Lactic acid should not be used on sensitive, peeling or compromised skin. Please refer to additional sun protection note below.

Targets: Uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines.

Skin feel: Polished and smooth.

Skin Types:

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Dry
  • Sensitive

This nailed it

Had been struggling with adult acne for years. Not sure if this is the only reason but this product seems to have really helped me. Hope it does the same for you.

Needs persistence

You can’t expect immediate results with this product. If you are consistent though you will see your skin improve.

Better than I thought

I had my doubts but this actually performed better than I thought. I know it’s buffered but I was still expecting it to tingle. Not really, it actually felt fine.

Great for acne

I didn't have anything to lose since I always had bad acne -whether from certain foods or stress - my skin has always been sensitive. I started noticing a difference within 3-4 days. My skin started looking clearer and vibrant.

Was worried at first

I was a little worried about it being too harsh for my skin (I have sensitive skin) but it was only tingling for 20 seconds max. Skin feels great now.

Gentle Enough To Use Every Night.

It is one of the best skin care products that I own. This is a great product if you are just starting to use AHA/BHA and have sensitive skin.
