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

LOVE IT !

Love this stuff. I have fairly sensitive skin so I was worried because it says not to use on compromised skin but I haven’t had an issue. It makes my skin clean and glowing. Maybe I’m not as sensitive as I thought or this is just a really great product.

GOOD PRODUCT

I like this product a lot. I added it to my regimen last week and loving the results. I’m sensitive so the buffered version was right for me.

USE EVERYDAY TO SEE RESULTS

I use this product every night in combination with the peptide moisturizer and it does produce good results on my face. My skin is lighter than compared to before. You just have to use it regularly to see results.

Wonderful product, thanks. I say start slowly, maybe every other day or a couple of times a week for sensitive skins.

THIS IS THE REAL DEAL

I wanted to see if this was the real deal...thin consistency, check! slight tingle, check! I knew it was working like it's supposed to. I use this product every night because my skin is used to lactic acid already and then I use the unbuffered one 2-3 times per week. I wanted to get rid of my darker acne scars. It’s working so far - they have lightened up and now I can easily cover them up with concealer.

YOU NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE

If you have acne - buy this! If you have oily skin - buy this, if you have bumps, uneven skin tone, rough skin - buy THIS! It works and I’ve been using it for about 3 months and and it’s really changed my skin.

SAW A DIFFERENCE RIGHT AWAY

Love this serum or peel - whatever you call it, I call it amazing! It quickly absorbs in the skin. I bought it hoping it would improve my acne scars. After using it for a few nights, I’ve seen a noticeable difference. Thank you!
