“Super gentle. But I still glow

A super mild peel that brightens the skin nicely.

It evened out my complexion – I had some discoloration.

And I have sensitive skin so I’ve been very picky about trying acid peels to avoid irritation”

– Anna (Open Formula customer)

Gently exfoliates for a smooth skin

4% partially neutralized (aka ‘buffered’) lactic acid gently lightens the skin adding a healthy glow. Exfoliates dead skin cells to expose newer better looking skin on your face.

Use on sensitive skin

Unclogs pores and exfoliates flaky dead skin cells to create a smooth canvas ready for makeup application.


How lactic acid works

  • Lactic acid penetrates through the top layers of dead skin cells and breaks down the bond that holds them together to make them shed
  • So new, better looking skin shows on the surface of your face
“lactic acid resulted in increased skin firmness and thickness and improvement in skin smoothness and in the appearance of lines and wrinkles”
-Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology
“significantly decreased the [look of] melasma area… and also melasma severity”
-International Scholarly Research Notices

Feels amazing on your skin.

Love this! Noticeable difference in the texture of my skin. I use this every night before my Vitamin C Serum. I have sensitive skin and this does not bother me at all. No redness or irritation at all.

I really like this product... started using this after my other AHA serum ran out and I didn’t want to spend another $80 on it. I notice how bright my skin is and it’s really evened out my blotchy skin tone.

Multitasker!

If you want a product that would lighten your acne scars, keep acne under control, and brighten your complexion, this is it! This is definitely a multitasker for my combination, acne-prone, and sensitive skin. I just use this one product every night and I put the amount of AHA liquid concentrate from one whole pipette. Then I topped the serum off with a gentle lotion and that’s it. I don’t need to put anything else.

I originally got this because I ran out of my other exfoliant and thought I'd try this after reading so many great reviews on here. I was a little worried about it being too harsh for my skin (I have sensitive skin) but it did not irritate me at all. I guess that’s why they call it buffered since it is not as harsh as the regular peels.

This product was recommended to me by Open Formula. I like that it is mild and does not irritate my skin at all. I am a beginner when it comes to peels and this serum is perfect for me. Maybe after I am done with this bottle I will step up my game with the regular lactic acid peel.

I don't feel like it did anything. I used it for several weeks. I thought of giving this product a 1 star but then the customer service team was so accommodating and pleasant - they immediately gave me a refund of this product. Hence my 3 stars. I will try the regular peel instead.
