This higher strength Lactic Acid peeling formulation exfoliates the skin for a brighter and more even skin tone.

Present in the formula at 10% concentration, 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.

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

Skin feel: Polished and smooth.

Skin Types:

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Dry

It works

The exfoliation is not visible to the naked eye but trust me it does get rig of dead skin cells because my make up goes on so much smoother after using this peel.

IT WORKED ON MY ACNE

Love this Lactic Acid Peel! I use it about 3-4x a week to control my acne. It works really well. I didn’t start with the buffered, I went full force with this but lactic acid is more gentle and moisturizing so I wasn’t worried. My skin is tough and thick so it can take a lot. I’ll even use this to spot treat my breakouts and in a couple of days they are already starting to go down.

USE THIS FOR SMOOTH SKIN

This stuff is awesome! If you haven't tried it, you should. I would recommend it for all skin types because lactic acid is gentle, hydrating, and such a great exfoliant. They couldn’t of picked a better acid for an at-home peel. I’m an avid skincare user and I know my stuff so if you use this a few times a week your skin will feel smoother and look more refreshed Be sure to use it at night and if you have sensitive skin I would recommend using the hyaluronic acid moisturizer with it to calm and avoid flaking.

IT`S GOOD FOR SENSITIVE SKIN

I have more sensitive skin but I get peels at the spa once a month that are usually an AHA one so I knew this wouldn’t hurt my skin. It did tingle a lot the first time I used it but I just rinsed it away with water after a few minutes and the stinging stopped. I use it once a week in addition to my enzyme wash and after I got used to it, it was fine.

GREAT PRODUCT FOR THE PRICE

For the price, this is a great product! I started with the buffered lactic acid and that was good but it’s not as potent so I was excited to get up to the 10% peel. I use this 2-3 times per week at night, it layers really nice under my moisturizer. The morning after using this my skin is brighter and smoother. My favorite part? Cruelty free. Vegan. Paraben free. Sulfate free. No fragrance!!!

DIDN`T HAVE AMAZING RESULTS

I’m not a stranger to acid peels and thought this would be a good one to alternate with my stronger glycolic peels. It’s ok - didn’t deliver the amazing results other people have mentioned. I didn’t peel or flake, I didn't do anything. It’s cheap so I don’t feel like I wasted money but I was expecting a lot more.

CLEARED OUT MY PORES

Before I started using this product, I had to exfoliate every other day. I would see foundation stuck in my pores and then of course that made me break out with cystic acne. Of course exfoliating that much made my skin really sensitive so I didn’t know what to use at that point. It was really frustrating. I did some research and read reviews of the Lactic Acid Peel that it was better for sensitive skin but it cleaned out the pores. So I tried it and I’m not frustrated anymore! I use it a few times a week but I’m hoping to work my way up to using it every night. It helps my skin not be so red and sensitive too.

MY SKIN HAS NEVER LOOKED BETTER

This Lactic acid is so good. It absorbs so well and doesn’t stink. I use this in my PM routine of the oil cleanser that is great at taking off my makeup, then I use the seaweed toner, and then apply the Lactic Acid. My skin has never looked better. The texture is smooth and my dark spots have lightened up. I haven’t had a breakout in 2 weeks. I can’t say enough good things about this and ALL the products on Open Formula.

START SLOWLY AND YOU WON’T HAVE A PROBLEM

I love this product but don’t start too fast with it. I went hard core and started using it every night and then started to break out and everything I put on my skin felt stingy and I was dry all the time. I stopped using this for a couple of weeks and then introduced it again slowly at night just 2 times a week. No irritation this time. So I started mixing it with my moisturizer and made it my new nightly ritual. The cream helps to buffer it which I think works better.

LOVING THE RESULTS

Love the results so far and I’ve only used it 4 times. I have the dreaded combination of oily and sensitive skin with very large pores and acne scars - FYI don’t pick at your acne when you’re a teenager. You WILL scar. But after this week I can tell my pores are getting smaller, my scars are getting smoother, and it’s even helping with wrinkles. I don’t have deep wrinkles but I swear it makes me look younger. Try to only use it at night but if you do wear during the day Make SURE you wear SPF of 30 or higher, you WILL burn if you don’t.
