Apply to clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye area. Let the skin absorb it for 15 minutes to exfoliate + brighten. Follow with serum + moisturizer. Use only at night.
For thick or very congested skin switch between a manual scrub and Lactic Acid each day.Leave on overnight underneath your serum + moisturizer for a deeper exfoliation. Always follow with an SPF the next day.Using 5% Lactic Acid is a great way to prepare the skin for the use of higher percentages of Lactic Acid in a program of skin exfoliation and rejuvenation.
This formula is wonderful! Gentle but super effective, my facial complexion is brighter, clearer and smoother. I have used it nightly for the past several weeks. Excellent value and results!!!!
I started using this at the end of a very long winter, my skin was flakey in areas, plagued with blackheads in other and curious under the skin bumps all over. I have been using this product a few times a week and within the first few uses, the flakies are greatly diminished, texture is better, my skin is definitely brighter and moisture levels are way better. I have been using this in conjunction with Holistic Vanity's Damage Care - Brightening Hyaluronic Lotion. I look forward to continued improvement with longer use of these two products together!
I love this exfoliant! It is mild and doesn't scratch the skin, in contrast with most exfoliating scrubs. It restores my skin's natural pH and prevents the apparition of future break-outs. Ever since I've been using it on a bi-weekly basis, my face looks radiant and healthy! I definitely recommend this product!
I love this product! My skin is visibly different after just a few applications - looks smoother and softer almost immediately. I've looked for comparable products as I find it a bit pricey, but haven't found anything that works as well. That being said, it does last a long time. It really does soften fine lines (hurray!) and clear congestion so my moisturizer even works better as well! I just wish it were a tad cheaper as I would love to use it all the time! :)
Lactic acid is great, it provides such a gentle way to exfoliate, that doesn't leave your skin red or raw. And it's safe enough to use everyday. It has really helped with my acne, to clear blocked pores.
