Amazing for congested & oily skin

I’ve been using this product for about 2years now and it’s one of my go-tos when it comes to helping skin with clearing pores and recovering from hot trips where I can’t follow my proper daily skin routine. It’s really good, but make sure to moisturize after!

Got a facial at Pure+Simple and was told my skin was dehydrated, thick and tough. The facial person suggested the Minimalist Face Lift Serum (also available at and possibly by P+S, and the Lactic Acid Plus. Been using it along with the elixir and a moisturizer for a few weeks now, and my skin is better than it's been in years. Soft, glowing and almost clear!

Review

I have dry skin and break out a lot on my forehead and cheeks, so when I was introduced to this product I was excited to try something that just might help minimize that, and boy oh boy did it minimize but it basically eliminated it, only at that time of the month will I get a pimple or two in my cheek area but my forehead has been clear from breakouts for the most part, and I know this has had a lot to do with it, along with changing my whole skin care regime, I am so glad I listened to my aesthetician and buy what she recommends because my skin is now thanking me lol. Pure & Simple has some of the best natural products, and def the best that Ive tried.

I break out, but my skin isn't oily, it's actually dry, especially in the winter, when it can get flaky, even though I moisturize and drink enough water. I've been using this product for about six months. I use it 1-2 times per week. This 10% Lactic Acid Plus gets rid of my flaky skin keeping it fresh and unclogged, and has minimized my breakouts. Since I didn't start with the 5%, I found that using the 10% the first 2 or 3 times felt harsher on my skin than it did afterwards. My skin still feels tingly when I apply it, but that only lasts for a minute. I think unless someone has very sensitive skin, starting with the 10% should be fine.
