Gentle but effective

I've been using lactic acid for the past 8 months. My skin is sensitive, so I've always been cautious with exfoliants, but this one hasn't caused any irritation. It's gentle, but effective in improving the evenness of my skin texture and reduced pilling/peeling of my skin! Great product.

Lactic Acid Plus

I've been using both lactic acid plus and lactic acid for years. The lactic acid plus really help my keratosis pilaris on the back of my arms, which I haven't had for a long, long time.

I just started using this and it's already transforming my skin. I woke up this morning and couldn't believe it. Then when I saw myself in photos -- my skin was definitely smoother, fewer blemishes and glowing. I have high hopes that I will reap more benefits as I keep using it going forward. I love that it's a clean product and powerful to the skin while also being gentle and kind.
