This stuff really works!

I have oily combination skin and acne scars on my cheeks. When I used the 40% LAP, I noticed a difference right away - my skin isn't oily anymore and my red/brown/dark spots are getting smaller and lighter each day. My skin is glowing. My family and friends noticed too. I use coconut oil as my moisterizer and/or sunscreen, especially when I go out. I don't wear any makeup because I want my skin to heal and now that my skin looks better, I don't ever want to wear makeup again. I might go for a tinted moisterizer but thats about it. I'm so happy with the results. It's really cheap and I still have so much of the bottle left. I'm at week 4, doing LAP's every 5 days. I recently purchased the 55% LAP which I'm going to use once my bottle is done. My only concern is thinning skin - if you peel, you must wait for it to heal! I'm trying to be patient but I'm so excited about the results at the same time!

helps hyperpigmentation helps clear skin prevents new acne stings a bit cant use makeup day after peel avoiding the sun i have been using this for a year now.. it definatly helps me with scars . it does not minimize scars but it helps clear up post hyper pigmentation. i like to use this before i start my cycle cuz it minimizes breakouts. this is a chemical exfoliant and it will help your skin. first off when u first start using this product start with a low dose i started with 40% lactic acid i bought online. contact me ill give u the info. and when u first start you will break out it purges ur skin the fist time its completley natural. its bringing the dirt in your skin to the surface faster hence " exfoliant" after that moisterize!!! a good non codmegenic brand please. and i avoid using makeup the day after i peel to keep the fresh skin clean and avoid the sun... and p.s i had moderate acne

nothing noticeable vertigo, nausea It was my first and LAST lactic acid peel. The technician left the peel on for the minimum amount of time since it was my first. I was dizzy immediately after standing up and could not walk straight. Went home and a full-on vertigo spell ensued that lasted 3 days. Like another reviewer, I too, have occasionally had the same result from spray tans or home tanning. Beware!

Too soon to tell the effect on my skin nausea, dizziness, vomiting. First LAP yesterday 6PM. It was on my face 5 mins. Dizzy and disoriented immediately afterwards. Sick to my stomach all evening and woke up with mild vertigo, dizziness and vomited once. Couldn't go to work. I don't know why I've reacted like this, but do have sensitive skin and once got vertigo from using one brand of self tanning lotion. Cannot find anyone on the Web (yet) with same reaction. Just want to say, think and read lots before deciding on any of these procedures.

fades red marks burns, stings, can be irritating, not effective on current acne I've been through everything...home treatments like tea/honey/lemon juice to expensive serums and even v-beam. But nothing has been as effective on stubborn red marks than my 50% lactic acid peel. It does take a while, but you'll notice a satisfying improvement after a month. Your skin even glows a little bit. They advise you to use this once a week....but I use it every other day :D It was working for me until i left it on for over 10 minutes (bad) and i burnt my skin off, leaving it red and flaky and scaly for over a week. I use this as a spot treatments on red marks that i've had for over 2 years. (sad sad life hahahahaha) I don't recommend using it on open skin (it'll bleed instantly) or even on current acne. Just red marks/scars. Good luck on your journeys!

I am so happy to see someone say that something works for hyperpigmentation!!!!!! I have had some small marks on chin for years... I cant wait to try this. Although I am using Ziana gel right now I wonder if that will effect it?

Reduces hyper pigmentation/scars Skin felt smoother Didn't do much for my acne Skin becomes really sensitive to sun the day after I choose lactic acid peels because my hyper pigmentation was pretty severe. Now after a month of using 50% concentration, my skin is noticeably clearer, the marks, I would say are much lighter in appearance. If your thinking about it, go get it. You definitely can't go wrong with this product. It's cheap and a high return for such a low-risk :P Just make sure you don't leave it on for more than 8 minutes and make sure you apply a good moisturizer/sunscreen. Cheers.

Removes hyperpigmentation, acne and acne scars. Also leave face feeling smoother. Burns like hades! I started using a 40% LA peel on my entire face, for about 5 mins and progressed to about 10 mins. By then it had stopped burning so badly and my skin was clearing up. I then jumped to 88% and started using it for spot treatments. I discovered that if a new pimple sprouted, I could put a dab of the LA 88% on it and it would completely remove the pimple. However, I once forgot I'd had it on and left it on for 15 mins, which was extremely bad because I got a chemical burn and was left with blackened areas where I'd applied it. So be extremely careful about that.

Fades hyperpigmentation (red marks) nicely Leaves skin very smooth May burn for your first application Don't use this peel for acne. If acne is your concern do salicylic peels. However if hyperpigmentation is a problem, lactic peels are amazing. After only two at home peels my red marks have improved by at least 30%. The strength is 40% and I use it every 5 days.

Did it end up clearing your hyperpigmentation fully?

Reduces cystic acne, reduces sebum production Burns!!! I started to get a really bad acne break out and when benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid face washes weren't effective so I decided to try 50% lactic acid I bought from eBay. The first time I used it, I only left it on my face for one minute and it didn't really burn. I noticed that I didn't get any new pimples to form on my face. The next day I left it on my face for 3 minutes, and I felt some sting to it but I wasn't left red or peeling hours later.. I decided to spot treat these two huge cystic pimples on my forehead by leaving the lactic acid on overnight (which probably isn't recommended). In the morning I noticed that the pimples reduced in size by 80%!! I couldn't believe it!! I also noticed by using lactic acid for a week, my face isn't oily like it usually is. (I usually have to use oil absorbing sheets for my face at least twice in one day) but now I don't .. By day 4, the sides of my nose and crease of my chin started to flake alot when I woke up in the morning, so I had to gently exfoliate and apply a really good moisturizer. Had I known about lactic acid earlier, I would have saved alot of money from spending it on useless over-the-counter products and prescriptions. I highly recommend this!!

It helps a bit. My pores look a little better, size wise, but nothing significant, yet. I've only used lactic acid 25% twice. I'd probably have to do 5 more treatments to see real results BURNT THE HELL OUT OF ME! but I'm sensitive all around, so it was no surprise. I used it a day ago. My skin feels a bit tender. It feels like I got sun-burn. I noticed some fine lines, but that just may be from the burn effect. So, I new to acids. I'm extra sensitive, so that's why I resorted to lactic acid. I really can't give a whole review yet, just because I feel I haven't done enough treatments. Overall, clearing skin wise, mehhh.... it helped some blackheads and whiteheads. It dried some pimples faster than the usual speed for me. My scars still look prominent. My wrinkles still look apparent. Well see... I'm going to do a few more treatments and keep y'all posted. GOOD LUCK. OH, and I would recommend it only to those who tried everything... doesn't hurt to try....

cheap prevents acne makes skin smoother can cause undesirable reaction in people with sensitive skin or those who go in the sun a lot my source for lactic acid is actually sour cream, which i mix with honey, both of which are readily available. i apply this mask once a week, and it has helped to reduce scarring, as well as breakouts themselves. so yeah, it worked for me :).

Made skin softer. Slighty lightened hyperpigmentation. Didn't do much for my acne. I think this would work well for scars if you got a couple of peels done, but it doesn't do much for acne, so I think its best for people who already have there acne under control.

This is amazing stuff! not only has it helped to clear up the majority of my acne, but it has also cleared my acne scars and made my skin look amazingly young and soft. This can dry out your skin and it kind of burns when you put it on It's amazing. I've given myself one peel every week for the past four months and my skin keeps getting better :)

Softer Skin No further breakouts Hard to get without resorting to ebay haha Stings I'm 16 and have always had very severe acne and had been using Proactiv for many years to suppress it, but breakouts occur regularly, although less than if I don't use Proactiv at all. I decided to give Lactic acid a go after coming across it on this site, and it seems to make my skin softer, and ever since I haven't had any more breakouts.. yet. Seems to be working just fine right now and I'm happy that I bought it. I have the 40% Lactic+ 30% salaytic acid solution. But due to my acne severity, I apply benzroyl peroxide additionally after the peel before I go to bed.

little to no redness(what redness i had was gone in less than two hrs) the peel was just a little uncomfortable on my skin after one treatment i can already tell a difference i did the peel about six o clock last night, around eleven i already noticed the peeling, and when i woke up im not gonna lie it was pretty gross with all the dead skin, but i washed my face with a gentle cleanser and applied aloe vera and its better My gramma did a 20% lactic acid peel for me, she said its not something i can just go out and buy so for what i had done you would need to go to someone who professionally does this stuff and since im her granddaughter shes not charging me for this so im not sure the cost, but i would think its pretty reasonable. we only left it on for about 5 or 6 min. This morning i think my face already looks better, the red scars i have i can tell faded a bit and the pimple i did have are less inflammed. Im a little scared that the peeling will keep up but so far i think this is amazing. ill keep posting updates, im going to keep doing a peel every ten days until my red scars are all gone and my skin is pretty again!

-Helped greatly with hyperpigmented marks. -Helped with acne/pimples. -Helped with texture and skin in general. -None. This is one of the best products I used in a while. After having beat acne, it left my skin with red/black brownish spots and luckily, this is the first product I came across. I started using it a month ago and now I have little or no redmarks left where I had it the most. The only con I experienced is the peeling on the 2nd day after I applied the peel.

My pores are open a bit and I am hopin to see improvement after about 2 months of use.

I am using a cream with 10% lactic acid in conjuction with a tretinoin cream (0.05%) for two weeks and I have seen a great difference in my red marks and less acne forming! Sun sensitivity Lactic acid is very effective at fading acne marks!

it's mild, no burning, leaves skin super soft after application with a healthy glow If you skin is not used to stronger peels and products this will be a great starting point and may be all you need. It will take some time to work, for me it will take even longer. since I'm pregnant I can no longer use my Retin-A which really sucks!! I have to be very cautious with the peels that I can use and how it may or may not affect the baby, says skin care experts. So at this time where my face is used to stronger peels I have been reduced to using the lactic acid peels from Makeup Artist along with the Vita C serum to tame my breakouts from hormones and to reduce past blemish scars, basically pick up where the Retin-A left off. It has been 2 weeks since I began and I have done 3 peels thus far. Retin-A is a big shoe to fill and the lactic acid is gonna take twice as long to get me the same results. I will stay optimistic and continue to use it throughout the duration of my pregnancy and breastfeeding since I have no other choice, but as soon as I'm done me and Retin-A have a heavy date lol
