What's included and how do I use them?
Lactic acid is a mild chemical peel (Apha Hydroxy Acid or AHA) and is thought to be more accepted by the skin than other AHA's as our body produces lactic acid. It's a luxurious alternative to harsh scrubs or peel off face masks.
What is it used for? Lactic Acid has been known to help the following conditions
- Dry skin
- Sun damaged skin
- Blotchy pigmentation, Hyperpigmentation (this product won't help chloasma, melasma or vitiligo)
- Fine lines
This alcohol free chemical peel is infused with Rose Water and is the perfect treatment for dry or dehydrated skin.PH 3.75 and Vegan Friendly. This product can be rinsed off or left on overnight under moisturiser.
Lactic acid works at the base of the skin’s epidermis, dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells together. Because this increases cell turnover, skin becomes smoother, more elastic and more even in tone and texture.
At the same time Lactic Acid can also stimulate your skin to produce more collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin and keeps it elastic and line free; when this starts to disintegrate, skin begins to sag and wrinkle.
Aqua, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Flower water, Lactic Acid, Glycerin, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Sodium Hydroxide and Sodium Citrate.
AHA's may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit strong sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Do not use sunbeds while using products containing glycolic acid or salicylic acid.

Our fabulous little sets are a great way to introduce yourself to the amazing skin benefits of acid exfoliation as they give you the correct cleanser and toner to use before your acid, which is very important to get the best results, you don't want to use a cleanser with acids, harsh ingredients or exfoliators.
The acids come with full instructions and explain how to cleanse, tone and use the acid but to add a little more clarity -
We recommend you use your acids in the evening. To start, you'd use your sample of first cleanse oil, about a 5-10 pence piece depending on if you're wearing make-up, massage in to dry skin for roughly a minute, apply a little water which will turn your cleanser milky and rinse, do not use a face flannel, cottons pads or a cleansing brush, nothing that will drag the skin. Then pat (DO NOT RUB) your skin dry. Double cleansing in the evening is very important so repeat the process once more.
Toner, put a cotton pad (the flat pads, not cotton wool) directly on to the mouth of the bottle and tilt, move the pad around and do this roughly 5 times, there should be enough toner. Gently wipe all over your face and neck, leave to dry.
You are now ready to use your acid, following the instructions that are included.
We do not send out this guide (to save paper) so please do read before using your new set.
