Sunburn alert: ‘Contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that may increase skin’s sun sensitivity and the chance of sunburn. Use only as directed. Avoid contact with the eyes. If irritation persists discontinue use and consult a physician. It is recommended that prior to exposure to the sun, users cover areas where AHAs have been applied with sunscreen. Contact of the product with the skin must be of limited frequency or duration.’

All Ingredients:

Water/Aqua/Eau, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Lactic Acid, Squalane, Glycerin, Sodium Hydroxide, Cetearyl Olivate, Propanediol, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lespedeza Capitata Leaf/Stem Extract, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Acacia Senegal Gum, Sodium Gluconate, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Linalool.

  • Yes, Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum is safe for daily use and does not need to be washed off. However, you can absolutely cleanse your skin during your AM routine if you so desire.
  • The AHAs in Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so it is always recommended to wear SPF during the day.
  • Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum has a creamy texture that penetrates without leaving a sticky after feel.
  • Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum exfoliates skin, which can help reduce the appearance of discoloration and uneven skin tone. Be sure to wear SPF during the day.
  • Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum hasn’t been tested for use with retinol. If you have sensitive skin, it is always a good idea to do a patch test first. If you were to use a conventional retinol with this product a good practice would be to alternate days between this and your retinol product. A great alternative is Phyto-Retinol Serum, which can be used with this and doesn’t have the same photosensitivity as traditional retinol. We suggest Phyto-Retinol Serum in the morning and Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum at night. If you want to use them together, apply Phyto-Retinol Serum first, then layer Lactic Acid Resurfacing Night Serum over.

Truly works overnight!

I have tried dozens of various skincare products and this is the only one that truly works overnight. I have only used it two nights so far and my skin looks more even and brighter.

Works great!

I experienced smooth skin overnight and noticed a change in the texture of my skin. I have roscea and this did not hurt it at all. It definitely exfoliates my skin and hydrates it.
