Pure+Simple: Lactic Acid Plus 10% Review

Of all the products that I received from Pure+Simple, this is my absolute favourite. As much as I love the blushes, this product takes the cake! I love cake, wish I had some right now actually..ugh..on to the review.

Description: Lactic Acid Plus is a 10% concentrate of natural Lactic Acid, in a base of Algin and Aloe Vera. It is an ideal exfoliant and rejuvenator for thick + congested skin in need of a more potent peel.
  • Ideal for normal to oilier skin types in need of decongestion + rejuvenation.
  • Lactic Acid is the gentlest type of AHAs used by both estheticians and doctors to stimulate collagen production + reduce the appearance of facial lines
  • Lactic acid is our preferred AHA because is does not dehydrate the skin like other AHAs
  • Use lactic acid to reduce the incidence of comedomes by deep cleaning pores + rejuvenating skin for a fresh, moist look
  • Because Lactic Acid is a naturally occurring human metabolite, there is a lower chance for an allergic reaction
  • Apply it to face + neck to rejuvenate mature, dry skin
  • Great for reducing the appearance of scars + acne
  • For most skin types it is recommended that you prepare your skin for this strong exfoliant with first using Lactic Acid Original 5%

We all know by now, hopefully, how much I loveeeeeeee lactic and glycolic acid. Seriously, they're the best for all skin types. Lactic is definitely more gentle and great for dry skin because it does provide moisture. It's also great for lightening scars. It's great for all skin types because it's still an acid which helps bring the gunk under your skin to the surface. This nightly treatment, comes in a glass bottle with a pump which can be returned for $1 towards your next purchase. It's best to keep it out of direct sunlight since it's not in a dark glass bottle. Also, make sure you use sunscreen in the morning. Acids make your skin more sensitive to the sun which means you can easily burn.

I have been using this product almost every night, alternating between this and the Pai Rosehip Oil and am in love. It's so gentle and has been aiding in the reduction and lightening of my acne and acne scars. Damn you acne and damn you scars that were left behind as a horrible reminder :*(! I curse you! I do still get hormonal breakouts and it`s been exceptionally bad this month, so I`m really glad I have this superb serum on hand. It is rather watery in consistency, probably because the first ingredient is water *duh*, but you only need 2 pumps or so for your face and neck because it spreads so nicely. I have officially added this to my skin care routine and have decided that I cannot live without it. I highly recommend this product and if you`re going to give one of Pure+Simple's skin care products a try, it should be this one. You will not be disappointed. My nightly dream team: Pure+Simple Lactic Plus, DeVita High Performance Glycolic Blend and Pai Rosehip Bioregenerate Fruit &Seed Oil Blend!

Retails for $54.95 for 50ml. Check out www.pureandsimple.ca for more info and to purchase.
