I purchased this off of MUACs website. I love it! I use it on my face as well as on my hands. I suffer from hyperpigmentation and i need something that will get the job done! $30 out of my pocket?! I would rather pay that then get it done in a spa for $300! call me a rodent but I love paying for this inexpensive product and getting the same benefits as a spa. keep this on the DL MUA but i had some hyperpigmentation on my behind from a tanning day in the bahamas and i used this when i got back right on that puppy and the next week it was gone! Trust a sister this is AMAZING!

I have been using the MUAC Lactic Acid Peel for over a year off and on as needed. It is a really great value and provides a good gentle peel. I have sent friends and family to the site to try their products. I have very finicky skin that is both sensitive and dry at spots and blemish prone. This makes my skin a little red but it drys up all of my blemishes. The packaging is utilitarian but the little bottle lasts quite a long time.
I highly recommend.

ABOUT MY SKIN: After a particularly bad cystic acne outbreak in early 2010, my face was left with some shallow icepick scars and very noticeable hyperpigmentation on my fair skin. I also have some expression lines on my forehead, general ruddiness, and I seem to have lost some of my youthful glow. Since getting to the bottom of my hormone issues, I have not had a single breakout since July of last year. Currently, I may get one very small pimple a month, which fades within a few days (without even bothering to treat it) and I do have a few minor clogged pores at any given time.
I have used this peel 6 times, once per week since December 7th. I started with 2 minutes and have worked my way up to 5 minutes thus far. It stings a little, but nothing really bothersome. After a peel, my skin feels incredibly smooth and a tiny bit dry/tight. One thing I have noticed is that the day after a peel, my skin looks a bit more rough than usual, but to such a minimal degree that I doubt anyone but me even notices.
Overall, this peel has faded some of my hyperpigmentation spots by about 40% or so. My more major spots have not faded quite so much, but there has been some improvement. I have a bit more of a glow now as well. One thing that has disappointed me is that I haven't noticed as much of a 'skin-smoothing' effect as I would have hoped, and there has not much of an improvement in the overall tone of my face. I understand that the results of this peel are cumulative, however, so perhaps that will come down the line at some point.
I am unsure how I will proceed from here on out. I will continue to use MUAC's products, as I think they are a wonderful company that makes superior products for incredibly reasonable costs. However, I am not seeing as much improvement as I had hoped with this particular peel. I may move up to the 55% Lactic Acid peel soon and just finish up the 40% on my neck/chest/hands. I have the 12.5% TCA peel by MUAC, which I bought to smooth out some of my acne scarring and overall texture issues, but I have not gotten up the nerve to use it yet, lol.
I will update as I proceed. Love MUAC!
UPDATE: I have now done 11 peels and have worked my way up to the full 7 minutes per peel. The results have gotten better and better. My forehead lines have smoothed out a lot, which I never expected from this peel. My hyperpigmentation is fading more and more and I am using MUCH less concealer now. In my previous review I had expressed my disappointment over not getting much of skin-smoothing effect, but I am starting to see results with that now. Not much, but definitely there! The perpetual clogs on the sides of my nostrils have been greatly reduced. I have decided to stick with the 40% for now and bump up to 2x per week. I will start with 3 minutes for the 2nd weekly peel, not just jump in with the full 7minutes. Very very very happy!

I'm writing this prematurely, having only used it twice. I wanted to clear up a few concerns I had so that others in my position would be able to enjoy this product. I have sensitive but pretty normal skin. I don't need a dense moisturizer but don't get oily. I do, however, breakout. I also have the beginnings of wrinkles. Venturing into the skincare world, I decided to try a peel. I emailed CS first and they recommended this one, with the understanding I tolerate AHA very well. It stings my face and itches but it's not intolerable. I get slightly red but never peeled. However, I am breaking out (normal because of exfoliation and resurfacing) and it's bothering me. It's not bad, it's just the way it did before I started AHA. As time goes by it'll stop, says the website. I will absolutely update and will not repurchase this level but will definitely work up to stronger peels. Love this brand!

My skin has been crazy lately- out of control, hormonal. i'll have perfect skin, and then all of a sudden, 1 or 2 spots, and i was getting 1 cyst a week on my cheeks, jawline, chin, temples, or forehead. it was crazy. i felt like i couldn't do anything. i'm only 25. i have some white marks on my forehead- from not using sunscreen when i had a spot! (always wear sunscreen!), a few pin size marks on my cheeks. a little wrinkle on my forehead (i'm very critical of myself though). i started drinking more water, sleeping 8hrs every night, decreased my yogurt intake, AND i thought i'd try this lactic acid 40% peel. I use Belli Body pregnancy lactic acid cleanser 2-3x's/wk, so my skin likes this stuff.
I really liked this product. I received it the next day after I ordered it. I actually wash my fash with Clean and Clear acne control cleanser, then Dickinson's Witch hazel- which balances the skin's pH. I then put just a little of the 40% acid on my finger tip and rub it all over my face, adding a little more to the places I want to concentrate it. It says to leave on for 3-7 minutes. I've done the process twice in one week.
The first time, i left it on for 7 min, and rinsed off. No burning, stinging, irritation, pinkness. My skin felt incredibly smooth, literally finer than glass and it felt like SILK, no joke. I got very excited. I only got 1 little white head this week. No blackheads, no cysts, no spots. and the white head on my cheek, had completely dried up by morning and was gone. I did the process again 3 days later, and again! amazing results. I left it on this time for 15 minutes! hmm...am I pushing my luck? Well i had some hyperpigmentation on my left cheek, completely gone. the cyst mark on my chin, GONE, the wrinkle on my forehead, GONE, white spots on my forehead- i have like 10!- very much faded, enough where i didn't wear any foundation this week, just a little concealer and foundation.
Now, I also use the skin bleaching gel after I apply this acid. and I use the gel every morning and pm. I also use C/C ance control cleanser, Dickinson's Witch Hazel, Stridex red pads, and C/C dual action moisturizer in the am. At night i don't moisturize, but put C/C persa gel 10% BP after the gel. I think the BP has gotten rid of the spots too. All of these have helped. I really like MUAC's products. very basic, simple, easy, effective, with great results. I bought the Rosehip hibiscus cream, but i got a spot right where i had tested it only, so i don't think my skin likes cream. To let you know my skin is combination, i get hormonal acne with cysts, you can't see them, but I FEEL them!
I'm thinking of uping the lactic acid %, or should I try the glycolic acid since it's stronger? I was seriously going to go to the derm for procedures which would have been costly. So MUAC has saved me. I would recommend!
UPDATE 2/2/11: I've been using this twice per week for more than a month now. I can seriously leave it on my skin for 1hr+!!! and NO stinging, redness, just very smooth. I really love lactic acid on my skin- i've been using Alpha Hydrox the past 2 weeks, and my skin doesn't like glycolic acid, it causes breakouts, but it does my my skin extra smooth. But I'd rather stick with the lactic acid that smoothes and doesn't cause breakouts. It does seem to keep the oil at bay, keeps pores clear, skin silky smooth, has diminished my sun spots, slight wrinkles on forehead, and just made my skin more even. I'm definitely going to continue using this as maintenance, but I'm going to try a jessner or tca peel. I want to get deeper, to get rid of some ice pick and pocket marks, and really hit the wrinkles. I think it'll help with the cysts I get during the month I'm hormonal.

I have been reading about MUAC proucts for years and finally broke down and ordered their 5% Salicylic acid as well as the 15% peel. The 15% cleared a few spots on my back almost immediately. I used the 5% on my husbands nose, followed by a Biore and the results were AMAZING.
The truly amazing part is that I ordered on a Friday morning, and received my package on a Saturday! I then, duh, realized that MUAC is 28 miles from my house!!!! I went out there yesterday, talk about a kid in a candy store, and had a blast. The girl at the desk was so sweet and honored the 15% off that they offer on the website. From my bag of goodies, I've only tried the 40% Lactic acid peel and my skin is smooth and clear. After I rinsed, I could literally see blackheads hanging out. I plan to use it again this morning. I love MUAC!!!

I really like the feel of my skin after I use this, the feeling lasts for such a long time, my face feels so soft and smooth (which I didn't know it wasn't until I used this). It does appear brighter, and my makeup goes on so much better, I've only used it a couple of times, so I will update with more info later.
But I just wanted to say, for those of you who are planning on getting it, you only need to use a little bit of product! After cleansing with the green tea soap and using the pH prep I pour a little bit into the lid of the bottle and use two q-tips and rub it on my face in circular motions, I then re-dip and go over little acne scars. I have used so little of this product and gotten great results.
My face does turn pink, and more so in some areas, and then I get little flakes in those pinker areas the next couple of days, but very minimal, I use Retin-A and maybe I am just used to seeing that.
The green tea soap that's included is so nice, I broke off a piece and use it to remove my makeup and as an overall cleanser, this leaves my face feeling amazingly soft and thoroughly clean.
I don't use the pH solution afterwards, because it burns my face so badly, more so than the peel itself!

Honestly, I didn't even know about this type of product and that you could do it at home until MUA placed a review of it on their main page. I read a bunch of reviews for both this and the glycolic acid peel as well as the MUAC website and decided since I have a few areas of hyperpigmentation to go with the lactic acid peel. I have now applied this twice and I can see a gradual lightening of my spots. I have 3 eraser size marks on my right cheek that have lightening a bit after only two peels. On my left cheek I have quite a few pinpoint size marks that I haven't been able to see any lightening yet but they are already kind of light (med coverage foundation covers them fairly well). I've been using a hydroquinine serum from Palmers as well as the peels. After the peel I like to use a mixture of a few drops of Burts Bees Intensive Repairing Serum and a few drops of Hobe Sweet Almond Oil. It really moisturizes well and prevents dryness.
In some respects I wish I would have bought the 55% peel instead of the 40%. I've been using AHA Souffle which is a 10% glycolic cream and I've tolerated Anew Clinical Peel with no problems in the past. I noticed only the barest amount of stinging and I've used it the full 7 minutes they recommend. It's nice that they sell this in sample sizes. I've used it twice and I haven't even put a dent in the acid. I'll admit I prefer using my Rose Witch Hazel instead of the ph they give you. It smells a lot better. I hate the scent of regular witch hazel.
EDIT: After doing 4 peels I went to a new doctor today who said that my skin looked "fabulous" and that she would have guessed my age at 25 or 26. I'm 38 so that really made my day if you can imagine. There definitely is something in here that works!

I have been using this peel for over 6 months. I dont do it regularly. But I love it. I notice an immediate difference in my skin. In the past, I have paid big bucks for microdermabrasion and spa chemical peels, which have left my skin with the same glow i get from one use of this. When I began using this weekly - 90% of my acne scars faded. I believe it is from two things: a good cleanser and moisturizer, and these peels.
I will be a faithful user as long as the product remains at such a high quality and price remains reasonable. I don't mind the ugly packaging if it saves me $10 a bottle. Highly recommended.
HOW I USE THE 40% LACTIC ACID PEEL
I always do my peels at NIGHT so I can sleep after and dont have to go right into the UVA/UVB rays, which can cause darkening on sensitive skin.
1. I don't exfoliate for 3-days prior. I just wash my face with a basic cleansing soap and water to make sure everything is clean right before I start. If I am having an acneic breakout, I will use a sample 5% BHA Serum to "cut through" - do believe this works. If I have any open scars, I will NOT put the peel on those areas, but work around them or just avoid doing a peel all together.
2. I apply the serum to my fingertips, then gently SPREAD the peel over my face. A very thin layer. I dont rub it in. This makes it go deeper into skin. I dont stretch my face or jaw. That does the same thing.
3. If there are areas that need fading (e.g. acne scars), I will reapply another layer of chemical peel to that spot.
4. I wait. First time was 1 min. Even thought it didnt tingle, I washed it off. Gradually built up.
- If there were areas that tingled more than others, i would dip my hand in water, and neutralize that peel spot by applying the water there. That way I dont stop other parts of my face from the chemical peel, but it slows down the one area that seems to be more sensitive.
- If my skin is turning red and blotchy in some areas, I prepare to stop. For some this is normal, but I dont like it because I hate the possiblity of a burn or down time.
5. Peel time done. First thing I do is splash warm water on my face for about 30 seconds, until my skin feels soothed.
6. Next, I use a home-made stop action spritzer. Baking-Soda will STOP all chemical peel action. So I take a spritzer bottle, fill it 70% with water, then shake in baking soda. I also have added Aloe Vera Juice and 5% Pantethenol spray, which helps to speed healing prevent acne, etc. and adds moisture to the new skin cells coming out.
- I spritz my face like crazy, drenching it with this spray. Then I wait a few seconds.
7. Wash my Face. I use the MUAC Tea Tree Oil cleanser. But I have also used Dessert Essence Tea Tree Oil soap (bar and pump). I just like to use something that lathers, but that is soap-free.
8. Tone. I use the blue toner that comes with the kit. If I run out, I swipe my face with Witch Hazel, or any other toner I have.
9. Moisturize. I use Emu Oil, Argan Oil, Squalene Oil to get the good EFAs back into my skin for the new skin cells that are going to emerge. But I have also used many other moisturizers successfully too: Kinerase, Aubrey Organics Blue Green Algae Moisturizer, Skinceuticals B5 Gel, Oil of Olay, Pond's Classic Moisturizer, Cetaphil moisturizer. Doesnt matter whatever works best, just get the hydration back in and make sure it has rich soothing moisture and not too many extra things that will irritate sensitive skin.
10. Sleep! Skin cells repair during the evening when you get a good nights rest. So after my 15-minute peel, I hop into bed. And I dont have to worry about going out in the sun immediately after.
11. Next morning, I ALWAYS use an SPF 15 or 30, every day, for at least 2 weeks.
LAST - I do this over the course of a few weeks until my skin looks perfect again. I do NOT do a peel every week when my skin looks good. If after a few weeks my skin is looking fabulous, I will STOP and just coast on the good skin vibe. Good cleanser, mositurizer, and gly-luronic will keep this up. Then when it seems that it needs to have a "refresher", I will give my skin another peel session.
The key to maintaining results is letting your skin heal at night with a good moisturizer and using an SPF during the day after any chemical peel.
Hope this helps!
UPDATE 3/11/2013: I still keep this peel in my medicine cabinet and use as needed. I found over time I only needed to do this treatment monthly or every other month, then quarterly. Sometimes I alternate between this and the 25% Mandelic Acid, but I never had any problem staying at the 40% solution. I have now been a faithful user of this exact peel for at least 3 years. My routine is the same as above, only now I use an SPF that is at least SPF 30 instead of SPF 15. Just a personal preference as I get older. But the MUAC 40% Lactic Acid Peel performs exceptionally every time regardless of the other things I change around my routine. Still highly recommended.

I bought this peel mainly to deal with my hyperpigmentation issues. First of all the good stuff: MUAC delivered this very quickly. It's packaged well, and the price is right. Also, the sample size they sell is generous. I got many, many uses out of it. However, after using it faithfully every week for a bit more than 6 weeks, I can't say I notice any kind of difference. The hyperpigmentation has not been reduced. The skin texture is a bit better (smoother), but not any more so then with a well formulated AHA (like Alpha Hydrox Souffle). There has been no reduction of wrinkles. I never burned my skin or feel that my skin has been damaged, but I saw no improvement. I'm glad to hear many people did well with this product, but it's not for me.

One more rave for this. I have extremely dry sensitive skin with rosacea, and now I'm getting fine lines around my eyes (I'm 32). I can't do retinol (ouch), but I was ok with Philosophy Hope in a Jar, which has lactic acid. So I tried this. I've now done 6 peels over three weeks, and my skin feels really really soft. The first time I did 3.5 minutes and it really stung, and I had a few dark scabs that peeled over a few days. The next couple of times it did sting some, but no more scabs. I'm up to 5 minutes now with almost no "symptoms" after, although the pH stuff with witch hazel still burns. When I get to the end of my sample bottle or maybe after a couple months, whichever is first, I'll move up to the 55%.
Also, just want to add a ton of love for this company. I have loved every product I have tried. They're a mail order company with cheap packaging and no marketing, which means that all your money is going to the product. My big fear is that they will go out of business and I'll be back where I was before I found them, or that they'll get bought by Unilever and start selling smelly crap in fancy bottles. Stay sweet MUAC!

I am 38 years old and have melasma and still get the occasional breakout, sometimes with cystic acne. I have been using the 40% Lactic Acid peel for almost 3 weeks, along with the Skin Bleaching Serum, and my skin looks amazing. The texture is nice, the melasma is fading and I haven't had any breakouts. My skin has flaked a little, but that is normal with a peel. The best part is you can do this right at home...no spa appointment needed, and it costs a fraction of what that may cost. This is a great peel.

I have very sensitive skin with hyperpigmentation and mild rosacea. I have been using the 40% Lactic Acid Peel from MUAC for about 2 years. It's never been a miracle product for me but it did refresh my skin and help it look "brighter" without lasting irritation.
Recently my dermatologist started me on Finacea which has worked wonders for my redness. Today I applied this peel (as I have many times before) and this time, it burned my skin! I could tell that the peel felt differently than it had before, as soon as I applied it it began stinging badly. I rinsed off the peel after two minutes.
I now have puffy, swollen, red raised patches across my cheeks and chin which still sting 8 hours post peel. I applied a steroid gel in an attempt to keep the damage to a minimum. I hope that these "patches" go down in a few days and I'm not left with any permanent damage.
Obviously, having used this peel before with success, this is user error. I did not find any warnings for using mild peels combined with Finacea, but for those who are thinking of trying it, be careful!

I used this last year but I'm just reviewing it now. I really had high hopes for this product. I bought it to get rid of some very stubborn brown marks leftover from acne which had persisted for over a year. I am of Indian ethnicity and a lot of products that work on other skin types end up being too harsh for my skin, which is why I avoid products with strong ingredients; so I was definitely wary of the scary sounding "chemical peels." However I used this in desperation because no natural treatments (i had tried Turmeric, Honey, Vitamin E oil, rosehip oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, lemon juice, and many more) were working for the hyperpigmentation. So when I read on the MUAC website that the 40% Lactic Acid peel is relatively mild and safe for ethnic skin I decided to give it a chance. Unfortunately I regretted it. First, it didn't do anything for the hyperpigmentation. I used it about 5 times and for no more than 5 minutes each time, with absolutely no effect on the marks. It didn't burn or sting when I applied it so I left it on each time but after using it multiple times I realized my cheeks had become very dry and devoid of moisture. It felt like they had been stripped of their natural oils. Also there were sort of inflamed and red..similar to the way your cheeks are flushed after a workout or like rosacea. So I was disappointed and stopped using the product after that. Shame, because it was kind of expensive. Hope it works for you though! If you have sensitive skin/ethnic skin please be careful with chemical peels.

LOVE THIS STUFF!! it is my HG for acne treatment and it has clearned up my skin like nothing else has!! I use it once a week and I also use the MUAC micropolish once a week as well.
Then everyday, twice a day, I wash my face with cetaphil, apply a tiny, tiny amount of differn gel,
then I use MUAC Gly-Luronic Acid Serum, and I use MUAC Super Vitamin C and E mixed with Rosehips Hibiscus Scar Cream - 86% Organic .
All these product have done wonders for my acne and acne scars!! I have NEVER EVER found anything better for my skin and I have been on a hunt..I do have before and after pic and look forward to posting them soon!
A good hint for any peel that you get there is to start off slow to see what you skin can tolerate. With the latic acid, I only left it on for 1 min the first time and then increased the time everytime I put it on. Oh and you may break out when you first do the peels. I did, I got two HUGE zits on my face when I first used it, but it was no big deal to me because I am always getting acne, about a week later the zits went away and I SWEAR to you I have not gotten another zit since! My skin looks like I have always wanted it look. I also still have some acne scars, but the vitamin C and E and the rosehips cream have faded them quite a bit, but I can still see them, but hey, I can't ask for miracles

I have very hyperpigmented skin. I have been using this product 1x a week for a few weeks. I haven't noticed any lightening, but I have noticed an overall brightening. A word of caution to those who live in dry climates: I live in Colorado where the climate is extremely dry. I find that this product is extremely drying to my skin. I use a very gentle cleanser (Yonka) and amazing moisturizer (also Yonka) and still find this product to be over-drying. The dryness actually makes my skin look worse.

Have very neglected acne ridden and sun damaged skin and finally seen the light and started treating it. I chose this because I am new to peels and wanted to start small. I have used it 2x over 2 weeks. So far it is pulling everything bad out of my skin-which is awesome but not pretty yet. Please keep in mind I have super congested skin-hard bumps under skin, cystic and regular acne so I am not expecting miracles yet. My skins tone and texture has improved since use and its digging out all the blackheads/whiteheads/icky stuff stuck in my skin. It does give a glow and I have been conservative with time-1 min-2 min 3min and 3 min for time on the peels because its my first one. I didn't use soap free the first time but when I did it definitely made a difference and I could feel the peel working deeper.

okay, so let's see. i used the 40% latic acid peel for around a month or a bit longer. at first the peel was wonderful. my fine lines were disappearing and my skin felt smoother. this was all i noticed during the first like 3/4 sessions. after that, i haven't noticed anything. my skin isn't as smooth as it used to be with this peel. prob. because i'm using other new stuff for my face..if i were you guys, i would get samples of the 40% and 50% then straight to 65%. the samples last a pretty long time btw. i used it twice and i'm amazed at how much peel is left. i used like 10% of the sample bottle on the 50% with 2 applications. the 40% isn't strong enough to notice anything concrete. it's more of a good exfoliator than anything. oh and btw, FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS WORD BY WORD during the first 3 peels. after that, you can use as much as you want for up to 7 minutes. that was my mistake and ended up burning my face the second time. tisk tisk

This is my first peel ever. I ordered Tuesday and it came Friday. I have a lot of acne scarring, active acne (including two cystic pimples) in various stages and a few dry patches. I didn't do a patch test or do soap free cleasing 24hrs in advance. But I did use a soap free cleanser right before tho. The ph prep solution tingled and stung a bit on some of the active acne. I put the acid on with fingertips and immediately felt it working. It was like a prickling, itching, sensation that didn't bother me too much but I could definitely feel it the whole time. Left it on for 3min, washed and ph prep'ed again. Skin is already GLOWING! My scars and acne seem a bit brighter but I'm sure that's just cuz they got the crap kicked outta them and they are mad. My face has a very smooth shiny texture too. Any way had to report that I already like what I see. Hopefully things will only get better. Plan on using again Wed. for 3min.

For the past 3 years I have been getting regular lactic peels at a salon, so once everymonth I spend about $75 dollars and get a peel done. After all the reviews on MUA I decided to give this a go.. although I was'nt covinced... but I thought what the heck. I bought the sample size.... which is a LOT by the way it will last me a good 6 months. Anyhows I left it on for about 5 minutes no stinging and I did'nt notice any immediate effects afterwards. But the next my skin felt great... it works just like the treatments in a salons... I hav'nt noticed any difference btw this and what my salon did... and this is dirt cheap in comparision. Fades acne scars, keeps acne at bay and helps with ageing. excellent product... I would definatley purchase again.
However the Ph solution is going to run out soon... but I guess ladies here have been talking about witch hazel... so i'll give that a go!!
