Brightening face mask with clean ingredients you can trust

Exfoliating mask for sensitive skin gently and effectively boosts radiance

Instead of harsh acids that can be too intense for moms’ skin, we use 10% lactic acid and 2% malic acid—two gentle but effective alpha hydroxy acids in perfect balance—to exfoliate without stripping moisture, while evening out skin tone and texture.


Brightening Mask calms, hydrates, and smooths

Hyaluronic acid acts as a moisture magnet, helping to plump and smooth skin, while antioxidant-rich shea butter adds a comforting layer of hydration.

10% Lactic acid + 2% Malic Acid Treatment, Woman 2

Lactic acid, superstar

What is lactic acid-and what does it do for skin, anyway? We're so glad you asked! Lactic acid is a brilliant multi-tasker. When lactic acid loosens dead cells on the surface of the skin, it increases cell turnover. It's a superstar at keeping pores clean and reducing the appearance of fine lines and discoloration, but did you know that lactic acid is also the only AHA that moisturizes skin?

Great product!

I loved using this product - it left my skin glowing and so soft

It calms my angry skin

I have a mix type of skin that is acne prone. This mask calms down my red angry pimples. I wake up with a more leveled color and no pain on pimples. I tend to use it every other day to avoid redness as well. I try to hydrate the next night to recover my face too cuz it is pretty strong.

Not for my sensitive skin

Not for sensitive skin. It separated in bottle and had a strange order. The actual product was way too harsh for me. Causing burning and purging. I ended up using it on my feet.

All of our products are formulated to the highest standards of safety and are thoroughly tested, though we know everyone's skin is different and can experience different results. Please feel free to reach out to our customer care team at with further questions.

No irritation and noticeable results

I love how my skin feels instantly smoother and softer in the morning. This is a great option for those with sensitive skin that want to exfoliate without the irritation.

Love this stuff!

I love this! Normally, I have a lot of trouble finding exfoliating masks that are both gentle and feel nice, but still have enough acid to pack a punch. This does both. I can see why it has won awards, and I'm so glad I stumbled across while looking for eczema products. I also really appreciate the addition of malic acid. Malic and lactic acid both really agree with my skin, but you almost never find exfoliants with malic acid in them. This one has both together! I also think any skin type could benefit from using this. As I'm oily, but sometimes experience surface dryness and sensitivity due to meds I use for my skin. This works in both scenarios. Super under-hyped product, in my opinion.
