Glycolic and lactic acid are the most abundant acids in cosmetic products. Both belong to the group of AHA acids and are found in tonics, creams and masks. Glycolic acid can be used by any skin type and in the right ratio (5 – 10%) it has a gentle effect on the skin. It is an exfoliator, ie it removes dead skin cells, stimulates the formation of new ones and thus acts to reduce hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, cleans pores and whitens and revives tired and gray complexion. Lactic acid also belongs to the group of AHA acids, and due to its higher molecular weight than glycolic acid, it does not penetrate deep into the skin, but has a superficial effect. It is therefore gentler on the skin than glycolic acid and is recommended for dry and sensitive skin.

The mask is extremely gentle and did not cause me any irritation during application or after removal. It has a creamy and thick texture, spreads lightly and leaves on the skin of the face and neck for 10 minutes and then removes. It washes off easily, leaving the skin soft and shiny.
