I have used this product from Philosophy. Lactic acid is good for your skin and the product works great. It does a fantastic job of exfoliating too.
My skin gets dull easily, and as such does best when it gets regular exfoliation. Hello, lactic acid! Lactic acid is a common ingredient in chemical exfoliators, and works as the main exfoliating agent in this cleanser/mask duo.
The effect is subtle when used as a mask, almost too subtle for me, but would be a great option for those with sensitive skin. This shines brightest when used as cleanser though. Over continued use, I found my skin did look brighter, more even and felt smoother. The cleanser is very gentle, and doesn't really lather- it's free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates- but cleanses skin thoroughly without leaving it dry or stripped.
