Instantly makes skin brighter, flawless and more youthful-looking helping you to achieve multiple skincare goals quickly.
With a plethora of chemical peels, facial exfoliants and skin brighteners on the market, you have to pray to the skincare gods hoping for results you'll actually notice.
However, with our Lactic Brightening Treatment, your prayers are answered the moment you allow your skin to drink in this transformative treatment.
Not all lactic peel solutions are created equal, and neither is the skin. Each person’s skin, much like a fingerprint, is unique to that person. Finding the right peel solution that won’t traumatize your unique skin “print” is important for achieving optimal, lasting results.
Lactic acid is one of the most transformative peel solutions I use because it plays well with most skin types and offers many benefits.
Gently exfoliates skin for a clearer, healthier looking complexion so you look radiant
Brightens pigmentation, melasma and sun damaged skin giving you the confidence to wear less makeup
Instantly tightens the skin for a poreless, luminous glow so you can rock a selfie without a filter
Discourages breakouts, oil and congestion so you feel clean and clear
Attracts water to the skin, helping to plump fine lines so you don't feel dry
Allows other products to penetrate deeper into the skin so you get more bang for your buck with even affordable products
The Lactic Brightening Treatment makes your complexion brighter, tighter and healthier looking over time. Many clients use it as a weekly refresher, a chemical peel prep, or simply to slay a selfie without using a bogus filter. This is one powerful yet gentle product designed to instantly illuminate your assets!
Remember, less is more. The more product you use, the more dryness and exfoliation will occur. At first, it's best to use only once or twice a week until you build up a tolerance. No more than 3 times a week is recommended if you're using other exfoliating agents or acne products, as excess irritation may occur.
Dispense 6 to 10 drops onto flat cotton and apply one pass to your face much like a toner.
Allow first pass to absorb.
Then dispense a few more drops of Lactic onto cotton and lightly buff solution into your skin back and forth concentrating on areas in need of more exfoliation or brightening.
Allow product to absorb for 3-10 minutes depending on tolerance. Rinse anytime if you're unable to tolerate the tingling sensation.
If you feel more advanced, leave on skin for up to 10 mins then apply our Beauty Elixir, 12% Vitalizing Vitamin C Serum, or apply your fav product.
Who it’s for:
All skin types except those who are extremely sensitive or sensitive to AHA acids. Great for weekly exfoliation to improve clarity, discoloration, texture and overall brightness. May be used as a home facial exfoliant, light chemical peel, chemical peel prep or toner to help instantly tighten and brighten skin before a hot date or night on the town with the girls.
What's in it:
Purified Water, 10% Concentrated Lactic Acid.
What to know and expect:
Skin may become a little red, itchy, dry, flaky or peeling. Mild acne bumps or purging can occur on certain skin types that have hidden congestion below the surface of the skin. Please understand that certain active agents with AHA, such as this product, can also cause acne flare ups when no acne is currently present.
SPF 30 or above be worn daily during use, as this product increases sun sensitivity.
Seriously took dulled skin away

I had used this last summer and loved it. Then I received a delux sample of Sunday Riley lactic acid treatment. After using that I saw no results. So, I ordered my beloved lactic acid from Montarbo. Using a 3x3 silken gauze I use this 3-4x a week after cleansing. It doesn’t sting but just tingles a little. It immediately tightens my pores, softens the texture of my skin and makes me look brighter. Long term, 2-3 months use over the summer when my melasma acts up( no matter sunscreens and avoidance of sun) this has faded my brown and prevented more from showing. That is invaluable! There is no odor and since I only use 6 drops at a time so it will last forever.

Love the product. I use it for occasional breakouts. Got referred by a youtuber. I'm a bodybuilder and take lots of protein which causes me to breakout but with this miracle water they fade away within hours. Thank you very much Montarbo!
I love the tingle!

This product is amazing! I've been using it in the evenings, about 3-4 nights per week for the last few months. It definitely tingles after application, which I love! I like knowing that it's really working. I don't wash it off after application. I use this after cleansing, like a toner, before applying my products. I have been so thrilled with all of Cody's products and this is no exception. This has got to be one of my favorite products that I have ever used!

I have used this treatment a few times, and notice a difference every time I use it! It does tingle a bit, but that is how I can tell it is working! It leaves my skin feeling soft and looking like I had a facial. Combined with with Cody's precision brightening cream and his Vit C Elixir, my melasma has lightened so much in less than 2 months!

Whoa this is a serous Treatment! It burns but not so bad I can’t take it. I’ve had bumps around my chin and jaw forever it seems, products make them better temporarily, but this treatment within a few days made them disappear! It’s been 3 weeks and they haven’t came back!

I have been using this twice a week since purchase. My face is so much more firm, brighter, less lines. I have dry skin and this does not dry it out more...it glows. Love it!!
It is the best!!

I have been using this treatment for a little over a month now. I use it about twice a week. I try not to overdo it, as I do not wish to have my skin flake off for an entire week straight. However I have noticed a HUGE improvement in the texture of my skin. My pores appear smaller, and my melasma has lightened significantly. My skin screams radiance and people keep commenting and complimenting about how smooth and youthful my skin looks!!! I notice that the more I use this, the more my face appears to be “kissed by the sun”, as it does give my face a mildly red appearance, but it only lasts but a day or two after I use the product. * I happen to like this look because I hate looking pale! I have been staying out of the sun since I started using this product, as recommended. My skin mildly “purged” some pimples, but it wasn’t anything crazy, and hardly noticeable. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!! You can trust that it will improve your skin greatly.
This is good stuff!

I had a facial last week, and my esthetician (not Cody- and only because he isn't accepting new clients right now) told me that my skin looked "really really good," and was very hydrated and looked bright. I give the credit to this product along with the Illuminating Lift Cleanser. I introduced both products at the same time, and can see the results. My esthetician is seeing the results too- which says a lot. There aren't a bunch of filler/unnecessary ingredients in here, so it's potent. You only need to use a little bit. I use this lactic acid treatment every day - sometimes twice a day, and do not rinse. I've been using it for about a month, and even though I have been using a variety of acids of my face for years, I still get a little tingle which dissipates within a few seconds. If you're newer to using acids, or very sensitive, you should probably ease into this product, but this has been a game changer for me and I high recommend!

This product is wonderful. Nothing like I have ever used before. It does get your attention. It tingles. But it’s such a good feeling it’s like you automatically know it’s doing something great for your skin. Love these products.
