Nutrient-rich, highly effective and refreshing Vitamin C Exfoliating Treatment for dermatologist-level brightening and renewal at home. A concentrated 2-day skin reset formulated with professional actives like Lactic, Mandelic and Salicylic Acids that effectively exfoliate and renew the skin to its Bright & Healthy best, without traditional irritation.

Vitamin C Exfoliating Treatment is unique because it takes a healthy, balanced, complete approach to exfoliation! Many exfoliators contain physically abrasive ingredients that stress or damage the skin barrier, depleting it of antioxidants. However, MD Complete eliminated that gritty material and added:

  • Vitamins C & B to brighten and restore
  • Amino acids to nourish skin
  • Green Tea for skin brightening
  • Bilberry extract with rich antioxidants
  • Aloe to soothe and restore stressed skin
  • Orange & Lemon Extracts for bright renewal

It is designed for those looking to brighten and refine their complexion, or diminish the signs of aging. In most skin types, you will simply feel a warming sensation as Vitamin C Exfoliating Treatment goes to work in your skin. May not be suitable for very sensitive skin.

Use twice a month for two consecutive days to rejuvenate the skin and reveal a radiant, smooth complexion. The natural fragrance is a light, fresh citrus with notes of pink grapefruit and lemon. 30-60 day supply!


  • Brightens skin tone
  • Boosts natural radiance
  • Refines and smooths skin texture
  • Reduces the appearance of post-acne marks
  • Boosts the results of any skincare regimen

With consistent use, it also improves the appearance of:

  • Fine lines
  • Plumpness
  • Firmness
Key Ingredients

Vitamin C refines skin texture to brighten and even skin tone while smoothing the look of fine lines. MD Complete uses a more advanced and bioavailable form of Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, TA-C), which is more potent and absorbs far better than traditional ascorbic acid.

Lactic Acid is a natural ingredient from fermented milk. It’s unique in the AHA family due to its ability to be a highly rejuvenating exfoliant at relatively high pH levels (suitable for use outside of a dermatologist’s office), without causing notable irritation or downtime. Another unique characteristic is Lactic Acid’s ability to actually increase the skin’s retention of moisture.

Mandelic Acid is derived from bitter almond. As one of the largest AHAs, Mandelic Acid penetrates the epidermis more slowly and uniformly. This makes it less irritating than common AHAs like glycolic acid. In dermatology studies, Mandelic Acid has been shown highly effective in improving uneven skin tone.

Salicylic Acid is considered a beta-hydroxy-acid. Unlike AHAs that break down protein bonds, Salicylic Acid breaks down lipid (fat) bonds. That makes it ideally suited to unclog and reduce the appearance of pores. It is also gentler on skin than traditional glycolic acid. Salicylic Acid also provides surprising improvements in skin tone and texture.

l-Arginine effectively helps accelerate skin healing time.

Hyaluronic Acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) hydrates and supports skin, providing modest plumping and firming benefits.

Niacinamide (Vitamin B-3) helps even skin tone and improves your skin's ability to retain moisture.

Panthenol (Vitamin B-5) attracts and retains moisture, helping to reduce water lost through the skin and improve skin suppleness.

Aloe helps soothe and naturally hydrate.

Green Tea provides antioxidant, skin nourishing and skin-brightening benefits.

Bilberry from Scandinavia delivers potent antioxidants and helps brighten.

Orange and Lemon Extracts provide natural sources of Vitamin C, as well as brightening and exfoliating benefits. 

How to Use

Apply two days in a row every other week.

Tips for Success
On days you exfoliate, take a break from the rest of your skincare regimen and:

  1. Remove any makeup and pat your face dry
  2. Massage a thick layer of product into your skin for 1-2 minutes, or use a spinning brush to apply the treatment—both methods help improve penetration and provide a soothing skin massage
  3. Rinse off after 5 minutes if you feel too much heat or 8 minutes if you don’t feel any significant heat, then gradually increase leave-on time with each application up to 12 minutes, if you don’t experience significant discomfort
  4. Apply to the hands, neck and décolleté, for expanded brightening

For Sensitive Skin
During your first treatment, rinse off after just two minutes. Gradually increase the leave-on time (1-2 minutes per application) as your skin becomes acclimated to the product, as long as you don’t experience significant discomfort.

For Dry Skin
Use a nutrient-rich serum, like Retinol Vitamin C Concentrate, after exfoliating to nourish your skin, lightly hydrate and boost your results.

Sun Warning
Exfoliating treatments leave skin more sensitive to sun exposure. It is especially important to prevent sun damage by applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30-50 each morning. Reapply throughout the day, as needed. 

As with all skincare products, we recommend anyone pregnant or breastfeeding contacts a doctor before usage. Avoid contact with eyes.

Another awesome product!

This is one of my (many) favorite products by MDComplete and I look forward to using it every two weeks! My skin feels and looks smoother, healthier, and can barely see any pores, even in a magnifying mirror! :)

Love this!

I got this to use for the skin reset and with only two uses I’ve allready noticed an overall improvement in the tone and texture of my skin. LOVE the whole product line!!

Love this exfoliant!

I just did my 2-day routine and my skin looks and feels so good! I use their Acne Kit daily and use this twice a month. I love to apply Quench & Restore and my retinol/vitamin C serum right after (either the Healthy Complexion Booster or their Retinol Vit C Concentrate). It gives my skin a beautiful, smooth, hydrated glow that looks and feels so amazing!

Exfoliating Treatment

I have used it a total of 4 times since my purchase. I noticed the morning of my first night of use my skin had a polish healthy look to it.
I’m hoping for more positive results as I keep using this product!
My fourth time I kept the product on for 20 minutes. I am happy to report that I did not experience any sensitivity to the product.

Easy to use

Just wait 10 minutes and rinse it. Feel good after using it. Did not get any sensitivity.


I really like it. I used it the first recommended times and hope I can get a second round .
My face had a very nice tone after first use.
