You can find the recipe on this thread. That thread explains everything you need to know. You can buy your LA from here. And the lotion you want to use from the Body Shop would just work fine. :thumbsup:

thanks, im kinda second guessing now, would it just be easier to apply the la then moisturize isnt that pretty much the same thing but without dealing w/o all the mixing and measuring and extra stuff?

I do not think that is a smart idea. Usually the stock lactic acid people are using to mix their lotion with is close to 90% concentration.....not a good idea to be putting that directly on the skin as you could burn yourself. LA lotion does not take a lot of effort to make. There should be a simple formula for making it in the thread Gymrat posted above.
