Archelle Taylor: Maskne, Mandelic Acid, and More

Archelle Taylor is a glowing example of skincare done right. Her gorgeous complexion didn’t come without some effort, and the pandemic has brought new challenges. 


“Working as a teacher during a pandemic, I wear a mask all day. Mandelic Acid 3-In-1 Exfoliating Cleanser helps prevent maskne.”


Archelle teaches high school biology and loves reading books on crime, so it’s no surprise that she wanted evidence-based ingredients in her skincare.


“I heard about Vivant buy following [dermatologist and nutrition blogger Dr. Tanasha Simela] @drgoodfood on Instagram. She is also featured on Vivant’s blog. She posted results of real patients after using the products. I gave Vivant a try because they included results for African-American skin on their website. This speaks to Vivant’s products as a whole.”


In looking for a regimen to keep her skin clear and reduce hyperpigmentation, it was important to Archelle to find products tailored for her skin’s unique needs.


“Vivant doesn’t seek to market products as ‘one size fits all.’ They emphasize the science and clinically-proven results of their products. Vivant shows representation among various ethnicities. I can’t help but to admire the authenticity that many other skincare companies lack.”


The mandelic acid products in Vivant’s line, designed to gently retexture, bring a brighter, more even tone, and prevent excess pigment, were a perfect match to combat acne in Archelle’s hyperpigmentation-prone skin.


“I started seeing changes/results in my skin at two weeks. Trust the peeling and dry itching stage of using this product. It will pass! I saw maximum results at three months. My texture and hyperpigmentation improved drastically.”


“My favorite product is the Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser. It removes all dirt and skin debris. It gives me a glow as if I got a mini superficial chemical peel. It’s my favorite Vivant product because it’s so versatile. I not only use it on my face, but also use it on my back. There have been times in the past when I wanted to try other products for the fun of it, and I did. When I steered away from this product, my skin would instantly notice it’s not being treated the same. It’s like my skin felt it was being cheated on. My skin instantly felt regret. I’m forever grateful I found this product!”
