What To Expect

What You’ll See

Firmer, brighter, more even skin tone and texture. Gentle exfoliation reduces the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, and acne impactions. 

What You’ll Feel 

Micro-exfoliation is normal. If excessive drying occurs, skip a few days and restart every other day.

What You Should Know

Anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, brightening, gently exfoliating Mandelic Acid will not trigger hyperpigmentation. Excellent alternative to glycolic acid for sensitive or dark skin tones.

How To Use

Regimen Step: Three

Use following cleansing and toning steps, when skin is primed for optimum product penetration.  

Frequency: Up to twice daily - AM and/or PM. Start usage every other day and build to daily use.

Method: Start usage every other day for two weeks by applying over the entire area (no spot treating). After two weeks, apply daily. Mild irritation is normal. If this occurs, skip a few days and restart every other day.

Pro tips: 

Apply Pure C + E after the Mandelic Acid serum has dried for added brightening and photoprotective effects.

May be used on face, neck, chest, and back.

Absolutley AMAZING

I am 45 and a skin care junkie, I have NEVER written a review in my life. With age and changing hormones I developed a pretty bad case of adult acne. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get my skin to clear. I haven’t had a pimple since I was 15 and just didn’t know what do to. Within ONE week of using this, my skin cleared up. This product is legit and if you struggle with acne I can’t recommend it enough!

Dear A.M.,

Thank you for the wonderful review of Vivant's 8% Mandelic Acid 3-IN-1 Serum. This synergistic, water-based formula targets acne, irregular pigmentation and is also perfectly suited for an ageless regimen. It is safe for all skin tones and is supremely effective in killing acne bacteria, brightening skin, reducing the activity of sebaceous glands while promoting collagen production without triggering the harsh irritation or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation associated with other AHAs.

We are thrilled that you are enjoying this product!

Have a wonderful day,

The Vivant Team

Worked for me

I was a bit scared of how it would react with my rosacea and extremely dry skin, but it only stung the first time. There was very little sensation the second time, and thereafter it caused no sensitivity at all. I apply it alternately and have observed a change in my skin texture. It feels great compared to other exfoliants that damage my skin barrier. I totally recommend it.

Thank you for your fantastic review of Vivant's 8% Mandelic Acid Serum.

Vivant 8% mandelic acid serum

I truly will say I never review products and hardly ever say something works for me- I own a medical spa and have a world of products at my finger tips. I have never experienced a product that gave me results so quickly the way this serum did. I am BLOWN AWAY at how I have no had 1 breakout in weeks since I started this product, as well as how much my PIH has lightened up. I couldn’t be happier. Once I’m done with this serum I’ll be moving to the 15%. If you’re acetic, or suffer with PIH order two haha

Dear Danielle,

So I had an order that got lost in the mail, and the company was good enough to send me a replacement order at no cost, then both came on the same day. Because I love these products so much, I said I would keep the extra and pay for it. They would have taken it back too, but hey I am going to use it anyway!

Dear Chris,

Thank you so much for your fantastic review of Vivant Skin Care. We are so happy that you did receive your first order and the replacement order too! We hope you will enjoy all your products and look forward to learning more about your experiences with Vivant Skin Care.

Have a fantastic day!
