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.

Wish There Was A Level III

I’ve been using Vivant’s Mandelic Acid products for a few years to assist with adult acne and it’s literally changed my skin. I’ll never stop using the exfoliating wash, but I wish there was a higher percentage serum. My skin is definitely better, but I still experience hyperpigmentation and acne on my cheeks and along my chin. There’s got to be some magic product out there to get my skin back to completely clear! Just not sure it’s the 15% serum.

Patience

A must have in my skin routine. As with any product you must be patient and persistent. I can not go without this product it has helped my adult acne and discoloration immensely. Results are not immediate but you have to be patience and consistent. I Have tried many products and nothing works better!

I'm a 30 year old male who is not new to skincare, in fact I've been great at keeping my skin clear and spotless.

I have a thick full beard, which I manicure weekly. The shaving isn't easy on my skin, but I take great care to make sure it's well taken care of. But in the last year, I've been breaking out on my cheeks and it takes way too long to get rid of the spot after it heals.

I knew I needed to do something, to find a brand that would work for my minor issues. Yet, I wanted a real regimen where all of the products work together instead of being a mish-mash of brands from Sephora. I found Vivant on dermstore,com, but decided to buy the Booster Kit with all the products I needed directly from the site. You really do need the cleanser and toner, they are the only products of their kind that actually work. Them on their own would work wonders, honestly. Add the mandelic serum, the spin trap serum, and the soft algae mask and a good SPF and you're set! I do have little breakouts now that my pores are purging, but the tightness, clarity, and overall glow is INSANE! I can't believe how my skin has changed in two weeks, by month 2 I know I will have amazing results. I'm really a believer in the power of mandelic acid, the investment was worth it thus far.

Game Changer

I started with the 8% and immediately noticed a change in the texture and tone of my skin. I worked my way to the 15% and my skin is on a whole new level. This is by far my “must have” product in my regime. I recommend it to all of my friends!

Love the texture and the results - one of the best serums ever. I use it along with the Mandelic aid toner and got rid of all my sun-caused pigmentation and minor wrinkles;
