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 absorption.  

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

Method: Apply in an even layer over entire area (no spot treatment). Allow to dry before applying any additional products. 

Pro tips: 

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

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


Additional notes: Best for skin already acclimated to 8% Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Serum.

Finally something that works

After dealing with acne my whole life and trying all the products out there, I came across a Vivant ad and decided to check out the website. I decided to give it a try even though it was rather expensive but I am so happy I did. My skin had continually gotten better and while I still get breakouts, they heal faster and are not as bad. My skin is so much calmer overall. I switched to the mandelic acid products when I got pregnant. I love Vivant and will continue to spend the money to have clear skin.

Amount of Mandelic Acid

Hi,
Is there a recommended amount of the 15% Mandelic Acid Serum to be used? I noticed a specific amount of drops to use have not been stated on the box or bottle.

Dear Luann,

Thank you for contacting us and leaving a review about our product.

The 15% Mandelic Serum comes with a dropper. Once you squeeze the dropper, it will be filled half way. That amount should be enough to cover the whole face, excluding the eye area.

Hope this helps!
