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.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding safe

I appreciate that this is one of very few pregnancy and breastfeeding safe products on the market that visibly help your skin. There are some ingredients that I’m not thrilled about, but generally this has been a great substitute for off-limit products, such as those containing retinol. Price point is high and inaccessible for many, though.

Yes, the 8% mandelic Acid serum is a Pregnancy and Breastfeeding safe product. It targets acne, aging, irregular skin pigmentation. It is a serum that is safe for all skin tones.
