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.

Really Amazing Stuff

I have really stubborn closed comedones. I’ve been using differen gel for a couple of years but it wasn’t working at all to clear them up. This serum has cleared up at least half of them in just a week. My skin texture looks smoother and healthier. It’s also really good for sensitive skin, I’ve had peeling and dryness but it’s been mild. Would highly recommend for anybody.

Thrilled to tears

I’ve tried everything on the market, and that is no exaggeration. Vivant is the first product line that has shown results in weeks. Not to mention no additional irritation, breakout or redness. I am in love!

Dear LG,

We are so thrilled to learn that you love the 8% Mandelic Acid Serum. So happy that you are getting amazing Results.!!!

The 8% mandelic acid Serum has a larger molecular structure than other AHAs, which allows it to be absorbed more slowly causing less irritation. It is less irritating to the skin, reduces the activity of sebaceous glands, generates new collagen and is an antibacterial.

Thank you so much for giving the product a 5 star review and we hope that you continue enjoying our products.

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.
