PERFECT FOR: Acne-prone skin

”I’m used to high % AHAs, however I found this one to be just as effective with 5%. This is the first acid toner I have tried that doesn’t dry out my skin after use (hence my title). The only time I feel stinging is if I have an “open wound” from a popped pimple, so make sure you don’t pick your face before using this. Will definitely be using it more frequently once the sun isn’t as intense!”

Gentle exfoliator

IAm am acne prone sensitive oily combination skin with a lot of white heads and comedones on the skin. I bought this hoping that this will be my last and final attempt on buying exfoliator for my sensitive skin. Trust me when I say that I have been a member of beauty Manila since 2016 and I have tried a lot of exfoliators from this website. I've tried cos rx bha, aha, even the pimple tones I forgot the name it made my skin so horrible I used these products three months apart hoping these will solve my cystic acne flare and sensitized skin but nothing worked. October last year I bought skin genie facial scrub but my gosh my acne got worse so I stopped. I was depressed nothing works then this came up on wish trend TV in you tube. I saved money then bought all of klairs and this mandelic acid and vitamin tree water gel OH My Gosh!!! After six weeks of using this mandelic acid once or twice a week with klairs black sugar scrub my scaly sensitized acne prone skin just calmed down. I'm in the process where my comedones, white heads even black heads are slowly diminishing as well as milia. I'm still not free from having white pussed bumps but definitely I haven't had a nodular cystic acne in six weeks. I'm very impressed very happy and satisfied with this mandelic acid.

it was okay

where dear klairs' supple toner is so gentle, this one is the opposite. it has that sting of a typical toner. like if you have an open wound from a pimple or something, it will really sting. i was really having a bad breakout then but this product didnt do much. tho this is for combi skin. its not too bad. perhaps wasnt just for me.

Worth the risk!

I replaced my Cosrx AHA with this one, after learning how mandelic acid is supposed to be more gentle than its other AHA sisters. The verdict? I love this product more than the Cosrx AHA primarily because it does not make my face shine( a sign of overexfoliation) even with daily use. It may be gentle, but I know its working because lately I have been enjoying a break from dull, rough facial skin. For the price point, this deserves my 5 stars!

It stings, so at first, natakot talaga akong gamitin. I really haven't seen any effect on my skin. Feeling ko nga the first time I used it un pa reason nagka big pimple ako the next day. I am hoping umpisa lang na effect as my skin is now getting used to it.

Results in one week

I was reluctant to use this since my skin didn't react well to the CosRX AHA Whitehead Power Liquid. -but I have been dealing with clogged pores for a long time already, so I thought to give this a try (since mandelic acid is a gentler form of AHA). I've used this for only 4-5 times, but I've seen results already! My clogged pores have shrunk without any irritation or whatever. I'm excited to see more results from this, given that it has lots of other great ingredients like licorice and centella asiatica.

Gentle and effective.

It can be quite drying with one application - face will feel tight as it dries, but that can be compensated with the next steps in the routine and it does the job against whiteheads for me. It's the only new thing I added into my routine, so I'm still patch-testing, but after two weeks (used it once a week), my skin texture is back to normal. No more bumps. Soft skin. It surprisingly does the job better than previous AHAs I've tried. Would recommend this for sensitive skin.
