CLAIM TO FAME: A non-irritating and hydrating exfoliant that can be used daily

FAST FACTS: Formulated with gentle mandelic acid, which can be used even on sensitive skin; works as a mild exfoliator that improves skin tone and texture; also helps boost the effectiveness of other products; minimizes pigmentation for a smoother, softer look; moisturizes as it soothes to reduce redness and irritation with beta glucan and sodium hyaluronate; improves skin regeneration properties to maintain hydration with panthenol; helps regenerate damaged skin with centella asiatica

PERFECT FOR: Acne-prone skin

August 14, 2017
”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!”
–Michelle C** (from wishtrend.com)

Kind of disappointed

This is another acid that disappoint me 😔😔. After using COSRX AHA which I'm not hiyang, it does nothing to my skin so I'm on the hunt for a good acid that will answer my skin concern which is texture. The first 2 weeks were purging and 3 cystic acne occurs and now its almost gone, the dark spots though has already lighten but it really took a month to see the result. I was really hoping that this toner will help me get rid of those stubborn whiteheads on my nose and around cheek area but after using it for over a month I havn't seen any noticeable result😔😔. Lucky for the others that they were hiyang for this toner. So therefore my hunt for my HG acid is still on going..

A Potent AHA Toner

After finishing a whole bottle of this, safe to say, this toner doesn't joke around. Despite having tried AHA and BHA products in the past and working my skin up to the higher percentage of acid, I still got some purging for around two to three weeks. Needless to say I had to stop using my other acids in order for my skin to not have a freak out. I'd suggest trying out and researching about acids before jumping into this one as your first. Although it did help me clear out some acne, had to stop using for a while as it made me too dry.

I am new to using acids in my skincare routine and this containing mandelic acid which is not that strong helped me in introducing AHA to my routine. I don't use this all the time so I haven't seen anything that I like about it but I guess that if I continue using this I might see what it brings to my skin. But all in all this is good for beginners and is quite moisturizing

Your Acne-Prone Skin Will Thank You

This has a water consistency and it absorbs easily though it leaves a slightly tacky residue, it doesn't disrupt the products layered on top of it. I was already seeing that it was starting to clear out my blemishes which was faster than I expected. I have been using this for a month now and it claims to improve skin texture and boost the effectiveness of other products, which noticeably, it did; Improve pigmentation, not something I'd rely on for my old pigmentation but I haven't had any new ones since using this. This is my favorite chemical exfoliant yet; I'd also say that it's safe to use everyday though I find you don't really need to. ❗ Mandelic Acid is extracted from bitter almonds; So I don't recommend this for those with nut allergies. I already have three bottles of this stashed, that's how much I loved it!

Sooo good yet so mild!

I was initially scared to try this, because I'm not really a fan of "acids" for face, but earlier this month, my skin has started to develop small bumps, dead skin cells, and some pimples. I knew that my skin is looking for an exfoliant, but since my skin type is sensitive, I can't use scrubs. So I finally tried this product, and I'm very glad that it didn't caused me any irritation! My bumps have flattened up a bit, even though I've only used this once. I have a feeling that they will completely go away upon regular use :D
