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
BETTER THAN THE PIXI GLOW TONIC

”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!”

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!about 1 month ago
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.5 months ago
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.6 months ago
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.6 months ago
