Staff reviews

Skin Type | Sensitive & Combination Using Tips & Routine | Cleanse > Cotton Pad + Mandelic Water > Toner > Moisturizer "I felt an adequate amount of hydration being delivered to my skin, which in turn smoothed my skin. There was no harsh irritation even with continuous use over a span of a few days, so I was able to use it comfortably. " - Alexa S.

Skin Type | Combination & Oily (T-zone) Using Tips & Routine | Cleanse > Blue Drop > Cotton Pad + Mandelic Water > Toner > Soothing Cream "I don’t personally exfoliate regularly, so the fact that I could easily exfoliate after cleansing as a part of my skincare routine really appealed to me. The day after using it, I was able to see improvement in skin texture and tone. When following this routine (After letting absorb fully Blue Drop and used Mandelic Water), my skin visibly glowed the next morning." - Kate J.

Skin Type | Dry & Sensitive Using Tips & Routine | Cleanse > Cotton Pad + Mandelic Water > Toner > Soothing Cream + Blue Cream "While I only exfoliate 1-2 times every two weeks due to my sensitive skin, I purposefully used the Mandelic Water 3 times during the evenings, within a span of a week. I felt no irritation, apart from on areas with scars, and felt the areas around my nose and between my eyebrows become smoother after one week of use. My skin tone also became more clean & clear overall. I used it 3 times a week (every other day) during the evenings after cleansing, using a cotton pad to wipe the skin. " - Karen H.

Key ingredient

Mandelic acid As one of the AHA ingredients, it has a large molecular size which causes very little irritation to the skin. It helps to improve pigmentation as well as to restore aged skin. It also has antibacterial properties that are effective for inflammatory acne.

Beta-Glucan Moisturizing, redness reduction, anti-inflammatory and soothing effects.

Panthenol Also known as vitamin B5, it acts as a humectant and moisturizer, improving the skin’s abilities to regenerate and to maintain hydration. It is also used to prevent inflammation and to prevent itching.

Centella Asiatica Extract Helps regenerate damaged skin.

Sodium Hyaluronate As a natural moisturizing factor, it attracts moisture and helps retain moisture within the skin, preventing dryness after exfoliation.

?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Better than the Pixi Glow Tonic
5/5 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!
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Very gentle exfoliator
5/5 I wasn't sure if this product is going to work on my face before I've tried stronger acids and definitely this Mandelic Acid is a very gentle product. I feel like it helps me with my acne a lot - all the new pimples are disappearing quicker and my skin is softer than before. I can't say if it works on dark spots but it brightens my skin - now it looks fresh and not as dull as before. I have no allergic reactions to this product, I don't see any irritation too even if I use it 3-4 times per week.

5/5 I have to say this product is pretty amazing after using it for some time. I have very sensitive, acne prone, combination/dry skin and it is very difficult for me to try new products. However after reading about how many skin care benefits there were with Mandelic Acid, I had to try this product. First night I used it, I actually felt a slight stinging sensation on my face and I was worried of what the outcomes might be. When I say stinging sensation, it is kind of like the feeling you get when you first try vitamin c products so don't be alarmed and like I said, I have very sensitive skin so not everyone will get the same sensation. The next day, I didn't see much difference and became a little skeptical but I was glad that I didn't get any new acne from the product. I used the product every night after cleansing and right before my toner and I was amazed by the results after about 2 weeks of use. My dark spots from my acne scars were lightened and I felt that my overall complexion was much brighter. I had people around me say if I was using highlighter because of the inner glow that this product gave me. I have to say that all this was from Wishtrend's Mandelic Acid Prep Water since it was the only addition to my Skin Care. I'm loving this product so far and I use it with my Klairs toner, red serum from Skin Lab and Klairs blue cream mixed with Klairs Moist Soothing Cream as my night time routine. Has been working great! Highly recommend to give it a try and allow some time for it to works its magic!
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Gentle exfoliant that doesn't irritate sensitive skin
4/5 I don't use chemical exfoliants often, because my skin is quite sensitive to stronger AHAs such as glycolic acid. So when I heard that this was a much gentler version of glyoclic acid I was excited to be able to try it. It did sting my skin a bit upon application, but it left my skin smooth the next morning. I only use this 2-3 times/week. It also helped reduce the redness I had on my acne.
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Excellent for smoothing skin!
5/5 I've tried this for a few weeks now and I'm really happy with it! The 1st week I used it I noticed a slight stinging sensation when I applied it - however my skin didn't appear red or irritated which was strange. But I did notice how my pores looked less visible right away. It looked like someone smoothed over my entire skin. After the 2nd week of use the stinging sensation went away. I don't have acne prone skin but I've noticed my pores getting more as I entered my 30s, so I really love it for this purpose :)
