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.

4/5 I bought two bottles since november and I've been using this exfoliator each single day since then, to see if I find an improvement.

-Leaves the skin smooth with glass skin effect
-Does not cause irritation in sensitive skin (I'm a pale person with the most sensitive skin and I didn't get red spots from using it, not as other products I have used)

-Didn't help with my pigmentation at all. 0%
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : HIGHLY EFFECTIVE EVEN FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
5/5 I've only used it twice since I got it and I can really see the difference! My closed comedones have significantly reduced in size and number. It's not as bumpy anymore on the areas where I have cc's so I'm planning on using it every other day from now on to see better results. I usually have sensitive skin but this product didn't irritate my skin at all, considering it's an acid and I feel like I would be able to use this every other day.
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : The best exfoliator ever!
5/5 I could rave and rave about this. I have combo acne prone skin and this is a product that if someone tried to take away from me id attack them. I love it so so so so much! I use it and wait 20 minutes before I use anything else, and by that, I notice an immediate difference. My skin is sooo soft and so hydrated it looks like I just did the 7 skin method with only 1 layer. The next morning have the glowest skin ever. I use 3 times a week in night routine and I find this enough. This still really mild and doesn't make my skin flare up. This is the best exfoliator ever, and it really helps with acne and the scarring too, even with the little bumps you get after you have an acne mark, as soon as you use this it will almost to completely disappear. Everyone needs to try this, this is my new holy grail item.
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Improved my skin texture
5/5 I have been using this product for quite some time now (over a month), and it has truly improved my skin texture over such short notice. I had many whiteheads on my left cheek including some hormonal spots, but after 1 week of usage, I noticed that a lot had disappeared. Furthermore, I also noticed that it made my skin brighter.
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : The next Toner I would use other than Klairs Toner!
4.5/5 This toner helps to even out and smoothen the surface of my skin! I have really sensitive skin and have tried many different products from so many brands that caused breakouts within the first use, but this one did not cause any problems after a week. Really glad to have been given a chance to try this item! :)
