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.

Recommended for

1) Sensitive skin type : Less irritation due to low skin permeability.

?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Really good!!!!!
4.5/5 I have very sensitive skin, and acne.
It didn't break me out. yes.
The only thing i didn't like was the itines there was when i first started using it, but after a while it stopped.
I saw results pretty quick, my skin has a more even skintone now, and it doesn't look that dull anymore.
would really recommend!!!!
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Better than others I've tried
4/5 Mandelic Acid is better than others cause it's so mild. I have sensitive skin, and it didn't dry out my skin. I only used it 2-3 times in a week on my troubled area, round my mouth where I have acne. Didn't make much a different for my skin, but if you are interested starting to use acid -based product in your skincare routine, I recommend to this for the start.
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Such an amazing results!
5/5 I love this toner, its the perfect diary amount of exfoliation without harming the skin, its perfect because everyday my skin is really smooth and I see improvements on my skin texture and algo with my acne scars, would repurchase again!
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Real results - no irritation - so much to love here!
5/5 I love mandelic acid - I mean, what’s not to love? It’s a naturally derived AHA made from bitter almonds that improves all skin types from oily and acne prone to sensitive to mature and everything in between. When I realized that Wishtrend was offering a mandelic acid product, I had to try it and I can honestly say that I am seeing a renewed radiance and clarity to my skin. As a regular (daily) exfoliator, I find most AHAs too irritating and drying but this formula is actually moisturizing and quite soothing. By adding ingredients like beta-glucan, B5 and sodium hyaluronate, Wishtrend has created a product that not only exfoliates and preps the skin but also attracts and holds on to moisture which is so important to me. The larger molecular size of mandelic acid makes it gentler than other AHAs but it also packs a more well-rounded punch by addressing hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles and acne, as well as helping to strengthen collagen. Wishtrend has also added centella asiatica extract and licorice root extract to help repair damage and improve overall skin tone. I have also noticed a significant reduction in blackheads and overall skin congestion which makes sense because Mandelic acid is oil soluble so it not only exfoliates the surface of your skin but is able to work deeper down into your pores as well and it helps to regulate sebum production. I have noticed a definite softening of lines and wrinkles, a much more even tone to my skin, smaller pore size, fewer blackheads, lightening of sun spots, and overall brighter, smoother skin. So… I definitely love mandelic acid and I love that Wishtrend has created a product using this amazing ingredient that I can enjoy using every day. I have already ordered a backup!
?? Location : Skin types : Age : Location : Best Gentle AHA ever
5/5 makes the skin smooth, brighten the skin, exfoliate the skin for other skincare products to get absorbed better, gentle, heal the acne scars, makes the pores cleaner and keep the skin clearer. If you have those underground acne, it does bring the acne up to the surface faster. It does sting for a few seconds if you have open wound so do not pick on your acne.

-my skin becomes smoother. The acne and pimples I have become gradually smaller and get rid of the red acne marks faster.

-For combination skin like me, I find it okay to use everyday if you do not use any other strong actives. Also use sunscreen when using this products cause you do not want to undo everything.
