    Bought the smaller bottle to give it a try. First of all I have a problematic skin for that I always get scared to put something new n my face but after seeing so many positive reviews about this I finally decided to give it a try and after using for 3 weeks (thrice in a week) I can definitely see some results and so far I’m impressed with the result. Gonna purchase the bigger one.

    Skin type: Combination. As a beginner to chemical exfoliation, I opted for the smaller bottle. I used it on alternate days. I was suffering from small breakouts on my forehead because of a new sunscreen which I tried out. I religiously used it along with cos rx snail cream and yes I could see result within a week. The breakouts completely stopped and the scars became lighter.

    Great for people with dry skin. It exfoliates your skin very well without causing irritation because it contains mild AHA. Highly recommend.

    When it comes to exfoliation mandalic acid is one of my favourite ingredients. This product containing mandalic acid 5% is quite gentle yet effective in exfoliation. love using it.

    It helps me a lot for clearing up my whiteheads on my nose. It gives very quick results. Unlike the other acids it doesn’t irritates my sensitive skin at all. Definitely gonna buy the full size…

    I bought the small bottle for testing. it helps exfoliating the skin but gave me rashes, may be because of my damaged dry skin. I might come around on this once my skin is healthy again.

    Its really great for acne prone skin, oily skin, It did not cause any irritation on my sensitive skin. But I won’t use it further as I felt I am getting sensitive to sun. Ahas do cause sun sensitivity. Even after sunscreen, I felt I am getting tanned easily.

    I have a hypersensitive skin, and I bought this product along with Purito unscented serum for the sake of trying it out and it’s been a month and this combo is working great for me, it’s getting rid of texture and gradually PIH I would definitely recommend for people with sensitive, dry skin. No irritation, No flaking

    This is the most safest exfoliating toner for sensitive skin beauties. It’s extremely mild and gentle. Contains so many hydrating and soothing ingredients to minimizes the irritation of exfoliation though it doesn’t cause any sort of irritation on my sensitive skin.

    This is one of the most gentle exfoliators I have used. It does sting a little bit if it comes in contact with active acne but the effect afterwards is amazing!

Dos’s and Dont’s

Q1. Do I use this in place of toner?

A. Yes and no. While the mandelic water is not a toner, depending on if you feel that your skin needs the extra layer of hydration and protection that a toner provides, you can choose to use the mandelic water during the step you would toner, and skip toner as a whole. This is because the mandelic water, while it’s considered an exfoliator, works to also prep the skin as a toner would for skincare products applied afterwards.

Q2. What’s the main function of the Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water?

A. You can think of the Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water as an all-in-one face exfoliator. It not only improves the skin’s texture, brighten the skin tone and nourish the complexion.It exfoliates away dead skin for a more radiant appearance. The mandelic water also carries anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties, making it effective on acne as well.

Q3. When/How many times can i use this?

A. You can use the Mandelic acid 3-4 times a week before using your toner, however if you have sensitive skin we would recommend you to use this product only 2-3 times a week. We advise you to gently wipe and pat the product on your face using cotton pad. (In the morning: please make sure to apply sun-lotion after using the product. we recommend to use AHA and BHA in your night time routine)

Q4. How should I store?

A. please keep it in a fridge or dark, cool and dry place in the room. For the best effect, use it all as soon as possible after opening the bottle.

Q5. What products should I stay away from when using this?

A. We recommend you don’t use this with other products that have exfoliating ingredients such as retinol, high concentration of vitamin C, AHA, BHA, and more. It may irritate your skin. Recommended using toner, serum and essence, and moisturizer after applying mandelic acid 5% prep water.

Q6. Is it suitable for teenager and pregnant woman?

A. For the teenager, Yes because It is produced based on reliable ingredients. so it can be used regardless of age / gender except for specific constitution. But we’d like to visit your own doctor with list of ingredients for pregnant woman for the more detailed diagnosis reflecting personal conditions.
