By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Prep Water helps to exfoliate dead skin cells, lightens blemishes and dark spots and brightens dull skin without irritation.

Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid derived from bitter almonds but is less irritating to the skin compared to Glycolic acid. Mandelic acid has a larger molecular weight that sits on the surface of the skin and gently exfoliates without irritating the skin. Mandelic acid helps to exfoliate dead skin cells and promotes skin cell turnover, lightens blemishes and dark spots, fights skin ageing and results in brighter, even-toned and healthier, radiant skin. Additional key ingredients like Panthenol, Centella Asiatica Extract and Beta-Glucan soothes and moisturizes the skin even after exfoliation.

Best suited for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.

    Mild yet effective chemical exfoliater.

  2. deepshikhagoswami393

    This is the best product if you have bumpy skin like i had, the physical exfoliator only remove dead skin cells from above surface, but it removes them from within, from my teenage i had bummy skin, but after using it my skin became even n soft Thank you beauty barn.

  3. yukitenshi92 (verified owner)

    Really good exfoliating product. Although it stings a little on first use my skin got used to it by the 3rd or 4th time. Sensitive skin types might want to be wary but a great product for acne care and pore care!

  4. patraoadeline (verified owner)

    Basically I am a scrub kinda person. So when I decided to try the Mandelic acid based chemical exfoliant, I needed to be very sure that it won’t irritate my skin but also does the job it claims. Very skeptical initially… After going through many reviews esp from youtube host Eunice of Wishtrend (huge inspiration). I decided to try this and my oh my this works wonders on my skin. The effects cN be seen the next day.. A smooth and plump skin. I use it twice a week for now may increase depending on skin condition.. A must try

  5. sem.golmei (verified owner)

    I have an oily and acne prone skin so I decided to try this one out. I’m reviewing as it’s been 2 weeks since I started using mandelic acid and so far I’m seeing good results, acne scars has gradually reduced N that’s definitely an improvement and I’m so…so… loving it.

  6. rooparaghav5

    Very effective product gently exfoliate my skin & improve overall texture of my skin I use this product a lot in summers because of watery texture & how beautifully it brighten my skin by removing fine dust & dead skin cells highly recommend for sensitive skin !!!

  7. pialobo474

    After a lot of research into AHA and BHA I finally decided to give this one a try. It stings a bit whenever i apply it but it is bearable and doesn’t cause redness or anything of that sort. My skin feels alot smoother the next day after i have used this. I usually use it twice a week followed by the Klairs Blue Claming Cream. A good alternative to harsh scrubs out there.

  8. anjali.goyal9613 (verified owner)

    After trying many exfoliating products, this is the only one that doesnt break me out. But does the job of exfoliating prefectly. Plus point- contains panthenol and licorice making it even more soothing for skin…highly recommend.

  9. aishwaryasingh1695

    I got it for the little bumpy texture of my forehead . It worked amazing in smoothing it out with gradual use. Going to order my second bottle.

  10. karmawangmo96 (verified owner)

    I really love this product….this is the must have while breaking out… leaves my skin smooth and bright after application

  11. shelley.nayak

    This is the first Acid exfoliating product I had tried. It never irritated my sensitive skin. I was using it 1-2 times a week and my skin would look soft, bright and have less breakouts (the small zits we get). I am definitely gonna repurchase this in the future.

  12. akritilovlife

    I love this one so much. I can use it daily as I suffer from serious and it has never once caused a reaction of any sort! I have used it as recommended just on it own, before and after toner and every time I have achieved desired results. I can never part with this, it is gentle as well as effective.
    I was introduced to this one by a friend and her way of application is leaving it on for good 15mins and then applying anything on top. This way it helps absorption better and no wonder that is how I use it almost always!

  13. aishwaryasingh1695

    Got this again as a trial bottle from beautybarn and this never fails to impress me.

  14. shemishahin

    It smoothens your skin. I have acne prone sensitive skin. This is my fav exfoliator.

  15. suresh kumar (verified owner)

    its just soooo!!! gud???????????its definitely worth the ??????

  16. aanchalkar102

    Mandelic acid(AHA) by wishtrend is perfect for combination + sensitive skin, it worked pretty well for stubborn whiteheads in a few uses only but I personally didn’t think it works for blackheads or hormonal acne.

  17. raipriyankarai33 (verified owner)

    I am almost done with this toner lasted for close to a month, so maybe I can properly review it out here for others.
    First off, it did and still does sting a little depending on your skin’s vulnerability at the point of application.
    I used it during my Ladakh trip and because of the tan, it did sting my face whenever I used it. Not a major burning sensation but just little stinging effect.
    Prior to this I was using the KLAIRS supple prep toner, which is non-watery more thicker consistency and I was used to that consistency.
    This MANDELIC ACID is in true essence a proper toner with its runny consistency, but it failed to impart a plump that I felt from using KLAIRS supple prep toner.
    Overall an average product – passable. Would not go for a 2nd purchase.

    Writing this review after using this for a month. I use it daily at night the toner step. I have sensitive, acne prone, combination skin. It is a mild exfoliator..and didn’t break me out. Gets easily absorbed without making the skin dry.
    Changes that I noticed-
    1.No more bumpy forehead
    2. Reduced the sandy texture of my skin
    3.Fading my acne scars..though very slowly..but definitely
    4. Gives a healthy glow to the skin even when I don’t use a highlighter

    Didn’t help much with blackheads as of now.
    Gets over very quickly although I use it only once a day(as compared to other toners of the same quantity that I have used).
    I still get breakouts..though the number has decreased.

    Will I repurchase-
    Yes. But not now.Next, I want to try the Pixi Glow tonic as I want to test whether it’s really worth the hype..and also the two products are kinda similar they say.

    Would I recommend it to others-

    Yes definitely. It’s a good mild exfoliator. Everyone should try it atleast once and decide for themselves.

  19. bratati.datta88 (verified owner)

    I bought this for my mom. U know how moms are. Completely clueless about skincare. Ageing signs prominen. No exfoliation.

    Now I bought this for her and she is not a good student. So, yeah, she uses it very rare and irregularly. Still the product manages to give some effect on her skin. She has better glow, a little more hydration also, it seems. So yeah, a 5 star is what I like to give.

    If you’re new to the acid toning game, Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water is a good place to start. Mandelic acid is a milder AHA, so it’s better for beginners who have never used AHAs before.
    It does have a mild stinging sensation if you’re using it for the first time, which goes away quickly, and after a few uses your skin gets used to it as well.
    I have oily-combination acne prone skin and use it every day as my daily toner. I have been using it for 5 weeks now, and my skin feels very smooth. I can see it giving me a clean slate for all my essences, sleeping masks to absorb better. Like, my skin looks visibly polished (?) and smooth. Not really an HG, but I am very happy with this. 4/5 for me.

    REMINDER: Remember to wear sun cream after (or after any product with potent ingredients)! Also, it will not do much for blackheads because it’s an AHA- not BHA. Look into BHA products if blackheads are your main concern.

  21. samaptibanerjee77 (verified owner)

    This baby is my best friend! It has taken care of my skin like no one ever did. I used to get massive acne attacks but after using this, I rarely get one! This has made my skin so smooth and clear that I rarely wear foundation now! Best exfoliator ever! Hands down!!

  22. zoyaacharya195 (verified owner)

    It’s been more than a week and I can see visible difference n my skin as I have used the smaller bottle before. It really giving such a glow n my face also haven’t gt any kind of skin irritation after using it. It’s really very mild that even sensitive skin can use it without worrying about anything. Sometimes I even use it as a sheet mask to reduce the inflammation of my skin like in some cotton pads I pour some drops of Mandelic Acid and then put those cotton pads in my face as a mask for 3-4 minutes then apply my moisturiser. So I highly recommend this.

  23. gurmukhdas.pamnani25

    I like this one to exfoliate a few times a week. Be careful to not overdo it like I did in the beginning

  24. merakiyangyang

    Thank you soo much beauty barn for suggesting me this chemical exfoliator..For years I was hunting for good exfoliator the mildest ones but I didnt get any ..Most of the exfoliators would make my skin rough dry and red but this for the first time didn’t make my skin’s very good for sensitive skin and also for other skin types as well..I’ve just started using it and I’m really liking it

  25. mahreenk17 (verified owner)

    This is a very good exfoliator. Me and my sisters (we all have different skin types) have been using this for 2 months now..n it’s safe to say this works for all skin types.
    Changes we noticed-
    *Evens out the skin tone n skin texture.
    *Helps in getting rid of the dead skin and bumps
    *Adds a healthy glow to your skin
    *Though it stings a lil, it doesn’t cause irritation or break us out.
    – Dint do much for the blackheads though.
    Verdict- its a safe beginner’s chemical exfoliator that gets its job done !!?

  26. tanu.tanu.roy80

    After trying out the sample size product…bought this full size. Very impressed with the results. Suits me so well.

  27. ashdey3

    This is my first time of using a chemical exfoliator . I was suffering from closed comedones and this product has certainly reduced them to an extent,not totally though,and i can feel that this increases the absorption and functionality of my other products. Totally recommend it

  28. Neelam ruhi (verified owner)

    This is my first chemical exfoliator. It’s good for the people who are new to chemical exfoliating. It made my skin smooth and also reduced pores to some extent. But about my dark spots it did nothing . I think it still takes time

  29. supritak7

    This is the first Acid exfoliating product I had tried. It never irritated my sensitive skin. I was using it 1-2 times a week and my skin would look soft, bright and have less breakouts (the small zits we get). It also helps me a lot for clearing up my acne marks. Love it. Definitely gonna repurchase it.

  30. angelyn.kelman (verified owner)

    This is a very understated but very effective toner. It has helped clear up my skin so much. Used two bottles of the Miracle toner by Somebymi but in vain. This Mandelic toner has worked miracles and it’s my favorite. Skin is brighter and smoother and acne has cleared up. Thanks beautybarn for introducing me to this miracle product.

  31. moni.mybeauty

    This is my holy grail exfoliating product. It is very gentle yet works effectively. I have quite sensitive acne prone skin and it doesn’t give me any breakouts.

  32. lovelipsticks.xoxo

    Mandelic acid is a milder AHA, so it’s better for beginners who have never used AHAs before. This mandelic acid toner is very mild. It evens out the skin tone n skin texture. Clears all those tiny bumps. Doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin at all.

  33. shibagouri1313 (verified owner)

    Good product. Have been using it for past 1 month. Haven’t seen any visible results but does good job as a mild exfoliator.

  34. srishtixcvii

    Very mild exfoliation. (Not a bad thing) glycolic acid stings my face no matter how much lower % I use it and mandelic acid is just so much better for my skin.
    I would love to repurchase this whenever it comes back in stock.

  35. linosumi17

    My only skin concern is tiny bumps on my forehead and chins. I get it if I’m dehydrated and if I expose my bare face to direct sunlight without anything on my face. I use This mildest exfoliating toner on my PM routine followed by a moisturiser.
    Tiny bumps here and there and this does the magic overnight. Love this so much and would recommend to and for all skin types ????

  36. banditaroy062

    So gentle and so mild. Effectively exfoliates my skin without causing any irritation.

  37. Indrani Dutta

    Works well in resurfacing the skin but stings everytime I use this. This is pretty budget friendly AHA


    I have oily acne prone skin and I choose to try this out after emptying cosrx bha because of the brightening claims of the mandelic acid which I wish could help my oily dull skin. But to be honest, this is pretty mild exfoliator. Not a heavy duty one. Exfoliates the upper layer of the skin just like any aha but for oily skin which needs pretty much work inside the pores, this doesnt help. Its very watery. Smell doesnt bother me much. Didnt notice any brightening effects even after 5 mnths of consistent usage twice a week. Smoothens skin for sure. So its great for ppl with normal or dry sensitive skin. Oily skin ones please go with cosrx bha.

    Can we use this on combination skin type, before applying snail cream?
