Try pairing this serum with Vivant’s Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Wash for best results.

Vivant® Skin Care

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s tricky treating hyperpigmentation and aging, but especially so when you have sensitive skin. You products that will deliver results, without irritating your facecomplexion in the process. There’s no need to compromise anymore: this super-effective serum brightens skin and eliminates hyperpigmentation, without dryness, redness, or other aftereffects.

How it Works

Mandelic acid, a gentler form of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), supercharges cell turnover and clears up acne by eliminating bacteria. Niacinamide strengthens skin’s moisture barrier and shrinks oversized pores.

How to Use

On alternating days, apply a few drops to your entire face after cleansing. If no irritation develops after two weeks, you can start applying this serum once a day.

Key Ingredients: Mandelic Acid, Lactic Acid, Urea, Niacinamide

I have combination skin and am prone to breakouts on my cheeks. This serum is helping to reduce the left over blemish marks and is keeping the zits away. All while fighting wrinkles! This is my new skin care staple!

Worth it
Purchased

I began using this at night for the last 7-8 weeks at the same time as 2 topical prescriptions from the derm (1 morning/1night) and it took about a month to see the amount of acne reduce significantly. I have acne exasperated by hormones around pms and it was almost impossible to control because I cant take anything oral for it due to sensitivities. Ive played with all 3 products to see what is most effective and if I don't use this serum along with my 2 prescription creams then the creams are not as effective...This serum really makes that much of a difference. On days the prescription night cream is drying me out too much I will use the serum alone and it continues to keep acne away. if I skip a day without the serum or cream I will have a breakout. Once your skin gets use to this I don't know if you can live without it if you adult acne. Stings slightly at times in the beginning but not enough to put you off. Almost like a reassurance that its penetrating. It comes in a glass bottle so be careful where you place it nightly and it comes out almost like a watery consistency. I layer it after moisturizer because I have sensitive skin and it will turn me slightly pink if I apply it before the moisturizer. This product is the worth the money ;)

Amazing
Purchased

I'm surprised that Mandelic Acid is not in many acne products. After using this for several months my skin is better than ever. Typically I'm prone to acne, but this cleared it up better than any other product I have tired. My skin tone looks really great as well.

Secret Weapon
Purchased

I cannot believe there have not been more reviews on this product. I have very sensitive skin along with redness. After trying glycolic and retinol products as well as lactic acid products with no success and tons of irritation, I almost gave up. I tried this one last product and it works. I am fair and had sun damage along with hyper pigmentation on my upper lip after a summer in the sun. I used this item for 2 weeks and followed the directions and I am thrilled to say that I look good with little foundation coverage. Many of my issues have diminished. Might I recommend a nice moisturizer with this product. I use one for sensitive skin and aloe based. I layer it with this product 1 hr before bed to let it sink in. Enjoy.
