Stop letting dead skin skills bring your complexion down. Brighten up with this Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser.

Vivant® Skin Care

Birchbox Breakdown

Acne, ingrown hairs, dandruff —what do these all have in common (other than being terrible keywords to put in an online dating profile)? Each of these conditions is triggered and worsened by dead skin and bacteria buildup. Take care of both issues with this gentle cleanser and ensure that your skin is nothing but soft, clear, and hydrated.

How it Works

Mandelic acid, a gentle but effective alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), loosens expired skin cells and kills bacteria and germs—all without any of the redness and irritation that other ingredients can sometimes leave behind.

How to Use

To avoid any potential irritation, start off by using this cleanser on alternating days. Apply a small amount to face, scalp, or body—anywhere you have trouble areas. It also works beautifully as a shaving gel to prevent ingrown hairs. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and, as with all AHAs, be sure to follow up with a good sunscreen.

Key Ingredients: Mandelic Acid, Green Tea Extract, Kiwi Fruit Extract, Honey Extract, Grape Seed Extract

good for sensitive skin
Purchased

I got this face wash in one of my boxes and was so happy I did. This face wash does a great jo with my sensitive and acne prone skin. Either ancne washes are too harsh or done work at all. This makes my skin feel clean but not tight like some acne face washes can. A great purchase all around!!

Great product

This product left my face feeling amazing. A little goes a long way, and I got a good amount of uses out of the sample. It helped with some red areas on my face, evened out my skin tone, and made my face feel softer. I dont have bad acne, but I did notice bigger zits seemed to disappear quicker. I will be purchasing the full size version shortly.

Harsh

I felt like this product stripped my skin of all nutrients. Left me feeling more than dry! Might be a good use for those with serious acne, but I felt my skin was too sensitive.

Makes my skin feel really dry

My skin felt very dry after using this product. I also didn't feel like my skin was clean or all the dirt was gone. Followed up using another cleansing product since this didnt really work,

great cleanser
Purchased

deep cleans and clarifies but feels fresh and not too dried out - feels like my skin is just being thoroughly cleansed pores and all each time. Maybe even helping with the face lines and definitely with acne or skin imperfections.

Great for problem skin
Purchased

This skin wash is not only great for your face, but for your scalp as well. If you have a dry or flaky scalp it helps to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells and refresh your scalp. It is also a great addition to any skincare regimen to help prevent breakouts.

I finally have clear skin!

This product is a godsend. I am obsessed. I tell everyone who will listen how this product transformed my face. I have adult onset cystic acne, which is horribly painful and ugly. Within a week of using this product (daily, without irritation) my skin was clear and glowing. After a month the acne scars evaporated. I will never stop loving this product. Even though my acne has cleared I use this product every other day to prevent it from returning. I have looked far and wide for a product like this. If you want clear, beautiful skin buy this product. You WILL NOT regret it!
