Vivant® Skin Care 3% Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Wash

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.

Dried out

This product left my skin as dry as the desert. It claims to leave hydrated skin but I did not have that experience.

Not Effective

This product dried out my skin and didnt clean it well enough. Used toner afterward and it was like I just applied makeup

Wash Away

I did not think this product worked well with my face. I feel that it broke out more so than usual.

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.

Not a fan

There was little to no scent, which I liked. But overall did not feel like this product was effective. I felt like it left my skin oily.

Not for my skin
Sampled

This made my face really red and dry. It wasn't for me! At first I thought it was great and then I took it off and my face was burning :(

Just okay

I've used it a couple times and it seems to work fine but the sample is too small to see any lasting results.

Not for sensitive skin
Sampled

I was using this treatment fairly regularly and it seemed to be clearing up a few problem areas on my face, but one day I had an allergic reaction to the product. It severely dried out an area of my face and caused redness and itching. Just a heads up for those with sensitive skin types.

Good little wash gel
Sampled

I'm 37 and still acne-prone at times. I've been using Proactiv for over a decade and am devoted to it. This product was a nice change of pace from my usual and I did like the lack of sulfur smell with this that I normally get in my regular product. However, the sample is just too small for me to tell if it's going to do what it promises to do over the long haul (namely prevent acne and reduce dark spots and uneven tone). Marketing department: if you want people to truly test your product and give solid reviews you need to give them at least a two weeks' supply; this tiny vial did not get the job done.

Not sure about the smell.
Sampled

I use a lot of different types of acid for my face and I'm not sure this one is right for me. My favorite is the Exfolikate Gentle...but this one has a funny smell. Kind of like bug spray actually. I can't tell if it's effective because I think it would need at least 6 uses and the sample is pretty small. Immediately after using my face doesn't feel irritated or anything but I can't really get past the smell.
