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

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.

Not gentle enough

It made me itch and it made my face red, even though it said it was gentle. After my face went back to normal, it was softer, but not worth it.

Drying
Sampled

I didn't see a noticeable change to acne or uneven color. And it left my skin dry after using it (every other day use, as directed). I already have a product that works well, so it's not worth changing for me.

This stuff is okay. I didnt see much difference in my skin, but thats probably because the sample wasnt big enough to see results. I still have small acne spots, discoloration, and dull skin. It wont take a cleanser to get rid of all of that on my skin.

Not sure on results
Sampled

I think this sample size was too small to see much effect. I have been using every other day for a week and haven't noticed any change in my acne. I do feel my skin is clean and feels tighter after each use.

Meh...

I know exfoliation is important, but most exfoliating facial scrubs leave my face irritated and this one was no exception. The sample size wasn't large enough to determine if the other claims were legit, either.

Unsure

Didn't have a big enough sample to notice a difference for fine lines, but liked using it and it seemed to be a great cleanser without being too harsh.

Jury's still out

Like other reviewers, I didn't find the sample large enough to gauge its effectiveness. My face is a bit sensitive, and it seemed this product caused increased redness after each use (initially about 12 hours, after the 6th use, it was only noticeable right after washing). It didn't seem to leave my skin smooth like products that completely exfoliate.

Cleanser

So I used this and did not notice a huge difference. It cleansed as it was supposed to but I didn't notice a difference in my acne or skin tone, but maybe I haven't been using it long enough?

sample size a little small
Sampled

i can't say that this reduced lines or evened my skin tone because i just didn't have enough to try it for long. but i can say that it went on really nicely and made my skin feel nice. i have sensitive skin and it didn't cause any breakouts or redness like some products do. i just read that you can use it on your scalp so i want to try that with the last little bit i have left.
