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.

Meh...
Sampled

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.

Hard to tell
Sampled

It's really hard to tell if this face wash really did anything because the sample size was so small. I don't think using it a handful of times is going to reduce any dark spots on your face or clear up any acne. I did like the was it felt and my face felt refreshed after I used it. A little pricey for face wash.

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.

I have pretty clear skin but do have redness. I didn't notice a change in the redness of my skin after using this product.

Already noticed a difference
Sampled

I received a sample of this product, and already love it. I've only been using it for about 2 weeks and already notice my skin tone evening. I have some hyperpigmentation from acne, and I'm hoping this product will continue to lighten those spots.

Lovely!
Sampled

I really liked this product! I wish my sample had been slightly larger so that I could have had a better idea how this wash would affect my face over a longer period of time. It has a really great light scent and leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry. If it were just slightly less expensive I'd consider purchasing it full-size.

Simply the Best!
Sampled

This is hands down the best product I have received through Birchbox. I am a fan - it does everything it says it does just like you'd want it too. My skin looks incredible and I've even gotten some compliments on my skin tone just after using the sample a couple of times.

Jury's still out
Sampled

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.

Miracle Product!
Sampled

I have very fair skin with hyper-pigmentation in some areas from old acne marks. I received the sample and within 3 days of using this wash, I noticed the marks fading. It's also super gentle (a lot of acne washes are drying, but not this one!), and I haven't had any breakouts since using it. I bought it in a full size as soon as the sample ran out! Love it!
