I'm an African-American female that has battled issues w/ hormonal acne since puberty. With my skin tone -comes the spots/hyperpigmentation that acne leaves behind. Mandelic Acid not only helps to PREVENT acne but it also CLEARS away the spots that can linger around for months after the acne goes away. I have tried ProActiv like everyone else but that only dried out my skin + it actually caused me to break out which defeats the purpose of it, right?!?! I only use this cleanser at night. You need to gradually work up to using it daily since the WONDERFUL acid in this stuff can be harsh for newcomers. This product is now a permanent addition to my skin-care routine. AND IT LAST FOR THE LONGEST TIME (if you only use it at night) I can actually go w/o make-up!!! THANKS VIVANT!
Part of my Cleansing Routine
I got this item as a sample in one of my boxes. I noticed that it started making a difference once I used it all of the sample. So I went ahead and purchased this product. So far it is part of my routine of clearing up my adult acne. I do not use it everyday and probably would not recommend it, but to use every three days. I believe this product is contributing to my skin improvements.
The granules in this are a little harsh so be careful when rubbing this into the face as it might be too much for some people but this is a nice exfoliating and clearing cleanser that really helps keep my oily skin bump free, this is in my regular rotation of cleansers.
I used this last night and this morning, the sample size is generous, and my skin looks and feels great. Price is a little spendy for a cleanser, but a bit goes a long way. Reminds me of Skin Fitness, another natural cleanser I love.
Harsh For Skin
I have acne prone skin and found this cleanser for adult acne a little to harsh for my skin. Strips away all oil.
