A dramatically different AHA experience synergistically formulated to target the top three trouble spots—acne, aging, irregular pigmentation—in one simple, unsurpassed serum that’s safe for all skin tones.

Skin Type: Recommended for Normal, Combination and Oily skin.

Ideal for: Darker skin tones and skin too sensitive for Benzoyl Peroxide, hydroquinone and glycolics.


What You’ll See

Firmer, brighter, more even skin tone and texture. Gentle exfoliation reduces the appearance of fine lines, dark spots, and acne impactions. 


What You’ll Feel 

Micro-exfoliation is normal. If excessive drying occurs, skip a few days and restart every other day.


What You Should Know

Anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, brightening, gently exfoliating Mandelic Acid will not trigger hyperpigmentation. Excellent alternative to glycolic acid for sensitive or dark skin tones.


Regimen Step: three

Use following cleansing and toning steps, when skin is primed for optimum product penetration.  


Frequency: Up to twice daily - AM and/or PM. Start usage every other day and build to daily use.


Method: Apply an even layer over the entire face, neck, and décolleté (no spot treating). Allow serum to dry briefly before applying additional products or makeup to skin.


Pro tips: 

Apply C+E after the Mandelic Acid serum has dried for added brightening and photoprotective effects.


May be used on face, neck, chest, and back.
