What is Mandelic Acid?

Mandelic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid.  Derived from bitter almonds, it has a number of benefits for the skin.

The molecular structure of mandelic acid is larger than better known alpha hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid and lactic acid.  This means it takes longer to penetrate the skin's surface and is much less irritating. 

Benefits

--Rapidly exfoliates dead skin cells and surface debris from the skin.
--Mandelic acid has antimicrobial/antibacterial properties, making it an excellent choice for all types of acne, including cystic acne.
--Loosens blackheads for easy extraction.
--Cleans and refines pores.
--Refines the tone and texture of the skin, brightens.
--Mandelic acid is excellent for clients with darker skin tones.  It does not cause the unwanted, lighter skin tone changes that you might experience with other AHA's.
--Mandelic acid inhibits the growth of melanin, the cause of brown patches, freckles, uneven skin tone and other sun-related skin care issues.
--Mandelic acid, with continued use, can help repair sun damaged skin.
--Mandelic acid reduces lines and wrinkles without the irritation of other AHA's.
--Mandelic is typically an excellent exfoliator for clients suffering from Rosacea.
 
What can I expect when using this peel?

Upon application, within the first minute-or-so, you will feel very little topical sensation, perhaps none.  Then, the skin may have a "warming" sensation, or slight tingling.  Remember, that this acid will penetrate more slowly, thus the topical sensation will take a bit longer.  ***Don't be fooled by the lack of sensation... it *is* working, so do not leave it on the skin longer than directed.

Some clients will see actual peeling of the skin.  Others will just notice the excellent exfoliation benefits and a brighter, more glowing skin tone.

Important:


This product is *not* a serum.  It has a watery consistency, so either dip a q-tip into the bottle for application, or remove the cap, place a gauze pad on the open bottle and tip it over to soak the gauze, then apply.
 
Instructions listed above, under corresponding tab.
 
General Cautions:
 
  • Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using a peel.
  • Stop Retin A, benzoyl peroxides, acne products and any other drying agents 24 hours before and after using an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy peel.
  • If you are allergic to aspirin products, never use a salicylic acid nor beta hydroxy peel.
  • Never apply a peel without doing a patch-test first and waiting 48 hours for results.
  • Never apply a chemical peel to inflamed skin.
  • Always read product directions in their entirety and don't take shortcuts.
  • Use our BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream for skin that has been chemically over processed.  It contains advanced healing agents that will quickly get your skin back to normal.
  • When in doubt about a caution, please write or call us for more information.

    Amazing product!
    I ordered the 25% mandelic acid peel and used for about twice before I saw fantastic results. I have had acne for about 25 yrs of my life. Mostly cystic, large painful pimples, that were hard to get rid of by over the counter products. I have tried almost EVERYTHING. I finally went to an aesthetician and she did a TCA, Lactic and mandelic acid combo peel, which really seemed to help my skin. I usually paid her $120/peel and her after care regimen included mandelic acid toner (5%). So I did my research and found MUAC that offered a wide variety of peels. I just wanted to stick to Mandelic acid, since my skin did well with that and boy, I am so glad I chose to stick with it. It's been about 3 months and I do this peel every week. The first few weeks, my skin did peel a small amount,...but now after the 5th week it just looks fresh and my skin really is ACNE FREE. I have not felt this since I was 18 :) I still have a lot of pock marks and enlarged pores that I need to eventually get rid of, but I.m really happy with the results of this peel. Thank you MUAC

    Surprising
    I am surprised at how well this worked. I have pretty good skin but I scar easily so everytime I get a scratch or a pimple it scars then darkens from sun exposure. So I needed something that helped with hyper pigmentation and I was very pleased with the results of the mandelic acid. I don't use it all over as this would be too caustic for me, but I do a spot treatment for my dark spots and I am seeing results pretty quickly (two weeks). I have to say that I do a spot treatment with this stuff everyday, just a light dab with a q-tip and I find that this works very well. I honestly think that my hyper pigmentation will be gone in another two weeks or so. The dark spots have been with me for over a year and lightening creams didn't have much of an effect. I am impressed by this Company and the quality of the products. I care a lot about how skincare products are processed, under what standards, controls and regulations. Thanks MUAC, you rock!

    Great, great peel!
    This was the first peel I used and it is a favorite of mine. It is extremely gentle on my extremely sensitive skin, and great for maturing skin and darker complexions. It "tingles" but doesn't burn at all, and after the first time using it I noticed immediate results. A great, great peel for those just starting and scared about putting "acid" on their face, this product will eliminate all your fears.

    Mandelic acid
    Not completely sure about how I feel about this product. It has not produced incredible results as some experience,but over all tone of my face seems slightly better. I will keep using it. It does dry my skin out for about 2-3 days but nothing exfoliation and lotion cant help. One down side,it seems to "lift" the pimples that are secretly lurking under your skin so after I used it, I thought I got a rash or something because I never get ttht many little pimples at once, which was scary. But it went away within 2 days or so...still kinda weird. ****MUAC Comment - If you have acne or breakouts often, using a chemical peel will pull the oils and debris to the skin's surface, resulting in some blemishes. Further, if you are using acne-related products, please discontinue those prior to your peel... at least 24 hours, don't use them the day-of the peel, and don't resume for 24 hours after the peel. What you may have seen is a "dry rash" that can happen when too many drying products are used at the same time.***

    Amazing for sun damage
    I am 60 yrs old and had several "sunspots" on my face as well as several actinic keratosis areas caused by being in the sun. I have very fair skin. I started using Mandelic acid peel 25% about 3 months ago and I am now using the 40% solution. I also use the Mandelic Acid toner twice daily. My sun spots have decreased by at least 80% . I was scheduled for a laser peel and was able to cancel. My husband has very dark skin and is prone to acne and I have used the toner on him several times with great results. I would highly recommend this product. First time users should start gradually and be aware that your skin will be a little red the day after using.

    25% Mandelic Acid Peel
    i'm currently using the Mandelic Acid Peel inconjuction with the mandelic acid cleaner, toner,and Acid Serum - 10% Concentration. at first was i using too much, but its working. i feel a slight tingling and heating up but not much to really irritate my skin maybe different for others.I'm a Black man, and i don't really have bad skin, just some hyper pigmentation and a uneven skin tone. so far so good i can feel the difference i can see the peeling, I'm pleased so far. I've done some research to help you to have continued results.Make sure you SPF though out the day and moisturize also don't exfoliate the skin, let the peeling process happen nautrally but that's all for now

    Great for sensitive, acne prone skin!
    This product is fantastic. I have had hormonal acne on my chin, cheeks, and forehead for as long as I can remember. I read reviews about this peel and decided to try it out and I could not be happier. It massively lessened my breakouts. My cystic acne is becoming significantly less active, it got rid of all of my closed comedones, made my pores smaller, got rid of all of my blackheads, lightened the sun damage freckles I have on my nose, and even got rid of a small wrinkle that was forming on my forehead. For someone who has sensitive, dry skin and acne it is a godsend to find a product that is so tough on acne, but gentle on my skin! I experienced no downtime and no peeling. At my first three or so uses I experienced slight tightness of my face but with moisturizer it went away quickly. MUAC thank you for helping me regain my confidence to go out in public without makeup on! 10/10

    Essential
    I use quite a bit of aha, bha, acid peels, retinol, and vitamin c. I started getting this peel about a year ago and I now consider it hands down my favorite product. If I used this two days in a row I have a glow for days after. I rarely "peel" with this but do have clearer skin that appears smoother, you rarely get as much instant gratification with a skin product as you do with the mandelic peel. You should give your skin a rest after using a couple days in a row, but I use it weekly.

    Lightens hyperpigmentation
    I suffer from mild acne however each pimple I get leaves me with severe scars and as a result I have horrible hooorrible hyperpigmentation on my face and neck I've used this peel along with the mandelic acid cleanser for about 5 weeks and they've done a good job or lightening my hyperpigmentation. I'm going to keep using it but because this peel isn't as strong and I want to completely remove all my scars I'm going to do a mild tca peel next.

    I wish my results were the same as everyone elses
    I am so bummed out that I had the exact opposite experience of most reviewers here. This peel completely ruined my skin and I followed directions to a T. I had good skin before I started using this peel, just a few closed comedones here and there that I wanted evened out, and had been using an AHA for months prior to ensure my skin could handle it. Every week when I used the peel, my skin would get worse and worse. I told myself I was just purging and was going to stick with it and hope for the best but now a month has passed and it looks and feels worse than it has ever looked that I really feel like I need to stop using this peel. I wouldn't classify my skin as sensitive and am really surprised by the result. My cheeks are covered in nasty, inflamed, big, red zits and I've been breaking out in places that I usually never do. I'm going to take a break from using any products after this peel in hopes that my skin returns to normal. I'm really sad it didnt work out for me :( ****MUAC Comment: We're so terribly sorry this product caused a problem for you, Ashley. The office will be reaching out to you today to offer help.****

    Please don't ever get rid of this product!
    This peel is phenomenal of acneic skin. With overnight use, makes skin smoother, pores less visible and fades old acne scars faster. I try to use this peel every 4 days to once a week. With 3 weeks of use, I have definitely noticed a difference in the quality and smoothness of my skin. I don't have to cover up with so much makeup. If I had it perfect skin, I would never wear foundation. I can't use all natural skincare products as they they tend to clog my pores.Thank you for a providing a great product!

    Saved my skin!
    I usually never write reviews, but this stuff is great! I had been suffering from severe cystic hormonal acne along my chin/jawline and cheeks for almost a year. My dermatologist prescribed an antibiotic and topical retinoid, which helped somewhat, but I still wasn't happy with my skin (still had cystic breakouts every month). I heard about MUAC's 25% mandelic acid peel on a blog and figured I give it a try. After about a month of use, this stuff saved my skin!! No more hormonal break outs, no more cystic acne! This peel has completely changed my skin. It helped fade some hyperpigmentation, but didn't do much for my scarring (I wasn't really expecting it to help with the scarring, since I have some severe ice pick scars). I absolutely recommend this product to anyone that's suffering from acne!

    Not Designed For My Skin
    I decided to try the peel based on reviews and research that I found. I purchased the item & tried it out. Since that time, my skin is worse than what I started with. I understand the purging process, but even when I took more than a week, the skin is not improving. And my forehead has broken out with bumps, discoloration & generally not a successful item for me. This was not designed for my skin. Good luck to others. ***Thank you for your review, Sharon. The purging process can take several weeks as it pulls oils, dirt and impurities to the skin's surface. Not an easy time, to be sure, but once it's over, your skin is clear and blemish free.****

    Bye bye crows feet
    My husband is starting to get the inevitable crows feet. I gave him this peel and holy cow by the next morning the lines were so much smoother around his eyes. He even noticed how his horizontal forehead lines had diminished. I have since used this peel every week or two (approx. 6 peels) and his skin looks awesome (not one pimple!) He never looks red or flakey because that would be a deal breaker for him. (No shaving the next day and sunscreen is a must.) I love how my pores are easy to clean out after this peel. I have always had a tough time getting my nose pores clean and this peel is the best thing I have found! Plus, I am using this peel on scars on my body and they seem to be fading. (I did take pictures of my scars so I can see the improvement). This is a 'no down-time peel' for us and I am exceedingly pleased with the results.

    Improved my acne and SFs!
    This took my acne control to the next level. The results were almost instantaneous. I still get about 2 cystic acne spots a month, but this is down from 8-10. It's definitely worth trying for yourself. Also, my sebaceous filaments (those brown pores on your nose) are TINY. I can see them, but I have to get really close. I doubt another person would notice them if they were looking for them.

Every time I use this product more and more scaly dry skin, flakes off and the great skin, I had a year ago can be seen peeking through. My lotion actually sinks in and moisturizes my skin now instead a sitting on top being repelled by that dry barrier of skin that would budge until it met it product.

    Effective More Gentle Peel
    4 stars for this peel. I have used it twice and believe that with more uses my skin will be almost flawless. I don't have pimples but have discoloration from years of sports in the sun without sunscreen from when I was in high school, I just recently started wearing sunscreen and as an African American female feel that more skin care companies need to promote the use of sunscreen more for African Americans and other people of color. I didn't know until I was 29 or so that I should be using sunscreen and this was told to me by a skin care professional that primarily deals people of color...I even questioned her about it, haha! 1st time: 1 layer, and resulted in light peeling in small pieces, I already saw a reduction i the smile lines after this use. 2nd time: 2 layers, resulted in more peeling in larger pieces no larger than a 1 cm, I was satisfied with the larger peeling amounts so will be purchasing the 40% full size next time. it seems that with both uses, the areas where I have almost no issues (outer cheeks and forehead near the hairline) there was basically no peeling so I hope that as my skin gets better, I will notice less, and less peeling in my T-Zone area, which is my main problem area (besides undereye-there was no peeling in this area either). I don't see much of a reduction for undereye circles and discoloration or crows feet but am hoping that with regular use (1x per week) and adding the Gly-Luronic peel, my face will be smooth as a a baby's bottom I really wish I knew about these peels when I was in my 20's, would have saved me a lot of research and wasted money. Most companies are interested in having customers experience very slow results, so respect and appreciate MUAC for providing products that give customers quicker results without the games of changing formulas and discontinuing products only to replace them with less effective products that cost more money. I am so excited about this and hope this website is here well into my older years. It is also very refreshing to read reviews from women that are older than me that say that this and other products have worked for them. For my undereye circles and crepeyness, I would be satisfied with just reducing the crepeyness caused by lack of moisture and eye rubbing :( ****MUAC Comment: Thanks for your review, Stacey! For the eye area, it *is* all about deep moisture. Take a look a look at our BellEvolve Advanced Hyaluronic Serum. It's a nano-tech product, penetrates deeply, and typically takes care of "crepey" skin. Allow about a week for it to "kick in"... this is not a regular moisturizer that sits on top of the skin. It's going to completely penetrate at a deep level, so visible results will take about 4-7 days. It's used in hospital burn units for severely damaged skin, so most clients see great results with it. Thanks again!****

    I am really liking this peel. I only just received the sample and have done two peels so far. I'm hoping to fade some red scars leftover from acne and just achieve smoother softer more even toned skin. I tried the Fade peel and it was way too strong for my skin, didn't have a good reaction. I really love the lactic peels and so far I think I'm going to love this one too. It is very gentle, I will be purchasing the full size once my sample is gone!

    Making a difference
    Hello, I'm a new customer of makeup artist's choice. I did some research on at-home chemical peels and came across this company in the process. After hearing good things, AND they offer sample sizes to try out their products, I decided to order. I ordered the 25% mandelic acid peel to start small so as not to cause damage to my skin and it is said to be good for ethnic skin tones. When I used it my pores were noticeably smaller and it loosened up some blackheads. My skin glowed and felt soft and just looked great. I wish I can use it everyday to maintain that look. Aside from that the jury is still out on the scarring I am looking to improve, better than that, clear up. The grainy texture seems to be improving as well although in small doses. It all takes time and I'm patient and understand that the condition of my skin didn't occur overnight. I'm using it every 4 days now and look forward to the higher percentage which is 40% I believe, but it's recommended to use 25% for at lease 6 weeks before doing so. I've used it for a month now, and just ordered another sample size. I'm really looking forward to continued improvement. Thanks Makeup artist's choice! I am a new customer for life and can't wait to try your other products. P.s. I've used this along with the green tea cleanser and toner to clean my skin and in between peels I used the gly-luronic acid serum. I will do reviews on those separately. Great products!

    Love this peel!
    I have fair, freckled (redhead) skin that is prone to breakouts. I also have some lines developing around my eyes that are a bit more than "fine." I've been using MUAC products for ages and although I like many of them, this is the first time that I've ever written a review for one. I've tried at least four other peels, and so far, this is my favorite. Out of all that I have tried (TCA, Lactic, Fade, Beta) this one has done more to help clear my breakouts. I use it every 4 days for 5 minutes. I still have hormonal acne, but the Mandelic Acid Peel clears breakouts faster than anything else I've ever used. Cysts used to take weeks for form and clear, now when one starts to form, it's gone in a week or less and never comes to a head. The skin around the cyst just gets sort of dry and flakes off. Other than the wee bit of dryness, I have no complaints at all - and I'll take a wee bit dry over acne any day of the week. I'll never do without this again. Another hit for MUAC!

    Very Effective
    This was my first time trying the Mandelic Acid Peel. I am a caramel-toned African American woman with normal skin. It has helped to control my acne breakouts, and gently lightened up my scarring. My face has never looked better. I also use in conjunction with a periodic Jessner Peel, but used alone weekly it is as effective as any cleansing regimen.

    Great Intro Product for Peels!
    I would always get chemical peels at Kaiser - but they cost around $80+ and it's not like they are relaxing or soothing - it's like 15 minutes and your in and out. All that for $80? No thanks. I tried to find peels online - and finally I did! I have to admit, I was a bit cautious at first. A little scared about what it would be like - what if I mess up? But no worries - this is practically fool proof!!! I have combo skin - I have suffered from acne for 12+ years. This was the first peel I purchased from this site. It was great!! I was using the 10% daily serum morning and night - and then introduced the 25% peel up to once or twice a week. It didn't really make me peel - just get a little dry and flakey in certain areas. But it really helps control my acne and make my skin super soft! Would recommend this to anyone! I have now moved up to the 40% and do that up to twice a week :)

    You will see results.
    I found a review on this product while doing a search for a way to get rid of dark spots for black women. I've tried it as I've tried many other things before. This is the difference! I've used expense product systems which cause your skin to be dry and peel for days and look like crap making you want to stay home the whole time you're using it and still no change worthy of enduring the cost. There's a tingle that tells you it's working, it's not a 2x a day ritual, and you'll get results that even others will notice.

    Best Product I've Ever Used
    This stuff is literally the best product Ive used on my skin ever! I had a 6 month bout with cystic acne ( it is the absolute worse stage of acne). NOTHING was working! I was getting cortisone shots and acid peels at the dermatologist and was taking spirolatone and it wasnt stopping the nasty breakouts...need I mention the hyperpigmentation :( I googled acid peels for African American women and came across this website and boy was that a BLESSING! I ordered this and the acid wash and toner and my acne was stopped in its tracks. My skin has a glossy smooth finish and looks the best its looked in months (almost a year). I will update my review and post pics once more of the hyperpigmentration is gone. The toner is amazing as well. It cleans off all the skin debri and leaves your skin soft and supple. I just ordered the phytic acid just to try something new. So I'll let you know how that goes. But on a scale on 1-5 this gets 5 big golden stars!

    I did not notice any difference using the 25% mandelic peel , so switched to the 40% which was more effective, but did not give me the results I was looking for. I started using the mandelic/salisylic peel and got good results.

    Love this product!!
    I read about this product on xovain - I've found some of my favorite prodcuts on there, so I decided to give this a shot. I have "recovering" combination skin - I don't really get breakouts anymore, except for hormonal pimples on my chin when I'm on my period, but my forehead and chin are scarred from years of acne. Both areas are pretty red and bumpy, and I have hyperpigmentation around my hairline. Using this product has helped me tremendously - the hyperpigmentation is 98% gone, and the scars/unevenness are smoothing out. I've been using this product twice a week for 3 weeks and I started seeing results instantly. I apply this after cleansing and toning and letting my face dry. I leave this on for 5 minutes, rinse off with cool water, and then use a little bit of moisturizer. The next morning everything looks much smoother. I can't wait to try out more MUAC products!

    Mandelic acid = great skin!
    This is just one of the peels that I love from MUAC - but probably the one that will give you clear skin the fastest if you're over 30 and don't want to deal with downtime. When I use this my skin is smooth as silk afterwards and I feel like makeup is pretty much optional. Results are definitely cumulative - my skin just keeps getting better. I also began to use peels on my 13 yo stepson and am heading off the beginnings of teenage acne - and he's happy too. I recommend MUAC to everyone and will continue to do so!

    My new favorite from MUAC
    I have been using muac products since 2009, and I have recently tried the 25% mandelic acid. It is my new favorite acid peel. It does wonders for my skin, and my teenage son's skin. I wish I had found this product earlier in life. My skin was noticeably clearer( helps with clogged pores & cystic acne), beautiful tone(No redness), & firmer skin after only two uses in 8 days. It also keeps my son's teenage acne under control. No dermatologist for him, mom has found a product that works great! Try this, you will see a difference! Thank you MUAC!

    I was skeptical about purchasing 25% Mandelic Acid after trying numerous products that promised results only to be disappointed. I brought 2 sample bottles end of July and let me just say this stuff is my new face product. I am 46 and have had bad acne breakouts and scarring for the past 15 years on a daily basis. This is my 5th peel and I have not had another breakout and the scarring is fading; my skin is looking better with each peel. I can't stop looking in the mirror, this product really works. My husband asked what I was doing because the black marks are fading. I am buying more before my little samples run out.

    While this product does get you to peel as expected, for some reason it has darkened my melasma :( I'm not entirely sure why, I followed the instructions carefully, however I do know this is always a risk with peels. It's also darkened some old acne scars as well even though I have been moisturizing and staying out of the sun. I'm glad it's worked for others, unfortunately not for me.

    Works great
    I started using this peel to get rid of some stubborn closed comedones on my chin area. I have combination skin with oily T-zone and dry cheeks. This doesn't sting or irritate my face in any way and it works so much better than the 8% lactic acid gel I was using previously. It's been almost a month now and 50% of the closed comedones are gone. I highly recomment this product.

    Wow! 2 shades lighter!
    This may be my favorite product in the world .. but it competes with Mandelic Toner, I use them both. I've been using them for about 2 months, and my skin has been clearer and less breakout prone. BUT the cumulative effect on my hyperpigmentation was very gradual. I noticed my foundation looking "dirty" and too dark the past couple weeks, and I went to get my color match redone, I needed to go 2 shades lighter in the same brand!!! This product has been wonderful for my skin. Highly recommend.

    On my never-ending journey to understanding my skin I came across this wonderful product via a beauty blogger (XO Vain). I have been a long sufferer of mild acne --blackhead ridden and hormonal breakouts were a constant presence, but not anymore! There has been a HUGE improvement in the texture of my skin and with increasing frequency of this peel, there is a noticeable decrease in blackheads. I've done about 3 peels by now but I believe with due diligence my skin will continue to become even better. I do recommend mixing a few drops of the Argan oil with a good moisturizer as the peel will leave you dry. I do not use any other AHAs/BHAs 24 hours before or after the peel. I can't remember the last time my skin has looked this good!

    Dry dry dry
    I used this for a month, maybe I didn't use it long enough because I didn't see results. I stopped using it because I couldn't stand how dry my skin would get. I feel like it aged me rather than the reverse. It didn't fade my hyper pigmentation, didn't help with my blemishes, pore size, blackheads. So, I didn't find it worth it to keep continuing. Quite disappointing. ****MUAC Comment: We're so sorry you didn't like this peel. Clients need to use it consistently for 6-8 weeks to see optimal results. Acids are, indeed, drying, so moisture is definitely needed both on the day of a peel, and between peels. Again, we're very sorry this product didn't work well for you.****

    Life-changing product
    Life changing! I was making progress on my skin with a gentle routine but knew I had a long way to go. I have to avoid most effective products because they are too harsh for my red, flaky skin, so I went for an inside-out approach with this peel. I am so impressed with the new texture of my skin, ZERO active pimples, reduction in any marks, and how smoothly my makeup goes on! I'm absolutely stunned at how affordable and effective this product is and I couldn't recommend it more. The sample has lasted me over a month and is half empty so even the small size is very cost effective. Beyond impressed.

    I've been using this product with a combination of the promegrenate and green tea moisturizer, cleanser and toner and hyaluronic acid and cucumber toner as well and it definitly improved my skin by more than 75%. I've been suffering with acne for 5 years and now its getting a lot better. Still have hyperpigmentation though, but I'm sure it will clear up in a few months with these products. I will soon start taking probiotics since I have IBS. I'm sure it will help. MUAC products are definitly worth buying. I am also really glad that they sell in canada and the shipping is faster than what they say when you order the products on their website.

    Dream peel
    I had known my skin liked mandelic acid from trying Philosophy's much more expensive "Mircodelivery Triple Acid Brightening Peel" pads (main acid is mandelic) and I was looking for a cheaper alternative. I bought the 1oz. version of this product and have used it 5x and it's still about half full. I use it every other week and leave it on for 5 minutes and then top it with Cerave in the tub (no rinsing) and have had no redness or flaking. I put it on a thin sheet of cotton and start around my nose, cheeks, forehead, rest of face, then a small reapply to neck, hands, and elbows. I have young (25yo) Caucasian skin and issues with mild rosacea around my nose and melasma and this stuff is AMAZING at reducing both. My skin looks so taut and fresh and my tone evened that I always get compliments after I use this!

    Smoother and brighter with no down time
    I tried a sample of the Mandelic Peel and had to buy a full sized bottle. It does exactly what it promises to do. I can't use AHA products that sit on my skin like moisturizers because I find them too drying and irritating. However this peel gives me all the upside that a good AHA will provide. I use it a few times a week.

    My first peel - I love this stuff!
    I was a little hesitant to try a peel on myself at home, but I'm glad I did. This feels very gentle, but at the same time, it gives clear results. The day after my first use, I had very light flakiness around my nose, but it was barely noticeable, and ever since then I would have to say I don't have noticeable peeling after use, but I still get the remarkable results. My hyperpigmentation along my jaw line has been fading quickly since starting this, and my overall skin tone seems to be more even. In general I feel like I have taken a few years off of my skin within just a few short weeks. I like that it is neutralized with just regular water, which is so easy to do, and the tingling sensation is not overwhelming when applied. I have already recommended this to a few friends. I feel so lucky I found this site!

    Bye bye Acne
    My skin type is oily, acne prone, scar prone, uneven, and sensitive. It's not only bad but its stubborn, nothing ever seems to work for long. I started using the mandelic acid peel about 3 weeks ago after suffering from a massive breakout. This peel worked a miracle! The pimples vanished within about 2-3 days and my skin looked a lot less dull. I can't say much about my hyperpigmentation yet but less acne does mean less scarring! I use the peel every four days and use the mandelic acid toner in between. I also use a fan brush instead of a q-tip, I find that to be much easier. I'm so happy to have found this product!

    I have been using the 25% Mandelic Acid peel 2 times a week for the past 4 weeks. I've definitely noticed that it has made a difference in complexion. In the past, I have tried everything from antibiotics to the oil cleansing method to clear my skin of my hormonal acne. So far, it seems like this is the only thing that has really made a difference. In addition to clearing up my skin, I've noticed that cysts that I've had for years are starting to get smaller and scars are beginning to fade. I'm extremely happy with the product and plan on sticking with it for a long time. I do get a little bit of stinging and peeling around my nose after I use it, but it's nothing that a bit of moisturizer can't fix. Love the product, very happy with the results.

    Major improvement in my skin
    I have been using the mandelic acid peel for 4 consecutive weeks; each peel 7 days apart. I have sensitive, acne prone, aging (hyperpigmentation and fine lines), combination normal/dry skin that has a lot of relatively recent acne scarring from one of the worst breakouts that I have ever experienced. This peel has made an amazing difference in only 1 month. I think the mandelic acid has made a big difference in reducing brown discoloration and smoothness/texture. If you have sensitive skin, be careful. I left the mandelic acid on for +-7 min and actually got minor frosting around the corners of my lips.. and experienced definate flaking and minor peeling for a few days after. The couple times I have left the acid on for 5 min I have not had issues with flaking or peeling. I do use a drop of argan oil after the peel on those sensitive areas. I am going to begin to try the peel every 4 days.... so far so good! I definitely recommend trying MUAC's mandelic acid peel, and their other products. I am happy with the no-frills packaging (actually I appreciate it-- easy to recycle) quality of the products are always excellent.

    Best Peel Ever!
    I love this peel it has given me my skin back! I started using this 1x a week with the serum and toner and it has eliminated my need for retinoids. I was always scared to stop Retin A but with this Peel and the Mandelic acid line my skin has become so clear. My acne will either just peel away or it will subside with no scarring! I don't flake a lot with this but I find gentle works just as well as the more deeper peels. This makes my skin bright and glow-ey it has also removed my brown spots from sun damage. I never thought those would go away. This is an amazing company and this is the best Mandelic acid I have looked and this is the highest % at the most reasonable price.Much love MUAC you rock!

    I've been using this peel twice a week for 6 weeks. I also use the Super C+E Serum. I haven't noticed great results in fading my spots, but my skin feels great. I don't feel the peel working, it doesn't 'tingle' or anything. I'm hoping it's still doing something! The serum definitely leaves your skin super smooth. Any insight on how to step it up would be awesome! ****MUAC Comment: Hi Jackie! Thanks for your post. Mandelic acid has little-to-no topical sensation, so whata you describe is normal. Typically, clients just feel a warming effect when the peel has been rinsed from the skin. We'd recommend moving-up to the 40% Mandelic Acid Peel. It sounds as if the 25% isn't quite strong enough for you. The 40% won't be too strong... but it should do the job for you. Thanks again!****

    Effective Product
    I purchased this along with the .3 Retinol Serum upon the recommendation of their customer service. I am very happy with the results from usage of this product. I have acne-prone skin that is combination and aging at the same time. I have used this 5 times over the course of a month and find that it brightens my skin immediately after use. It also diminishes my acne hyperpigmentation much quicker than other products I have used. I have stopped using a daily BHA since using this and I don't think I will need to add the BHA back into my routine anymore. I will continue to use this and also try the TCA in the future for my old deep acne scars.

    MELASMA, DISCOLROATION & DARK EYE CIRCLES CORRECTOR
    I have melasma/discoloration on my cheeks and jawline, so I purchased this peel at the advice of a MUAC customer svc rep. I've followed the directions exactly and have done 4 peels so far, each giving me better and better results. I now have patchy melasma on my cheeks where parts of it have disappeared while other parts still remain. Since the remaining areas are stubborn, I've ordered the 40% mandelic peel to combat it. TIPS: 1) you will feel burning the first time you apply the peel; 2) you will feel burning when you rinse the peel off with water. Don't worry, this is normal and it will subside after a few seconds. 3) you peel the most the 2nd day after, so keep that in mind when scheduling the peel. I did the peel on Fri and then stayed in the house the entire weekend. By Mon morning for work, I had sloughed away most of the peeling skin and could put on makeup w/o looking crazy. 4) this is a very gentle peel that corrects your skin over time, so don't expect amazing results right away. be consistent! 5) lastly, I used this on my under eye dark circles and it worked! Even though the skin in that area is delicate, it's pretty tough, as I had to layer the peel to get the skin to finally slough off.

The mandelic acid peel has been fantastic on the last remaining spots I have and really helped to speed up the rate of them coming to the surface. Will continue to use to try and fade some discolouration I have.

    Sensitive skin
    I heard of this product on youtube. I have rosacea and very sensitive skin. So when I tried the Mandelic acid I was a bit afraid it would damage my skin.. When I first tried the mandelic acid peel it really stings! Then I washed with baking soda and water to neutralize. My face was red like a tomato but so soft! The day after the redness was gone and my face was glowing. I have now used the peel 4 times and the other three did'nt sting so much as the first use. My skin feels smoother and my dark sunspots are lighter. Some of the red spots from my rosacea has faded. I will deffinitly keep on using this product.

    Very happy customer
    Not only is this peel amazing, but MUAC has some of the best customer service I have ever encountered! First, about the peel... I have dry/sensitive skin that freckles easily, despite spf. I bought this product to try to tamper down the freckles, and lessen the melasma on my upper lip. I use it every four days, and after only a couple weeks, my skin has improved drastically. It doesn't dry me out, or cause peeling, either. Just make sure to wash it off completely after (max) 5min. About MUAC... I received a damaged bottle and emailed them about it. I got a response within minutes, and they are sending me a new product. Amazing!!! THIS is how an internet business should be run... great products with fabulous service.

    So far pretty decent!
    When I first used this peel I didn't get any stinging sensation as I am used to with other peels. Naturally I taught it wasn't working but to my surprise my skin looks really pretty and smooth. It did not lighten the dark marks on my nasiolabial folds but it did reduce my pore size. I believe I will try it in the stronger concentration to see if I can get more of a "wow" factor.

    Amazing!
    Firstly, the customer service at MUAC is amazing. As a background, I have pretty reasonable skin, with acne flareups around the chin, mouth, and forehead and dark pores on my nose. I have a bad habit of popping pimples, so I also had a fair amount of scarring. This product helped with all of these!! Firstly, although I still get pimples, they dry up the day after I use the peel. It has significantly helped my hyperpigmentation and poor texture from acne scarring, and removes the layer of dead skin on my nose to make cleaning out my pores easier. Lastly, it has diminished the fine lines I was getting on my forehead! I'm 19, but I have already noticed many small fine lines on my forehead from expression. This peel helped! Amazing, I would definitely recommend.

    Have been using with fade serum for 3 weeks. Comfortable on my skin, no peeling. Seems to be slowly fading acne marks & hormonal pigmentation, skin also looks brighter. I think I'll get the higher strength later on as a maintenance product to use once a month.

    Solid product
    I originally purchased this peel because I felt my skin had built up a tolerance to the 10% glycolic acid solution I was using on my face after cleansing. It's a great peel. After cleansing with a 2% salicylic acid face wash, I put the tiniest drop in my hand and spread the product onto my damp face. I don't rinse it off, I just apply my moisturizer over top. (I don't think I would do this every day though. Once every three days is probably enough.) This peel also faded dark marks left on my legs and feet after I scratched my mosquito bites. The 1 once bottle lasted me about a year. Now I will purchase it again.

    Great Product, Skip the Argan Oil Add-on
    Great product for what it is. Am in my early 30s, and I got this to deal with mild-moderate skin laxity/texture. I've been alternating this with their radiance peels for a couple of weeks now; My skin has responded somewhat better to the 25% mandelic. Yes, it does what it says. The effect is apparent immediately after use - brighter-looking skin, clearer and smoother, slight improvement of undereye wrinkles. Makeup goes on like a dream and I can now skip foundation. Now, having said that, there is a catch. And it's quite a big one for me, having done a fair bit of research on the topic. These do require frequent use, and this is where the limitations come in. Firstly, while there's no advertised downtime, my skin does take on a "crepe-y" texture towards the end of the "every 4-7 days" recommendation. Probably not a concern for most, but it's going to be tricky if you need to look good consistently. Here comes the part that does relate to most of you. This concerns the frequency of use on the longterm. Even if it does purport to be mild and natural, no individual can tell for certain what a peel every week will do to your skin over the course of several years. My woman's instinct says 'I wouldn't do that'. All in all, I'm happy with this product and will continue to use it, but probably not as a standalone. Where this product would really shine, I'd think, is as a periodic boost in between your regular trip to the derma's. I can see it extending the "life" of those lasers/chemical peels. That's probably the sweet spot - max immediate and longterm benefits for the skin + saving money without risking longterm damage. Also another thing that might be worth mentioning - In order to gain max benefits/results from using this peel, I began taking oral collagen+hyaluronic acid supplements 3 weeks before usage.. so that my body would have some good skin regenerative material to work with. They're not cheap but I've used them before and seen what they can do. I also changed my diet 3 months prior to fully organic/unprocessed (the kinds that only have 1-3 ingredients). The peel just kind of allowed the combined effect to come through better. I hope this review has been useful in helping you set your expectations for the product. :) p.s. skip the Argan Oil add-on. It's closer to food grade and also crystalises into a paste in the fridge. My other oils stay liquid. If you're going to put oils on your skin, please go essential-oil grade. ****MUAC Comment: Thank you for your feedback. Our argan oil is cosmetic grade and should not be refrigerated. It is pure, 100% Virgin Argan Oil, cold pressed from Morocco. Thank you.****

    Mandelic Peel
    I don't think this product was strong enough for me. I didn't notice any difference I didn't feel anything when I put it on or after. I let my sister try it she said she felt tingling and made her skin softer. I used a few times and even tried it a couple times a week and noticed no change. I'm sure it works for some but not for me.

    I'm on my second sample bottle of this and I'm planning on getting the 40% next. I've been using this once to twice a week since 10/15. For reference I have combination dehydrated skin, large pores, prone to breakouts, with some discoloration and beginnings of wrinkles. My skin has never been this clear in my life and I'm in my 30s! It killed any acne I had and has made major improvement to my PIH. The fine lines I have on my forehead have diminished but not to the extent of the PIH. Thats why I'm trying a stronger peel next time. But I cannot recommend this enough, definitely a keeper in my skin care line up.

    My first peel
    So, this was my first peel. I was expecting to see dramatic changes because of the reviews on here, but I didn't. Now, before I go any further I MUST say that this is probably an awesome peel for people who don't have extreme acne and scarring like myself...It did give me a glow, however I need to focus on my acne issues FIRST so I recently ordered the 25% salicylic acid peel. Once my acne is under control I will definitely go back to the mandelic peel for maintenance. I am extremely happy with how fast my products have been shipped to my house. I will continue to try different products from MUAC until I find the ones that are right for me! :)

    Makes my face feel tighter immediately after the usage, but has done nothing for my dark spots and new acne. ****MUAC Comment: Thank you for your feedback, Mia. Because skin fading takes approx 6-8 weeks, the 2 dram sample is not going to provide enough product for you to see good results with your acne and dark spots. You would need to use it once weekly for about 8 weeks for best results. Thank you.****

    Perfect Peel for Sensitive Skin
    I have been a client of MUAC for several years and I decided to try the 25% Mandelic Acid Peel after having very irritated skin with both the Fade Peel and ProLight Peel. I have very sensitive skin and out of all of the peels I've tried including some Lactic Acid peels, this is by far the best peel for a weekly regimen. I can do the 25% Mandelic peel weekly and my skin isn't irritated or over processed. Instead the results are having very smooth skin with smaller pores, and acne is prevented. I do not actually peel with the 25% Mandelic so if I want a more aggressive peel where skin is flaking off, I will do the 12.5% TCA which makes me peel for about 5 days. The 25% Mandelic is weekly maintenance which significantly helps keep up the results in between my TCA peel which I do every 2 months. MUAC is an excellent company that provides superior products at very affordable prices. Plus the customer service is wonderful with quick responses, and shipping is very fast. I highly recommend purchasing the 25% Mandelic from MUAC as it has great results without irritation to the skin you might get from some other peels.

    Backstory: I've had an acne outbreak for the past couple months due to hormonal imbalances. I wasn't the best as taking care of my face either. So after some research, I decided to do a revamp in my habits. I started eating better, exercising everyday (except weekends), cut down on the whiskey consumption, and bought a whole bunch of facial care products as well as hormonal balancing oil pills (primrose oil). I have only used the acid peel thrice so far. Almost two weeks between the first and second time, and about 4 days between the second and third time, so I can't give an accurate account of this product and if my results are indeed a function of the acid, or of the several other factors. What I can say, is that the delivery was relatively quick, there was also a bonus item with my order :) I also ordered the Argan oil and it's awesome! I use it mainly in my hair. My skin has really come along these past few weeks. Of course i wash it twice a day, and at night with a facial brush. I do the cleanse, scrub, tone, serum, moisturize process twice a day. Pretty happy so far. I'm still far from my ideal skin, but from how things are going so far, I can tell I will see even more improvements in a month's time if I continue with my current processes.

Been purging huge pimples and I like it because I want it all out. I'm willing to purge until I'm clean and clear. My left cheek scars have faded but not sure if it because I have been using rose hip oil as a primer for a while but I know for sure this product cleans my skin good and it's gentle. I will write an updated review when my scars fade. People complaining about the purge wait it out because you want all that stuff out!

    First timer
    So I was pretty scared to do a chemical peel because I didn't want anything to go wrong, but it's super simple and effective !. I'm on my 3rd week and I have seen some results. I shower first , then apply with a q-tip/cotton ball and let sit for about 1-2 mins ( I do face , neck, chest, shoulder) then I hop back in the shower and rinse with soapy warm water really well. Afterwards I apply tea tree oil or Shea butter and those help with my skin improvements. I'm going to order the 50% tomorrow because I'm ready for more faster results. This a great product and I'm African American and it isn't harsh on my skin.

    First Try - So Far, So Good!
    I received this peel yesterday and tried it for the first time last night. It started tingling right away, but it wasn't uncomfortable at all and it subsided really quickly. Left it on for the full 5 minutes and rinsed it off. My skin felt tight right away, but when I used my normal nighttime moisturizer, it was better. I can feel a couple of areas where my skin is rough - I'm assuming those might just be problem areas and with regular use of the peel, they will become smooth. My face was still feeling tight and dry this morning when I woke up, and I noticed that it felt much drier than normal after I washed it at the gym after my workout. I moisturized right away with the gel in my gym bag, and when I got home, I used my nighttime lotion again, even though it was morning. It's been about 4 hours since I moisturized, I've got a couple of areas that suddenly feel tight and dry, but that's easily controlled with a little bit of moisturizer. I'm guessing it's just my skin reacting to the first time use. It feels like it will settle down as I continue to use it regularly. I plan to start with once a week peels until my skin adjusts. I think next time, I'll slap on a honey mask as soon as I rinse the peel off and see if that makes a difference. I will try and update after a couple more uses.

    A Must Have
    So thankful to have discovered this little gem of a face product. When my favorite Glycolic peel pads were discontinued, I wasn't able to find a replacement AHA product that didn't give me a secondary reaction after the initial glow (zillions of microscopic, uniform in size but barely perceptible bumps that felt like lizard skin). I eventually gave up on using acids and tried to live with blah skin. Then I started googling. I react to almost every skin product - I get red just from tactile pressure - and I can use this product. It does sting when you wash it off (or use the Post Peel Neutralizer) but it disappears in seconds. If I don't use it regularly (along with my other MUAC products) my skin starts to look and feel congested. Ick.

    The condition targeted is forehead acne and scarring. Our teen began with Blemish Buster Cleanser and Mandelic Serum which was a great start but did not eliminate the issue. After completing one course of those we changed the serum to the Mandelic Acid Peel 25% and are seeing significant improvement after 4 applications. We will complete this course and decide if this is the maintenance or if we need the next acid peel. This peel has been amazing and our teen has been amazed. This is the first product that has had any impact on the scarring.

    Definite results with no downtime!
    This peel was the first I had ever tried in my life, let alone at home. My extremely reactive, fair, severely acne prone skin responds so well to this product. After using this one of my good friends came to visit and commented on how much my acne had improved. This peel exfoliates just the right amount by removing the dried, cruddy, dead skin while leaving behind no redness or flaking. It is so gentle while being so effective. This is my 'go to' peel, used in conjunction with the pH Prep Solution, whenever I have somewhere special to go or having photos taken. It clears up my skin while leaving it so soft. I also use the 40% Mandelic when I need a little more exfoliation and not having pics or events coming up. Thanks again MUAC!

    I just got this in the mail...I am in my 40's looking for this to solve my hormonal acne and melesma. I have been using the mandelic acid toner on myself as well as my 19 yr old son's face..worked pretty well so that encouraged to advance to the 25% mandelic peel..this peel does sting a bit left it on for 7 minutes...did notice tightness after I washed my face...will keep you posted on the results...I am african american female with combination skin as well..I have noticed others mention this has helped their crows feet....I have crows feet is this put under their eyes to tighten the skin? Or am I misinterpreting where this peel is being put to cure crows feet?

    Fast yet gentle results
    I've been using for a month now, once every 4 days in conjunction with the mandelic acid serum. After first use, my skin definitely felt a lot smoother and more radiant looking just after one use! It's been a month and my skin tone is more even and the scarring I had is fading. (I had scarring from constantly picking at my face, it mostly covered with makeup but was definitely noticeable when I wasn't wearing any.) can't wait to see what the next month brings!

    Still unsure
    This review should not scare anyone from getting this peel, with that being said the first time i used this i broke out a lot but in places that i usually break out anyways so I'm guessins it's pulling the bad stuff up the surface and hopefully it will clear up after consistent use. If you're not prone to break out you can probably use it to get a monthly glow or weekly and i love that it doesn't actually peel so no down time. I will give another review in 2 months. ****MUAC: This peel will indeed cause some purging, Laurie. It should clear within a few weeks.****

    This is my third bottle of the 25 percent Mandelic Acid. I cannot be without this. My skin had done a 360 and the texture and clarity as quite improved. This has replaced Retin A for me which no matter how I used it never agreed with my skin. I do a mandelic peel once a week and it is the perfect amount of exfoliation with zero irritation.

    This was my first order with MUAC and not being familiar with the products I was unsure as to the strength to order. As a long time user of antioxidants, glycolic and salacylic OTC products my skin was somewhat accustomed to the effects of those products. Still I choose the safe course and ordered the 25% Mandelic Acid peel, 30% retinol serum and a sample of the apple stem cell serum. With the first time use of the Mandelic Acid 25% peel I had very little sensation of anything going on and I left it on 15 minutes instead of 5. I had very slight flaking but was impressed with the great texture it left me with. I love the smooth texture of the Retinol Serum it makes my skin very silky and firm. I could not register any effects from the Apple stem cell serum. I had hoped for eyebrow growth, bug it may still happen yet. I'll give it more time. I have some acne pit scars on my chin and am considering a stronger type acid for spot peels for that. All in all, I love your products and am trying to decide what to order next. I am 67 years old and don't have a problem with wrinkles but need a product to fir and lift around the eyes and the scar problems. Keep up the good work

    I was having cystic acne and a dermatologist recommended Accutane. I did not like the side effects so I looked for something else. This has helped ALOT and my skin feels soft. Unfortunately it did nothing for my hyperpigmentation which I just ordered lactic acid to hopefully help with that.

    1.) Customer service is fantastic and I always a appreciate a bonus sample 2.) This is the most gentle peel I've ever used. My face got a little warm and flushed, but that went away after rinsing. 3.) My combo skin is fry and tight the next day, but rich moisturizer mostly takes care of it. 4.) NOTHING has helped clear up my skin as well as my long term acne scars the way this peel has. I truly see a difference in the size and duration of my breakouts and the darkness of my hyperpigmentation. I will definitely continue to use this peel. Holy grail product!

    I have only been using this product for a couple weeks, and since you can only use this peel once a week that doesn't feel like very long... but so far I like it a lot! I do notice that my skin is very exfoliated after use, with smoother texture, but the peel is not irritating to my skin, and I have only noticed a little bit of actual peeling. I have some irregular pigmentation and I had been hoping that this peel would take care of it, but I guess that will just take time.

    Gentle peel
    I was pretty nervous about trying an acid peel, even though my skin is usually not super-sensitive. I've been using it for about a month now, and peeling every 4 days. I've never had any flaking, but within the first two peels I noticed all the small bumps on my chin had super reduced in size, which was unexpected. Waiting to see how it'll work on my dark spots--I'm naturally really tan and every pimple/kind of pimple I get leaves a mark, so hopefully it helps fade those a bit in the future.

    This is a wonderful mild peel. It was my first time using a chemical peel, and it was a very positive experience. This 25% Mandelic Acid Peel was mild, with not much burn, but it made a nice change in my skin. It evened out my skin tone, and gave my skin a nice glow. I use it once a week for 5 minutes each time. I use it on my face, neck and chest (avoiding the eye area, of course). I expect to get 6 to 8 uses out of this bottle.

    Great for Dry Skin
    I have struggled with acne, dry skin, and extreme sensitivity since adolescence. This peel is a god send! I use this peel every four days, for 5 minutes. My cheeks are glowing! Be sure to use a physical/ mineral sunscreen in conjunction with this peel, as it does make you very photosensitive, and a mineral blocker will help slow any discoloration. I have been using this for less than a month and already 5-year old acne scars are beginning to fade.

    Incredible!
    I've used all kinds of skincare from all kinds of brands, but this peel has given me better results in minutes than I've gotten using other products for years. The change in my skin has been significant. I was new to peels, and decided to try this one first. It was perfect, gentle, yet effective. It has helped reduce some hormonal acne I've recently developed. After five of these peels, my skin looks smooth. My complexion is so clear and bright that I no longer wear makeup- my skin actually looks better without it! Some of my fine lines (11s) have disappeared completely. This peel leaves my skin plump and firm. I just can't say enough good things about it. I've now moved up to the Mandelic 40% peel, but the 25% is the perfect place to start. I will be recommending this to everyone!

    Great for Acne
    I have used the Mandelic acid peel every 4 days for a month and i am very pleased with the results. First it is not like other peels it doesn't really peel much but the antibacterial properties are wonderful for my skin. I have had mild acne for 25 years. I have hormonal breakouts. When i noticed a few large pimples starting i used this peel for the first time. It seemed to not irritate the area like other peels would. The large pimple ran its course much much faster than normal. I have to say that at first i had some breakouts when i started using the peel. Currently i am using this peel and lactic acid and the results have been great.

    3.5 stars - Overall good results
    I've been using the Mandelic Peel once a week for about 4 weeks. Overall, there is a general improvement in my skin - it looks much tighter and glowy. Specifically however, I haven't seen as dramatic an improvement in my hyperpigmentation or acne as I hoped. I think I'm going to bump up to twice a week for 7 mins at a time. I've been using BP on my skin for years and years and I think 3 mins once a week of a mild acid isn't going to make a dent in my skin problems! I'm also going to supplement this with the fade peel and see how that works. ***MUAC COMMENT: Please consider our 40% Mandelic Acid Peel as a future purchase, Robyn. It was formulated for skin types like yours, that need something a bit stronger. Thank you for your feedback!***

    Mixed Feelings
    I've used the Mandelic Acid peel maybe 6 or 7 times now (began with 1 peel the first week and then bumped up to twice a week because I've exfoliated daily for the past several years). I've definitely noticed that my red post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation has improved as has my skin's overall tone (some is a year old, some quite recent). Every time I use it, I love how soft, balanced, and hydrated it feels. However it hasn't had much of an effect on existing acne, nor has it seemed to prevent breakouts from happening. I'll continue to use it to generally refresh the look of my skin, combat unevenness in tone over the long term, and prevent/reduce sun damage on my face and neck.

    I started using the 25% Mandelic Acid Peel and 50% Glycolic Acid Peel the first week in January 2014. I'm in my late 30's and started having horrible acne on my cheeks which left me with bad dark scarring which makeup was barely covering. I tried everything you can think of to try and get this acne under control and my teenage daughter suggested I try these products from Make up Artist choice. Five months later my skin is clear I don't even have to wear make-up I just wish I would have taken before and after photos, these at home peels really work I saw an improvement after the first use. I use the Glycolic Acid once a month and the Mandelic Acid once a week. I still get a blemish here and there but nothing close to what I was experiencing when I first started using the peels. Five stars is not enough I give it 100's of stars absolutely love it!!!!

    Mandelic Acid: Great stuff
    I've had pore problems my entire adult life. Regular facials, peels, faithfully washing my face morning and PM; using a clarisonic...all help. Mandelic acid is my most recent and best solution. It has made a huge difference. I put a few drops of it in my facial cleaner when I wash my face at night, and use my clarisonic. I have also applied it as a peel once a week for 3 weeks. So far I am really impressed with how well it works, and it's gentle. I have had some minor peeling after using it like a peel and am hoping the peeling will stop after a while.

Also the down time is pretty good. I am only peeling above my lip which i concentrate on because I have melasma in that area. I dont see any improvement for that yet but I will keep using so fingers crossed! I use the Bellevolve Advance Repair for after because it helps with healing. I do like that product as well. Not oily at all. *note, I also use gly-luronic serum as well so that also helps with pimples.
