Rating a MUST have
Skin type: African American, Oily, Sensitive, Acne-prone When I compare my cotton ball after using the mandelic acid toner vs. using any other toner, its astonishing! This one really cleans the gunk out of my face-- its quite gross how dirty and filled with dead skin my cotton ball is after use. This toner is seriously a must have if you want to keep your skin clear and spot free (which you do)

It would be this toner..I just wish I had discovered it a long time ago.

Rating An AHA I can actually use!!
After disastrous attempts with glycolic acid--even at a 5% concentration--I used some Google-fu to see if there was an AHA I could use. My concerns: Uneven tone/texture, closed comedones, enlarged pores on nose and inner cheeks (thanks for that, Biore pore strips), combination skin. I'd been using a 2% salicylic acid BHA for my acne and closed comedones, and while it worked it left my dry cheeks and chin REALLY dry. I learned that mandelic acid A) is similar to a BHA in that it can cut through oil, but B) isn't drying. After even more extensive Google-fu, I found MUAC's 5% mandelic toner. Since mandelic is the gentlest of the Big Three of AHAs (glycolic and lactic being the other two), I figured it was worth a good shot. First impressions: Holy alcohol, Batman! The alcohol in this toner is damn near overwhelming. I used it for a couple of weeks and saw minor improvement in my skin, but I knew that mandelic works very slowly due to its large molecule structure, so I kept using it. But it was also drying me out a bit, and I suspected the alcohol content to be a culprit. I contacted MUAC and asked about an alcohol-free option. The rep I spoke to explained that mandelic acid dissolves best in alcohol and has a better delivery because of it, and they recommended their hyaluronic acid serum to use after the AHA has set in. I ordered a sample, tried it three nights in a row...and voila! No more issues with the dryness from the alcohol! Now that I've been using this toner for, oh, over a month now (and alternating with the 10% serum, which homygod holy grail), I am massively in love with this combination. My skin is free from closed comedones for the first time in years (I always had at least ONE on my forehead), and my skin is slowly but surely improving in tone, and the texture is now soft and supple. I'm going to start using the toner in the morning and the serum at night (I have a fabulous sunscreen, don't worry!), and I expect to have even greater results from it. Soon, I'll feel comfortable moving up to chemical peels, and I am REALLY EXCITED FOR THAT. Highly recommended!! I will never be without my MUAC mandelic toner and serum. <3

the best thing ever.ive searched for so many skin care products before only to end up throwing them away since nothing really, NOTHING has ever worked on my cystic scne except this toner.in two months it lightened up my acne scars, prevented me from any single breakout which i used to get each and every day of my life.now i dont have even a single pimple (used to have cystic ones) and im so proud to say my skin has gotten so much better that i could already afford to look at myself in the mirror without any feeling of disgust.this toner got back my self esteem which i have lost for 5 years and now im slowly getting it back.this is best for acne, acne scars, post inflammatory , rosacea and anti aging.i use this day and night now with a gentle skin cleanser.and that's all i have for my routine along with my olay eye cream.ithank God for MUAC for letting them create this wonderful product.i know for sure i would forever need this.please please never change the formula and never ever stop making this miracle cure.

Rating Another very positive review...
Just logging in to set up autoship for this product. I'm also not one to write reviews, but the positive reviews you read below line up with my experience. I'm 54 yo and I tend to develop those annoying flaky, red patches and dark spotting as a result of foolish sun worshiping in my teens. I've done TCA peels, and am a loyal Retin-A user. I have been using this product 1x per day for about 120 days; I see gradual firming, clearing, refining of my skin. I'm thinking I will not need to do more aggressive maintenance TCA peels as often. Like so many MUAC products, an unbeatable value!!

I love this product because it's so light. It really keeps my skin clear of any pesky breakouts with no downtime or redness at all. I can put it on under my moisturizer and go to bed. Also, even though I clean my skin thoroughly at the end of the day, I'm always amazed at how much more dirt this toner grabs. I love this product! Gentle, but very effective.

This Mandelic Acid toner has become a necessary staple in my skincare regime. It fully cleans my face - the excess of whatever I wasn't able to wash of by washing my face. It seems there is always more - when using this stuff. It cleans out your skin, pores and makes your skin smooth, soft and silky. I love it. I can't do without it! My skin is a lot cleaner/clearer now.

Rating Wow. Wow. Wow.
First off let me start by saying that this is the first review I have ever done for any product I have ever bought! Usually I just read what other people have experienced, but my hope is that I can reach at least one person browsing this site & give them the confirmation they need to buy this!!! When I turned 24 I began to battle acne for this first time in my life. I tried everything to get it under control. The frustrationn from trying so many different products had me emotionally, socially and financially drained. I worked in a salon for awhile and even tried the designer brands they sold, but it was just a temporary fix or would leave me with hyperpigmentation that was just about as worse as the adult acne! Finally, one day MUAC popped up on my news feed. I researched the site and saw that almost everything product has 4/5 stars. I also couldn't believe the prices and the fact that you could buy samples to try out certain items. After much deliberation I decided to go with the Mandelic Toner due to its acne fighting, anti aging and skin balancing properties. I basically noticed a difference right away. My skin felt smoother and more conditioned after one use. I have been using this toner for about two weeks now and have noticed a huge acne scar on my cheek fading right before my eyes! My makeup is also going on so much smoother as well. I also didn't get any hormonal acne during my cycle either & that's a first!!! I am so blown away with this product and this company that I want to shout it from the mountaintops!!!! Thank you MUAC!!! You have a winner with this one!!!!

Rating Works for Acne
I have always suffered from acne. I went on Accutane years ago and it got rid of approx 90% of my acne, but a little bit of persistent acne came back. Since, I have spent a lot of money on products and professional treatments that resulted in mediocre results and I still had the consistent acne problem. I have been using this product for a few weeks now and it has been clearing up my face. I am amazed. I expect that my face will be totally clear real soon. It is 95% there- I am just waiting on some spots that are in the healing process. I cannot believe it. I always had to wear make-up and I am down to using BB Cream and just placing foundation on little spots on my face to cover until they are gone. I also noticed that this toner provides extra cleansing, removing any make-up or whatever your cleanser didn't quite get. The cleanser is a bit drying, but my skin seems to be getting used to it now and I use moisturizer to help. The products I have been using are the Green Tea Cleanser and this Mandelic Acid Toner (along with the Transforming Anti-Aging Eye Repair for my eyes) morning and night; the Green Tea Moisturizer in the morning and the BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream at night. I love all these products!

Rating I'll be getting more of this...
I really like this toner, a friend and I decided to both order it and try it at the same time. I noticed softer skin and fewer pores after my first week. This toner also helps keep acne away. I had been using 2.5% Benzyl Peroxide and weekly lactic acid peels but this toner has kept the acne away so well I was able to get off the BP completely with about the same amount of break outs as I had on the BP(significantly reduced compared to if I did nothing). spots seem to heal faster and in general my face feels much more under control. It did make my skin dry and peel some, but with exfoliation and a moisturizer I'm able to keep this under control. I've been using this morning and night. I alternate the vitamin c and e serum for day and the apple stem cell serum at night. My face is getting better every day. I really appreciate this toner!! I've recommended it to quite a few friends. Thanks, MUAC!!

This was one of my first purchases from MUAC and I must say I am very pleased! This toner removes all traces of any makeup that may be left and it's helped clear of my acne that was caused from taking oral steroids for a sickness. I will purchase this when I run out but I have a feeling it's going to last a while. My face did go through a period of dryness and then I just used it every other night until my skin adjusted and now I have no issues at all with dryness.

I will try my best to make this short, throw all your toners/products away and let’s start with the Mandelic toner OMG. The Mandelic line itself it’s amazing, currently expecting a baby boy and my skin look and feel flawless. Make sure you check with your doctor First, personally I got the green light. My pores are smaller my skin tone is even, winkles free, i rarely use makeup. Funny thing, my husband is now all over my products :) have to admit since then, he’s skin is looking flawless with no razor bumps geez I could go one with that line on how amazing it is for both of us. You know that feeling you get when you have to call customer service, you have to be prepared to spend hours on the phone follow by a chamomile tea to calm the nerves WELL WELL WELL not with MUAC. You can call customer service things gets taking care off within 10 minutes you send them an email asking for advice i get a reply within 2 hours. I don’t know how can they provide such a Top notch, First class ,VIP service all I can say is I LOVE YOU at the end. Currently using the Mandelic 25 percent peel, Mandelic toner, Mandelic 10 percent serum also the PMD and the Argan oil. Got the 8 oz body peel but did not work as great as the Mandelic 25 percent peel on my body maybe its my skin . I got sensitive/dry skin also African American :)

Rating More than "just" a toner!
I used to think toners were to be used to remove any possible cleanser residual, but this toner is no joke! It not only removes any residual, but it really is an intergral part of any good skin care program. Whenever I use this toner, I feel a wonderful warming sensation to let me know that it is working, and I have a beautiful matte look. This toner exfoliates every time I use it thanks to the Mandelic Acid (derived from Almonds), the Malic Acid (derived from Apples) and other great ingredients. I have done a series of TCA peels, and this product has done a very good job in maintaining my results and improving my skin issues...excessive oiliness, rough texture, clarity and occasional breakouts.

I'm not sure if it's great for every day use for people with dry-combination skin. It dries my skin a bit around my nose, in a way that some products can. So I use it a couple of days a week. Leaves my skin very bright, clean, and it really does minimize pores. Very happy to have found this product.

I am a 37 black/Caribbean female who suffered with acne breakouts and occasional cystic acne. I use the toner in conjunction with the Mandelic Peel. When I am about to use the Mandelic Chemical Peel, I give my face a 48hr rest from the toner before and after the treatment as the chemical combination may too strong for the face (advised by the MUAC Esthetician). The toner has done an amazing job improving and maintaining the clarity/texture of my skin. Also, I am experiencing less breakouts. In order to see results, you have to be consistent with this product. There is a slight stinging sensation when applying the product, but it quickly dissipates and your face feel and looks clean. If you have not cleansed your face in a long time, be ready to use some cotton pads, because it does a terrific job with cleaning. I have oily to combination skin and sometimes it can leave my face a little dry. Using a good moisturizer will alleviate the situation. In conjunction with the Mandelic/Salicylic Peel, this is the first time I have found a product that actually works without breaking the bank.
