By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water is a very gentle exfoliating liquid that features Mandelic Acid, perfect to use on a cotton pad after cleansing. Fragrance-free and alcohol-free, which I love! I did not have any irritations or redness after using it every evening. Sometimes I even added other exfoliating serums on the top, when I wanted a little bit more exfoliation. I really like it and I have already purchased a backup.
The ingredient list is short but nice. The main ingredient is Mandelic Acid 5%, very gentle and soothing acid that exfoliates and has some antibacterial properties. The molecule of Mandelic Acid is very large and hence it does not penetrate the skin as deep as other AHAs. Mandelic acid is used to treat hyperpigmentation, dull and uneven skin tone. It can also be used to prevent acne due to its antibacterial properties There is also Licorice root, Centella Asiatica and Sweet Almond Extracts – good antioxidants. Additionally, this product has Houttuynia Cordata Extract – acne-fighting ingredient.
Acne info: This product should be okay to use for people who have acne issues. Mandelic acid has antibacterial properties and it helps to clear the skin. There are only three ingredients that may potentially trigger acne for some few people: PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Butylene Glycol and Sorbitan Sesquioleate.
