Its my first time using a Mandelic Acid in my routine, which is a form of (AHA) a chemical exfoliant. I do enjoy both physical and chemical exfoliators but now I enjoy using the latter as it penetrates deeply into our skin. It’s been a month since I started using this in my routine, using it max of thrice a week. First thing I notice is the acidic scent, a bit strong for some but it’s not bothering in my opinion. It does tingle a bit when I first used it, very tolerable as for my experience. It has an initial tacky feel but disippates after a while, skin feels soft and bouncy afterwards. After using in constantly I saw a difference with my skin texture, some hyperpigmentations lighten a bit too, skin looks healthy in general. Always remember to use this at night only and never skip your sunscreen in the morning. Overall I really enjoyed using this one and now it’s my go to exfoliator at the moment.
