Shop Mandelic Acid


While not as well-known as some other AHAs, mandelic acid is definitely not an exfoliant you want to sleep on. Like other AHAs, mandelic acid will chemically smooth and polish your skin to create a more radiant complexion. But, this AHA is also much gentler than it’s cousins, which makes it suitable for people who prefer more gentle exfoliation.

What does mandelic acid do?

Like other AHAs, mandelic acid will exfoliate your skin to treat irregular skin pigmentation, acne, and fine lines or wrinkles. It accelerates cell turnover and helps to brighten the skin by removing dead skin cells. Cosmeceutical mandelic acid can also strengthen and firm the skin by promoting the production of collagen, which slows down as we age.

Who should use mandelic acid?

Mandelic acid is the MVP ingredient in all sorts of cosmeceutical beauty products, from serums and lotions to creams and peels. At Adore Beauty, we have lots of options for you to try. Mandelic acid is less likely to irritate the skin compared to other AHAs, which makes it beneficial for all skin types.
Mandelic acid and acne

Noticeable difference

Noticeable improvement and reduction in pore size especially on my cheeks. Pleasant smell and didn't react as it wasn't a harsh cleanser to switch to.
