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

You should definitely give mandelic acid a try if you struggle with acne as its antibacterial property is effective at treating and preventing breakouts. The benefits are endless where this great AHA is concerned.

Fantastic cleanser!

I really like this cleanser but not a Holy Grail product. It makes my skin softer, clearer and overall in a better condition that previously. I find the packaging preferable to a pump bottle so very happy with the tube. It definitely doesn't get makeup off but that's not a huge problem since I double cleanse. I will continue to buy this but not exclusively, will also try other cleansers on the market!

Great for oily skin

I loved this when my skin was oilier, I feel a slightly though it made my pores smaller, and made my skin more glowy. I did experience a slight purging, but I’m used to it and kind of expect it with clay and/or charcoal masks. I don’t use it as much anymore because my skin is more dry these days as I’ve started using retinol.
