This is hands down, my HG cleanser. Despite only the 3% mandelic acid, its brilliant at both minimizing my pores and chemically exfoliating my face. I've been using this alongside my Vivant 3% mandelic acid toner and both have done amazing jobs at clearing up any breakouts and keeping my skin even, smooth and clear. Not my favorite scent (none of the products are particularly nose-pleasing), but its brilliant nonetheless.

This product is a seemingly very nice cleanser. It feels wonderful, smells wonderful, and is gentle. Herein is the problem: it doesn't clean very well at all. Just using this cleanser without a cloth, I cannot make my mineral sunscreen budge, just a complete waste for this. In addition, mandelic acid doesn't do a thing for my skin, so I can't vouch for any miracles in managing acne with this product either. I also doubt the ph of this cleanser is low enough for the mandelic acid to be effective. I say this because when I use Vivant mandelic serum, I can feel the acid (and alcohol and other ingredients on my skin) that is common for me with AHAs, but with this I don't feel anything. To use this up, I use it in the morning when I haven't had anything on my skin the night before and it works well for that. It's just too expensive for its utility for me, so I can't really recommend this cleanser.
