I was excited to try this serum since I like chemical exfoliants and wanted to try something more gentle than glycolic or lactic acid. It is a transparent liquid with a quite light consistency and no scent. At application, it somehow feels oily but absorbs quickly. The packaging is pretty typical for The Ordinary, a dark glass bottle with a dropper. The serum provides light exfoliation and …Read more

I do not use this all over my face but mostly just on the blackheads and whiteheads on my nose. It feels oily going on but dries to a not-oily finish. A little goes a long way. The blackheads are still there but smaller and lighter; much less noticeable. Usually, I use it over Azelaic Acid 15% and have only had one time that it caused skin peeling in the nasal troughs. It really makes the …Read more

This did and didn't work for me.
Initially I purged big time.
The only good thing about this is that it helped with closed comedones and keeping my skin clear for the most part, but not always.
Other than that and the worst thing about this, is the fact that it made my skin flake like CRAZY!!! I had never experienced something like that in my life. I couldn't even put makeup …

I purged pretty bad after 1 week of using this. But the acne isnt cyctic, they were the little whiteheads that fall out by itself if you dont touch it. I did get a couple spots that did hurt for the first day to the touch but do not stick around too long. It didnt help my closed comedones or scarring but i only used it for 2 weeks and gave up. The dryness and flaking was very bad to the point i …Read more

On a month-long travel without any physical or chemical exfoliators, my skin was peeling (from dry air) and clogged from lack of exfoliation. Having had good experience with the mandelic acid from Naruko, I ran to the Deciem store in Munich and grabbed the Mandelic Acid + HA. I've since used it for a week and my T-zone area is significantly less clogged and no longer peely (with some help …Read more

I really like The Ordinary and how you can customize and create your own skincare regimen with their products. I was very interested in the Mandelic Acid 10% + HA because I have seen mandelic acid in some exfoliants but have not seen it as the main ingredient in other serums. I have been using this in place of my other exfoliant (Paula's Choice Advanced AHA 10% Smoothing Treatment) on days when I use other treatment masks, if my skin is feeling particularly sensitive that day, or if I will be outside a log the following day. I like that mandelic acid is more gentle and provides a little less exfoliation than many other AHA or BHA's. This would also be a good exfoliant serum for someone who is new to exfoliants or uses a retinol cream. Overall I like this serum, it's …Read more
