Very gentle exfoliator that helps remove dead skin cells. Great for dry skin. My teen is using this too 2 to 3 times a week to help diminish pimple marks. Our routine includes rice toner, klairs vit c, klairs vit e and all over lotion.
This is unbeatable when combined with By wishtrend's Vit C. My morning routine is simplified now, consisting of just these two steps plus sunscreen. Highly recommend for fuss-free and effective results.
I've tried several acid products over the years but they all left me red/irritated ... FOR DAYS!!! I gave them up long ago. I've had such great results recently with Korean skincare products that when I ran across the 5% mandelic acid, I was willing to give it a try. I started off slowly just to make sure my skin could handle it but I now use it every evening w/no irritation, redness, pain, etc. I find that it works best w/my Pyunkang Yul cotton pads. It leaves my skin soft, and I notice any products I use afterwards are much more effective.

I can't use most AHA products anymore. They set off my eczema badly. However, this mandelic acid toner is gentle enough but still fairly effective, plus doesn't smell nearly as bad as some other acids. Don't expect it to be as strong as the likes of glycolic acid, however. If your skin is tough and you like a strong exfoliant, this is likely not going to do enough for you.
We are so happy to hear that you have found an AHA product that agrees with your skin! Thank you for your review of By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water.
Love this toner so far. It is tingly for the first couple minutes after applying, which is really nice. I’m hoping this helps with the texture of my skin and smooths it out more. I’ve only been using it for a couple weeks, but like the changes I’ve noticed in my skin so far.
I just bought two bottles as back-up to the bottle I purchased in March, so I guess that means I really like this! I have sensitive combo/dry skin. This is an effective exfoliant for the dry areas and congested pores. Love that it also contains soothing ingredients. When needed I can use it in my AM and PM routines without issue. It does tingle when applied, but does not irritate my skin one bit. Love that I can use it with the Cosrx Poreless Power Liquid (mandelic first, PPL second) as an exfoliating, pore tightening duo.
