SKIN TYPE #4
OILY / COMBINATION / SENSITIVE / OCCASIONAL BREAKOUTS
Red, combination and sensitive skin prone to breakouts requires a careful blend of pore-cleaning BHAs, along with healing ingredients like Willowherb extract and natural Elderberry to deliver gentle blemish-clearing benefits without leaving the skin feeling tight, dry or irritated. Your skin will look and feel calm and balanced with a newly refined clarity and smoothness.

What is mandelic acid?
Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from bitter almonds, but is more gentle.
Mandelic acid’s antibacterial properties are extremely helpful in treating acne. It also helps to regulate sebum production and in turn decrease the occurrence of breakouts. Mandelic acid has even been shown to benefit those who suffer from cystic acne.
Prolonged use of mandelic acid is safe for your skin, and will have rejuvenating benefits. If you have experienced irritation with other acid treatments, mandelic acid is the best option for you as the side effects are much lower.
