Mandelic Acid

Recommended Posts

I am so impressed with the results I am getting after just 3 weeks of using MaMa Lotion. I would like to up my usage to twice daily instead of nightly. Unlike BP, I am not finding it too drying at all. No redness or burning and skin is clearing super fast - from 10-12 active acne to almost none (just past scarring). I have eased myself into it with just every other night for the first 2 weeks and nightly for the past week. I think my skin is ready to try twice daily.

Does anyone else use twice daily and would this frequency be safe to use?

I've used MaMa twice daily from the get go. I'm only on day 4 right now.

I guess I've been really cautious because of what happened to me with BP even though I eased myself into that - my face was one big burning, red, flaking, pimply mess and I was scared of going through that again. Another member recommended I take it really easy with the MaMa but it's nothing on BP and so much more effective for me. I am ready to go twice daily - thanks for the reassurance.

I wonder if NuCelle is more effective than MaMa or are they basically the same thing? I am prepared to try NuCelle if it is a superior product.

Which Nucelle product are you using, Jenstar? The ones with the marine extract actually contain a very comedogenic ingredient (algae extract). Algae is on every single list that I have seen of ingredients that acne-prone persons should avoid. The directions on NuCelle

Mandelic Serum 10% indicated twice a day usage. The website will say how often to use them.

I myself like MaMa lotion. I have not tried NuCelle products. The MaMa also has algae extract. Hmmmm.

Well I am actually not using NuCelle. I use MaMa and have heard a lot of good things about both. I am prepared to stick with MaMa but if anyone else can say NuCelle is better (and they've tried both), then I will change.
