What is the best Mandelic Acid?

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about trying Mandelic Acid, but I'm not sure which one to go with. I heard about Mama's lotion and Nucelle and a few others.

What are your suggestions and experiences with Mandelic Acid??

Thanks for your help!

I like NuCelle. I think the Mama lotion is stronger. It has mandelic acid plus something else that I can't remember.

Many people say MaMa Lotion is too strong since it is a 20% formula composed of 10% malic and 10% mandelic acid. I used the NuCelle 10% mandelic serum and it works great! A few weeks of breaking out because it "brings all impurities to the surface" but then afterwards it makes all pimples disappear fast.

In your opinion, do you think Mandelic is better than Salicylic Acid against the prevention of blackheads?

Ive been on SA for quite a while now and while i have noticed a great decline in pustules i have seen an increase in blackheads centered on my nose (bad times). I am thinking mandelic might be a good choice for my stubborn blackheads, do you agree?

I use Neostrata oil control gel which contain Mandelic acid for mild pimple. My skin is pretty sensitive so I'm sure that MaMa lotion and NuCelle mandelic serum will cause over dryness on my skin.
