Is there a trick to applying this mandelic serum?


I just received my first bottle of mandelic acid, I went with the Vivant brand 15%. It comes as a liquid with a dropper. I've used the paulas choice BHA's for a long time and they spread easily. This mandelic acid has the consistency of water though. Is there a trick to applying it? It's $70/oz and it feels like I need to use a lot of it because it absorbs into my skin so quickly. Before I even have a chance to spread it. Is there a trick to it or are you guys using a bottle every few weeks?

Maybe I should go with another brand if there's one with more of a gel consistency.
