Hi everyone, I'm thinking about trying mandelic acid product by Nucelle to try and improve my skin overall but mainly my rosacea as the 10% glycolic I'm using at the moment seems / might be causing my rosacea to worsen.

Has anyone had any good results with mandelic acid for treating rosacea, its meant to be much less irratating thant normal AHA.

Thanks.

I don't know about rosacea but I can say for sure the 10% mandelic acid is gentle. I use it for hyperpigmentation and find it slow but sure.

I tried glycolic acid for hyperpigmentation and that made it worse.

Maybe the best thing would be e-mailing them for some samples to see it it agrees with your skin.

Thanks Sharon, yes I heard it was gentle myself. Anyone had experience with this for rosacea?

verini for your detailed reply, it's much appreciated.

I have read that most types of aha is bad but i read that this particular type actually showed signs of improving rosacea in a number of people in a test case.

Currently i'm on antibotics but after about 5 weeks they (tetrcycline) does not seem to be working. Thank you again.
