Skincare Sunday | The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10% + HA


Another skincare review from the still very hyped up brand The Ordinary! Let's begin....

What does the product claim?
The product claims to: ' Alpha hydroxy acids are a well-established skin care hero. Ingredients such a glycolic, lactic and malic acid are renowned for their ability to dissolve the skin’s dulling ‘stratum corneum’ (the oldest, thinnest, top layer of skin) and reveal the younger, more radiant cells beneath. However, these potent acids can irritate skin, especially sensitive complexions – and that’s where The Ordinary’s Mandelic Acid 10% + HA comes in. This innovative formulation offers superficial dermal peeling (that’s exfoliation to you and me) that is gentler than other alpha hydroxy acid formulations. How is it gentler, you ask? Simple – the molecular weight of mandelic acid is larger than that of other alpha hydroxy acids and this larger size means that it penetrates the skin more slowly. This makes for a milder exfoliating experience that will suit even the most sensitive complexions, leaving skin smoother, more even and gorgeously glowing. The Ordinary’s (characteristically ingenious) formulation also includes hyaluronic acid, to hydrate and comfort skin while plumping away the look of fine lines. A must-have for sensitive, reactive skin types. ' (Source Cult Beauty)

How to use
I used this product as my acid exfoliator in the evening. 

Where to purchase?
You can purchase The Ordinary pretty much everywhere; Asos, Feel Unique, Look Fantastic, Cult Beauty, Beauty Bay etc

Overall Opinion

Like stated above this product is an acid exfoliator and in my opinion a good option for sensitive skin  as it's not too harsh, it's not runny like most acids, it doesn't sting at all and it removes dead skin cells to remove healthy look skin the next day! All in all a very good product, I would recommend for people with sensitive skin but I do think my skin needs something a little bit more stronger like the Lactic acid for example but still this is a good budget product.
