Review: The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10%+HA
After a very successful experience with 10% lactic acid, The Ordinary (post), I wanted to see their other products.
I’ve read that mandelic acid is more than dairy, suitable for sensitive skin, and decided that the next product I will try from The Ordinary, is their mandelic acid.
The Ordinary Mandelic Acid 10%+HA – is a peeling based on almond acid.
It is designed to gently exfoliate the skin, lighten and get rid of acne.
The packaging is fairly standard for their products, it is the same glass bottle (in this case of dark glass) with a dropper.
This amount is enough for me at times
The texture is runny, buttery, spread over the skin very easily.
On the face of the falls an oily film, as if you’ve applied liquid hydrophilic oil.
Even after hours, the medium is not absorbed into the skin, so I definitely washed.
Smell it, in my opinion, has no, color yellow, similar to color a lactic acid peel.
The treatment is recommended for use even in Sunny season, since it has no skin photosensitizing effect.
In addition, it suitable sensitive and Mature skin, sensitive skin, prone to couperose.
For me this is an important point in choosing any means, not to cause complications of the current state.
I used it in August, no new pigmentation has not appeared, but I was often a means of protection against the sun 50 SPF. My skin is prone to pigmentation, so the extra risk to me to anything.

In addition to the active substance — mandelic acid it contains several moisturizing ingredients.
Because the tool I used with only one purpose: sensitive skin and improve its tone, is moisturizing, and other effects I wouldn’t expect anything.
This peeling I usedtwo months, in about a day, sometimes a little less.
During the application the skin is almost always slightly pinched. I kept peeling for about an hour then washed. After rinsing , the skin is pink, sometimes even red, the sensitivity is higher than normal.
Sometimes after washing, the skin was redder than usual and slightly burned. Probably depends on the condition of the skin before. In any case, I didn’t really liked it after a lactic acid peel was nothing like this never.
The first 8-10 times the leather a bit peel off on the second day after each use, but the peeling didn’t last long.
From lactic acid peel 10% of The Ordinary again, I did not have such effects.
As for the immediate result, I can say the following.
Peeling really works: it very well whitens the skin, evens its tone, it becomes more soft and smooth.
But still before the lactic acid peel, he does not hold (for me at least).
whitens the skin;
evens skin tone;
improves relief kaimenyi
does not affect the oiliness of the skin;
increases the sensitivity of the skin;
lies a film of oil on the skin;
reduce enlarged pores
Total I can say that this peel is a good routine way to maintain the skin in beautiful condition. And probably if it suits your skin type, relationship with him goes much better than me.
However, my favorite remains peels 10% lactic acid Ordinary. Though, because my skin takes it more calmly than mandelic acid.
This peel while I postponed, I don’t know if he’s coming back to him.
For 2 months of use I spent about a third of packing 30 ml.
Price approx 500 p
With the assessment of the loss in the strength of individual reactions.
