Chemical Exfoliants

The Specialist features a trio of actives that have specifically been tailored to target oily skin concerns. This formula can be used as a spot treatment, mask, or even as a booster for a daily pick-me-up.

18% Mandelic Acid: Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) representative. More gentle than glycolic and lactic acid, yet still able to penetrate deeper to clean out pores.

2% Salicylic Acid: Beta hydroxy acid (BHA) salicylic acid is known for its anti-microbial, pore-clearing exfoliating action

Additional Boost

5% Niacinamide: A multi-functional workhorse. Niacinamide is one of the few ingredients out there that reduces the appearance of pores, regulates sebum production, AND boosts skin barrier function over time.

The Specialist's signature blue color is created using a blend of natural flower and sweet potato extract. The formula is EO and fragrance free.

*Full Ingredient List: Butylene Glycol, Mandelic Acid, Water, Propanediol, Niacinamide, Ethoxydiglycol, Polyacrylate Crosspolymer-6, Epilobium Angustifolium Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Extract, Anthocyanin (Ipomoea Batatas Root Extract), Hydrolyzed Gardenia Florida Extract Maltodextrin

Love it

I can feel it working. I put it at night. I put this first and my retinol 30 min after. I was using it everyday and my skin started burning and I realized as a beginner I should do every other day. This way it’s working better and no stinging. I have an oily face. It has helped with the texture of my face and less blemishes.

good

It is so difficult to find a mandelic acid spot treatment, so I was really glad to have found this one. It significantly reduces my pimples overnight which is the main reason I bought it. Also, my incredibly sensitive skin could handle this fine. Would repurchase.
