3 reviews for 6% Mandelic Tonic

  1. Tsholo Moeketsane (verified owner)

    loved the product. However after a few months it turned a bit yellow with white like particles forming around the opening I think it was “oxidizing” not sure

  2. thamaenorica (verified owner)

    Without a doubt, a favourite of mine.
    Paired with the hydration juice, I’ve noticed a healthy and very radiant glow on my skin.

    I’ve also started, recently, using the product for my armpits and I’m noticing the dullness go away.

    Love it.

    Love this toner. Gentle exfoliation. You get the effect of a chemical peel with the harshness. Love it
