2 reviews for 10% Mandelic Acid + 1% Polyglutamic Acid

  1. Ntombikayise Mtimba (verified owner)

    I love this product, it really helps with my skin texture. I bought the 5ml and it looks like it will last me for a very long time.

  2. Ofentse Molatlhegi (verified owner)

    I bought the 5ml for starters and it’s been a month using it so it can last you up to a month and I only use it once a week to help with my pigmentation so far so good , but it can be a bit stinky so be aware of that
