Powerful on blemishes but gentle on skin, our new Mandelic Acid Serum will give you a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. Mandelic Acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that exfoliates the skin, ridding the pores of debris, bacteria and dead skin cells that cause acne, but does so without the irritation other AHAs often cause. In addition, Mandelic Acid effectively softens fine lines and wrinkles over time and reduces skin pigmentation. Because Mandelic acid is a large-form molecule, it is much slower to penetrate the skin's layers, which allows for a more even and gentle treatment. Our Serum also contains 2% Azelaic Acid, which acts as an anti-inflammatory. Learn more about Mandelic Acid and it's skin benefits.
**New large size available**
Best for: Mild to severe blemishes or acne, fine lines and wrinkles, mild pigmentation (age spots, large freckles). Extremely gentle and safe for all skin types.
Directions: Use on clean skin in PM. Apply a few drops over entire face with clean fingertips. Since this is a slow penetration product, we recommend you wait 15-20 minutes before applying other products.
Active Ingredients: Mandelic Acid (8%), Azelaic Acid (2%)

I have mild rosacea, dehydrated, and extremely acne prone skin. I had used a mandelic acid serum before from another company and the product cleared up my skin beautifully but caused so much peeling that I had to discontinue use. After that my skin just got bumpy and rough again and I searched the internet for a more gentle mandelic acid serum. I came across this one. This product has a great texture. It goes on light and silky and leaves no greasy residue. It cleared up my skin quickly with no flakiness or peeling. I follow it up with a moisturizer and in the morning my skin is clearer and brighter and smoother as well. Amazing find!

The bumps that I have lived with for so many years are finally disappearing. I had gotten used to knowing that I would never have the glow that some people have but am now realizing with proper diet and clean and pure products, I get to be one of those people with beautiful skin.
The Mandelic Acid has been a huge blessing in my regimen. I love putting it on knowing and feeling the difference it's making for me. Even my husband who is very non observant noticed that my skin looked better and softer.
Vasseur products are helping me tremendously.

I had been using Mandelic serum for a couple of months and my skin looked fantastic -- smooth, even and no blemishes whatsoever. Then I ran out and forgot to reorder. I took my good skin for granted. Well now it's been 3 weeks and my skin is bumpy, dry and terrible---and only now to I really see how much this particular product helped my skin. Ordering again NOW

I have extremely sensitive skin and have been seeking treatment from Kim at Vasseur for my adult acne that flared up in the worst way recently. She has guided me perfectly through the process and decided that I was ready for this product. I am in love with it! It has given me smooth skin and is reducing the horrible redness that I have! I recommend visiting the spa if you can, if not buy this incredible serum!

I try and reject a lot of skin care products, this one is a must-have. I use it after washing and let it soak in prior to moisturizing with emu or coconut oil. You can feel an immediate effect, it's like your skin knows it's something good for it. No wrinkles on this 46 year old chick.

I have had blackheads and pimples since I was a teen, but now that I'm older my skin is more sensitive to the harsh products designed for acne. I've only been using this product for a few days and I can't believe how much better my skin looks. My blackheads are just about gone! Every morning I wake up and my skin is clearer than went I went to bed. Plus there's absolutely no irritation, this stuff is a miracle.

I tried this product because I have very sensitive skin that can't handle most alpha hydroxys. I am very happy to say that as promised this is very gentle on my skin - no dryness, redness or peeling and my skin actually seems softer. After only a few days all of my blackheads (a major issue for me) are completely gone. So far, I'm really liking this product!

Melanie gave me this product to test about 3 months ago...and I have to say, it really is a miracle product. For years I have had tiny bumps on my forehead that just would not go away and gave my skin a pebble-like appearance. It was by far my biggest insecurity. In addition, my skin is very sensitive and peels very easily so I couldn't use glycolic or other stronger AHA's or else my skin would look like a peeling desert.
After about 4 days using the Mandelic Serum morning and night the bumps were COMPLETELY GONE. I couldn't believe it... they had been there for YEARS. Melanie also recommended that I start using it on some very slight wrinkles I was developing and it seems to be reducing those too. Now that I am bump free and wrinkle free my skin has never looked better!!!
