Fantastic Product!! Awesome Results!!

5

I have been using Vivant Skincare products for 23 years. I was a patient of Dr. James Fulton, the developer of Vivant Pharmaceuticals. The 8% Mandelic Acid 3-in-1 Serum has made my skin firm and smooth in texture. With consistent use of product, you will see results. I am 45 and my skin is even in skin tone, brighter and with no visible signs of wrinkles for my age. I highly recommend Vivant without reservation.

Great beginner serum

5

I purchased this 8% Mandelic serum and the Spin Trap serum. I have followed the instructions on the 8% serum. I have used this on my entire face every other night for one week. I put the Spin Trap in the refrigerator. I then went to every day. I have had no problems with the serum. I have severe allergies and scents. I was hesitant about the scent, but I have not had any reaction. I placed an order for the 15% Mandelic serum on October 14. Unfortunately, there is a shipping problem, but I don't know which item it is. Anyway I still have the 8% serum left. I am now going to try the Spin Trap over the serum. Until I receive the 15% strength serum, that is my only choice. I am used to acids; glycolic, retinoids and retinol, and Vitamin C. I believe that is why I haven't had any breakouts or allergic reactions. I love this product and the entire line! I wish that I had known about his products earlier. This serum may cost more upfront, but I promise you that it's worth every penny!

Gentle yet effective

5

I continue to be totally amazed by all the products I've used from Vivant Skincare. I love this serum - it smells nice, goes on well, doesn't irritate my skin, and has been helping erase some acne scars, all while keeping my skin clear of new breakouts. It's a winner for me and I'll be ordering this again!

Has Changed My Skin

5

After struggling with acne for 15 years and trying countless "miracle" products, I never thought I would find a product that would help my skin this much. I bought this as part of the regimen recommended to me by my clear skin coach, and it's worth every dollar and more! She had me ease into use....every other night, then every night, and now every morning and night. For 7-10 days I experienced some purging, where this serum brought some "gunk" up to the surface and I had a breakout. However, using the serum helped blemishes to go away at least 50% faster. After a few weeks of use, my skin has been clear with the exception of one period pimple, which went away sooo much faster. This serum is already helping to fade hyperpigmentation from past acne and has made my skin so much smoother since it promotes skin renewal. I can't recommend this enough! I'm feeling good about my skin for the first time in years.

Decent serum

4

I just started using this serum a couple of weeks ago and my skin is reacting well. No dryness or irritation. It hasn't improved my acne yet or brightened much, but maybe it's just too soon to try. It hasn't made my skin breakout worse, so that's good. I'll keep using and see how it goes.

Good for beginners

5

My skin does seem a little brighter, and it is very gentle. I have not had any major tingling and I use it two to three times a week. This is my first acid serum, so I think it is a good starter to help work my way up to stronger formulas.

I LOVE this!

5

I've only been using this for 2 weeks but am already noticing a difference in my skin! I started with this lower concentration to see how my skin would react, since it's very sensitive. Per the instructions I started with every other night and only a dime size amount, but I think my skin can handle every night as long as I use a night moisturizer on top of it. I have cystic acne with tiny pimples as well and I immediately noticed a difference in a reduction in pimples. Cystic acne is a beast to manage without hormone therapy, and I recently decided to ditch the last of my prescription meds, so I don't expect any miracles here, but every little bit helps! I expected the scent to be strong as most essential oils are but it's very mild. The oil itself is also very thin and easy to absorb, which is a nice surprise as well. It's says not to apply as a spot treatment but I want to ensure I get decent coverage in my trouble spots. I put a small amount in my palm and dip my fingertip in and then rub that in to each major problem zone (evenly and thinly). Once done, I rub my hands together and apply the oil to my entire face. It seems to be working for me so far! It's very expensive but it works for me so it's become part of my routine now. If you can afford it I recommend you try it out!!

Mixed Feeling

4

I purchased this product even though it meant straying from my typical natural skincare routine. I bought it primarily to fade the freckles/pigmentation on my fair skin that had resulted from not wearing sunscreen for a while. Although the results weren't immediately remarkable, after a month of using it every night, the freckles are now barely noticeable and my skin looks a lot brighter. I had some skin peeling the first week around my nose, but after that I was fine. That being said, it does give me odd red itchy bumps on my cheek area, which is a definite downside. However, the closed comedones on my forehead practically disappeared after I started using this, so I think I'll purchase it again just to use on my forehead area. I just wish it were fragrance free as I believe that is what causing me issues with it.

Great for Acne-Prone and Oily Skin

5

I have definitely noticed a difference in my skin since introducing this product into my regimen at night. I do not use this every night, instead alternating between retinol and masks. My acne-prone, combination-oily skin has really responded well to this product. For awhile, I was just applying product to my face and not my neck so I could see the difference. Once I started applying it to my neck, I instantly took note of the changes and improvements in the texture of my skin and size of pores. Very much recommend. I originally purchased a higher concentration of the mandelic acid that was too much for my skin, Dermstore's customer service was excellent in helping me to exchange.

Where has this been all my adult life

5

I have struggled with oily acne prone skin for years. I used to be able to fill and entire oil blot sheet within an hour of washing my face. Nothing seemed to work. Products would cause my face to become too dry (which caused more oil) or make my skin too oily. So either way, OIL! This product, along with a prescription strength retinol, has been a God send. I've been using it religiously for over a year now. I rarely struggle with oil anymore. I rarely breakout and if I do it is very minimal. I know each person is different but I would definitely try this if you struggle with oil or acne.
