Mandelic acid is a another type of alpha-hydroxy acid, similar to glycolic acid. But mandelic acid is supposed to be even better than glycolic acid because it has some anti-bacterial properties and is less irritating. But for some reason mandelic acid is much less commonly found in skin care products than glycolic acid. Go figure.

I've used glycolic acid lotions with fairly decent results, so I was thinking of trying mandelic acid to see if the results would be even better. The only 2 products I could find with mandelic acid in them however were the Nucelle line of products that you mentioned, along with another product called MaMa Lotion. Since I have fairly dry skin, I think I'm going to opt for the MaMa Lotion since I've heard the Nucelle products are fairly drying and probably better suited for people with oily skin.
Hi. I noticed on the the website where I purchased the Nucelle, that the Mama Lotion is the number one seller!! You may be on to something.
Anyway, I am just so pleased with my results with the Nucelle.. I read another poster had great results with Nucelle the first couple of weeks, and then their face went totally haywire.. I am hoping this doesn't happen to me. but it has been a month.. so I think I am alright.. Nucelle also sells a shine free moisturizer which has been rated very highly.. I purchased this also, but have not needed to use it yet. Also, they have a sunscreen that was rated a top product by Forbes Magazine.. I probably sound like a commercial, but I am soooo happy with how well these things have worked for me, but I don't see hardly any mention of the Nucelle Line on any of the boards.. It surprises me.

How has the MaMa lotion been so far? I have slightly dry skin as well, and Im wondering if the MaMa lotion dried your skin?
