Why This?

The Specialist features a trio of actives that have specifically been tailored to target oily skin concerns (especially acne). This formula can be used as a spot treatment, mask, or even as a booster for a daily pick-me-up.


Chemical Exfoliants

18% Mandelic Acid: an Alpha Hydroxy Acid representative. More gentle than Glycolic and Lactic Acid, yet still able to penetrate to clean out pores.

2% Salicylic Acid: a Beta Hydroxy Acid known for its anti-microbial, deep pore-clearing exfoliating action.

Killer Antioxidant

5% Niacinamide: a multi-functional workhorse. Niacinamide is one of the few ingredients out there that reduces the appearance of pores, regulates sebum production, brightens skin, and boosts skin barrier function over time.
