Dr. Wu Intensive Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18%


dr-wu-renewal-system-intensive-renewal-serumDr. Wu Intensive Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18% is one of the brand’s best-selling skincare products. I find that there are quite a few Taiwanese skincare brands with mandelic acid skincare, it must be the trend there to have skin renewal products. The bottles are usually small since you only need a teeny-weeny amount. The bottle comes with a dropper attached to the cap so you squeeze out a drop or two at most.

This serum is a revolutionary home spa facial treatment using several patented technologies and ingredients to refine skin texture, diminish fine lines and improves skin elasticity and firmness. It contains Mandelic acid 18% which is used in Chemical Peeling procedures, to effectively diminish the appearance of fine lines and stimulate the skin desquamation process to achieve a smoother and brighter skin, even improves skin tone by resurfacing epidermis and removing aged layers. Formula also contains Sodium Hyaluronate, Oat Beta-Glucan Extract and Centella Asiatica Extract which can be easily absorbed by the skin to facilitate hydration, and reduce dark spots and freckles, therefore to make skin brighter and more clear.

It’s only applied two to three times a week. Applying every day would be too much and do more harm than good. It certainly makes my skin smoother and more refined, even brighter. The formula uses highly purified Mandelic Acid from Merck in Germany.

Dr. Wu Intensive Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18% retails at RM149/15ml.
