The Product: MaMa Lotion
The Claim: MaMa Lotion is the ultimate agent for those wanting clear, healthy skin. Its powerful formula is tough on wrinkles, acne, and scars, yet gentle on the skin. Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, fades acne scars, fights acne, and evens skin tone.
The Results: I have to admit I was a little put off at first by the name of this product. Mama lotion? Really? Turns out the MaMa stands for Mandelic and Malic Acid, which translates to 10% AHA. It's strong, so they recommend applying it every other day at first. After the first application I noticed my pimples dried up. After the second application, my skin was peeling and scaly and I was embarrassed to leave the house. After the third application, I woke up to amazingly smooth, clear skin. Hallelujah! In less than a week, my skin completely changed. After two weeks I noticed a more even tone to my skin. I can't vouch for any fading of acne scars, as that takes time, but this product is worth it for the pimple-drying effect alone. If it also fades my discoloration I am going to be one extremely happy camper. And, at $44.50, it's very reasonable for this type of product.
Side Note: I normally don't say things like "happy camper," but I just can't control my excitement over this product!
