Review: M2 Skin Refinish 20% aka MaMa Lotion

My favorite chemical exfoliator. 2,500php at La Petite Confiserie. See the crappy cap.


Eliminate all your skin care woes with one easy-to-use serum. This multi-purpose facial treatment uses a high-potency combination of Mandelic and Malic Acids to rapidly even skin tone, reduce breakouts, and soften wrinkles. (Previously known as MaMa Lotion)
1.7 fl oz


Ideal for all skin types, especially hyperpigmented, mature, and acne-prone, who want a smooth, even complexion. Recommended for all skin tones, including dark skin. Click here to read why M2 HP Skin Refinish works well on dark skin. Safe for use while pregnant or nursing.

Mandelic Acid is naturally antibacterial. Malic Acid protects skin from damaging free radicals. Algae Extract moisturizes skin.

It’s a sticky sticky substance that really smells like glue, and when you touch your face, don’t be scared if you feel like it’s so sticky some
of your skin might stick on your finger haha. I love the fact that every night I use this, morning the following day my skin looks radiant and fresh.
Ive been using this for a month now and unfortunately it hasnt proved the “less blackheads, less acne, minimize pores” bit yet. But it works
as a great exfoliater and skin breather.

When I forget exfoliating, my skin feels itchy and heavy.. prolly because of all the sunscreen I put during the day, so it’s a great way to end the night
and let my skin breath again and unclog the dirt stuck in my pores.

I HATE THE CRAPPY PACKAGING. Haha.. sorry for that. It’s really crappy, cap keeps getting loose, it’s so hard to get a product out, and it’s a tad bit messy.
It’s so inconvinient, I am thinking theyre so smart to create this great product yet suck at making its packaging. I did not get a stub because
it’s the major rant of all users of M2 Skin Refinish. The bottle and pump cap is annoying.

Will I buy again?
This will last around a year or so, but if I ran out. I WILL buy again. This is holy grail material folks.

An update on my task for neutrogena..
