Toner is not something I used regularly. I had got the Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil Eliminating Astringent long ago here. But I dint use it regularly for a very long time and decided to do so. I have almost finished it and here is the review.
Price: $5 (from my Walmart)
Quantity: 8 fl. oz./ 236 ml.
Salicylic acid 2% is the main ingredient
Claims: Effectively treats and helps prevent breakouts without overdrying
My experience with using the product:
I have very recently incorporated toner in my skincare routine after having a bout of acne breakouts. I had this tall bottle of toner but had never used it regularly. I can definitely see positive results with its regular use. Although it comes with a flip top cap, I have transferred this to a sanitized pump bottle for convenience. I use a cotton ball to apply this evenly all over my face. My major concern is the content of alcohol in this toner. The fumes are very strong when you are applying it on your face. It stings a wee bit but after a while of using this, you get used to it. Once it dries up, all that feeling is goes away. True to its claims, it doesn’t dry out your skin at all and I can see an improvement in my acne prone skin. It contains salicylic acid which is an effective acne treatment. I feel it pulls out the gunk from my pores. I like how it makes my skin feel especially when I use it in the summer. It keeps my skin from getting oily. Once I finish this up I will be trying other brands too and find a ‘non-fumy’ one which is as effective as this. This is good quantity that is going to last me a long time. I do like this product. If you are someone who has an oily or combination skin which is acne prone, I think you should give this product a try.
1) Makes my skin feel clean
2) Contains salicylic acid
3) Non drying
1) The strong fumes
2) The stingy sensation
Will you repurchase? If I don’t find an effective and better toner, I will come back to this.
