”Love love love this product! Before this I was using the nip + fab glycolic night pads both morning and evening & they were great but I started to notice after a while they were less effective. I then found these which were stronger and also far cheaper and my skins been so clear that I literally only use this every now and again. The only thing I don’t like is the tacky feeling after but it’s a very minor thing. Overall the product & price is fantastic.”

I have been using this toner for 2 weeks now, every night before bed. It gave me amazing results already Im impressed. My skin is oily, acne prone, and rough is some areas with some minor acne scars, nothing major. Before I have tried different toners from various brands but I was not satisfied with the results. This one blew me away. My skin now is smoother and less oily. The overall texture has greatly improved. I even don’t wear foundation anymore sometimes just powder. I will forever repurchase!about 1 month ago
I bought this along with a Cosrx facial cleanser wanting to revamp my regimen. At first I was a little hesitant because of those videos on the internet saying you shouldn't mix this with that or else you'll burn your face, stuff like that. Pero I did some research, watched more vids, and I learned how to use it. Grabe. I use this once ot twice a week lang, and it works! I don't know how pero whenever I feel like having a breakout, I use it the night before and the zit's inflammation kind of subsides. It doesn't go away 100% but it somehow calms it. Having tried this one TO product, I am now waiting for the restocking of the others. Palaging Out of Stock!! Haha. They're all probably really good kasi. Cannot wait!about 1 month ago
I like that it doesn't sting my face but I don't think it works well on my skin. I don't see any noticeable differences.. Maybe I need to try this more. Compared to the AHA 30% and BHA 2% mask, its a bit lackluster. Expected more of a difference to my skin since this comes highly recommended so I was a bit disappointed. Anyway, YMMV so maybe this will work for your skin.about 1 month ago
Sadly, this is one TO product I can't recommend. I've been using a lot of TO products but this one made me breakout. I heard good things about this toner but sadly it's not for me. I have combination skin with no breakouts before so I really regretted buying this product.about 2 months ago
