Vmv hypoallergenics Id anti-acne toner saved my skin!
December 4, 2014
”First off, I have been using products from VMV Hypoallergenics since I was a teenager, when my acne troubles first started. Over the years my skin has settled down to the point where I can manage the breakouts, but every now and then I get really bad breakouts and I always find myself bringing out this toner. It comes in a pretty, dark blue bottle. The astringent itself doesn’t sting or make my skin irritated or red. The instructions are pretty helpful too. They suggest starting out slowly with using this product eventually building up a tolerance to it where you can use it daily. I didn’t experience any purging period and it helped with healing my existent blemishes! Definitely will be a staple product in my skin care regimen!!”
