What I like about this product is that it is specially suited for dry and sensitive skin women like me. I've been using this for two years now. I've tried other toners but this is the best since it isn't made with harsh chemicals and you will less likely get breakouts. Whenever I have bumps or hormonal little acne, I wet a little cotton then I just put it above the blemish.. if it's too small or it only started to manifest on my skin, most likely the next day it will be gone. If not, then I have to repeat it the following day. This has coconut-derived antibacterial which effectively manages acne. This will always be my run to toner, to tone down my skin bumps and hormonal acne and it always works!about 1 year ago
This was my first acid toner. The time I bought this, I was also on Retin A, I was using them alternately everyday. I felt like this improved my skin's texture and while it did sting a bit the first few times I used this, it's tolerable. It also had this alcohol smell, but personally I didn't really mind. I followed the instructions that came with the box: used it once a week in the beginning, and worked my way up to more frequent usage. I feel like my skin is now accustomed to acids that I haven't repurchased this since I'm now on glycolic acid treatments. But for those who are just starting to incorporate acids into their routine, I highly suggest this (or Pixi's Glow Tonic!)about 1 year ago
I was surprised to read the instructions on the bottle that said that you cannot use this product daily until at least after 8 weeks. With that in mind, buy this when you have some of your old toner left so that your can slowly transition to this toner. You might get a bit surprised when you apply this as it may sting a bit and the smell is really strong, but you'll get used to it after a while. Although it may seem harsh, don't worry about it drying out your skin since this was made to combat just that. What impressed me most about this product was the instant brightening and firming effect -- my face looks really perky and bright after toning. Overall, this product has been good for me, especially since my skin dried out after months of using COSRX Pimple Pads. I can't say it prevents breakouts as well as the Pimple Pads, but I think it definitely helps the skin heal quicker after a breakout. I'm looking forward to trying more of their products!over 1 year ago
When this arrived, the cap was broken, but the bmnl customer service replaced it after a couple of days. The toner stings when used it for the first time, but doesn't dry your skin. I use it together with the vmv creamy cleanser, and both are very good addition to beauty routine.over 1 year ago
This product embodies the essence of the term "tiis ganda". It causes a stinging sensation when used but it's super effective for getting deep-seated dirt which cleansers and makeup removers might not catch. This toner is just PERFECT for me since it didn't dry out my once super dry skin. I bought this with the other products from VMV's 3-Step Cleansing Line for dry skin. After using the products from this line, however, my skin became a bit oiler but in a good way! I'm not breaking out but the dry patches on my nose have disappeared.over 2 years ago
I love toning my face every single day of my life. I actually tone my skin twice a day and one toner that I highly recommend is this SuperSkin 1 Monolaurin + Mandelic Acid Toner for Dry Skin from VMV which I used a ton when I was staying in a colder weather before.over 2 years ago
