I'm disappointed this was out of stock already! This is my go to toner for getting rid of breakouts! Once I apply this to my pimples it dries out the following day. Really a must have for oily and combination. It tames my tzone area when it is being stubborn in producing oil (however I only use it on my t-zone and needed areas as it can be too drying!) But overall, this product is a skin saver! I have been using this since I was in HS and it has NEVR failed me. I always but this when it's on sale and I'm sad I missed it here!7 months ago
I have been using this toner with other VMV Hypoallergenics products since 2014. During the time I was introducing the product to my skin by twice-weekly application, the results had been equivocal: on the days of use, my skin felt tighter; in the in-betweens, I still had breakouts but less often and milder. The other products in the Hydra Balance set had kept my skin soft and clean. Results were impressive when I progressed from every other day application to daily to twice-daily. My pimples were smaller and fewer: they don't pop; they just go away in 4 days tops. But I hadn't had breakouts for months (even when I stopped use without a substitute for several weeks as an experiment)--only when intense stress coincided with cycle peaks. I also have seborrheic dermatitis that sometimes reaches my nose folds and eyebrows during flares. This toner contains alcohol, so it stings in those areas. But the inflammation has been kept to a minimum ever since I used this toner: only redness and itch, no more disgusting yellow crusts, large flakes on my face. In warmer, humid climates (around 30C, >80%), this toner hasn't dried me out when used without moisturizers. In colder, less humid climates (under 10C, <80%), however, it did for me in the autumn. It matted my skin to a firm film of plastic; so moisturize as often and immediately after application. Since I discovered this toner, I've never thought of trying out others.8 months ago
Tried this as part of the superskin set I bought together with the facial wash and moisturizer. I have been using this for 3 weeks now and I am impressed with the results. It minimized the oiliness of my face and brightened my skin. I agree with the reviews that the opening of the bottle is too large but otherwise I would continue using this product on a regular basis.9 months ago
It has been 3 months since I have used this product and it was my first time to use such toner and voila -- it made my skin supple, hydrated without being too heavy and my breakouts were controlled. However I haven't seen any significant results on my whiteheads, especially around my nose and cheeks. It does its work on brightnening, however on oil control -- not so for my skin type. Also, I noticed my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation marks did not disappear as much as I have expected. Be cautious, however, if you have sensitive skin because it may cause redness and stinging sensation when you apply it. Just use it as instructed and be faithful on your beauty regimen, girl. Oh, and dont forget to use sunscreen everyday and reapply as needed. Overall, I give it a 4.5 stars.10 months ago
Been using this since I was in High school. I have sensitive skin, so I made sure I incorporated this to my skin regime 'gradually'. I only use this 1x a day and it really helps remove any scarring. The packaging sucks because the opening is huge, I would usually put a huge cotton ball on top and shake the the bottle a couple of times to dispense the right amount. A bottle would last me at least 4 months.about 1 year ago
I am sad to say that this product does not suit me. I do not recommend this for highly sensitive skin or skin that has been exposed to treatments. I have tried to ease this into my skincare regimen as instructed, but the formulation has proven to be too strong for my liking. over 1 year ago
