CLAIM TO FAME: A specially formulated toner with peony extracts and a high concentration of licorice water

FAST FACTS: Deeply cleanses and brightens the skin; has a pH level of 5.5 to effectively balance the tone; seeps into skin to add an extra dose of luminosity; contains Green tea extract to calm and reduce pigmentation, acne scars, and dark spots; reduces inflammation with 10% licorice water

PERFECT FOR: A clean, plump, and glowing complexion

”LEGIT This Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner has been my holy grail for a few months now and I’m so excited to say it’s finally curated to Soko Glam!!! This brightening toner with 10% licorice has brightened my skin tone and is going to go down the books as a holy grail that will cause a major freak out if the brand discontinues it! Yes, right next to Banila Co. Clean It Zero, Son and Park Beauty Water, CosRX Pimple patches, and the Neogen Green Tea Cleansing Stick. YUSSS IM DED SERIOUS. It smells amazing+ super natural. Use a cotton pad to swipe across your face and neck after double cleansing and see tons of impurities being lifted from your skin (even after double cleansing!) and then eat it (just kidding!).”

Best cleanser!

I have been using this for few days now, and I'm so impressed! I wasn't expecting it to be this good.. i have been loyal to Eskinol since I was in HS, but my loyalty shifted to this one! It really cleanses the face so well. It brightens your face too. A little goes a long way. I don't mind spending this much on this cleanser because the quality and efficiency is really really good..

Not for me :(

Before using this my face was clear but after I think 4 days of using this I got so many cystic pimples on my chin and jaw area, its so painful. I stopped using it after realising that this toner break me out. But if you want to try it then go for it there’s nothing wrong on trying, we have different skin types maybe this is what your looking for or it can be your holy grail, its just that too bad it didn’t work for me.

Broke me out

I got the 30 mL version of this as a freebie and it broke me out :'( I only used it around 4 times after cleansing and although it claims to be suitable for sensitive skin, that was not the case for me. It does smell good but the small pimples I got from this product took a while to completely disappear. I did not use this too often either (only at night, 1-2 times a week) and this was the only new product I applied on my face so I knew this was definitely the culprit :(.

Glow glow glow

Downside: A little expensive / Upside: This product is sooo gentle its like youre just applying water. But dont be fooled, on days when I just really wanna achieve a glass skin or just a very glowing complexion this is the toner I use together with Ordinary's ALA and since the ALA is VERY potent it really burns when you apply it and yet the burning is diluted when apply this toner first.

A Must Buy Product!

I've been using this for over a month now and I've never been happier...It brightened my face with a little pinkish glow. After double cleansing I use this toner and afterwards i use either my regular moisturizer (neutrogena) or sometimes with elisha coy's moist up hyalurone cream. As for the result,dont really need to put foundation anymore because my skin got brighter and the darkspots has gotten away completely! Super love this!!!

For reference, I have sensitive combination skin. True to its name, this toner really balances out the skin. I used to think toner was just used to get rid of the extra dirt and makeup on your face. So I didn't think it was a very important step in my skincare routine. But this product really made me reconsider the importance of using toner. Whenever I use this product, I have noticed that my skin really does balance out; not super oily nor dry. As a consequence, my makeup lasts longer and my skin needs less blotting. I have also noticed that my skin immediately reacted to this toner in a positive way. My skin feels plump and my fine lines have visibly reduced. I use this with a number of different products that contribute to the recent improvement in my skin. I can guarantee that this product helped since the toners I have used previously didn't give the same results as when I used this toner in my current skincare routine. This toner is definitely on the more expensive side but I will continue to repurchase since I believe having good skin is something worth investing in. Needless to say, I recommend this product a lot.
