Better at cleansing than controlling oil
Apparently, my skin just hit puberty at age 31. It has become more oily, more sensitive and more prone to cystic acne - problems I didn't even have back in my teens.
So I did an overhaul in my skin routine and added this toner to my regiment.
While it does reduce the oiliness, I wouldn't say it does so successfully. I still have to use a tissue or blotter from time to time, especially during warmer days.
It does, however, make my skin look smoother and feel lighter, probably because of the reduced sebum. It can remove stubborn dirt and makeup that regular cleansers cannot. It helps reduce the build up of blackheads and whiteheads on my nose. And it does have that cooling effect which makes my skin feel fresher/cleaner.
Overall while it doesn't deliver much on its intended purpose, it does bring something else to the table, which is its cleansing abilities.
