Our Take

Clean & Clear’s Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent has 2% salicylic acid to fight against oil and zits, which makes it a good once-over around oily or acne prone areas like your T-zone after cleansing.

I honestly love this product. I had been on proactive for three years and decided to get off it and this is the astringent i turned to instead of the step 2 toner of proactive. When i use this at night it literally eliminates any acne that I have. Even angry cysts are soothed.. it really dries out the pimple and you can feel the product cleaning out your pores. It is very strong, if you have sensitive skin i would recommend the sensitive skin version of this, which clean and clear provides. I only use it at night because it is rather strong. I have pretty bad acne and this has definitely helped clear me up or at least sooth break outs. Don't hesitate, its worth every penny!! ...read more

Thayers’ toner has natural ingredient to tighten pores so they look less visible. Soothing aloe vera makes sure your skin is left soft, never stripped dry.

Where do I even begin. I'll start from the beginning. I suffer from acne, acne scars, hyper pigmentation, you get the deal. I have been looking for different products to either get rid of or light my scars, but also to help get rid of my acne. Nothing would really work for me. I found this on amazon and saw all of the amazing reviews and pictures and I decided to get the 2 pack since it was cheaper and I wanted to try it out. I got this item on a day where I was very broken out with acne. I was super excited and immediately put some on. I continued to apply with a cotton ball or just directly to the face as often as I could or about 10 times a day. Within 3 days most of my acne has cleared up and any scabs from picking at my face were completely gone. This also left my face super smooth and soft. About a week later, I broke out in a way I had never done before. I had, no lie, over 20 pimples on my face and a bunch of small ones on my forehead and jawline. I was so sad because my skin had finally started to get bitter. I picked at it in destress and made things worse. But I continued to apply hoping that it would things better and it did. About a week had passed and everything had cleared up. I realized that it was just bringing everything to the surface and I was hormonal because of Aunt Flow. Since then I have gone about 2 weeks with very minor pimples and my acne scars have lightened up so much. After a month, I have about half a bottle left which is great because i use it non stop as well as my parents who have also seen improvement in the sun damage on their faces. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures so that you guys could see the difference, but please please try this product, you won't be disappointed. I do have a tip that helped me. I got a paper towel and put enough drops so that it was wet. Then I put it on a face like a mask and left it until it dried up. I did that about 2-3 times day. The best thing is that you can use this as many times as you want and there won't be any negative consequences ...read more

I love this stuff. I didn't read the directions at first and just started washing it off. Once I finally figured out how to appropriately use it, I fell in love with it. It's a little harsh. There is definitely a burning sensation when you first start using it, but you get used to it as your acne or blackheads improve. This product shouldn't be used alone. It should be used with a face wash before, and after, you should use a moisturizer. That is the most effective way to go about using this product. I would buy it again. and I do, every time I run out. This has made my skin clear up so much. I am in love with this product. ...read more

This toner is incredible! I have dry, acne prone skin that I can't seem to control or clam. I've tried countless toners at every price point and this is by far my holy grail. I love the affordable price, how it moisturizes my skin, reduces the size of my pores and fights my acne. I'm not extremely found of the smell of witch hazel, however it is much better than the product being scented which I hate with my overly sensitive skin. The one thing I would change about this product is that the bottle leaks slightly if it is laying on its side. For at home use the packaging is great, however if you travel I would pour some into travel friendly, leak proof container. This product is great for all skin types and is defiantly worth a try, especially at the affordable price point.

I received this product free for review from Influenster, however all opinions are my own and I wasn't paid to write this review. ...read more

My skin really loves this toner. I use this morning and night. In my morning, it's feels really refreshing and it really helps to make my skin look a lot better for those 8am classes. And at night, It helps get rid of any gunk that I missed. Sometimes, when my skin is feeling oily and gross, I use this mid day to refresh. I can only give it four stars, because I hate the packing. The cap screws on and off and since the opening is really big, if I knock it over, it would spill all over. I just have to be so careful when I pour it out too because of the big opening, I don't want to pour too much and waste the product. It would be perfect if they changed the cap. ...read more

Pixi Glow Tonic gently exfoliates with glycolic acid, and fructose to brighten. With regular use, your healthy, dewy skin will come through.

Simran V.Simran V. said...
I originally thought this toner was going to be underwhelming, but it’s definitely worth all the hype. The Pixi Glow Tonic is my holy grail when it comes to glowy, clear skin! I personally use this toner in the evenings after I cleanse my face and wake up with radiant, balanced skin.

In general, this toner wipes away any texture and impurities you may have as it contains 5% glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is known to reduce discolouration, fine lines, and dullness as it’s an exfoliant. Right after the first use, I noticed my skin was brighter, clearer and softer. It also contains ginseng, which has antioxidant properties that help with energizing the skin and toning it. Lastly, the reason why your skin becomes so smooth when using this product is because it contains aloe vera, which helps to hydrate and calm the skin. I recommend this product to everyone as it’s super gentle. If you have sensitive skin, I’d recommend using it once a day or every other day. ...read more
