I recently decided I would start a new skin care routine as I realized my skin's needs have changed. I am 30, have combination skin, minor blemishes once in a while and large pores around nose area that I hate! My first step at night is to wash away all makeup using baby oil on a cotton ball, then I use this toner all over (except for the eye area), lastly I use Nivea COQ10 Night Crème. After swiping this toner all over my face I also take in down my neck and upper chest area. I have noticed that my skin has become super clear, even and smooth after only about 2 weeks of consistent use. As a side note, it is also great to use on any area that you shave and have trouble with ingrown hairs!! I guess because it chemically exfoliates your skin slightly it really helps keep the bumps away.
