To be totally honest I have been using this product wrong for like two weeks...but in the last week that I have been USING IT CORRECTLY I've found I really do like it. Note to self (and others) this is not a toner water or toner lotion, it's basically a secondary cleanser that needs to be washed on and off, not just applied like moisturizer as I so ignorantly thought before! BUT now that I am using it correctly I really do love it. I use this product after my cleanser on days I am not using my 2in1 pore mask. THEN I use toner lotion/water or a stronger moisturizer depending on how my skin is feeling that day. I have really nagging pores and this product really does keep my skin a lot smoother and flatter...if that makes sense. I often find that especially around my nose I can feel the little bumps of my pores and I just want to scratch out all the dirt! This product really keeps that feeling down and keeps my skin "flat" or I guess smooth and even.
I love this product. It smells pretty bad. And it sometimes hurts a little...but it works really well so for that reason I've been using it for a LONG time now. I love this product because I really do find that I put it on a pimple directly two or three times, it burns a touch, and then within a day the pimple is completely gone. I wouldn't recommend this product for blackheads or small little pimples, but for the big nagging pimples that maybe haven't even reached the surface yet this product really is a huge help. It's not meant to slop on your face in an area where you get acne, it's a spot treatment that you should be putting right on that sucker.
This product smells awful and doesn't feel very nice...but I love it because it works. A couple times a month my skin gets all pimply and gross whether I've been eating too many burgers or I'm on my period and these wipes are a god-send. When they say "rapid action" they really do mean it. If you can handle the acidic smell and feeling then you're home free. My advice is that yes they do sort of sting and tingle, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's hurting your skin, it's just the effect of the salicylic acid really slaughtering your acne. I find that the feeling (and the smell) go away within a couple of minutes and then I'll usually use a toner lotion or moisturizer because the wipes really do dry out your skin. But like I said- they work like a charm for unfortunate acne outbreaks and I've been buying them for years.
I love this toner! I use the normal to combination skin. The picture I've used is the particular bottle I have right now but I believe the packaging may have changed ever so slightly. I love this toner! I use it about 50% of the time when my skin is feeling nice and "normal" I've honestly never felt my skin so soft. It is so simple that I don't know why everyone doesn't use it. You literally just wipe it all over and feel lovely! I tend to have slightly patchy, red skin and this toner is a dream in evening out my skin tone as well as moisturizing.
This is my favourite moisturizer!! I use the normal to combination skin option (blue). I love that it is a gel. I've always used lotion moisturizers and never really loved the way they feel, and always found that even the "for oily skin" options left my skin feeling greasy. This product really is perfect for combination skin, I have some areas of my face that are so oily I want to blot them every 20 seconds, while other areas are dry enough that they end up peeling if I don't take care, and THIS moisturizer is great for all the parts of my face. It is very dense, and you really do only need a little. I don't use this product every day as I find that some days my skin only needs a moisturizing toner, but in general this is my go-to facial moisturizer!
This is my favourite daily cleanser! To be honest I find that (for the most part) a cleanser is a cleanser. Everybody has different skin types that need cleaning so everyone will need a different type of cleanser but for my combination skin I really do love this product. I find that it is very gentle on my dry skin and does indeed leave my oilier areas shine free. I would not recommend this cleanser for someone with very dry skin, however, because it is clearly made for combination to oily skin- as you can tell by the "anti-shine". I do need a decent moisturizer post cleansing, but honestly I like to moisturize really well no matter what cleanser I use.
This is one of my top 2 targeted acne treatments! While this product is not the strongest for a big nagging pimple, it works wonders and blackheads and smaller pimples. My favourite thing about this is that unlike most similar products, this one doesn't have that overwhelming salicylic acid smell we all know and hate from any acne targeting cleanser, wipes, etc. I get a lot of tiny pimples between my nose and upper lip, especially after waxing the good 'ol 'stache and this product is perfect for that area because it WORKS and doesn't STINK.
This is my absolute favourite face mask! I use it twice a week on my nose and chin and it really is a noticeable difference immediately. I myself struggle with dirty pores and blackheads and with combination skin it's hard to find a product that digs up all the dirt without leaving my bone dry and irritated. the 2in1 pore mask makes my skin baby smooth and I only need a little bit of moisturizer.
