This review has been long overdue. I have been using this since April and I only finished it around August. I love how it felt on my skin and how light it is.
Absolutely love this toner, doesn't dry out my skin and lasts for long. I have oily acne prone skin and has done wonders

I LOVE this product, I suddenly started getting acne in my late 30's, saw a difference in a few days. I was very eager to reorder and will continue using!
I have "pimple" prone skin and I can see a huge difference when used consistently. I even use it on my shoulders and back. Will definitely continue to use.
I have oily skin, and my skin absolutely loves this top tier tonic. If you have acne-prone skin, salicylic acid is perfect for sloughing off dead skin but without drying or leaving your skin feeling tight. A staple in my skin care routine. Totally recommend.
