What the brand says: A toner that contains “Blackhead fighting complex” that helps effectively eliminate blackheads from first use and prevent new ones from forming. Helps remove dead skin cells and control excessive oil. It contains cedarwood extract and moisturizer that helps strengthen the skin’s natural water and oil balance, and prevent new blackheads from forming with continuous use.
Packaging: The toner comes in a usual plastic bottle with flip-open cap and is travel friendly.
Texture: The toner is transparent and has a fluid consistency just like water.
Fragrance: The toner has a pleasant and refreshing fragrance, cannot really relate it to anything but it is soothing and won’t bother sensitive noses.
How I use and staying power: To use, cleanse your face first, take a small amount of the toner on a cotton pad and wipe your face with it. Continue with your regular CTM routine and you are done.
Skin feels cool and refreshed and pores feel a bit tightened on using this, which is temporary though. It makes skin absolutely clean and does not really cause dryness like the usual alcohol containing toners in the market. But, I would like to mention that this toner can cause more dryness if you already have dry skin; works great for combination-oily skin! It does help dry out minor acne and controls shine. I don’t have visible blackheads but I do get very tiny ones on the nose and I feel once I get it removed by facials, it does not readily come back. It won’t stop your blackheads but would only reduce its frequency. Results are certainly not miraculous or quick, but it does work great on acne and oily skin.
