This is the best toner ever. AHA really work! I used to have very painful breakouts on chin. Nothing worked - except for this toner! I don't have any pimples ever since I use this product. I'm serious. I use it every other night after removing makeup. I'm a little bit sad that it doesn't help with my mild melasma and post-acne hyperpigmentation but there are other products from this brand that focus on this problematics using a different AHA. My tips: your skin will need some time to get used to this toner, don't give up too early! And don't forget to wear a sunscreen.

Good product but not for sensitive skin
Skin Type: dry Skin
Skin Concerns: Rosacea, Sensitive Skin

I bought this toner before I learned that glycolic acid and sensitive skin were NOT a match... I had used it for a decent while and I liked it for the mild exfoliating it did, and it did seem to help a little with acne. However it just didn't work for my skin at all because glycolic acid is too sensitizing for my skin. My skin would always look worse then it did before I used it; bright red and slightly tingly.

Great Chemical Exfoliator

Since Glycolic Acid is one of AHAs, it sure does it great job in exfoliating my skin (chemically). I used it in my PM routine right after double cleansing,, using a cotton pad. It does irritates my skin at first, I dilute it with some water then it's good to go! It helps me a lot with my skin texture and complexion. For sensitive skin, it might be quite stinging so you have to introduce it slowly and gently starting with few times a week and careful not to over exfoliate your skin. Another tips is wet your skin with a splash of water and wipe em using your hand so that the water doesnt get removed entirely (not soaking wet please XD), that way you don't have to dilute your Glycolic Acid. It doesnt take longer than few weeks, slowly but surely, my tiny bumps on forehead got cleared out. Make sure to listen to your skin. If it irritates you, stop using it.** Dont forget to always wear sunscreen (compulsory)**.

Well, for best result, after using exfoliating toner, top it with any hydrating toner :)

Or maybe top up with any moisturizer (after hydrating toner) with for skin calming purposes - Avena Sativa (Oats), or Centella Asiatica, for skin barrier - Ceramides, Triglyceride. For reference, https://blog.reneerouleau.com/dry-tight-irritated-skin-your-moisture-barrier-might-be-damaged/

As always, it entirely depends on your skin too :)
