Helps with pimples

I am a type of person who likes to sqeeze pimples and deal with the consequences later. Oh well, I can't help myself, I wish I just didnt do it.
So this toning solution works very well for sanitising the area where I was sqeezing pimples. Its not drying skin as much as the salicylic acid or Alcohol. My dermatologist said that I should not use Alcohol for face. It makes a disaster on your face. I am trying to be more gentle and do not use too many products at a time.

I do not use it everyday, just when its necessary because I use also hylauronic acid, and retinol and other stuff.

Anyway, this is a nice thing to have if you have blackheads, whiteheads etc. Need to use sunprotection the next day. I never put it on the face before going out.

best for acne and textured skin

This product has made my skin glow. it does stings a bit at first but goes away some time. i use it 3 times a week and it has reduced a lot of my hyperpigmentation as well. i would suggest anyone to use a repairing cream or soothing cream after and use SPF during the day. if you cannot use the AHA Peeling solution( the red product ) you can opt for this as this is a mild exfoliator.

Great for oily and acne-prone skin.

I have been using this product for months now and it definitely improved my skin texture and skin tone. It helps very much with calming down my skin when it's breaking out. There have been times when I could not resist picking my face, so I immediately ran for help to this toner and it made wonders. I love it because it helps me with avoiding new pimples (not completely, but I have seen much worse), slightly exfoliates my skin and as a massive bonus - it doesn't have unnecessary alcohol!
So why 4 stars?
What I don't like is this sticky feeling it leaves on my skin after I use it. In summer it's very irritating because this sticky feeling makes me want to wash my face with soap (just kidding, but yeah, sticky = not cool). Yet, for this price and for these ingredients it's not that big of a deal.
