let’s address the buzz these brands are creating for toner.
can a simple toner help you to achieve good skin?????
yes, it will. It depends on your skin requirement.
Hear out what your skin asking for.
After cleansing face there will be stubborn makeup residue, the face is deprived of oils resulting in lost of PH level thus skin feel dry and flaky that’s when toner step in.
Toners are instep skincare regime its comes after cleanser and before moisturizer.
Today I will be addressing My cult favorite toner from The ordinary called glycolic toner, it contains AHA ( ALPHA HYDROXY ACID), hope by now you knew what is AHA & BHA.
It contains 7% Glycolic acid toning solution, and have a PH ~ 3.6.
The solution exfoliates skin. It is perfect for acne-prone and oily skin with a PH of 3.6 ideal to use.
Not a great option for sensitive skin as it may irritate.
Packaging: It comes in a plastic bottle with a pointed nozzle for the drip.
Not a travel-friendly.
I have been using it from past few months after I came from vacation, I wasn’t regular with skincare and was tanned as hell.
I started using it soon after I came, within a week I could see visible results.
My skin became revitalized, skin texture was improved drastically and I got rid of hyperpigmentation.
Since then it’s my holy grail.
Deciem is a cruelty-free brand, they state to use in PM, once a week. I have been using it in PM thrice a week.
Though it tingles a bit when applied for a few seconds if it persists for longer duration then wash off, it shouldn’t be applied near eye contour.
It is always advisable to do a patch test.
Many people like to compare it with Pixi glow tonic which has 5%glycolic acids with a PH of 4~5. while the ideal skin PH level is 5 ~5.5.
As compare with price The ordinary is cheaper than Pixi.
Since we are dealing with acids there continuous use can make skin sensitive so it is always advisable to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Cons: Slightly tingles when applied.
Pros: Helps in eliminating acne.
Will I buy it again?
