Life is stressful and sometimes your skin is a resemblance of that. I found the perfect Astringent for treating acne, that works really fast!
Astringents are not the same as toners. Astringents deeply clean pores and remove the dead layer from out skin. They also have the effect of instantly closing pores; which is why you should use an astringent after scrubbing and black head removal.

I purchased this toner when my skin was acting up during the semester. When I used it my skin immediately looked refreshed. It toned down my acne and immediately made them smaller. It really is a strong astringent that pulls out deep seated dirt and grime from skin. I have combination skin, drier during the winter but still super oily on my t-zone.
I use it only at night, after taking off all of the day’s make-up. I use Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Activated Charcoal Bar Soap, a facial brush to clean my face, pat on the astringent, and then use my Clinique Dramatically Different’ Moisturizing Lotion + pump on top.
Would I recommend? Totally! Would I buy again? Yes! If you have breakouts, acne, large pores, and or oily skin this is the product for you! If you have dry skin, I wouldn’t recommend as it might dry out your face. For dry skin, Witch Hazel would be better.
