How I Use:

Initially when I bought this product I used it twice daily, and my skin got so dry with dry patches (mistake), I used to swipe/drag this product once applied to my cotton pad but IT SPREADS BACTERIA (mistake). I also used to apply this all over my face (mistake).

  • Now, applying this product on my cotton pad, I DAB it into my skin ONLY ON AREAS WITH ACNE.
  • I use this once every other day/s, either in the morning if I’m not going out or at night.

It dries the pimples out so you might want to follow up with a face moisturizer before going out.


  • I like the packaging.
  • Affordable and available.
  • Gets the job done, two weeks after using this my pimples dried up.


  • None.

Will I Buy Again?

Yes, it works.

  1. Bought this when I was struggling with acne and it dried my face out. I also felt it was pretty harsh.
    Dumped it after about 3 uses and it expired on my table unused after that.
    I used a moisturizer but I guess I should have only dabbed on problem areas.


    1. Yes, dabbing is the way to go with toners and it will definitely dry your face out, I had to reduce usage to every other day.
      Thanks for stopping by Hun.


  2. It works wonders. However, it is absolutely scarce in Nigeria and there are several derogatory imitations of this product. It clears acne and black spots! I’m really sad that I can’t find the original product in circulation anymore.
