The best toner for acne-prone skin
This is the best toner I have ever used for my acne-prone skin. Using it both in the morning and in the evening may be a bit drying. So, I use it only in the morning and it leaves my skin clean and ready to be hydrated. It has no odour, which I like a lot. It does not help with cystic hormonal acne, but it is very good for fungal and regular acne.
