To all the girls out there struggling to take control of their acne-prone skin, read on. A Cosmo Girl got in touch with us to tell a tale about her ~new~ skincare discovery that miraculously cured her pimples overnight. Here's her story:
Skin type: Sensitive
Skincare routine: Facial wash, toner, moisturizer, face mask (once a week)
I've always had problem skin since I hit puberty. I constantly collected and used up products that promise to manage oil production and zap my zits. I came across Beach Born's Healing Toner and wondered if it could be a replacement for the K-beauty toner I recently emptied.
According to Beach Born's website, it's alcohol-free, and it has witch hazel extract, an effective ingredient that can heal pimples. Aloe vera and lavender serve as calming add-ons. Most toners I've used were too harsh for my skin, so I expected this to be more apt for my sensitive skin.
It has a mild citrusy smell which I liked. I don't like my skincare products to have harsh scents. It also felt light on my skin—I think it's perfect for summer.
I initially got the Healing Toner because it came with a spray bottle—it could make my routine faster, and I could just allow my skin to absorb it. When I first used it, I had big red pimple near my nose and I had small pimples on my cheeks. The next day, I noticed that the redness was gone and my pimples were dried up. I'm not even kidding. It left pimple marks but at least my pimples were gone. I couldn't believe it.
I continued to use it for a week, and I have to say, I'm really impressed. My pimples are almost gone now. This toner is a savior, and is definitely worth a try. If you're like me who's constantly battling acne but is dealing with sensitive skin, consider adding this to your daily skincare routine.
Beach Born Healing Toner is available for P280 at BeachBorn.ph.
