Skin Type: Combination, sensitive and acne prone
In this post, I am reviewing Pond’s Acne Clear Pore Conditioning Toner. Read on to know how it fared for me:
Price and Quantity:
70 PHP or 100 INR approx. for 100 ml.
My Experience with Pond’s Acne Clear Pore Conditioning Toner:
The product comes in a baby blue translucent plastic bottle having a white flip top cap. The cap shuts tightly making a click sound and that makes this bottle fit for travel purposes. The triangular-shaped bottle looks sleek and nice. Overall, the packaging is nice, lightweight and travel friendly.
It has a strong alcoholic smell, which irritates a lot. The toner is a clear liquid with a watery consistency. It feels light on the skin. This is an alcoholic toner and I usually prefer products without alcohol content. As I picked this up online, I was not exactly aware of the ingredient list, but I am glad that it did not cause any adverse reaction on my sensitive skin.
My skin recently had breakouts and I tried everything and nothing really worked. So, I decided to go back to the basics and use a calamine lotion. I decided to try this toner as well as it claims to clear acne. It contains salicylic acid and tea tree oil which prevents acne. I am really happy to share that it helped to control my acne within 4-5 days. It helped to dry out the acne and prevented further breakouts. It removes excess oil from pores and makes my skin soft.
Though I have combination skin, it looks oily after 2-3 hours of the application of this toner. I have large skin pores and this toner did nothing to reduce the size of pores. It is a nice pore clearing toner, removes all impurities from my skin and cleanses my skin, pore by pore. Every time I use this toner, I observe dirt and impurities coming out from my face on the cotton pad. Overall, I liked the results of this product. I loved how nicely it works on my skin but I would not repurchase it because of its alcoholic formulation, I would rather opt for some herbal toner.
