              I use this twice a day after washing my face and before putting on my moisturizer. I definitely notice a difference in my skin when it's not in use. This brightens my skin, evens my tone and keeps my breakouts to a minimum. Does not leave a residue and doesn't have a strong scent.

                I use this product after I removed my makeup and cleansed my face. Never liked toner because I've experienced badly with them until I came upon this and thought I would give it a try. This doesn't break me out at all compared to all other toners out there. I believe this had kept my acne at bay and I'm on my second bottle.

                      • Q:

                        I have combination skin and I am looking to start a skincare regimen. My concerns are Acne, Blackheads/pores, and scarring. After doing some research this is what I have come up with for my night time regimen:
                        Cleanser: Acne Facial Cleanser
                        Toner: Special Cucumber Lotion
                        Moisturizer: ???
                        Exfoliant(sp?) : Glycolic Acid Toner
                        Mask: Whitening Mask

                        My questions are: What would you recommend for a moisturizer? Also, what product would you recommend for me to use to kind of top everything off? How often/frequent should I use each product? What product/kind of product should I look for to use in the mornings?

                          The Special Cucumber Lotion will help reduce current breakouts and prevent future acne. This product will help gently deep cleanse the skin and reduce any pore clogging build up. This product is a great option if you are concerned about the appearance of pores. Our Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is also a great option 2-3 times per week on oily skin - this will help reduce congestion and breakouts while minimizing the appearance of pores.

                        Hi there- I have dry sensitive skin but I'm super prone to acne. I'm currently using the orange cleaning soap at night with the oil free moisturizer and the enzyme cleansing gel in the morning with the collagen moisturizer during the day. I use the strawberry face scrub, anti acne serum and glycolic foaming cleanser each 1-2 times a week and the flower & tonic mask and the healing & soothing mask once a week. Would this be a good toner/lotion to add? Am I using too many products? Should I cut any out? Add any?

                          Special Cucumber Lotion is a toner that is recommended for oily, acne prone skin. If you have dry or sensitive skin, I would opt for a more universal toner like our Seaweed Cleansing Lotion. This product will help reduce breakouts without drying the skin.
