Oriflame Pure Skin Black Head Toner claims to prevent break-outs and help clean existing black heads. One of the main ingredients (36%) is ethanol.
I am not a huge fan of the scent. It’s a standard scent of this particular line of Oriflame products — Pure Skin. It doesn’t annoy me, but it doesn’t inspire me either. I’m trying to find adequate words to describe it, but have none so far.
I did get less blackheads on my cheeks, and on my nose too. My chin, on the other hand, especially closer to my jawline, became practically covered with them, with the added beauty of rather prominent pimples.
This toner is drying. Small wonder — the alcohol volume of this stuff is close to that of vodka. Such an attack simply provoked the skin oil production, hence the result of flaky skin and pimples.
I think my main problem with this toner is the age bracket. I’m acne prone, and I have oily skin, but I’m in my thirties. Oil secretion isn’t as intense as it is in teens. Teenagers, I believe, would love this product.
I wanted to make my brother use this product. His skin is similar to mine, but due to gender difference and testosterone and all that lovely stuff, his skin is more… durable, I figure. Unfortunately, my brother is the type of guy who believes that a man’s face should only be touched with a chainsaw. I’m slowly working on correcting that limited point of view. If that ever happens and he uses this toner, you’ll be the first to know.
I will not be repurchasing this product, however I might give the washer in the series a go. I also heard really good words about a limited edition shower gel from this line – the orange one, with the citrus scent.
