Product Review: Flawless RG Skin Care Kit: RG Facial Toner

Have you already read my review on the RG Soap? Not yet? Hmmm... Click here, to view it. ^__^

Next in line is the RG Facial Toner. =)

It's rare for me to use toners. I am hesitant to use toners because it makes me think that it'll burn my skin. Hahaha! Silly, right? It's because I thought they're the same with astringents, which is not. Toners are different from astringents because the latter contain alcohol. But both works as cleanser and exfoliator.  ^__~

This year started my serious journey on skin care. The word I used was, "serious" and you ask why. It's because for years, I only relied on washing my face and nothing else. I was not religious in using anything on my face except for makeup and facial cleansers.

I could say that having PCOS turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because it taught me to care more for my skin. Looking at the bright side, eh? Teehee!!! =D

On to the review... More after the jump! ^__^

What it claims... 
      Restores the skin's natural pH balance and inhibits acne. 
How to use:
     Using a cotton ball or pad, apply on face and neck. Use twice a day after cleansing.

Looking at the left photo, you can see a significant change in my skin's texture. =)

Puffy face? I took this a few minutes after getting out of bed... Dedicated, huh? Hahaha!!!

August 29
 I still have some acne marks but it's better than having the actual (and painful) acne. =D

Not yet completely cleared up but at this rate, I am loving the change in my skin. =)

August 31
Acne marks are starting to disappear gradually. =)

Emote? Hahaha!!!

A few zits starting to sprout... but looking at my skin's condition here made me happy. =)

More photos of my progress on the final part of my review. ^__^

What I love about it...
  • I'm hesitant in using toners, because I used to think that they'll "burn" my skin. Good thing, the RG Toner are one of those kinds with a gentle formula. =)
  • Definitely helped shrink my pores. A plus for me! ^__^
  • Didn't dry out my skin. Eliminated the oil but kept my skin moist.
  • Has a nice scent. Just like the soap, it doesn't smell anything manly or musky. ^__^
  • In terms of packaging, it has a classy feel. =)

What I don't love about it...
  • None that I could think of... Well, except the same thing about the RG Soap. There's no list of ingredients. =D

     As for the price, I am not sure about the price of this one. This one was included in a set, which costs P600. I'll update this post once I get an info. =)

Where to buy?
     You can buy it and other Flawless products in their clinics.

Whom would I recommend this to?
    This toner is best for people with acne-prone and oily skin. It does help eliminate dirt and oil that can't be removed with only cleansing. It is important to get rid of these zit-causing stuff. Toners also help maintain the skin's pH, keeping it healthy.


4 out of 5
A "Real Gentleman"! =D

  • Using cotton balls is okay, but if I had cotton pads, it would be more eco-friendly. I guess I better go out and look for them! =D
  • No cotton balls/pads around? Put a few drops of the toner and pat it on your face directly. It'll work just the same. Feels more refreshing, too! ^__~
  • Whatever kind of toner you use, always follow with moisturizer. For people who have more time, are OC, or are into the Asian skin care routine, you can follow toners with a mask, essence, serums, etc. 

There goes my two cents on the RG Facial toner. I hope it helped you! ^__^

How does acne affect you? What do you do about it?

Do watch out for the third product. The RG Day and Night Cream. ^__^
