Acnex Purifying Solution
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mels13 from Helps with cystic acne I bought this quite some time ago and really just forgot about it like most things. It does have a bit of a medicinal smell, but I can forgive that because of actually does wonders for black heads/white heads/cystic pimples. I apply this only to the spots that irritated because it is really high percentage of glycolic acid. (%10). The salicylic alongside that really helps to kill the bacteria. I always recommend this to people because it works. But a lot of people prefer known brands with perfume... pretty packaging and a mainstream reputation. It’s great for people who just wanna gain control of their acne. I never use it as a toner because it’s too strong. I suppose I could if I built my tolerance and used it minimally (2x / week). But don’t feel necessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shshs from Does what it should! I bought this as I wanted to use an AHA product, and this was a bonus as it has both an AHA (glycolic acid) and BHA (salicylic acid) in it! It does unclog pores and brings pimples to a head faster, so that your skin heals faster. However, it is a bit sticky on your face after applying, but you are supposed to rinse off AHA/BHAs about 30 minutes after applying anyways. Like another reviewer said, the pump is quite powerful, so you'll have to be gentle to get the amount you want. I don't mind the smell, but it's definitely not intended to be perfumey like other toners.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rose_petal from Odd-smelling toner I thought I would try this after using the Vichy Normaderm toner containing similar ingredients. I love that toner but wanted to switch things up. I have combination skin and tend to have a lot of congestion in my T-zone. This purifying solution has an odd smell to it and although I have only been using it for a couple of weeks, I haven't seen much difference. I also don't particularly like the dispenser -- the pumping mechanism is a little too powerful and if you don't have your cotton pad fully covering the top, the solution sprays everywhere. Overall, not particularly impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by c4ity from Perfect Solution I’ve been using this for several months now, and it really helps to keep my acne under control. The lack of alcohol is great to not over-produce oil on the skin. It is a chemical exfoliant, so SPF is a must, but is great for controlling the acne under the skin. Just make sure to use hydrating and moisturizing ingredients following this product to balance the skin and not leave it dry.
