Acnex Purifying Solution
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 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 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.
