Personal Product Review: Clariderm Astringent #3 Toner

Updated on December 15, 2015

Disclaimer: I'm not paid to do this. I just want to share my personal review on this product. Hope you find this review helpful and do keep reading.

Introduction

This product claims to act as a deep cleanser by removing oil, dirt and other impurities that soap and water leaves behind. I bought the toner for approximately B$2.00 depends on the places from which I bought this item. The toner that I've used is the Clariderm astringent #3 which is for oily skin type. There are also toner for dry and normal skin type available. I have been using this toner around 3 years ago and at one point I did stop using this for a few months due to exams and busy schedule. Before that, I would like to share a few things about my skin. I used to have severe acne on my face and because of this, my face is really oily. I was introduced to this product by my mom as she has been using this toner when she was young.

My first day of using this toner, nothing really happen until the second day. During the second day, my face sting a lot when I try to use the toner because I have lots of pimples but I try to endure the pain. After a few days, my skin began to dries up and dead skin began to build up on the surface of my skin which is pretty annoying to me and makes me look ugly. After using the toner for a few months, my face becomes acne-free and also one shade brighter than before aside from the scars that I have from doing the facial acne removal as well as small bumps/pimples due to hormone. I would like to add that, during my hiatus when I stop using this product for a few months, I was told that my skin becomes darker.

Now, I'm still using this product but I'm planning to find a replacement for this toner because I'm afraid the alcohol contained in the toner may cause more harm to my skin in the future. Maybe I'm going to use tea-tree toner by theBodyShop next as I've heard a lot of good things from this product.

Caution:

  • Only used this toner for 2-3 months and not longer than that

(I haven't done my research well back then. Using this toner for a long time may cause your skin to become sensitive (redness) when comes in contact with the sunlight, and also may darken your skin. If you are planning to use it for a long period of time, try to use it every other day instead of everyday for maintenance.)

  • Only used it during nighttime after shower
  • Not suitable for sensitive skin
  • Not suitable for ages below 17

Pros:

  • Helps clear out most of my acne
  • Brighten up my skin
  • Very cheap
  • Removes dead skin
  • Does not cause breakout

Cons:

  • Strong scent of alcohol
  • Irritate my neck area
  • Makes my skin really dry

Conclusion

Everyone has different skin type and so not everyone will have the same effect that I get from using this toner. If you're planning on using or buying this toner, make sure to always moisturize your skin after using this toner. Anyway, thank you for taking your time reading this. If you have any question you would like to ask, feel free to leave a comment below or ask me through my social media. Have a good day!
