First up: tone. For this, I am using the MediCube Red Toner which is said to be able regular excessive sebum with patented ingredient, Ovalicin, derived from Cordyceps (冬中夏草). It also included some 19 over botanical extracts and oils that are renowned for their anti-acne properties. Some of these include Willow Bark, Tsubaki, Hyacinth, Ginger Root, Grapefruit Seed, Cornflower, Chamomile, and others. Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, Colloidal Sulfur and Tea Tree Oil can also be found in the formula.
In terms of texture, it has this beautiful gel-to-water quality. If you’re like me who uses an exfoliating toner immediately after cleansing, you’d enjoy pouring the Red Toner onto your palm and patting it in. Designed for acne, oily skin users, the alcohol content will help the active ingredients penetrate the skin better.
This is a really interesting product formulation. On paper, the high alcohol content reads badly for the skin, but in reality, on my skin, it really works well to control the pimples and prevent further aggravation. It doesn’t even feel dry nor irritated! Now, this could also be due to me patting the toner in instead of swiping with a cotton pad. I guess I am lucky my skin can tolerate alcohol, but I will probably swap this out with another hydrating toner once my skin settles and only keep it for emergency use only.
