For some reason I am being very lazy this January, is it because of the cold or because I’m getting old?!?
Anyway let’s continue our reviews with the second product I received from Swanicoco which is their Bitamin C calm down skin toner.
I must say when I saw Bitamin C , I shrieked a bit … Had a horrible experience with vitamin C and I don’t want to go down that road again… In this case it was just the name.
This is again a product that is quite new to me so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
This toner comes in a white box with explanation of the product in Korean.
To have more details about the product, you actually need to break the box.
This box has an extra layer of protection with again that dr silhouette everywhere.
Once removed, the toner comes in this white plastic tube with the same design as the box.
This toner actually has a pump, so a pump of two is enough.
The plastic cap is also quite hard, and can be a bit annoying to open and close. I guess this is also a good thing if you want to take it with you.
Because this has a pump dispenser you are sure you won’t spill it!
This toner contains 120ml so this will last you at least 3 months if you use it twice a day.
You can find the expiration date of the product at the bottom of the bottle.
I was really surprised that this toner is rose scented… And it can be quite overpowering.
If you’ve tried Mamonde Rose water, it smells like that but with a mix of saliva scent, if you can imagine it. I’m not really a fan of rose scented skincare so this put me off a little.
I was really imagining this of having a citrus scent because of the name “bitamin c” but there was nothing of that sort!
The texture of this scent is watery and clear.
One pump and a half is enough for the whole face.
By itself, this toner doesn’t really seem that special but when I combine it with the other Swanicoco products, I feel this helps in giving me clear looking skin and my skin isn’t as oily.
It is easily absorbed by the skin and does not leave you with a sticky feel.
If this toner wasn’t scented, I think I would like this even more.
I have been using this toner for almost a month and a half and I have seen a difference in the way my skin looks when I use this toner.
It doesn’t smell that good, but it works really well with other Swanicoco products.
The pump is a good sanitized way of getting the product, but if you pump too hard, it can splash you in the eye so be careful!
I would have liked if a part of the plastic bottle was see through so you could immediately see how much of the product is left. It could just be a line with a ruler design for example and you can see how much is left, when it’s time to get a new one.
I also like that they push the consumer to break the box open for more information, but I would have wished for more explanation in English. Graphics and bulletpoints are good, but sometimes you do need more clarifications.
I was very surprised with this product and despite the scent, this is actually a good toner that is helping me have a clear skintone!
Thank you Swanicoco for sending me this product.
See you on the next review.
Note: this product was sent to me for review purposes. This is my honest opinion, no compensation was received for writing this.
