First thing first, why vinegar? If you’re a BTS army, you’d probably knew that one of their member, Jungkook apparently cleared his acne by using ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar). Yes, ACV is good for acne, because it helps to get rid of bad bacterias and lower the skin’s pH (FYI, acne sufferers tend to have a higher pH). I used to drink them on daily basis, but couldn’t bear the scent. So, when ACV finally made it as skincare ingredients, I can’t help but to try them.
Let’s dig deeper to each of these two ACV based toner, shall we?
Both are fungal acne safe, by the way.
Made in USA
Claim: Oil-absorbing toner, leaves skin clearer and smoother
- Only contains three ingredients.
- Can be use as clarifying hair product
- It comes in a spray bottle
Price: IDR 200K for 237ml
- It still contains Damask Rose Oil, so if your skin is sensitive to oil, I do not recommend this.
- The scent is more vinegary than rosy if you know what I mean. This smells stronger and linger longer than Gallinée ones.
Made in France
Claim: Soothe & reduce redness in sensitive skins, purify & exfoliate oily skin.
- Contains prebiotics to support the skin microbiome
- Using ACV infused with Hibiscus (I guess this also help to reduce the smell).
Price: IDR 451K for 200ml
- Yes, it smells like vinegar, but not as strong and lingering as Heritage Store.
- I dislike the flip-top cap, though, it might get messy and sticky on the top with longer uses.
