I'm back with another review for one of my favourite Korean skincare brand, Troiareuke, and this time round, we're coming back with a GIVEAWAY! Read on to find out how you can enter, and stand a chance to win the Troiareuke ACSEN TOC Oil Cut Cleanser and ACSEN TOC Toner!
Troiareuke is a Korean skincare brand from MK Universal and I have previously done 2 reviews for them (here
). Their products never fail to impress me and I always end up getting super obsessed with the products I received. Their Troipeel H+ Cushion was featured in one of my favourites video, and the 3 skincare products that I reviewed here
was the only products I was using in my daily skincare routine.
This time round, they have sent me the Troiareuke ACSEN TOC Oil Cut Cleanser and ACSEN TOC Toner
. Since it has been quite awhile since my last review for them, I have actually emptied the toner that was sent to me previously. So, I was super excited when they offered to send me 2 new skincare products which includes a new toner! *Woohoo!*
The ACSEN Oil Cut Cleanser is essentially a facial cleanser, suitable and specialized for acne-prone and sensitive skin. It is supposedly able to remove all the oils and dirt trapped in your pores as well as fine dust, and make-up. Since this is a gel-type cleanser, it does not foam. So unlike most foam cleansers, it does not contain any surfactant which makes it suitable for people with sensitive skin. If you have been following me, you'll know that I love foamy cleansers as I love how squeaky clean it makes my skin feels. But I do have combination (more towards oily!) and acne-prone skin so I'm willing to give this cleanser a shot!
The main ingredients of this cleanser are Papaya
which helps to remove dead skin cells (oooo a little bit of exfoliate, I like!
), Aloe Vera
which moisturizes the skin, and Usnea extract
which provides anti-fungal and antimicrobial (anti-bacteria
After cleansing, my face still feels moisturized without the tight feeling I get with foam cleansers. I wouldn't trust this cleanser to remove all my make-up, so I always use an oil based cleanser to remove any make-up (especially waterproof ones) before going in with this one for a good second step to my double cleansing routine. If you prefer using foam cleansers, try using this as a first step to your cleansing routine (before your foam cleanser) as I find that it helps remove most of my make-up anyway.
Once my face is free from make-up and dirt, it's time to use a toner to prep my skin for the essences and moisturizers I'm applying next. The "TOC" in the ACSEN TOC Toner stands for "Turn Over Cycle", meaning this toner helps to control the turn over cycle of your skin cells, keeping it active and healthy.
Unlike most toner, this toner is slightly thicker and it feels more like a watery gel than plain liquid. It comes with a pump which is so handy as I tend to pour out too much toner. With a pump, I can easily control the amount I need. Applying it on, it feels really cooling and it gets absorbed in really quickly as well. It doesn't have any strong scent to it which is nice. Using a cotton round, you can clearly tell that this toner definitely wipes away all the dust and dirt on your face.
Apart from using it as a regular toner, you can also use it to spot treat your pimples. All you have to do is soak a piece of cotton round (big enough to cover your spot) with the toner and refrigerate it for 10 to 15 minutes. After it's chilled, apply it on to your spot for 15 to 25 minutes or until the cotton round is dry. This will help calm your skin, aiding the healing process.
The main ingredients of this toner are Sulfur (anti-inflammatory and anti-infection), Salicylic Acid (helps to remove excessive keratin and aids in wounds healing), Glycolic Acid (removes dead skin cells), and lastly, Hyaluronic Acid which calms and moisturises.
Once again, I'm extremely impressed with the quality of their skincare products. Without doubt, I'm definitely keeping these in my skincare routine until I run out again. Wanna own these 2 products? Now you can stand a chance to win them by entering the giveaway! All you have to do is:
