This is Great
I wish I'd taken a before picture before I began using this on my back. Alas, over the last 22 years that I've suffered with moderate acne on my back I've become so accustomed to things not working that it didn't even cross my mind. I bought a sample size and within just a few days of use morning and evening I've gone from having half a dozen rather large and painful pimples at a time in addition to numerous small bumps, clogged pores, and blackheads to just having one or two pimples (far smaller, less sore, and shorter lasting than before) and the rest of my skin is starting to feel nice and smooth (meaning fewer clogged pores, blackheads, and small bumps). I'm confident with further use those will continue to dry up and go away. I've used a variety of the standard preparations and cleansers and only had minimal success with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. I like to use this by pouring a very small amount in a clean container (one that some anti-acne cleaning pads came in) and adding several cotton rounds to make my own convenient cleaning pads that are ready to use when I need them. I have found that this does seem to be a bit drying however combining it with a good and gentle lotion seems to balance things out nicely. I never thought that I'd have this much luck with a product. I'm sure this sounds pretty cheesy but I'm sure you can imagine the feeling if you've suffered with acne for an extended period of time without luck. It's definitely worth giving a shot.

Totally Amazing! This is the best product I have purchased so far. It does exactly what it says it does in the description. You tend to get your hopes up when you have acne break outs when you see a product that can possibly help you only to be disappointed after using it. Well, not this one. I was beginning to get very good results with the Mandelic products and decided to add this in too. This and the combination of the mandelic peel and serum after using for two weeks, has resulted in my skin becoming COMPLETELY clear! I haven't had that it 15 years. This is a must try for anyone with acne/breakout issues, and it's tightened my my pours and my skin is soft. I tried the trial so now I'm going to order a 10 year supply in case they decide to stop making it. I'm not a review type of person even though I love every product I've bought, including the mandelic cleanser which is awesome and the green tea moisturiser is so gentle and not greasy, but wanted to make sure I did this because it's an issue I know many women have to suffer and it's horrible. Good luck.

I'm 47 yrs old and have suffered from breakouts all my life. My skin shows it with large pores over my chin and nose area and I've become self-conscious of it combined with aging starting to set in as well. I use this before applying make-up and after washing it off, and haven't had a single break-out. I've also noticed the texture of my skin appears smoother, and make-up goes on easier, not caking and clumping around the large pore areas of my face nearly as bad as it did. I wish I would have taken before and after pictures, because the difference in pore size is amazing after not even two weeks. I love this product and it will become a permanent part of my skincare routine.

Acne Pore toner with Sepicontrol
I have tried all the toners at MUAC and keep coming back to this one product. I battled acne most of my life and I feel this certainly is a key factor in keeping the acne away. i see improvement in my pore size as well. Gentle enough to use with all my other MUAC products. Doesn't dry the skin, just somehow keeps the acne germs at bay. Love it!

Found A Good Use!
Initially, I tried this one my normal/combination, acne prone face as a way to stave off new breakouts. Unfortunately, something (I'm assuming the SD alcohol) dried my face out quite a bit and resulted in oil overproduction. It didn't seem like this product was for me. But when my boyfriend started experiencing breakouts on his back (and for the odd time I experienced a body breakout) this stuff was a miracle. Clears things up in a matter of days, and visibly improves body acne in at least a day! Good stuff.

Another great toner!
So this and the mandelic acid toner are just positively brilliant. So when I eat certain things, my skin flares up. However, I used this and noticed that my skin isn't producing as much white stuff that usually comes along with my acne. It's doing what it says about stopping the bacteria and oil production. I have to admit that i believed I had to fight this stuff internally but this external product is doing wonders for my skin. I'm torn between repurchasing this or the mandelic acid toner? Maybe I can use one during the day, or one at night? Either way, people with acne prone stubborn skin with acne scars should use this.

GREAT Toner!!
I started using this toner along with the Green Tea Pomegranite cleanser and Mandelic/ Salicylic Acid peel in preparation for my wedding this summer. My skin was never really bad to begin with but I did have a very oily T zone, enlarged pores on my nose, forehead and chin and lots of post-pop scaring on my chin from "monthly break outs". This toner has completely evened out my skin and although it can be a bit drying, skip a day and use it the next and its totally fine. My pores are way smaller, my break outs are next to nothing and can be cured in a day or two. As for the scaring, there's another product that was recommended but in combination with the peel they are fading. I don't know if it's the peel or a combination of everything, but the fine lines on my forehead are gone as well. My skin is shiny and healthy. I LOVE this stuff!!

Keeps away rosacea flares
For the past 2 years I was experiencing bumpiness on my cheeks and flushing that would come and go. During a particularly bad flare I visited an aesthetician for help and she told me I had rosacea. The dermatologist prescribed metro gel but it just made my problem worse. My skin was raw, bumpy and burning and I didn't know what to do. I had purchased this toner some time ago, and started applying it at night before my Uplevity serum and in one week it completely cleared my rosacea flare. My skin is smooth and nearly bump free, and no flushing; the texture is constantly improving and I have not had a flare since I started using this toner. I realize this product wasn't specifically created to treat rosacea and I wasn't expecting much but I figured since nothing else had worked for me at that point just maybe this might. Now I wish I had taken before pics!

Works Well!
Using it as a toner, this pore minimizer cleans my face thoroughly, even picking up some dead skin. It's great at matting my face but I don't think that it helped terribly much with my acne. I still like this product nonetheless!

Okay
I have acne prone, oily skin. I've used almost the whole bottle, I can't say I've seen any results, positive or negative. It didn't dry out my skin and was gentle enough to use two times a day. But it didn't seem to add any real benefit to my normal skin routine. I will be trying something else on my next order. I will say this stuff seems to crystalize around the opening outside the bottle if any spills out, which is weird but nothing too bad that hinders the product usage. ****MUAC Comment: Crystallization of the raw ingredients used in the formula is not unusual. Simply rinse with warm water to remove. Thank you for posting.****

Best skin product for breakouts
This is the best skin product for breakouts I have ever purchased, and I have purchased a lot in my life time. It not only cleared my problem areas, my skin is different. It does close the pores and my skin feels so soft. People have commented how great my skin looks, that has never happened to me. I use it with the mandelic peels and they were working well, this just seemed to be the final piece of the puzzle for me. Everyone should buy this, I tried the small size first because I always do, after 3 or 4 days I was elated. I have the bigger size now and I hope they never stop making this.

Perfect toner for acne prone skin
I use this in tandem with the Mandelic Acid Cleanser and it works great! Other toners I've used tend to have a terribly strong, rubbing alcohol smell, but this one has a more mild scent and doesn't make my eyes burn! Works great on my sensitive, acne prone skin. Would definitely recommend!

Miracle in a bottle
MIRACLE TREATMENT!! My son had tried from accutane oral treatment for 3 months which cleared temporarily and tried all prescription and over the counter acne cream. We tried the mandelic and salicylic too but with minimal results and then this comes along. Before using it he had acne all over his face and then one week had passed, his face was clear. I was shocked as I havent seen his face acne free since he stopped accutane. I need to order more of these so he wont run out. See for yourself!! Im so hyped!

Another Holy grail product from MUAC!
Like most of the products I have tried from MUAC, this one did not disappoint! I use this morning(after the sea mineral toner) and evening (before the mandelic acid toner) and its been a great addition to my skincare routine. I have very large pores on my nose, and I produce a lot of oil on my nose, and this has helped immensely. I no longer have the need to blot my nose midday, so it's great for oil control. It has a lot helped to keep my breakouts at a minimum- I have maybe one small breakout every other week now, as opposed to the 2-3 breakouts a week I used to have. I don't think this has minimized the size of my pores really, but by lessening the amount of oil they produce, they are less noticeable. I think it's well worth adding to your routine, and I will continue to purchase it.

Wonderful
I'm a 27 year old Black girl with combo oily skin. For some reason I was hit with breakouts for an entire year. I grew up with fairly acne free skin but for some reason, entering into my 20s my skin started acting crazy. I wish I would have known about this stuff when I was dealing with those crazy breakouts!. I deal with post inflammatory hyper pigmentation, so I deal with acne scarring that can lasts up to a year. Since using this product I haven't had a break out at all, LIKE ZERO,NADA. It's really crazy because when I read reviews I'm always rolling my eyes like yeah uh huh, riiight. But no!, This product has done wonders for me. The only drawback for me is that I have combo oily skin so this product does feel a little coating to my face so sometimes I'll dilute it with a little water but other than that, it's so worth it. I have literally sat int he bathroom staring into the mirror and have said, wow I haven't had a breakout in like a year. Amazing, go buy it now.

I use this every night. I think out of all the toners i've tried this one is best for me. It doesn't hurt my skin after it dries, like it doesn't dry my skin out and I feel that unbearable dry feeling. My skin isn't irritated or red despite it being a cleansing, astringent like toner. I have sensitive skin. I cannot use AHA's/BHA's.

Not for me
Its possible that I didn't give this product enough time, but I didn't see a difference after three weeks. I was using it between weekly 40% lactic acid peels, cleansing morning and evening with the green tea cleanser and following with the hyaluronic serum. In defense of this product, I will say it definitely did not overdraw my skin. It's also possible that I would have seen better results using a different peel with this product.

This is the first toner I have found that does not leave my face dry and flaky. It makes my face feel so fresh. I started w/trial size, and by the very next week, I had purchased full size product. I'm impressed and I love it.

Love this product
This product is amazing and it started working right away. I did not really get teenage acne- my body saved it all up for my adult years. I have tried everything- expensive, drug store, special order big name brands and I could not find anything that worked. I would always try each new product for 1 month but they just didn't help. Major $$ in partly used products. This started working right away. I do use this toner in combo with the Blemish Buster cleanser. It is so nice that both are fragrance free as I have allergies to so many things (contact dermatitis). After using this, my skin feels great- not greasy and not too dry. However, I was reluctant to try it because of the methylisothiazolinone. I do have allergic reactions to so many things and I am a bit worried that this could get added to my list if I use it for too long- is there any way that this could be made without adding the methylisothiazolinone? I don't want to have to ever stop using it as it actually works!
