Troiareuke Acsen Toc Toner
I first heard about Troiareuke 4 more years ago. From what I understand they’re a dermatology clinic standard skincare brand who have their own Spa, but have since made their products available to the public. The first item I tried from their Acsen line is the ‘Toc Toner’. The toner’s name appropriately includes the abbreviation ‘TOC’, meaning “turn over cycle’. Throughout life our skin’s turn over cycle, including the ability to heal & repair itself; becomes slower thus causing dead skin cells to build up & cause textural issues, as well as prolonging how long it take for blemishes to diminish. This toner aims to speed up our turn over cycle to maintain healthy, clear skin. Along with other products in the Acsen line, this toner uses Glycolic acid & Centella Asiatica to create the ideal balance for acne-prone & sensitive skin types.
My opinion – I like the slight grapefruit scent, it’s somewhat refreshing in the morning time. Without a doubt it keeps dead skin cells at bay, especially in hard to reach places or aren’t irradiated by cleansing alone. It doesn’t irritate my skin, but it doesn’t accompany well with some types of products which you would layer on top of it… For example, when I used hydrogel eye patches on top of this toner, my skin felt sore with a heated sensation. As long as you use other skincare with a similar or lower pH level to the toner, you shouldn’t experience any sensitivity issues. Just keep things balanced. I like to use this day & night, as it doesn’t dry out my skin & hasn’t caused breakouts regardless of frequent usage.
Troiareuke Acsen Oil Cut Cleansing
This can simply be described as a hypoallergenic, oil-free gel cleanser. It removes excess sebum without depriving skin of hydration. A notable direction for use, is that is should be applied to skin with not moist hands & a dry face – massage across your face before rinsing with lukewarm water for best results.
