Hi, hi hi! I'm back with another review. I told you on my previous post that I wanted to share new products on my skin care regimen and makeup stash that I'm currently using. So let's start with this toner/cleanser. I'm sure you've seen this product a lot of times and I presume a member or two in the family have tried this. This product has been around if I'm not mistaken since my childhood days and I remember seeing my mother using this before and after washing her face. If you're thinking this toner is classic, yes it is.
Eskinol is classic and very effective that's why until now it's still here unlike other brands being discontinued in the market. When I saw that Janet of Journey on Beauty made a comprehensive review of all Eskinol variants, I'm convinced that the quality of this product has been tested through times and if this is re-formulated I'm sure that the new formulation is way better and improved with added features. I'm so happy that I've got a chance to try this toner because my skin loves it. Read more and see why I repurchased the bigger bottle of this product.
Eskinol provides products which are specifically formulated for the Filipina skin. Its range of products is known to effectively solve oily skin problems and pimples!
Eskinol Facial Deep Cleansers contain Micro-cleanse Anti-Bacterial Formula that removes pimple-causing dirt left from washing with soap. It also removes excess oil and make-up to make your skin truly clean. Use Eskinol Facial Deep Cleanser and avoid pimples and other skin problems from coming back.

What I like:
- The price- cheapest among the toners that I've tried.
- My skin feels squeaky clean after use.
- There's a cooling sensation and just a little sting
- Able to cleanse deep seated dirt and heavy makeup.
- Leaves skin matte and oil-free.
- Wide selection of toners for different skin needs.
- Lightened some dark spots after 2 weeks of every other day use.
What I don't like:
- Caused dryness on some parts of my skin.
Will I repurchase? Yes because truly soap is not enough to cleanse those deep seated dirt.
I give this a 4.75/5 rating. Other than the faint alcohol smell and the dryness, I really liked seeing my face squeaky clean after using this product. I noticed some of my pimple marks have lightened. I'm not saying that this product alone made those blemishes lighter, applying this every other day somehow helped those unsightly dark spots appear less visible. I'm also giddy to try other variants of Eskinol but methinks I need to use this continuously if I really want to see maximum results and if it will make pimple marks vanish after long term use.
Have you tried Eskinol? What's your favorite variant? Thanks for sharing! Happy weekend
