Review – Glytone salicylic acid toner

3 Mar

Ever since I sampled the Proactiv Fading Pads, I’ve been on a quest to find a comparable product that I didn’t have purchase a whole kit to use.

Here is what I thought about the Proactiv.

I started to look for products that have a 2% salicylic acid component like the Fading Pads.  One of the products I found is the Glytone Toner.  You can get this on Amazon and from med spas.

Ingredients – 2% Salicylic acid., Acetone, benzalkonium chloride, fragrance (Parfum), isopropyl alcohol, polysorbate 20, Red 40 (CI 16035), Water (Aqua), Yellow 5 (CI 19140).

Like the Proactiv, this is marketed toward the acne treatment customers.

I am interested in the skin renewing properties that come along with salicylic acid use.

What do I think of the Glytone Toner?

I think I wish it didn’t have acetone and rubbing alcohol as the ingredients.  These are both drying agents, and I’m not really sure what else they do.  Oh yeah, they smell.

Do I think this is on par with the Fading Pads?  Not quite.

I guess it is keeping my skin clear and pores small, but I’m not getting the glowing and the “wow” that I got from Proactiv Fading Pads.

This can be drying and can sting a lot with over use.  Start with one application a day and then move to twice if you prefer.

Will I repurchase?

I will probably look for another alternative first.  If there is nothing else, then I may.
