Review: Celeteque Dermoscience Acne Solutions Oil Control Toner

If you have read my post about Celeteque Sun Care Facial Moisturizer, you know that I’m a bit disappointed with it because it makes my skin really oily most of the time. However, that doesn’t hinder me from getting another product from the same brand. This time, I got their Acne Solutions Oil Control Toner. I actually had doubts about this but seeing that it is available in small bottle which is ideal when you are just testing a product, I decided to buy one.

The toner comes in a clear transparent bottle with white flip top cap. The toner is also clear, looks like water to me.  The 60 ml. bottle I got costs Php 89 and the bigger one is probably less than Php 200.

Product Description:
  • Contains Aloe Vera and Chamomile extracts which help soothe the skin.
  • Reconditions the skin to prepare it for moisturizing.


What I like about this product:
The first thing I like about the product is its size. As what I’ve said, it is available in smaller size which is ideal if you are not sure whether the product will work on your skin or not. My biggest reason for getting this toner is the list of ingredients. Some of its ingredients include glycerin, aloe vera, chamomile extract and witch hazel extract. In fact, of all the skin care products that I’ve tried, this is one of the products in which most of the ingredients are easy to pronounce. LOL!

This didn’t cause tingling or burning sensation the first time I use it. I feel like I am applying water on my face, not toner. The only time I felt that tingling sensation is when I washed my face using facial scrub prior to applying the toner. I think there might be some abrasions caused by the scrub’s granules, and the abrasions reacted to the toner since it has ethyl alcohol.

While this toner hasn’t been successful in making my face totally oil free, it gives that dewy appearance. A day after using this, my guy complimented me for having that “glow”. I know part of it is due to the organic soap (Cyleina Black Pearl soap) and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Cream foundation I am using but I believe that the toner has also contributed to that glow.

I have been using this for two weeks now and it hasn’t caused me major breakouts, just one or two small pimples that are gone in a few days. Apart from that, Celeteque Dermoscience Acne Solutions oil control toner is not making my skin dry nor itchy.

What I do not like about this product:
The only thing I do not like about this product is its inability to get rid of that oily face… TOTALLY! But then, the blame isn’t entirely on this toner. I might need to look for facial wash or moisturizer that would work best with this toner.

Will I repurchase?
Perhaps. I kind of like the result so far.

  1. Me too, I don't like its smell, but it didn't trigger my skin allergies. Hindi din nag pantal yung sa may cheeks ko (Usually kasi nag papantal sya kapag hindi ko hiyang yung gamit ko). Mag six months ko din syang ginagamit, So far ok naman at wala naman akong problemang na encounter. I bought my oil control toner at (, for a cheap price. Katamad kasing pumunta sa watsons at makipag siksikan sa mga tao. Thanks for sharing!
