Review: Nivea Visage Deep Pore Control Toner

I have been wanting to buy this toner for the longest time ever but one thing that stops me from doing so is the size. This variant only comes in one size, 200 ml, which for me is too large when I am just testing a product. But since this is one of the reasonably priced products suited for my needs, I finally gave in.
Nivea Visage Deep Pore Control Toner comes in a slim mint green bottle. Considering my less than perfect vision, I initially thought that the bottle is white and the green hue comes from the toner itself. When I started using the toner after washing, it was when I realized that the bottle is the one that is mint green, not the toner. LOL! Silly me!

I use this toner twice a day; in the morning after washing my face with Cyleina Black Pearl soap and in the evening after washing my face with either BP or St. Ives Apricot Scrub. It’s been more than a month since I started using this Nivea Visage Deep Pore Control toner and below is my verdict…

Product Description:
Thoroughly cleanses skin and regulates skin's oil production without drying it out.


What I like about this product:
This product doesn’t sting, even just once or even if I swipe the cotton near my eyes. It is so light that sometimes I feel like I am applying water, not toner. It doesn’t cause that tight feeling on the face nor cause dry, itchy skin. I particularly love how this toner removes the remaining traces of makeup. Even if I thoroughly wash my face with soap or facial wash and water, I can still see traces of makeup and dirt on the cotton after applying the toner. Imagine the product build up it may cause if I am not using a toner… geeez! Indeed, it deeply cleanses and purifies the skin.

After using for more than a month, I noticed that the blackheads on my face lessened. They’re no longer as big and prominent as before.  Though the blackheads have not totally disappeared, the toner (with the help of steaming) prevented them from getting worse.

The product claims to have the skin’s own carnitine and lactic acid, two ingredients said to regulate the production of oil within the pores. Moreover, this toner also contains aloe vera which helps soothe the skin. The toner does have a light smell but then, it doesn’t claim to be unscented. The smell is too light that you won’t mind applying it even near your nose.

The 200 ml costs Php 169 and will probably last for more than months when used twice daily.

What I do not like about this product:
While I noticed that this toner prevents new blackheads from occurring, this cannot remove the deep-seated ones. I have been using this for more than a month already but until now, I still can see some blackheads around my nose (I also steam and use facial scrub once every week). Other than that, there is nothing I really do not like about this toner.

Will I repurchase?
Possibly! But I still have to try other brands of toners before deciding if I really should settle on this.
