Skinetica xxx

Skineticais UK based skin toner, that really shouts from the rooftops about its brand. It only uses 4 ingredients in every bottle and they even says its fast acting, skin clearing and kind to skin. They don't use any harsh chemicals and great for people who suffer with oily, acne skin.



I was really intrigued to give this a go, as we all know my skin can be a douche from time to time!!! Although, I have to say, before I tried this, its been really great....hurahhhh!


I cleansed my face as per usual and then I grabbed my cotton wool pads and poured on the Skinetica solution on to it. There is a slight smell to the solution, but its not potent. It just smells very clean and fresh. I ran the cotton wool all over my face, avoiding the eye area and just waited for the wetness to dry. This process doesn't take long at all. Once it had dried, I then took my everyday moisturiser and slapped a good old dollop on to my face and rubbed it in. So nothing has changed in my skin care, apart from the Skinetica toner.


The Results

In one of my YouTube video's, I went on about the toner from boots a lot. It costs about £1.70, and for me, as a toner, it does a great job without irritating my skin. So Skinetica had a lot to live up too and for £9.99, it had to work wonders right?

WRONG! My skin broke out massively and it's just recovering. Now I know that my skin (as said before) can be bad. However, it has been great and I think I have really found my niche to good skin. I don't think I will ever have great skin, but I know for a fact that Skinetica made it worse. I had many dry patches, which is very unlike my skin, as I am super oily. Plus my skin felt really tight and crispy. I only tried this for 4 days and it just didn't work for me and I paid the price hugely. 

I don't want to put any you off, as what may not work for me, it could work for you. Also, I panic a lot about my skin and in fairness, Skinetica Toner could have been a new product for my skin to get used to. But I couldn't give any more time to try, as I was looking like a pizza face! Not so yummy! But as soon as I stopped using it, my skin seemed to be calmer. The only thing I can think of that didn't agree with me, is the ethyl alcohol.

I'm sorry that this was a thumbs down review. If you have tried this and it has worked for you, then please leave me a comment below.

Big Love

  1. I tried this product and used up the whole bottle. I thought it was refreshing to use and helped 'wake you up' a bit but after using the entire bottle can honestly say it didn't really help any of my skin issues. It didn't break me out like it did you, but it didn't work wonders for me either. Although I had a friend use it who seemed to like it (but she had perfectly lovely skin anyway).
