My chin is the most acne prone area on my face.
Lately i've been getting one or two zits every month during the hormonal phase.
And you know how annoying pimples can be even if it is just one.
So i've added AC Clinic set to my daily skin care regime for the past one month.
Read on to know more about the products and if it worked for me or not.
AC clinic range is a part of the Etude House acne treatment line.
I got mine from w2beauty.com

150 ml each
AC CLINIC TONER-
It comes in a glass bottle and so it might not be travel friendly.
The toner is a watery liquid.
Has a very strong herbal smell that reminds me of Vicks Vaporub and Eucalyptus.
It is pleasant for me .
I don't know how it would be for some other girls.
HOW I USE IT-
After washing my face with mild face wash ,i apply the toner with a cotton ball all over my face.
Rubbing it lightly inside out.
And wait for it to semi dry.
After that i apply the gel lotion.
It is very light and gets rapidly absorbed leaving the skin soothing.
AC CLINIC GEL LOTION-
Similar to the toner, this also comes in a glass bottle.
I found it somewhat uncomfortable to pour the lotion so i have to hit it against my palm to get the lotion out.
The fragrance again reminds me of eucalyptus.
HOW I USE IT-
After applying generous amount of toner.
I let it semi dry and take a nice lump of the gel lotion and lightly massage it all over the face.
The gel lotion is non sticky and gets absorbed quickly.
Leaves my skin feeling amazingly soft and gives a squeaky clean feeling.

I’m sure alot of people are aware of the popular use of Salicylic Acid in acne care products.
It acts like an exfoliant, working on the epidermis level to slough away the dead skin cells, thereby, opening up the clogged pores.
It will get rid of the cellular debris, bacteria, sebum etc within the follicles and constrict the pore size for new cell growth, reverting to the normal skin-cell replacement cycle.
In this way, it will help to prevent further breakouts.
Hinoki Cypress Extract
“has been recognized as possessing excellent natural antibiotic properties.”
Both the toner and gel lotion are non-comedogenic.
I found that when theses products are used together it greatly helped to soothe my existing zits,reduce the inflammation and heal it.
But it is very time consuming.
I saw the positive result after more than 2 weeks of using it.
Though i am pretty pleased with the result, i must say that this hasn't prevented other zits from popping up even when i'm using them.
I think i have to include the other products in this range to treat the zits more effectively.
You can clearly see the difference bwteen Day 1 and Day 20.
Though right now i am zit free, i am already starting to dread the zit hormonal zit attack :(
I will continue using these products to combat them in addition to a spot treatment product.
Do let me know if any of you have tried AC clinic set :)
