I have been on the acne.org regimen for about 2 and a half months now. I use Cetaphil Cleanser, the Acne.org 2.5% benzoyl peroxide treatment, and CeraVe moisturizing cream. So far so good - I only get about 1-2 pimples a day, which is an improvement.
I wear foundation on a daily basis (Lorac Natural Performance Foundation) so I need a little extra help taking it all off before going to bed. I tend to use Vichy "Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 Calming Cleansing Solution" on a cotton pad to take it all off. Normally this works just fine, but the other day I made the idiotic move of using a toner to ensure that all the makeup came off.
I used "Andalou Naturals Clementine + C Illuminating Toner" and did a test patch on my right cheek. The next day, the entire area was covered in large, deep pimples. What ingredient in this toner would be most likely to cause this reaction? Please help!
Aloe Barbadensis Juice*, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Lauric Acid, Fruit Stem Cells (Malus Domestsica, Solar Vitis) and BioActive 8 Berry Complex*, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Citrus Clementina (Clementine) and Cucumis Melo (Melon) Extracts, Glycolic Acid, Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos), Hibiscus Rosa-Sinensis and Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extracts*†, Phenethyl Alcohol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) and Cymbopogon Martini (Palmarosa) Oils*
Note: It has been 3 days since the breakout, but it is slowly calming down by returning to my old routine. However, I am so scared to use other products after seeing what this so-called "organic" toner did to my skin
