It's just alcohol, pretty good at killing bacteria, thats why its in mouthwash. Thats whats usually in a toner. Drying though!
Alcohol in non drinkable products are messed around with to keep customs and excise (ATF) happy.
Smirnoff Blue Label Vodka as part of a regimen! eusa_think.gif


Morning & Night...Wash face with any 2% SALICYLIC ACID Wash (Neutrogena, Clearasil Ultra...etc), lather on damp face and neck for 60 seconds, rinse thoroughly with warm and then cold water, then air dry. Thats it! If shaving use SALICYLIC ACID wash as lather, wet shave with Bic single blade razor, rinse and then do above. If you must pop a whitehead disinfect (Dettol, TCP, Tea Tree Oil,2% SALICYLIC ACID gel..etc) hands and whitehead area before and after popping. Staph infections happen if you pick and squeeze, so avoid doing so. Low body fat makes you prone to infection, slow healing, and anxiety(picking). Take a multi vit/min & eat well.
Based on independent clinical studies:
Salicylic Acid:Superb kerolytic and antimicrobial...

This post reminded me of smgt. Well in school we did this lab exp where we test how effective different solutions are in killing /inhibiting bacteria. Listerine was one of the solutions. And it did nothing much to kill the bacteria. When we incubated the plate, bacteria grew all over the spot. ugh. No wonder they always say "use with regular brushing"

Float like a cadillac, sting like a beamer. KACHOW!

I think so too. The alcohol content is 26.9%...anyone who has used listerine knows how harsh it is. It'll make you red like Rudolph the Red Face reindeer.
