What is Mentholatum Acnes Powder Lotion?

Mentholatum Acnes Powder Lotion is an acne-fighting toner. Mentholatum claims it to be a skin-clearing toner that is specially formulated with medicated acne-fighting powder which eliminates pimple-causing bacteria while minimizing excessive sebum. This then helps to keep skin smooth and pimple-free. The upper layer lotion is to hydrate skin while the lower layer is an oil control powder that absorbs excess sebum.

My Thoughts on Mentholatum Acnes Powder Lotion

Looking into the full list of ingredients for Mentholatum Acnes Powder Lotion, its active ingredients are Centella Asiatica components which are Asiaticoside, Madecassic Asid, Asiatic Acid. It also contains Aloe Vera for soothing and Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)for brightening. However, it contains Alcohol and the INCI list don't look so great for my skin.

It comes in a clear hard plastic bottle with a flip cap. This toner does not come with outer packaging, instead, it's wrapped with a clear film. The clear bottle makes it easy to see the 2 different types of lotion inside so when the bottle is shaken you can see if it's properly well.

This milky coloured toner is very watery and runny which makes it easy to absorb into the skin. It's not sticky and it leaves a cooling sensation on the skin.

It has quite a strong scent, kinda reminds me of some kind of medication but I can't remember which one.

I have only tried this toner a few times but after that, I couldn't use it anymore. This is because it feels very drying on my skin after application. And looking into the INCI list, it contains Alcohol and Ascorbic Acid which my skin is rather sensitive with. I didn't experience a breakout though, so before I did I just stopped using it since I didn't like how it felt. 

Overall Thoughts
Mentholatum Acnes Powder Lotion may not be for me but I'm sure that this may be a great toner for some of you. The price is very affordable and easily found in drugstores too.
