An in-depth review of the Isntree BHA exfoliating toner

My Experience with the dual care powerhouse

Throughout my late teens and mid-twenties, I suffered from the worst case of acne which later led me on a journey of low self-confidence and self-esteem. After years of numerous visits to the dermatologist, my skin miraculously took a turn for the better. All this to say that the condition of our skin can really take a toll on our mental well-being.

Not to age myself, but back then there wasn’t a lot of focus on skincare. If we really think about it, it only grew in popularity a few years ago. Today, when we talk about skincare, we cannot help but think of Korean beauty. People just cannot get enough of the “glass skin” phenomenon and the products they use to help them achieve the look.

Likewise, in this blog I’m going to be talking about a K-beauty product that has changed my skincare routine. A gentle but effective product that does exactly what it claims. No ifs or buts. I came across the Isntree Chestnut BHA 2% Clear Liquid when I was complaining to my colleague about my enlarged pores and  acne marks. She, being a self-proclaimed K-beauty connoisseur suggested that I give the product a chance. And from that day onwards, you can say that I have emptied a dozen bottles of it.

Best exfoliating toner for sensitive skin

This gentle exfoliating toner has been my go-to lately, and I’m excited to share what changes it has done to my skin which still has (acne) battle scars. The Isntree Chestnut BHA 2% Clear Liquid has effectively removed my dead skin cells, reduced excess sebum, and (my worst enemy) blackheads with the power of BHA, leaving my skin looking clean and revitalized. One of the things I love most about this toner is its nourishing formula. Enriched with a vitamin-rich seaweed extract complex, it not only cleanses but also hydrates and nourishes my skin, promoting a healthy and radiant complexion. Plus, it’s packed with plant-based ingredients like willow bark, purslane, and chamomile extracts, which soothes even my sensitive skin.

Before and after rubbing the Isntree Chestnut BHA on the face

  • On a cleansed face, saturate a cotton pad with the liquid or dispense directly onto your palm.
  • Sweep on the face.
  • Allow to absorb into the skin before following with an essence.

A piece of advice that I personally received and something I would like to pass on to you too is to start slow with the product. If you have super sensitive skin or a damaged skin barrier, I suggest you apply a moisturizer before the toner. Begin by using it just twice a week, and if your skin responds well to the product, you can gradually increase the frequency.

If you’re on the hunt for an exfoliating toner that does it all, look no further. Isntree Chestnut 2% BHA Clear Toner has become my holy grail product for achieving clear, refreshed, and glowing skin. Give it a try, and I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do!
