Salycilic Acid is very good for acne, because it dissolves oil and excess sebum trapped deep in the pore. Niacinamide is also very good for acne. It improves skin tone and texture, fades dark spots, and has been known to soothe irritation.

Salicylic acid breaks me out but everyone’s skin is different so if it works for you keep using it:)

Alcohol is drying and irritating for the skin.
Salicylic acid is great for acne and pimples
Glycerin and Panthenol are hydrating
Centella Asiatica Extract is VERY good for your skin and is rarely found in skincare, even though it is very soothing and hydrating.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (aloe) is also hydrating and soothing for the skin.
Niacinimide is great for oily skin, because it controls the sebum (oil) production , it helps to fade acne scars and makes pores appear smaller.
Parfum (fragrance) is also irittating and has no benefits, and because u have sensitive skin, I would not use this product.

Overall this product is an ok, because it contains alot of alcohol which will be drying for the skin.
Tonic isn‘t a necessary step in a skincare routine, for your acne you can use the cerave acne cream foaming cleanser.
It is very good .

Hope I helped you, have a good day

Hi friend,
Acne is a common skin issue faced by people of all ages. When our hair follicles get obstructed with oil and dead skin cells, it appears in the form of acne. This is a chronic situation that comes in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, or pimples. People with all skin types face issues related to acne and there are many acne treatment products approved by dermatologists that we can use.
You are having acne-prone, combination, sensitive skin. Salicylic acid, niacinamide, alpha hydroxy acids, sulfur, glycerin and benzoyl peroxide are good ingredients that help to remove acne. Parfum is not much good for acne-prone skin. For some people, it makes the skin drier.

Black Cumin and Camellia seeds. I just love them! My 20-year acne problem is a thing of past now. I used this to kill acne. And now I use this to prevent acne. Simple and effective!

Hi there! I can definitely understand the concern about ingredients and their effects on sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have a similar skin type, and I've found that some of the key ingredients in this list, like salicylic acid and centella asiatica extract, can actually be really helpful in keeping breakouts under control. However, alcohol can be drying and potentially irritating, so it's important to keep an eye on how your skin reacts. In addition to paying attention to ingredients, I've also found that incorporating regular skin care treatments into my routine has made a huge difference in keeping my skin looking healthy and youthful. I personally love getting regular facials and using at-home LED light therapy masks, as they help to boost collagen production and leave my skin looking glowing.

I see it's been a while, but I wanted to chime in. From your list, it looks like your dermatologist-approved tonic contains some ingredients that are generally considered beneficial for acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid, for example, is a common ingredient in acne treatments due to its ability to exfoliate and unclog pores. If you're unsure it's right for you, I suggest visiting a specialist at, as he helped me to clear my skin. Good luck!
