Swanicoco Bitamin C Calm Down Skintoner Review:
I first got this product as a part of the brand’s supporters event “Swans 2”. But I used it all up, and I loved it, and so did my boyfriend, we ended up getting a second one. Now I already finished it and since winter is almost gone I probably won’t get another one… until October.
It was my second Vitamin C product but as a toner I didn’t expect that much of it, except that obviously I was pleasantly surprised!
It’s not the cheapest toner but obviously it’s inexpensive and good or I wouldn’t be going back to it over and over.

Swanicoco Bitamin C Calm Down Skintoner Review:
Any information you can possibly want is most likely written on the package. I mean just look at the crazy amount of text…
If in the bottle it looks nice, when added to the package I feel it’s a bit too much.
Regardless, at least it leaves no questions asked, right? And yes I destroyed my package just to show these photos.
Swanicoco is one of those brands that updates the packages every now and then, but the product itself has been the same for around 2 years at least. It’s a steady seller, why change something that’s already good? Just update the package!
The bottle comes with a pump that works quite well, then at the end you’re left with around 3mm of product and you can easily open it and pour it into your hands. I know this because I already finished this bottle too, which is my second one, tehe.
The toner has mid-thickness and is completely transparent. I even put it on a transparent bottle against a white background for you to see it.
It’s so easy to use it’s the only product my boyfriend applied himself (he is that lazy).
You can see here how watery it is. It isn’t water, but not that thick either. It absorbs well and leaves no tacky feeling, nor any stuffy feeling whatsoever.
It has a scent of some sort that I can’t identify. It’s fresh and a little sweet… like a fruit. But not like juice, not that sweet. Hate to say it again, but it’s good enough that even a guy likes it.
I apply it between one to three layers, depending on how much my skin eats that day.
It gives an immediate feeling of moisture and nutrition, and my skin tightens (elasticity wise) up right away, you can literally see it in the shape of my pores!
When I have red patches it doesn’t affect them and helps the redness go away. When it’s caused by acne, it also helps the acne itself go away!
It brightens the complexion in general but I don’t have any photos to show you, and I apologize! It’s because the pollution has been high and so the brightening effect doesn’t show. Meaning, it really helps liven up dull skin, but with such a strong pollution it only helps the skin look normal rather than amazing.
But that’s still an amazing achievement for a toner.
You can see in the image the toner is absorbed well even after 3 layers. And whereas my skin doesn’t really need three layers, I like to give it as much toner as it needs, so that it doesn’t overly absorb the other products. Imagine using a heavier anti-aging essence every day, with an appropriate toner amount I use 3 drops, without the toner it goes to 6 drops or a full squeeze even… see? It makes a difference, especially on the wallet!
On and on I could say many things about this toner, but the main one is that it delivers in all its promises. It doesn’t make the pores worse. It matches my dehydrated combination skin, without harming the allergies. It matches my boyfriend’s reeeeally dry skin.
I recommend it if you’re concerned about any of the things they said, or if you want to try Vitamin C I think this would be a good start.
As I said, I’ll probably get my third bottle once the summer passes!
