NACIFIC Phyto Niacin Whitening Toner Review

Assalamu'alaykum ^^

As you guys probably know already from my previous reviews, I love Natural Pacific products a lot. Currently they rename their brand to NACIFIC which I believe is the short version of "Natural Pacific", they also reformulated some of their best seller products  the damn serum, Fresh Herb Origin Serum  and came out with new packaging as well. I have no idea about things behind this change however I do think their new packaging concept is better than the previous one. More simple, sleek, and clean.

NACIFIC also launched some new products, and one of them is being Phyto Niacin Whitening Toner which is the toner version of their essence that I love and reviewed here. Without any review, I just instantly add this toner to my shopping bag with a little note in mind that this brand never fails me before. So is this another great skincare product from Natural Pacific? I'll give my opinion and first impression in seconds!

📎 Packaging
The new concept is making NACIFIC looks like a high end brand with luxurious packaging. This toner comes with a white box outside and is stored in a bottle with a white cap. The major difference with previous design is on the surface of the bottle which is not shiny, it's dove so you still can see the product inside and it has texture. It just feels more expensive. It looks heavier as well.

Open date is also provided as well on the bottom back of the bottle. You can fill in the blank space with the date you open the toner in order to be a guide to which date the toner is due. The problem I have with the packaging is actually the hole they have on the very top; it's way to small that it actually takes more time for the toner to come out from the bottom. I might be good for some who are clumsy and often spill their skincare products, however for me, I found this a little bit annoying. 

📌 Formula
Thin and clear, this almost feels like water if only it doesn't smell so bad. I feel like I open a bottle of Betadine which is an antiseptic you use for bleeding wounds. It smells so strong. I immediately know my mistake; I didn't check for the ingredients list before. I definitely smell alcohol and viola... alcohol is actually one of the ingredients and listed in the middle. Close to the front.

Ingredients for this 150 ml of toner are;  Water, Dipropylene glycol, Niacinamide, PEG-32, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Disodium EDTA, PEG/PPG-17/6 copolymer, Allantoin, Panthenol, Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus limon, Caprylyl Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Madecassoside1,2-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin

I try to endure the smell at first, however my nose is so sensitive with smells so I cannot take it. I can only apply this twice and I stop and decided to sell this, if somebody want to since Nacific is actually quite famous here in Indonesia.  

🔎 Performa
I cannot say much, because I don't use it more than two times. The smell puts me off. It doesn't break me out however, I don't think I will be able to validate the claims from this toner.

I know my review for this is mostly my disappointment because I actually expect a lot from this brand, they have amazing essence, serum, and toner that I love. I've pretty much like everything they produced before this smelly toner went on sale. But I have to be clear again here that I am super sensitive with smell when it comes to skincare. So excuse me for being too picky.

The good thing about this toner probably it didn't cause any breakout for me. 

What I like
👌 Doesn't break me out
👌 Affordable

What I don't like
💔 Smell
💔 Hard to find

Will I repurchase?
Nope 👎

Will I recommend this?
Maybe? If your nose is not as sensitive as mine.

I hope you enjoy my short review slash rambling, but please note again that skincare is based on your preference. If you're actually okay with strong fragrance products, then give this a try. The price won't hurt you.

By the way, I have asked the brand itself on IG direct message about the originality of this product because I am afraid I got a fake one. They're super helpful and handling my request really well, and they've confirmed that my toner is not fake. They also explained that this toner is indeed have a fragrance and they try their best to eliminate the chemical odor; they even suggested me to stop using if I can't handle the smell at all. That's so nice and helpful of them.

See you on my next post~

  1. I was wondering if this toner is even neccessary? with the phyto niacin serum? if not does it aid in brightening at all?

    1. I don't think this is necessary and I gave up using this because it smells so bad, so I don't know if it adds brightening effect to our skin. However I use their Phyto Niacin essence, and it work really well, I don't need this one to use that essence. Hope this helps :)

  2. may I know what's your skin type? Is this product okay for all skin type?

    1. Mine is oily, skin problem: pores. I think this is for all skin type because it doesn't say specifically which skin type suits this product best.
