ETUDE HOUSE: AC Clinic Review

Hi! So after my long break, I planned to review the products from the AC Clinic line that I am currently using, the AC Clinic Foam Cleanser, AC Clinic Clay Pack and the AC Clinic Gel Lotion.

I'm going to give a small review of them individually but more of as a whole since I used them simultaneously so I really can't say which did what. So make sure to read until the end to know what happened!

The AC Clinic Line is:

Non-Comedogenic and Dermatologist Tested
'Non-Comedogenic' means it will not produce nor aggravate acne. AC Clinic line is formulated without acne inducing ingredients to promote clear skin.

AC Clinic Foam Cleanser Review

Formulated with Salicylic Acid, Triclosan and Sandalwood Oil. Acne Foam Cleanser removes acne causing germs to keep your skin clean all day. Ideal for use as a makeup removal cleanser.

[Active Ingredients] Triclosan and Sandalwood Oil
[Vol] 150ml

I love the scent of this cleansing foam, it smells so clean and refreshing. Everytime I use this on my face, it really feels like my face is really clean but it doesn't feel dry at all. You'll only need a little amount of it because it foams up really well. It made my face really smooth just from a few weeks of using it. It works really good for redness and prevention of pimples and blackheads.

AC Clinic Gel Lotion Review

Formulated with Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract, AC Clinic Gel Lotion clarifies and soothes troubled skin while maintaining oil/moisture balance without aggravation.

[Active Ingredients] Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract
[Vol] 150 ml

I didn't really know if I was gonna like this at first because I thought that it would just make my face oilier and produce more of those tiny bumps on the sides of my face (the dermatologist that I used to go to told me that they were blackheads and I had them removed once every two weeks). But, I still tried because I really wanted to find a cure.

This has a thin consistency and the formula is on the watery side so it dries on my face really quickly, it's like you didn't apply anything at all so this one is really made for people with acne-prone skin. This one has a stronger scent to it, and I'm thinking that it's the Hinoki Cypress extract. My skin feels really clean whenever I use it. I love this Gel Lotion so much! It's so effective!

AC Clinic Clay Pack Review

Formulated with natural Mud Clay, Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract, AC Clinic Clay Pack cleanses and nourishes surface with an oil-free formula by removing facial oil and residues to prevent onset of acne.

[Active Ingredients] Salicylic Acid and Hinoki Cypress extract
[Vol] 100ml

So this is a clay pack and I use this every night. This one has the mildest scent among the three products. I leave it on for 5 minutes and my skin will feel really smooth and cleansed after rinsing, it's also great for reducing facial redness. My skin just feels soothed after using this. It's not included in the application sequence of the AC Clinic but it's included in mine. One thing I don't like about this is the price. It's almost P500 for 100ml, what the hell!?

AC Clinic Review

I don't have any pictures of my skin to show you guys but I guarantee you that AC Clinic really made my skin a lot better

I used to have a lot of blackheads on the sides of my face and I hate it when it casts a shadow whenever light hits on it. I hate feeling it whenever I wash my face and also when I apply makeup. So, yeah I really hated my face back then, even after the results of the Red Spot Balm because the texture of my face was like really rough. But now, my skin feels so SMOOTH.

I haven't gotten a single pimple or a black head since I started using the AC Clinic line. I used to have a pimple whenever it's my time of the month but now, I don't and I'm just so happy!

What else? Well, I never told anyone that I started using these products, not even my parents. The first one who noticed it was a friend, she told me that my face has really improved. My dad also told me that my face was getting clearer. My mom asked me what product was I using. More people noticed it but I'm not gonna tell the stories anymore, lol.

The best part of it was that I don't have a reason to go to the derma anymore.


Her name is Rabbit, lol. I just got her last August 29, she was roaming around the street and she kept on following people.
 Luckily, my mom's friends were the ones she was following. Nobody wanted to take her and I was surprised to see a rabbit inside the house. They took her to our place because they know that we love animals. It was love at first sight, haha. We kept her of course, see the picture? She's in my room, lol. It was too sudden and I couldn't find a name, and I thought that Rabbit was cute enough. She's very nice and SHE EATS A LOT!!!  She's so cuuute!


  1. Thanks for review! Sounds like it's a real miracle, hehe ^^ I'd like to try it but I'm not sure it's suitable for my skin which is acne-prone, but not too oily, dehydrated a little and very sensitive *sigh*

    Very cuuute rabbit *_*

  2. hey what toner do you use? my skin is acne-prone too.

  3. I've been reading some of your reviews and I kept your blog to have a look once in a while. But the reason I write to you is to congratulate you for your beautiful rabbit, I'm sorry she was abandoned before but now she is lucky to be with someone who likes animals, it's great there is people like you.

  4. @Candice, I know it's kind of weird but I don't use toner ^^ but I plan on using the AC Clnic toner though :D

    @Anna, Thanks!!! My whole family loves animals. Like, really, it's like we have a zoo in our house lol.
