Mostly the reviews that I write are mostly associated with the products that I use to help combat my acne, or my hormonal cystic acne I should say. I am now 26 years old and have used many products to help clear my skin. My last visit to my dermatologist which was in April, she told me that I either need to get on accutane or birth control. I have acne mostly cystic on my jawline and cheeks. I didnt think my acne was super bad for it to be on accutane. So i opted for the BC. This really helped clear my skin up. IDK if I need a different dosage of the BC because my acne is coming out consistently. Ive been on BC for about 7months. Recently this month its been pretty bad. I was getting treatment for my acne scarring for the same reason that I felt that my acne had calmed down but it was coming back. It was getting annoying so I decided to go the natural route. I have been doing alot of DIY masks and trying to eliminate certain foods that could affect my acne, Long sory short I read a lot of positive reviews on ACV. I bought the Braggs formula and I am so glad I did. I have been using this for less than a week and I already see a difference in my skin. The texture of my skin is very soft and the cystic pimples that I had all came to a head which never happens bc whoever sufferes from cystic acne knows that cysts on face last forever!!! I use ACV twice a day. I filled up the solution with half water and half ACV and it has worked well for me. Im not super worried about the hypergimentation bc that will eventually fade, I was more worried about the breakout to last forever. I currently do not have active acne and last week I had like 15 pimples on my cheeks and jawline. I still am using the BC and I still use tazorac every other day or as needed. I also wash my face with Dove soap. Im trying to keep my regime as basic as possible. This really helps with blackheads bc I have absolutely none and I used to have a bit but they have simply vanished. Also in the morning i drink about a cup of water and put a tablespoon of vinegar. I recommend taking that before you brush your teeth bc the taste is awful! Hope this helps. I am giving it a 4 bc I want to wait at least a month before giving it a 5. I would give this a shot

Used it for months, did absolutely nothing. Diluted it with water and used as a toner to get rid and prevent and spots and even out my skin tone. Nothing changed with my skin.

Im so disappointed with this. After reading so many positive reviews about it, I bought it online and I used it as a toner. It made my acne worse. I have dark spots on my face that I wanted to get rid, but instead after using it for a week, I developed small bumps on my face and my pimples did not disappear at all. Unfortunately this did not go well with my sensitive oily skin. I stopped using it after a week sadly and I will not be trying it again.

I have lots of small bumps on my forehead and a few breakouts here and there. I really wanted to get rid of them so I resulted to ACV despite the mixed reviews. I diluted it with water (70% water & 30% ACV), applied it on a cotton pad, and toned my face with it every night before moisturizer. After only 5 days I saw a big difference! My bumps were reduced and my breakouts were practically gone!! I will continue using this every night as I love the results it gives. * If you have sensitive skin, I would dilute the ACV even more, and slowly build up the ratios as your skin gets adjusted to it! The ACV I've been using is not organic, and I've seen results nevertheless! Overall, I would truly recommend this for bumps and acne (or even acne scarring/dark spots!)

Using this as a toner for my hormonal acne. Works extremely well to get rid of acne, keep it away, and normalize my oily skin. I have tried various dilutions of this but it was hit or miss; sometimes my skin would look great, sometimes the acne would come back. Finally brokedown and bought a digital ph indicator on Amazon. Found out the effective ph for me is 4.0 . So I mix Bragg's with tap water (because the distilled water has too low of a ph to move the needle on where the toner ph should be). Now my toner works effectively every time and I use less of Bragg's so I save money. Win/win.

Disclaimer: I don't use Bragg's brand of ACV, but I couldn't find the omega nutrition brand that I use.I was skeptical about using (diluted) ACV as a toner. The smell especially turned me away from it. However, after using my homemade ACV toner for about a week and a half, I am very satisfied with the results.My mix: 1 part ACV + 2 parts cucumber infused water. (I use regular water too, but have just recently started using the cucumber water for moisture perhaps?)I store mine in a plastic container and put it in the fridge, not because it needs to be refrigerated but because I like the cooling sensation when applied to my face. The biggest benefits I've seen from using ACV topically as a toner: 1. my skin tone is more even now than ever. I suspect that I have rosacea (especially on my cheeks) and ACV has definitely helped even out the redness2. my skin appears more glowing and healthy (i'm only 19, but my skin has looked dull and not as youthful as it did when I was younger) 3. I have very enlarged pores on my cheeks, but it seems that the ACV has minimized the appearance although I think this may have more to do with the fact that it has evened out the redness on my cheeks, thereby drawing less attention to the pores. Either way, my pores look smaller to me4. after over washing my skin for so many years, my skin is finally balanced (pH wise) and doesn't get nearly as oily (if at all) as it used to. I used to blot my face 2-3 times a day, now I only do once or not at all! I do have mild acne and the ACV toner hasn't completely banished my breakouts like many people here have said, but I think it does help dry out pimples and possibly help with preventing new ones. I will definitely keep using this especially because its one of the cheapest things I've used on my face and definitely one of the most effective topical products.As for the smell, you get used to it and after it sits on your face for about 15 minutes the stench completely dissipates. I hardly mind the smell at all after about a week of usage.I will continue using this and hope for more and more positive results!

LOVE...LOVE...LOVE. I dilute this 1/2 Braggs ACV and 1/2 Witch Hazel. Works like a DREAM!! I have oily skin (mainly t-zone) and blackheads with the monthly breakout. This mixture keeps my skin clean, clear and break out free!! It has help to decrease oil production without drying me out, and tighten my large pores like nothing else. And, CHEAP to boot. Been using this morning and night for 6 months and have seen a noticeable difference. Will keep using forever :)

This is day 4 of using ACV as a toner. I'm not using this brand, I use the supermarket brand. Firstly, I made the concentration of 4 parts water and 1 ACV ratio. I tolerated well, and day 3 I amped it up slightly. I didn't measure it exactly, as I just topped my old/current batch off with more ACV. I suffer from terrible clogged pores but not all of them will turn into pimple, they're just very bumpy. During the ACV trial, I haven't worn any makeup, just cleansing and using an organic moisturiser. I used exfoliation mask and extracted my comedones 1- 1.5 weeks prior to the ACV trial. So it has been a while. I haven't noticed the exfoliating effect of the ACV. The clogged pores became more noticeable (maybe purging?). So yesterday, I decided to just extract all my comedones (using blackhead extractor). It was so gross and so many of them. It's literally every pore was filled with gunks. So now my face feels clean and much less bumpy. I will still keep using ACV to see if it helps it stay clear. But I don't think it will exfoliate and get rid of the pre-existing clogged pores. That's what manual extraction is for…UPDATE 13/10/2015: My clogged pores reduce quite a bit after consistently using ACV as a toner. When I did extraction today, it wasn't a lot compared to my last extraction (which I believed was a purging period when using ACV). I will update againUpdate 19/10/2015: I still do have some clogged pores but they're reduced. It's my time of the time where I usually get pimples. Yes I got a huge one (cystic) a few days ago, ACV won't get rid of the pimple itself, but it will speed up the process of it coming to a head. It did it in a day or two and soon enough I was able to pop it, such a huge relief! Then I put ACV on the area, yes it stung, but day 3 it's gone. YAY! Be careful if you just did a physical exfoliation, and decide to use ACV toner afterwards, it will sting even if you just dab it. I suggest to dilute your usual concentration with a little bit more water, or just skip the ACV for the day.Update 26/10/2015: My face has improved heaps! Clogged pores are greatly reduced, and no I have not used chemical exfoliator or exfoliating mask at all. So no BHA, AHA, or peeling mask. It controls my oil very well. A bit too well sometimes but nothing that a moisturiser can fix when that happens. I usually skip moisturiser after using this as a toner as I don't want to upset my pH balance. I think ACV restores my pH and my skin functions properly as a protective barrier. Usually my breakout is crazy when it's the time of the month. I found that it did help a lot but not completely eliminate it.

What can I say about Bragg's and ACV? I've been using it since the 70's and have always had a bottle in the pantry or under the counter since. Dr. Bragg and his daughter (Patricia I believe) also had a little book out all about ACV which I've owned since the 70's (recently lent it to a young co-worker who suffers from RA and she left the company before returning the book - sniff). The book is kind of corny but is loaded with information and uses for ACV. Dr. Bragg asserts (and I believe this too) that all dis-ease is caused by inflamed tissue, something that scientists and doctors understand but instead of looking at the cause they go for symptom treatment. What I see is traditional doctors will prescribe all types of anti inflammatory drugs and creams, with all the concerning side-effects we all know about. They should say, go get an ACV massage, and begin putting a few drops in your water! ACV works at breaking down the acid crystals in your body which occur naturally when the body is battling pollutants, bad food, chemicals, irritants, etc and the naturally occurring breaking down and building up our cells do daily. If things slow down (bad diet, illness, lack of fresh air and exercise) and you don't get those acid crystals flushed out, they can lead to inflammation of the tissue and then eventually your disease of choice appears. The book has a ACV acid crystal 'flush' that you can do which people with RA, and other complaints have had amazing benefits from. He actually includes information on how you can check your urine for evidence before and after of the presence of acid crystals. And although I'm an experimenter and quazi-mad scientist I never tried that, as the thought of collecting my urine in a jar (as you need to for the 'test') was not appealing! I'll just take his word for it!I used ACV the following ways:A few drops in my water bottle before a hike. A FEW DROPS! One time I put too much in and was out hiking, really needed a good slake of water and instead got what tasted like a mouth full of vinegar and it was not nice. Never again. Respect the potency.Added to just about everything I eat. Fresh salads, steamed veggies, casseroles, stews, gravies, fries, roasted veggies, dressings. Yum. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.As a toner 1 part ACV/4 parts distilled water. Sometimes add a drop or two of essential oil, like rose absolute, neroli, tuberose, lavender. I take a 'nip' of ACV, straight, before a workout or when my muscles are sore or twangy. Also strengthens the heart muscle. Lots of potassium! Also helps with stress.A 1/2 capful in one of my many glasses of water a day.I used to do a facial steam using Swiss Criss in the water for a soft herbal steam. Then I'd put a couple of tsp ACV in a bowl and fill it with about 1/2 C very warm water. I would then put a damp facecloth into the mixture, ring it out just so it's not dripping, and lay down and lay it on my face and relax - oh when you first breath in the warmed vinegar it can make you cough! So tart! Then after a minute or so, I use the cloth in circular motions over my skin starting at my neck and moving up. Then rinse with warm water and you can't believe how baby bottom smooth your skin is.I've not found the Swiss Criss around for ages (it's also by Braggs), nor the real Bragg's AVC around my area. I don't have really great health food stores close by like I used to, but the local grocery store carries Spectrum which is made a few communities away and is organic unpasturized unfiltered, with the mother, in glass, so I'm happy with that. Plus it's local and this province is famous for its apples. However, if I ever see Bragg's I still buy it - I feel a connection to it, like an old friend.Dilute 1 part acv/4 parts water and massage onto sore achy muscles.I've used it in my hair too but stopped for some reason. May start that again.Recently I had a series of tests on my heart (24 hour monitor, stress test, ultrasound - that was cool to hear your own heartbeat through a speaker!)...anyway after all was said and done, the cardiologist told me I was going to live to 150. I guess that means at least my heart won't be the culprit! And this after I've been a long time smoker, used to drink a lot of alcohol and party hard, and to this day I eat whatever I feel like including ice-cream, cookies, fried foods (and I eat equally of fresh juices, veggies, fruits, nuts). I've pretty much stayed slim, flexible, and strong with soft smooth skin throughout the decades (I have my ups and downs of course, but overall...). I totally give that a nod toward being a life long ACV user.Love!

I am completely flummoxed by the absolute hysteria ACV seems to have garnered.If you're putting something anything - and I DO mean anything - acidic or alkaline on your skin you have to do some testing first ... or at the very least read up on the stuff. Isn't that just common sense? To scream in the middle of the night because of a bad reaction is just a tad over the top and I'm sorry, but - I just don't get the hysteria. (as for ACV itself, the stuff is marvelous. I drink it daily and it makes one wicked hair tonic)
