I initally did not like this product because it was too strong for my skin. But I finally figure out the right dilution. I added some cucumber, water, and moisturizer so that it is much milder. I use it once in a while in conjunct to aspirin mask. It nicely exfoliates the outer layer of skin leaving baby soft skin to the touch. I have a hard time with the vinegar smell. But other than that, it is a fairly good product reasonably priced, and natural for the skin. This bottle lasts forever. I still have it in my cabinet and it has been over a year!

I only used ACV & Green Tea for a few days (once a day), so I didn't want to affect the rating because I'm confident that if I had kept using it, my skin would have benefited. I found my skin was really dry & it started breaking out. I know I could have just used less often & if I had continued, my skin would have adjusted. I stopped simply because I could not handle the smell! I switched to using Milk of Magnesia as a face primer and am so so incredibly happy with it. PLus there is no smell!

I havent tried this as a toner on my face.... i don't have oily or acne prone skin (altho but i've noticed it has helped w/melasma spots so i may try it on a brown spot i've got & will update)... BUT.... for your scalp... this has been AMAZING so far. I've suffered w/sporatic dandruff for YEARS... when the weather changes (summer to autumn, autumn to winter especially) my scalp gets p!ssed. It's usually only at the back of my head... but it's frustrating, and uncomfortable and embarrassing... so I've tried... jojoba oil.... and ehhh... didnt really do anything for me. i'd say it was soothing, but didn't really alleviate anything for me. i've tried straight up tea tree & find that more helpful than the jojoba... but not enough to rave about it (and my husband can't seem to STAND that smell at all)... another product i've tried... the Alterna Hemp Scalp Solution Tonic i thought was AMAZING, but it's discontinued SOOO..... Apple Cider Vinegar... i purchased the Organic Trader Joe's brand... and placed it in a little spray bottle (travel hairspray bottle size). At nite, I spray the affected areas... till it's well covered or saturated... (the scalp not so much the hair) i twist my hair up... and sleep w/it on. I sometimes i'll wrap a towel around my head till the smell dissipates a bit... and use the towel to protect my pillow because the smell is STRONG (but it does dissipate)... and it stings if you happen to have scratched prior to application... but i've noticed a significant improvement in my scalp... that has lasted upwards of a week.... in fact maybe longer now that i think about it. I shower it out in the morning using my normal shampoo (Jingles Tea Tree Rejuventating shampoo that i find happens to also help w/the scalp situation much better than any other tea tree or dandruff shampoo i've ever tried)... a conditioner (this will vary on my mood) and so far i'm REALLY pleased. I don't feel the scaliness that i'm used to feeling when it's aggravated (i used it last nite) I don't see any flakes flying either... so if all i have to do is this once a week... i'm really pretty HAPPY. Hope this helps anyone else suffering!I will update regarding the brown spot (i'm pregnant and can't use ANYTHING really) so we'll see.... UPDATE: The treatment helped the first few times... however the SMELL just couldnt be tolerated after awhile, and neither could the stinging.. I found myself just as irritated and no closer to cleared up after the first successful applications. I much prefer neem oil & ecco bella exfoliant (i've posted reviews of both)

I've only used this for a few days, and I'm already in love!!!! I use 1:1 ratio (ACV in the generic Target brand) with green tea. I have huge pores on my nose and surrounding areas. After the 2nd use they IMMEDIATELY disappeared!!! I wish I took before and after pictures!!I did do a little bit of research before making this potion. I must say my concern was how long will the mixture keep. Basically if you mix ACV with water...it can keep forever (literally). But if you mix it with green tea or any type of oils, that you should only keep it for a week while being refridgerated. This is because green tea doesn't keep very long. (Ever had just a regular cup of hot tea, and come back a couple of days later...not a pretty picture. I doubt you would want to rub it on your face either!!) I found out that the people who said they broke out more when they started using ACV, and then cleared up was because of the pH level of your skin. Think of this way....you skin is balancing out, so all the bad stuff comes to the surface, and from there you are all good to go.Also, I'm sure many of the people who use this product have very very oily skin like myself. If you haven't read already... Check out the "Milk of Magnesia" review for solving that treaded shiny greasy face!! I wash my face, use the ACV toner, follow by Biore Shine-Free moisturizer, and then MoM before the make-up!! It all works so many wonders!!! THANKS MUA!!!!!!!!!!UPDATE: 3/4/08 I have stopped using this product, the smell got to me after awhile. It's still a great product. I have switched to Aspirin Toner since January, and will never try anything again!! (Read the Reviews)

I love this product. I had horribly congested skin and it seemed like nothing would help. My pores were so badly plugged up; the texture of my skin was like sandpaper. I read reviews and decided to give this a try even though I had a high chance of purging. Well, I purged and I purged for 2 months but I continued using Bragg's acv. Most people only experience a week or two of purging which definitely made me want to stop using the acv when I was still purging after week three. I continued using this because my skin was so bad before, I thought more acne now would be worth the smooth skin later. Boy am I glad I stuck with it! I like to mix the ACV with concentrated amounts of Green tea, chamomile tea, and numerous essential oils. Here's a website where you can read about essential oils and tailor a toner that's perfect for your skin. http://www.standinghorse.com/soothingessentials/I got this site off of Carekate's notepad which also has tons of useful info on DIY skin products.Enjoy and good luck!

I did some test run on a big cyst over the weekend, I put on the ACV neat on top of the cyst w/ a piece of cotton few times a day for 3 days. It burned my skin on top of the cyst but the cyst is completely flat now. The dead skin start to peel off and the skin is slightly pinkish, looks smooth and nice under the burned skin. It's still peeling so I won't see the end result in a day or two. But I think it's definitely working for me. :) I call this poor man's chemical peel.

I had a perfectly fine skin with occassional pimples, I heard about ACV and tried it as a toner and also drank it with honey and water. Now my skin is so messed up, I broke out into millions of acne on my face. It's been couple of months and I'm still trying to get my skin back. My skin looks horrible. Do not use this product on your face.

TO HELP WITH AN ITCHY SCALP.....ACV rinses. I diluted it at least 50/50 and rinse after shampooing and leave in for a couple of minutes. I was doing it every shampoo and now I only do it once or twice monthly. The ACV worked better than Nizoral shampoo. This rinse also clarifies and leaves my hair shiny. But most importantly is my scalp doesn't itch.I tried this as a facial toner and could not get use to the smell. So I can't say how it really works as a toner. I use a nice smelling conditioner so I think it covers up the smell when used on my hair. Oh very important to look for organic apple cider vinegar with "mother" or unfiltered. I did not buy Braggs but another similar organic brand.

I've used this this product once and haven't seen anything yet but I have a few questions before I continue with the product. I am kind of new to the skin remedy deal and I was wondering if anyone had suggestions of how to incorporate ACV into my daily regimen. I have skin that gets very oily and is acne prone. I usually wash with olive oil, use witch hazel to tone with a cotton ball, use some tea tree spotted on blemishes and then put one drop jojoba on my entire face diluted with about two drops of water. Would I use the ACV instead of the witch hazel? or the ACV before the witch hazel?? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.thanks!

I've only used this twice, but i just wanted to point out a few things here. I'm of dark complexion, and have noticed some recommendation for adding citrus essential oils to this toner. This may actually be beneficial for light skin tones, but for dark skins, which is more susceptible to hyperpigmentation, citrus oils can be a bad thing (Skin Type Solutions book). So ladies, be careful. Also, for those of you trying to avoid "harsh" chemicals, this is an acid, albeit mild, but an acid none the less. So please don't represent it as some kind of mild alternative to alcohol and other "harsh" chemicals. Acids can burn the skin, and if you have sensitive skin in anyway, you should start off as dilute as possible, and work your way up, as with any other acidic product. And if you are tolerant of 10% or more AHA and BHA products, then chances are you'll be tolerant of a 1:1 or maybe neat ACV toner. Bottom line, just because it's natural, doesn't mean it's not harsh. Alcohol is every bit as natural as this is, so take that into consideration. As a chemist, i see people make these assumptions all the time, and they are just not accurate. Also, some possible additions to Carekate's formula, for moisturization: glycerin and aloe vera gel (pure), for soothing: chamomile (use tea bags). Just my 2 cents. Will update this review in about a month. UPDATE: So it's been about 2 weeks, and i just wanted to inform on developments. I had to rethink my initial formulation, due to tiny little bumps that were developing. They went away VERY quickly once i gave my skin a break. I also seem to develop little burns. I attribute these side effects to my overzealous use of the Vitamin C. Vit C is of course an acid as well, and i think i put too much in my initial concoction. So i began again about a week ago with a 2:1 (water/vinegar) mixture, with about 3/4-1 tspn Vit C. Some glycerin and some Vit E. Also added essential oils for scent. So far i cannot REALLY attest to any dramatic imrpovements. Though with my first concoction i saw the erumtion of several black and white heads almost immediately. I'll contimue to use, and update in a few weeks.
