Ovale Anti Acne Facial Lotion Review

The first time I saw the Ovale Anti Acne Facial Lotion was on a review by one of my favorite Filipina beauty bloggers KikaySikat AKA The Macho Mom.

Key ingredients she listed were all very appealing to me. Her post was so timely because my skin broke out a ton from a salmon oil cream. It’s not the cream’s fault, it’s just that my skin is really sensitive and I should’ve taken more caution.

It’s very reminiscent of Eskinol but the packaging’s quality is better.

Although branded as a facial lotion, I still consider it as a toner.

The very reason is because it has a huge amount of alcohol and other deep-cleansing ingredients.

A lotion’s job is to hydrate but the Ovale Anti Acne variant exfoliates and cleanses.

My Experience

I have a love-hate relationship with it.

Scent is so appealing to me (I’ve always loved fresh citrusy scents).

Price point is super friendly; retails at only 69 PHP per 100ml.

Packaging is not hard on the eyes and dispensing the product is convenient with the absence of frills.

Ingredients are very nourishing and friendly with the exception of the alcohol’s and fragrance’s potency which can cripple someone’s sensitive skin.

Stinging WILL be felt on active pimples.

My skin is dominantly dry but for some reason, when I use this product before sleeping, I wake up with a very greasy face the next day which doesn’t normally happen.

I think that the cleansing power came with stripping my skin of natural oils urging my glands to produce more sebum than usual.


Clear dirt and remove makeup. Enriched with Aloe Vera Extract, Vitamin A & E to maintain your skin smooth and soft.”

True to its claim and I should’ve read between the lines better. This is like one of those products that cites “WHITE” in bold but doesn’t necessarily mean it can whiten skin.

It will deeply cleanse your face and leave you with zero gunk from makeup which is evident from the photo below.

All traces will be gone and the mystery will be left unsolved even by the most popular detective Kogouri Mori with the help of Conan, Sherlock Holmes, and Jessica Fletcher.

How to use Ovale Anti Acne Facial Lotion

Apply it to a cotton pad and gently wipe the face and neck until thoroughly clean.

Use regularly every day.

Do not apply on irritated or burnt skin. This product contains AHA which can increase skin’s sensitivity to direct sunlight.

Use sun protection, clothing that protect from direct sunlight and limit the sun exposure during and a week after using this product.

Key Ingredients

Tea Tree Leaf Oil, Salicylic Acid, Lime Oil, Vitamin E, Retinyl Palmitate, Aloe Vera and Glyceryl Laurate.

Final Words

It’s my own fault as to why the Ovale Anti Acne Facial Lotion worsened my acne breakouts. It clearly says on the back to not use it on irritated skin.

The only thing that concerns me is as to why they labeled it Anti Acne if it’s not meant for people who already have problematic skin.

Ding ding ding! Yes Amanda, it’s to increase sales!

I highly recommend the Ovale Anti Acne Facial Lotion for people who don’t suffer from skin issues. Know your skin type for free.


  • Great product to maintain an already flawless skin and protect it from acne.
  • Utilize as a cheaper alternative to more expensive makeup removers.
  • Picks up both blackheads and whiteheads and exfoliates with Alpha Hydroxy Acids.
  • Helps in skin whitening.


  • Not something to reach for if your face already looks like a planet.
  • Avoid if you have sensitive and acne-prone skin at all costs.

I should’ve stuck to my Pimple Remedies guide but sometimes, as a Beauty Blogger, you have to take risks.
