REVIEW: Nacific Pink AHA/BHA Toner and Serum | First Impressions


Nacific's latest release got me flaunting my glowy skin!

Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, AHA, BHA, and 70% Watermelon Extract, this makes my skin so fresh and moist, that it looks (and feels) healthier and tighter! If you have sensitive and dry skin, give this a try!

Nacific is a Korean skincare brand that believes in the power of nature to provide comfort and relaxation to the skin with healthy ingredients. They aim for the following:

- Clear and purely from nature, but trendy

- Simple, but reliable 

- Reasonable and effective

While I would say that this is quite a lot of expectations from a brand, I believe Nacific is able to do that through its products. They have a myriad of product lines that are developed for very specific skincare concerns. As of the moment, they have Pink AHA BHA (top right), Fresh Cica Plus Clear (top middle), Phyto Niacin Whitening (top left), Fresh Herb Origin (bottom middle), Real Floral Calendula, Glow Intensive, Real Floral Rose, Jeju Artemisia Essence, Nutrition Herb Origin, and a couple bar soaps. 

A couple of weeks ago, the Review Hunters* team reached out to me about Nacific Philippines. Turns out, I was one of lucky creators chosen to try out the latest Nacific line, Pink AHA BHA! Having had a great experience with their Fresh Herb Origin line, I said yes and here we are! 

AHA, BHA, Watermelon Extract, Pink Calamine, Hyaluronic Acid, and Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract are the main ingredients of this set. 

1. AHA

AHA means "alpha hydroxy acid", and it is a water-soluble acid that helps exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin. AHAs can help with mild hyperpigmentation like age spots, melasma, and scars. It can also help minimize pores, fine lines, and surface wrinkles, while also evening out the skin tone. 

2. BHA

BHA means "beta hydroxy acid", which is an oil-soluble acid that helps exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin. Unlike AHAs, BHAs can get deeper into the pores to remove dead skin cells and excess sebum. It is recommended for acne and sun-damaged skin concerns. 

3. Watermelon Extract

Watermelon Extract can come from either the pulp or the seed, but both have powerful antioxidant properties from its potassium, Vitamins A, C, and B, amino acids, and lycopene content. It can help restore the skin to a more vibrant, firm, and youthful glow. Watermelon extract can also help minimize the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. 

4. Pink Calamine

Pink Calamine has anti-inflammatory properties from zinc oxide, which can help relieve skin irritation, plant allergies, and infections. Its medicinal properties date back to Ebers Papyrus and ancient Ayurvedic manuscripts

5. Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a  natural humectant which means it helps keep moisture on the skin. Amazingly, it can hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water. It helps minimize skin texture like lines and wrinkles and also helps keep the skin barrier strong. Another highlight of this ingredient is that it can help lighten dark spots and pimple scars. Hyaluronic Acid is best for dry skin but can help regulate oil glands for oily skin. 

6. Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract

Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract comes from sea buckthorn which is a good source of vitamin C, B vitamins, vitamin E, lycopene, phytosterols, and numerous phenolic compounds. It has a noticeable soothing effect on the skin, It can also help signal the sebum/oil glands to reduce the production of excess sebum, helps fade acne scars, heals blemishes, gives you a smooth skin texture, skin hydration, and encourages the production of more collagen.

They sent me the toner and serum, and I will buy the cream on my own so that I can have the full experience :D

Nacific Pink AHA BHA Toner

150ml bottle, hard plastic

Contains AHA, BHA, 70% Watermelon Extract, and Pink Calamine. This toner claims to remove dead skin while still keeping the skin hydrated. I like that it has a foil seal, which assures me that this has not been tampered with. Very watery, and I'm okay with the feel on my skin. It has the same refreshing feeling as eating watermelons but on my skin if that makes sense? Overall a good product, and would purchase it once I run out. 

Retails for 1000 pesos but is usually on sale for 20% off.

Price: P800  

Nacific Pink AHA BHA Serum

50ml bottle, thick plastic with glass dropper

Contains AHA, BHA, 70% Watermelon Extract, and Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract. Has a light, citrusy scent that I didn't really expect -- I thought it will smell like watermelons. It's a translucent and viscous liquid that leaves a moisturizing film on the skin. Sinks in pretty quick, without being sticky. I like the glass-skin effect it gives my skin whenever I use it.

Retails for 1200 pesos but usually on sale for 20% off.

Price: P820

Nacific Pink AHA BHA Cream

Contains AHA, BHA, 70% Watermelon Extract, Pink Calamine, Hyaluronic Acid. Personally haven't tried the cream yet though. 

Retails for 1300 pesos but usually on sale for 20% off.

Price: P830

Nacific Pink AHA BHA Trial Set

  1. Have you tried it? I heard a lot of positive feedbacks regarding the skin care products from Korea. It would be a good deal for all Filipinos who aspire to have a soft, white skin complexion like the Koreans. :) I love the packaging too!

    1. the toner and the serum is okay, haven't tried the cream yet :)

  2. Been looking for new products to add to my skin routine. I’ve been looking to get rid of my acne scar and like reduce breakouts as well. Should try this out no?

  3. I want to try this skin care products. I read lots of good reviews about and hopefully it's effective to my skin as well

  4. I’m glad ingredients like AHA, BHA and Hyaluronic Acid can be found in these products! They look promising too! Thanks for sharing about them - i actually haven’t heard of this brand yet before. I’m sure they have a cult following in Korea haha 😀

  5. i was going to use something with hyaluronic acid pero di ko natuloy kasi nag breakouts na ako dun sa mga ibang part ng set na gamit ko from a brand. na curious ako though sa watermelon extract.

  6. The trial set looks really interesting. I wonder if avail rin sila sa Beauty MNL, cause that is where I like to get my korean products... if ever mag work to, would it be a contender for the cosrx aha bha thing?

    1. the trial set, not sure.. but the full sized ones are there, albeit always sold out. :)

  7. I did tried the Nacific toner before that I got from Althea Korea, and it was also a good toner. I'll get the full range to try as well.

  8. Badly want to try this but it is not available in my country. How sad.

  9. do you use it everyday?

  10. I love this set so much! Best set from Nacific!

  11. Can I just say that you look so gorgeous!
