Review: I Tried 3 Products from Alluskin for 1 month
I’ve always loved discovering new skincare brands in Malaysia. Nowadays, the quality is different, and it’s on par with the international level. I can guarantee you that by introducing you to Alluskin.
Alluskin was founded in 2019 by a former medical doctor, Dr Nurul A’in binti Sa’ari. The brand first started with Alluskin Purifying Cleanser (also known as APC), a glycolic acid cleanser that works, setting a benchmark of how AHA cleanser should be in the market. So far, more than 50,000 units of cleansers have sold online, and it’s still counting!
They have given birth to three more products: Alluskin Hydrating Toner, Lightbulb Serum, and Barrier Cream. But, in this blog post, I’m going to review only the cleanser, toner and serum. Thank you, Najla, for sending this over in 2020! Now, let’s start~

Alluskin Purifying Cleanser
The APC contains 5% Glycolic Acid, which is good for hyperpigmentation and makes your pores look smaller. It also contains Witch Hazel and Allantoin, which combine to perfect acne-prone and problematic skin. This cleanser is free from alcohol, fragrance and essential oil.
It’s the second time that I have experienced less foam cleanser. Last time it was with ORYN Skincare which makes me use to it already. It doesn’t have any prominent fragrance, which I’m okay with as long it brings results to my skin. Since the cleanser aims to combat acne, tiny bumps, dullness and rough skin texture, I can feel that my skin is smoother than before. I still haven’t seen that it help me to combat dullness yet, but it does make my skin feel plumpy after using it.
Alluskin Hydrating Toner
Alluskin Hydrating Toner (also known as AHT) is a toner without alcohol that aims to give an immediate sensation of freshness, deep hydration while balancing oil production. It will also soothe your irritated skin and minimise pore appearances. The toner contains Allantoin, Castor Oil, Witch Hazel and Rosa Damascena that can fight bacteria that cause acne, and it’s alcohol-free.
This 30ml toner is not enough for one month. This bottle only lasts me around two weeks with me using twice a day, either by spray directly onto the face or on a cotton pad to wipe all the dirt. Again, it doesn’t have fragrance, but I don’t mind because it controls my sebum production, especially for me, on the nose and chin area.
Alluskin Lightbulb Serum
Alluskin Lightbulb Serum (also known as ALS) is a lightweight gel serum that contains Arbutin, Vitamin C, Glutathione and Rosemary. Tons of powerhouse ingredients inside this bottle will help lighten dark spots, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, and calm irritated skin. This serum is free from alcohol, fragrance and essential oil.
ALS absorb into your skin quickly and doesn’t feel sticky even though it contains Vitamin C. I love this because it helps clear out the acne and balance the skin’s natural oil production. I noticed my skin produced less sebaceous filament, which always collected on the typical nose and chin area. But, I still need to clean it weekly, so this serum, in a way, help me to control it.
I can guarantee you this is not just hype. This skincare brand surprisingly works well on my skin. But, if you are a person who loves fragrance, you might not use to this because it does not have scents. Again, as long the products work, I don’t mind about that tiny things. My skin produced tons of sebum, and when I see the before and after photos, I would like to repurchase without a doubt. If you want to try them, you can get your hand on the all-in-one trial kit consisting of all of their products.
