When we talk about vegan and cruelty-free skincare brands in India, Plum is a name that comes to most of our minds, and the Plum Green Tea range of skincare is particularly raved about by those with oily and acne-prone skin. I have already reviewed the Plum Green Tea Pore Cleansing Face Wash and the Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask on the blog, and today I will be talking about the Plum Green Tea Alcohol-free Toner and the Plum Green Tea Renewed Clarity Gel. Read on to find out how these products fared for my combination to oily, acne-prone skin.
Plum Green Tea Alcohol-free Toner | Review
The Plum Green Tea Alcohol-free Toner contains green tea extracts to curb acne and tighten the pores and glycolic acid to gently remove dead skin. This toner feels quite gentle on the skin and does not cause any burning or tingling sensation. You can feel your pores tighten after using this product but it does not dry the skin out since it contains glycerin and does not contain any alcohol. The pH of this toner is between 6 and 7, so it does not damage the acid mantle of the skin, and with regular usage, you will notice that it shrinks any existing acne and prevents breakouts too.
Priced at INR 390 for a 200ml bottle, this toner is quite affordable and will last you a long time. I also like the sturdy and leakproof bottle that this toner comes in. When used in combination with the Plum Green Tea Face Wash and the Renewed Clarity Night Gel, this product can help restore the glow of your oily skin while keeping it hydrated and breakout-free.

Plum Green Tea Renewed Clarity Night Gel | Review
The Plum Green Tea Renewed Clarity Night Gel is a light-weight gel-based moisturiser that is specially formulated for oily and acne-prone skin. It contains green tea to prevent acne with its anti-bacterial properties, willow and licorice to clear up the skin, and argan oil to add a layer of hydration. This gel can be used on its own as a standalone moisturiser by those with extremely oily skin or you can layer it with a hydrating serum or oil if you have combination skin. The formula helps to calm down any angry breakouts and shrinks any active acne on my face within a couple of days of use.
If you are someone who prefers gel-based moisturisers over oils and creams and have acne-prone skin then this product will be perfect for you. It is priced at INR 575 for a decently sized 50ml jar and is usually available at a discounted price on Amazon, Nykaa and Plum’s website. Click here to buy.
Overall, I really love the Plum Green Tea Alcohol-free Toner and Renewed Clarity Night Gel as much as the other products from the range. The only con of this range of products is that each product contains fragrance, which may not suit those with sensitive skin, but my skin does not react adversely to it and I personally enjoy the sweet herbal scent. If you are looking for an affordable yet effective CTM routine for oily skin then the Plum Green Tea Range will not fail you!
