[ETUDE HOUSE] AC Clinic Intense Trial Kit

A lot of ppl surely know the trouble care line AC Clinic from [ETUDE HOUSE]. I also own the Acne Foam Cleanser, Gel Lotion, Pink Powder Spot, Red Spot Balm and AC Clinic White-Trouble 2 Step Toner
Around 2 weeks ago I saw that the older products got upgraded and are now sold under the names AC Clinic Daily (Acne Foam Cleanser, Toner, Gel Lotion) and AC Clinic Intense (Pink Powder Spot, Pink Powder Water). Even though I own the full sizes already I purchased the new AC Clinic Intense Trial Kit, mainly coz of the newly published Pink Powder Water.

Description: Formulated with Salicylic Acid, AC Clinic delivers trouble care at every stage.
The Trial Kit comes in a travel-friendly, clear plastic bag and contains the following five (5) products:
AC Clinic Daily Acne Foam Cleanser (30ml)
AC Clinic Daily Toner (25ml)
AC Clinic Daily Gel Lotion (25ml)
AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Spot (5ml) + 10 Cotton Swabs
AC Clinic Intense Pink Powder Water (5ml)
All products got this strong scent you may know already from the older versions. It's probably the scent of the hinoki cypress.
Acne Foam Cleanser: The daily cleanser comes in a small green tube with a twist-off lid. The consistency is thick and creamy like most foam cleansers are.
Toner: You apply the toner with a cotton pad after cleansing your face. This one is colorless!
Gel Lotion: Same as the Toner the Gel Lotion comes in a small translucent bottle with a twist-off lid on top. You need to 'shake' the bottle to get the white, gel-like lotion out. Just massage it with your hands over your face after using the toner.
Pink Powder Spot: This product consists of a liquidity and a powdery part. The liquid has a strong scent as if there is a lot of alcohol inside. The powder has a pink color! To use the powder do not shake the bottle before usage!! Take a cotton swab and dip it in, then coat breakouts with the pink powder.
Pink Powder Water: Like the Pink Powder Spot it has powder inside which is here rather white. Shake the bottle well and apply the water with your fingers to breakouts. You can use it after make-up as well.
 I would say that the Pink Powder Spot should be used overnight and the Pink Powder Water at daytime.
Till now I like the Trial Kit. It's nice for travelling or if you just wanna try out the products before buying a full size. This Special Trial Kit For Trouble Care shall last for 4 weeks!
Price: around 13,- €/ US$16
Bought at: eBay (      

What I love:  
The small travel-friendly size. Good for testing the products, too.

What I don’t like:  
There is nothing I don't like yet! 

Will I buy this again? If I see that it really works...yes! Got some products as full size already at home, though.


  1. so lovely .. you can try the whole package without buying the full size items .. nice!

    1. Yes, that's really nice. =) Also good for travelling. ^^

    1. It might help to fight some blemishes/ breakouts but I don't think it will really cure from acne. I tried sooo many products for oily and trouble skin and nothing really helped me. So, if it's a hormonal problem it won't help to use products from 'outside'.
      But it also always depends on ppl's skin. You could try the kit out anyway. =)

  3. I've been a little curious about getting this lately. :0 I didn't even realize there was a trial version. Now I want to check it out...~

    I'm a new follower! ^_^ x

    1. Yeah, I found the Trial Kit on eBay. Didn't know before that it exist as well. ^^
      Thanks for following! =)

  4. I purchased the pink powder water but don't know what is the application sequence of I use it during daytime. Can you please help me? Can I use this before applying make-up?

    1. The Pink Powder Water can be used at night and/ or daytime. Apply it with your fingers to breakouts or oily areas.
      Yes, you can use the water after applying make-up as well. =)

  5. I owned this one too.. Great that it works for you. It didn't work in me

  6. Hi I just bought this trial kit but I'm not very sure how to use the pink powder spot & the pink powder water. Can you teach me how to do it correctly?

    1. Hi! ^^
      Sure, I will hel you:

      Pink Powder Spot: Take the included cotton swab and dip it into the pink powder (do nat shake the bottle before use).
      Then apply it on trouble spots/ pimples. I use it only in the evening and wash it off the next morning. ;)

      Pink Powder Water: Shake the bottle before usage and then apply the white water with ur finger on trouble spots and oily areas. Massage it a bit in!
      This powder water can be used during daytime and also under ur make-up.

  7. excuse me at night time do we need to use gel lotion after toner or not ? and what about pink powder spot?
