After years of attacking my face with maximum strength Stridex pads (which, for the record, I still love for breakouts) and realizing that harsh ingredients that come in concentrate weren’t the path to happy skin, I never thought a serum-soaked round would ever approach my face again — that is, until I had the chance to test Tula’s new drop. In many ways, it’s the 2.0 (3.0?) of acne toner pad – for starters, it’s made from a biodegradable fiber. It has salicylic acid as an active ingredient (like some of its tougher competitors), but didn’t make my skin dry or irritated – thanks in large part to ingredients like skin-soothing willowherb and l pomegranate water, plus an exclusive prebiotic and probiotic complex to leave your dermis balanced, not angry.
The brand was founded by New York-based gastroenterologist Dr. Roshini Raj, MD, who has studied probiotics for 20 years and discovered an early link between healthy flora and a glowing complexion. In 2014, Tula was born, with the goal of using its medical expertise to create uplifting and uplifting beauty products rooted in skin health.
