My Experience:
    With lot of hopes, I've started using Acwell licorice toner. Checking my skin every other day being brightened or not. But even after a month of consistent usage, I didn't find any thing, literally. 
Firstly, it is due to my personal wanting of toners be like spritzing/mist type of toners. Taking a toner on cotton pad/ palms and apply on face is a big thing to me. but mostly you people don't find a issue as such. 

    The consistency is another thing, little bit slippery like I think dry/ acne-prone skin people mostly enjoy this toner. which meant for moisturizing than watery consistency. This toner can also gentle cleanse your face as we can see the dirt coming up on the cotton pad.

With all that being said, it is a good moisturizing and cleansing toner which balancing the skin. but it's all my personal preference as I always want spritzing and watery toner.

I should not say they are as my cons.

My Rating: 3.8/5
