What is ACSEN?
ACSEN stands for ACne + SENsitive, a special line designed for acne prone and sensitive skin. It provides customized skincare prescription from skin cleansing to cream. Acne prone and sensitive skin may worsen if not treated right, the main reason why Troiareuke developed this line of products.

This gives comfort to the skin as it cleanses without skin irritation and dryness. It is designed for acne prone and sensitive skin. This oil-free, gel type cleanser is formulated with papaya extact, portulaca extract, aloe vera juice, soapwort, and Usnea barbata; all are responsible to make cleansing soothing and moisturizing.

- Moderately apply with clean dry hands and gently scrub on the skin like massaging.
- Rinse or use disposable wipes with warm water.
This is my first time to try a gel cleanser. I’m not really comfortable with applying the cleanser directly on my skin without using water first. At first, I thought this might not be able to remove heavy makeup. But later on, after trying it for 2 weeks, the result is amazing.
I have pimples before I started using the product so this will really test how effective the product is. I tried cleansing my face using ACSEN Oil Cut Cleanser 3 times a week as recommended.
I started on a Sunday with light makeup. It feels thick when applied on the skin and seems to dry fast. So, I have to scrub my face gently and make sure that the product is evenly applied on my skin while trying not to let it dry before rinsing.
It smells very gentle and calming. My face felt squeaky clean and moisturized after washing it with warm water. Yeah, my skin feels clean and ready for my next skincare step. Yet, I’m still sceptical.
So, I tried using it to cleanse my face with heavy makeup. As soon as I applied the gel cleanser, it felt thicker, probably because of the makeup removed from my skin. I tried to add more of it just to make sure that everything will be removed. The makeup is removed because I can clearly see the water mixed with the color of my foundation.
I’m still not convinced, I used my micellar water to check if there’s any makeup residue, but there’s NONE!
This cleanser is really remarkable! ACSEN Oil Cut Cleanser can definitely take over your double cleansing routine. It’s very gentle and I did not experience redness and stimulation from the sensitive part of my face.
Let’s move on to the next product…
Healing Cocktail – Skin Complex Formula (60mL)+ Anti Trouble Formula Ampoule Green (10mL)
Troiareuke Healing Cocktail aim to address a particular problem that provides an option to mix and match as required to solve more complex and challenging problems of the skin. We all have different skin problems, so how does this Healing Cocktail do it?
Skin Complex Formula (60mL)
This toner is an anti-aging ampoule booster that comes with anti-oxidant pycnogenol rich content, excellent at relieving oxidative stress and reducing free radicals upon the skin. It can also be used as a hydrating spray mist to help skin retain its moisture.
Skin Complex Formula is formulated with pine bark and Salicornia herbacea extracts with antioxidants that protect against sun damage. It has more stable sodium hyaluronate and different extracts such as Japanese pepper fruit, satsuma mandarin peel, allantoin, niacinamide and licorice root for hydrating, moisturizing and brightening. It also includes calendula flower extract for its anti-inflammatory benefits.
Anti Trouble Formula Ampoule Green (10mL)
There is actually 4 Formula Ampoule available to address specific skin problems:
- Anti Trouble (Green) – calming and dehydration
- Cell Repair (Red) – anti-aging and rejuvenating
- Mela-C (Yellow) – brightening and whitening
- Akne-C (Blue) – soothes and minimize heat stress on skin
The Anti Trouble Ampoule is the formula included in the Start Kit. It improves cell immunity and detoxifies toxin on the skin. This formula calms the skin in case of skin troubles, dryness and sensitivity.
- Mix the Ampoule with Skin Complex Formula to boost the effect. Shake well.
- After cleansing, spray on a cotton pad and wipe/pat on the skin.
The first thing I did is to mix the Skin Complex Formula (toner) and the Anti Trouble Ampoule. For me, the Anti Trouble Ampoule is the basic from the ampoule formula series. It is perfect for calming the skin in case of allergic reaction and breakouts. I tried using this toner in the morning and found out that its super dehydrating and moisturizing. I find it a little heavy to use during the day especially when you wear makeup.
Since it will make your skin super hydrated and moisturized, I prefer to use it regularly at night. I skipped using my moisturizer to see how moisturizing it can get and yeah it’s satisfying. But I decided that I’d still wear my moisturizer with it to add another layer of protection from dirt.
What I notice while using this toner for two weeks is that my skin became smoother as it lightens skin pigmentations. I have a sensitive area on my face that usually turns red or breakout as it reacts with products. But while using this formula, this part of my skin started to have less irritation. I believe that, if I will use this product religiously, this sensitive part of my skin will be treated eventually. The effect is really awesome!
And the last product…

- Use it as the last step of your skincare routine.
I use this product day and night in the hopes that it will help me recover from acne breakout due to hormonal imbalance during my period. I applied this cream to the following areas of my face:
- A pimple that recently started, large and inflamed
- A pimple that usually goes away after a few days, small and hard
- A sensitive part that reacts randomly from different products, red and might start a breakout
- A patch of dry skin
- A scar that’s been there for maybe more than a month now
- A new scar left by a dried out pimple
That’s a lot and yeah I have all of them on my face!
The ACSEN Recovery Cream comes in a tube, so I prefer using it on specific areas I need to treat rather than using it all over my face. Though I tried using it that way to see how it works. The result was a soft moisturized shining skin, but later on, I observed my T-zone became a bit oily.
By the way, I have a combination type of skin. The dry part is moisturized while the oily part became a bit more oily. So I ended up using it only on specific areas of my face. I started to observe how the product helps me recover from different types of skin problems in just 2 weeks.
The large and inflamed pimple started to dry out fast, yet it started to turn red and darken as it heals and left a scar. The scar continues to lighten and get smaller.
The smaller one became harder as it dries and eventually it’s gone.
The sensitive part of my skin somewhat improved with less irritation when I apply this cream together with the Skin Complex Formula. No itching, less redness and irritation.
The patch of dry skin became moisturized with less flaking. I really hate it when its flakes and itch.
The pimple scar that I wanted to remove for a month now became lighter and is almost gone. It’s such a relief to see it heal and lighten.
The new scar I got from a really small pimple started to heal as well. I usually get pimples when I touch my face with dirty hands. I can’t help it especially when I’m busy finding solutions at work. All I can say is, ACSEN Recovery Cream is way better than pimple patches in the market.
Overall, the Troiareuke Aesthetic Start Kit is an absolute experience of treating yourself to a high-end aesthetic spa treatment with its effective healing and repair for different types of skin problems. It might be expensive but investing in products like these are really worth it. At least your money goes into something that really works and doesn’t leave you with false hopes. I highly recommend Troiareuke skincare products!
