Great Toner, too!
I purchased this product, because even in my late 50's, I sometimes need to treat pimples. This product worked great for that, but what I have also discovered is that it is also great as a toner. It shrinks my pores, which has always been a problem on and below my nose, no matter how well I wash my face. I use it day and night, under my moisturizer, and have seen a noticeable improvement in the texture of my complexion.
I spend A LOT of money on my facial care products, but this product is a cost-effective solution to looking younger, and will be a staple in my facial care regimen from now on. Value for the money!

Natural solution that worked well!
I love trying all natural remedies so I was happy to find ASTI Clear for pimples and black heads. I break out from time to time and also have oily skin so suffer from black heads. The bottle is pretty small, though its concentrated so you don't need a lot. Also, it's convenient to carry with you for on the spot treatment.
When this product arrived I tried it right away since I had a pimple and it's been awhile since I had a facial so there were some black heads forming on my nose area. I opened it up and it looked to be a transparent gel with a light natural vanilla scent which quickly dissipated. It was not overbearing at all. I applied a very small amount to my pimple and a thin layer over my nose. Overnight I noticed the pimple because less irritated and the redness was gone. It started to dry up and within 2 days it was fully gone. Though I didn't notice much results with my blackheads at first, I noticed they were minimizing after almost 2 weeks. One thing that helped was that I steamed my face before using to loosen up the blackhead and open up my pores. This helped me to get a better result.
The one thing that bothers me a bit is that I can't really locate the ingredients. I looked on the website and found and ingredients page, but they were ingredients specific to each individual product. It's also not in the BTA-MALL listing other than noting about bitter melon extract. I really did like the product and it worked really well though I would like to know what I am putting on my skin. I am hoping the ingredients below are what is in the product because they are all natural and have loads of great benefits!
Below is what I found....
ASTI Life Natural Skin Care Products – What’s in it? (The technical stuff)
Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C and possesses all of the attributes of ascorbic acid. It is more easily absorbed by the body and can be stored in the membranes of the cells until needed. It is also a powerful antioxidant, the same as vitamin C. It also takes part in the biochemistry of the production of collagen and coAscorbyl palmitate also acts as an anti-inflammatory with certain conditions, such as psoriasis where topical application helped to reduce the extent of the lesions. Ascorbyl palmitate is the most widely used fat-soluble derivative of vitamin C in skin care. It is nonirritating and more stable than vitamin C. Furthermore, ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble antioxidant and is at least as effective as vitamin E in protecting the skin from lipid peroxidation (a key type of free radical damage in the skin). Numerous skin care products containing ascorbyl palmitate are commercially available.
Lauric acid is the main acid in coconut oil and in palm kernel oil (not to be confused with palm oil), and is believed to have antimicrobial properties. It is also found in human milk (5.8% of total fat), cow’s milk (2.2%), and goat’s milk (4.5%).[
When lauric acid is present in the body, it is converted into monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound which exhibits antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties. It acts by disrupting the lipid membranes in organisms like fungus, bacteria and viruses, thus destroying them. The compound monolaurin is an effective treatment for Candida albicans and fungal infections like ringworm and athlete’s foot.
L-ascorbic acid can be used to boost collagen synthesis. Also, it should be more stable and less irritating than vitamin C. So far, two compounds have found their way into the broad skin care market: ascorbyl palmitate and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. A few other highly promising derivatives are on the horizon.
Linoleic acid, the proper name for is: allcis-w6,9-octadecadienoic acid, and is required for maintaining the integrity of cellular membranes. linoleic acid applied topically metabolizes into ceramides and unsaturated omega-hydroxy fatty acids, restoring the moisture and barrier-integrity of the skin. Linoleic acid helps relieve flaky, itchy, or rough skin and maintain smooth, moist skin. A tablespoon of linoleic acid-rich foods or oils may be added on a daily basis to help improve and moisturize skin. Linoleic acid may also help with skin disorders such as atopic eczema.
Linoleic acid deficiencies include: eczema-like skin eruptions, conLinoleic acid is also a major component of dermal ceramides, the binding ‘mortars’ between cells that provide both skin strength and barrier function.28,29. A study found that essential fatty acid-deficient skin has a weakened water-retaining barrier and that Fatty Acids , specifically linoleic acid and gamma linoleic acid, are required for the skin to retain moisture, development of healthy skin and cell membranes, reducing puffiness and swelling. Science has found that linoleic acid is necessary to the enzymatic activity that develops skin cells into proper water-maintaining barriers.24 A deficiency of linoleic acid is characteristic of dry skin.25 Studies have found that a deficiency of linoleic acid is linked to conditions of poor skin such as acne.26 when applied topically, these two compounds reduce trans-epidermal water loss.
Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids have been found not only to reduce the damage and aging caused by sunlight, but when applied to the skin, also improve collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. Omega 3 and 6 oils have also proven to be successful in the treatment of psoriasis as well as eczemas. Although Omega oils are well know for the beneficial effect they have on your health when taken in supplement form, the topical application of these polyunsaturated fatty acids to the skin also offer great benefit – not only helping to moisturize the skin, but also helping to reduce inflammation and to strengthen the skin. These acids contribute actively to the development of the skin’s outer layer. They thus help promote the elasticity of the skin, as well as having an “anti-aging” effect on dry, damaged skin, in particular by ensuring a partial improvement of its structure.
Myristic acid, also called tetradecanoic acid, is a common saturated fatty acid with the molecular formula CH3(CH2)12COOH found in dairy products. Myristic acid links together the proteins that form the skin’s protective outer layer. It also regulates the skin cell regeneration, which prevents over active scaling. Myristic acid is often added co-translationally to an N-terminal glycine as a lipid anchor in biomembranes.
The ester isopropyl myristate is used in cosmetic and topical medicinal preparations where good absorption through the skin is desired.
Margaric Acid, Hydrates skin and reduces redness, prevents transepidermal water loss, Helps heal skin tissue, Absorbs quickly. It is known to be simply an intimate mixture of stearic and palmitic acids.

A Little Goes a Long Way
I have been using this as a spot treatment for acne and it seems to be helping. This product comes in a plastic bottle. The bottle is fairly small. It holds 30 ml. Even though it is small a little bit goes a long way with this product. It is a nice size because it is easy to throw in your purse and small enough to not take up much space when traveling.
It is a thin gel. It comes out in small amounts through the small pump top on the bottle. This gel is then spread over your problem areas. When you use this you should shake it first and just rub it into affected areas. I use this a couple of times a day and while I still have pimples that appear they are less red and go away faster than normal. The gel feels wet and slightly slimy when it is first applied, but after it dries you do not even notice it is there.
I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Amazingly quick healing of blemishes!
This serum is amazing! I initially received a product which was either damaged at the warehouse or something happened to it. So when I got it I was concerned about using it on my face. The seller quickly replied that she was very sorry and not happy that I had received a product that was not in perfect condition and she promptly sent me a replacement. And I'm so glad she did because this stuff is so amazing I'm going to have to buy the whole line! I put it on a couple smallish pimples that I've just had hanging around and the next day all but one were completely healed and gone! The only one that's still there is about 50% less noticeable than it was!
It's basically a clear gel which smells very clean. It contains aloe Vera and you can smell that. It absorbs very quickly and dries out and tightens up the pores which is great for me. I have always had oily and acne prone skin and have tried lots of spot treatments over the years but none that worked as quickly and easily and with as little negative effect as this. I love that all the ingredients are natural plant based products. It feels cool and soothing to the skin and just dries out and heals any little irritation without being overly drying. It reduces redness noticeably.
My son woke up with a cold sore this morning and I thought seriously about using it on that. But one of the ingredients is arginine and I read that is best avoided with cold sores. But seriously this stuff is so amazing! You will want to put it on any little spots that are bugging you too! I am so glad I was lucky enough to be able to try it and I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of the line from Asti life. I will be recommending this to everyone for a while!

I’m very happy with the results I’m getting
The redness from my acne calmed down in just a few days! I’m very happy with the results I’m getting, the product has shown to reduce the symptoms, and my skin looks and feels really great. I love the fact it is natural, I’m just not crazy about putting chemicals on my skin. I like that it is a gel and clear in color.

This is a really great product. I've been using this for over a week . I have noticed that the blackest a on my nose are hardly noticeable. Also I have applied this product to a blemish and it was gone within 2 days it didn't get any bigger . You can also use this on boils, zits, blackheads, and any other acne . The consistency of this product is thicker than liquid so it's super easy to apply . I'm really excited about using this and would recommend this to everyone men and women . It's also great to keep on hand for those teenagers who often have acne ! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my review !

I teach martial arts and occasionally have the opportunity to speak. The last thing I need is any concerns over my appearance. Though I don't spend too much time with skin care, a friend turned me onto this product, and it has been a godsend. This is the kind of complexion solution that will always have a spot in my cabinet.

The best natural skin care product on the market!
This has become my "must-have" beauty care item. It not only keeps my skin clear, but has reduced fine lines as well. It is the one skin care item I can't live without.
