Below are links to lists of skincare products I’ve tested that have an acidic pH level that is lower than 6.0.
If you are new to my blog, then please click here to learn more about the pH level of skin, why I created this blog, and why you should only use products with a pH level lower than 6.0. If you are interested in buying pH strips, these are the ones I use. [Update Feb 2019: I recently purchased an Apera pH meter and I’ll be updating the posts that I can with the new pH level.]
Please note that these strips aren’t a perfect science so the pH levels noted below are estimates only that let us know if a product is more on the acidic side (or not). There is also some variation between batches of products and a manufacturer may have made changes to their formula since I tested.
Also, please be aware that I am not a medical professional in any way. This is my personal blog and my reviews are merely my opinion. I am not allergic to any ingredients that I know of and I do not have very sensitive skin. It is possible that you could have a different result using the exact same products that I do. This blog is not a substitute for medical advice so if you are in doubt, please ask your physician for product recommendations.
Note: the links below will take you to a list of products that I’ve tested and their pH levels. I often use Amazon affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. If I’ve written a review, a link to it is also included. All products reviewed have been purchased by me. I don’t write a ton of reviews because I only review products that I buy for myself with the expectation that it is my new, forever product (with a few exceptions). This means I’ve likely used any product I’ve reviewed for many months.
