NoTS (“Noble Through Skin”) is a luxury Korean skincare brand. I was sent the NoTS 28 Remedy Perfect Solution Set by Q-Depot, a Korean beauty distributor. The set contains a cleanser, toner, serum and cream, and is intended for sensitive and acne-prone skin. I tried out this set on my skin exclusively for two weeks.

NoTS 28 Remedy Acne Pore Cleanser claims to cleanse deeply while leaving the face bright and moisturised, soothe damaged skin and balance skin moisture. It’s advertised as a KFDA (Korean Food certified cleanser with clinical trials to back it up – back up what exactly, I’m not sure. It has a thick texture, and is quite thorough, but it left my face a bit squeaky – I’m not sure if it’s due to it stripping the oils from my skin, or if it’s leaving a squeaky residue (some cleansers do this on purpose since some people like the squeaky sensation). The pH of this cleanser is 7 which is on the higher side, but my skin didn’t feel overly dry or dehydrated after using it for two weeks, so it’s either not stripping, or the other products compensate for it!

NoTS 28 Remedy Balancing Toner is meant to hydrate, remove excess sebum, improve the complexion, slow the formation of wrinkles and heal pimples and pigmentation. It has niacinamide as one of the top ingredients, which can do all these things, but unfortunately it doesn’t say how much there is, so I’m not sure if there’s enough to be effective (from the ingredients list order, it looks like there is). There’s also adenosine, which is less well-studied, but it seems to have anti-irritant and wrinkle-reducing effects. There are also a whole bunch of botanical extracts in the ingredients which don’t have many/any good studies to back up their benefits, but there are probably some antioxidants in there too. I generally don’t use toners for actives, but it looks like this one could have beneficial effects. The texture is a watery gel which sinks in quickly. Its pH is around 5, so it would likely also help restore skin pH after the high pH cleanser.

NoTS 28 Remedy Intensive Serum claims to heal skin irritation and damage, strengthen skin and improve elasticity and firmness. It contains more niacinamide and adenosine, as well as “10Times HF Complex and a Patent Ingredient”. Like the toner, it contains a whole bunch of botanical extracts which may or may not be effective. It spreads very well on skin so you don’t have to use much.

NoTS 28 Remedy Repair Cream is advertised as a “nutritious cream that deeply nourishes the skin and repairs and soothes pigmentation, acne scars, and skin irritations”, and it’s also completed clinical trials (again, not sure what for). Like the toner and serum there’s the niacinamide and adenosine combo, which have fantastic skin effects, and botanicals. The cream smells a bit like tea tree oil, but surprisingly it doesn’t contain any – the scent is probably from the Melia Azadirachta (chinaberry or white cedar), which is better known for its anti-lice effects, but might also be antibacterial. This cream is very thick and rich.

NoTS 28 Remedy Perfect Solution Set Skincare Review

I quite liked the NoTS range – my skin was great during the two weeks I used these products and for a little afterwards as well. The sticking point for me though, is how pricey their products are. I’ve had similar results with cheaper products so I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing, but if your budget is a bit bigger, these are fun products to try!

  1. I tried the balancing toner and although I love it it is super pricey. You mentioned using cheaper products with similar results so I was wondering if there’s a product that you would recommend that would be similar to this toner? Thanks for any input!

    • Not the same ingredients, but I really like Pixi’s Glow Tonic – it’s AHA-based though. I don’t know of any niacinamide toners but I’m sure they exist!
