Product Details

Gentle Exfoliating Toner™ has surprised many customers with more sensitive skin, who have found other acid toners too aggressive. It does not contain Glycolic acid, witch hazel or alcohol so it will not feel harsh on the skin

Gently powered by a cleverly balanced complex of lactic acid, tartaric acid & citric acid which are all natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs). While they remove skin dulling dead skin cells, hyaluronic acid and natural betaine soften and hydrate at the same time. That's why there is no sting. We call it intelligent formulation where one of our genius skin scientists crafts the formula so that your skin gets all it needs, not just a hit of acid. 

Skin looks clearer and brighter and will feel hydrated and plumped. Not stripped or dried out, like the more commonly astringent acid toners that have been popular.

A little and often approach to exfoliation is good for almost every skin type. It’s an especially beneficial step for those who wish to age youthfully, revitalise dull or sallow skin and for anyone needing to control congestion, oil, spots and acne. This will help to;

    • Minimise the appearance of pores.
    • Brighten and hydrate the skin.
    • Reduce hyper-pigmentation.
    • Boost collagen reserves.
    • Control oil & help prevent skin blockages.
    • Reduce spots & blackheads.

For each skin type it specifically helps;

    • Reveal fresher, brighter, more radiant skin for all skin types.
    • Help treatment products absorb more easily in dryer skins.
    • Even skin’s tone and texture for all skins.
    • Minimise fine lines and improve collagen for mature skins.
    • Remove excess, pore-blocking sebum for oily and problem skins.
    • Makeup applies more evenly for those who wear it

There are many people who want the skin benefits of exfoliation but not the stinging, redness, dryness, tightness and discomfort that often goes hand in hand with exfoliating toners and acid pads. Typically glycolic acid, especially in high concentrations is fairly aggressive and if over used can damage skin's protective moisture barrier.  


Therefore, I created a Gentle Exfoliating Toner with Chris, a genius cosmetic scientist and we crafted an intelligent formulation that gives all the benefits without the down sides. So you get effective removal of surface dead skin cells, that delivers smoothness, brightness, clarity, spot control, and minimises signs of skin ageing, without stripping the skin or leaving it taut and parched. 


Gentle Exfoliating Toner is powered by a natural AHA complex in the max level of 15% so that it's super effective. Then we selected other ingredients that would add essential hydration so the skin would be left feeling comfortable and soft, not ravaged.


As always, I put the formula out to test before manufacturing. This time, I offered it to followers of Caroline Hirons as many of them already use exfoliating toners and would be tough-to-please crowd. The comments were brilliantly and overwhelmingly positive and many commented that they loved getting the results without the stinging.  It's another in the line up of #carolinemademedoit and also Ruth Crilly of A Model Recommends.
