Gentle Exfoliating Toner™

Best acid toner for: Exfoliation. Brightening. Pores. Oil control. Blackheads. Freshen. For all skins.


Powered by natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs), this acid toner is carefully constructed to hydrate and calm at the same time. There is no ouch!  It gently yet effectively, exfoliates skin to:

• Reveal fresher, brighter, more radiant skin
Help treatment products absorb more easily
Even skin tone and minimise fine lines
Remove excess, pore-blocking oil
Allow makeup to apply more evenly

Great for all skins, especially those who wish to age youthfully, treat spot-prone skin, re-vitalise dull or sallow skin and its brilliant for those with more sensitive skin, who have found other acid toners too aggressive.  Men will benefit from a closer shave and fewer ingrown hairs.  Skin will feel hydrated and plumped, not stripped or dried out, like the more common astringent toners on the market.

How To Use:


Step 1.
After cleansing skin, apply Gentle Exfoliating Toner to a cotton pad.
Step 2.
Sweep the cotton pad over face and neck morning and/or night.
Step 3.
Don't forget to get around the hairline and behind the ears where shampoo and conditioner can get trapped and create dryness.

Natural AHA’s Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are proven to act as exfoliants, loosening and removing the top layer of dead cells by decreasing corneocyte adhesion. This reveals the new skin cells below. Natural AHA Complex provides a superficial peel action resulting in an improved surface appearance for a fresher, smoother look to skin. AHAs help to remove dry skin and can be useful in treating blemished or problem skin, unblocking and cleansing pores.

Hyaluronic Acid is highly prized for excellent hydration which helps provide plumpness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Natural Betaine is an osmoregulator that manages water balance in skin cells. It can hold 1.6x its own weight in water. It hydrates the surface of skin resulting in a soft and even finish.

There are many people who like the results of exfoliation but not the stinging, redness, dryness, tightness and discomfort that they experience with some exfoliating toners. Therefore, I wanted to create a product that was equally as exfoliating, would provide the smoothness, brightness, clarity, spot control, and line-minimising effects, 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.
