Purifying Calendula Toner 13% AHA 150ml
Purifying Calendula Toner is an effective facial astringent recommended for normal and normal to oily skin. Its normalising pH helps to fight bacteria, making it particularly valuable for skin types with partial oiliness and break outs. PH 3.8
This exfoliating facial toner combines the effective exfoliation properties of 10% Glycolic Acid and 3% Lactic Acid with hydrating aloe vera and healing calendula extract. It works to remove the last traces of cleanser, along with dead skin cells and excess oil to leave skin feeling smooth, soft and ready for the next stage in your skincare routine.
How does it work?
Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid effectively accelerate the exfoliation of the skin's dead cells to help reduce blemishes and breakouts while also fighting against premature ageing. The 10% content of Calendula extract provides anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, soothing and moisturising properties.
Why use an acid based toner? When we cleanse, the PH of our skin naturally gets higher, a high PH creates a breeding ground for bacteria, so by using an acid toner you're instantly lowering your skin's PH. The exfolating action of the toner also means that by removing these dead skin cells, the moisturiser you then apply is going to work a lot more efficiently as it's reaching your healthy skin, there's no point moisturising dead skin.
If you would prefer this product with a pump, it can be purchased separately HERE.
As recommended by Caroline Hirons size has changed since then so the price is now higher to reflect this, there are also a few ingredient changes.
After cleansing, apply with cotton wool, sweep across the face and neck, avoiding the eye area and mucous membranes.

Lush bottles and the juice inside is terrific. Very happy with Calendula Toner - a gentle blend of lactic and glycolic acid. My skin says thank you - it’s a welcome treat after a hot sticky summer.
Very gentle yet nice exfoliant in a toner form. I would recommend this to all oily-combo skin types as it does not dry me out but purifies my skin well!
Maybe this toner is good on your skin (could be drying on normal to dry skin types), but if you are even a little bit sensitive to scents -- it's not your pick. It's also very lasting and washing your face won't help.
I've lost count of how many bottles of this toner I've used. It's an amazing mild exfoliant I use morning and night and it never irritates my skin. It keeps my skin blemish free and radiant. When I stop using this my skin starts to look dull. Combined with the Bravura exfoliating cream and serum it's amazing.
I'm in love with bravura london products, I use their cleanser and then this toner - it's lovely for my skin. Thank you!
Just ordered my second bottle of this fab toner-its smells beautiful,my skin feels super clean and refreshed after using and the bottle looks great-as do all the Bravura products. I also use the Azulene cleanser as my second cleanse(gentle and wonderful smell), the Collagen moisturiser and the Glycolic 15% night treatment. Can honestly say I love all these products, they make my skin look so much clearer, I have had less spots since i started using them. They are all superbly priced, fantastic value for money and effective, and the packaging is gorgeous. Have ordered the salicylic peel, and hyaluronic serum-cant wait to try them! For anyone who is wondering whether to try Bravura or not-DO IT-you won't be disappointed! :-)
I loved this stuff so much, I'm back to order it again after gifting my last bottle to a friend in Canada. I am so excited to have found Bravura, they are amazing. Beautiful packaging, AMAZING price point, astounding products. This toner is an absolute favorite of mine. Miles better than Pixi Glo-Tonic. Smells quite similar, but it doesn't leave that slightly sticky feel i get from PGT. Astringent without overdrying, leaves the skin balanced and ready to receive serums, oils, and moisturizers. Looking forward to being a life long customer to this beautiful brand
Let me start by saying I have spent a fortune on my skin from Estee Lauder night serum, Creme de lamer, the list goes on.... This toner is just great for anyone with oil/acne prone skin..even better around that hormonal time of month. The smell is lovely, very aromatherapy like so if you are used to using natural products you will appreciate the smell. Please don't be put off by other reviews. Toner cleanses your face without making it red although you might feel a slight tingle... this is very normal. Pores are refined, any blackheads are cleaned out... just a brilliant brilliant product and you will not find a better toner anywhere else. Now that I have found this, I will always use it. Works amazing with Glycolic 10% face cream too... MUST BUY!! Good luck ladies xxxx
Great price and great product. I like it better than pixi glow tonic, love the scent and the bottles are lovely x
This is really great at refining the texture of your skin. Not the biggest fan of the scent but the product inside is so good!!
Surprised at how small this is, will need to reorder again quite soon! Nice and cooling on the skin, had a couple of spots and it helped dry them up faster, but doesnt feel stripping on the skin. Can we have a bigger size please??! Bravura Note - Now in 150ml!
It's not a bad toner but it evaporates and doesn't last very long. Disappointing!
even tho i have acne oily skin i went for this toner as i didnt want to over dry my skin with a stronger toner! as i do peel slightly from strong clarifying products, this toner is so soothing yet hydrating! and really gives your skin a smooth polished surface after cleansing ready for moisturisation! it smells good too! love it!
leaves your skin smooth and helps to hydratate and eliminate blemishes!!! i love it
I haven't had a spot since using this and my pores aren't visible, helps with ingrown beard hairs as well! Non drying and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin! Lovely :D
