Sample - Revitalising Ginseng Toner with Glycolic Acid 5% 30ml
Revitalising Ginseng Toner is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid toner for normal to dry and sensitive skins and is ideal to balance your skin's PH after cleansing and to prepare your skin for treatments or your favourite moisturiser. PH 4.5 Alcohol Free
This delicately scented toner is infused with botanical extracts and exfoliating aha's which help to tone and firm, tighten the pores and smooth the appearance of the skin, to give it a finer, softer texture. Any last traces of cleanser is removed and skin feels ultra clean.
How does it work?
Ginseng is a natural supplier of oxygen to the skin cells whilst Glycolic Acid and Ammonium Glycolate (5%) work to help the skin loosen the excess accumulation of dead skin cells, which cause the skin to appear rough, dull and aged. With regular use, skin appears fresher and more youthful. Witch hazel is widely used for its toning and astringent 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 exfoliating 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.

After cleansing, apply with cotton wool, sweep across the face and neck, avoiding the eye area and mucous membranes.This gentle toner is suitable for all skin types but if you have very sensitive skin it's best to perform a patch test.

I like this toner and think it helps with my breakouts but just can’t decide! I have also used the calendula toner which I liked but thought I would try this due to having a few little breakouts. I especially like the fact it is a sample so you can try before you buy!
