Purifying Calendula Toner 13% AHA 150ml
Purifying Calendula Toner is an effective, Vegan friendly 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.

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.
