This AHA toner combines the effective exfoliation properties of 10% Glycolic Acid and 3% Lactic Acid with hydrating aloe vera and 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 (AHA's) effectively accelerate the exfoliation of the skin's dead cells to help reduce blemishes and breakouts while also fighting against premature ageing. Calendula extract (10%) is said to provide 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 AHA 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.
