Gently, Effectively Remove Buildup And Impurities

Gently, Effectively Remove Buildup And Impurities

A super gentle exfoliating toner to remove dead skin cells, while preserving the skin barrier.

With a very considered blend of lactic acid (the most gentle AHA), a slow releasing poly-hydroxy acid (PHA), and aloe vera extract, this exfoliating toner is as effective as it is soothing. Designed with sensitive skin and those new to chemical exfoliants in mind, this toner will remove build up of dead skin cells and impurities, soften the appearance of fine lines, boost skin hydration, and pay your water bill (no).

Perfect if you are chasing extra radiance, or someone who has steered clear of exfoliating toners due to skin sensitivity. Rich in vitamins c, e and beta carotene this gentle formula works to reduce discomfort and calm irritation, while amplifying skin nourishment.

Important! When using AHA products, wearing daily SPF becomes even more crucial. So, do it!

    Game changer!

    I didn’t think that an exfoliating toner would make THAT big of a difference in my skin but BOY WAS I WRONG. I’m currently pregnant and my skin has been irritated and bumpy, and this gave me a smooth glow INSTANTLY. I won’t ever go back!!!

    Pretty good, but maybe not so gentle?

    I swapped to the Goto toners after using the Watermelon Glow one for years as Goto is a better price point. I have been using the Cleansing toner but as I'm wanting to get pregnant I swapped to the Gentle one. I had no issues with the Cleansing toner, so strange that the Gentle cleanser seems to be a tad bit too strong for my skin if I my exfolikate cleanser beforehand. I've just switched up my routine a bit to accomodate and otherwise find it to be just as good as Watermelon Glow

    Too harsh for my sensitive skin

    I have very sensitive skin but never had trouble with the Go-to lactic acid swipeys. I thought I would give this one a go but I find it's harsher and my skin doesn't like it. My sebacious fillaments have come back as well so also not sure if it actually works better than the swipeys.

    Great for Rosacea!

    I’ve had rosacea for many years and have never found a toner/exfoliator that doesn’t burn the crap out of my face - until now! This is gentle and effective and within a month I saw visible results on the improved texture of my skin and reduced breakouts. Just got my second bottle! Very happy.

    Hi Jodie! Thanks for your feedback on this one, so happy to hear this has worked and helped your rosacea! We don't usually recommend our Exfoliating Toners for Rosacea skin as it can be too harsh. But lovely to hear it's doing the opposite for you!
