FAQ's Glycolic Acid Toner

IS GLYCOLIC ACID AN AHA?

Yes it is. AHAs, encourage cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day


IS THIS GOOD FOR OILY SKIN? 

Yes, 5% Witch Hazel helps to minimise excess oil 


CAN I USE IT WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING? 

We recommend to avoid using exfoliating acids, such as Glycolic Acid Toner, when pregnant or breastfeeding. Consult with your doctor to stay on a safe side. 


I HAVE A SENSITIVE SKIN, CAN I STILL USE IT? 

We do not recommend Glycolic Acid Toner for more sensitive skin types due to its strong potency. Take a look at PHA toner as a gentler alternative


HOW TO USE WITH OTHER PRODUCTS:

AHAs like Glycolic Acid can be combined with most other products. However, there are a few to be careful with to ensure you don't over exfoliate and sensitize the skin.

It is not recommended to use both Glycolic Acid and Retinol at the same time, use on different nights if required. Don't mix with other AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Lactic Acid). Avoid mixing with Vitamin C products at the same time (Use Vitamin C in the AM and Glycolic Acid in the PM)


ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN WHEN USING AHA'S

Due to the exfoliating properties of AHA, and the fact it increases skin renewal, means the top layer of skin is newer and potentially more sensitive to sunlight. So we always recommend using in the PM and wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day.


AHAS VS BHAS - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are chemical exfoliators. Water-soluble, they work on the surface of your skin, encouraging cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are also chemical exfoliators. They are oil soluble, which means they work deeper in your pores, helping to target blackheads and reduce the bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Use AM or PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS? 

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity. 


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH LEVEL: 3.6-4.0

Milder than any other I've tried before!

I've tried other glycolic toners before and I can say this is the best one out of them all. It leaves my skin feeling clean without stripping my skin's moisture. It isn't harsh on the skin, I even use it on my body when I have blemishes on my chest or back.

A bit too strong for my skin

I am combining different products and in general I am very satisfied with the results of your formulas but when I use the tonic I feel my skin irritated and red, so I have stopped using it- especially in sensitive areas such as the wing folds (which is right where the most I was interested in his action).

Hello Almudena! We're so sorry to hear this. We would usually advise sensitive skin types to avoid Glycolic Acid, as this one is the stronger of the exfoliating acids. Instead, take a look at Lactic Acid or PHA 🖤

Transformed my skin

I've been into skincare for some time but never really found the exact winning formula to even my skin tone and reduce spots. I use this toner + the hyaluronic acid gel after doing the inkey list quiz and it worked so well. Took about 3 weeks to see a real noticeable difference and now I'm going make-up free when I would ordinarily have felt really self-conscious to. Highly recommend for combination skin! (oily t-zone)

Hello Emily,

Thank you so much for leaving a review!

Our Glycolic Acid Toner is a very potent exfoliant. We do not recommend it for sensitive skin and people who are just starting their journey with chemical exfoliants.

A better, gentler alternative would be Lactic Acid due to its hydrating properties. It also acts as an exfoliant, helping to gently loosen and remove dead skin cells from the skin's surface for a more even skin tone and brighter complexion while also helping to target the appearance of wrinkles.

Do not hesitate to get in touch, we would love to help with your routine! 🖤

Love it!

Great toner, ordered it twice due to PHA Toner always being out of stock. But I really need to stop using it, since I am trying to get pregnant.
