Purifying Toner is a spray-on anti-acne toner that contains alcohol and menthol, making this another irritating toner for blemish-prone skin. These ingredients hurt skin’s healing process, risk making red marks from acne worse, and can stimulate oil production at the base of the pores. What a shame, because the pH of 3.8 is within range for the 2% salicylic acid this contains to work as an exfoliant. It is possible to formulate salicylic acid exfoliants without alcohol. You'll find several such options from Paula's Choice!
This purifying toner targets acne breakouts and soothes irritated skin with natural ingredients, including antioxidants, botanicals, tea tree oil, and salicylic acid.
