Title Ultra Gentle Yet Effective Exfoliating Toner!
Posted by cutefruit (ip:) Date : 2019-09-04 Recommend : 추천하기 View : 8 Rate : 5점

In the skincare world, AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHAs (beta hydroxy acids) already have their fair share in the spotlight— but what are PHA’s?! PHAs aka polyhydroxy acids are basically second-generation AHAs that are milder than its predecessor. PHA molecules are larger compared to AHA and BHA molecules, so it doesn’t penetrate as deeply into the skin compared to the other acids— which means you’ll have lesser chances of experiencing any irritation and it won’t likely cause sun sensitivity to your skin! Not only do PHAs exfoliate the skin, but they also help moisturize it by attracting water molecules. The most common PHAs in the market are gluconolactone, galactose, and lactobionic acid.

I’ve been using the Benton PHA Peeling Toner* and here are my thoughts:

The toner comes in a sturdy pump bottle, which I love because it’s a breeze to dispense the product and I think it’s just more hygienic. I’ve been using this toner for about four weeks straight and have been applying it thoroughly around my face with a cotton pad. Guess what? I never experienced any stinging or tightening sensation AT ALL. The directions say that you can use it 2-3 times a week but it’s so gentle that my sensitive skin easily tolerated it, even if I accidentally used it 4 times in the same week (zoiks, no matter how mild an exfoliant is, don’t overdo it!). Like with all products, I recommend doing a patch test and easing into using it because everyone’s skin reacts differently, plus we have to be extra careful with exfoliants!

The consistency of the toner is very light and watery. It quickly absorbs through the skin and to my surprise, it leaves a nice moisturized feeling. Some notable ingredients are 3% of third-generation PHA Lactobionic Acid (efficiently exfoliates the skin with minimum irritation), Sodium PCA(component of Natural Moisturizing Factors and helps replenish skin), Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water (helps regulate sebum secretion and adds radiance to the complexion), Ceramide NP(improves the skin barrier function) and Sodium Hyaluronate (prevents skin dehydration).

I would say at about the three-week mark, I noticed that some pesky milia on my nose have completely disappeared…and you know how stubborn these things are! I also had some rough texture on my cheeks prior to using this toner, but now my skin feels way smoother. My skin looks brighter and even-toned, although there are still some dark spots that need to be addressed. I’m not sure if the toner is too mild for it, but I’ll find out once I finish the whole bottle!

Overall, I think it’s an effective yet gentle exfoliating toner. I highly recommend trying it if you have sensitive skin and if you want to explore using exfoliants with minimal risk of irritating your skin.

Full ingredient list: Aqua (Water), Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water, Pentylene Glycol, Lactobionic Acid (3%), Glycerin, Sodium PCA, Propanediol, Chrysanthemum Morifolium Flower Extract, Oleanolic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Gluconate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Enantia Chlorantha Bark Extract, Ceramide NP, Allantoin, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate
