Title An extremely gentle and hydrating chemical exfoliation toner
Posted by Knorrinski (ip:) Date : 2019-09-05 Recommend : 추천하기 View : 31 Rate : 4점


This chemical exfoliation toner uses 3% Lactobionic acid (a third generation hydroxy acid called a poly hydroxy acid) to clear away dead skin cells plus reduce impurities and sebum production.


Poly Hydroxy Acids provide mild chemical exfoliation by penetrating skin layers and removing dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother, clearer skin.

PHA's penetrate the skin more slowly than AHA's (eg: glycolic acid) due to larger molecular structures which cause much less irritation meaning they can be suitable for all skin types, including sensitive ones (e.g. rosacea). PHA’s are not considered photosensitising and in addition, they have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, humectant and moisturising effects.

All of these effects mean there is minimal irritation, tightness and dryness after using the toner

The ingredients are minimal with no added fragrance and includes humectants and moisturising factors such as Sodium PCA, Sodium Hyaluronate and Ceramide NP, plus Centaurea Cyanus Flower Water and Chrysanthemum Morifolium Flower Extract which are rich in vitamins, have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, soothing and moisturising properties.

 My Experience:

The product is in a 150ml plastic pump top bottle, is a translucent, watery, colourless liquid with a pH of 3 (according to my pH strips). I did find the pump top to be a bit stiff and so the liquid would sometimes shoot out and spill.


I’ve used it 3 to 5 times a week over the last 4 weeks without any irritation, tightness or drying effect. My skin feels smooth and soft, so the exfoliation effect is extremely gentle. Personally, I found the exfoliating effect too gentle and I wouldn't choose it as my long-term chemical exfoliator.


As I’m older, I also want to use products that help me to age gracefully. Studies show that the use of 5% glycolic acid chemically exfoliates but also stimulates fibroblasts and collagen synthesis. The only study I found which shows that Lactobionic acid has similar properties, used an 8% concentration, so my concern is that the 3% used in this toner wouldn't be high enough to produce these benefits.

I'd recommend this to those who have very sensitive skin who otherwise can’t chemically exfoliate and to young people/skincare newbies as a way to introduce chemical exfoliation into their routine in a very gentle and non-irritating way.

This product was kindly provided by Benton for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
