*GIFTED If you’ve followed me for any length of time you’ll know im a massive fan of Acid Toning, i feel like there are many more benefits than conventional physical exfoliation.
Pore Minimising Tonic is great for using just after you cleanse as it will help to minimise the appearance of pores.
Contrary to popular myth pores do not open or close they only look large and open because they are congested with a mixture of sebum and dead skin cells.
This acid tone is a combination of both Lactic and Mandelic acids which are known to be more gentle on the skin than Glycolic tends to be.
Imagine Lactic Acid as as little pac men that eat up all of the dead skin cells. Lactic acid is great for dry skin as it is known as the hydrating acid.
Mandelic acid is a great exfoliant it’s not as effective as glycolic due to its size (twice as large) since Mandelic is rather new there isn’t much research on it just now.
The only problem is I'm not sure what the percentage is of this product it could be as low as 5% but there doesn't seem to be anything that explains the strength.
Usually with a glycolic toner I feel a tingle but with this I didn’t feel anything which is great because If you've been following me for a whole you'll know that i have been use prescription strength retinoidl and I have to be careful now since my skin is a little more sensitised.
