    HOW TO USE IT

    Soak a clean cotton pad with toner and gently apply to skin where needed, avoiding the delicate eye area. Follow with the MCoBeauty Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Face Serum.

    If you are new to actives, particularly AHAs/BHAs, we suggest introducing this toner slowly into your routine, using it 1-2 times a week at night at first, then increasing use as your skin builds up tolerance.

    We suggest patch testing first. Exfoliation can increase skin sensitivity to the effects of sun exposure. If irritation occurs, discontinue use.

    FAQ

    How often should I use this product?

    That depends on your skin type. Oily and congested skin types LOVE this product, with some even using it twice a day, morning and night. 

    Those with normal/dry/sensitive skin might prefer to use this toner at night, 1-2 times a week. 

    If you are new to actives, particularly AHAs/BHAs, we suggest introducing this toner slowly into your routine, using it 1-2 times a week at night at first, then increasing use as your skin builds up tolerance.

    Is this product suitable for sensitive skin?

    The entire MCoBeauty Skincare range has been formulated with sensitive skin in mind and all of our products are suitable for those with sensitive skin. 

    But as always, we encourage you to listen to your skin's needs and tailor your routine accordingly. Some people with sensitive skin can exfoliate every few days, while others can only tolerate exfoliation once a week or once a fortnight. 

    If you have sensitive skin, we recommend introducing this toner into your routine once a week as a chemical exfoliating treatment, then increasing the frequency of use as you build up your tolerance.

    What is an AHA and what is a BHA?

    AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid while BHA stands for Beta Hydroxy Acid. 

    These are both types of chemical exfoliants that resurface the skin, dissolving dead skin cells to reveal beautifully fresh, clean and glowing skin. 

    Lactic acid and glycolic acid are AHAs and are two of the most popular exfoliating ingredients used in skincare products. 

    Salicylic acid is a type of BHA that is hugely popular among those who experience congestion and regular breakouts, as unlike an AHA it goes beneath the skin's surface to deeply exfoliate your pores, removing excess sebum that causes pimples. It can also control oil production to prevent oiliness and breakouts.

    What is the difference between a physical exfoliant and a chemical exfoliant?

    Our Gentle Vitamin C Exfoliating Scrub is the perfect example of a physical exfoliant. Scrubs are physical exfoliators because they use tiny granules to physically exfoliate the skin, buffing away dead skin cells to reveal a smooth, soft complexion. 

    Our AHA/BHA Pore Refining Exfoliating Toner is the perfect example of a chemical exfoliant. The toner uses AHAs and BHAs, two types of liquid chemical exfoliants, to dissolve dead skin cells, instead of physically buffing them away. 

    Chemical exfoliants are completely safe to use on the skin and are scientifically proven to improve skin health. We recommend applying a sunscreen everyday when incorporating chemical exfoliants into your skincare routine.

    Does this product contain alcohol?

    Yes, our AHA/BHA Pore Refining Exfoliating Toner does contain alcohol, which acts as a purifying preservative to ensure the ongoing stability and sterility of the formulation.

    Amazing product

    I was very skeptical to buy and try Mcobeauty skincare products. When i started here in Australia my dilemma is i can't find a good product to match my skin and my preference. So when it was on sale i grabbed the opportunity and bought a whole bunch. Now im happy with how my skin looks only after a week of using it. My skin looks plump, radiant, pores was minimizen and dullness was gone. Definitely very delighted and will continue usingit.

    Toner Review

    I like the toner bc it makes my skin feel like it gets a deep clean after use! Only downside is it seems to dry out my skin and I have to double moisturize after using the toner.

    AM

    Those with oily/congested skin can use the AHA/BHA Pore Refining Exfolating Toner in the morning, after cleansing but before your serum, moisturiser and sunscreen, once they have built up a tolerance to chemical exfoliants. 

    For those with normal/dry/sensitive skin, the AHA/BHA Pore Refining Exfoliating Toner is best applied at night, after cleansing but before your serum and moisturiser. 

    If you are new to AHAs/BHAs, we recommend using this product 1-2 times a week at night to start with, then building up as your skin adjusts.

    PM

    After cleansing, soak a cotton pad in the AHA/BHA Pore Refining Exfoliating Toner and swipe all over the face, focusing on areas with extra congestion or oil production. Follow with your serum and moisturiser.

    Enriched with native Aussie botanicals.
