This is our detailed product review for the InstaNatural Vitamin C Facial Toner.
Let’s see if it lives up to the hype.
- Effective and gentle to sensitive skin
- Quickly removes impurities without over-drying
- Lovely scent that isn’t overpowering
- The spray bottle is a bit difficult to use when you need a bit more than a mist
- While there’s no parabens, there is glycerin, so it could possibly cause a breakout in some with sensitive skin.
The InstaNatural Vitamin C Facial Toner is specifically formulated for sensitive, oily and problem skin.
The Vitamin C is an antioxidant and may help to protect skin by fighting free-radicals. Vitamin C helps the extracellular matrix improve elasticity and elasticity occurs when the collagen fibers become stronger. Less flexible collagen fibers allow for quick skin repair and regeneration after damage, so it may provide antioxidation protection.
The formula for Facial Toner is designed to remove excess oil while maintaining balance of oil and water on the skin. This is accomplished with a high ratio of glycolic to lactic acid components. Glycolic acid (25%) is an alpha-hydroxy acid produced by skin's sebum, which is in between the water and fat layers.
Glycolic acid is involved in the formation of collagen and may stimulate collagen production around the skin's capillaries. Lactic acid (10%) is a humectant with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E is also included to help nourish the skin.
The toner is sold in 4-ounce size. 4-ounce packaging is best for when you want to take a toner with you and can't be sure how much you are going to use per month.
