This was my first clean beauty foray into a strong Acid Toner. An acid toner is basically a combination of alpha or beta hydroxy acids, which chemically dissolve the bonds holding the top layer of dead skin cells, thus allowing them to be shed, thereby revealing the new, brightened, even-toned and younger looking skin underneath.

To stay true to the Sabbatical Beauty formulation ethos, I've put this together by throwing in just about every fruit acid and enzyme I could get my hands on, thereby giving you one of the cleanest profile, yet most effective acid toners you've probably ever tried.

Ingredient Deep Dive:

🍍Tropical Fruit Enzyme Complex (Lychee, Jujube, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Mangosteen & more) for gentle exfoliation. Enzymatic exfoliation is one of the most gentle forms of exfoliation

🍍 Fruit Acid Alpha Hydroxy Acid Complex (Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Orange, Lemon & Sugar Maple). Alpha Hydroxy Acids do an excellent job helping dry skin to better hydrate and to reduce the appearance of fine lines

🍍 White Willow Bark Extract, which is a natural source of Beta Hydroxy Acids. Beta Hydroxy Acids are especially good for regulating oil production.

🍍 Prickly Pear Extract and fermented Pomegranate, Pineapple, Apple for even more gentle fruit acid exfoliation

🍍 Fermented Bamboo which helps to deeply hydrate and to reduce discoloration and even skin tone

🍍 Base of Aloe Vera to hydrate, soothe and nourish skin while exfoliating

  • Brightening, reduces scars
  • Strongly exfoliating
  • Antiwrinkle
  • Helps acne
  • Regulates oil production, increases skin's capacity for hydration

To use: Apply on cleansed skin using a cotton pad. For best results, wait 20 minutes before proceeding with other steps. Then follow with serums, moisturizers etc.

If you have sensitive skin or are new to acid toners, start with once a week. You can gradually increase use as you get more tolerant. Overuse usually results in reddened, irritated skin and flaking.

It works!

I never really understood what toner was supposed to do but I have congested and dehydrated skin that discolors easily and this one works! I actually have been like, “ohhhhhhhhhhhh this is what toner does!” Helps with the congestion via exfoliation and seems to really help fade redness, dark spots and scars. I use this after cleansing and before my full serums. I find that waiting 10-20 minutes before applying serums gets best results. Ordering more right now!

smoother, softer, brighter

I never used toner, but after reading everyone's rave reviews of BAT on the SB Facebook page, decided to give this a try. Wow! I'm a convert. BAT leaves my skin smoother, softer, and brighter. Give it a try!

Incredibly effective

The best exfoliating toner I’ve ever used. Whisks always dull skin, refines pores, and helps my skin glow. I love the gentle tingle upon application. I use sparingly, as with all my SB products, a little goes a long way.

Definitely noticed a glow after use

This toner really works it. There is a little bit of a sensation after application and that’s the acid working. After a few days, I noticed my bare skin is not so dull looking. Definitely noticed a glow. Not sure if it’s appropriate for sensitive skin as the sensation may possibly be too much for those with sensitive skin.

Magic

This is a go-to in hotter months, or for post workout washes. It's a good exfoliant, and it helps the serums and moisturizers sink in. My skin is notably better, and less prone to break-outs. (And generally great for anti-aging.) A little goes a long way, so a full-sized bottle will last you a while. Follow with Marine Serum before your lotion.
