Key ingredient

Glycolic Acid assists in unclogging pores, refining and diminishing the appearance of enlarged pores. 6% Glycolic Tonic reveals radiant glowing skin, by dissolving the bonds that allow old skin cells to stick together and thicken.

    Absolutely love the glow tonic. Already ordered my second bottle. The gentle exfoliating action leaves my skin looking radiant and youthful, without irritating my skin.

  2. Hloni Mathebula (verified owner)

    The one thing that I appreciate about this tonic is that it does not sting or leave the skin over dried and tight.

  3. Zonia Scheffer (verified owner)

    I will use this product for ever. I use it every morning. No more dead skin cells. It is definitely what the name says : an Exfoliating Glow Tonic! The next product penetrates even beter.

    I have been using this product for two weeks now and I am impressed ☺️. I love the fact that it doesn’t cause irritation on my skin as my skin tends to be sensitive at times. It brings moisture to my skin leaving it feeling brighter and fresher. It also gives a glow to your skin showing that it is getting rid of all the dead skin.

    I believe I have found the perfect exfoliate for my skin🙂.

    I’ve been using this product for 2 months now and have seen great results. My pores are not as clogged up , due to this they have reduced in size as well. A gentle daily exfoliator that happens without your even knowing . My skin is looking and feeling amazing and it’s noticeable with many of my friends and colleagues complementing on the smoothness of my skin. I love my product and would recommended it .
