Helps Treat: A more defined texture with pores visibly reduced

Feels Like: A toner

Recommended For: All skin types

Inspired by 30 years of research and innovation, this breakthrough 3–in–1 formula combines the properties of a mild chemical exfoliant, a toner, and an essence to reveal smoother, softer, and more hydrated skin.

A powerful combination of Augustinus Bader's TFC8® and acids - including lactic and phytic (AHAs), salicylic (BHA), and gluconolactone (PHA) - gently exfoliate while enhancing the skin's ability to retain moisture. The result is a brighter, smoother complexion with a radiant, nourished glow.

How to Use

Pat into cleansed, dry skin with your fingers or use a cotton pad to sweep over the face, neck, and décolleté. Allow the toner to penetrate the skin for a few moments before applying your Augustinus Bader moisturizer.
