Then I Met You
Birch Milk Refining Toner
The ultimate foil to dull, congested skin, Then I Met You's Birch Milk Refining Toner harnesses a cocktail of exfoliating and moisturising extracts to effectively smooth the look of fine lines, reveal a brighter tone and clarify your pores. We'll take ten, please!
Made with all skin types in mind, this milky toner is as fit for acid aficionados as it is for exfoliating beginners.
With a base of over 70% birch juice, squalane, glycerin and sodium hyaluronate, the Birch Milk Refining Toner preps and hydrates skin, while an optimal 1% blend of AHAs (glycolic and lactic acid) and PHA (gluconolactone) smooths out fine lines, brightens skin and refines pores. Safe for daily use.
Ensuring your skin looks dewy and supple, marshmallow root extract then hydrates and protects your skin as it eases inflammation. In short, consider this toner as proof that battling blemishes doesn't need to leave your skin feeling stripped!
Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, Oily, and Sensitive Skin
Solutions for: Acne, Blackheads, Blemishes, Dullness, Pores, and Uneven Texture
Gentle for daily use. After cleansing, shake well and dispense Birch Milk Refining Toner into your hands and pat or press onto your face and neck. You can also use a cotton pad to gently swipe the toner onto the face and neck. Follow up with The Giving Essence (or essence and serum of choice) to hydrate and strengthen exfoliated skin. With any expected sun exposure, always protect your skin with sunscreen.
For beginners who don't regularly exfoliate, slowly incorporate the Birch Milk Refining Toner into your routine about 2-3x a week until your skin is acclimated.
For those accustomed to regular exfoliation with acids, alternate use with your other acid products (i.e. day vs. night or every other day) to prevent over-exfoliation and sensitization.
BIRCH JUICE - Our toner replaces water with birch juice (76% concentration), a skin-soothing and hydrating tree sap. Birch juice contains 17 amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, proteins and vitamins, including Vitamin B3 and skin-brightening Vitamin C.
MARSHMALLOW ROOT - This anti-aging plant extract reduces inflammation and fine lines, as well as hydrates and protects the skin. Made up of polysaccharides and flavonoids, it also contains mucilage, a dewy substance with skin-softening and antioxidant properties.
SQUALANE - Squalane is derived from squalene, a hydrocarbon that is naturally produced by our bodies to maintain moisture in our skin. It also boosts cell regeneration and allows other ingredients to absorb more efficiently into skin. Our squalane is plant-based.
GLYCOLIC AND LACTIC ACID - Glycolic and lactic acid remove dead skin cells, bringing forth fresh skin, counteracting hyperpigmentation and reducing sun damage. Our toner contains a 1% concentration of acids that it is effective but still gentle enough for daily use.
GLUCONOLACTONE - Gluconolactone is a naturally occurring polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that provides exfoliating, moisturizing and antioxidant activity without sensitizing the skin.
