Oily skin, congested skin, acne, breakout-prone skin, men's skincare
Starring hero ingredient zinc pca, SKINICIAN’s Purifying Toner works to soothe and refresh oily and acne-prone skin, while reducing breakouts, redness and excess oil – making it the perfect toner for acne and other related concerns.
This skin-reviving tonic has been formulated to leave skin clear and matte, thanks to its secret weapon zinc pca (short for zinc pyrrolidone carboxylic acid), which regulates oil production and keeps shine to a minimum. Its concentrated formula also contains nourishing amino acids that work to reduce any pigmentation caused by acne scars, while brightening Vitamin C helps to reduce blemishes by 30%, by battling acne-causing bacteria. A few simple spritzes are enough to give your skin everything it needs to stay healthy and happy, while keeping breakouts at bay. Skin is left looking and feeling calm, with shine and redness reduced – and if you use this consistently over time, you’ll start to see fewer breakouts too.
“Acne and spots don’t just affect teenagers – more and more adults are getting it too, which is why we created the Purifying range to stop blemishes in their tracks. This toner can be used throughout the day and is the perfect pick-me-up for acne-prone, inflamed and oily skin. I wanted it to be formulated with zinc pca as this is renowned for balancing the skin’s oil production, so acne or a shiny T-Zone are no longer the bane of your life!” – Hilary McMurray, Co-founder SKINICIAN

When do you use skin Purifying Toner?
Use daily, morning and night after cleansing. Your Purifying Toner can also be used throughout the day over or under make-up to refresh and mattify the skin.
What is the best way to apply my toner?
There are three different ways you can apply your SKINICIAN Purifying Toner. You can:
Spray directly onto the skin - this is the quickest way to apply the product and will leave your skin feeling refreshed. (You can also apply your product throughout the day this way)
Apply using your hands - This application method is suitable for anyone who does not like the sensation of spritzing the skin.
With a cotton disk – It is okay to apply your toner on the skin with cotton discs if you prefer however it is important to note that it will waste some product as it will be absorbed by the cotton pads
Top tip - You can also use it to target a breakout by spritzing directly onto a cotton pad and wiping across the congested area.
Are toners good for acne?
We have formulated our Purifying Toner with acne fighting ingredients such as Zinc PCA which will help to control sebum production which clog pores.
Can I use my toner over make up?
Yes it is completely fine to spritz the Purifying Toner onto the skin over make-up. It will not affect the appearance of your makeup and by doing this may provide quicker oil regulation.
Is zinc PCA drying?
Zinc PCA won't dry skin and will keep skin hydrated. It also has anti-inflammatory properties so will help prevent irritated skin.
Can I use this if I have combination skin?
Yes, skin types such as combination skin can use this toner to help mattify oilier areas.
When do you use a toner in your skincare routine?
For best results, we advise using your toner after you have done a double cleanse and before you apply your moisturiser. However, because we like to bring flexibility to your skincare routine, you can also spritz this toner throughout the day if you find your skin getting oily.
Is it safe to use during pregnancy?
