Platinum Skin Care's acid toner has a full 15% of glycolic/lactic/salicylic acid for maximum effectiveness on acne prone and oily skin. The average store bought glycolic toner has only 2% or 3%. It is used before your peels to prepare the skin for further treatment, and also on a daily basis thereafter to help lift away surface impurities. This is a wonderful product to start off using if you have sensitive skin and/or would like to build up to an acne peel. An alternative to this toner is our Purify Advanced Toner.
Acne sufferers please note
It takes approximately 3 weeks for a clogged pore in your skin to actually become a pimple/whitehead... and make its way up to your face. When you start using these glycolic acid products you need to remember to give your skin time to rid itself of the clogged pores that have already formed under your skin. This may take up to 3 weeks. After the clogged pores have made their way out you will see a remarkable difference in the clarity of your skin! The glycolic acid will help to keep your pores clear so the process doesn't keep repeating itself.

I bought this for my teenage daughter to clear up blackheads and pimples. We are seeing a nice improvement.
If I had to keep only one skin care this would be it 5

I genuinely love this toner. I use it in conjunction with the AB cleanser. It has really helped with making my skin clearer and softer. My only con was I would get a stinging sensation that would only last a couple on seconds in certain spots but after week 2 I don't have anymore stinging. But I honestly would recommend this toner to anyone with oily, acne prone skin. As low long as they keep making this toner, I will always repurchase. It really change my skin care life.
This really works it will 5

I have veeery oily skin, and this seems to help dry things out and prevent acne! I use it with the AB cleanser as well and have gotten great results.

Toner works very well at reducing sebum and clearing acnic prone skin. Also does a good job of exfoliating skin and does not leave the skin tight or dried out. Very pleased product.

I love the new formula. I apply it to my face with my hands and fingers and it has completely eliminated any break outs. My chest and shoulders are also oily and I apply it in the same way and it keep these areas clear as well.
