Tonic Active - 2.2 oz
We have had numerous requests for a toner that was specifically designed to treat acne. Well here it is!
Tonic Active is a clarifying toner. Beta hydroxy acid (bha) found in salicylic acid exfoliates as it kills bacteria. This astringent does the job without stripping your skin and causing excessively dry or oily skin.
Rooibos tea extract provides antioxidant protection while the essential oils help get to the root of acne. Any acne-fighting skin care program is not complete without Tonic Active.Skin types: Acne - Blemished
Use only on areas where the skin is experiencing breakouts.
Salicylic Acid – Beta Hydroxy Acid, provides exfoliation preventing pore clogging and smoothing fine lines/wrinkles, penetrates pores to help clear out impurities
Lavender Essential oil – calming properties that promote the healing from skin types of scars, dermatitis, acne and eczema. Benefit to dermis is immediate since it easily and rapidly is absorbed by the skin. Is said to normalize any skin type and stimulate cellular growth and regeneration
Glycerin – Natural humectant used for its hydrating, softening and soothing properties
Rooibos Extract – full of beneficial phyto-nutrients that are antioxidant, energizing, detoxifying and immune-enhancing
Orange & Grapefruit Peel oil – essential oils to provide astringent properties

Tonic works well on pigmentation or a rising pimple. I use it as a spot treatment. A little goes a long way. I use a q-tip to apply the application on specific areas on my face at least 1-2 a week.
Anytime I feel a pimple about to form, I immediately take action with Tonic Active' all I need to do is wipe a little on the areas that seem problematic and like magic they go away' if I'm too late and it has already formed, it only takes a day or so for it to disappear.
I developed acne late in life, "at age 27" and when I was finally introduced to Lotus Moon by an aesthetician at 29, I'd been through dermatological hell. This toner was the last thing I added to my skin care routine and it has kept my acne at bay and also helped to reduce the appearance of acne scars. I highly recommend it!
This product has absolutely been a god-send. As I entered perimenopause, I developed horrendous cystic-like hormonal acne. This toner completely saved me and after about two months of daily use every morning, I stopped having issues all together. My morning routine is wash with Green Tea & Lavender Cleansing Milk mixed with the Lemon Poppy Seed Cleanse, followed by this toner on a damp cotton ball spread over my whole face, followed by Skin Boost Elixir and Hyaluronic Intensive for moisture. If you are experiencing any type of acne issue or breakouts, whatever your age, I strongly encourage you to give this toner a try!
I've been buying products from Lotus for many years now. They carry a unique product line that many don't carry and they're great quality. I LOVE the 3% Salicylic - this concentration is hard to find.
