Choosing the right tonic pH balanced for your skin.

Tonics are a very important and often overlooked step in proper skincare.  Tonics which are alcohol-free can help remove excess oil or cleanser (especially when using a creamy cleanser), by saturating a cotton ball and wiping the tonic onto freshly cleaned skin.  Tonics, when used after cleansing can help to re-balance the skin to a ‘normal’ pH (slightly acidic at 5.5 for those “numbers people”).  This will not only ‘prep’ the skin for the moisturizer and allow proper moisture retention.  Therefore, if you put moisturizers on unbalanced skin, it won’t work properly.  In turn, you’ll end up using more moisturizer.

All Gabriel Organics tonics have:
  • Convenient spray bottle to apply directly to skin or cotton round
  • Aloe Leaf Juice base (hydrates, nourishes, restores, speeds epidermal healing)
