A gentle toner that effectively improves skin's appearance


Brightens, smooths and evens out complexion



by Mei ling

I was absolutely thrilled to receive a sample of Astara AHA Nutrient Toning Essence ($36) from Truth In Aging. The bottle cap allows for easy dispensing of the product — just a few drops on a cotton pad, then swiping it all over my face and neck. The product smells of rose and orange peel, an unusual combination, but one which I now look forward to in my daily routine. I apply the toning essence every morning and night after cleansing, followed by a sunscreen or moisturizer.

Within the first week, my complexion was brighter and smoother. After a month, the fine lines around my mouth are softer, and my entire complexion seems to have evened out. Having perpetually oily skin prone to breakouts, I was impressed at how effective yet gentle this product was on my skin. I especially like that lactic acid is one of the first ingredients on the list, and attribute the clarity of my skin now to the usage of this product.

I would highly recommend Astara AHA Nutrient Toning Essence for those who want gentle exfoliation and skin brightening effects. After a month’s usage I have only gone through about a quarter of the bottle, but would not hesitate to purchase another once it’s finished.
