For a toner that promises that it “packs a punch in the fight against free radicals and sun damage,” Sweetsation C*Bella Organic Brightening Toner with Vitamin C and Enzymes ($24) is pleasantly gentle. It leaves my skin feeling soft and comfortable, not all the stripped and tight feeling that some toners create. Once again, Sweetsation has produced a natural product that is agreeable to use and effective.
I am focused on some areas of hyperpigmentation these days and have been dabbing Sweetsation C*Bella on them once a day. For all over the face and neck, I have been using it about three times a week. I think, however, that it is more than gentle enough for daily use and Sweetsation C*Bella is a great way to get some anti-aging and skin brightening ingredients into your regimen.
Exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids come in the form of sugar cane (the source of glycolic acid) and maple. Pineapple and papaya have enzymes that exfoliate as well. Citrus fruits and vitamin C (here it is ascorbic acid) play an important back up role in skin brightening. The base is soothing aloe juice and there are antioxidant fruit extracts providing a well-rounded formula.
If you regard toners as a superfluous step in skin care, Sweetsation C*Bella Organic Brightening Toner with Vitamin C and Enzymes should help you reconsider. It tones, closes pores, removes dead skin cells, lightens age spots and leaves the skin feeling all the better for it.
