Clearer and smaller-looking pores can be yours—without ever risking tightness or dryness. The secret is raw white willowbark, a powerful source of natural BHAs with multiple benefits: inflammation-calming, dead skin-dissolving, and texture-smoothing. Blended with hydrating squalane, it’s a first-of-its-kind fusion that dislodges and exfoliates away excess oil, dirt, and debris while also quenching skin. This blend of ancient wisdom and modern technology is made to balance the oiliest skin types without dehydrating the driest, and leaves skin refreshed and ready for the rest of your skincare regimen.

  • Mild exfoliation unclogs and minimizes pores, for a smooth and flawless look.
  • Includes willowbark extract, a natural source of exfoliating beta hydroxy acids that has the power of salicylic acid without the irritation.
  • BHA toner contains hydrating squalane—no alcohol—so skin is left softly refreshed and clean-feeling, never stripped or dry.

For external use only. Use only as directed. We recommend a patch test prior to use if you are particularly sensitive. If irritation occurs, consult a dermatologist.

All Ingredients:

Water/Aqua/Eau, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Glycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Water, Squalane, Sorbitan Oleate Decylglucoside Crosspolymer, Betaine Salicylate, Microcitrus Australasica Fruit Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Water, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Water, Sodium Hyaluronate, Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Oil, Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract, Coccinia Indica Fruit Extract, Melia Azadirachta Flower Extract, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Flower/Leaf Extract, Amber Powder, Corallina Officinalis Extract, Sodium Chloride, Citric Acid, Sodium Gluconate, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Pelargonium Graveolens Oil, Citronellol.

  • This toner should come after cleansing and before eye/serum treatments.

  • No, this is alcohol free and is non-drying.
  • No, it contains Willow Bark Extract which contains natural salicylates. These act on the skin as a natural BHA would (gently exfoliating, tightening pores, balancing oil) but it is a much more anti-inflammatory ingredient.
  • The amount of Willowbark in our Pore Toner is equivalent to 2% BHA.

Squalane & BHA Pore-Minimizing Toner

It’s the best toner ever. It picks up any skin debris left behind by your cleanser & leaves the skin feeling as smooth as silk. It does indeed close my pores!

Not for sensitive skin

I got a travel sized bottle from the biossance advent calendar last year. I love their other toner in the spray bottle but this particular formula caused my skin to look like crepe paper. I also got little tiny bumps on my forehead. I only use it for my nose since it is oily but my skin doesn’t really like it. Dried it out too much.

Blemishes

I started getting blemishes around my chin. I was already using the cleanser but started using the toner once blemishes were popping up and the toner helped a lot! i use the squalane oil periodically but overall my blemishes have reduced.

Toner

It’s strong enough to do it’s job but amazingly it doesn’t dry my skin out. I’ve tried several toners & they are either too strong or feel like a essence & brake me out.
