Follow with Avène Rich Compensating Cream to keep skin hydrated and refreshed.


Birchbox Breakdown

Some people forego using toner to avoid potential side effects like an uncomfortable stinging sensation or the risk of breakouts. But with this alcohol-free, oil-free formula from Avène, your love-hate relationship with toner is about to turn into more of a love-love one. Enriched with Avène’s ultrasoothing Thermal Spring Water, this gentle toner maintains skin’s natural pH to leave it feeling fresh and soft, never dry.

How it Works

In addition to Avène’s exclusive spring water, this toner is developed with natural silicates to form a protective film, guarding against external causes of dryness. The advanced bi-phase formula, which is activated when shaken, cleanses, purifies, and rejuvenates. The result? A glowing, healthy-looking complexion.

How to Use

Shake well before using, and apply to face and neck using a soft cotton pad. Use a.m. and p.m. after cleansing.

Good Toner for Dry Skin

I have been using this toner for several weeks now, and I am really liking it. I have not used toners in a long time because they always leave my skin feeling tight and dry. This one gives me a cool, refreshed feeling but I do not notice any tightness or increased dryness afterwards.

Just ok

I am over 50 and really rarely does my skin break out. When I started using this toner my skin stated breaking out. You have to shake this toner before each use which is also a pain!!

Great product!

I have very sensitive skin and my dermatologist recommend this brand to me. I am in love! I have purchased multiple skin care products from this brand and have never had a problem with sensitivity. This toner is great and always cools down my face before I apply a moisturizer and my makeup.

Gentle touch for aggravated or sensitive skin.

I bought this Toner as a finish for the Avene Foam Cleanser. I have Rosacea but the usual medical treatments are not working, strangely, on just one side of my face. Doctor is clueless so I thought I'd try Avene with its reputation for calming and soothing.

It has not "cured" the problem, but I can also see it does not redden or annoy the skin surface like some toners. It does not feel crisp, bracing, cool or tight. It's barely noticeable going on, and leaves a clean finish.

I am in my 50's, so no need to control oil. Avene Toner is a mild toner that someone might like who feels "regular" or "acne" types are too strong. It's for people who feel they have just not been able to use toner in the past. This one I use without any fear.

It contains "French" water and you can see the water and other contents swirling a bit; so shake very gently.
