What is The Bitter Green Essence Toner
and How To Use It

The ultra-soothing toner you’ve been searching for.

Truth is most people have no idea what toners are for. We get it — they can be super confusing especially when it comes to one of our favorites: the Bitter Green Essence Toner. As it combines toner and essence all-in-one. Don’t worry, we’ll break it down!

Green Tea

We’re what you would call matcha obsessed. So, when it came to time to formulate this green-powered toner we knew we had to include Green Tea. These fresh tea leaves are enriched with high doses of antioxidants and polyphenols including epigallocatechin gallate aka EGCG — an anti-inflammatory plant compound that protects the skin from UV-photo damage and premature aging. This is why antioxidants are a must-have in any routine!

Besides being an amazing anti-ager — Green Tea is also well-known for it’s antibacterial and astringent properties. This is thanks to another compound called tannins which reduce sebum/oil production further combating acne and skin texture. This is just one of the many green ingredients we including to smooth skin texture and balance the skin. 

Artichoke

Artichoke is chock full of antioxidants and peptides which improve skin texture, combat fine lines and wrinkles, and visibly reduces the appearance of large pores for a soft, radiant glow. This nourishing vegetable is rich in natural vitamin C to boost collagen production and revive dull skin and increase moisture retention. 

Centella Asiatica

We added a healthy dose of Centella Asiatica Water to the toner to soothe irritation and combat skin texture thanks to its ability to inhibit acne-causing bacteria. Centella Asiatica (aka “Cica”) is an ancient medicinal herb known for its powerful soothing properties that has been used in the East for thousands of years. It's jam-packed with antioxidants and soothing amino acids that improve the skin's barrier function increasing hydration levels and visibly calming redness and irritation. In fact, it's alternatively known as "tiger grass" because tigers used to roll around in it to soothe and repair their wounds.

Broccoli

Broccoli is a potent anti-inflammatory source of antioxidants including lutein, a carotenoid that works to protect your skin from oxidative damage. Environmental stressors like pollution and sun exposure encounter free radicals that can damage collagen leading to fine lines and wrinkles, sunspots, and sagging skin. Antioxidants like lutein work to combat that damage leaving you with firmer, more youthful skin. Broccoli is also rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids to increase moisture retention and reinforce your skin barrier.

Aloe

Did you know that aloe is made up of 90% water? This incredibly anti-inflammatory ingredient was a necessary addition to the toner for its powerful soothing and healing properties. It’s also loaded with Vitamins A and B, folic acid, enzymes, proteins, amino acids, good fatty acids, and triglycerides to infuse the skin with an amazing dose of hydration leaving skin feeling plump with moisture.

Long Story Short

💚Greens are amazing additions to any skincare routine but especially those looking to soothe inflammation and combat acne-causing bacteria. We combined a powerful blend of 33 different greens to provide a maximum dose of antioxidant power to hydrate, balance, and detoxify your skin. Don’t believe us? Just give it a try.

Q: WHAT ARE TONERS?

Traditionally, toners have meant alcohol-laden astringents that are supposed to balance oily skin when in reality, they dry it out and leave your skin desperate for hydration. Thankfully, the skincare world has come a long way since then and hydrating formulas have become the new norm. These are formulated to balance the pH of your skin and add a boost of hydration post-cleanse. This is an absolute must because when you cleanse your skin as the natural pH becomes disturbed which can lead to damage if it doesn’t return to homeostasis.

BOOST YOUR HYDRATION LEVELS

After cleansing with the nourishing Rice Cleansing Sorbet, quickly go in with the Bitter Green Essence Toner. This concentrated pore-minimizing formula is packed with a powerful proprietary blend of 33 different antioxidant-rich greens. This potent green complex contains a detoxifying combo of artichoke, broccoli, and matcha green tea to hydrate and clarify effectively smoothing unwanted texture and protecting skin from dehydration. All you have to do is shake a small amount into the palm of your hands (alternatively, you can sweep it on with a reusable cotton round) and gently pat onto face and neck until fully absorbed. Simple as that for healthy, hydrated skin!

LAYER UP

The weather is getting warmer and the last thing we want to do is layer on heavy, suffocating moisturizers. A great alternative is to double up on your toner for an extra dose of hydration so you can go in with a much lighter weight moisturizer. Don’t go too overboard though! All you need to do is pat in a few drops of toner, let it absorb into the skin, and then go in with another few drops. Avoid adding too many layers as too much of a good thing isn’t always the best.

PRO TIP: Pop your toner in the fridge overnight and wake up to a refreshing, cooling, and ultra-soothing dose of moisture. One of our customers gave us this idea and we have been absolutely obsessed every since.
