Benton PHA peeling toner

This time Benton launched the 3% PHA peeling toner. The toner is supposed to hydrate the skin and make it smooth. That’s all thanks to the very gentle exfoliation provided by the lactobionic acid.


As you may have seen, some time ago I wrote a review of the Benton Cosmetic PHA peeling gel, which was pretty good for my skin.


Benton – PHA peeling toner – What is PHA?

Poly Hydroxy Acids are a new generation of the well known AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids). Most important, comparing to the AHAs, the PHAs do not increase the skin sensitivity to the sun. More than that, the PHAs are well known because of their moisturizing properties – the PHAs attract water molecules and are rich in antioxidants. 


Benton – PHA peeling toner ingredients

The key ingredients of Benton’s PHA toner are:

  • sodium hyaluronate – absorbing moisture and hydrates the skin


  • sodium PCA – known as natural moisturizing factor with 50% improved moisturizing abilities comparing to the glycerine 


  • centaurea cyanus and chrysanthemum morifolium flower extracts – filled with vitamins A, B1, and adenine – has anti-inflammatory properties, helps with reducing facial blushing and heals fungal acne


  • third-generation PHA – lactobionic acid – gently melts dead skin

 Benton – PHA peeling toner – My thoughts

Benton is recommending to use it 2-3 x per week but I am using it almost every day. I like how good my skin feels right after use. Pores are minimized, the skin gets a fresh, bright, luminous and glowy look.

The toner is leaving the face moisturized, and calm. Further, it does not cause any irritations and I haven’t noticed any unpleasant tightening effect. Also, the blackheads and clogged pores are gone! 

In fact, my skin is dull in colour and oily in the T-zone. To be honest, I was struggling with finding a perfect toner, and the Benton’s PHA toner matches all of my expectations so I’ll stick with this one for a while!

Moreover – in combination with the PHA peeling gel the toner works miracles. This combo helps me to reduce sebum production a lot.

To sum up – big yay for this one!
