Geek & Gorgeous Liquid Hydration
Geek & Gorgeous Liquid Hydration is a silky facial toner with 5% Panthenol + Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) to hydrate and soothe all skin types.
Why We Love It
This toner is packed with skin barrier supportive ingredients but lightweight enough for your serums and treatments to be absorbed. It can be paired with any active ingredients to make things easy!
Panthenol, or pro-vitamin B5 is a well-established moisturizer known not only to hydrate the skin, but to also have powerful skin soothing, barrier strengthening and wound healing properties. This formula combines 5% Panthenol with Allantoin and NMF components to further increase both the hydrating and the soothing abilities of the toner.
We especially recommend Liquid Hydration, if your skin prefers multiple, light hydrating layers, is prone to dehydration, or is sensitive, or you are using strong actives (e.g. anti-acne such as benzoyl peroxide or anti-aging such as tretinoin) known to dry the skin or compromise the skin barrier.
After cleansing, apply toner morning and/or evening. If you also use a liquid exfoliant (such as Smooth Out, Cheer Up or Calm Down), we recommend to start with the exfoliant and follow with the toner. If you use C-Glow with Liquid Hydration, we recommend to start with C-Glow and follow with Liquid Hydration.
