Youth to the People is a wonderful clean beauty brand. I had great luck with the Youth to the People Superfood Facial Cleanser and The Glow Dream Mask. So, I’m super excited to try the new Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner $38.  Like all Youth to the People products, this is cruelty-free, vegan and comes in recyclable packaging. 

This exfoliating toner smooths, minimizes the appearance of pores, and firms the look of skin with a blend of 8% lactic acid and 3% glycolic acid. Both of those ingredients are great for aging skin and just what I’ve been looking for!

The proprietary Kombucha blend includes Kombucha Black Tea Ferment, Tree Bark Ferment, Ginger, Lactic Acid + Glycolic Acid, Citrus Bioflavonoids, and Lemon Water Extract. These ingredients work together to smooth, tone, minimize pores and firm the skin. Within days I noticed a brighter tone to my skin and I think after 2 weeks I’m noticing a bit of firming too. I’m looking forward to my brown spots fading with continued use. Whohoo!

You’ll see right away this toner is not like others–it has a thicker almost gel-like texture. If you’re not used to using AHA’s, you might experience tingling or stinging, it’s not an issue for me since I use AHA’s regularly.

I was sure that using this strong of a product was going to dry out my skin, but it hasn’t at all. I don’t think I’ve ever had a toner that cleaned this deeply! I’ve been using 3 times a week in my nighttime routine and will probably work up to every night. My only complaint is that it leaves my skin feeling slightly sticky, although it goes away after a few hours. Using it at night avoids this being an issue.

Bottom Line: the Youth to the People Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner is highly effective, you’ll notice a difference in a matter of days! It has definitely become my Holy Grail Toner and helps me with my 2 worst skin issues, large pores and dull skin. Great product!!
