Claims: Exfoliating Toner | Glycolic Acid, Rosehip, and Vitamin E | Helps with Dry, Dull Skin | All Skin Types | Cruelty Free
Size: 6 oz.
I’ve been testing out toners quite a bit lately. Testing them against each other and testing to see if they actually do anything. Last week I reviewed the Pixi Glow Tonic, read that review here, which is an exfoliating toner with 5% glycolic acid. This week I’m talking about the Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner and telling you what exactly it is, what it’s supposed to do, and if it actually works. For my thoughts, just keep scrolling!
About Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner
The Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner is another exfoliating toner, which means that while it does the base things a toner is supposed to do (regulate the skin’s pH after cleansing and remove any dirt or makeup left behind) it will also exfoliate the skin. An exfoliating toner can be a good way to condense steps and combine exfoliating with toning, however, you may still want to do a strong exfoliation every once in awhile if you have dry skin or wear a lot of beauty products. An exfoliating toner can also be a good way for someone with sensitive or dry skin to exfoliate more often. I usually can only use “normal” exfoliators once-a-week due to the fact that they strip my skin, however, with an exfoliating toner I can do slight exfoliation each day!
The Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner also has glycolic acid in it, like the Pixi Glow Tonic, however, the Derma E toner also contains botanicals like Rosehip. Why is this important? While the glycolic acid is removing the dead skin, the botanicals come in and revive the skin leaving the complexion radiant. Another thing to note about the Derma E toner is that it’s a flip-top pour-out toner. This means that you can pour the amount of product you need onto fabric or a cotton pad and not have to much or to little!

Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner Review
I used the Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner exclusively for several weeks. I applied it to a cotton pad and wiped around my face after my cleanser and before my serum in the mornings. I found that the Derma E toner actually did a great job of picking up left over makeup, dirt, and other residue and it left my skin feeling more normal than most other toners. As for the exfoliating properties, I couldn’t tell that the Derma E was exfoliating upon application due to the fact that it didn’t dry out on the cotton pad as fast as other tones and therefore didn’t have the drag that others do. That being said, I could tell after the fact that it was actually pulling dead skin from my face, especially around the areas where I have eczema patches. The radiance part might be my favorite part of the Derma E toner, before applying my serum and moisturizers I could already see that my skin had a glow to it that wasn’t from the added oils that were incoming! I will say though that there is a slight rose scent (due to the rosehips) that can linger for a few minutes so if you’re not a rose fan you may want to skip. However, I usually HATE the scent of roses and it didn’t bother me in the slightest.
Final Thoughts on the Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner
Overall I really enjoyed the Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner. It did what it claimed it would do and left my skin looking amazing in the process. I would suggest that if you’re looking for a toner, looking to combine steps in your skin care routine, or are looking to try toners out to see if they actually do anything then you check out this Derma E toner! For myself, this has become my go to toner and I will be repurchasing!

I feel bad that I have never used a toner, and I don’t treat my skin as I should. You have shown me so many good products so I will keep them in mind.
Terri Steffes says
I need a good toner. I always forget how much it helps with your skin’s natural balance. Thanks for the reminder!

I think it’s amazing that you’re sharing your experience with different toners. I want to know which ones work and which ones aren’t worth it. I think this sounds awesome and it’s definitely going to help you take better care of your skin.

I just learn about this product just now. It is great that it works on you. I would not hesitate also to try. The good thing about reading blogs is you’ll have the reviews you need.

I’ve never even heard of an exfoliating toner. Very interesting. I use a toner nightly. It seems that my face wash doesn’t do the greatest of jobs, and a toner seems to help clean away what was left behind.
I don’t often use toner. This sounds like a great brand to try. Thank you for telling me about it!
this toner looks awesome! I’ve heard such good things but have yet to try one. I might buy this one!
I have heard about radiance toners or glow toners a lot lately. It makes sense that they would have glycolic acid in them.
I’ve actually been looking for a new toner. It’s so important to restore your skin’s PH level after cleansing. I really need to check this out.
Kelly Hutchinson says
I would definitely buy the Derma E Essentials Radiance Toner. I love the idea of an exfoliating toner!
Blythe Alpern says
I tried this toner recently as well and really liked it. I use it as part of the 6-step toner process, where I pat the toner on my face 6 times. It really does help my dry skin.
Cindy Ingalls says
I’m a big fan of Derma-E. I love how well their products work and that fact that they are made from really great ingredients.
Tiffany Haywood says
I always need a good exfoliator especially during the winter months. I will have to look into this a bit more. Thanks for sharing!
Angela Ricardo Bethea says
Never heard of this product before but it sounds like a great product. You only find a good toner once in a while, I’d love to try this someday.
I have never used a toner before. I will have to do som research because I will be honest I never really heard of them before I’ve heard great things about this brand though!
LaToyia Dennis says
Radiance toner….sounds like something I need. I have the hardest time finding the right products for my skin.
I don’t use a toner at all but realize I should. This sounds like a great product and something I definitely should be incorporating in my daily routine!
Toners are something that I definitely use. This one looks like it would be great to try.
Amber Nelson says
Oh, an exfoliating toner??? Yes, please! I am a huge fan of exfoliation!
