  1. A travel-size, clear bottle filled with luminous, cream-coloured watery toner with a silver-coloured lid.

    Step 1: Minimise Pores with Glow Toner

    The first step in your quick skincare routine is Charlotte’s Glow Toner – a daily radiant glow solution that helps to reduce the appearance of pores. Apply the hydrating formula with your fingertips or a cotton pad, gently pressing it into the skin to let niacinamide and acid-free exfoliants work their magic. Getting off to a gleaming start, your skin is left feeling baby-soft and ready for the rest of your routine.

The supercharged formula is rich in golden vitamin C and polyglutamic acid to nourish the skin with a rush of hydration for a brighter-looking complexion. Massage the moisturising elixir into your complexion and, as if by magic, skin appears more youthful and feels satin-smooth.
