Affordable Acid Toning

I think we can put the increasing hype around acid toners down to Caroline Hirons, who regularly shares her love for them on her blog and YouTube channel. One of the more budget-friendly options  Caroline recommended in the past are the Clearasil Daily Clear Superfruits Refreshing Pads. I've bought maybe 3 or 4 tubs of this in the past year or so and absolutely love them...the only problem being they are becoming harder and harder to get hold of! I bought mine from Amazon for around a very purse-friendly £4 each time, but I can't find them for less than £39 now! Very frustrating. So I thought I'd share some other budget-friendly acid toners that I've discovered, in case you're struggling to find some yourself.

When I finished the last tub I had of the Clearasil Superfruits pads, I decided to pick up a similar product from that I found in my local Sainsburys and can only assume is Clearasil's new version of the same product: the Ultra 5in1 Cleansing Pads. These pads are pretty strong and have a fairly rough texture, so they leave your skin feeling thoroughly clean and refreshed. Maybe not the best option for acid-toner newbies but if, like me, you're a fan of acid toning and like pads that feel as if they're really working, you'll love these.

My other two affordable options come from Nip & Fab. They have a few different acid toners, including the Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Pads. The texture of these pads is a lot flimsier, lighter and more comfortable to use than the Clearasil pads and they also feel a little less stingy and intense on the skin. The Dragon's Blood pads are also thin but feel more loaded with product, although they feel more 'cleansing' rather than 'toning' on the skin, making them a better option for those with more sensitive skin. Keep an eye out for these in Superdrug and Boots as they are often on offer - it is worth waiting for the discount to make them even more affordable.

Please bear in mind I'm not a skincare expert and most of the products I've linked in this post haven't actually been recommended by Caroline herself, but if you're like me and on a real budget I'd definitely recommend giving them a try based on my own personal experience. If you have slightly more cash to splash, or would like some acid toner suggestions to add to your Christmas list, then I'd suggest the Pixie Glow Tonic or First Aid Beauty Pads as they are cult favourites.

Do you use acid toners? Please let me know your favourites as I'm always trying to switch up my skincare! Tweet me or leave a comment below so that I can get back to you!
