arcona triad toner pads review, toner for acne, toner for combination skin


Double the goodness and ultimately my favorite purchase from the not-so-recent Nordstrom anniversary sale, oh yeah I’m talking about Arcona Triad Toner Pads Duo which I snagged for only $48 (retail value $70)!

arcona triad toner pads review, gentle toner, toner for combination and acne skin

But besides the amazing deal (still available at Nordstrom website), I am beyond  pleased with this toner because it is one of the gentlest I have tried in recent years. Just look at the short list of ingredients:

Agua (Distilled Water), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Rice Milk, Sodium Lactate, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis (White Tea) Extract, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, D-alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citric Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Essential Oils.

While some of you may refute the idea of toner in a jar with pre-soaked pads (45 pads per jar), I actually like the concept out of sheer convenience. The pads are thinner and richly soaked with each use. I find that one pad is enough to cover my face and neck, a ritual I so enjoy after washing my face. It is also moisturizing, another unique aspect of this toner. Scent is relative but I find the cranberry quite on the powdery side. With that said, it’s strong but not enough to induce headache, thank goodness!

Bottom line, it’s worth repurchasing!

have you tried this brand?

    I haven't tried this, but I am also about the convenience. I actually prefer spray toners that I don't even need a cotton pad for, though I suspect it doesn't help as much with makeup residue removal. They are good for helping with the absorption of serums, though.

    I like the idea of toner in the pad form. It think it would be easier to deal with and prevent me from spilling product.

    I used to use Glycolic and Retinol pads and I loved them because they are so simple to use. These from Arcona sound great and gentle

    I hear great things about Arcona! I love the idea of toner on the little pads, anything that saves me time heh

    Pre-soaked toner! Now, I could get on board with that!! The one I use currently is a spray, and I feel like it must evaporate before it even gets to my face.

    I haven't tried pad toners, what a cool concept!

    I love the container, so pretty! The formula sounds perfect for my skin type, I'll be sure to pick some up during my next Nordies haul!

    I like the presoaked idea! I don't normally use toner though.

  9. August 15, 2015 / 2:34 am

    I've used pads from other companies and loved the way my skin reacted to them.

  10. August 15, 2015 / 3:10 am

    These sound so good, I've used the Somme pads before with success.

  11. August 15, 2015 / 3:44 am

    I live and die for toner. I would totally use these!

  12. August 15, 2015 / 1:31 pm

    I actually like that they are easy to use pads! In the never ending skincare routine, it's nice to have something easy.

  13. August 15, 2015 / 6:47 pm

    I haven't tried a toner in this form but sounds great

  14. August 16, 2015 / 1:12 am

    I love your pics here. I have tried Arcona's toner and loved it!

  15. August 16, 2015 / 1:51 am

    I feel like this would be great for travel, no dealing with toner in bottles that may spill!

  16. August 16, 2015 / 7:46 am

    Well, these sound pretty much perfect! I love the idea of pre-soaked toner.

  17. August 17, 2015 / 5:52 am

    I have been hearing a lot of great things about this brand and I definitely think this is a great thing. I used to use a Toner back in the day that was in pad form and loved it. I would enjoy this.

    Thanks for reminding me about Arcona! I used to adore their cranberry toner (I think it was called?) back in the day, and bought it by buckets 🙂 Looks like I need to check them out again.
