Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Balancing Toner [Review]

Jul 10, 2016 | Beauty & Fashion | 26 comments


Hello dearies! Welcome to another product review! So after using this for months, I can finally share my thoughts about Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Balancing Toner. I got this for 7.21usd (320php+) at Puregold Duty Free in Subic last November. Besides Duty Free, you can also find this brand at any Healthy Options branches near you. Its “Vitamin C renewal” made me decide to get this since I have dark spots and uneven skin tone that I want to lighten. Did it work? Just keep reading. 🙂


It contains organic ingredients and formulated without synthetic fragrances and harsh sulfates nor parabens.  I became more interested in organic products because some studies show that parabens, phthalates et al (that you can find in commercial products) can cause breast cancer if reached the certain exposure level which is really scary. The container is also made of 100% recycled material which is environment-friendly. Let us help Mother Nature!


It claims to balances, restores even tone and provides photo-aging defense. It also rebalances the skin’s moisture levels and targeting areas of hyperpigmentation with the help of aloe, cucumber, and papaya extract ingredients. Plant-derived Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant and cell energizer, helps eliminate free radical damage caused by daily sun exposure to help fight the visible signs of photo-aging.

It has 251ml (8.5 fl oz) of product which is bigger from a usual toner. I appreciate the “summary” on the front label rather than reading the whole details at the back. On the side note, for liquid products I prefer the twist off cap over “press” cap to avoid spillage. Furthermore, I’m not a fan of its fragrance which is a sweet citrus scent, and for me, it’s like an overripe orange fruit but tolerable. (I don’t know, I’ve noticed my sense of smell became more sensitive after I gave birth. Ugh) 

To use, after cleansing, dampen a cotton ball with toner and gently sweep over the face and neck. It leaves my skin a bit sticky and takes a minute or two to fully absorbed by the skin. Given my acne-prone skin, I never expected that this toner will help clear and control my breakouts but I noticed my scars doesn’t stay long on my face. I still breakout (one or two pimples) once in a while but I am glad that this toner helps to heal and lightens my scars in few weeks time. 

To conclude, I do not recommend this for combination skin / acne-prone skin but only for people who concerns about hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. 

Will I repurchase it? No. I’ve had enough of this.

What is your favorite toner?

    Too bad this didn't work out well for you! I'm in love with Neal's Yard Remedies Frankincense toner. It is one of the best I've ever tried.

  2. Azlin Bloor

    I love all the plant extracts in the mix. It must taste heavenly, besides being good for you!

  3. Melanie Smith

    I agree with you, this is not really good. I can recommend you my favorite, it is Garnier pure active mattifying toner. It is awesome! You would love it.

  4. Amy Jones

    This looks like a great product. Skin health is totally important

  5. Angie Church

    well if we did not try then we would never know what worked and what did not so keep trying and sharing

  6. Jasmine Eclipse

    I haven't heard of this product or brand before, but I do like that it is organic and paraben free. Those are things that I have become more aware of over the past few months too!

    I personally love sweet citrus scents but I have very sensitive skin so it might not be ideal for me either.

  8. Mai C.

    I don't really use toners, but I sure am sorry you had to experience this. Too bad, 'cause it sounded promising!

    Nice review. And i thought i might just consider this; good thing though youve mentioned about sticky feeling and not recommending for combination and acne prone skin. Thanks.

  10. Life With Kathy

    That's to bad that it didn't go to well with this. I would have loved to see it actually work. I personally probably would have loved the scent.

  11. Christine Tatum

    Thank you for your honest opinion. I have used some of Avalon products – but not this one. I use DeVita for most skin care products. I love it!

  12. Liz Mays

    It takes a lot of trial and error to find the products that work best for us, right? I appreciate your honesty!

  13. Ron Leyba

    Sounds like a good product to try. Amazing indeed.

  14. Tita in Wandergrounds

    I'm prone to acne so I don't get to enjoy testing out products in the market. I did once but it only made my skin worst. Hence, I'm sticking up to doctor-recommended products or non-comedogenic ones.

  15. Xoneia Tayag

    I think it's great because it makes use of organic ingredients, which means it's perfect for sensitive skin! The scent is something that I prefer over florals, so I don't really mind it.

  16. Author TP Keane

    I'm not one for a toner that says it will lighten your skin. Something that powerful cant be good for you. Sorry this one didn't work out for you.

  17. Eileen

    Thank you for your honest review. It is just right that we read the labels. I have always used Neutrogena products and they work best for my skin. Don't take my word for it though, because everyone has different skin types and may not have the same results. Better to try a small bottle first.

  18. Echo A

    I have never heard of skin tone lightener until recently! I had no idea it was so popular!

  19. Victoria Heckstall

    I love using toners and this one sounds amazing and I love the good benefits.

  20. Glenda·K Blogger

    I love the benefits this products have. Also the fruity scent won't effect fragrance allergies. 🙂

  21. Enricoh Alfonzo Naidu

    it's always great to see someone so knowledgeable on a topic. skin health is very important and i like that this product has organic ingredients.

  22. Becca Wilson

    Trial and error is all that we can do. I agree that there are certain products for those with acne prone skin that just don't work.

  23. Cheap Is The *New* Classy

    Well, thanks for the honest review. I personally don't use products like this so there isn't much of a chance of me buying it anyhow.

  24. Fan R.

    I do not use toner right now, but would love to get one. Looks like great product and it fights aging signs, so I am in.

  25. LifeAsAConvert

    Yikes! I don't have either of those problems, so I guess I will steer away from this product, but the citrus/refreshing feeling almost tempts me to get it.
