Hydrating Conditioner with Floral Waters
Refresh and clarify your skin with the Medik8 Balancing Toner, specially formulated to balance your skin’s pH levels and contribute to a clearer complexion. It sweeps away any remaining impurities after cleansing without dehydrating alcohol or severe exfoliating acids.
Supplemented with soothing extracts, such as allantoin and aloe vera, this gentle Medik8 Toner comforts and hydrates your skin, with prebiotics to strengthen your natural skin barrier. Not only does it balance and re-hydrate, but it also refines pores and has anti-bacterial benefits.
Natural astringent witch hazel is less harsh than exfoliating acids, which makes this product ideal if you’re unable to use AHAs, BHAs, or even PHAs. The Medik8 Daily Refresh Balancing Toner is suitable for even the most sensitive skin, and available to buy now from The Skin Clinic Direct.
What are the benefits of Daily Refresh Balancing Toner?
This gentle Medik8 Toner cleanses and conditions your skin, removing excess oil while restoring the natural pH balance. With a light natural scent of rosewater, aloe vera, and witch hazel, these extracts work together in the formula to purge and tighten pores without inflammation or discomfort.
Its medicinal properties make this Medik8 Toner the perfect choice for compromised skin, as it soothes, hydrates, and supports skin barrier functions to encourage faster healing. Meaning you can tone your skin comfortably without worrying about unpleasant stinging or redness.
The hydration-enhancing elements of Medik8 Daily Refresh Balancing Toner help to soften the skin surface, making it look and feel both smoother and plumper. It prepares your skin for prime absorption of follow-up products, making sure you get the most out of every step in your skincare routine.
How does Daily Refresh Toner work?
This Medik8 Toner is pH-balanced to carefully restore the natural equilibrium of your skin. While witch hazel is known to be an astringent, this toner uses extract from the tree leaves rather than the bark, which contains more active components than the leaves. This means it can cleanse and tighten your pores without being too harsh on your skin.
It’s also antibacterial and antimicrobial, boosting the soothing and wound-healing properties of allantoin (found naturally in the comfrey plant). Together, they soften the skin and protect it against environmental damage. These activities are further boosted by aloe vera extract, a popular natural moisturiser and anti-inflammatory ingredient.
Medik8 Balancing Toner also contains a type of Vitamin B3 (niacinamide), which is an anti-inflammatory that reduces discolouration, improves cell communication, and brightens the skin. It’s especially effective for targeting acne. To help maintain your skin’s microbiome, it also contains prebiotics from natural sugars found in plants, including alpha-glucan oligosaccharide, beta-glucan, and inulin.
Altogether, you have a nourishing formula that simultaneously softens and strengthens your skin, fighting back against bad bacteria and inflammation while encouraging faster skin cell turnover to resurface your complexion. Everything you want in a toning skincare product.

Medik8 Balancing Toner FAQs
Medik8 Daily Refresh Balancing Toner is free from alcohol and excessive astringents or exfoliants, so it can do the job of a toner while being gentle and kind to your skin. It contains moisturising and calming ingredients that also boost the natural defence mechanisms in your skin.
This results in a clearly refined complexion with softer, smoother, and healthier skin – without inflammation, redness, or soreness from stinging or tingling. Some astringent toners strip natural oils from the skin, but this toner actively restores its pH balance.
Gentle toners with soothing components like this Medik8 Toner are ideal for compromised skin – for example, after hair removal, skin peels, or laser treatments. You should avoid other toners with alcohol, Vitamin C, or Vitamin A following these treatments, as they can cause irritation and dryness.
Niacinamide is a water-soluble form of Vitamin B3 that improves hydration and skin protection. It’s tolerable for the majority of skin types, making it safe to use every day, and can target a variety of skin problems. It reduces oiliness, redness, and sensitivity for clear and calm skin.
It also stimulates the production of ceramides, a type of fat cell within the skin barrier, which thickens the barrier to help minimise water loss and defend your skin against environmental damage. Niacinamide is compatible with most other active ingredients in skincare.
You may have heard bad things about niacinamide before, from those who believe it causes irritation and redness rather than fighting against it. This is because irritation can occur when using niacinamide products at the same time as Vitamin C or retinol products – but it’s not because of the niacinamide itself. If you do use such products, use them separately at different times of day.
A toner is a specially formulated liquid that removes leftover makeup, dirt, and excessive oil that remains in the skin after washing your face. It’s an in-between step that many consider to be optional, but it’s an invaluable addition to any skin cleansing routine.
Medik8 Toner is like a fast-acting watery serum – it quickly cleans, balances, and tightens pores to leave your skin feeling supple and soft. Not only does it feel wonderfully refreshing, but it also gets your skin into the best possible state for absorbing moisturising creams or other skin treatments.
In a typical skin cleansing routine, you should exfoliate, cleanse, tone, and then moisturise. You can follow with sunscreen and makeup or night serums as applicable. You should apply Medik8 Toner to your skin within a minute of cleansing, while your skin is still wet, to ensure the best results.
How to Apply+
If you’re new to this Medik8 Toner or any of the ingredients it contains, please conduct a patch test before applying it properly. See how it affects a small area of your skin, and if there are no adverse reactions, you can continue to use the product as follows:
1) Cleanse your face completely in the morning and evening.
2) Apply a few drops of the toner to a pad or to the palms of your hands if you prefer.
3) Gently wipe the product across the skin of your face and neck using outward circular motions.
4) Follow with a moisturiser and serum to achieve the best results.
The Medik8 Toner will maximise the activity of any cream or treatment you use afterwards. Use it daily every time you cleanse for faster results.
