Toner but so much better

Perfume free.

97,5%  natural origin ingredients.


Reset your skin with the Gallinée Face Vinegar

The Face Vinegar acts as a pivot between what you remove from the skin surface when you cleanse and what you replenish it with afterwards.

The Face Vinegar contains Actibiome, a novel prebiotic that works to calm stressed skin and prevent it from further irritations alongside postbiotics that allow the skin’s beneficial bacteria to flourish. The second active is the Hibiscus Vinegar. Extracted from the Hibiscus flower that’s native to Central America, the vinegar improves skin in three distinct ways:

  1. Purification

Rich in acetic acid, with astringent properties, to gently dislodge dirt and unhealthy bacteria. Another important ingredient is tannins, which has been found to regulate sebum.


  1. Protection

Full of antioxidants that help stop free radicals from attacking and degrading skin cells. Oxidative stress is reduced so skin can remain protected from external ageing factors.


  1. Proliferation

A recognised AHA (alpha hydroxyacid), the gentle exfoliating action stimulates cell renewal for a smoother, refined finish. It also helps minimise the appearance of blemish scarring.


Key Ingredients

HIBISCUS VINEGAR: Known for its astringent, exfoliating and soothing properties.

ALGAE PREBIOTICS: A brand new ingredient using extracts from green and brown algae, sea water and marine polysaccharides. Together they act against signs of stress on the skin.

PREBIOTICS: A mix of ultra-gentle fibres and sugars that feed your skin’s good bacteria and help support the skin’s barrier, with an antibacterial action against bad ones.

LACTIC ACID: The gentlest of AHAs, lactic acid helps the skin to stay at its optimal pH level and has hydrating and softening properties. Gallinée uses a slow-release form to suit even sensitive skin.

PHYSIOLOGICAL PH: All Gallinée products are made to match the optimal pH of the skin and the microbiome.

WITHOUT: Doesn’t contain soap, colourants, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, microbeads, phenoxyethanol or methylisothiazolinone.


Gallinée’s Face Vinegar acts like a toner. Once any unhealthy bacteria has been cleansed away, this purifies and eliminates dead skin cells that could inhibit the absorption of the extra ingredients and healthy bacteria about to be left on skin from serums and creams.


To be used morning and night, soak a cotton pad in the vinegar and swipe across cleansed skin, avoiding the eyes. Follow with Gallinée Youthful Serum or Hydrating Face Cream.

    J’ ai acheté le coffret visage pour tester et je suis très agréablement surprise. Les soins sont très doux, ma peau ne tiraille plus après la douche. Je trouve mon teint plus lumineux et ma peau plus nette. Les odeurs du vinaigre et de la crème sont discretes. Je pense tester prochainement le pain de savon pour ma fille qui a la peau très sèche.
    J’en profite pour ajouter que le service client est très réactif; merci.

    J’ai eu un peu de mal avec l’odeur au début, mais on s’y fait assez rapidement. J’avais peur que ce produit soit agressif, asséchant pour ma peau qui réagit très vite mais rien de tout cela. Ce vinaigre est vraiment bien après le démaquillage. Ma peau vous remercie.

    This toner has helped my face color even out! My face has never looked this good!

    I was so looking forward to another Gallinee product after the other skincare products have been working well for me but this was really disappointing. I broke out in spots and I initially thought it was my skin just reacting to using something different but after a couple of months use I had to stop using it. Needless to say since doing so my skin has gone back to normal. A shame to have wasted my money, but the rest of the Gallinee face products are amazing!

    Gentle and Refreshing Toner
    I like that this product is gentle on my skin and it doesn’t dry out my skin.

  6. Amber

    I have rosacea and this was recommended to me. So far it doesn’t dry my skin or cause redness. The smell is a little strong, but other than that I’m very pleased.

  7. Solène

    Super produit ! Frais, apaisant après le nettoyage de la peau, une odeur agréable, efficace (pores resserrés, teint frais et homogène), bonne contenance (200ml). Un produit à recommander !

    Wonderful toner
    love this but says to keep in a dark place. Why won’t they do an opaque bottle? Since I Have to keep it in a drawer I keep forgetting to use it. The clear bottle makes everything look really pretty but that’s only good for marketing purposes -I would rather it be an open take a bottle so it lasts better and I can keep it on my vanity

    I received the face vinegar as part of the Happy Bacteria Set and it has been by far my favourite product from the box and my go-to toner. It has no alcohol but it manages to keep my oily and highly sensitive skin shine free. I will buy it again!

    un peu surprise au départ par l’odeur particulière, mais qui en fait s’estompe très vite et n’est pas désagréable. J’ai la peau très réactive et je suis pour l’instant un peu dubitative concernant le vinaigre qui a tendance à provoquer quelques rougeurs. Mais je ne l’utilise que depuis 1 semaine, donc à voir à plus long terme, il faut peut-être le temps que ma peau s’habitue à ce nouveau “traitement”.

  11. Lili

    I love it! I use it after cleaning my skin with micellar lotion.
    Smell and texture are great. Not too corrosive which is what I was worried of at first sight.
    Will definitely buy it again !

    Un produit qui tient ses promesses! Un parfum léger, une très jolie couleur et ma peau est beaucoup plus lumineuse.

  13. Anne Rutigliano

    Superbe ce vinaigre d’hibiscus! Il apaise vraiment ma peau et notamment les joues qui sont atteintes de rosacee.
    Les joues sont moins rouges, les pores resserrés juste après l’application. Ce fut une agréable découverte, qui l’eut de la part d’un vinaigre ! Merci Marie, merci Gallinee !

  14. fabiennemamich

    J’ai testé ce produit suite à ma commande d’un coffret : un peu septique car le nom « vinaigre » ne me donnait pas envie…
    Son utilisation m’a convaincue : parfum léger de fleurs, il ne dessèche pas la peau et permet un démaquillage parfait ! Je le recommande le soir sur le visage après avoir utilisé la mousse !

    I have never used toners and am wary of using more products than necessary on my sensitive skin. However, this product is very pleasant to use and feels soothing. Also, I find it seems to make application of the face cream easier. Will definitely add it to my daily routine.

    I’ve been using the face vinegar now for nearly 3 weeks and already see a noticeable difference in the look and feel of my skin. My skin feels cleaner and smoother, and it looks fresher with fewer areas of redness. With sensitive skin I’ve always been cautious of new products, especially toners which have stung at tines. Not with the face vinegar though, it feels gentle yet effective!
