Description

Reset your skin with the Gallinée Face Vinegar

Now in Spray! A new gesture to reset your skin. Perfect to soothe & tone on the go.
Unscrew the capsule of your Face Vinegar and replace it with your limited edition spray. Close eyes & mouth and spray directly onto your face & neck. No cotton pad needed! Keep your spray for your next bottle.

The best toner for sensitive skin and for oily skin, it purifies and tones without stripping the skin. The Face Vinegar contains Actibiome, a novel prebiotic that works to calm stressed skin and prevent it from further irritations alongside gentle postbiotic acids that allow the skin’s beneficial bacteria to flourish. The second active is the Hibiscus-infused Apple Cider Vinegar. This toning ingredient 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.

2.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.

3.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.

Marie’s word, founder of Gallinée:
“The toner that started a trend. I love our Face Vinegar because it looks and feels so light but does so much! And also because we have two patents on it, it’s quite a high tech for a toner.
I use it on a cotton pad at night, after cleansing, and I just splash it on my face in the morning, great for waking up the skin. A multi-tasking wonder, and the best toner ever for sensitive skin”

Key Ingredients

HIBISCUS APPLE CIDER 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.

Usage

To be used morning and night. Drop the face vinegar on a cotton pad or directly on your fingers, and swipe across, dry cleansed skin, avoiding the eyes. Follow with Gallinée Youthful Serum or Hydrating Face Cream.

Face Vinegar in Spray! Unscrew the capsule of your Face Vinegar and replace it with your limited edition spray. Close eyes & mouth and spray directly onto your face & neck. No cotton pad needed! Keep your spray for your next bottle.

RESULT: Our Face Vinegar acts like a toner. Once any bad 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 the skin from serums and creams.

I am so so glad I found this!! I have combo/normal skin , but am prone to hormonal acne on my chin - wearing masks all day doesn’t help. This toner has contributed to clearing my acne and my skin tone so that I don’t need concealer to cover the post acne marks !

It took me time to apreciate this product (I'm talking about Face Vinegar) but now I couldn't do without it. It's the first step of my routine in the morning (I don't wash my face on morning), it gently freshens up my skin and prepares it for the next steps of skincare.

My skin was unbalanced, suffering from texture, dryness, and sensitivity due to using expensive products with strong active ingredients (Augustinus Bader's The Cream, Biologique Recherche P5). It was a terrible experience to look in the mirror, and I decided that it was time for a reset. While the sensitivity eased up after not using the other products, the texture and dryness still persisted. On a whim and inspired by an empties video by Estee Lalonde, I decided to buy this toner, the serum, and the facial scrub. I can confidently say that it's transformed my skin and restored the health to my ailing skin barrier. Soft, smooth, buoyant, no texture! I hope that Gallinee never goes out of business.

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.

Read moreI 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.

    Gentle 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.

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 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 !

Read moreI'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!

Is apple cider vinegar good for acne?

When incorporated regularly into your skincare routine, Apple Cider Vinegar will help prevent the build-up of blemishes, imperfections and yes… acne.
It removes excess sebum, thus reducing the blockages that could turn into spots. It has a purifying action that helps rid your skin of bad bacteria and it lowers the skin’s pH (acne sufferers tend to have a higher pH, so ACV can help balance this out).
In our Gallinée Face Vinegar Toner, we use ACV infused with hibiscus, at the perfect concentration to defend against breakouts.

Is apple cider vinegar recommended for sensitive skin?

Apple Cider Vinegar can certainly have benefits for sensitive skin, in that it has anti-inflammatory properties that will help reduce irritation or reactions.
However, sensitive skin is going to be more vulnerable to potential harm from over-use of acidic vinegars, particular if diluted insufficiently. We, therefore, recommend that, if you are looking to use ACV on sensitive skin, that you use a product that has been specially formulated and proven for your skin type.
We are proud that Our Face Vinegar has two patents to this effect, one of which is especially for sensitive skin types and helping to prevent redness. The other patent is problem skins because of how it purifies and has an astringent effect. It also enhances skin appearance by smoothing it and making it glow.

Does vinegar kill bacteria on skin?

The clever thing about incorporating Apple Cider Vinegar into your skincare routine is that it can be remarkably selective with which bacteria it will kill and the ones it has to keep. Your skin’s microbiome is very diverse, with both harmful and helpful bacteria calling it home.
Using ACV – especially a specially formulated vinegar toner – helps to eliminate the bad bacteria, whilst leaving the good bacteria (which we then recommend nourishing with a Hydrating Face Cream). Lactic acid works in the same way, which is why our Face Vinegar works so well on sensitive and problem skins.

Does vinegar help shrink dilated pores?

Apple cider vinegar, when used regularly as part of a toner, can help to tighten and shrink the appearance of pores on your skin. This is because it soothes the skin and has an astringent effect on the pores. It helps regulate the sebum and – by doing so – makes pores appear tightened, smaller and less blocked-up. Dilated pores can be caused by:

  • Excessive sebum: this is when a person’s sebaceous gland produces a lot of oil (oily skin).
  • Decreased elasticity around the pore: the skin becomes less supple, and pores appear enlarged.
  • Increased hair follicle volume: the pore at the end of the hair follicle becomes clogged.
  • When oil collects in the pore and combines with dirt or makeup, the pore can become blocked. This stretches the pore, making it look bigger than it is. If the pore remains clogged, breakouts may develop.

How often should I use the Gallinée Face Vinegar Toner?

The Face Vinegar can be used as a toner applying it on a cotton disk in the morning and/or at night before using your hydrating cream or oil. You can also splash it on your face every morning for an immediate good-looking effect.

How does the Face Vinegar smell?

Unsurprisingly, the Face Vinegar has a definite smell of vinegar, but not nearly as strong as you would get if you sniffed your standard kitchen vinegar. The smell is also only very short-lived too, especially once you continue with the next steps in your skincare routine – so don’t worry about anyone noticing when you’re out and about!

“5 stars – A great product! Smells a tiny bit vinegary but only for about 5 seconds on application” – Holly (verified buyer)
