Avalon Organics Intense Defense Balancing Toner, 8.5 Fluid Ounce

Avalon Organics Intense Defense Balancing Toner, 8.5 Fluid Ounce. Intense Defense with Vitamin C, for environmental stress and damage. This Balancing Toner infused with botanical extracts recalibrates natural moisture levels and tightens pores on freshly cleansed skin. Oxidative stress can cause free radical damage to skin resulting in collagen and elastin deterioration, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, freckles and sunspots. What causes this stress? Studies show that environmental factors, such as pollution, extreme temperatures, wind burn and even minimal exposure to UV light, can trigger damage to skin cells. The Intense Defense skincare line features a powerful medley of Vitamin C, Lemon Bioflavonoids and White Tea, all potent antioxidants proven to neutralize free radicals before they can cause damage, while naturally boosting collagen and elastin production. Over time, through skin’s natural renewal cycle, damaged skin cells will be eliminated while antioxidants help prevent further damage to new cells. Skin can regain its youthful glow and continue to fight the signs of aging. Avalon Organics is grounded in the knowledge that all beauty begins within the Earth. Guided by the wisdom of nature, each product is thoughtfully crafted for optimal effectiveness while meeting a strict organic standard. Formulas contain carefully selected botanicals that are nurtured by the elements then tenderly harvested to nourish the body from the outside in. Deep rooted beauty is at the heart of the Avalon Organics Guiding Principles – ensuring that every product reflects a deep reverence for the planet and all it provides and contributes in its own small way to a holistic lifestyle of health, wellness and sustainability.

Honest reviews


Good Toner

I really liked the smell of this toner it has an orange citrus smell. My main problem was that I thought it was 100% organic, and it says on the bottle that it is only 70% organic. I mean it’s not a deal breaker, but it would have been nice to know when I purchased it.

Prompt delivery

I have not taste them yet, I am waiting for my son to come back home, I bought the almonds for him. After I tasted the almonds, if it were not as advertised, I’ll explain.Amazon deserves 5 stars for its continue effort to provide the best service!

Ok but don’t think I will repurchase

This is an okay toner. I really don’t like the strong artificial orange smell. In my opinion it’s not worth a repurchase.

Used to love

They must have changed the formula. Used to love this product, have tried two separate bottles and they both have smelled like "sour" orange….it used to smell so good

Nice stuff!

I buy a few of the Avalon products and I have been pleased. I just started using it so I’m not sure how well it works long term but it smells good and feel good on the skin and keeps the skin refreshed.

Love this line of Avalon Organics!

I use the whole vitamin C line and love it. This toner has a great scent and leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean but not at all tight or dry. I notice a big difference in the clarity, tone, and texture of my skin. I love it!

great product!

Saw a Dr.Oz episode about vitamin C for your skin, ordered this and am very satisfied. Smells good, feels good and really does help your skin tone better.

Love this whole line and will use it forever

I use the entire collection of Avalon’s Vitamin C stuff and this is one of the products I will not go without. It is great to use after cleansing and leaves my skin feeling fresh. It has a great orange/citrus scent that is not at all perfumey or fake. It is also a great deal compared to what I have paid in the past for toners that are not nearly as good at removing the last layer of dirt and brightening up my complexion. To boot, I have dry skin and this stuff has never ever left my skin feeling taught or tight. Perfect stuff!

I’m an Avalon Organics lover, so there’s no surprise that I love this product. I love the scent of it. It’s like you’re rubbing an actual orange on your face. I know that it’s also helped in diminishing the hyper pigmentation on my face. It has last me about six months and I still have two or three months to go. I would recommend to anyone that wants to even tone, unclog pores, and reduce hyper pigmentation.
