"Since acne is a skin inflammatory disease, I formulated this to provide calm and comfort to lessen visible inflammation, oil and blemishes."
Renée Rouleau


  • Balancing Skin Tonic by Renée Rouleau is a therapeutic, alcohol-free skin & face toner formulated for sensitive skin to reduce the appearance of bumps and breakouts while reducing oil production deep within the pores. An advanced blend of natural witch hazel, geranium and niacinamide (vitamin B3) also offers soothing hydration while diminishing post-breakout discolored marks and scarring. The result? Skin will look and feel clearer, calmer and balanced and be perfectly primed to achieve maximum results from the skincare that follows.
