Rapid Response Detox Toner goes to work immediately to clear clogged pores and reduce oil while improving the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

Regular price


"Not all heroes wear capes—sometimes they arrive in a six fluid ounce bottle packed with glycerin, lactic acid, manuka oil and other skin-saving ingredients that fight off active breakouts."


  • Rapid Response Detox Toner by Renée Rouleau is a multi-action treatment that interrupts breakouts in their early stages by instantly reducing surface bacteria on the skin. This toner also helps skin recover more quickly from blemishes. AHA and BHA exfoliants help limit blackhead formation and clear clogged pores. The addition of a soothing, prebiotic sugar helps balance the skin’s microbiome, encouraging a healthy ecosystem where “bad” bacteria won’t thrive. The result? Skin will be clear, calm, smooth and hydrated. Pair with Rapid Response Detox Cleanser for even more acne-fighting benefits. You can also take this to the next level and add the Rapid Response Detox Masque, the product that started the whole line. The Rapid Response Detox Masque is very effective for preventing the appearance of all types breakouts, including cysts, pustules, papules, and monthly hormonal blemishes. All three are included in our Rapid Response Detox Kit.

    Size: 6 fl oz

  • FAQs

  • How does this toner differ from the Rapid Response Detox Masque or Rapid Response Detox Cleanser?

    Leptospermum Scoparium (Manuka) Branch/Leaf Oil and Tea Tree are the two ingredients that Rapid Response Detox Masque and Rapid Response Detox Cleanser have in common with this toner. The toner differs in that it offers more potent blackhead-clearing benefits. The addition of a prebiotic also promotes the growth of healthier bacteria to keep skin acting clear and calm.

    Why did you choose to use prebiotics in the toner rather than probiotics? 

    We chose to use prebiotics instead of probiotics in order to ensure a safe and effective product. Using probiotics in skincare can be risky because you’re adding live microbes to a product, which can be difficult to control for. Prebiotics still positively affect your skin’s microbiome without the risks and challenges associated with preservation and storage of live microbes.

    Is this toner considered an exfoliating toner?

    No. While it does have two acids in the formula that give the skin various benefits, they are used in a small amount and not enough to act as a true exfoliator.

    Can I safely use an acid serum after using this toner or will that be too much?

    You can safely use this toner with other exfoliating products without a problem.

    Can I use this product if I’m pregnant?

    Probably not. This product uses salicylic acid which some doctors suggest avoiding during pregnancy. Consult with your doctor.

    Is this product vegan?

    Yes, Rapid Response Detox Toner is vegan.

    What is the acid percentages in this toner?

    2% Betaine Salicylate (a Salicylic Acid complex) and 0.3% lactic acid.

    What gives the toner its yellow color?

    We don't use any synthetic dyes. The golden yellow color comes from a combination of Bixa Orellana Seed Extract and Caramel.

    Can I use it if I have rosacea?

    Yes, this formula can be tolerated well by those who have been diagnosed with mild rosacea.

    Is this product tested on animals?


    What is the pH level of this product?

    The pH level of Rapid Response Detox Toner is 4.1.

    Where are your products made?

    Our products are manufactured in the U.S. and Canada.

    I took your Skin Type Quiz and was wondering if I can use products that weren't specified for my skin type?

    Yes. While the skin type product recommendations are carefully selected for the needs of a specific type, many people will modify their routine with other products as needed.

      Skin change means product change

      I recently changed some products I was using as I was noticing more oily clogged pores and breakouts . I went from a skin type 2 , to skin type 3. I have been using this toner after the detox cleanser and I have noticed a big difference! I have less breakouts and I love how non drying this formula is.

      Life saver!

      I’ve never been a toner user until I found this one and it’s a game changer for my acne prone skin. Whenever I run out of it I start to break out. Definitely one that I keep an extra bottle of in reserves.

      Leaves skin feeling greasy and sticky. Doesn't help acne at all. Not impressed with any of her products. Make me breakout- including the rapid response cleanser, the detox mask, the acne cleanser and the triple berry mask. Everything I've tried have caused more breakouts. Very disappointed in all the products especially for how expensive they are.

      This and the Skin Correcting Serum have saved my skin. I’ve always been prone to breakouts but in the last several months, presumably due to perimenopause, I started getting dozens of little pimples all over my face, every single day. It was AWFUL. As bad as when I was a teenager. I ordered this and the serum and started using them about two weeks ago. The breakouts have reduced by at least 75%. I feel and look SO much better. I am so grateful. No dryness or irritation whatsoever, just calmer, happier skin. I will be a customer forever.
