Brighten Up

Reveal the Brightness Beneath

This gentle yet effective exfoliating toner sloughs away dead skin cells, refines pore, smooths skin, and helps reduce the look of dark spots thanks to a triple acid complex of three types of chemical exfoliants.

  • Non-abrasive exfoliating and toning liquid
  • Helps remove impurities, even skin tone, make skin more radiant, exfoliate dead skin cells, and reduce dark spots
  • Helps refine and reduce pore size
  • Formulated with proven AHAs (Lactic acid), BHAs (Salicylic acid), and PHAs (Bromelain)
  • Use on face, neck, and décolleté after cleansing to help prime skin for the rest of your skincare routine
  • Gentle enough to use daily; if used in the AM, follow with SPF

2-in-1 Exfoliating Toner


3.4 fl oz / 100 ml



Forget abrasive scrubs or harsh treatments that leave your skin red and irritated. Exfoliation shouldn’t hurt! With Brighten Up, you can reveal a brighter, more radiant complexion without irritation. But trust us, just because you won’t be scrubbing your face raw doesn’t mean you aren’t exfoliating your skin; in fact, the chemical exfoliants in Brighten Up are safer and more effective because you won’t be breaking your skin barrier (a smart move for sensitive aging skin).

Its optimized blend of AHAs, BHAs, and PHAs combines all you need to help support cell turnover and keep skin feeling soft—plus it’s gentle enough to use daily.

Absolutely no estrogen, phytoestrogen, or added hormones. Free from animal-derived ingredients, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, artificial colors, formaldehyde, and mineral oils.

How To Use

After cleansing and patting skin dry, moisten a cotton pad with a few drops and swipe over a clean face, neck, and décolleté. Do not rinse. Follow up with the rest of your skincare routine. 

New to exfoliants? Begin by using Brighten Up 2 – 3 times per week, gradually working up to everyday use.
 Best for nighttime use. Alternate using Brighten Up and retinol products like Plump It Up and vitamin C products like Fountain of Glow on different days. As always, please use SPF during the day.

Hero Ingredients


An alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that exfoliates the surface of the skin while encouraging cellular turnover and brightening skin tone. It also helps keep skin hydrated due to its ability to bind water within skin.


Also called beta hydroxy acid or BHA, this oil soluble acid mimics the natural exfoliation process of younger skin by unclogging and clearing pores, exfoliating the buildup of dull, dead skin on the skin’s surface. It also helps clear and control excess oil production without dryness or irritation and reduces the appearance of pores.


The gentlest acid in the group, this PHA is an enzyme found in the pineapple plant that soothes skin while buffing away dead skin cells to leave your skin smoother and brighter.


Also known as European Wild Blueberries, Bilberries (Vaccinium Myrtillus) strengthen the skin against signs of redness, boost skin’s environmental defenses against UVA light, and are an incredible source of antioxidants.


Including Saccharum Officinarum (Sugar Cane) Extract, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Acer Saccharum (Sugar Maple) Extract, and Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, these extracts provide a gentler form of cell turnover while still providing exfoliation.
