Ole considers toners to be an essential step in every skincare regimen. Not only do they sweep away dirt, oil and makeup, but they also leave skin perfectly primed for serum and moisturizer.
Inspired by his Exfoliate-Treat-Soothe philosophy, Ole Henriksen Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner perfectly balances highly concentrated AHAs with skin-soothing botanicals – which means the formula is as effective as it is a joy to use.
This potent toner is clinically tested to reduce the look of dark spots in as little as 7 days. It also targets fine lines, wrinkles, and smoothes texture. But this powerhouse has a soft side, too. Infused with sandalwood, chamomile and licorice extracts, it’s gentle enough for daily use. Tone post-cleansing for a skin-smoothing boost and you’ll be perfectly prepped for serum and moisturizer.
High-potency AHAs (glycolic acid & lactic acid) – even texture, help reduce the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
Witch hazel water – a natural distillate of the witch hazel tree, known to be a natural astringent to help brighten and refine skin
Lemon, sugar cane, licorice root, chamomile and sandalwood extracts – help soothe and condition skin

At night, pour onto a cotton pad and swipe over clean, dry face in a circular motion. Follow with the Ole Henriksen serum or moisturizer of your choice. For external use only. Use as directed. This product contains active ingredients.
This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase skins sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product.
As someone who has acne prone skin with acne marks, scars and dark spots all the time, I know there are no magic product out there that can get rid of these marks in one sleep. I do, however, use particular products that gets rid of marks and scars but it takes time.
My first impression of the Ole Henriksen Glow2OH Dark Spot Toner is that it smells amazing – it’s like sweet lemon custard. Secondly, I love how soothing it feels after swiping the cotton pad with toner onto the face. It did feel a tad bit drying when I don’t immediately follow up with my serums and moisturizer.
After a full week of usage, I did notice my dark spots have either fading (newer marks) or completely faded (older marks). My skin looked and felt clearer. At the end of the day, scars and marks takes time to fade but the toner definitely helps speed up the process by a bit versus not doing anything at all and having it eventually fade naturally.
