    • Reformulation alert! Orders placed on 24 September or later will benefit from our new silky formulation.
    • A lightweight toner formulated to refine and reduce enlarged pores. 5% Niacinamide (vitamin b3) and ceramides work to reduce skin oxidation, restore elasticity, make skin less oily and minimize pore size.
    • Ceramide is a lipid found in the skin which holds skin cells together, acting as a protective layer to retain moisture. It is lost during ageing and exposure to environmental factors. Cera-C will replenish these natural lipids - restoring your skin's natural balance.
    • Panthenol (viamin b5) is hygroscopic and helps skin absorb moisture.
    • Stabilized vitamin c at a skin-friendly pH lightens and brightens and fights acne bacteria.
    • Sodium lactate hydrates skin and aloe vera and vitamin e soothes. Lactic acid (AHA) further brightens uneven skin.

    • Concentrated and long-lasting, 200ml of this toner offers exceptional value.

I was in need of a new toner and thought I'd try this one. It's thicker than others I've tried but I've definitely seen a difference in the texture of my skin - a lot smoother and less obvious pores. I use the cleanser with this too and have been every night for around 2 weeks. The worst hormonal breakout I've ever had is finally starting to calm down. This and the cleanser are the only 2 new things I've been using so I can only conclude that its these 2 products that have made the difference.

Absolutely brilliant.


This toner has improved the look and texture of my skin. I feel more confident to go out without wearing make up since using this product

Linda Young

I feel this product is helping but skin specialist says I need more time to notice a difference as I have Sebcious Hyperplasia.

Emmanuela Boakye

It makes my skin have an itchy sensation.

Hi Sorry you didn't like this product - please contact help@facetheory.com for a full refund jamie

I bought this product along with exfoliating scrub and daily moisturiser, whilst my skin does feel soft I haven't noticed any reduction in the size of my pores on my cheeks, which is why I bought the product.


This is amazing! I noticed my pores were significantly tighter after a week of using this daily!


I love almost all of the Facetheory products I have tried. However, the one thing I don't like is this Cera-C Pore Reducing Toner. I prefer toners to be refreshing and to provide a clean, toned base in which I can then apply my serums/moisturiser. However, I wasn't aware the formula would be quite gel-like, as opposed to traditional toners which are of a watery-consistency. Due to this, I find it to be too thick to use as a toner. It would perhaps work better for dry skin types (I have immensely oily skin) because it is quite moisturising. Since I don't want to be skipping out on my serums and moisturisers, I have switched to another toner brand as I fear that all Facetheory toners will be the same - texture-wise. In addition, I've noticed I break out in spots whenever I use it. I have a feeling it is due to the ceramides, although I'm not 100% sure why. They die down once I stop using the toner and come back if I start using it again (which is how I know it's the toner causing the spots.) Other points: - The scent is fine, smells like aloe vera and that's pretty much it. - Comes in a dark amber glass bottle, giving it a luxurious feel (which is great considering the affordable price) I really wanted to love this product, which is why I used it so much despite the texture and breaking out. But it has come to a point where I just have to accept this product is not for me. Will stick to my rose water/witch hazel toners from other brands!

Thanks for the great feedback. We've taken an approach that avoids astringent ingredients like witch hazel and alcohol - so cera-c definitely has different feel to those. Please contact us for a refund or alternative product :) Jamie


Lovely product, makes my skin feel toned and fresh. Would buy again.


I have really large pores and oily skin but after using this product for about 2 weeks I really started to notice a big improvement! I will Be repurchasing this product. I love that it’s all natural and the glass bottle is environmental friendly!


Good however I wish the bottle didn’t come with a pump

Stephanie Tan

I just like how this does not sting at all and I really feel like it really preps my skin for the rest of the products I put on after this toner. My skin is less dry but I can't say if I can attribute it directly to this toner or because this is a part of my overall (mostly Facetheory) regimen. What I do like is the texture because I don't need to use cotton anymore and just apply this directly on to my skin!


I've only been using this for just under 2 weeks, and I wonder if I could give it 5 stars with more experience of how it works. My skin definitely seems in better condition - brighter and clearer.

Heidi bowden

Helped minimise my pores and helped with my complexion. Doesn’t dry out your skin either so perfect for me

BJ Greenaway

Only used for 2 weeks so cannot see the full benefits but feels nice and refreshing


I have been using this product for 6months now, there was a marked improvement initially and then the improvement seemed to slow down but. I have a problem with enlarged pores on my nose but they have virtually disappeared. Really pleased with the results definitely worth persevering with.


It stings a little bit if you have sensitive skin, other than that it leaves good feeling on your skin.

Jerri Callis

This toner is very smooth, a little goes a long way so it lasts! I have far less break outs, if any since using it in combination with other face theory products.

Catherine Campbell

Great toner that leaves my skin feeling soft and refreshed. I have definitely noticed a reduction in my pore size, especially on my forehead which is my problem area! A little of this product goes a long way, don’t use too much as it doesn’t absorb as quickly as other toners I have used. My skin is definitely looking better already and people have commented on the fact I look ‘fresh faced’. I have quite sensitive skin that is spot prone, especially on my forehead, and this product along with other products from face theory have made a notable difference! Only downside is the pump is a bite rubbish, it leaks and once you have opened it you can’t ‘lock’ it so I can’t imagine it would travel well if I wanted to take it away with me. It’s a shame otherwise I wouldn’t have given five stars for sure.

Holly Horton

I've been applying Cera-C Pore Reducing Toner once or twice a day for around 3 weeks now, and find it a lovely product to use. For me, it's not at all sticky and absorbs rapidly, and leaves my skin feeling soothed and refreshed. The bumper-sized bottle means you don't have to be stingy and it should still last for ages, making it very good value. There's a slight tingling after application, but I've experienced no adverse reactions and my skin feels very comfortable after use. However, unfortunately, although I have a nice, healthy glow, I have not noticed any reduction in pore size at all. I still enjoy using it as it makes my skin look and feel soft and healthy, but I bought it specifically to improve the size of my pores, and on that front, I am still waiting.

Hi Holly Thanks for your review. The tingling is normal with niacinamide. We've emailed you separately but you may wish to try the Porebright 10% Niacinamide serum instead :) Jamie


New review, I've now been using this product for almost a month and wow....my skin is so clear and glows


A gentle and calm toner that leaves skin clean and fresh

Danielle Stuckes

Best toner I have ever used! 10/10 x

Catherine Hodkinson

Recently purchased this toner and the results are wonderful will be buying more of this it makes your skin feel soft and definitely reduces pores

Megan Howcroft

I was super excited to try this product, it felt cool on the skin which was nice and I have noticed my skin is looking healthier. The only downside to this product is the quality of packaging i.e. The bottle. After one use the pump leakes constantly so half of the product has ended up on my table.

Hi Megan It sounds like you have a faulty pump. Apologies for this. We'll send you a free replacement. Jamie

rochelle Dixon

really nice toner love the style of the bottle pores have definatley improved




This is a great toner. I have enlarged pores and they are really noticeable, even with makeup. This product has definitely decreased the size of them and it's even reduced the blackheads on my nose. I definitely recommend this.
