    • 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.
    • Natural - vegan, paraben-free, no sillicates, polyethylene glycols (PEGS) or mineral oils and not tested on animals. Made in the UK.
    • Concentrated and long-lasting, 200ml of this toner offers exceptional value.

    Cera-C is our new toner formulated specifically to reduce enlarged pores. Cera-C contains niacinamide (also known as niacin) and a ceramide complex along with vitatmin c to brighten and aloe vera to soothe.

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.

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.

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.


Unfortunately this was way too thick and heavy on my skin but I see it works for many. I will try a different one as I have had great success with my skin and skin theory products!

Hi Anonymous Sorry this product isn't for you - we have issued you with a refund. Jamie


Bought this to reduce pore size, Ive tried loads of toners but nothing has ver worked. Ive been using for about two weeks and its working, nearly didn't buy because some reviews said it was sticky but its not at all, goes on really nicely and does not leave any sticky feeling or touch. very good and will buy again and try some other products from this company too.


Lovely toner , & appears to be reducing the size of my pores

Jenni Simpkin

Really nice product, skin felt fresh and comfortable.

Julie Adair

Unfortunately I have noticed no improvement at all. The lotion is slightly 'sticky' on application, but soon feels normal. I was hoping it would be effective.

Hi Julie Sorry to hear this, please contact us for a refund or exchange. The toners are alcohol-free and we don't include any volatile ingredients in like sillicones that would make them evaporate quickly. This means they take a little longer to dry but should be better for your skin. If you have any further queries or would like a refund or exchange, please contact us at help@facetheory.com Jamie

Dawn Elrick

Really refreshing and has brightened by skin appearance

Claire Connolly

Amazing products - will not use any other brand and customer service the best


This is the only product out of 4 that I ordered that I wouldn't buy again. It leaves a sticky residue on the skin. I've tried less, more, on wet skin, with cotton wool etc but I can't get past how it feels.

Sorry this product wasn't for you - drop us a line at help@facetheory.com and we'll arrange a refund for you. Jamie

I have always struggled with enlarged pores on my cheeks and nose. I started using this toner 2 weeks ago and the difference has been amazing. The toner is the only thing I've changed, having had it recommended to me by a friend. Not only are the pores smaller and less noticeable, but I've also noticed a reduction in the number of black heads I have in these areas too. Overall, I think this toner is amazing and will be recommending to all my friends!


Ju Canon

I am impressed by the quality of this product, it has been two weeks now I am using it and I can see a major difference. It feels so smooth and the skin looks incredible.

Mrs Lavin

Purchased for my daughter - she's really pleased with it.


Brilliant product! I have bought second bottle. pores look smaller in the morning.

Yvonne Rouski

This is very good for reducing large pores, I have only been using for a couple of weeks but I have noticed a clearer complexion.


This toner is brilliant. Leaves skin feeling softer and brighter. Also works well on its own as the ingredients in it are beneficial.

Emma Swain

Lovely toner! Gets every bit of dirt off my face after cleansing!
