The Illuminating Tonic

Forget the "more is more" ethos in skincare. We're constantly told we need just "one more thing" to do something only slightly different than all the other products we use.

Years of studying cosmetic chemistry and Ayurvedic herbalism taught me that less is more.

Meet our Illuminating Tonic is a 5-in-1 multitasking powerhouse for all skin types.

When we say it does it all, we mean it:


✨ Brightens dark spots
✨ Treats and prevents acne
✨ Smooths and exfoliates without irritation
✨ Plumps fine lines and wrinkles
✨ Banishes dullness for a healthy glow

And it's all thanks to gentle, effective, and nontoxic ingredients like mandelic acid (gentlest of the AHAs), chamomile tea, plant hydrosols, hyaluronic acid, turmeric extract, and more.

Are you the proud owner of skin? Then The Illuminating Tonic can help you take your skin to the next level in just one easy-to-use product.

Please note: this product is not appropriate for individuals with an allergy to almonds. Mandelic acid (active ingredient) is derived from almonds.

Before moisturizer, apply 10 drops in palm, rub hands together, then pat into face and neck. Begin using 3X weekly, gradually increase as needed.

    So far so great!

    I’ve been using this product after my toner and before my moisturizer for about two weeks now. It absorbs quickly and is very light. The smell is also subtle and sweet, which I really like. I haven’t noticed any major change in my skin yet, but even without that I like the way using it makes me feel so I’ll probably get a larger size next time.

    Glowing for spring!

    I love this delicate but powerful tonic! I slowly incorporated into my skincare routine over the last 3 weeks and it has helped ease the appearance of my melasma. I feel like my skin is appearing more even and radiant! Highly recommend!

    Was skeptical at first

    I have always steered away from using oils on my face because ever since puberty my skin has been like an oil slick. However, I decided to give it a go and it has been a game changer. Not only has it helped my oiliness but has rehydrated dry spots above my eyebrows. I got them waxed not too long and have been using this product since end of November and she said she could tell I took good care of my skin! The product smells great and a little goes a long way! So thankful for Gabi for helping me get into this better skin care routine.

    Part of my weekly routine

    After a few months using this tonic consistently, my skin suffers way less irritation. I have had best results pairing it with the toning mist and a moisturizer at night. I love knowing when my skin is inflamed that it will be smooth and pain free in the morning if i use this toner!
