Purity Balance

Exfoliating Prep Toner


Cleanse & Balance

Exfoliate and remove pore-clogging oil and impurities with this toner for a clearer, shine-free complexion. Ideal for oily, congested or breakout-prone skin.

  • Benefits
  • Application
  • Ingredients


A combination of science and botanical ingredients help firm skin and smooth lines and wrinkles.

Helps to even skin tone by reducing the look of acne scars, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.

Free radical-fighting antioxidants defend skin from environmental stress that can cause inflammation and damage to collagen and elastin.

Acne is caused when oil, hair and dead skin cells clog pores. Ingredients such as Salicylic Acid and AGP Complex help stimulate cell turnover to curb breakouts.

Formulated free of petroleum-based oils to gently nourish skin without clogging pores.

Improved texture and proper product absorption is due to exfoliation. When the surface layer of the skin is removed, fresh skin is revealed and can absorb active ingredients easier.



Spray directly onto a cotton pad and swipe across clean skin every morning and/or evening. Allow skin to dry before applying other products. Follow with recommended serums, moisturizer and sunscreen. Ideal prep to enhance mask and serum penetration.

Purity Balance is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product/new packaging not great I love the Cosmedix products but have been frustrated by some of the packaging in the past. I'm thrilled that Cosmedix did some upgrades, but the packaging for this product is actually worse than the previous packaging. The spray that comes out is too fine making it difficult to saturate a cotton pad or cotton ball as much of the product just gets aerosolized. To remedy this, I end up holding my cotton pad right against the nozzle, but then the silver paint on the package starts to flake off. I have now poured my product into a different spray bottle that is much more serviceable. I hope they figure this out and fix the packaging for this product. Having said that, the product itself is great! I am in my fifties and I love this stuff. It helps to normalize my combination skin, minimizes pores and redness and is a great prep before doing a mask or putting on a serum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful I recently started using this spray, about 3 weeks now. Im shocked. what ever it is doing to my skin I love it. I noticed my pore's on my nose are smaller. (no Joke) I use this every night and usually once during the day. To see such a huge difference in my pore's is still amazing to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great toner and prep I started using the benefit clean and balance before using purity clean and balance, then I started to use the purity at night. Honestly, my skin likes the purity so much better. My face feels more clean and refreshed after using purity. I may just start using solely purity. The minty scent and feel definitely add to the clean feeling, and especially with the pure enzymes mask, they both work wonders together. Like the description says, the purity balance is actually a really good exfoliating prep. Now I know from experience. I would recommend this product along with the purity clean and pure enzymes if you have oily skin. Personally, my skin care regimen looks like this: Morning - purity clean, purity balance, (may try sticking pure enzymes in here?), clarity serum, phytoclear (which I think is a little heavier than I'd like? thinking about trying mystic), and pure c with reflect. Night - purity clean and balance, pure enzymes, purity balance, clarity serum, alternate defind and refine, and pure c with phytoclear.

I'm confused about the order in which this is to be used with the Purity Clean. Should it be used before to prepare for exfoliation or after to sooth and balance?

Asked by: Anonymous
Purity Balance should be used in the traditional step use a "toner". However, Purity Balance is used more to exfoliate and unclog impurities, and isn't really used for soothing. If you need a soothing balancer then we recommend Benefit Balance.

When following up with the Hydrate+ sunscreen, should I wait till the Purity Balance dries up on my face?

Asked by: Anonymous
Absorption of Purity Balance is best, but not necessary for application of Hydrate+.

I am 20 years old and have combination oily skin, with localised hormonal acne in my T-zone area. However, I have slightly dry cheeks in winter. I am concerned about breakouts, acne scarring and uneven skin tone. Which products/regime should I use?
