This is not your average toner. Our pH Balance Gel Toner is an innovative gel that is loaded with botanical actives to calm, soothe, and deeply hydrate the skin. Unlike traditional liquid formulations, our toner is a concentrated gel you massage into the skin to not only reduce excess oil and help minimize the appearance of your pores but it also locks in antioxidant hydration and protection.

pH Balance Gel Toner will:

  • Help to minimise enlarged pores
  • Reduce excess oil & reset your skin
  • Even skin tone & texture
  • Hydrate your skin without clogging pores
  • Revitalize and refresh
  • Cool any inflammation or redness, especially when refrigerated
  • Doubles as an intense hydration mask when layered onto your skin & left for 10 minutes

Plant Based Ingredients

Vitamin B3 – Also known as Niacinamide, this much-loved antioxidant excels at skin refining by boosting hydration, repairing and fortifying your skin barrier and improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Witch Hazel – A botanical astringent, Witch Hazel helps to reduce excess oil and refine pores. An effective antioxidant, it neutralises free radicals and soothes and calms skin in the process.

Aloe Vera - This soothing botanical quickly calms, cools, and soothes your skin. It’s easily absorbed and will benefit all skin types, from oily through to dry. It’s also an efficient hydrator to help replenish lost moisture.

Cucumber – Rich in antioxidant Vitamin C, Cucumber is a natural skin brightener and hydrator (thanks to its high water content). It helps to quickly soothe and calm, leaving skin feeling balanced and refreshed. It can also help to reduce excess oil.

Complete Ingredient Profile:
Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Alcohol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Polysorbate 20, Polysorbate 80, Aqua, Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Hamamelis Virginiana Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus Fruit, Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Parfum

Twice daily. After cleansing, apply one pump of our pH Balance Gel Toner onto your face and neck and allow to absorb for a few minutes before applying your moisturiser. You’ll notice the gel consistency is a little thicker than you may be used to; this is due to the amount of healing active Aloe Vera in the formulation. If your skin is inflamed or you’re experiencing sunburn, refrigerate the toner before use for an instant cooling and healing effect that will help to reduce redness and irritation.

TIP: To use pH Balance Gel Toner as a quick-fix hydrating mask, apply double the amount, layer all over the skin, and leave to take effect for 10 minutes before rinsing with warm (not hot) water.

Gel Toner

The Gel Toner is a thick gel, so not your usual toner however a small amount goes a very long way and skin feels tighter and and hydrated after use.

Loving this product and this company!

I purchased this less than a month ago and I am already noticing the amazing differences! I love using the toner as a mask for ultimate hydration! It’s super thick and very hydrating. I even used it when I had a bit of sun burn and it was gone by the morning!! The texture is lovely and the fragrance is not too strong. Packaging is also very luxurious and 100% worth what you pay for!!

Gently refreshed my skin without feeling like it stripped my skin of its natural moisture

Skin felt clean as the toner removed excess dirt visually on my cotton pad. Loved the smell of this product.

frequently asked questions

Yes. Every anti-ageing essential has been certified vegan by PETA.

Absolutely. Every anti-ageing essential has been certified cruelty-free by PETA.

We don’t use parabens, glycols, or sodium laureth sulphates (SLSs) in any of our anti-ageing essentials, nor will we in the future.

Yes and we’d love to explain why. We use high concentrations of active natural ingredients that science has proven will create change in the skin – our primary motivation. However, some of these ingredients can smell particularly unpleasant in their natural state, more so when they’re applied to the skin. And this is why we’ve incorporated small amounts of synthetic fragrance into our formulations, with the exception of our Cellular Eye Repair, to help balance their overall scent. Essential oils are sometimes used in skincare to mask the scent of natural ingredients however we find that they can often be the source of irritation in the skin which is why we choose to use small amounts of synthetic fragrance instead.

Yes we do. We love and respect our environment and are mindful of the impact ELLUS & KRUE has on that environment. That’s why all of our packaging is made from recyclable and renewable materials. We also use plant-based inks, biodegradable wrapping paper, and mail satchels made from 100% recyclable material. We know we’re not perfect but we’re continually looking for ways in which we can lighten our environmental footprint, now and into the future. And we’re always open to suggestions: email us at

It’s likely you’ll see results from using our ELLUS & KRUE anti-ageing essential after two weeks of use. As with most skincare products, you’ll see the most significant improvement within four weeks of diligent use.

We are mindful not to offer medical advice and encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider before starting a new skincare regime, particularly one that includes Vitamin A (retinoids). You can find the complete ingredient profile for each of our anti-ageing essentials on our website, as well as on the back of the product packaging.

For those with dry and/or sensitive skin, mild flakiness is not uncommon when using our EPI-gN™ Serum for the first time. We encourage you to keep using the serum as the flaking is a positive sign that your skin’s natural exfoliating process is working to remove expired skin cells and boost cellular renewal.  

Yes and we’re glad you asked. Traditionally, toners have been formulated in a liquid texture that you wipe or splash over your skin after cleansing. With our pH Balance Gel Toner, we’ve created an innovative gel texture which comes from the generous amount of hydrating and calming Aloe Vera we use to soothe and balance the skin. We’ve never seen anything (else) quite like it and as such, it’s one of our ELLUS & KRUE signatures.

TIP: We also like to use pH Balance Gel Toner as an intensely hydrating mask for 10-15 minutes.

It’s unusual but it can happen. Firstly, ensure you’re using your ELLUS & KRUE anti-ageing essential as directed. Feel free to contact our Customer Support Team or live chat with us on our website. If you’re following our application directions and your skin is reacting then we would advise you to stop using the suspected product immediately and, if your skin condition persists, please consult a healthcare provider. NB: Our ingredient profiles are detailed on our website and on the back of our product packaging.
