My Current Facial Toner Rotation
I know there are skeptics, but I do find that toner helps with the overall look and feel of my skin when I use it regularly. According to an expert quoted in Into the Gloss, a toner's function is to complete the cleansing of your skin—removing the dust, pollution, and impurities that can still be lingering after washing with a cleanser, as cleansers usually contain ingredients such as oil, which can leave a film on your face. Below are the toners currently in my rotation for my “normal” skin (which sometimes acts up and has oily spots).
Hands down my favorite toner which is great year round but I do like it during the winter months when I need a little more moisture in general.
This is the newest addition to my collection which I’m using to help my skin hydration and overall clarity of my skin.
I purchased this toner last summer in Paris at a drug store and only have like two drops left and though I do like it, I probably won’t re-purchase it unless I see it again in a European drug store.
I purchased this during my trip to Marrakech last November and really like it as a more astringent in case I feel any blemishes pop up. I do want to try it mixed with a clay mask the next time I give myself one. It’s refreshing and reminds me of how much I enjoyed visiting Morrocco.
My toner of choice when my skin isn’t behaving and I get a blemish. I don’t typically get major breakouts, but sometimes do get a stray pimple here and there or fine bumps if I don’t stay on a consistent skin routine or forget to wash my make-up brushes frequently.
Do you use toner? And if so, do you have any favorites?
