Toners and how to choose them

Toners are not really an unusual thing when it comes to skincare. If you read our previous posts you know how important is to implement them in your skincare routine. The main reason why we use them is to remove excess oil in our skin and balance our Ph. However, toner is also good as an in between step after cleansing and before all the essences, oils, serums. In fact, it lets penetrate better all the ingredients for these things into our skin. It also removes excess of make-up that it might have remained after cleansing.

So yes, Toner is extremely important for our skin.

Although at the beginning all the alcohol based toners made it impossible to be used to all the skin types, nowadays we have a toner for every need. You need to know your skin and your skin needs before buying a toner, rather than purchasing what’s trending at the moment. You’re not making your skin a favour by doing that.

TIP: Did you know that you can use glycolic toners or other exfoliating toners as a mask? Just put it into a cotton mask and voilà, your homemade personalised mask is ready to be used!

How to apply it?

Right after cleansing apply it with cotton pads.


Below my favourite toners:

  • THE ORDINARY GLYCOLIC ACID 7% SOLUTION.

Not only the price is super convenient for such a big size, but it’s honestly one of the best glycolic acids you will find out there. Glycolic acid is one of the best exfoliating AHA to remove dead skin cells and leave your complextion radiant. Use it at night and always wear spf the next day.

  • VERSED BABY CHEEKS HYDRATING MILK TONER

The name says it all. It’s a cleansing milk that moisturise and hydrate your skin as well. You can easily use this in the morning after cleansing, or if you’re in a rush as a cleanser.

  • REN READY STEADY GLOW DAILY AHA TONIC

It brightens, micro-exfoliates, hydrates, tightens and evens out the skin. Really being consistent with this toner will give you lasting results. Its new, greener bottle is also made from 100 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic — a big plus.

  • PIXI GLOW TONIC

Super refreshing, this gorgeous product brightens, tones and conditions the skin after cleansing. It’s composed by 5% glycolic acid which exfoliates the skin, removing all the dull dead cells, aloe that soothes and hydrates. Ginseng promotes cell health. It’s suitable for all skin types
