Facial toners are one of those things that can often be forgotten in a skincare routine… but it can prove to be quite an important step to really ensure that you’re getting the best results from your routine.
When do you use a facial toner?
Before moisturizing and after cleansing.
What does a toner do?
- Helps removes any last traces of dirt, oil and makeup.
- Corrects and balances the pH of your skin.
- It can help increase the efficacy of your other products.
How to use a toner
- Cleanser your face first
- Dampen a cotton ball/disc with your toner, apply it to your face
- Allow to dry.
- Continue on with your routine.
Recently, we’ve fallen back in love with toners and here are some floral skin toners that I have been loving recently for their gentle touch, effectiveness and gorgeous scent ….Perfect for the summer!
PIXI Rose Tonic
Smells lovely and fresh, aimed at calming redness on the skin whilst restoring the PH balance. For those of you with sensitive skin – this could be one to try! (But of course, always patch test!)
SKN RG Cellular Balance Toner
This toner contains a calming botanical complex of Calendula, Chamomile and Rose Geranium calm, smooth and soothe the skin whilst reducing inflammation.
Urban Veda Soothing Toner
We recently filmed a Founders Talk with this brand (coming soon, stay tuned) and in this, they spoke about the beauty of this product… and they were not wrong! This soothing toner contains myrrh which relieves skin conditions such as eczema, calming sandalwood, cooling aloe vera and skin tone-improving orange to create a beautiful toner that leaves the skin feeling supple and soothed.
Casa Mencarelli Orange and Honey Toner
This one smells good enough to eat! A beautiful blend of honey and orange, this Italian toner is gentle and effective. The toner has a similar PH to the skin to balance it and has the most gorgeous scent without being overpowering.
Herbal Dynamics Beauty Rose Calming Face Toner
This is one of the only ones on our list that is in a spray bottle, which makes this great also as you can use it as a hydrating spray throughout the day. Smells nice and feels good on the skin, with a combination of rose, green tea, chamomile, and witch hazel. Aloe and hyaluronic acid deliver instant hydration for a fresh, youthful appearance.
You can either spray this directly on your face or on a cotton pad to apply.
BYBI Mega Mist
This is another mist and I love using this throughout the day as well as a toner before serums and creams, as I feel like it gives such a good base. The high level of Hylaronic Acid in this product means that it preps the skin perfectly for other products and help draw moisture into the skin. Beautiful!
