Toners, something that always used to come in the skin care kits you'd get gifted for Christmas but you never really knew what they were for... I don't know about you but I now can't live without!
They tighten, remove excess cleanser, help to "close" the pores- that's a blog for a different day but your pores aren't muscles they can't physically close, they reduce appearance of said pores I should say, they balance the pH of your skin, they make your skin feel soooo fresh and if you have problematic skin you can spend a bit extra and get them with active ingredients to help with blemishes, acne and breakouts which is just wonderful!
Toners are always reasonably priced for the wonders they work. Ours range from 20.99-35.86 GBP (29.69-50.73 USD) and it's something you'll use daily! Trust me you won't not once you've used it once.
My personal favourites at the moment are the below; the 'Here You Glow' exfoliating toner with AHA's, BHA's and PHA's and the "Clear Action' toner for hormanal/stress breakouts.
The HA's in the Here You Glow will dissolve pore-blocking dirt, promote cellular turnover and unglue dead skin cells from the skin's surface.
The Clear Action toner contains liquorice extract, zinc PCA and a blend of vitamins. This advanced toner calms angry, red skin and manages oil levels. Liquorice extract soothes irritated skin, while zinc PCA helps control sebum levels. As for the union of vitamins C and E, it replenishes the natural antioxidant supply that is lost when your skin is fighting breakouts.
Which will you try first?
