Toners play an important role in every woman’s skin care routine. Once you find that perfect toner for your skin, you will notice your skin looking brighter, smoother, and fresher. I want to share with you some of my favorite toners that have helped my skin tremendously.
Why use a toner?
Different toners are good at different things depending on the formula and ingredients. However, most high quality toners, when used consistently, will make a huge difference in the way your skin looks and feels. Use your toner right after cleansing. This works to restore your skin’s pH balance, remove dead skin and surface impurities, and tighten pores. It is all about finding the right toner for your skin type. Here are a few of my favorite toners that I have used myself and absolutely love!

Kate Somerville: Clarifying Treatment Toner
This Kate Somerville toner is great for those of you with oily skin and skin discoloration from acne scarring. I used this toner when I was having trouble with dark spots on my cheeks and this toner worked wonders for me. This toner has phytic acid in it that helps to brighten your skin and decrease the appearance of acne scars. I used this in combination with Meladerm (my favorite dark spot treatment) and the hyperpigmentation on my cheeks started to disappear in no time. This toner also helps to prevent breakouts. It has antiseptic properties that fights off bacteria and prevents future breakouts.
Pixi: Glow Tonic
This toner is my holy grail toner. This is the toner that I am currently using, and I am in love with it. Glow tonic is formulated with 5% glycolic acid, which helps to exfoliate, remove dead skin cells, and tone and tighten pores. This toner leaves you with a brighter, glowing complexion. The reason I love this toner is due to the way it makes my skin look and feel so soft, smooth and glowing.
Neutrogena: Pore Refining Toner
This Neutrogena toner is my favorite drug-store brand toner. This toner’s formula contains alpha and beta hydroxy acids. This toners helps to decrease the size of your pores, smooths the surface of your skin, and corrects uneven patches while removing dead skin from the surface. This formula is also hypoallergenic and works well on sensitive skin types.
Murad: Essential-C Toner
Murad is an awesome skin care line. They have produced this Essential-C Toner in a spray bottle formula. I love the ease of application with this spray. You can simply spritz it on to your clean face after cleansing. This toner helps to moisturize and restore the pH balance of your skin. This is one of Murad’s patented formulas for environmentally stressed skin, meaning that it contains antioxidants, vitamin C and E, Rice amino acids, and orange fruit extract. All of these ingredients work to tone, brighten, and protect your skin.
This toning lotion formula made by Peter Thomas Roth is one of a kind. The formula contains 24K gold to help sooth redness, hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin, Vitamins A, C, and E to fight free radicals, and 18 anti-aging neuropeptides to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works wonderfully to tone, soften and prep your skin for other skin care products.
