Toner may still be the most misunderstood skincare commodity. Many people have a very vague view of it. They just do it if they need it, but they feel like they should. This is because they equate it with the fading, alcohol-filled treatments of past teenage acne issues, although they don’t use it.
Yet skin toner today is not the astringent product of your teenage years, thanks to newer formulations. It is not a frivolous accounting for skin care (although some toners are over-promising). Upon washing, toners prepare skin somewhere between plain water and an essence by rebalancing pH and allowing skin care products to permeate better later.

Acwell Licorice Toner
Waiting lists usually indicate hype more than anything, but for good reason this toner has sold out time and time again. Basically, it amazingly well prepares the skin for everything on top of which you layer. This brightening, calming, moisturizing toner relies on a combination of liqueur, peony, and green tea extracts to make the skin clear and plump.
The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution
This gentle acid toner meets two crucial criteria: Without unusual side effects, it works very well and you can snag it for a bargain. The Glycolic Acid Toning Solution of the Ordinary comes in a generous 240 mL package, with an equally enticing list of ingredients.
Pixi Glow Tonic
The peach-colored Glow Tonic comes in a plain, gold-lettered plastic bottle that makes the toner look a little fancier than the regular drugstore fare. On the watery side the solution rests on itself. Given the glycolic acid the Glow Tonic is soft enough for a typical toner to be mistaken. Upon the dissipation of the initial tingling it is. No rawness or dried flakes, just cleaner, lighter skin.
Origins Zero Oil Pore Purifying Toner
This Sources toner is among the most popular oily skin products. It is formulated using palmetto saw, mint, and salicylic acid. Saw palmetto cleans and refreshes the skin, mint cools and salicylic acid removes pores and prevents breakouts.
Earth’s Recipe Energy-Boosting Toner
Really this Korean toner just does one thing and one thing — hydrate — but it does that very, very well. It functions as a moisture magnet which will be appreciated by anyone who treats dry, flaky skin. The Energy-Boosting Toner includes Tremella mushroom, better known as snow mushroom, a fluffy white fungus that can support its weight in water 500 times over.
