How Do I Choose A Toner For My Skin?

Do you use toner as part of your skin care routine? Many of us skip this step, thinking it isn't as important as cleansing and moisturizing, but finding the right toner for your skin can greatly improve both its appearance and texture.
Earlier versions of toners were often made with alcohol, so they developed a reputation for having a drying effect on skin. The formulas we carry in store and online are leagues ahead of these original ones, and will in fact help make your skin feel more hydrated and be better prepared to absorb the products you layer on afterwards.
We use our toner after cleansing, when skin is still a bit damp. No need to use a cotton pad to apply (why waste all that beautiful product on something other than your skin?) - just spray generously, then pat in your serum and/or moisturizer. Read about some of our favourite toners below to find out which is right for your skin type.
