Toner is such an important part of my skincare regime. Having drier skin I can use all the help I can get to keep my skin hydrated, soft, and smooth. Toner aids the chore and also allows my moisturizer to absorb easily into my skin.
Mists and toners are such an essential part of my daily regime and just something I wholeheartedly recommend even for folks that aren’t dry, they just really help balance skin out and prep skin for other parts of your skincare line up.
Recently I’ve been using Naris Up Japan Skin Conditioner Lotion Toner in two different formulas. These are HUGE bottles of toner that work not only to soften skin but also act as a great DIY mask, I’ll explain in a second.
Take a look!
These come in five formulas but two of my favorites are the Vitamin C formula and the Hyarulonic Acid. The Vitamin C formula supposedly whitens, I could be utterly bonkers, but my duller skin does look considerably nicer after use. Where as the Hyarulonic Acid Formula not only adds moisture but helps to retain it.
These are perfect for prep work prior to serums, moisturizers, etc…they help your other skincare products absorb easier and create a nice smooth surface for your other skincare products. I like using them after I wash and dry my face. They make an excellent quick moisturizer as well for those with oily skin.
The bottles are so large (over 12 oz) you can decant a small amount into tiny mister bottles and use them as an all over mist. Or my favorite, you can dose facial cotton with the toner and place them on your face as a facial mask of sorts. I like using Japanese Facial Cotton but you can use any square cotton pads you have. Simply saturate them completely with the toner and place them on your cheeks, forehead, and chin. Relax with them in place for a while, 20-30 minutes, remove, and your face will not only feel refreshed but nicely moisturized as well.
These are a nice bargain at this size.
I got mine from AlphabeautyUK on E-bay for $17 each (this includes shipping).
What toners do use?
