Everyone’s heard of the holy grail three-step skincare routine of cleanse, tone and moisturise, but many don’t know a lot about the middle step. Toning is a secondary cleansing step, which is also designed to reduce the appearance of pores. However, they can be a little too astringent and can sometimes upset the skin more than they enhance it. Keep reading if you want to find out what I think are the three best skin toners around.
Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic (£15)
This skin toner is one that I have used for years, and still use to this day. It is a staple of my routine and a product that I really love. One of my favourite things about this is that it isn’t at all astringent. After using this my skin feels refreshed, renewed and ready for moisturiser.
Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 (£17.50)
The Clinique toner isn’t for those of you with sensitive skin, as it is way more astringent and actually acts as a chemical exfoliator. At first I didn’t like it as I felt that it was too stripping, but when used in conjunction with the Liz Earle skin tonic, and Korean essence, it provides a beneficial effect.
Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner (£23.50)
If you like a scented toner, then this is for you. The apricot element of this tonic is my favourite thing about it. It makes you smell so fruity and delicious, and it makes the skin feel wonderful. It may have a high price point, but I believe that it is well and truly worth it.
