Ever since I started using toners after washing my face, my nighttime routine has not been complete without them. Here are my reviews of five toners I’ve been using over the past few weeks.
Mario Badescu Cucumber Cleansing Lotion
You can’t go wrong with Mario Badescu products. This cucumber cleansing lotion can be used twice a day after washing your face. It is very light and the first time I used it I wasn’t sure I was using enough because I couldn’t really feel the product on my skin. But in that sense it is good for sensitive skin because there isn’t a harsh smell or effect as soon as it touches your skin.
Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner
I recently got this one in a Target beauty box and it is supposed to “even out skin tone for a brighter, clearer, smoother complexion.” After one use I will admit that my skin did look a lot brighter than it has when using other toners which really surprised me. When used regularly it does have a nice effect as far as clearing skin and creating a brighter complexion and it’s just a tad tingly which is never a bad thing.
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water
I would highly recommend this one if you regularly use toners at night after you wash your face. Countless times I’ve washed my face and then used this toner only to find traces of makeup on the cotton ball, arousing my suspicion at the effectiveness of other makeup-removing products I use. You really feel like your skin has been properly cleansed after using this one and it also comes in cleansing towelettes, too.
L’Oréal Hydrafresh Toner
This one has always been my go-to, as you can tell by the nearly empty bottle. It is incredibly hydrating which I love because I live in the desert and I am constantly dousing myself in lotions and creams and lip balms to combat the incredibly dry air here. The smell isn’t overpowering and it is so refreshing that you almost don’t have to put moisturizer on right away.
Belif Bergamot Herbal Extract Toner
I got a sample set of Belif products from Sephora a few months ago and could do an entire post on these products and how much I love them. This toner is especially nice and has a rosy scent. Like the Simple cleansing water, you can see the makeup it’s removed on the cotton ball afterward , but similar tot he Mario Badescu cucumber cleansing lotion you kind of have to use a lot to feel like you are actually getting the most of it.
