Toner needs to be the base of your facial skin care regimen and should be used every time you cleanse your face. Even the gentlest cleanser removes nutrients and antioxidants vital to your skin. BUT....Cleansers don't remove all the impurities your skin collects during the day, or the oils it collects while you sleep. Toner removes those traces left behind, including makeup, while replenishing, hydrating, and balancing your skin. You'll see a fresher, smoother, and healthier look. So go on, take the toner test!
