Toners are a liquid that you can apply with a cotton pad between cleansing and moisturizing your skin. They will


+ remove any excess oil or dirt left behind by your cleanser

+ refresh and rejuvenate your skin

+ tighten pores (hence, the "toning" aspect)

+ add moisture


If you have oily skin, blackheads, acne etc. toner is a must. However, a lot of toners have alcohol, so they can be very harsh and drying for skin - I would highly recommend using a toner that is not alcohol based. I like Shiseido's Hydro Nourishing Softener:

Toners are an important step to be used immediately following cleansing your face to get rid of any leftover bacteria and cleanse your pores completely.  Bliss Daily Detoxifying Facial Toner is a gentle toner that smoothes, moisturizes and provides antioxidant protection against smoke, smog, and other environmental toxins.  Using this toner will help to get your skin ready to make your serums, moisturizers and cosmetics work better so you get the best bang for your buck.  You can find this very good toner at:
