It's an essential step you definitely you shouldn't skip!

While some believe that a toner is a skippable step, we believe that it is in fact one of the most important. Many people still think that the use of toner means swiping harsh and drying alcohol on the face, but that's not necessarily the case. There are tons of toners out there with stellar formulations that cleanse your skin, balance its pH level, and address your concerns—be it brightening dull skin or moisturizing dry skin, or perhaps even targeting unwanted cystic acne. Ahead are the 16 best toners and their benefits, so you can choose your best match:
