Toners We Love
What would we do without toner? The beauty essential is a life-changer once you start using it. It gives acne-prone and oily skin that extra-deep clean that makes your skin feel tingly and oh-so-thoroughly cleansed like no other product can. Aside from refreshing tired skin, toner also restores skin back to its natural pH balance after face washing. Sign us up!
Simple Soothing Facial Toner
A highly-rated discount beauty favorite, Simple’s Soothing Facial Toner is just as it says: a toner that will gently soothe skin. Ideal for sensitive skin, this toner is light, fresh and packed full of skin-enhancing vitamins.
Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic
Oh florals. We love them in scents, prints, and even our toners too! Liz Earle’s divinely floral scented skin tonic is one of the more moisturizing toners. With its alcohol-free formula as well as aloe vera, vitamin E, cucumber and chamomile, it’s naturally hydrating and ideal for keeping that skin plump and cleansed.
Thayer’s Original Witch Hazel With Aloe Vera Astringent
We here at Haute Appetite are absolutely obsessed with witch hazel. The natural astringent, derived from the plant of the same name, it the cure-all for so many minor skin irritations. Our favorite is Thayer’s Original Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera. The aloe keeps the the toner from drying out our skin and the healing properties of witch hazel keep our skin irritation free.
Clinique Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion
We used to watch our mothers use Clinique when we were little and now we totally get why: the tried and true brand works time after time. While it’s called a lotion, this toner is very much just that – a toner. Used after face washing, it sweeps away any excess dead skin left behind (which can cause acne!) and creates visibly clearer and calmer skin. Thank you, mom!
Clarins Toning Lotion
While most toners are geared toward oily and acne-prone skin, that doesn’t mean those with normal to dry skin should be left out of the toning equation. Enter Clarins Toning Lotion made especially with normal to dry skinned babes in mind. This alcohol-free and allergy tested formula soothes and moisturizes dry skin and also resets its pH balance.
