What does a toner actually do?

Rooibos toner

New generation facial toners ...they do so much more than refresh your skin - they have real skin-care benefits, leaving your skin smooth, glowing and ready for your moisturiser.

So, what is toner?
A toner is a fast-penetrating liquid that delivers skin a quick hit of hydration and helps remove residual dead cells from the surface of the skin. Think of toner as prep for your pores.

When should I use it?
Cleanse thoroughly to prepare the skin to absorb the skin-beneficial ingredients in the toner. Apply after cleansing in both your day and night-time routine.

How should I apply it?
Dispense toner the Classic Toner onto a cotton pad and gently wipe it around your face, working outwards from the nose and paying special attention to the forehead, cheeks and chin area. Spritz the Advantage Misting Toner over the Face and neck area.

Why you shouldn’t skip it
A toner is the final step in a cleansing process. Wiping your face with a toner helps clear stubborn dirt and oils from your pores. They are important for balancing your skin’s acidity levels after cleansing. They treat certain skin concerns – our Classic Toner is extra soothing and the Advantage Misting Toner counteracts the effects of pollution.

Both our Rooibos Toners contain Witch Hazel to tighten pores. The Classic Toner helps protect and balance the skin.  Apply a small amount on cotton wool or tissue and gently wipe over face and neck after cleansing. The Advantage Misting Toner is enriched with Everlasting and Daisy extracts to help revive radiance and counteract the ageing effects of atmospheric pollutants. Sprits this on your skin throughout the day for extra protection against environmental stresses.
