What are toners for? What can they do? And does it matter whether you choose a mist, or more of an essence?

The answer is that the right toner is a multi-tasker. It might be that pore-refining sweep for oily skin. It might be a preparatory layer of liquid hydration to ensure your serums and creams work as hard as possible. It might be the best 'vehicle' through which to supply your skin with some nutrients it could really benefit from.

One of the easiest ways to get your head around toners is not to think about them as a 'second step' in your skincare routine - but rather, as part of your 'cleanse.' Cleansing and toning as one is like giving yourself a mini-facial every morning or evening - and as BEAUTY PIE founder and skincare expert Marcia Kilgore says: “ask any dermatologist or cosmetic chemist and they'll say the same thing: Good cleansing is a non-negotiable ‘STEP 1’ in your skincare routine." Marcia has paired-up some essential cleanser-and-toner duos according to your skin type. Simply find your 2-step solution below, then follow up with a serum and the best moisturiser for your skin type (here).
