Do you need a toner in your skincare routine?

How to find the best toner for your skin type

Do you need a toner in your skincare routine?

3 Mins Read Arrow down icon

Do toners really work? It’s one of the beauty industry’s most frequently asked questions – from dermatologists, to beauty editors and skincare gurus.

So, do they work? In one word, yes. And do you need a toner in your skincare routine? Also, most likely, yes. 

Best combined with a cleanser, toners are arguably one of skincare’s most underrated – and yet most mighty – formulations. Quietly going about their business of pepping, protecting, plumping, purifying our skin.

Modest they may be, but ask any expert what toner does for skin and you may be surprised to find that, alongside cleansers, toners play a key part in many a successful 2-step skincare routine. So, do you need one in your line up?

How to find the best toner for your skin type

Best toner for oily & acne-prone skin types

BEAUTY PIE Dr Glycolic™

Ingredients: AHAs (Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid) BHAs (Salicylic Acid) & Niacinamide.

STEP 1: Super Healthy Skin Deep Purifying Clay Cleanser 

STEP 2: DR GLYCOLIC Multi-Acid (6.5%) Micro-Peeling Pads or DR GLYCOLIC Pore Purifying Glow Toner.

AM/PM? "DR GLYCOLIC Multi-Acid (6.5%) Micro-Peeling Pads can be used twice a week, for those with combination or dry skin, and daily for those with oily skin and/or a troublesome T-zone. Work up to the DR GLYCOLIC Pore Purifying Glow Toner, which is a little stronger, a little faster, and has a little more ‘pow’. Sourced from the best acid lab in Switzerland both will reduce clogging, make your pores look smaller, remove dead skin cells, and leave your skin glowing. Quickly sweep (either) across the skin after cleansing – you can follow with serum or an essence and then your moisturizer." – Marcia Kilgore, BEAUTY PIE Founder

Best toner for sensitive, rosacea-prone skin & pigmentation

Ingredients: Aloe Vera extract, Niacinamide, Vitamin C & Salicylic Acid.

STEP 1: Super Healthy Skin™ Hot Oil Double Cleansing Balm

STEP 2: ÜBER YOUTH™ Super Elixir Microbiome Mist-On Serum

AM/PM? For sensitive skin flare-ups, stick to a bare-bones AM + PM regime for two weeks, using gentle, non-stripping toners designed to support the skin barrier. “Use Uber Youth Microbiome Mist as your post-cleanse toner,” recommends Marcia Kilgore. This mist-on serum balances the microbiome, minimizing inflammation and tackling hyperpigmentation while – bonus – boosting collagen production for plumper, healthy-looking skin. 

Best toner for dry & normal skin

Beauty Pie Japanfusion Hydra Prep Lotion

Ingredients: Pombe Yeast (Fission-Y), Antioxidants (Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid) & Hyaluronic Acid

STEP 1: Super Healthy Skin™ Hot Oil Double Cleansing Balm

STEP 2: JAPANFUSION™ Hydra Prep Lotion

AM/PM? “A lot of members are obsessed with Japanfusion Hydra Prep Lotion,” reveals Marcia Kilgore, BEAUTY PIE Founder. “Maybe because it does the work of a toner, an essence, a light barrier repairing serum, and a pH balancer. Made at the best skincare lab in Japan, it's a micro-molecular essence, so quick and deep sinking, and it's infused with antioxidant Jabara Citrus and Delamyth Grape Extracts (for anti-aging and free radical neutralizing), plus has complexion de-stressing Pombo Yeast extract, so if you've just scrubbed, or peeled, or (gasp) sunburned, it's immediately and intensively soothing. First it softens, balances and hydrates – and then it turbo-charges every other product you put on top of it. Use it post cleansing or post-peeling, or post-scrub or face mask, before serum or moisturizer.”

Best toner for anti-aging

Ingredients: Ceramides, Pombe Yeast (Fission-Y), Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid & AHAs 

STEP 1: JAPANFUSION™ Pure Transforming Cleanser 

STEP 2: Triple Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Plump Dewy Skin Mist 

AM/PM? Made in Switzerland, BEAUTY PIE's Triple Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Plump Dewy Skin Mist contains 6% HYSILK™, HA BT, FUSE-HAa new-tech, uber moisture molecule that delivers a fusion of everyone’s favorite hydrator – Hyaluronic Acid – plus plumping, healthy-skin promoting Silicium. Put simply, it’s your moisture-maxing fast-track to refreshed, dewy, GLOWING skin – in one spritz.
