Having a great toner in your everyday beauty routine is key, simply because there are a plethora of benefits that come with the use. Toner deeply cleans your skin even after you wash your face by removing excess oil and dirt, helps balance pH levels in your skin, tighten your pores, and it gives your skin an extra level of hydration for a gorgeous, healthy glow. There are different toners for the variety of skincare needs based on the ingredients included in each, and while it can be super helpful it can sometimes be overwhelming to determine which is the best option for you. After having tried my hand at a few different toners, I found myself once again surfing through beauty blogs for the next best thing. Boy, did I find it.
I came across an article about the benefits of using a hyaluronic acid toner with a list of some of the top faves--The Ordinary being the one that caught my eye. While the name had me skeptic at first, after doing some research on the formula itself, I can see why a toner that includes it is so highly recommended.
Hyaluronic Acid can attract up to 1,000 times its weight in water--combine that with the power of Vitamin B5 and you get a mixture that provides your skin with ultimate multi-depth hydration. Enter The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid Toner--the latest cult fave that I was finally able to get my hands on after having been waitlisted for a month.
Let alone the fact that this incredible product only costs $7, there are so many other things to love about it. It is ultra-pure, completely vegan, and cruelty-free (shout out to guilt-free products!). A huge benefit for me being that I have a deathly nut allergy is that the formula is also nut-free. It works well with all skin types, and focuses strongly on combatting dryness. Just after one use, I've already noticed incredible results and changes in my skin.
After washing my face, I immediately apply a few droplets across my skin while its still damp and I gently dab the toner in. I follow up with my moisturizer and rosewater spray, and voila! I use the formula in both my morning and night routine. I've noticed that my skin isn't nearly as oily during the day, my pores are more refined and tightened, and most importantly my skin has become so much more radiant, free of any blemishes or dark spots.
