    Default Toners

    Does anybody have some good suggestions for a toner?

    I use the Nivea Moisturizing Toner right now, but all it says it does it "refresh your skin". So I'm also using the Aveeno foaming face wash with toner in it, but idk how well it's working.


    I need something new that also works well.

    Witch Hazel works wonders for me. It manages to clean my pores as well as tighten them (even after exfoliating) and makes the skin beautifully smooth.
    But then my skin tends to react to any other product out there, so I can't use most 'brand name' products...

    I never have used a toner & never will. I've found the best thing for my skin is rosewater. There is enough alcohol in it as a perservative to work as a toner.

    What are you trying to achieve?

    Rosewater! I love that idea -is it at the drugstore?

    Call me cheap... the baking isle of your local super market!
    Cheap as chips, has healing properties from the rose oils in it, is delicate on the skin. Makes the best cleanser I've ever used.

    Sometimes when I have small pimples, they discolor my skin for a while. I'm trying to tone those down to blend with my skin more. They're not too bad, but I usually cover it with makeup.

    I've heard a lot about Witch Hazel and rosewater. I'm going to try both and see if they work. I'm one of those people who think that only chemicals can do a good job, but I'm scared of the damage they'll do to my skin.

    I never used anything other than soap, hot water & a flannel for years. And a mild moisturiser.
    Skin reacts to too heavy chemicals, maybe of my friends with greasy skin stopped using heavy cleansers for a while & their skin balanced itself out.
    You're a teenager aren't you? Don't use anything too strong unless your doctor perscribes it. Its probably hormonal skin, why not see a facialist?

    Novice, do you know much about oily skin? I have issues (always have) with oily skin on my forehead, nose, and sometimes my chin. It bothers me so bad! I can't live with out my face powder. I'm going to try the rosewater. TIA

    I'm remain a fan of diluted apple cider vinegar as a toner.

    And Novice, I don't think I've ever seen rosewater in the baking aisle at a supermarket. Really? I use a rosewater spray on my face on occasion but it costs me $20 a bottle.

    ^^ Its next to the orange water... Best place to get it is a shop that caters for Turkish/Indian cooking.

    MsChiff - sorry, no, my skin is really dry & acidic... (with rosiacia & an oliest strip in the middle...). I recommended rose water to a friend who did have oily skin & she liked it - but it took a little while for her skin to get use to it & stop producing so much sebum, etc.

    hahahaa! OK, point taken! Erm... you know on the "proper" baking isle with flour & yeast & stuff - not near the packet-mix baking products, they don't count!

    Think Martha Stewart not Sara Lee....

    I'm super oily. I don't usually use toner, my old derm was against it for oily skin, said if I stripped my oil mantle that my skin would just keep producing more to make up for it.

    I swear by a couple of products- Clinique T Zone Shine Minimizer, MAC Blot Powder and Shiseido Oil Blotting Papers. These all really help with oil slicks.
