My All Time Favorite Toners

Hello Friends!

Since it's offically summer, I wanted to share my favorite toners with you. When it's hot and humid, as it usually is in NYC, the toner brings the cleansed skin moisture and exfoliation that we need to keep it clean and clear. I am going to give you a quick overview of my favorite toners.

The Body Deli Cucumber Juice Elixir
First, my face loves this toner. It really drinks it. There is no other way for me to explain it. It is only $26.00 and it is made out of pure raw ingredients - ionized water, to aloe vera, chamomile, comfrey, nettle, dandelion and some other raw and healthy ingredients. This toner is very refreshing, soothing, and definitely hydrates the skin. The Cucumber Juice Elixir is also perfect for cooling your skin when you were out in the sun.

The Simply Divine Botanicals Gypsy Rose Tea Toner
I've used this toner for the last 6 years, and it is simply divine! It is only $29.95 and it is a natural toner/astringent that’s based on organic apple cider vinegar. According the company's website's description, the recipe was inspired by a 1500-year old formula made by Gypsies for the Queen of Hungry. The blend is infused for 6 weeks. The toner is very refreshing and is definitely effective. It works wonders on keeping oily skin feeling fresh, but does not dry out your skin at all, so it will work if your skin is dry. I love it in the summer.

Yonka Paris Lotion for Normal to Oily Skin Toner
This toner is absolutely amazing. If your skin is dry, they have a similar product for different type of skin. It is $41.00, but the bottle is pretty big and lasts awhile. I love it throughout the year, but it is amazing in the summer, because of its immediate and refreshing qualities that it has. It really calms the sunburned and inflamed skin and I even use it as a compress once in a while for an area of the skin that needs its properties asap.
I am totally addicted to its smell, which works for both genders. Essential oils of lavender, geranium, rosemary, cypress and thyme make this a must have in my house.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
I already wrote about this mist in one of my earlier posts here. Even though it is not officially a toner, you spray your skin after it is cleansed or you can spray the skin when it needs to be refreshed, so I think it qualifies to be in this category :) It is $24.00 and it is worth every penny. It is balancing, restorative and definitely hydrating. It's smell is to die for and I absolutely love it!

The Body Deli Hydra Mist
This mist is amazing and even though it has a pump, it works well for traveling because the bottle comes with a little piece of protection. It is very hydrating, and it is amazing for summer's weather. It is full of nutrients and it's raw ingredients are absolutely amazing. I even recommend using it after you apply your moisturizer. It is a little pricey, $55.00, but I think it lasts awhile, so it is worth it. Give this one a try, if you are looking for a very potent mist that you can also grab when travelling - this one is perfect!

The Terressentials Organic Flower Therapy Exfoliating Facial Toner
I found this toner when reading some magazine or an article, when they were reviewing skin care products. This toner won the Best Toner Award in 2008. Now, it not very accessible in NYC (even though they sell it in some states, including CA), but I buy it online from the website, 4 bottles at a time, since it is worth it. It is $16.75, and it is another toner that my skin "drinks." It reduces blotchiness and brings your skin a glow. It is suitable for normal to oily skin, but I think it works for every skin type. This toner is really pure - hibiscus, green tea, aloe vera juice, and various other essential oils.

Ok. If you are looking for new toners, I hope you will find this review helpful. Always feel free to reach out, since I feel like I tried way too many products and might have a suggestion or two ;)

As a disclaimer, all the products that were featured were purchased by me. This is my personal opinion :)
