I use to get overwhelmed when I walk into a skincare/beauty store, or an online store. There are so many crèmes for your face. So many skin types, so many oils, use this, this is better, etc. It’s overwhelming and I end up just leaving and not solving the problem I went in for in the first place. Maybe that’s why I don’t have a very big makeup bag.
Toner has a bad reputation. I think it’s because it’s misunderstood. Oh, you don’t need toner, all it does is dry your skin out! This may have been the case a couple decades ago, but toner has come a long way.
Toners are not multipurpose, in the sense that they remove cleanser residue, balance your skin’s pH levels and prep your skin for the rest of your skin care products. If you ask me, the toner is helping you the best bang for your buck when using the rest of your skin care line. For example, when you use a hydrating toner, this will help the serum and moisturiser soak into your skin better. Getting your monies worth out of those products.
