Toner gets a bad rap for being the expendable part of our skincare regimens—but not now. In a pinch, we’re more likely to skip the moisturizer step than we are to bypass this Pore-Reducing Toner from Paula’s Choice. Not only does it make our enlarged pores look normal-sized, but it calms redness and provides a high dose of skin-repairing antioxidants. We’re sorry we ever doubted you, toner.
How it Works
In the dog days of summer, this skin-balancing formula is enough to render our moisturizer redundant. It sops up excess oil (and lingering makeup) while ceramides heal dry skin, too. Vitamin C defends against free radicals and helps skin repair itself naturally. Bonus: It’s fragrance-free.
How to Use
Morning and night, soak a cotton pad in toner and sweep over clean, dry skin.
