It’s an oldie but a goodie: The gentle, all-natural liquid (which does the trick with just two ingredients: witch hazel and naturally derived alcohol) doesn’t sting while sapping sweat and oil. We even like to dab it on lightly with a cotton ball midday to help degrease our complexions without dulling our glow (or disturbing our perfectly sculpted contouring job).
More treatment than toner, this reviving formula is laced with lipohydroxy acid, a kinder form of salicylic acid that you’ll find in this brand, says L.A. dermatologist Jessica Wu. “It unclogs pores, refines skin texture, and helps fade acne scars.”
Full of salicylic and hyaluronic acids, plus glycerin, this tricked-out toner acts more like a gentle exfoliator that "makes skin feel smooth and refreshed," says N.Y.C. dermatologist Jeffrey Weinberg.
"Both the glycolic and salicylic acid exfoliate the skin and reduce oil that clogs pores," says New Orleans dermatologist Mary Lupo, who also commended this toner's pleasant smell and quick-drying properties.
The zinc and salicylic acid in this milky-white astringent make skin glow by removing dirt, oil and dead skin cells. "It leaves skin taut and plump without chapping like other toners," says dermatologist Robert Buka of N.Y.C.
