If you've opted out of using an exfoliating toner in your skincare regimen, here's why you should start: Many options, such as the Versed Skin Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Toner, contain chemical exfoliants that shed dead skin cells and remedy dark spots, acne scars, and fine lines, leaving the complexion glowing and smooth. Even more impressive, an exfoliating toner can help balance your skin's pH level, which determines your overall skin health.

As Dr. Melanie Palm, board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon in San Diego, California previously told InStyle, "The use of a toner can have the added benefit of mechanical removal of skin debris. Simple application of a skincare product such as a serum does not lift off dull skin cells."

The Weekend Glow Daily Brightening Toner is the one for the job; specifically formulated to reduce stubborn dark spots, post-acne marks, and pesky wrinkles, the treatment contains a four-acid complex with natural skin-brighteners, such as kojic and azelaic acid, AHAs, and bearberry extract (the brand describes it as "an alternative to hydroquinone, a powerful brightening ingredient that can have adverse effects for darker skin tones"), and last but not least, vitamin C.

Like most products with chemical exfoliants, it's advisable to stick to two to three applications per week to let your skin adjust to the formulation. With that being said, some reviewers claim they've experienced little to no irritation since their first use. Instead, many have referred to it as "glowing skin in a bottle," and "incomparable" to any other toner they've used before.

"I just added this toner to my skincare routine and it's been a game changer," wrote one shopper. "I've had a few spots of hyperpigmentation on my right cheek, and they are fading!! I've tried other products and this has made the most noticeable and immediate change. I also appreciate the fact that this toner is gentle on the skin. Overall, this is a great addition to any skincare routine. Must have!"

"I've tried every toner out there for my acne-prone skin to help with breakouts, especially in the summer with the heat and makeup," shared another. "This toner not only cleared my skin but kept it clean and glowing throughout the day. When I ran out and stopped using it for a few days, my skin broke out again. Just ordered three more! THANK YOU VERSED!"
