A Facial Toner That Won't Dry the Skin Out

What We're Sweet On: A Nondrippy, Nondrying Facial Toner



It's quite rare to find a facial toner that won't dry out the skin, and it's probably even more rare to find one that won't cause a slippy, drippy mess. With Elizabeth Grant's The Socializer Daily Tone ($20) neither problem is an issue. The mild, non-alcohol astringent is gel based, so it squeezes right onto a cotton ball — and not on your floor — with ease. A few swipes on the face visibly removes excess dirt and oils without leaving a tight, dry feeling behind. Instead, you're left with a soft, refreshed mug. Use on its own morning or night, or prep with the brand's gel-to-foam Daily Cleanse ($20). It's a great way to tone up; no free weights necessary.
