Since there are countless toners on the market, I do get asked which are worth the splurge. I use the SK-II and La Mer when my skin's condition requires them, but I have been most impressed with the new Equitance Brightening Toning Lotion. I love the overnight bag-friendly plastic bottle and the soothing formula.
The Equitance Brightening Toning Lotion ($50) is what I currently reach for both day and night. This refreshing formula balances and restores my skin after cleansing, making it perfect for dehydrated and sensitive skin. It also helps to smooth and repair flaky patches around my nose. No other product makes my skin look or feel quite as soft, which is why I often reach for the Toning Lotion after a drying clay mask or an irritating blackhead extraction! Most importantly, this toner better prepares my skin to absorb and improve the efficacy of the serums and creams I apply thereafter, so I never skip this step. The Equitance Brightening Toning Lotion is suitable for all skin types, but it's a must have for achieving plump and brightened skin!
