If I am not drenched in sweat after my morning workout, I didn't work hard enough. This logic has always served me from a fitness standpoint, but from an I-have-to-make-it-to-work-on-time stance, it's always proven to be a bottleneck and caused my skincare routine to suffer.
In order to make it into the office on time, I'm used to running to the locker room and rushing through my shower. I oftentimes exit the shower with my forehead and neck still showing a tiny bit of shine from sweat that my one-step cleanser wasn't able to remove — that is, until I started bringing Mario Badescu Witch Hazel and Lavender Toner ($14) with me. Splashing some of the purple-hued liquid onto a cotton round and patting it on my face removes all of the excess oil without ever stripping the dry areas of my complexion.
The end result is squeaky clean skin without any trace of residual oils. That's because this toner is equipped with witch hazel — a natural astringent — and lavender to soften skin. It is an eraser for all signs of having just gone through a 90-minute HIIT session.
See the toner, ahead.
