What Does Toner Do? 

Toner is an elusive product for some. It's not a cleanser, not a moisturizer, though it actually both cleanses AND assists in moisturizing.

After cleansing, there are traces of dirt, oil and makeup left on our skin, and especially in pores. Toning helps to lift these impurities and restore the skin's acidic state - which is not a bad thing! PH balanced skin needs acidity to absorb moisture. Toner helps skin "prep" for moisturizer, and toned skin will actually absorb more.

Our Sailor Sea Mist Refreshing Toner is made with organic witch hazel, aloe vera and white willow bark which treats and prevents blemishes. Cucumber extract cools and soothes while basil essential oil lends a clean fresh scent.
