10 Best Face Toners

10 Best Face Toners

If you are like us, then you will appreciate a good face toner. Face toners are used after cleansing the face with a cleansing milk or face wash, but before applying face treatments or creams. They remove the last traces of cleanser, tone and freshen the skin, plus prepare it for actives applied afterwards. At Nakin we produce natural skincare and are hugely passionate about it. We have spent years researching the best ingredients, so we know a thing or two about anti-ageing skincare products. Our criteria for selection are that the face toners are effective, natural and free from undesirable ingredients like parabens, silicones, PEGs, artificial colour and fragrance.

1. Nakin Purifying Face Toner £16.50

If you love face toners then we recommend trying this one. It offers a beautiful second cleanse that soaks skin in refreshing cleansing plant extracts. Great if you like your skin to be clean, soft and comforted then this face toner is for you. It is the best face toner because of the skin enhancing plant extracts which include hydrating hyaluronic acid, deep cleansing seaweed, toning witch hazel and calming aloe. This detoxing reviving blend clears skin after cleansing, for soft fresh comforted skin. Impurities are wiped away with the deep-down cleansing action, but skin is still balanced and calm. This Purifying Face Toner is amazing value and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. It has a very subtle floral scent and is made in the UK and cruelty free. The way to use a face toner is directly after cleansing skin with our face wash, or our amazing cleansing milk. Then follow with this brilliant face toner.

Our face toner is just one of our natural anti-ageing face cleansers and offers everything a good face toner should. It is designed to cleanse the skin further, removing any traces of makeup, dirt, or oil that your cleanser might have missed. It also helps to restore the skin's balance, tighten pores, and refresh the skin. Additionally, it provides an extra layer of protection by removing pollutants and reducing the penetration of impurities and environmental contaminants into the skin. Although it is for all skin types it still offers excellent hydration in the form of the hyaluronic acid, which provides skin plumping without any greasiness.  

2. Mun Anarose Hydrating Rose Toner £61

This is a nice toner for those with very dry skin that need hydration from more than a face oil, serum and face cream. It claims to balance the pH of skin after cleansing, so it might be good if you use quite a harsh cleansing product before the toner, and your skin needs to be bought back to balance. It has rosewater which is very kind to skin, and they say that the combination of rose, jasmine and daisy ingredients give a sensation to skin like the feeling of velvet flower petals.

3. Dr Alkatis Organic Herbal Toner £37

Herbs have lots of lovely properties for skin and this one is good for oily congested skin. It has aloe, chamomile and sea kelp which makes it quite an astringent toner. The word astringent means that it causes a contraction of the skin cells. Reviews said that it is cooling to skin and easily absorbed.

4. Josh Rosebrook Hydrating Accelerator £35

We included this toner as it contains lots of lovely natural ingredients including aloe, jojoba, carrot, marula, evening primrose, grape seed, sea buckthorn, hemp, borage, almond, sesame, goji, ashwagandha, turmeric, calendula, black cohosh, dandelion, foti, alfalfa, bilberry, rosemary, elderberry, raspberry, burdock, chamomile, rose hip, eyebright, beetroot, st john’s wort, hawthorne berry, chickweed, licorice, coriander, horse chestnut, lavender, red clover, olive, sage, thyme, vanilla, ylang ylang, rosemary, eucalyptus, bergamot  and carrot. It has a double action that is also meant to be a light moisturiser.

5. Kjaer Weis The Toner £73

This is an expensive option for a toner, as toners are generally more affordable. It does have some Chinese medicine focus as it contains yam root and aims to bring calm to sensitive skin. It also contains some nice essential oils like lavender and lemon balm.

6. Esse Sensitive Toner £42

This is specially made for sensitive skin because it contains probiotic and prebiotic ingredients that support a state of equilibrium in the skin’s microbiome. It also has hydrating and moisturising ingredients to improve skin hydration.

7. D' Alchemy Hydrating Dew Toner £35

This toner has a spray mist application which we know some people prefer. It contains different types of rose, glycerin and grapefruit peel oil. They work to tighten the pores, control sebum secretion, help with inflammation and soften skin.

8. The Organic Pharmacy Rose Facial Spritz Toner £28

This is another spritz dispenser face toner which utilises rose to freshen, hydrate, tone and calm. It is a small 100ml size so is designed to also be taken out and about in a handbag to use whenever skin needs a pick me up during the day or night.

9. Dr Hauschka Facial Toner £27

This brand has been around for decades and uses classic plant ingredients which they grow on their own farms. It is consistently high rated from people who have used it for years. The ingredients in this include anthyllis and witch hazel and it has been dermatology tested.

10. Inlight Floral Face Tonic £42

This is another toner that features rose as a key ingredient for the skin. Natural products are a huge passion for this skincare brand. As well as rose it contains chamomile, lavender, agave and grapefruit. It has good reviews and one commented that it has an earthy scent. This might not be the scent that everyone desires, but natural products made without artificial fragrance will always have more earthy scents.
