Always shake your toner thoroughly before use to disperse ingredients. Select the appropriate toner for your skin type. A toner will remove any remaining traces of cleanser and act as an astringent, cleaning and reducing the size of the pores and wrinkles preventing dirt and dust particles from entering which could lead to sluggish, dull skin and breakouts. Toners also freshen the skin and Melanie’s garden toners contain plant extracts, vitamins and essential oils to nourish the skin. None of our toners will strip the skin of its natural oils as many other toners do but instead work in harmony with your skin. Melanie's Garden toners are alcohol free.
