The benefits of using a Facial Toner

Reasons why you should incorporate a toner in your skincare routine


Have you ever wondered what the purpose of a facial toner is, and if it really is a necessary step in your skincare routine? This powerful product is often-overlooked and could be the core step that's missing from your regime to achieve a healthy-looking glow that you've been longing for. 


What a toner does:

  • Provides hydration
  • Removes excess oil & dirt
  • Minimises enlarged pores
  • Protects skin from environmental stressors
  • Prevents break outs
  • Aids moisture absorption
  • Restores the skin's PH level


How and when to use

There are many ways in which a toner can improve your skins overall health. The most effective way is to use directly after cleansing as it helps to close pores, which in effect reduces the amount of bacteria that enter them. Your skin also needs a water-based product prior to applying serums and face creams in order to prepare the skin to maximise the absorption of these products. 

Spritzing your face with a toning mist during the day is another great way to give your skin an extra boost of hydration- and there's no better feeling than a spritz of toner on your face to cool down when you're on-the-go during a hot day!  



Choosing the right one for you

It’s important to choose a toner that is right for your skin type, as well as making sure it is free from alcohol, parabens and artificial fragrances as these will dry out your skin and can cause irritation. We recommend opting for a natural product that contains nourishing ingredients that aim to hydrate and calm the skin such as Aloe Vera and Rose Water. All Lulu & Boo’s toners contain powerful active elements that ensure real results and will naturally tone, balance and heal to enhance your skin's complexion.


For problem & oily skin we recommend Lavender & Lemon Toning Mist. This refreshing toner is full of anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties such as healing Witch Hazel and soothing Aloe Vera with a zesty lemon fragrance from the lemon essential oil that also hosts a world of benefits for those with acne prone skin. It is a gentle toner that comforts, softens, soothes and aids moisture absorption. 


If you have dry, sensitive or mature skin opt for our gentle Rose & Chamomile Toner. Dry skin tends to look dull and fine lines become more apparent, but when you stay hydrated with a toner, skin becomes more supple and creates an overall more youthful appearance. The Rose Water in this toner is incredibly beneficial as its antioxidant properties help to strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues, as well cleaning pores and soothing sensitive skin.





Both of these toners are vegan, made with plant powered organic ingredients, presented in recyclable glass bottles and made in small batches.
