First of all, it’s a great way to apply toner with a cotton wool as this helps remove any residual dirt and grime, especially crucial if you don’t double cleanse everyday.

Still need more convincing? Here are our top picks for the best toners that not only soothe skin instantly but also smells and feels absolutely divine.
