The toner step (post cleanse, pre serum) in the skincare regimen have evolved from the bracingly caustic Sea Breeze variety to a gentle, hydrating mist. Gone is the cotton wool step at extra deep cleaning, we're now seeing a crop of these nourishing sprays that by keeping the face damp, helps the serum penetrate and perform more effectively.
My favorite of these so far is Josh Rosebrook's Hydrating Accelerator. Aloe water is the principal ingredient, followed by skin feeding oils and good-for-you extracts like Bilberry, Slippery Elm, Calendula Flowers, and Green Tea. If you're too lazy for moisturizer, this is a helpful product to have on hand. I love it both before and after workouts. Plus it has vanilla and marshmallow root extract, so each spritz lightly exudes a comforting dessert aroma.
