  • Astringent: Toner works as an astringent to remove excess oil and tone pores after cleansing  
  • Refreshing: Toner can refresh the skin after cleansing  
  • Spritzing: Toner can rehydrate and brighten   
  • Priming: Toner primes the skin for the next steps of your skincare routine and can help to set makeup
