What is the difference between a toner and a tonic?

A toner and a tonic, that's the same thing, right? Or not? They are quickly confused but it is certainly not the same. In this blog post we would like to explain the difference between a toner and a tonic.

What is a toner?

You use a toner after cleansing your skin. A toner does not clean your skin, but it does remove the last remnants of your cleanser. This prepares your skin for the next step in your skincare routine. You can think of a toner as a kind of prime layer with a watery texture. A toner ensures a healthy moisture balance because of the antioxidants. Make sure you choose a toner that suits your skin type for the best results.

How often should you use a toner?

For best results, use a toner twice a day after cleansing your face. You can apply a toner with your fingers or even better with a cotton pad. Make sure the toner is well absorbed before applying the next step in your skincare routine.

What is a tonic?

You use a tonic after cleansing your face and it ensures that your skin is degreased. After using a tonic, your skin will feel extra fresh and clean. Any remaining makeup residue is removed and clogged pores are reduced. Especially if you suffer from oily skin, a tonic is a godsend. Your skin is actually only completely clean if you have used a cleanser and then a tonic.

How do you use a tonic?

You apply the tonic to your face with your hands or with a cotton pad, spread over your entire face and neck. You don't have to rinse the tonic with water! The result is fresh and clean skin.
