15 best toners

Discover a toner that not only keeps skin clean but works that bit harder to protect and nourish 

Toners used to be a refreshing sweep of something vaguely astringent to remove any remaining cleanser and leave skin feeling squeaky clean.

But beauty brands have upped their game in recent years and now offer toners with added skin-transforming benefits. Modern ones like Nars can brighten, This Works helps remove age spots, Ole Henriksen minimises pores, Chantecaille soothes and heals, while Bliss intensely hydrates. We've tried and tested these, and a whole host more, to bring you the best. We guarantee there's something for all skin types.
