Mila Moursi pH Balancing Toner- Best Toners
Contrary to popular belief, skin Toner is not the first skincare product that can or should go out the window when you’re trying to stick to a strict budget. Using toner and using the right toner can mean all the difference between breakouts or not breakouts, shiny skin or glowing skin, subsequent serums and moisturizers working effectively or not. The right toner is meant to prep our skin after it’s been thoroughly cleansed. Prepped how? By making sure any and all traces of lingering dirt or make-up that might stubbornly cling onto our skin (despite having used a great cleanser) are actually wiped completely away.
In order for serums, lotions and moisturizers we layer on to be effective, there needs to be a blank, clean slate for those products to do their job. Besides behaving as a sort of secondary cleanser, a great toner will soften the skin’s surface. I liken this step to when we stretch prior to any major exercising, whether it’s running, power walking, dancing or whatever strenuous activity we may engage in. Without proper stretching, we could end up with serious injuries.
While we won’t end up with serious injuries without Toning, we can seriously reduce the efficacy of all those following skincare products we spend our hard-earned money on.
Mila Moursi’s pH Balancing Toner for normal to oily skin works hard on multiple levels and smells divinely of one of my favorite fruits- the deliciously tangy starfruit. A completely clear liquid, this toner glides on with no strange sensations and leaves just a sweet trace of that distinctive starfruit scent. You won’t notice anything different with your skin until about one month in, at which point you’ll notice how far fewer pores are getting clogged, how your serums, lotions and moisturizers seem to be really doing their job and how the overall appearance of your facial skin is well balanced, neither dry nor oily and less make-up stays on without touch-ups.
That’s the beauty of Mila Moursi products; they’re quietly working hard in the background around the clock the way we would expect of high end skincare that is touted by Hollywood celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox. If you’ve never heard of Mila Moursi it’s because she and her lineup of products and services are a well-kept secret among celebrity A-listers who probably don’t want the public knowing exactly what they’re doing to achieve seemingly perfect skin, but make no mistake about it- Mila Moursi is one of the greatest weapons to have in your skincare arsenal.
All Mila Moursi products are formulated and manufactured in France, one of the motherlands of superior skincare. This pH Balancing Toner also serves as an anti-aging agent besides its aforementioned roles as second cleanser and skin balancer. The longer I used this Toner, the happier I was with my skin.
Available for US $85 for a 200 ml/6.7 fl. oz. bottle, this will last you a solid 4 to 6 months depending on how much you use each time but I recommend definitely using this Toner twice a day with your regular skincare regimen, post cleansing and prior to layering any serums, lotions or moisturizers.
