Well-formulated toners are designed to cleanse and reset pH balance after using alkaline cleansers. Our toner range focusses on hydrating and fortifying your skin's natural barrier to keep skin feeling smooth. They also help to prime the skin, preparing for the next steps of your skincare routine.

With a range of fantastic K-Beauty toners handpicked by the Skinsider team, you'll soon find that doing the prep work has never been easier.

If you don't already use one, toners will change everything about how you use skincare products, and all for the better. For anyone out there who may be unfamiliar with Korean toners or know what type to get, here are common questions we're often asked about our toner range.

What can K-Beauty toners do for me?

Toners are often confused with moisturisers, so it is important to know what a toner can do for you. If you get a decent one, you have a skincare product which helps hydrate skin, balances pH (remember, exfoliators and cleansers my affect your skin pH) and gets rid of those last bits of dirt and bacteria cleansers cannot catch.

If you have a particular skincare routine, but sometimes feel your skin isn't quite where you want it before using a serum or moisturising, you may want to start using toner.

What brands are known for K-Beauty toners?

The popularity of K-Beauty toners is hard to match. Anytime we get new toners in, and there's a buzz about them, they sell out quickly. Some of the more popular brands the Skinsider family loves include:

  • Klairs
  • Benton
  • iUNIK
  • Pyunkang Yul
  • Lagom
  • Real Barrier

When should I be using a toner?

You'll want to have a decent toner as part of your routine when you're looking to improve how your skin feels after exfoliating, and before using any essences.

A quick question to ask yourself anytime you think you need toner is "Have I finished cleansing?" If you have, you can tone. If you haven't, leave it be just yet.

Which toners are the most popular?

Our most popular toners include:

Aqulabo KomBucha First Breath-Like Toner
• Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Essence Water
Blithe Vital Treatment 9 Essential Seeds
D'Alba Piedmont White Truffle Vital Spray Serum
LAGOM Cellus Mist Toner
• Klairs Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner (180ml)

Can toners help combat environmental stressors?

Toners have a really important action most people tend to overlook. While many think a toner is needed to help skin feel smooth, it is also trying to remove those pesky little bits of makeup and dirt.

And when you're concerned about your exposure to environmental stressors like air pollution, UV rays, or even being stuck beside air conditioning while working, a reliable toner can help clean those pores.

If you're looking to try out something new to help combat environmental factors, this By Wishtrend 2 Step Gentle Exfoliation Set is a good starting point.

Which toners are vegan-friendly?

It is still surprising in this day and age that those looking for vegan toners can struggle to find a good one, but we think we have it figured out. Some of the top-selling vegan toners we have include:

Aqulabo KomBucha First Breath-Like Toner
Aqulabo Mask Boosting Jelly Mist
Beauty of Joseon Ginseng Essence Water
• Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner

Are there any cleanser/toner hybrid products I can use?

Not everyone has the time to follow the 10 Step K-Beauty Routine to the letter. Sometimes you want a product that can help cleanse and tone simultaneously so you can get on with things.

If you're trying to optimise your skincare routine, something like By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water might work for you. It has excellent exfoliating properties, as well as helping balance your skin's pH levels before you use essence or serum.
