Okay, so when it comes to toners, this is a necessary step in any skincare routine.
I’ve tried a variety of different toners and they help to prep the skin for the rest of your skincare routine, while also getting rid of makeup, dirt, oil, you name it. Occasionally I like to swap out my regular toner for an exfoliating toner pad, which typically contain various acids to exfoliate, tone, and brighten the skin.
I’ve used a few different toner pads through the years and found them to be really beneficial for my skin. Some of these work similar to a peel that you would get at a derm clinic, but at a lower and safer level for at-home use. If this sounds like something that you want to incorporate into your skincare routine, then there are so many amazing options available right now, at all different price points.
I’ve recently gotten a few different formulas sent over, so if you are interested in these pads, then keep reading for my top three picks!
First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads
When it comes to these toner pads, the First Aid Beauty ones are definitely some of my favourites.
These Facial Radiance Pads (C$48), which comes in a jar with 60 pads, is a daily treatment pad that contains lactic and glycolic acid to gently exfoliate, tone, and brighten the skin. These pads are safe for all skin types (even sensitive skin) and you can use them either once or twice a day (I like to use it at night personally).
These pads also contain cucumber and Indian Gooseberry to tone skin, as well as lemon peel and liquorice root to leave your skin with a beautiful glow. With regular use, you will notice that your skin looks smoother and brighter. You may also find that your makeup goes on more effortlessly and flawless.
Tula Balancing Act Purifying & pH Balancing Toner Pads
Brand new from Tula are their Balancing Act Purifying & pH Balancing Toner Pads ($36 USD), which were just released this month!
These pads, which comes in a jar with 60 pads, help to tighten the look of pores and lift impurities. These contain probiotics and probiotics to help balance the skin’s natural pH levels after cleansing.
The formula contains witch hazel to tighten the look or pores, as well as lactic acid and PHA to purify the skin without stripping it of moisture. These work to combat dullness, breakouts, and improve uneven skin tone. These pads are made of bamboo fibres and an alcohol-free formula that is gentle, yet powerful on the skin. They also have a refreshing mint scent which is a nice treat whether you are applying it in the morning or at night before bed.
Don’t forget, score 15% off your Tula order with code SHAYNA! With my code, it brings these pads down to $30.60.
Dr. Belmeur Amino Clear Peeling Pads
Finally, from one of my favourite K-beauty brands, Dr. Belmeur has their Amino Clear Peeling Pads (C$34), which is a container of 60 pads which are infused with amino acid to help remove excess oil, dead skin cell, and impurities to give you a smoother complexion.
Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, these are meant for daily use (for sensitive skin the brand recommends only two to three times a week) and they act as a low-irritant peel.
These pads feature a gauze side for intense care of dull skin with excess dead skin cells (not suitable for sensitive skin), and an embossed side for a gentle peeling effect. They contain serine (amino acid) to promote exfoliation and provide skin with a lightening effect, as well as allantoin to soothe and condition skin and panthenol, which is a low-irritant moisturizer.
Use these daily for a nice treatment which will leave you with smoother skin. They also feature a nice scent of rosemary, bergamot, and eucalyptus.
If you are looking to up your skincare routine this year, I recommend that you look into one of these toner/treatment pads to incorporate into your routine. Any of these choices would be a great option for your skin, especially since they are great for all skin types.
