My first Mila Moursi product and best toner I've ever used. I never go without toner and this one lives up to the product claims. Surprisingly, a bottle lasts a while, so that justifies the price.
The 90s sort-of ruined toners. I'll admit that I did not use one up until about 2 years ago, actually. For awhile all I could think of was the ads for "toners," which were really astringents my Seventeen Magazines growing up. They were harsh and full of alcohol and made the skin feel just awful - even in those days. Now that I'm a bit older and much more well-informed, I'm so glad that toners have come back around and are even more advanced than their predecessors (Indie Lee's CoQ10 is another fave).
Mila's cleansing toner, however, is the holy grail of toners. It not only pH balances the skin, but it gives an instant firmness. And when I say firmness, I'm not talking about that squeaky clean tight feeling but firm as in the skin feels clean, healthy and strong. When I put on my serums afterwards, I don't have the feeling of them sitting on the top of my skin as the toner really helps to have these products penetrate into the dermis.
While I do recommend using Mila's full regimen for optimal results, I would say if you are using a current skin care routine that is working for you but still want to amp it up a bit, definitely try her cleansing toner and refining lotion - these two alone will make any other products in your regimen hyper-active and effective.
