Paula has always recommended toners that are well-formulated. Toners can be a great after-cleansing step to be sure you've removed all your makeup and to give skin essential skin repairing and healing ingredients in a light liquid base. When properly formulated, toners soothe skin and add hydrating ingredients to make skin softer, not to mention they're another leave-on source for antioxidants and other ingredients that help repair and restore skin.
How do I know which toner is right for me? Besides skin type, what are the main differences between Paula's Choice toners?

They are great as an adjunct to a more thorough cleansing routine, especially post-workout or in hot/humid climates. Even more significantly they go beyond the basics by offering skin benefits you can see and feel.
