I’m trying this out instead of my usual toner – MAC Marine-Bright Formula Softening Lotion – a brightening lotion that softens, conditions, smoothes and leaves skin supple, more clarified and brightened. I don’t waste a cotton pad for this – I just pour a small amount on the palm of my hands and apply to my face after cleansing. I have gotten used to adding a toner before embarking on the rest of my routine and I can really tell the difference, compared to when I’m not using a toner. My skin is way more supple than without. So if you haven’t tried a toner yet – give it a go.
