Why do I Need to Tone my Skin?

Over the past few years, American women have become as beauty savvy as our Asian and European counterparts when it comes to understanding the need for specialized, multi-step beauty routines.

However, there is one step that still elicits a lot of blank stares at the beauty counter: the toner. Toner is an essential, yet often over-looked product, in a daily skincare routine. Read on to discover how the right toner can make a world of difference in your skin.


Even the most thorough cleanser will leave behind trace residues of makeup, grime and the cleanser itself. A toner will actually complete the cleansing process for your skin, ensuring you are starting with a perfectly purified canvas. At the same time, Sisley’s toners will also help bring back the balance to your skin after cleansing. If you think of your cleanser as shampoo, which inevitably lightly strips the hairs as it cleanses, a toner is like a conditioner for your skin; bringing balance and softness to back ideal levels. Finally, a toning formula developed to meet specific skin concerns will deliver even more benefits based on your needs.


Toner should be applied immediately after cleansing as the very next step in your routine. It’s used before more targeted skin care products because Sisley toners are specially formulated to prepare your skin to better accept the ingredients of your skin care products.


Toners are typically applied by drenching a cotton pad with the product and gently sweeping across the face and neck, avoiding the eye area.


Sisley has multiple options of toners because they are not meant to be “one size fits all”. Selecting the formula best-suited to your skin will enhance the rest of your routine and your overall results.


Grapefruit Toning Lotion is a gentle formula that minimizes pores and improves skin's appearance, leaving it fresh and clean.


Floral Toning Lotion contains extracts of rose, cornflower, and Witch Hazel to soothe and soften.


Purifying Re-Balancing Lotion with Tropical Resins purifies and softens the skin while working to tighten pores and reduce imperfections and shiny areas.


Phyto-Blanc Lightening Toning Lotion utilizes a combination of lemon, scutellaria and white mulberry extracts to create a brighter and more even appearance in the complexion.
