How do you apply toner? πŸ’§

I'm always very curious of how other people apply their skincare products, especially toner so let's chat!! πŸ’§I personally apply hydrating toners with my hands and apply the toner section by section on my face. πŸ’§With toners that contain chemical exfoliants, I use a cotton round because that works better at wiping off the dirt and dead skin that the toner is removing. How do you apply your toner? Do you have multiple ways of applying them or do you have one method that works perfectly just for you??

I use my hands and just be careful not to spill it, so I take it a step at a time and I pat on to my face gently and let it slightly air dry and start applying other skincare products in my routine.πŸ’–

I think we apply toners the same way πŸ’– I'm always super focused when applying toner because I don't want any product going to waste by falling onto the floor

i usually apply all my toners with my hands. I used to do it with a cotton pad but honestly I'm too lazy now to use one. Sometimes I put watery hydrating toners in a spraying bottle and I use it like facial mist bc it would be so messy if I only use my hands

I actually put one if my hydrating waters into a spray bottle as well because I kept dropping product πŸ™ˆ I'm also a bit lazy to reach for cotton pads tbh and I feel like they absorb all the goodness in my toners

I've never actually tried reusable cotton pads. I'm kind of conflicted about them because I don't want to reuse material on my skin πŸ˜•

I apply hydrating toners always on damp skin using hands. I gently pat it for it to absorb quicker and I used to apply exfoliating toners the same way as hydrating, but I might try the cotton pad version tooπŸ™πŸ½
