Toner 101: A Comprehensive Guide to Toner with Round Lab

Jul 14, 2023

If you're new to the world of skincare or simply curious about toners, you've come to the right place.

In this blog post, we'll cover the basics of what toner is, how to use it, and introduce you to the diverse range of toners offered by Round Lab, Korea's most popular skincare brand. Let's dive in!


What is Toner?

Toner is a liquid skincare product that is typically applied to the face after cleansing and before moisturizing.

It is designed to remove any remaining traces of dirt, oil, and makeup while balancing the skin's pH levels. Toners can vary in composition, offering different benefits depending on the ingredients used.

How to Use Toner

  1. Dab it on: Gently tap a bit of toner on your fingertips, then dab it on target areas. This method is ideal for spot treating specific concerns, such as acne breakouts or dry patches. It allows the toner to penetrate deeply into the problem areas.

  2. Spritz it on: Mist toner evenly over your face with closed eyes for a refreshing spritz. This method is perfect for those who prefer a quick and easy application. It provides a light and even distribution of the toner, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and revitalized.

  3. Cotton pad swipe: A fan favorite! Soak a cotton pad with toner and sweep it across your face for total coverage. This method ensures that every part of your face receives the toner's benefits. The cotton pad also helps to gently exfoliate and remove any impurities lingering on the skin's surface.

  4. Palm patting: Pour a little toner on your palms and pat it onto your face with upward motions. This method is suitable for those who prefer a more hands-on approach. It allows for better absorption as the toner is warmed by your hands and gently pressed into the skin.

  5. Sheet mask delight: Soak a sheet mask in toner and let it work its magic. This method combines the hydrating properties of the toner with the sheet mask's benefits. It provides an intensive treatment, leaving your skin nourished and glowing.

  6. Layer it up: Apply multiple layers of toner for extra hydration. After each layer dries, apply another one. This method is particularly beneficial for those with dry or dehydrated skin. It helps to replenish moisture levels and create a protective barrier, preventing moisture loss throughout the day.

  7. DIY mask fun: Mix toner with clay or honey, or our Dokdo Mud Pack to create a custom mask. Apply the mixture to your face, leave it on for a designated time, and rinse off. This method allows you to tailor the mask to your specific skincare needs, whether it's detoxifying, brightening, or soothing.
