Yes, Body Toner Is a Thing— Here Are Our Favorites
There’s still a solid chance that body toner has yet to enter your lexicon, but it will. Increasingly trendy, this category of beauty products is not what you’d likely first assume. If your mind jumps straight to imagining products that help you look more fit, i.e. a way to tone without a trip to the gym, that’s a good guess. But it’s not quite right. In actuality, body toner refers to a product that works in a similar fashion to facial toner. Like facial toners, body toners can be used to improve skin tone and texture but on your body instead of your face. A key difference? Most body toners won’t be the liquid toners you’re used to seeing for your face. Body toners come in all forms—creams, lotions, serums, and even oils.
Now that you know what body toner is, click through for our picks of the best body toners—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—to start slathering below your neck.
Body Toner #1: Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk
Don’t you love the sound of a ‘harmonized skin tone’? Vichy’s Ideal Body Serum-Milk, which is formulated with hyaluronic acid and LHA, provides just that. The daily body serum can help improve tone, hydration, firmness, and smoothness for ideal skin quality.
Body Toner #2: Vichy Ideal Body Balm
Prefer a body balm to a serum? Then you’re in luck. The Vichy Ideal Body Balm features a similar formula to the Vichy Ideal Body Serum-Milk (both contain hyaluronic acid and LHA) and provides comparable benefits, with the product consistency and the increased level of hydration it offers being the main points of differentiation.
Body Toner #3: SkinCeuticals Body Retexturizing Treatment
As you know, exfoliating facial toners—featuring chemical exfoliants—are gaining popularity. And the very same trend is influencing body toners. Body scrubs no longer serve as the only way to slough your skin, with exfoliating gels and liquids taking over. The SkinCeuticals Body Retexturizing Treatment is a prime example, as the formula promotes exfoliation to retexture rough body surface skin and improve radiance.
Body Toner #4: Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion
Don’t mistake the Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Body Lotion for a basic body moisturizer. The lightweight lotion goes beyond the basics, helping to restore softness and tonicity for healthy-looking skin. Blended with Moroccan argan oil and enriched with antioxidants, it hydrates and reinforces skin’s defenses against free-radical damage.
