5 Toners That Can Benefit Combination Skin Types
Combination skin types know the difficulties associated with having to cater to two different skin types. Finding skin care products that can address both the oily parts of the face and dry parts of the face can prove particularly challenging. While you may already have a cleanser and moisturizer picked out, what’s lacking in your skin care routine could be a staple toner. To save you the effort of further trial and error, we handpicked five of our favorite toners—from the L’Oreal portfolio of brands—for combination skin types. Your new holy grail toner is just a few page scrolls away.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Toner
This gentle toner is perfect for refining your skin’s texture while also preparing your complexion to be moisturized. While it’s suitable for all skin types, we love this for combination skin as it both hydrates and comforts your skin. Formulated with squalene, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil and vitamin E, all traces of dirt and debris will be eliminated with just a few sweeps of a cotton pad.

SkinCeuticals Equalizing Toner
One of the biggest benefits of toner is that it can balance the skin after cleansing. Since some face washes can strip the skin of moisture, this Equalizing Toner can balance your skin’s pH levels while gently exfoliating dead skin cells to reveal a softer, smoother skin texture.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar Clarifying Solution Acne Toner
If you have combination skin that’s also prone to breakouts, you may want to reach for a toner that specifically targets clogged pores. We recommend the La Roche-Posay Effaclar Clarifying Solution. This powerful solution boasts salicylic and glycolic acids, and can help keep your pores free of dirt, grime, and cleanser residue.
Lancôme Tonique Confort
Combination skin types can also experience areas of dryness. On dry patches, sweep on a hydrating toner like Tonique Confort. Formulated with acacia honey, your skin will look fresher and feel softer and more comfortable.

Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol- Free Toner
Infused with whole calendula flowers and pure extract, this effective toner gently cleanses and soothes skin without using alcohol or harsh drying agents. This toner works well on normal to oily skin. You can sweep this liquid onto the entire surface of your face or solely on problem areas.
