Looking for a toner for sensitive skin

  1. My skin is very sensitive, and tends to be dry, but I still break out (unfair!). The dermatologist suggested cleansing with Cetaphil and moisturizing with Purpose moisturizer, and I'm doing that. But I've always used a toner after cleansing and I miss using it. Is there a toner out there that won't irritate sensitive skin? Thanks for any suggestions.
     
  2. I use toner from La Therapie...I have used it about a year, and my skin is sensitive. No problems so far. They do have a website for online orders.
     
  3. Shu Uemura have some incredibly gentle toners. I like their nano- deep sea water lines best! It feels just like soothing water on the skin.
     
  4. Check out Sonya Dakar, SonyaDakar.com. She's the skin specialist to many celebs. and came out with a great product line IMO. I've worked in cosmetics for years and it takes A LOT for me to say I really like a skin care line! The ingredients she uses are very good quality and not synthetic junk like other mass produced companies use. Another good one in Jurlique, however Sonya Dakar's line is a targeted skin care line so you can find products for every skin type and need, eg. sensitive, discolored, acne, etc.
     
  5. Thank you for the suggestions. I haven't had good results with the usual brands you hear about most, so I am open to something new.
     
  6. I've used the one from Bobbi Brown with pretty good results.
     
  7. I've used Kiehl's Calendula Toner for years and it's really mild. Great for sensitive normal/oily skin because it actually calms the redness.
     
  8. Thank you all for replying. You've mentioned a few brands I've never heard of--good reason to post here.

    Tammy--I know about Bobbi Brown's make-up, but didn't know she had a skin care line.

    Thanks again for the tips, ladies.
     
  9. i use shiseidos qiora. i have extremely sensitive skin. it gets red all the time...i also recommend shu uemura toners..they're very gentle
     
  10. kiehl's is excellent for the times my skin decides to go crazy.
     
  11. I tend to get very dry skin at times, and I find the gentle toner by Estee Lauder works very well. It has kept me blemish-free as well! (So far...)
     
  12. Again, thanks for all the help--I appreciate that you took the time to give me some great suggestions. I've ordered a few that you named and will give them a try! I love trying new things, so I'm looking forward to it.

    Snowwhite: your dog in your avatar looks just like my son's dog, Mia. She was a rescue and the best dog ever. She passed away recently, but we have many fond memories of her antics and tricks.
     
  13. Get a toner with Chamomile and Glycolic Acid as the first two ingredients (or at the least, including those two)

    That would be perfect for your skin as mine has the same condition. I can't recommend a brand though because mine is bought through an esthetician, but you can definitely still get it for yourself. The titles is what varies; that's all.
     
  14. I love Boscia. The whole line cleanses my face great, yet perfect for sensitive skin.

    Boxermom, I'm very sorry to hear about Mia. It's so difficult to lose our pups.

    Bella-Luna is a rescue dog as well! She is a Husky/Rottweiller cross, and a real brat! I love her SO much!
