When it comes to skincare, the goal is to ensure the oil and hydration levels in your skin are balanced, and the way to do that is to keep your skin hydrated and moisturised. If there’s one product that can keep your skin supple and hydrated, it’s a toner. Toner is an underrated yet multipurpose product that can target various skin concerns that go beyond acne and oiliness. Many tend to skip toners, but trust us on this: adding that one extra step to your skincare routine can make a real and visible difference in the moisture levels of the skin. To help you pick the best toner for yourself, Beauty Insider Malaysia has gathered a list of the best toners in Malaysia. 

The Best Toners in Malaysia

1. L’Oréal Paris Glycolic 5% Glycolic Acid Peeling Toner

Inspired by professional peeling procedures, L’Oréal Paris Glycolic 5% Glycolic Acid Peeling Toner has taken the beauty community by storm.

Featuring glycolic acid as its key ingredient, it boasts the smallest molecular size among alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). This allows it to deeply penetrate every layer of the skin, providing instant results. 

Beyond preparing the skin, it is exquisitely crafted to address dull complexion concerns, including evening out the skin tone, boosting radiance, minimising dark spots and imperfections.
