Since the introduction of our floral witch hazel toners, we have often been asked how toners and facial sprays differ – and whether both are routinely required.
Are toners and facial sprays different?
Yes, toner and facial mist are different! Toners (also called "cleansing lotion" in our line) have been developed to bring the skin back into balance after washing the face and to give the skin a weightless layer with complexion-enhancing properties. (For example, witch hazel and lavender toner clears and soothes the skin and removes any remaining surface contaminants.) Consider toner as part of your cleaning routine: the non-negotiable second part after rinsing off detergent.
Our facial sprays are designed to replenish and refresh your skin. While our mists are great multitaskers, their main purpose is to increase hydration and also give botanical benefits to your skin care and makeup (depending on the facial spray you choose).
How do you use toner and facial spray in your routine?
How it works:
- Wash your face with a detergent.
- Pat dry and then moisten a cotton ball or cotton pad with toner. Wipe the cotton wool up over your face (avoiding the eye area) until the cotton wool is clean.
- Spray your face and neck generously with a Mario Badescu Facial Spray …
- … and while your skin is still damp, apply your serum / moisturizer. In this way, ingredients such as sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid (or other moisturizers in your skin care regimen) get more water to bind to and soak in the skin, maximizing hydration.

I take these truths for granted that skin care is paramount, green tea is everything, and the Internet rules everything (typical Gen Y philosophy; if it wasn't programmed, it never happened).
