BTW, I use Origin's Zero Oil toner, it has mint so it leaves your skin super fresh. But it has alcohol .

Personally, I find them to be an expendable step in a skincare routine; they don't really do much for skin.

I don't know if there's a really strict classification for what is/isn't a toner, but I use one to exfoliate and make sure any cleanser residue is off. All it is a half apple cider vinegar and half water or tea. The ACV cleans and exfoliates, and the cotton pad itself helps get off flakes of dead skin. It's definitely not something I personally would remove from my routine.

If you want it to make sure you remove all traces of makeup, I would say use a better cleanser. Something like oil.
If it's as an exfoliant, there are probably exfoliators than a toner. Like lotions with an AHA.

I was on an extremely high dosage considering my body weight. 80mg for a 110 lb girl, so my symptoms were very harsh. I got to the point where I was washing every couple of days(Or was it just once a week?) with the same Aveeno cleanser I am now and globbing on aquaphor or Eucerin nighttime redness relief.If I went out anywhere I'd use some spf moisturizer underneath Loreal Trumatch foundation. Occasional I would take off some dead skin with a baby's hair brush softened with hot water. The bristles are similar to facial brushes,but it was cheaper.

Toners aren't really necessary.

It's not important, but I still use it.
The biggest reason for me is because I feel that when I pat my face dry with a towel, most likely it will transfer some dust or whatever on the towel on to my skin ( I do wash my towel everyday, but still...)
So using a toner with a disposable cotton pad seems to remove those dust/whatever there's on my skin before I apply my lotion & sunscreen.
But, to me, using a toner or plain water seems like the same thing.
*Though I am very interested in using a toner with AHA, and then use my lotion/sunscreen of my choice instead of using an AHA lotion, and then another lotion again.

My derm told me to stop using toners as they can be too drying and unnecessary if I am doing my prescribed regimen correctly. I think it just depends on your current regimen and skin.

Toners never did anything for my skin. I am back on the regimen now and seeing much better results that I did over the past year where I was using all natural products and various toners. (worst acne of my life)
