Hi guys, I've got this toner at home, well three of them. Clean & Clear Blackhead Clearing Toner, Clean & Clear Oil Controlling Toner and Biore Triple Action Toner. I am thinking of using one of them, but which one?

When I use a toner, should I use it like AHA? What is the difference between toners and AHA (Glycolic Acid) by the way, don't they work similar?

At the moment I am using Benzac (Benzoyl Peroxide) in the morning and applying AHA (Glycolic Acid) and in the evening (or night), applying AHA then Benzac. I was wondering if I could use the Toner in the morning and use it instead of the AHA in it's place in the morning?

P.S. I have the Biore Triple Action Toner as my preference at the moment because it contains Witch Hazel also.

Thanks, please help!

From the FAQs:

Q: Is a toner necessary?

A: No. Toners are one of those instances where it's best to save your money. They are not only unnecessary, they can over dry the skin. Over dry skin is irritated skin, and irritation can aggravate acne. When you read opinions from skin care experts and dermatologists, most of them tend to agree on this point. If you do find someone recommending a toner, keep in mind whether or not they are trying to sell you one. Toners tend to be high profit items.
