Under $20: 10 of the Best Drugstore Toners for Glowing Skin

Recently, we've fallen back in love with toners here at Byrdie HQ. It's not that we ever stopped loving them, per se, but considering the movement toward serums, oils, and other dreamy elixirs that promise to gift us with fairy-kissed skin… well, forgive us if we neglected to give our once basic toner the love it deserved. (Although, mind you, our favorite toners these days are anything but basic.)

Essential for nixing any lingering leftovers post-cleanse, rebalancing moisture and pH levels, and improving the results of proceeding skincare products, toners are pivotal for achieving a healthy and radiant complexion. Therefore, we've been dedicating more of our time and energy to the topic, dishing up the best toners for oily skin and the best alcohol-free toners. (You're welcome.) Yet, there's one major area we still have yet to cover: the blessed drugstore (i.e., ultra-affordable) variety. And since many of our wallets are feeling a little worse for the wear since the holidays, a list featuring the very best drugstore toners couldn't feel more opportune. Keep reading for our editor-approved list of 10 glow-enhancing toners you can pick up at your local drugstore.

Still unsure about the difference between toner and essence? (We were at first, too). This story will help break it down.
