Dos’s and Dont’s
Q1. Do I use this in place of toner?
A. Yes and no. While the mandelic water is not a toner, depending on if you feel that your skin needs the extra layer of hydration and protection that a toner provides, you can choose to use the mandelic water during the step you would toner, and skip toner as a whole. This is because the mandelic water, while it’s considered an exfoliator, works to also prep the skin as a toner would for skincare products applied afterwards.
