Let’s face it, we all use them, but do we really know the difference between a toner and an astringent?

Whether you consider yourself a skincare guru or novice, let’s get back to the basics. The steps of any beauty routine often mimic each other; cleanse, tone, and moisturize. It’s the second step in routines however, that seem to cause the most confusion. Why use a toner? Why not an astringent? What’s the difference anyway? Well, skincare enthusiasts no need to worry, we’re breaking it down for you.

Beauty starts from within… the bottle.

Toners and astringents are formulated differently and for that reason, serve different skin types. While both of our Toners and Astringents contain our proprietary Witch Hazel Aloe Vera formula, toners are water-based products, and typically include antioxidants and cell-repairing ingredients. Astringents, on the other hand, are alcohol-based products. Our astringents contain natural alcohol from botanical sources.

Ingredients 101.

Ingredients are also how we at Thayers determine what scents will be toners or astringents. Our favorite Rose Petal Facial Toner is made with rose water, while our Lemon Astringent is made with alcohol and a lemongrass alcohol-based extract.

Tone it down.

Thayers toners contain aloe and glycerin, which can draw water into the skin and may help soothe and buffer pH levels. Toners are also used to prime the skin for moisturizers and serums. Thayers toners may help hydrate the skin and also remove any excess dirt or grime that wasn’t cleaned off by your facial cleanser. In addition, our toners contain an abundance of tannins, which play an important part in helping constrict pores and control oil production. Toners are a great solution to those who might want to treat acne-prone or sensitive skin without the help of alcohol. 

 

 

All for astringents.

While providing similar benefits as toners, Thayers astringents are designed to aid in the removal of oil from the skin. Most astringents can dry out skin in the process. Thayers astringents, however, include aloe and glycerin, which help prevent loss of moisture. The alcohol content in astringents also give it anti-bacterial properties, which may help individuals with acne breakouts. Be sure to use astringents in small amounts, however, as the overuse of an astringent could have the reverse effect on skin, leaving it more oily. Thayers astringents also help to remove traces of dirt and grime from your skin.

So which one is right for you?

Your skin type is the deciding factor between using a toner or an astringent. Toners cover most skin types and can work for anybody. If you find your skin is of the oilier and acne-prone type, an astringent may provide you further benefit. It’s specially formulated to remove excess oil and work against acne-causing bacteria due to the presence of alcohol. Still unsure of which product to reach for? You can take our product suggestion quiz and we’ll help point you in the right direction based on your specific skincare concerns.

    Which do I use as an aftershave, astringent or toner? My skin is probably normal-to-oily. I purposely do not use typical aftershave lotions due to the large amount of alcohol contained in them. If I understand correctly, the alcohol in witch hazel is natural and so not as strong – does this mean it’s ok to use as an aftershave? Does your alcohol-free witch hazel still contain natural 14% alcohol? Thank you.

    • If you’d like a zing after shaving, you can use any of our astringents, which contain alcohol. For a more gentle effect, you can use any of our alcohol-free toners for the same pore-closing effect, just without the stinging due to alcohol. Our alcohol-free toners do not contain any alcohol.

  • Hello i noticed my rose toner bottle lists witch hazel as one of the last ingredients as opposed to being one of the first ingredients as on the label picture i saw in this website, does that mean that the witch hazel concentration in my bottle is lower than that in others?

    • Hi! We went through a bit of a re-formulation to up the % of witch hazel in our formula – you may have an older bottle, but any newer bottle you purchase will have the updated formula.

  • I have oily acne prone skin. I bought your astrigent (the original variant) earlier because I thought it was the toner. I was wondering, how many times should I use it? Do I still have to top it with a toner before applying moisturizer? Is it okay if I use the astringent in the morning and then at night, I’ll just cleanse, tone, and moisturize?

    Reply
    • It ideally should be used morning and night. If you’re finding the astringent is too drying, use it just once daily. If this is still too drying for you, we definitely recommend our alcohol-free toners for your skin type, as opposed to the astringents. You don’t have to use toner on top of the astringent if the astringent is working well for you!

    Hello , I’ve been using the rose petal toner for quite some time now and my skin is doing great. I think I have normal to combination skin because i tend to get oilier only in my t-zone. I just purchased the lemon astringent to try it all over for a while just because I want to make sure I keep my clear skin because from time to time I do get small break outs. Every time I use the witch hazel I follow up with grapeseed oil. Do you think trying the lemon astringent is a good idea or should I just stick to the toner?

    Hi. I am planning to buy the Rose Petal Toner to hydrate my face coz I think it became dry using my toner before that has alcohol. Hoping it help to hydrate my face. But I am planning to use as well the Lemon Astringent coz I my skin type is oily to acne prone. How often I can use the astringent? I saw in the comments that it can dry the skin so just use it once a day. I can do that, use it once a day. But is the astringent can be use like everyday or no ?

As of now, I’m still in dilemma on whether to wear astringent or toner. Thank you!

In addition to being a natural ingredient, Witch Hazel is also a seasonal item, and variations will occur during our cold press process. You can rest assured that bubbles appearing in the product are quite common and safe to use.

      Hi Rhonda,

      Thanks for reaching out to us! Variations in color, clarity etc. can be expected from lot to lot because of our naturally occurring ingredients. In addition to being a natural ingredient, Witch Hazel is also a seasonal item, and variations will occur during our cold press process. Let us know if you have any additional questions at info@thayers.com or give us a call at 1-888-THAYER-1 (1-888-842-9371).

  • Does Thayer’s have a “NO Aloe formula”. As odd as it sounds I am allergic to Aloe Vera. I am constantly looking for toners and or facial products that are aloe free. It is becoming harder and harder to find a good product without Aloe in it, that won’t break my bank. Thanks!

      Hi Teri,

      Unfortunately, all our facial products are formulated with our proprietary blend of Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera. We are sorry for the inconvenience, and hope you manage to find a product that works for you!

  • I would like to DIY a bottle of essential oil hair scalp spray using witch hazel. Which would you recommend? Toner or astringent?

      Hi Cherilyn,

      You can use either our Toner or Astringent! Our Facial Toners are alcohol free while our Astringents contain alcohol to further help control oil production. However, both are great for moisturizing, cleansing, toning and balancing the pH level of skin. As always we recommend patch testing as everyone’s skin is different, I hope this helps!

  • I use the toner which gives me a nice glow and tightens my pores and astringent which helps with a extra cleansing step in my regimen. The astringent has helped with keeping my acne under controll. Thank you!

  • Hi,
    I have been using rose petal witch hazel for my acne/ acne scares and previously ran into the lemon blemish stick. Would you recommend to use both?

      Hi Rebecca,

      Thanks for reaching out to us! Our Lemon Blemish Stick would certainly help with any acne scars or blemishes you are trying to fight as well as our Rose Petal Facial Toner. As always, we suggest patch testing both products to make sure they can be used in tandem! I hope this helps. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at info@thayers.com or give us a call at 1-888-THAYER-1 (1-888-842-9371).
