I’m not sure if you’re aware but toner is important, especially if you have oily skin. It lifts deep-seated dirt beneath the pores, and it preps the skin for the next steps of the skincare regimen. 

Look for the following ingredients: Witch hazel to control excess oil, glycolic acid for gentle exfoliation, and tea tree extract for blemish control. These three can help you achieve the shine-free and clear complexion of your dreams.

To help you find the best shine-controlling, blemish-killing toner that fits your budget and other specific needs, we've compiled the ~finest~ in the market:
