Who This Product Is For

SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner is ideal for those with normal to oily or combination skin who are also struggling with enlarged pores, bumps, and dry flaky areas of skin.

How It Compares
  • SKIN BALANCING Pore-Reducing Toner offers proven antioxidants, soothing plant extracts, and niacinamide to help tone down oily skin and minimize pore size.
  • It is one of our most popular toners in our Paula's Choice Skincare range amongst customers.
  • Toners are absolutely great for skin enrichment, but never mandatory in protecting your skin.
Alternatives
Strength
  • The Hydralight Toner offers almost similar benefits for those with more normal and less oily skin.
  • Skin Balancing Pore-Reducing Toner uses a more complex formulation than our Hydralight Healthy Skin Refreshing Toner, and helps restore normal cell function.
  • For Sensitive Skin, opt for the Calm Toner for Oily Skin.
Texture
  • Skin Balancing Toner has a liquid consistency, similar to most toners you may have tried (save for Paula's Choice RESIST Advanced Replenishing Toner/ Skin Recovery Toner).
  • Its exceptionally lightweight liquid formula still provides high-quality hydration to diminish reddened areas of skin.
Ingredient
  • The Resist Weightless Advance Repairing Toner is formulated with a richer blend of antioxidants for Oily Skin.

  • After cleansing, apply toner to a cotton pad and gently stroke over face and neck. Do not rinse. Follow with the rest of your morning or evening skincare routine. For daytime, finish with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 25 or greater. Detailed instructions on how/when to apply your Paula's Choice products can be found in our How to Put Together Your Own Skincare Routine article.
  • What do toners “tone”? I thought Paula didn’t recommend toners!

    Paula has always recommended toners that are well-formulated. Toners can be a great after-cleansing step to be sure you’ve removed all of your makeup. When properly formulated, they soothe skin and add hydrating ingredients to make skin softer, not to mention they’re another leave-on source for antioxidants and other ingredients that improve skin’s healthy functioning.

    How do I know which toner is right for me? Besides skin type, what are the main differences between Paula's Choice toners?

    All of our toners restore skin, help remove last traces of makeup, are alcohol- and fragrance-free, and contain no unnecessary irritants such as menthol, peppermint, and citrus oils. They are great as an adjunct to a more thorough cleansing routine, especially post-workout or in hot/humid climates. Even more significantly they go beyond the basics by offering skin benefits you can see and feel.
