A year ago, I had no idea that not all toners have a watery consistency. When I got my hands on a gel-like toner for the first time, I instantly fell in love. As a gal with the most combo skin of combo skins, having two toners made all the difference in the world!
So what are the differences anyway?
First up, the traditional toner that you’re probably most familiar with: watery consistency.
This is the Nooni Sprout Smoothing Toner:
Because this toner is so lightweight, it’s perfect for those with oily/combo skin. Use this after cleanser as a way to exfoliate the skin and gently “triple-cleanse” by removing any final traces of makeup.
This particular toner contains a premium Sprout Complex, including broccoli sprouts, canola sprouts, and bean sprouts- all ingredients for some gentle exfoliation!
To use, you just need to put a nickel-sized amount on a cotton pad and sweep it around your face in an upwards and outwards motion.
Now for the thicker formula, Nooni Seed Essence Toner:
I say “thicker”, but it’s actually closer to the thickness of whole milk- not completely watery, but definitely not thick. The formula makes it a favorite for dry skin gals. The moisturizing components in this type of toner really feeds dry patches!
This particular toner consists of some really great ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, green tea seeds, and quinoa seeds. Whenever I use this, my skin feels incredibly smooth and the rest of my skincare just glides right on!
To use, you dispense a dime-sized amount onto your palm, rub your hands together, and gently press it onto your face. Don’t forget your neck! Sweep any leftover product softly along your neck in an upwards motion.
Still not sure?

I should also mention that both of these toners are alcohol-free, which is great for sensitive skin. Also because many cleansers leave a bit of a dry feeling and you can’t have your toner doing that too 🙅
