How to use toner tabs

Treat yourself to some aromatherapy with a steam clean. Dropped into a bowl of hot water, our toner tabs deliver a dose of essential oils directly to your skin, leaving you feeling smoothed, soothed and refreshed.

Toners and steamers are designed to help your skin feel soft and supple. Somewhere in between cleansing and moisturising, they help to remove cleansers and also – contrary to popular belief – keep skin hydrated. Our toners and toner tabs are made without alcohol so don’t leave you feeling dry; we use flower-infused waters, sea water, spring water, and carefully-selected essential oils to help your skin feel comfortable and flexible.

How to use a toner tab:

Drop your toner tab into a medium-sized bowl of very hot water.

Drape a towel over your head and let your face hover over the bowl, allowing the calming, cleansing and soothing essential oils to rise up through the steam and onto your skin.

Once the tab has finished fizzing, remove the towel and gently pat your face dry.

Dream Steam toner tab in use

Apply moisturiser to your freshly toned skin, or try Full Of Grace solid facial serum. Your pores will have opened up from the steam, and so your skin will be extra-receptive to the beneficial oils and ingredients. You could even apply a fresh face mask before moisturising to give your skin an extra boost.

You can then transfer the water from the bowl into a spray bottle and store it in the fridge for up to a week; use it for a refreshing spritz whenever you need a quick tone.

HI :) I was wondering if I split the tab up into eg in half, would it still have a similar effect? Or do we have to buy multiple?

You can collect the toner water and put it in a bottle for a toner spray.

As I strong advocate of the plastic free movement, I was thinking how great it would be if you could make small toner tabs like your mouthwash tabs that came in a glass bottle and dissolved in water to make your toner

Hi! Thanks for letting us know your thoughts :) ... Our Toner Tabs can be used as bottled water after you steam your face with them- just pop the water into a reusable bottle and store in the fridge for up to 7 days! ~ Viki

Hello, when you say 'drape a towel over your head' do you mean completely covering so your head is under the towel or just to keep your hair out of the way? Thanks.

Hi, it means to cover your head over the bowl/basin so you get the full steam effect to open your pores. You can tie your hair up or have it up in a smaller towel to keep it from hanging into the water. Have your face over the bowl/basin and drape the towel from your neck over the bowl. If you don't cover over the bowl you lose most of the steam into the room, and it won't benefit your skin as well. I hope that helps. x

I think to keep your hair out of the way? Otherwise your face won’t get the full effect of the toner tab. Tbh I was a bit confused too!

Hey, can you use these in a facial steamer?

we would only recommend dissolving them in hot water. :)

Hey! Just noticed a typo in the following sentence- “Apply moisturiser to your freshly toned SIN” where I’m pretty sure it should be skin. Great article :).
