Lancome Tonique Confort

Toners have come a long way since those drying alcoholic liquids of my youth. You were supposed to scrub your skin clean, then follow up with a toner that left your face feeling tingly and dry. Of course, stripping the skin of all its natural oils only meant extra pore activity to replenish them, and breakout galore. Yes, the 80s were fun.

Everyone has learned a thing or two since then (just ask George Michael), and toners are not what they used to be. Take Lancome Tonique Confort, for example. It has the oddest texture: thick and almost gel-like. It's made with honey and almond seed extract and it's not here to dry out your skin. Instead, it feels like an extra pampering while actually picking up any leftover debris or makeup after cleansing.

I use it on those lazy nights when I remove my makeup with cleansing wipes or a towelette and want to make sure my face is really clean without overdrying it. A quick swipe of Tonique Confort feels nice, leaves the skin soft and does the job (surprisingly) efficiently. It's meant for treating dry skin and fully delivers on that. I haven't had any pulling or tightening sensation from using it.

Bottom line: Very good.

Lancome Tonique Confort ($24 for 6.4 oz) is available from every semi-decent department store and lancome.com.
