Toners never get enough credit in the skincare world. Honestly, we could declare today to be Global Toner Appreciation Day and we still wouldn’t feel like we were quite showing our appreciation enough. Toner does it all. It may balance out our skin’s pH level, remove excess makeup and dirt, swipe away oil and kick our blemishes to the curb, for starters. When people ask if we’re planning on “getting toned” for the summer, we just show them a bottle of this celebrity-favorite toner and nod our head with confidence. Oh, yes, we are.

The Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic by REN Clean Skincare is exactly what’s going to get our skin summer-ready. Self-proclaimed “beauty hoarder,” Hilary Duff, showed it off in her recent Instagram shelfie, and we knew we needed it for ourselves. It’s selling out elsewhere, so we’re so happy we could find it! Duff has been glowing since the Lizzie McGuire days, and her skin seems to be even healthier and more youthful now, almost 20 years later, in her current hit series, Younger. A fitting name.

This toner’s popularity is growing by the second, probably because we only need about that long to see results, according to shoppers, who say it “works like a charm” to even out skin tone. One said they saw results even after just one use. Another mentioned how it lightened up a dark spot on their chin, while others proclaimed it to be “great for breakouts.” Some skincare lovers have seen such a drastic change in their skin, that one even said a coworker asked them what new highlighter they were using! We can see why people are saying they “won’t go a day without using this.”

This toner claims to be brightening, helping our complexion to achieve the radiance we’ve always dreamed of. Instead of scrubbing away our dead skin cells and irritating our face, we can use this AHA toner instead to exfoliate chemically. It claims to not only refine our skin texture, but also promote cellular renewal. Faster cellular renewal can mean faster healing of acne, dark spots and fine lines!

The two key ingredients of this toner are lactic acid and azelaic acid. Lactic acid is an AHA which is made by fermenting sugar. It’s known for its gentle yet powerful nature, and may continue working throughout the day and night to keep us bright and hydrated.

Azelaic acid has many proclaimed benefits. It may prevent melanin production, lightening up hyperpigmentation, all the while balancing our skin tone and encouraging our skin’s luminosity to take center stage. Just imagine how bright it will be when we’re in the spotlight! For a preview, just check out Duff’s radiance on screen!

To use this toner, always start out by cleansing first. We should do our best to remove makeup and dirt, whether we’re using makeup-removing wipes or double-cleansing with both oil and foam cleansers. Pat skin dry, and then it’s toning time. Press down on the well-pump of the minimally-designed orange and white bottle, saturating a cotton pad. Gently wipe the pad all over the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Many people like to also aid absorption by patting or pressing the toner into their skin afterwards with their fingers and palms!

Once we’re toned, we can continue on with our skincare routine. Layer a cool sheet mask on top and follow up with any essences, serums, emulsions, oils, creams and sleeping masks we’ve got going on in our medicine cabinet. The works!

This skin tonic is meant for basically every type of skin. Whether we’re oily, dry, acne-prone, sensitive or a combination of any of the above, this toner may give us a glow we never even knew was possible, keeping our skin soft, supple and smooth. It’s natural and certified cruelty-free, too!

If we were to continue with the Lizzie McGuire references (which we will), we would say that this toner is “what dreams are made of.” Duff would know!
