Refreshing toner, £20, DarphinBuy it to: Wake you up in the morning. This lovely toner really is perfectly refreshing and feels cool on your skin. We also love the scent, and the fact that it contains banana tree flower.

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner, £26, ClarinsBuy it to: Exfoliate gently but effectively.Not a fan of harsh facial scrubs? Then pick up this toner, which clarifies and exfoliates gently after your cleanse. It also smells pretty divine, too.
Serozinc spray, £8.50, La Roche-PosayBuy it to: Rid your skin of excess oil.Previously only available in France, this wonderful spray is excellent for controlling excess oil. It is now easily available through sites such as Escentual, and at only £8.50 a pop, we suggest you get ordering... pronto.
Glow tonic, £18, PixiBuy it to: Get that supermodel glow.Pixi's sell-out product started out only being sold in the brand's Carnaby Street store, and sold out on a daily basis. Luckily for beauty addicts, the exfoliating toner is now available in Liberty, as well as online on sites such as Cult Beauty. This bestselling product has grown at such a speedy rate for good reason.
Good news. Pixi Beauty are offering you 30% OFF the whole shop as part of the GLAMOUR Flash Sale on October 1st.
P50 lotion, £52, Biologique ReschercheBuy it to: Try something a little different.Biologique Rescherche's P50 lotion is technically a bit of an outlier. Described as an exfoliating lotion rather than a toner, this product is used after cleanser and before serum or moisturiser. After just one use, skin looks refreshed and feels great. Caroline Hirons is a fan, also... 'nuff said.
