GlowOasis Milkdew Toner
Many people use a host of soaps and serums for their skin but the perfect complexion still eludes them. Toner may just be the secret sauce they’ve been missing. The most important component of toner is that it balances skin’s pH. (Image Credit: GlowOasis)

This GlowOasis Milkdew Toner not only balances your skin’s pH, it also hydrates. Moreover, it is chock-full of amino acids which calm skin and reduce redness.
It is important to note that all of GlowOasis products are vegan and non-GMO. In addition, the probiotics used are plant-derived from Korean napa cabbage.
