Moisturizers aren’t the only way to hydrate your skin! A milky toner or essence is your best friend if you have dehydrated skin, and these are great for removing any extra dirt and grime before the rest of your routine. It’s also a hydrating step with additional benefits depending on the formulation and ingredients. Here are five milky toner recommendations (and essences) to help you achieve soft and dewy skin!
What is a Milky Toner?
Contrary to popular belief, milky toners don’t contain milk (or bubble tea)! Instead, the name describes the cloudy liquid appearance of the product. Unlike your regular water-based toners, milky toners can also act as your moisturizer step. They can be an excellent option for anyone wanting extra nourishment and a streamlined skincare routine. Milky toners are also great for all skin types since they’re gentle and lightweight without feeling greasy or tacky and leave your face hydrated for hours!
Tips for incorporating a Milky Toner into Your Routine
- If you have dry skin, you can consider using a milky toner mist to moisturize your skin throughout the day.
- For oily skin types, this can be a great option to replace your toner and moisturizer steps in one
- Need targeted hydration or relief? Soak a few cotton pads and press them onto affected areas as an easy DIY sheet mask!
- Milky toners are great for all skin types.
- They are extremely hydrating and nourishing.
- Some toners come in a bi-phase formula (oil and water layers), so make sure to shake well before use.
Dr. Ceuracle Vegan Kombucha Tea Essence
It looks like milk tea with cream foam on top from a distance, but I promise you it’s not. Dr. Ceuracle’s vegan hypoallergenic essence is amazing for dry and irritated skin. The water-like layer is made with kombucha from green tea, which helps to nourish the skin and protect the skin barrier. While the top milky layer is made with sunflower seed oil and other oils to soften the skin and hydrate the skin from deep within.
Mary & May Vegan Blackberry Complex Cream Essence
This Blackberry Complex Cream essence looks and feels so yummy. Formulated with blackberry extract, this vegan cream essence is a refreshing yet moisturizing product.

All these ingredients help strengthen the skin barrier and provide a nourishing effect to the skin. This essence is great for those looking for a cream in a bottle. If you have oily skin, put a few layers of this, and you should feel well-hydrated.
