Cleanser and Toner: The Hero Skin Duo

Cleanser and Toner: The Hero Skin Duo

One of the easiest ways to care for your skin is by cleansing and toning daily. These steps are the foundation for a healthy skincare regimen and ensure your skin remains clean and radiant.


Throughout the day, your skin accumulates a build-up of impurities from makeup, sweat and pollution which, if not washed away every day, can contribute to breakouts, dehydration and aging. Daily facial cleansing helps remove every trace of dirt and oil, leaving skin fresh and revitalized.

Maintain clean skin

The skin naturally produces sebum, which helps protect skin against environmental damage. Though beneficial, excess sebum can mix with dirt and bacteria on the skin’s surface and build up in your pores.

To help keep skin clean, we recommend using our Radiant Results Purifying Foaming Cleanser. With No7’s Tri-Vit Complex + Meadowsweet, it dissolves makeup and impurities and clears skin of excess oil, leaving it looking clean and free of shine. It’s formulated to help protect skin’s natural, healthy balance and is ideal for all skin types.

Boost hydration and prevent signs of aging

Cleansing regularly is key to help skin maintain proper hydration. For an intensely nourishing cleanser, we recommend No7 Radiant Results Nourishing Melting Gel Cleanser. With Vitamins C, E, B5 and grapeseed oil, skin is left looking healthier and radiant after just 1 week. As you massage it in, the gel formula becomes first a cleansing oil, and then a milk as you rinse away with water. Skin is left feeling clean, soothed and silky soft.

Increase the effectiveness of the products you use

Without cleansing, your skin would be covered with a layer of dirt and oil, making it difficult for key ingredients applied over the top to penetrate and nourish the skin. Clearing out your pores prepares skin for the absorption of other products in your skincare regimen and makes it more receptive to treatments such as serums, moisturizers, masks and oils.

Our Radiant Results Purifying Clay Cleanser is made with 10% kaolin clay to absorb oil and impurities and deeply clean the skin. With a soft and creamy texture, it reduces the appearance of pores and helps to mattify skin.

For best results, we recommend incorporating one of our cleansers into both your morning and nighttime skincare routines.


Toning is an integral part of the cleansing process and will remove any excess oil, dirt and debris left behind after cleansing. Toner also helps to nourish and hydrate the skin, preparing it to receive the products you use as the final steps of your skincare routine.

We recommend using No7 Radiant Results Revitalizing Toning Water after cleansing. Our multi-tasking toning water reduces the appearance of pores, helping you to achieve a clear, more even-looking complexion. With No7’s Tri-Vit Complex + Red Ginseng, skin looks and feels renewed and revitalized. Alternatively, our Radiant Results Purifying Toning Water is ideal for those with oily skin as it helps to mattify skin, leaving it looking fresh, healthy and shine-free.
