What’s the difference between Cleansing Milk & Tonic and Oxygenating Lotion?
Does it matter if you put on toner before cleansing your face? Or if you put on your sunscreen first or last? Or if you leave on an exfoliating scrub? The answer is yes. Even if you are using the best skincare products in the world, the order they are applied in matters. You could be decreasing the overall effectiveness of your routine and leaving your skin dry and irritated. It could also lead to wasting a lot of good product.
It may take a little time to learn how to build a skincare routine, but it is definitely worth a few extra minutes to ensure you are doing it right.
Start with a Facial Cleanser
The basis of good skin starts with a facial cleanser that properly removes makeup, dirt, pollution, dead skin cells and impurities that have built up during your busy day. A cleanser is always the first step in a skincare routine, before applying toner and moisturizer. It ensures your skin is clean before applying any further products.
Follow up with a Toner
Once skin has been properly cleansed, then it is ready for additional steps in your skincare routine. After cleansing, the next step in any advanced skincare routine is to apply a toner. Toners can shrink pores, restore your skin’s pH balance, moisturize and refresh skin and provide an extra layer of protection. A toner doesn’t have to be harsh to be effective; in fact a hydrating toner is best.
We recommend Bochéry’s Cleansing Milk as a facial cleanser for all skin types. It is one of our top-selling and most popular products. That’s because it performs so many functions – from acting as a make-up remover, to providing deep cleansing, enzymatic peeling, moisturization and toning. It is a unique, creamy, milky cleanser that comes in a tube, which makes it easy to use.
How to use
You apply a small amount to your face and massage it in gently with clean fingers or a cotton pad. If you check the cotton pad after, you will see the amount of dirt and makeup, even waterproof makeup, which will be removed from your face. The Cleansing Milk is strong enough to remove dead skin cells and provide a deep facial cleanse, yet also hydrate and soothe through active, natural ingredients like aquacacteen and St. John’s wort oil.

Another client, Mekayla;
“I’ve been using this every night for about a week, and already my skin looks and feels much softer. Good for taking off eye make-up too since it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin!”
After cleansing, we recommend using Bochéry’s Tonic & Oxygenating Lotion as the next step in your routine.

Apply a small amount of this lotion with a cotton pad, massage it in gently and leave it on. You would use this product 3-4 times per week after cleansing.

“I have been using this product in place of my regular toner. After cleansing my face, I apply this tonic to a cotton ball and swipe it across my face. The smell is pleasant and maybe tends towards a herbal scent. I found this product to feel very refreshing on the face. It would be a great product to use to quickly freshen up the face after a hot, sweaty day. I found that after using this product that my cotton ball was dirty looking. I was surprised how it picked up traces of dirt still on my face even after washing it! This is a product I am happy to continue using for its refreshing feeling and ability to deep clean my skin.”
“I have acne-prone skin and always use cleansing pads or toner to clean my skin. This product is much milder on my skin than the typical alcohol-filled toners, while still leaving my skin feeling clean and refreshed. It had the gentle feeling of a micellar water, but the cleansing feeling of a harsher alcohol-based toner. I also found the scent much nicer than the typical store/pharmacy brand toners.”
Real beauty care begins with basing your skincare routine on proper cleansing followed by toning. Ensure you are using gentle, yet powerful and effective cleansers and toners and check the ingredients. Active, natural ingredients will help you achieve the results you are looking for, as you don’t want to be cleaning your face with alcohol. After cleansing and toning to clean your face and leave it refreshed, don’t forget to apply moisturizer and then sunscreen if it is daytime.
