Best Alcohol-Free Toner For Oily Skin: Ask IMBB

Ask IMBB Gang

Pratixa Asks:


I would like to post a question for all the IMBBians out there. So, my query is which is the best toner for oily skin, preferably alcohol free. I have terribly oily skin with whiteheads, so I’m looking for a toner which could help diminish the whiteheads.

Thank you.

  1. Pratixa,
    You can try FabIndia Rosewater or their TeaTree Toner.
    I have oily-normal combi skin, and they work great.

  2. fabindia tea tree toner will be good… its alcohol free and tea tree helps in drying effect on the skin. good for oily-skinned

  3. You could go for the Biotique toner. They have one whose name I forget but it’s got cucumber and it smells quite minty too. I’ve used it during sticky monsoon months and it’s proved to be pretty good.

  4. i have used TBS tea tree toner and thats pretty good too..but i will try the Nivea refeshing one after reading the review today on IMBB.

    1. I have used and then stopped using toners because they leave a darkening effect on the skin. How would you recommend TBS for solving that issue?

  5. TBS Aloe toner is alcohol free and great for sensitive skins as its very soothing..does not make you look oily yet keeps your skin well balanced and supple! It comes at Rs.540 and will last easily for 3-4 months. Fab India’s rose water is great too! Comes at Rs.175 and will last a month

  6. Fabindia … hands down.. tea tree or neem tulsi one. the rose one is also good. it has parabens though… but its hard to find one without parabens

  7. Both Fab India neem tulsi toner and TBS tea tree toner are good …..I am using TBS tea tree toner…about to finish and already I bought Neem tulsi from Fab India ..Was curious to see I opened the bottle it smells gud too….Waiting TBS to get over and will start the new one 🙂

  8. Fab India’s rose water Or Lavender Toner is can also try Avon Green Tea toner… works amazingly on oily skin !!!!!!!

  9. I would say that ‘The body shop seaweed clarifying toner’ is the best for oily/combo. give it a shot. You’ll like it. All the best!

  10. Pratixa,

    Try the VICHY toner, I have super sensitive skin, and I switched from Clnique to this, and Ive been happy with it so far. Alcohol might be alrght in the toner, but only if your skin isn’t sensitive. If you’re breaking out, you might want to try something gentler. Good luck!

  11. I’m not sure if it contains alcohol, but the L’oreal Pure Zone deep control anti-acne gel is super effective. It takes away the oilness in your skin (i usually apply on my t-zone) and you can see the effects on the same or next day. I doesnt dry out ur skin, otherwise ur skin kinda gets soft. I super recommend this.
    And if you have a sensitive skin towards whiteheads, believe me, you’ll see how they decrease in few days.
