Does anyone know of a good natural toner other than acv? Right now I use witch hazel, and it needs to clean my makeup on nights when i can't muster up to wash my face. it also needs to be safe for pregn. thanks ahead of time for any input.

You can steep chamomile tea or green tea in a cup of hot water, let that cool and add another cup of water and use that.
Also, lemon water (juice of half a lemon, strain off seeds, etc).

Here's another one, though it takes some preparation:

1 t dried peppermint leaves
4 t green tea leaves
4 ounces water
2 drops lavender essential oil
2 t aloe vera gel

Boil water, pour over herbs in a strainer, add lav oil, steep for 10 mins and let cool, add aloe vera to a bottle, pour herb infusion in. Spritz face.

Hope that helps!
