    You can purchase hydrosol from qedusa.com. Toner has astringents and hydrosol does not.

    Da Vinci Water is a great hydrosol and can be bought at www.qedusa.com
    The smell and quality are top notch.
     
  7. A hydrosol qualifies as a toner. If you have oily skin, you will want a toner that acts as an astringent. A hydrosol is not an astringent.
     
  8. Mountain Rose Herbs (dot com) has tons of hydrosols. Also a pleasure to deal with.

    I love the da vinci water. I also combine it with my french green clay, which I am wearing right now (my kids love it when I go green).
     
  10. Isn't witch hazel a hydrosol? Thayer's works well for me..
     
  11. The Art of Shaving has a very nice Rose hydrosol that you might check out.
     
  12. The ancients aftershave method knows best:

    - cold water rinse
    - alum block
    - rose water
    - talc

    But moderns are fittest:

    -Use an SPF Moisturizer or SPF ASB as/if needed throughout day.
