I'm on a mission to work out the mildest cleansing routine. I currently use Avene toner, on a cotton ball. It is little more than water. Its OK, but its not really designed to cleanse, and is a bit weak.

The great advantage of using a toner, though, is that you don't have to rinse or anything. Plus, I feel that a mild toner goes less 'deep' than cleansers do. It just gets rid of surface oil, and that's all I want.

Its difficult to find mild toners that also have a bit of cleansing power, and in my search I've come across so-called micellar (sp?) cleansers. They seem quite like toners; and you seem to use them in the same way. But I don't really know anything about them. Potentially, it seems a great option.

Any experiences?
