Quite moisturizing. Peach & Lily The Good Acids Pore Toner has a moisturizing rating of 5.0 out of 10.

Purely humectant. It has a maximum Humectancy of 10 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.
