I'm new to using toners. i just bought some pure witchhazel but don't know when i'm supposed to use it. after i cleanse but before i moisturize? but then doesn't the moisturizer counter the tightening action of the toner? what to do what to do...

Yep, a toner is after you cleanse. I would be sure it is dry then apply your moisturizer.

the order is cleanse, scrub (if neccessary) tone, moisturise. autumnagain is right, you wait until the toner has evaporated before you apply the moisturiser.

toner is not just used to 'tighten' the skin - it also refines the look of the pores, so by moisturising you won't be undoing the work of the toner

You know that toner recipe I mentioned? You can also use witch hazel distillate as the "liquid" portion
