This is the first toner I’ve ever used, except for Rose Water. I have quite an oily skin and so a toner helps in keeping the oil in check by maintaining the pH balance of the skin.
This toner comes in a light green coloured bottle with a white flip top cap. The cap shuts tightly and is travel friendly too.
The toner itself is a transparent water like liquid. I don’t particularly like its smell. It’s a bit too strong for me.
I use this by dabbing some on a cotton pad and applying it on my face softly, after washing my face. But by evening, my face does turn oily again. Then again it also depends upon the weather conditions. Lately it has been quite humid here in Delhi.
This toner definitely does what it claims though I wouldn’t say completely, but then my skin is too oily. It does keep the oil secretion in check.
I have heard some toners sting on application on face, but this one doesn’t sting at all.
It also does not make my face dry out or anything unwanted. I guess the glycerin in it keeps the skin hydrated.
After applying this, my face feels fresh n clean. It gets absorbed in under a minute.
I’ve been using it since July It’s about to get over now (and then I’ll start with my TBS toner… yippee). But it would easily last about 3 months for anyone else. Mine has gotten over so soon because my sister also uses this sometimes so for one person this is enough for about 3, even 4 months depending on the quantity you use.
Overall, I like this toner quite a lot and would definitely like to repurchase if I don’t find a better one. J
