Essential Chic Fixation – Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Cleansing & Toning Lotion.

Hello!

Toner

Recently a friend enquired me about a particular face wash she wanted to try mainly due to ugly blemishes knocking her skin “door”. After speaking with her for a while I found out she wasn’t really using any toner – Aha – that was a perfect opportunity for me to explain why she should start using it rather than investing in other new products.

I learnt the use of toner after working with a skin care brand called “Dermalogica” for over 2 years. Initially I used to think its just one extra step that one can add to their skincare and BOY was I wrong. My skin is oily since I can remember, however, I began to notice it getting dry & flaky after I started getting hormonal acne attacks. After a lot of trial & errors I found out that I needed to balance out my PH level. All the acne medication both topical & internal were the culprit for such a mess up. Thats when I started using a toner.

A toner basically helps in:

  • Balancing your PH level
  • Helps to reduce the size of your pores
  • Helps to remove any extra makeup residue that was left after washing.
  • Refreshes the skin
  • Helps to soak the moisturizer into the skin better

These are the basic things that a toner helps me with. I am obsessed with Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Cleansing & Toning Lotion ( As you can see here I have backups for it).

For me If I skip this step my skin immediately retaliates. I start getting dry patchy skin especially around my cheek & jaw.

If you are wanting to add this step to your skin care routine ( which I Highly recommend) then you can start by a simple yet effective Toner – Rose Water. You can find it at any grocery store or supermarket.

Do you have any particular toner that you are obsessed with?

  1. I use Neutrogena moisturiser & Asdas own toner & cleanser & Superdrug eyecream. I’m really trying to stick to it. I’m desperate for falling asleep in makeup so I keep the cleanser & toner beside my pillow so I have No excuses!! ☺

    • I used to use Neutrogena long time back.. loved their oil free moisturizer.. I wonder why i stopped.. Oh I remember I got madly in love with some other moisturizer and after two months another one came in to the picture ( so basically I am a self confessed beauty product junkie 😛 ) I guess we both sail in the same boat of not wanting to take off makeup when tired. I have had my share of bad experiences in the morning so I now try really hard to not repeat it.

      Thanks for stopping by here 🙂
