My FavouriteToner ♥

I was sent this a while ago by the lovely people at Liz Earle to try out and I have been a fan since! They have amazing staff, service and packaging :)

Usually I did not get the point of toners, I did have one before though from Skin Therapy and it worked fine. However this one is just magic.

Basically toners are meant to give back some moisture to your skin after you have cleansed and exfoliated. It prevents dragging moisturizer on dry skin. Plus this one soothes, revitalizes and brightens the skin.

It smells heavenly to start with, but that's the case with all Liz Earle products. This one smells like baby powder to me which is very pleasant to be honest.

It contains Aloe Vera, Cucumber Extract, Calendula Extract, Chamomile Extract to soothe and calm the skin and Vitamin E to coat the skin with a thin layer of moisture and prep it to absorb moisturizer effectively.

I find a huge difference when I do not use this as my skin feels very dry and tight and I can feel the moisturizer is rather difficult for the skin to absorb. Whereas using this prior makes my skin feel so fresh and energized and it soaks the moisturizer like a sponge!

I was not very fond of toners before as I had never come across an effective one and thought they were a marketing gimmick. But this one has changed my mind and I will be repurchasing as £11.50 for 200ml is quite a bargain.

Also I have combination-sensitive skin type which means I have some days when my skin feels oily and I can even get away with a moisturizing toner as such and skip moisturizer completely. It will hydrate without adding oils to your skin like a moisturizer.

Remember you don't want to add more oils to your acne prone/oily skin. See GossMakeupArtist's skin care videos here to know more about substituting toners for moisturizers for certain skin types.

How to use?
Just pour a little on a cotton pad and sweep all over your face and neck after cleansing and before applying moisturizer.

That's a bargain for that much, can you get a travel size of this? I'm itching to try Liz Earle but have so much stuff to finish off before I buy more.

If you love this product then you'll love her other facial products their amazing and natrual ingredients which is important to me to some extent. She does a trial mini size of her facial sets which includes i think cleanse & polish, toner, mosituriser & muslin cloth for around £12 ? Might be worth a looksie.
