OK, so what’s this product like? Well, this tonic is essentially a toner. It contains white tea, pomegranate, bilberry and coconut extracts, vitamins, antioxidants, chamomile, cucumber and aloe vera extracts. Awesome!
This toner promises balanced, refined and soothed skin as well as purified pores.
I’ve been using this toner on and off since December, and I think that it’s really powerful. It smells harsh. Well, I think it smells like poison. And when I use this toner for more than 2 days in a row, it makes my skin feel like it’s being poisoned!
Having said that, I have no issues at all when I’m using this toner every other day – and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for a while. (The other toner I use it Boots’ cheap yet awesome cucumber toner.)
I haven’t noticed any oil-balancing effects, and I don’t think that the toner feels particulary soothing or calming. However, I actually enjoy using it every other day because it feels like it’s killing (=poisoning) all sorts of nasty bacteria. 😀
If you’re into natural skin care, I think you should try this toner – but be careful if you have sensitive or moody skin. And please make sure you do a patch test first!
Sukin’s Oil Balancing Clarifying Facial Tonic is available as 125ml for £9.95 (Boots). I paid £4.99 (TK Maxx).
