Morning sweet cheeks!
What a cringe way to start a post eh? Ha i couldn’t resist, it’s the festive spirit taking over.
Are you a fan of toners? I used to be until i read that most contain too much alcohol (when I was about 15) and so I stopped using them. Over the past few years though I still seem to buy them and in all honesty i was a bit baffled, why was I buying them and not using them?!
I picked up the Origins Zero Oil toner when my skin was super oily, which seemingly changed overnight and ever since my skin has had it’s oily t-zone but been too dehydrated and temperamental for me to even think about using this toner and so it was confined to the back of my desk drawers.
Recently though my skin has stopped being so sensitive and I still have that oily t-zone so I decided it was time to get it out and give it a go or donate it to someone who could actually use it.
Origins Zero Oil Pore Purifying Toner contains saw palmetto and mint to combat oil production, salicylic acid to aid exfoliation and blocked pores, aloe leaf juice and glycerin to help with redness and a whole load of essential oils.
I apply this in the mornings with a cotton wool pad and concentrate on my t-zone with a quick swipe over the rest of my face.
It feels really cool and refreshing and definitely helps to mattify my skin ready for moisturiser. It doesn’t feel like it has stripped my skin like other strong toners have done in the past and I was generally surprised how much I have liked using it and have actually been getting through it rather quickly!
I love that it contains salicylic acid, it’s one of my favourite products for skincare because it has never reacted badly with my skin and has so many good effects especially in terms of exfoliation.
I’ve been surprised at how well this toner has worked and it’s changed my opinions on them, maybe some of them really do work!
Which is your favourite toner? Do you use any of the Origins toners?
The Zero Oil toner can be bought online or in store for £18 for 150ml.
