Today I tried my first toner! I've been wanting to try a toner for soooo long, and I thought this would be a good one to start with. So for the 5th day of the Brand Challenge, here's a quick review...
Breath of Fresh Air facial toner
Because I'm new to toners, I wasn't sure what to buy. My skin has got very dry and sore in places from the chemically skin products I've been using, so I wanted something that would sooth and hydrate my skin, but wouldn't give me an allergic reaction. I have super sensitive skin.
I was stuck between two toners, both from Lush. Breath of Fresh Air and Eau Roma Water. But Breath of Fresh Air seemed to have more natural ingredients, so I bought it. And I'm so glad I did :)
Breath of Fresh Air is a really lovely product, I used it in the morning before I went out and it really refreshed and invigorated my skin. You are meant to spray it directly onto you face, and my face felt soft and smooth afterwards, which it hasn't done in a while. It looked less chapped and dry. The sore patches on my cheeks stung a bit when I first used the spray but then they went down loads and this evening they feel a lot better.
On the bottle it says 'the sea breeze captured in a bottle', and I think this is a really good way to describe it. I can't help imagining shells and waves! If you've tried it you'll know what I mean. As a facial cleanser it was great and it opened my clogged pores. The smell wasn't particularly nice, in fact it didn't smell of that much. One of the main ingredients is Aloe Vera gel, which I guess doesn't have much of a fragrance in it. It would be nice if it was lovely smelling too, but it doesn't matter much in a toner.
I would like to try some more toners, any suggestions would be great!
Thanks for reading :)
