Favourite Toner

Posted by Buls on 8:42 PM in , , ,
For the longest time I used an alcoholic toner. Everyone recommended the same. Whenever I visited the Kiehls store for a skin testing, the SAs would strongly recommend a non alcoholic toner since my skin is sensitive.
Finally, I bought the Calendula herbal extract toner.
Calendula is nothing but marigold- picture below. It is supposed to treat acne, reduce inflammation and also has many other medicinal properties.
The toner has calendula marigold flowers in the toner.

                                                 Calendula marigold in the bottle

The bottle is made of plastic with a flip cap. The cap can also be opened. I have carried it while travelling and there were no spills.
It is priced at Rs 2500 for 250 ml. Very expensive!!! But it lasted 4-5 months.
The toner has a weird smell but it does not transfer to the face. I apply it after facing my wash with a cotton morning and night.
When I used an alcoholic toner, my skin would burn a little. With this toner, there is no issue. It is like applying water to the face.
I won't say it has improved my skin texture because that is not its job. It soothes the skin and closes the pores.

Will I re-purchase? Yes, I have bought another bottle already BUT... it is very expensive and I cannot afford it as part of my regular regime.
Once the current bottle is over, I will be on the lookout for non alcoholic toners.
