Now, jokes aside - I never realized how much difference can something so seemingly unimportant make. I used to use an alcohol-based toner when I was younger because apparently it was meant to help dry out spots, and I never thought that toners could be for something else. This particular tonic from G Baldwin & Co is alcohol-free and doesn't dry my skin - it actually adds moisture, nourishes and tightens my pores! In addition to that, it adds my routine a sort of a final step - a refreshing step.
Even the list of ingredients makes you feel so fresh & pampered:
➳ Rose water
➳ Lavender water
➳ Aloe Vera juice
➳ Geranium water
➳ Orange flower water
➳ Melissa water
➳ Cucumber extract
➳ Pomegranate extract
➳ Distilled witch hazel
➳ Bilberry extract
➳ Sodium ascorbyl phosphate
I use it with a cotton pad every morning & every evening as a final step of my skincare routine & my skin could not look more grateful. It might be just the refreshing feel that it gives, but even my under eye bags have been looking a tad less horrendous lately!
You can buy a massive 150ml bottle from G Baldwin & Co website here. It costs less than a tenner!
Do you use a toner as a part of your skincare routine?
Or do you consider it as an 'extra' step that you don't need?
