Good evening Beauties around the world.
Thanks for being such a great sport and supporting my blog as much as you do. It means a lot!
Today I would like to share with you the little secrets about my most favorite toner of the year 2012.
I know most of us are using some kind of toner after taking the makeup off. Some of the most raved ones this year are probably the
Eau de Beauté by Caudalie, Pore Refining Toner by Sanctuary, Cucumber Face Toner by The Balm and Toning Lotion w/ Chamomile for dry or normal skin by Clarins.
Why should i use a facial toner at all, you might ask? In my experience it helps to control the dirt and oil of your skin and at the same time it also shrinks your pores ( no one likes having huge pores around the nose and chin area!) And another good reason is to restore the pH balance. Don’t forget that by using all the different soaps, face washes ect you disturb this natural balance – even if you’re actually trying to keep your face healthy and clean. That are at least my reasons.
And now back to Kiehl’s.
I have never used Kiehl’s products before, but heard so many great things about this brand and it’s products.
So I was incredibly happy when I got this 50 ml (1.7 fl. oz.) bottle in a beauty box to try.
(I’m wearing Victoria’s Secret: To die For on my nails)
First of all, it’s an antioxidant toner, that helps to balance and refine skin’s texture. It can also be used at any time as a refresher, which is a big plus especially during hot summer days. In my experience it helps to cool & calm my skin down a lot better than just the normal thermal water. (Btw: I have a sensitive & combination skin)
It’s 100% natural origin ingredients and 77,1% of the total formula is organic; paraben & silicone free.
It contains Açaí berry, fruit waters, flowers, leaves and stems of plants, lavender and leaf oils.
It mostly smells like lavender to me, which I personally love, as well as the fact, that it comes in a recyclable spray bottle.
This toning mist leaves my face completely refreshed with a feeling of a “breathing & healthy glowing skin”. If i touch my face after the mist soaked in completely, it feels like pure silk – and i’m loving it!
So as you can probably imagine, i will definitely be purchasing a 180 ml (6.0 fl. oz.) full size bottle soon.
Hope you give it a try. If you do, let me know about your experience.
In case you are a fan of Kiehl’s products, or have some kind of other magical weapon, please share your secrets with me.
