Ok, so this is totally gross but this toner has the same texture as saliva. I bought the travel size as I was going away and didn't want to cart large bottles around. I really disliked the fact that it left a residue on my skin. Despite leaving a film on the skin - it's not moisturising. After a few days, I found myself rinsing my face after using it. I definitely won't be repurchasing.
Having been a long time user of SKII's Facial Treatment Essence, but feeling the price increase, I am in the search of a great softening and revitalizing 'leave on' toner. TBS's version is a great value replacement for some of the high-end brands with great ingredient disclosure. Scent is refreshingly citrus.
Being a 101% TBS fan, I will not give any range a miss. Bought the trial set @S$34.90. I find nothing really special on this toner, I need to put alot on my cotton wool in order to be gentle on my skin since this is more gel like (All the toner soaked on the cotton). I very much prefer TBS Aloe or TBS TTO range. which are cheaper and works better.
I got this in the nutriganics gift set for $12 because it was a sale from the body shop. I tried it after using the foam wash by the same brand and found it to be sticky on my face after. I dont like that it doesnt work well with the nutriganics smoothing day cream. It started to produce this weird white peel residue after putting on the day cream. I thought it was just the cream but when I used a 2 different creams, it produced the same white reside. I even tried the nutriganics smoothing day cream after I put on a different toner and the results was totally fine. No white residue therefore I've come to the conclusion that it is the toner that is causing this white reside to appear after putting on any cream. It's too bad that the body shop would create 2 products in their nutriganics line that dont work well together. The only 2 good things that I can say about this product is the fact that it removes any makeup that the foam cleanser missed and the fact that it has a nice green tea smell.
I got this toner in The Body Shop X-mas calender. It's a decent toner although it is a bit too drying, especially now in the winter time when my skin is really dry. It has a light scent to it and the packaging is good.
I gave it to my mother so she can use it instead. I wouldn't purchase this toner in the future. Since my skin is dry I'm having a hard time finding a toner that does not dry out the skin. On the bottle it says that it is good for ageing skin, cannot judge whether it made my skin look younger or not. I didn't use it for enough time to make a firm judgement. continued >>
