I wanna totally duplicate the review Pauw wrote on 9/4/2010 - I feel just the same.
It smells lovely, it doesn't harm skin, but it doesn't make it better.
Well I only got excited to try it out because it had a fairly nice packaging. But let me just do a rundown on my thoughts about this toner.
Doesn't have alcohol so this one doesn't sting
Smell was quite pleasant
Expensive for a toner that mainly consist of water
Doesn't feel like my face is really cleaned
Doesn't do much on my face
So having oily skin but without acne, I could say that this is a fairly good facial spray during humid times, but not toner. Let's be practical in here and be wise on what we buy if we get the quality for our money. I'm sticking to my witch hazel toner which costs more than half less of this toner and does a better job in cleaning and lessing the grease in my face.
This toner is brilliant. I have suffered with adult acne on and off for years and have tried what feels like every treatment on the market. This toner has made such a difference to my skin, improving both the tone and reducing the number of blemished I get. The scent is also lovely and fresh. Very impressed!
THIS PRODUCT IS DEFINITELY WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
I HAVE USED PLENTY OF TONERS IN THE PAST AND THEY ALWAYS USED TO MAKE MY SKIN VERY DRY ( I DO HAVE COMBINATION SKIN BUT THE DRY AREAS OF MY FACE TEND TO GET **VERY** DRY) BUT THIS TONER HAS HELPED MY SKIN TO THE FULLEST!!!
AFTER WASHING MY FACE I SPRAY THIS STRAIGHT ONTO MY FACE AND LET IT DRY!!! MY SKIN FEELS **SUPER DUPER** FRESH AND I HONESTLY DONT EVEN NEED TO WEAR MAKE UP :D MY FACE JUST HAS THIS NATURAL GLOW AND I DO NOT HAVE ANY MORE BREAKOUTS OR PIMPLES (ITS THAT CLEAR).
I USE THIS PRODUCT IN THE MORNING AFTER WASHING MY FACE AND AT NIGHT AFTER WASHING MY FACE (I AM LIKE ADDICTED)!!!!
ALL GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS PRODUCT AND I HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED IT AGAIN AND WILL BE DOING I FUTURE!!!!! :D:D:D:D
OK- so not usually a lush fan- and buying every flipping product you can think of- I decided that maybe my skin needed these natural products. I have oily skin- and prone to break outs. Now- I really don't know if it was using these products- or I just had a bout of beautiful skin or what- I don't know. I purchased angels on bare skin as a morning cleanser, this toner water, along with greased lightening. Well, I had not had a spot, honestly for like 2 months. It was so bizarre. Then what did I do? Leaked all my bottle over a bag I had taken away for the night- HOPELESS. I was not able to buy any more until the week- and what happened after three days??? I GOT TWO BIG UGLY SPOTS!!! I could not wait to repurchase. I put this in the fridge to make it nice and cold- and I am sur ethe tea tree in this is what has helped my skin. I was also trying to budget with my skin care- and for the bottle you get- I think it is great value for money- when you dont spill it. I will be buying this agai.
Quite a gentle toner, but I still question its ability to remove any left over makeup or dirt on my face when I'm cleansing. My skin is amazing at the moment since I've been using it but I still get a few bumps and spots on my cheeks. I much prefer a toner that really feels like it's cleaning my face but I still like how mild Tea Tree Water is on my skin.
It's really great to keep in a bag on a hot day or at the gym and to use it as a refreshing spray.
For what you pay, you get quite a bit of product. I still haven't finished my first bottle after 2 and half months of using it twice a day and on occasions when I've been hiking or outside and felt quite hot.
I can honestly say, I don't think this product will ever be taken out of my beauty routine. This toner has changed my skin for the better. Before I started using the Tea Tree Water, I had dull skin, and lots of breakouts. Post-Tea Tree Water, and my skin has never looked better. I always look bright and awake, even without makeup. My blemishes have been reduced. Instead of spraying this on a cotton ball and applying like I was suggested, I simply spray liberally all over my face, let dry for about a minute, and use my moisturizer to rub in the excess Tea Tree Water. I would reccomend this to anyone.
I absolutely love this product. I was using Mac Fix+ as a toner prior to this, and I thought I would never switch to anything else because my devotion was almost religious. But this product had me at the first spray. It feels soooooo refreshing. It always feels cool, even though it's at room temperature. Also, even though it's a toner, it doesn't make my skin burn or feel dried out. It just leaves my skin refreshed. I actually just spray this on my face instead of wiping it on a cotton pad because it soothes my skin this way. If it gets in your eyes it does sting, so be sure not to spray too much on. It's a little bit pricey for toner, but it's cheaper than Fix+. The packaging gets a 3 because the first bottle of this I bought leaked a lot of product out after I unpacked it from a vacation (so I guess the lid came unscrewed which shouldn't happen that easily). The only reason this product doesn't get a 5 is because it has parabens in it :( That's kind of disappointing from a company that places a lot of emphasis on natural ingredients.
This product was nice for my oily, acne-prone skin. While I don't think it really did much for my acne or pores, I enjoyed using it: it didn't make me break out or irritate my skin. I think it helped out a little bit in keeping the oil and zits under control, but not worth writing home about. The spray bottle was nice -- really refreshing (that smell -- wonderful!), and if it dripped into my eyes it didn't sting. Plus, if I was away on travel and didn't have a cotton pad to apply, all I had to do was spray a light layer onto my face. I enjoy the slight tingle and clean feeling after using this stuff. I LOVE Lush products, but they're quite expensive when you're on a budget. If you can afford to drop more money on facial care products, I'd say give this stuff a try. Otherwise, I bet there's drugstore brand stuff out there that can do as good a job as Lush's Tea Tree Water. (However, Lush's stance on natural products and no animal testing truly are worth spending a little more for!)
I bought a big bottle of this. I'm not sure if this does anything to my skin. I think it does but am not 100% sure. The smell is horrible and may need some getting use to. I think it's a bit pricy for it containing majority of water.
