I have sensitive, acne-prone combination skin. I have been using this toner water for 2 years as part of a twice-daily regimen, beginning with Lush's Angels on Bare Skin, then the toner water, then Lush's Vanishing Cream moisturizer. Before I started this regimen, I had suffered from severe cystic acne for 12 years. My dermatologist told me my final option was Accutane, which I declined to use. I'm still shocked that after all those medical approaches, Lush is what cured my face.
Here's a before & after photo for you:
(In the second two photos, I'm also wearing Bare Minerals original foundation, mineral veil, and and warmth bronzer.)
--- easy to use with no mess -- just a few quick sprays and I'm done
--- calms my skin and prevents break outs
--- gentle with no chemicals (doesn't make my face burn!!)
--- can be used on legs, pubic area, etc. to prevent ingrown hairs (it makes a big difference!)
--- can be sprayed on your back to clear up acne / remove black heads (did this with my bf)
--- seems kind of expensive, but usually lasts me about 4-5 months, which is ~$5.48 per month.
--- not easy to travel with unless you buy the little bottle, but it's overpriced; I recycled an older travel-sized spray bottle instead.
This is one Lush product that I have consistently repurchased. Not only does it smell beautiful, it is really an excellent toner and spot treatment for little blemishes. It's also nice to spray on my face after a stressful day, the smell makes me feel very relaxed for some reason. I tend to use 3-4 sprays over my face after cleansing or using a mask. Sometimes I use it after taking a shower as well. I've never had a problem with break-outs as a result of using this, in fact, the tea tree oil in this tends to calm down any bad skin I have.
I love this product! Pure goodness in a bottle. This toner is very refreshing, I love spraying this on my face 4 to 5 times at the end of a long day. It calms my skin plus I love that I dont have to use cotton to apply this. Spraying is so much better! Although I cant seem to tell whether this helps in eliminating acne, I will continue using this bec it's refreshing and for it's antibacterial properties. Alcohol free toners are so much good for the skin it's not harsh and never leaving my face so tight and dry (which results to more oil i think)
Makes my skin feel amazing. Keeps me matte, refreshes when applied and works well.
Well, as nice and refreshing as this feels to spray on my face, I find that it really does nothing for me, good or bad. I could just spritz water on my face for the same effect :( I do love the bottle and the spritzer is just perfect, so when this runs out I plan to reuse the bottle for other purposes.
Best toner I ever tried. Keeps me matte all day and helps with blemishes, but is hydrating at the same time (not oily)
Honestly, I didn't find that it did anything for me. I have acne-prone skin and I still prefer using good old witch hazel as my toner. I find that this makes me more dewy than I would like.
A GREAT product for my spot prone skin, it has vastly improved the condition of it and I have been using it religiously.
This is my go to toner.. I've loved and used this product many times and been through many bottles... I need tea tree for my skin.. I bought the body shop tea tree toner and that just killed my skin!! So I went right to this one which really helped...
On the other hand I use Clinique clarifying toner which helps me so much more.. but that's when I can afford to buy the bottle... otherwise I stick to LUSH. x
While I really wanted to love this, it broke me out pretty badly on my forehead. I didn't change anything in my routine other than this, so I'm pretty sure it was this. I do sometimes like to spray a little of this on my nose because it helps keeps it looking less oily, but I will not repurchase. I'm not even sure what to do with my mostly full bottle now.
