I bought this toner for winter, when my combination skin starts to feel dry. In summer, when my skin becomes oily, I use some more active toners, like EL Perfectly Clean Fresh Balancing Lotion. I also loved the idea of rose extract in my toner, because I simply adore rosewater and it's healing properties. Refreshing Toner is great. It cleans my skin very well, like any good toner should do. It also makes it less dry after washing - such a nice dewy feeling! My skin gets tighter, more supple and very, very clean. Not to mention the divine smell of roses... It costs around $25-30 on the net. By the way, they changed the bottle - it looks much better now and is very handy for everyday use and travelling. I will buy it again, for sure!
Pressed Powders -Christian Dior - Diorskin Pressed Powder

This powder is a great choice for fair-skinned PPP ladies. I use it for a year now, in 001 Transparent Light, and I'm very happy with results. It's texture is silky-smooth, fine, and really transparent. The color is very natural, and it seems that it adjusts to your skin tone 5-10 min. after applying. I can use it all year round: in winter, when I'm slightly paler, and in summer on my tan. The powder mattifies pretty well, 4-5 hours in summer - but even after that it looks good, and I need just to apply a little more on my T-zone. It stays put, doesn't melt and doesn't change it's color. The packaging is of usual Dior's quality, in a lovely dark blue velvet pouch. Looks so nice in your hands. The only thing I don't like much is the sponge - it's too thin. When I use this product my skin breathes like there's no powder at all. Very light and healthy feeling indeed! This is the main reason why I'm going to repurchase this powder in future. It doesn't clog my pores as well. I have combination skin with occasional hormonal acne, very pale with peachy undertones, and this powder makes it look perfect. But I must admit that it's covering is light and transparent too. Not for very oily or problem skin, I think. It costs $40-45 on the net and for me it's well worth it. Give it a try, it's good!
