Toners -Clarins - Toning Lotion w/ Chamomile for dry or normal skin

Very nice toner without alcohol, which I like. I use this twice a day in combination with the Gentian cleansing milk for combination skin. The smell is very good and it doesn't irritate my (sometimes sensitive)skin or give me a tightenend feeling. I read that it didn't cleansed enought but a toner doesn't do a cleansing job. It refreshes, closes your pories and restores your pH and takes away the last traces of cleansing milk. The price is OK for a 200ml bottle. I don't like the opening of the bottle because you spoil a little bit when putting it on a cotton pad so you must be carefull. Could be improved on that point.
Very nice sun protector. I never used sun protection after my moisturizer because it made my face too oily and I got break outs. This one is very thin and lotion-like, perfect for me! It sinks in quite fast and doesn't leave a thick layer what you can feel all day. I didn't even noticed I was wearing extra sun protection! You can see a little bit a white dew over your face but it doesn't bother me (that's the con with a mineral sunscreen). You will only notice when you take a look at my face very close. Nice packaging and come out very easy and you can spread it out very easily due to the consistence. It's quite expensive, about 40 euro for 30ml...it will last you quite a long time but still expensive..I will repurchase though. With this moisturizer I can wear high protection without problems.
This is product that will help stopping break-outs I guess, it doesn't made me getting more. It's a little thin, I would only recommend it to oily or combination/ oily skin and only for summer, in the winter this is to thin and the spf is unecessary. But the fact why I would never buy this again is the smell! Yak, it smells very chemical and you smell it all day long. Not my thing.
Very large packaging size, they're telling you to put it always in your purse! Well you must have a large purse...haha It refreshes well and hydrates a bit, I don't like the amount of spray that comes in your face, my whole face is very wet after using it and you must cover your eyes (if you don't want irritated eyes or mascara on your cheeks). Global: I'm not very good in using it I guess... Not very special.
The packaging is very soft, I'm gentle with it because I'm scared to break it open or something. But the eyegel (better name) irritates my eyes a bit, if I apply it in the evening my eyes are a bit irritated in the morning. It leaves your undereye skin soft and hydrated but doesn't do anything to wrinkles or something. A high price for something that isn't very special.
Very nice hydrating mask. Smells very nice and doesn't irritate at all. You can also use it as a night cream for two weeks for a hydrating boost. I've just started using it, as well I can still see some dehydration lines on my face, especially when I lift up my upper lip our make a laugh movement. You can see if you're skin is dehydrated when you pick your cheek between two fingers, if you see vertical lines your skin dehydrated. Not too expensive.
Toners -Givenchy - Toner for Very Dry/Sensitive/Tired skin

Very nice lotion, the original name is Tone It Tender and specially suitable for sensitive skin types. It's very soft and doesn't dry out my skin like most toners do. My skin feels soft after using it, afterwards I use my Givenchy Skin Drink products which is a great combination! Would buy it again.
