I bought this toner after having a lovely Elemis facial in a spa. The therapist gave me a list of the products she used on my skin and I went straight home and bought some of them!
I always cleanse, tone and moisturise but usually I watch the pennies and never spend more than £5 on each! So I thought I'd treat myself.
I use the rosepetal cleanser or the pro-radiance cleanser first (yes, I bought them both!) and then spray the toner over my face and wipe clean with some cotton wool. This is what it says to do on the bottle, but after reading other reviews, I might just spray a little onto some cotton wool first before wiping over my face. Spraying it directly on the face I think wastes alot as you use much more. Plus it can spray everywhere (hair etc) so I think you waste a bit that way. It is very refreshing to spray it on, but maybe by spraying a little directly onto cotton wool and then wiping this over the face would be easier and would make the bottle last longer.
The product comes in a lovely expensive-looking glass bottle with a spray-top. It smells devine and the spray is really light and refreshing.
It isn't cheap but I'll definitely be buying it again. You can get some good bargains online so make sure you have a good shop-around, rather than buying directly from a spa (sorry spas!).
Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner, is the only cleanser where I can say I have noticed a difference it's made to my skin.
I have dry sensitive eczema prone skin and have tried many products in the past ranging from supermarket brands to department store and spa brands.
I've been using this toner along with the recomended Elemis Rehydrating Rosepetal Cleanser for about 2 months now, for the first few weeks I was horrified as to how much dirt there was on the cotton wool pad after using it (I always thought I cleansed my face well), My skin feels a lot cleaner now and I don't know if it's just my imagination, but I feel my skin doesn't need as much moisturiser cream now.
As I said before I cleanse my skin with the recomended cleanser, I massage this into my skin for a few minutes, then remove it with a muslin cloth and warm water, I then moisten a cotton wool pad with the toner and gently wipe this over my face, my skin is left feeling clean and soft, not at all dry or parched like it used to with other brand toners.
This toner is alcohol free, it aims to rebalance the PH level and preserve the natural oils in your skin, it has extracts of ginseng, quillaja wood and sweet betty flower to actively revitalises and nourishes the skin, leaving it radiant and hydrated.
This toner comes in a 200ml spray bottle which costs around £20 if purchased by itself.
I usually buy mine as part of a cleanse and tone kit, it works out a lot cheaper this way.
Once opened it needs to be used within 6 months, you need such a small amount, I'm not sure I'll get through it all.
Elemis do not test on animals, there packaging is recycleable.
