Advantages: Thoroughly cleansing, invigorates and refreshes skin
Disadvantages: Totally none
Taking time to choose the correct products for my skin, which I would describe as T-zone is important, so I always ensure that I purchase those that are suited for my skin type. Tempted by the appearance of the packaging, which offers a clean and fresh image in addition to the marketing blurb displayed on the front of the bottle, was the deciding factor for my purchase and this review discusses my experience with using Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Refreshing Toner.
Trust is a word I would use to describe Nivea, a brand who have been producing skin care products for over 100 years, so I felt assured that the toner would assist in keeping my T-zone skin under control. There are three facial products, which form an essential part of my daily routine where I will cleanse, tone, then moisturise and in doing so I am able to effectively manage my skin. Turquoise in colour is the bottle with a clear liquid content with the overall appearance fitting in well with the Nivea brand, which I always consider to be caring for the skin.
Tipping up the 200 ml bottle of toner, which is presented within a sturdy plastic container, enables a small amount of the liquid to be dispensed onto my cotton wool ball via the tiny opening located under the firmly attached flip top lid. This is both easily opened and closed, which is a huge benefit, particularly as I've previously owned many products where the hinged area will snap after only a few uses. Touching my skin with the cotton wool offers a wonderfully cool and refreshing sensation and I am able to witness a delicate and favourable fragrance, which I discovered is natural lotus flower extract that is known for its antioxidant properties.
Thorough cleansing is achieved by applying the toner on a regular basis, where I will use morning and night and I have the assurance that the ingredients, which include vitamins, are caring for my skin. Troubles I experience with some brands are a slight burning sensation due to the alcohol content, which can often cause a little tightness. Thankfully, I cannot admit to suffering any major concerns other than a delicate tingling directly following application, which soon vanishes.
Traces of dirt and grime can often be witnessed on the white cotton wool ball, so the toner is clearly effective at carrying out its job by leaving my skin squeaky clean. Tackiness and residue is evident for approximately five minutes following application; after which the toner dries resulting in soft and smooth skin. True to their word, Nivea have created a product that leaves my skin feeling fresh and invigorated although I'm not sure I could agree with my skin being hydrated as I don't believe toners can achieve this, particularly when they contain alcohol.
Testing has been carried out where the toner has been dermatologically approved. Throwing away the bottle following 12 months of opening is with recyclable waste.
Tesco seems to be the best store to purchase this product as until 28 August 2012 it is listed at half price at £1.49. To save even more money Tesco are currently promoting a Clubcard Voucher Exchange on a larger number of categories; one of which is skincare.
Top marks are awarded to this toner due to the reasons discussed above, as it ticks every box for me and as a result, it receives my full recommendation.
Thanks for reading my review.
