Tesco Cucumber Toner
Advantages: The price, removes all traces of make up, gentle on my skin
Anyone who reads my reviews on a regular basis will be aware of the fact that I use a lot of products from Tesco's own range, and their beauty products are no exception. I always feel that generally speaking, they represent excellent value for money and they are nearly always a great quality product. I like to use a toner after I have washed or cleansed my face and as I have used a few products in the 'cucumber' range from Tesco I decided to give this a try.
I have been using it now for quite a while and if I were to compare it to the cucumber toner I have used from Boots, then I'd have to say that I prefer this one. The packaging is plain and simple and the toner itself costs only 80p for a 150ml-sized bottle.
I use this toner much like I use any other of my facial toners. It's in a watery liquid format and I apply it to cotton wool balls and gently glide it across my face and neck (avoiding the eye area, as it advises on the back of the bottle). The toner smells and feels both fresh and clean and it certainly removes all traces of make up and grime that I am not able to remove with either soap and water or with one of my facial washes. It has a very mild tingling effect whilst it is drying on my skin, but what I really like about this toner is that fact that it doesn't make my skin feel tight, dry or dehydrated. With a lot of the cheaper brands of facial toners, I find that they can be quite harsh and astringent and they can have a really unpleasant drying-out effect on my skin.
This toner is really mild and gentle and yet it's also effective in that it removes al traces of grime and debris. It never leaves a sticky or tacky feeling on my skin after I have used it and also it is suitable for even the most sensitive of skins and it's been dermatologically tested.
For only 80p a bottle, I really do think this toner compares very favourably with the more expensive brands out there. I really cannot recommend it enough.
Summary: Just as good as the more expensive brands
