Skin Ceuticals Revitalizing Toner Pore Refining Toner
Advantages: Very effective
Disadvantages: Not cheap
This is not the cheapest of products as it generally retails close to £30 for a 240ml bottle however I managed to get it for £21.99 online which is not a bad saving and I have seen it on ebay cheaper than that but I'm never toop confident buying on ebay after a couple of bad experiences.
It is ideal for normal, dry or oily skin and acts as a toner, moisturiser and exfoliator. It is packed with botanical extracts such as cucumber, aloe vera and camomile which are very calming on the skin as well as lavender and thyme. I tend to use it at the end of the day as part of my regime before I go to bed and after I have cleansed my skin. It comes in a white bottle with a black pump action spray and when using this I find that one spray onto a cotton wool ball is enough to cover my face and neck.
It contains hydroxy acids which are intended to exfoliate the skin however I would not want to over estimate the effect of these as I still use a conventional exfoliator when showering a couple of times a week as I do not think you can rely on this product solely as an exfoliator.
I like the natural feel to the product, it is both fragrance free and alcohol free so it is kind to my skin and certainly it is very effective as a toner. After using this I noticed a difference within a couple of days, my skin was a little tighter and the pores were not really visible at all. There is a nice smoothness to my skin and it has a silky feel to it as well. There is a nice healthy glow to my skin and I certainly think that this product justifies the expense.
The packaging is nothing special, functional but not stylish however it is the contents inside that matter and that is what makes this product worth purchasing.
Summary: Good product
