  1. So many options to consider from for dry skinned people like me. Of these, I have tried The Body Shop and Sukin and they are quite good. My favourite, for years, has been the pink Lancome bottle of Tonique Confort. It is pure hydration in a bottle that my skin loves

  2. I’ve never used a toner. I’ve tried plenty, but they all made my skin break out. But I’ll admit that it was a long time ago. There’s quite a few here that look interesting. Something to reconsider perhaps.

  3. Really like the whole Body shop Vitamin E range and highly recommend the toner especially for those with sensitive skin. I use these products on my 81 year old mums skin as well and they are so soothing.

  4. I use rosewater that come in big glass bottles, from ethnic supermarkets. Pop it into indigo (uv safe) glass fine mist spray and voila, diy rose mist toner. It is sweet smelling (like real crushed rose petals), soothes the skin and rehydrates my skincare during the day. Plus so refreshing. And edible

    If I get my hands on that Ella Bache one (oooh, the bottle looks pretty), would not mind… being a bit boujee =D

  5. When I was at the spa the other day they informed me that my skin is Normal/oily which surprised me as I would have said normal/dry. But at the same time they said hydrating products are good.

  6. Tagging this for later reference. I have an Andalou toner that I occasionally remember to use at the moment and it does a decent job. If I ever get through it I’ll come back and look at the options here.

  7. I don't use toner as regularly as I did when I was younger; only now and again. The ones I use aren't found on store shelves. They are both from L'Oreal Paris. The Revitalift Rejuvenating Toner I bought online and the Revitalift Anti-Aging + Firming Aqua Milky Toner, I bought Overseas. The only reason I bought these was to use it in conjunction with my other L'Oreal Paris Revitalift skin products to complete the full skin care regime.
