I'm sure you are aware that I have switched all of my skincare to all natural products, mostly Indie Lee. How every she doesn't currently offer a toner and I am a former Clinique Clarifying Lotion addict, so I like to apply something in between my cleanser and my moisturizer.
During my last Shea Terra haul I ordered Orange Blossom Pure Distillate Water, a 100% natural astringent for oily and acne prone skin. Used the same way Clarifying lotion; apply this hydrosol from Morocco to a cotton round and rub over face in circular motion to remove debris from my pores, I was a bit skeptical because it is alcohol free and I very much enjoy the cooling feeling that evaporation provides. I was also skeptical about the smell. I am not really a fan of orange blossom so I was hoping it didn't smell like a flower bomb and it doesn't - it is more of an herbal floral as it is authentic and not perfumed.
I was my face a usual and I cover the vessel with a cotton round and tip over, reposition the cotton round and tip over again, giving me 2 spots of toner. I apply it to my face with slight pressure and sweep it over in a circular motion, avoiding my eye area but not forgetting my neck. I wait hoping I do not encounter that 'sticky' feeling most alcohol-free toners leave behind. It never comes. It dries down clean and and does not leave any residue or scent. I could, almost immediately, apply my eyecream and moisturizer.
The 4oz vessel is made from brown glass with a screw top. I highly recommend this Distillate Water and rate it a coveted 5 out of 5 stars. I have ordered a second bottle as it is now part of my staple skincare.
