As you'll know from my previous Battle of the Cleansers post (HERE), I am currently on a skincare mission. I have basically good skin, but I know if I look after it better, it will thank me for it in the long run.
So, I have been properly cleansing, and moisturising and have recently added toning into the equation.
I will admit, I don't really get this Toner business. Tightening the skin? Ummm Ok but I don't really like tight skin and instantly want to slather moisturiser on it to sooth the tightness. I've half looked into this terribly important matter but I'm still not 100% clear. If you know more about why it's important to tone or what precisely it does for you, puurrlleeaasee let me know because I'm just being a bit of a beauty sheep and doing it because I feel I should! Ha.
So, on Boxing Day I bought a 250g bottle of Lush Breath of Fresh Air Toner. I would love to tell you how much it retails for but the Lush website is still down due to hacking. I think maybe the £7-8 mark. Hoowwwweevvveerr, prepare to be jealous.....I got it for free!!
How cool is that? I don't know about you, but I really do think Lush are good to their customers and that's definitely part of what makes me go back there so often. That and I luuurrrvvee the products of course!
I have been using this toner regularly (not everyday, slaps wrist) for about a month. Now, I really like it, it smells fresh, doesn't irritate my skin at all, makes me feel like I'm doing the right thing skincare wise annddd apparently is boosting my face with vitamins and all sorts of goodness. That's it.
I haven't noticed anything different, good or bad, in my skin. I feel pretty 'meh' about it all. I have tried applying it in a variety of aways- spraying directly onto skin, spritzing on dry or damp cotton wool and applying to face and even squirting onto my hands and patting on.
So really, I'm throwing the ball in your court dear Bloggerinos, what shall I do? Am I doing it wrong? I want to join this Toner club but can't find the bloomin' door!
