Toning has always been a step I've missed out, not one I've been religiously sticking too despite reading a whole ton of articles about the benefits. I purchased the Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile almost six months ago so here I am sharing my two cents on the product.
Its in a clear bottle, showing you the yellow colour of the product. Other toners are clear, blue, green etc in the Clarins range. It has a water like consistency and I apply it to a cotton pad and sweep across my face. I do this in between cleansing and moisturising about twice a week. I don't feel like I need to tone that much, personally, but I do think you could use this product every day if you wanted to as it's that gentle.
As it's for normal/dry skin it is super gentle and not at all stripping on the skin. I used to find toners would dry out my already dehydrated skin (it's important you know that I don't get dry patches of skin so I'm not sure how this product would work for dry skin, just my thirsty dehydrated skin). Its just another step in a skin routine to help fight my winter issues such as dryness and acne. This has no effect on my acne at all and in fact doesn't particularly help with dryness either, but it doesn't cause any of these problems either. For me this is not a product I couldn't live without and I regularly do. Im not sure if ill be repurchasing this either, as nice as it is. Maybe I'm just not a toner person.
I'd love to know if you've tried this product?
