My Opinion:
This is not your usual toner, this has a very thick texture which is more like a watery gel instead of water. I've started by applying it with my hands and hated the result, it took ages to absorb and it left my skin very sticky, I've set it aside and never touched it again.
Recently my skin was kind of dry, so I've started to use it again, and for this time I've decided to apply it with a cotton pad and the result was just amazing. My skin felt hydrated immediately after application, and seriously no toner has ever given me immediate hydration, I always though that was suppose to be the job of a serum.


  1. Hmm, interesting. Lettuce and cucumber, that is so cool :-)
