The Body Shop is an amazing brand with amazing products, and their Nutriganics Refreshing Toner is a great example of their fabulous skin care lines. I have combination skin that seems to fluctuate on a seasonal basis, so I can't normally use the same products year round, but this toner is an exception for me. It's part of their Nutriganics skin care line, which is aimed at women in their mid to late twenties who are experiencing the first signs of aging.
Refreshing and moisturizing toner
Even though toner is one of those skin care regime steps that a lot of people skip, with this toner, I make sure I get that toning stage in every night! Toners are meant to help remove any excess makeup or impurities still on your face after cleansing, while also soothing your skin, and this one does just that. It has a lovely, fresh and clean scent; it's ingredients include thyme, mallow flower, aloe vera, and buddleja (also known as "butterfly bush"), creating a smell that reminds me of herbs and lemon. The viscosity isn't as thin and astringent-like as some toners, and it doesn't feel like you are stripping away your skin's natural moisture. It feels hydrating and moisturizing and refreshing. It's definitely more expensive than what's available at pharmacies, but I also like to support The Body Shop because of their company values, and they're always having different sales, so you can stock up on your favourite products when the price is right.
