I give it a 4 star as i found out that it's not paraben free ; ( . but overall this toner really takes out the gunk dirt dead skin from your face whatever cleanser you use this toner will do its job for the remaining residue. id say my skin improves as well using this product for almost 2 yrs now but might as well look out for paraben free toner .
I've been using this product for almost 3 yrs now id say it's the best cleanser i have used so far works well with my skin esp if you're having oily skin as it has this tightening effect after.. i like that it comes as a foam this bottle can lasts up to 5 - 6 mos depending on usage.
I use this product especially if I'm not having enough sleep at night or if i forget to use face mask..first thing in the morning you find your skin looks fresh, supple well hydrated. but for long term i did not find any major improvement on my skin i think it's good if you don't want to look sluggish in the morning.
This is probably the first time I come across a single ingredient product that is completely natural, yet works wonders at soothing, hydrating and protecting the skin. It comes in a hefty 50ml glass bottle with a dropper, and in my opinion, is a steal for the price. I didn't expect much at first, but as soon as I applied it to my face after essence, I knew I scored. The texture is just great - really viscous and bouncy, but not sticky(as long as you don't apply it too thickly). The dropper sort of controls the product, so it's almost hard to pick up or squeeze out too much. I apply 3 to 4 drops to my face and neck, and it spreads out very easily, absorbing pretty fast and leaving my skin super hydrated. Despite me using this serum twice daily, it lasted me almost 5 months. It has a natural, slightly sweet pleasant scent that doesn't linger on the skin. Beta glucan is basically nature's hylaronic acid that plumps the skin from within, preventing wrinkles and strengthening skin barrier. I do feel my skin being soothed and see redness reducing over time. Not to mention it serves as a magnet for the upcoming moisturizer. I also know that some people with oiler skin types skip moisturizer altogether after applying this serum.
I think this is an amazing option for those who are dehydrated and want to improve skin barrier without complicating their skincare routine.
It takes a while to remove the entire make up with this oil and I need to use tons of it ; plus , my sensitive eyes do not love it very much and i find myself with super red eyes for a good hour after using it . It is cheap but also not worth much in my opinion .
Tried this to minimize my skin care routine but my acne has only gotten worse. I threw this away after a week of using. I would rather find another sun screen with safe, non comedogenic ingredients, Also it doesn't absorb well. So, if you are looking for something suitable under makeup, avoid this one!
Feels amazing, removes everything.
Didn't think simply putting an oil cleanser on my face would combat blackheads AND whiteheads all at once. My face is soft and smooth after, can't recommend enough.
This stuff! One pump, rub it between my hands to warm it up, and gently apply it to my face like an iron press and I can ALREADY see my makeup melting off. It is crazy how effective this is! I have cleansed with oils before when I used the oil cleansing method years ago so it felt rather good to return back to those days. The oil doesn't have a fragrance and seems to utilize olive oil as its main ingredient/what it is based off of and it definitely matches the consistency of olive oil, albeit, a tad lighter in viscosity. Watching my eyeliner melt right off my eyes is pretty awesome, but the real magic comes when I close my eyes and literally feel my mascara crust off my lashes and dissolve against the gentle rubbing of my fingertips. Mascara is notoriously difficult for a lot of makeup removers, especially of the wet kind, out there to handle so to rid it so easily is refreshing.
I really like the ingredients in this toner, plus the list itself is very minimal. It comes in a no-frills plastic bottle with a spray nozzle. The mist is fine enough and convenient to use on a cotton pad. It doesn't smell like anything at all.
This toner removes remaining makeup and grime, but not as well as other toners I've tried, possibly due to a high concentration of water + centella asiatica water. I think it's the same reason why this product isn't very moisturizing either, and I always find myself needing more of it to be able to swipe it across my whole face. Therefore, it lasted me only about a month of twice-a-day use. It dries very quickly and doesn't leave any residue. The other good thing is that while using it, my skin condition was stable with no new pimples or texture.
I also tried spraying it on directly for layering, but was surprised that it stung my eyes, so I would only recommend it as a toner. Or spray it on carefully and then go in with a cotton pad, so it doesn't absorb too much of this super watery product.
All in all, this was a decent toner option with very safe ingredients, just not the most lasting or versatile. Will move on to something a bit more hydrating for my dry skin.
