Before I proceed with this review, I feel the need to clarify the purpose of a toner. In order to do that, I am going to distinguish between toners and astringents. Toners tend to consist of ingredients that will clear excess impurities that is left behind by cleansers and as well gently nourishes the skin with a slight moisture. Astringents tend to tighten the skin and pores and to remove oil. Toners are best for those who have normal to dry skin while astringents are best for those who have oily skin. Just make sure you check your ingredients because some toners have alcohol in them.
I must admit, I absolutely love Earth Science Aloe Vera Toner. Despite a floral smell, this alcohol free toner was a great intermission to my moisturizing regime. I felt my skin soaked it up and it managed to revitalized and moisturize my skin, leaving my face smooth and ready for my night cream. The smell a bit too floral for my taste, and it only slightly overwhelmed the smell of my night cream. Otherwise, my face felt amazing after using this product. An added bonus is it’s cheap, vegan and cruelty free!
