The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

We all know the 3 basic steps to our daily skincare routine should be - cleansing, toning and moisturizing - to keep our skin well maintained. Generally people follow the first and the last step, avoiding the middle one that is toning. Toning is as important as cleansing and moisturizing, let me tell you how: A toner helps in shrinking the appearance of pores on out skin, which prevents the pollution and harsh things around us to enter our pores which cause black heads and acne. (Pretty important, right?)

People with sensitive skin (me being one of them), should always use a toner with a 0% to 10% alcohol level in it. Anything higher than that can cause irritation and flaky skin. Rose water is also a very good substitute for a non alcoholic toner. After trying so many toners I will have to confess that not all of them work, or that not all non alcoholic ones are also non irritable, but in the ones that work wonders, I here have The Body Shop's Vitamin E Hydrating Toner.

It contains Glycerin which helps in maintaining the moisture in the upper layer of our skin (moisture is very important for people who have dry or/and sensitive skin) and Vitamin E which helps reduces discoloration and balances out the skin tone. It has a semi water-gel consistency which is very hydrating and I must say it does not dry out my skin like some of the others did after like 2 minutes of applying it. It smells like baby powder to me, which I would admit is pretty pleasant, but it does not linger for long and sinks in pretty quickly.

I got in on a discount with my The Body Shop Membership Card (read all about it here) for Rs. 716 with a discount of 10% on original price Rs. 795 (Quite a discount!) You can get the toner from The Body Shop Online  or The Body Shop stores near you.

Until next time.
Stay. Incredible
