Before anything else, I would like to thank my hubby for encouraging me to blog about everything and anything that interests me. I'm so lucky to have a supportive husband who sometimes became my fashion and beauty guru although there were times he refuses to because he thinks it's a girl thing. Finally, I decided to do my first review on one of my skin care product that I've tried and tested. It's one of those skin care must haves- facial toner.
I know that there are a lot of us who sometimes skip the basic skin care routine of cleanse, tone and moisturize because we are lazy after a long day of work or simply we feel really sleepy. I'm guilty of doing this back when I was in college so when I decided to take good care of my skin after suffering from adult acne I searched for different skin care products. I tried several brands like Pond's Toner in pink and blue, L'oreal White Perfect Active Whitening Toner, toners being sold by dermatologists and Dickinson's Witch Hazel Toner in blue and yellow variant. I can say that some of this gave me cystic acne, some strips of the natural oil of my skin and does have that funky smell.
So a year ago, I decided to try organic stuffs and stumbled with All Organics Bath and Body Wellness Essentials. This brand sells different organic products from soaps, lotions, scrubs, mineral make-ups and baby stuffs. The product that I will be reviewing is from the Lemongrass Line.
The Lemongrass line was inspired by the hardworking farmers of Negros who toil the earth to support their families. We pledge to support these farmers by expanding the use of Lemongrass and give back portion of sales to their community. This line includes: Lemongrass pure essential oil, facial care- pimple and acne relief, daily needs- hand sanitizer, mouth wash, breath freshner, whitening deodorant, foot spray, hydramist, relaxation- massage oils, relaxing massage cream, mood spray, soaps- liquid coconut castille soap, clean rinse, throat spray and Itcho's oil.

The Lemongrass line is composed of different products that I think suits different kind of skin care needs. I think that purchasing one of the products from this line is worth it not just because it is affordable, we are also helping our fellow farmers in their livelihood. It's like using the product for a cause.
So now I present to you their Lemongrass toner from the Lemongrass Line which I really love!

What I like:
- Cool minty feel after use.
- Leaves my face fresh and keeps the oil at bay.
- Three sprays on my entire face is enough so the product lasts me for more than 4 months.
- I tried to use it as cleanser and it works well too.
- Inexpensive at 155 pesos for a 100ml toner that really works.
- After finishing one bottle, I can say that it keeps pimple causing bacteria because I rarely get pimples now.
- As for the smell, i find it tolerable because it fades easily after patting the toner on my face.
- Comes in a travel friendly spray bottle.
- Batch number and expiration date is printed on the bottle.
What I don't like:
Will I repurchase? YES
I give this toner a 5/5 rating. I'm on my third bottle of this toner now. This is definitely one of my tried and tested skin care product. This product really works for me. I've been using this for a year now and because of it's cooling and soothing effect, I also use this as a spot treatment whenever a new reddish pimple comes out. I think I found my HG toner and will take me years before searching for a new one.
I highly recommend this product to those who have oily, acne-prone and combination skin. I'm sure everyone will enjoy spraying this on their face during summer or when the weather is hot because it really gives the cooling sensation on your face. As for the first time users with sensitive nose, the smell of this toner is a bit off. I think you will be used to it after 5 or more uses.
Natural products can also cause irritation and allergies. We have different skin types and what works for me may not work for you. It is better to research on the ingredients first and see if your allergic to one of its components.
Thank you for reading my post. Have you tried organic toners? If yes, can you share it to us? Have a great day everyone!
