Product Review: Dr. Skin+ Toner

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

     Hello dearies! How's your week going? My apologies for this uber later and delayed post. I'm still adjusting on my schedule for my father's dialysis and mommy duties. It's not that easy as I think it would be. There were times that I wanted to read blog posts and update this blog before going to bed but waking up the next day with my laptop on stand by mode. So I guess emotional and physical stress is taking its toll on me. I've been experiencing symptoms of flu lately and thank God that I'm still okay. 

     So on to my review, I'm happy with the result of new skin care products that I used on my face and another one on my body. It's been a month and a half since I started using this toner that I'm loving now! I consider this toner as semi-organic because two of the main ingredients were from natural plants like the Camellia Sinensis and Witch Hazel. When I first saw this on my loot bag after the Nicesnssa Online Store Launch I'm giddy to try it the next day after the event but I have doubts since my skin is very sensitive specially when trying new ones. Prolly you know that my favorite and most trusted toner and still using up to now is All Organics Lemongrass Toner. So when I tried Dr. Skin Toner, I can say that this can be a good dupe to my favorite toner or should I say an alternative one week before my monthly period where hormones starting to get wild. Hehehe! Cystic acne and oily skin are the signs that my monthly period will begin in a weeks time so to make an early prevention I decided to use this toner and see if there will be a slight difference. To my surprise there's a big difference! 

     Click read more and see if this toner will be a staple in my cabinet and if I'm going to order another bottle online :D

What I like:
  • The price- very affordable.
  •  I love the cool feeling it gives on my face, very relaxing!
  • There's no weird or funky smell.
  • The bottle dispenses right amount of product.
  • There's a manufacturing and batch number stamped at the bottom of the bottle.
  • No irritations or breakouts or whatsoever.
  • It lessened my hormonal breakouts and keeps the oil at bay.
  • Calms redness on my face.
  • Can be purchased online.
What I don't like:
  • Their branch at Sm Fairview has been pulled out so I have no choice but to visit Sm Megamall branch which is very far from our house. Sometimes online shopping can be very hassle to me :(
Will I repurchase? Yes! I'm planning to restock on this toner. 

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. Even though it's not organic, my skin didn't experience breakouts and irritation unlike other commercial toners that I've tried. I highly recommend this toner specially to those who wanted to keep their oilies at bay and lessen their cystic acne. A word of caution, use the product at your own risk. We have different skin types and needs so what worked for me may not work for you. 

     Do you use more than one toners? Thanks for sharing! Take care loves :D

Good Times!~
