18 November, 2014 Shopping My Stash #3
Over the weekend I rediscovered an absolute gem from The Body Shop. My skin has seriously been playing up and I’ve developed really sensitive, dry skin around my nose, cheeks and chin. This weather is buggering up my complexion and I needed a skincare product that would soothe and calm my irritated face, as well as mildly tone and refresh it after cleansing.
The Aloe Calming Toner from The Body Shop is something I usually reserve for after applying face masks, and I often relegate it to the back of my cupboard in favour of more handy, spray-bottle formulas such as the Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic, or the Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater.
As my skin is needing a little extra hydration, this has been perfect for me – I soak a cotton pad with this and then wipe it over my face and neck, and it’s gentle enough to use around the delicate eye area too.
This would suit any skin type as it’s light enough for me when I’m at my normal oil-slick stage, and hydrating enough for more dry skin types too.
This is being firmly placed back into my regular skincare routine, and I’m never letting it out of my sight! You can buy the Aloe Calming Toner here for £8.50.
Have you tried this lovely toner from The Body Shop? I’d love to know what you thought of it if you have, as well as any product recommendations or questions you have for me!
