A Budding Romance with Fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner?
While I’ve never been convinced toners are an absolute necessity in every single skincare regime, I personally like using one as quick way of making sure I’ve removed all makeup/dirt. And (in the case of the gentlest toners) for adding a little extra hydration pre-moisturiser.
So to keep things as simple as possible I try to stick to fairly natural formulas, like Fresh Beauty’s Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner (from £21 for 100 ml, Space NK).
Fresh Beauty Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner
In addition to its insanely photogenic looks (making me feel like a 1920s socialite when I use it), this toner also boasts glycerin (to soften) and Rose Damascena flower water (to hydrate).
Finally, Angelica extract (a Japanese herb full of polyphenols and vitamins…also the name of one of the Rugrats- who doesn’t love a 90s cartoon?) soothes and hydrates.
I’ve included the full list of ingredients at the bottom of this post.
As a result, after sweeping over cleansed skin, this fluid leaves a gentle sheen of hydration in its wake, as well as a delicate, rosy scent (which is surprisingly less fresh and green smelling, and more slightly old-fashioned)
And as an added bonus, I also really like that this is available in a 100 ml travel size so I don’t have to leave it behind when going away.
Great for: Hydrating and removing the last traces of makeup and cleanser.
Not-so-great for: Budget buys, as this is a pretty expensive toner.
