This product definitely contributed to the radiance in my skin. Actually, I was kind of suckered into buying this toner along with the other products in its line like the the essence and the emulsion. However, I don’t regret buying it at all! It definitely helped make my skin brighter. I can’t say that this by itself did all the work, I have to give credit to the other products I use of course. It might be that it was more effective because I used it with the other products in its line. I did read, however, that using a line does not necessarily mean that the it will be better than if I used a product from the line alone. So, that might not be the case.
I like the smell of this toner. It has a refreshing scent to it. I apply it on my face with a cotton pad, and I notice that it also removes the makeup that was not washed off when I cleansed. I mean, even after using the clarisonic, I still see some remnants of foundation on the cotton pad! So, it’s pretty effective as a last step in my cleansing stage. I usually give my skin time to absorb this- about a minute- before I apply my essence after.
A lot more people, especially my relatives, complimented on how my face looks “whiter” since I started using this. I have to say my skin colour is medium-suntan, I think that’s the most accurate description for it in my words. I don’t really buy any MAC foundations, so I can’t tell you any more accurately than I have. Instead of the term “whiter”, I think it’s more like my skin tone looks even compared to before. I have some hyperpigmentation around my mouth and forehead area which makes my cheeks really stand out. It’s always bothered me, so when I noticed that the hyperpigmentation lightened up a bit, I was quite happy.
I don’t really remember how much I bought this toner because I bought it as a set and there was a 50% discount on them. My guess would be that it would normally retail for $20 and above, but less than $30 for sure. I’ve been using this for about 4 months and I have run out which makes me a bit sad, but I’m excited to try a new toner. I don’t know if I will purchase this again despite its effectiveness because of how pricey it is, maybe if it’s on sale again. But, I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants brighter and radiant skin!
