A few weeks ago I sent a question into the Twitter void: What is your favourite toner? For years I’ve been using the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2, but lately I’ve noticed my skin changing (maybe I’m getting old) and I’ve found the Clinique Toner to be a bit harsh for my skin. I needed something that would clean any excess dirt while closing my pores, but at the same time was soothing and gentle on my skin. My friend Alex told me about her love of the Burt’s Bees Rose Water and Glycerin Toner and after a little more research and browsing I decided to commit and give this one a go.
My immediate thought upon removing the packaging was how heavenly this smelled. I love rose, so I knew I’d love using this on a daily basis. During my first few days of use I got nervous that the product was irritating my skin. But after trail and error I realized it was a different product, and the toner actually helped to clear up the irritations once I removed that product from the rotation. I’ve been using the Rose Water and Glycerin Toner for about two weeks now and my face feels wonderful. Not only is it a soothing smell at bedtime, but the product leaves my face feeling clean and smooth and nourished when other toners leave my face feel clean and tight with a lingering alcohol scent. Overall I’m quite please with the product so far and I’m excited to try some more Burt’s Bees skincare.
What are your thoughts on Burt’s Bees?
