Hello Lovely Ladies!❤❤❤
Good day to all! 🙂
Choosing a HG(Holi Grail) Product for our skin is no easy task! 😛
And If you are an Oily-skinned person like me, you must be knowing the constant struggle we have to face while choosing Skincare products for ourselves! 🙁
I generally tend to buy anything that promises to keep my sebum secretion in check only to get disappointed later on! 🙁
After Years of Trial and Error, I have discovered quite a few Products that actually work for me! 😀
Today I will be writing about a Toner from my collection which is a PRO at its job! ❤❤❤

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Till date I have tried on Toners from many different brands.. From Ayur to Keya Seth to fabindia and many more!
But only a few have actually succeeded in impressing me… Biotique’s Cucumber toner, that I am going to review today, being one on them! ❤
So, this Cucumber toner comes in a minty green bottle with a bottle-green cap, that is quite common to all the BIOTIQUE products, and an outer cardboard packaging! All the details about the product are mentioned on both the outer box and on the bottle itself! ❤
The toner has a mild but soothing and refreshing fragrance, that won’t be hurting the sensitive noses! Also, it is transparent and watery; and doesn’t really sting.. ❤
On applying this toner, my face felt a bit stretchy, which makes me doubt about it containing some amount of alcohol! 🙁 So, I guess this toner would not suit normal to dry skinned beauties at all… (It is not meant for them, anyways! 😛 )
Now, my face starts getting oily within 30 minutes of washing my face (Exceptions being really cold Winters and A.C. rooms! 😀 ) But upon applying this toner, I couldn’t find any hint of oil on my T zone for atleast an hour… After which the oil started appearing gradually! ❤
So, although the drying part is a CON for me, its ability to control my sebum secretion makes up for it! ❤
(Also read my review over Mitti Se Rose Water here..)
SUMMING DOWN PROS AND CONS:
1. Inexpensive and easily available. Buy it from here…
2. Soothing fragrance that it quite relaxing to the senses.
3. Controls sebum secretion efficiently. ❤
1. Makes my skin feel a bit dry and stretchy.
2. Might contain Alcohol.
FINAL TAKE: I really love this toner as it helps control the oil secretion on my face. The drying part is not really important for me as I follow it up with a Moisturizer. But it might be quite drying for normal skinned girls!
Hope It Helps ❤
