Company Says: - Finding a good toner is like finding a needle in a stack of hay :P But luckily I found my HG when I was some 15-16 years. Though I have been using different toners from varied brands, liking some and despising some, I always come back to Oriflame Pure Nature Organic Aloe Vera & Arnica Extract Soothing Toner. The packaging of this toner has changed over the years, when I first started it came in a squarish flatish (hope it makes sense) bottle but now it comes in a bright green tall plastic bottle with a screw on cap and a stopper to control the flow of product. The toner looks like water and like most other toners is runny (think water). The fragrance is very similar to the face wash from this range, herbal scent topped with a dash of citrusy note. The formulation and quality of this toner remains the same, thanks to Oriflame for this versatility.



                       The fragrance lingers on for some times after application then gradually fades off. I wash my face with face wash/cleanser and then apply this toner with a help of a cotton ball, let it work for a couple of mins and apply my moisturiser. And in those couple of minutes I can feel it working on my skin and upon application it gives a cool and refreshing feel to my skin. It tightens the pores and I can actually feel it happening. It keeps oil at bay from around 3-4 hours which is great for any toner. This toner does not dry out my skin; I use it twice or thrice a day. Very little product is required for one use and therefore the toner lasts for a good many months (3+ months). So the price of Rs 279 is not an issue and seems to be quite affordable.




                       The ingredient list is impressive and the best part is that this toner suits me to the T, both in summers and in winters. My pores are visibly reduces in sized and my face looks and feel much smoother after using this toner. It does not sting like other toner does, and it’s extremely gentle on my skin. This toner does not cause any irritation or redness on my skin. I love it and declare it as my HG (Holy Grail) toner. I don’t use this toner all the time, since I love experimenting with toners different brands.  The only bad bad point of this toner is the inclusion of Parabens in the ingredient list. But the best point is its alcohol-free and is extremely mild on my pimples and does not harm them.

Pros: -


* Alcohol-free toner, mild and gentle

* Gives a cooling sensation to my skin upon application

* I can feel it working on my pores and tightening them

* The fragrance is not very great but it’s very refreshing

* Never did harm my skin in any way or made it dry/stretchy

* Gentle on my dear pimples :P

* Available on offers, just keep a watch on the Oriflame catalogue

* Suitable for all skin types, also pimple-prone skin like mine

* Does not leave behind any residue/stickiness, dries off quickly

* Travel-friendly & hygienic packaging



Cons:-


*Contains Parabens


                I rate this Oriflame Pure Nature Organic Aloe Vera & Arnica Extract Soothing Toner 4.75 out of 5. It’s really difficult to give such high rating to a toner but I do not have any options, have to since it’s the best one I have ever used. Well I am greedy and I do keep trying other toners as well. As I am writing this review I am deciding which brand to play with next :P :D ;) Anyways this is an absolute must try products for all skin types baring very dry skin. it is specially superb for pimple-prone skin like mine.


Hope you enjoyed my review, do leave behind your precious comments and share with us experiences with alcohol-free toners. Thank you and have a good day
