I used Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Toner (review here) for a long time and decided to try something else. I really love Andalou Pumpkin Mask for exfoliation (review here) and gone through multiple tubs of it. So naturally I wanted to try more from Andalou. I replaced my Dickinson's toner with Andalou Toning Refresher for Dry and Sensitive Skin.
It is affordable for less than $10. Since I am trying to make my skincare natural for the most part, it was nice to know that the product is free of petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic colors, dyes, fragrances, triclosan, PEG, MEA, TEA, DEA and parabens. I wish it was also alcohol free though, but I guess I can't have it all.
My skin is the best it has been for years. I believe this toner have something to do with it besides my new moisturizer and some prescription ointments. Anyways, it cleanses skin and leaves it fresh. I use it with cotton pad, but it can be sprayed directly on to the face as the mist is really fine. I did not like the spray packaging initially, because I wanted to use with cotton pads, but now I am used to it.
The only thing I don't like about it is that it stings after application, which is unpleasant. Considering it is supposed to be for sensitive skin, I am surprised how much it stung. I am almost done with this bottle. I was thinking about not repurchasing, but now my skin looks so great, I am repurchasing it for now. Do you have any experiences with Andalou? What have you liked or disliked?
