I wrote a post about what a good facial toner should do for your skin. A good facial toner, adapted to your skin’s needs, is always important.Like I wrote in my post, one of the most important things about a toner is HYDRATION.

Hydrating this toner surely is. Plus, it has some nice plant extracts, like which hazel and iris, to help oily/combination skins to become more balanced. Both ingredients will have a positive effect on pore size, while other ingredients, like glycerin, take care of hydration.


This is a nice toner for any skinthat is in need of light hydration and needs to do something about oilyness or pore size, without using an alcohol-based toner. Alcohol won’t do your skin much good anyay, and especially if you’re oily, it could even make matters worse.

Clarins also makes a “Chamomile” version for dry skin types, which will be reviewed later.

I have both versions and use them off-and-on depending on my (combination) skin’s needs.

Texture :watery

Skin types :all, especially oily/combination (but there’s no harm done if you like this one and have dry skin !)

Strong points :plant based active ingredients

Negative points : couldn’t think of one.
