Although I write for a spa magazine and often test skincare products I am not a girl who grew up with any sort of skincare regime. Probably because my mother, whose skin is still unbelievably gorgeous at almost 78, didn’t have one either. I was never told I had to wash my face before I went to bed, so I never have (unless I have to test facial cleansers).
That said, I have developed an addiction to (alcohol-free) toners. I just like the way they make my skin feel, and that they seem to act as cleanser and make-up remover all in one (not that I wear a ton of make-up). I have a few favorites but my #1, by far, are the Triad Cranberry toner pads by Arcona (you can buy it in normal, pump bottle form as well) and especially now that we’re headed into the hot, humid summer season. This is a light, refreshing, slightly scented product that makes my skin feel fresh and clean.
Not cheap but so worth it, and great for travel.
The nitty gritty on ingredients:
Cranberry, Vitamin E, Omegas 3, 6 and 9 and rice milk.
