My friend and roommate, Selena, recently purchased a new toner after loving mine of the same brand. Here’s her review!
I recently purchased Fennel Sage Toner for oily skin from Karen’s Botanicals after using Dawn’s Melissa Rose Toner and absolutely loving it. I didn’t even realize that I should be using toner, until Dawn explained to me that it might help my oily oily skin. I feel like Karen’s Botanicals toner is kind of a miracle product and I tell everyone about it. When I have break outs, they clear up faster and my skin looks way less greasy at the end of the day. I also really like all of the information that comes with the products I ordered. I never knew the difference between a lotion and a cream or why one is better for my skin.
Ingredients (as listed on karensbotanicals.com)- “Sage leaf*, Calendula blossom*, Marshmallow root*, Nettle leaf*, Rosemary leaf*, Comfrey*, Fennel seed*, and fresh Parsley leaf* all infused with gentle heat and light from the sun and moon in Distilled water and Witch Hazel; Aloe Vera gel*, wildcrafted Benzoin gum extract*, selected essential oils. *Denotes certified organic.”
Product Description (also listed on karensbotanicals.com- “A refreshing astringent lotion formulated to reduce oiliness, tighten pores, and deep clean the skin. The unusual blend of Fennel and Sage creates a rich scent reminiscent of anise and an herb garden in the mid-day summer sun. After washing, apply toner to face with a cottonball. Let it dry so that your skin absorbs all of the nutritious compounds supplied by the extraordinary and common plants listed below. Follow with moisturizer for a complete skin care routine. This toner has approximately 8% alcohol from the Witch Hazel. Relative to many other toners, this is a very low alcohol content. Excess alcohol in a toner can be damaging, drying, or irritating, especially to sensitive skin.”
Price- I don’t mind paying $12.50 at all for this wonderful toner.
Performance- I love this toner, but next time I order some I will get the Melissa Rose Toner for combination skin. Although the Fennel Sage Toner does make my skin prettier and less broken out, I think the Melissa Rose Toner actually helped my skin to be less oily at the end of the day.
Scent- I think it smells really nice and not at all like chemicals or old women like most facial products do.
Rating- I would give the Fennel Sage Toner a 9 only because I like the Melissa Rose Toner slightly better.
