I haven’t done a Faux Product Review in ages! How have you survived? Have you struggled to be beautiful? My apologies. So, why do you need facial toner? I don’t know, maybe to remove dirt, oil, makeup and dead skin, shrink pores, restore balance and protect and replenish skin? For whatever reason, I came across Mario Badescu’s Aloe Vera Toner and because I had money to blow (thanks to sister-in-law gifting me a Nordstrom gift card), I bought it!
Anyway, the description:
Mario Badescu’s mildest toner for the most sensitive, dry and delicate skin. Soothing aloe vera formula reduces irritation and redness while removing pore-clogging residue from skin’s surface.
So, I selected this toner over the others because it doesn’t appear to be harsh, has Aloe Vera in it (duh) and I fairly trust the brand (Read: Faux Product Review 31: Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray w? Aloe, Herb & Rosewater).
I had zero expectations. I didn’t think I would notice a difference but by morning, my skin was noticeably smoother. It will take a bit longer for me to determine if it is providing me with the results described but for 15 bucks, you’ll get a giant bottle of this toner and at the rate I’m going (squirting it on a cotton ball twice a day), I expect it to last at least 3 months. Oh and you don’t have to shop at Nordstrom for this toner, it’s also at Ulta. You’re welcome.
