So, this was one of the finds in Malaysia. And, somehow, even though my skin is dry, it has always loved alcohol toners. I know it sounds weird and I can not really explain why either. Apparently, alcohol is supposed to strip the skin off its lipids and everything else and make your skin extremely dry and prone to bacteria.
But, for me, I think it just restores my skin’s pH (I am not claiming it, this is just what I think) and makes my skin better by removing the dead skin cells and excess oils and then I immediately apply my serums and replenish the lost moisture. So yes, I do not feel dry or dehydrated or stretchy at any point of time.
The result was the same once when I had a chance to use the Clinique toner once upon a time. My skin loved it. Also, I have to mention that I use this toner only when I double cleanse my face after removing the sunscreen. I try not to use the alcohol toner regularly. Instead, I use hydrosols or floral waters to dampen my skin before following up with my night skin care routine.
Oh yes, I use toners only at night. In the morning, I try to keep my skin care routine simple as sunscreen application itself takes me quite a long time, though I am getting better at it now!! And, I am almost done with this product so no more alcohol toner available for me to use either. I would not buy one just to be on the safer side!!
