The Acid Toning Top 10 was so well-received I thought I’d follow it with the most logical choice. These spritz toners/floral waters are ideal as either a second tone (spritz) or just your general tone for those of you that don’t use acids and/or on days you aren’t using acids.
These are a mix of budget chemist buys and high-end luxury. The differences being that some are water with added minerals such as zinc and magnesium, whilst others have added peptides, rice bran oils, rose oils etc – just more ‘oomph’.
All are used frequently in my routine.
In no particular order.
Bioderma Crealine Eau Dermatologique – a great budget buy – similar to Serozinc except this has added zinc, magnesium and softening sugars including rhamnose. Lush.
La Roche-Posay Serozinc – finally made available in the UK last year, this is great for those of you with combination skin and acne – but can be used by all skins, including the most sensitive.
Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray – reviewed only last month on here, this is borderline liquid moisturiser. Use this if you need a ‘wet’ face after you’ve spritzed. In the best way.
Vita Liberata Skin Plumping Peptide Mist – aloe vera, added peptides, a ton of flower extracts give you this beautiful mist from VL. Their tanning products are amazing but their skincare deserves more attention.
Cowshed Camomile Refreshing Toner – lavender and chamomile waters make this refreshing, soothing and calming. Another good ‘wet’ one.
Caudalie Organic Grape Water – frequently overlooked by the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, this is soothing, calming and very affordable. I use this far more than the Elixir.
Melvita Organic Rose Beauty Mist – rosewater with added glycerin – this packs a little more punch than your regular rosewater. Again, not extortionate, in a tin, great for travel.
Chantecaille Pure Rosewater – a beautiful, luxurious rosewater – usually only available in the summer months due to limited source ingredients, this is one of the Rolls-Royce Rosewaters. it also forms the base water of all Chantecaille skincare.
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist – this is the ‘busiest’ product. It contains everything from Royal Jelly to red algae to green tea to rice extract. Very, very soft on the skin.
Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence – aloe vera comprises the base of this product, making it extremely hydrating and soothing before you even get going with gotu kola, rice extract and willow bark extract. Absolutely beautiful.
N.B. I’m taking it easy on here this week/next as the children are on Easter break. I’ll reply to as many comments/questions here and on social media as and when I can, but it may take a little longer than usual. Thanks!
