Lancôme Tonique Radiance

without comments

Toner was always something I never paid that much attention to in my younger years, and now that I’m past the young adult phase of my life, it’s time to put more effort into taking care of my skin. Having said that, I started paying more attention to toners. I originally used Clinique’s Clarifying Lotion 2, because my mom would give me the sample bottles from her bonus kits. I used this on and off during my university days, and continued to use it for several years after that. It doubled as a makeup remover, even though I’m pretty sure that’s not what it’s supposed to be used for. After years of using the same thing, I wanted to try something new.

I first bought this just over a year ago, when Lancôme was selling their larger bottles sizes for a cheaper price. I bought one and tried it out, and loved it. I’ve since tried other toners as well, but I ended up coming back to this one. And here I will explain why.

 

The Packaging

The bottle itself has a light blue tinge to it, with an embossed image of the famous Lancôme rose.

The cap is reflective, with another embossed Lancôme rose at the top.

Twist off the cap and you’ll find an inner seal. Bonus points for sanitary control!

With that inner seal gone, now we can get to the actual product!

 

The Product

The bottle I have contains 200ml of toner. Upon opening it, I’m treated to a fragrance note of white lotus, which is very pleasing to my nose. Lancôme’s website claims that this exfoliating toner will help speed cell turnover to improve skin tone, texture, and clarity. I like it because it removes all excess oils from my skin and you can see those results on your cotton pad. After using it, my skin feels cooled, refreshed, and ready for the next step! Using this has made my skin looking and feeling more radiant.

A word of caution to those with broken skin – it will sting! I made the mistake of popping a pimple and then using toner and wow did it sting! If your skin is normal, you will be fine. But if there’s any broken skin anywhere, don’t say I didn’t warn you!

 

The Verdict

Those with normal skin looking for a refreshing toner and a more radiant skin, this toner is for you! If you can wait until December/January, that is when Lancôme releases their larger sized bottles at a reduced price. This way, you’ll get more bang for your buck!
