We often neglect the toning part in our basic CTM skincare routine. But definitely toner makes a huge difference when used regularly.  I bought The body shop seaweed oil balancing toner during one of my regular visit to the Mall.

My views on The body shop seaweed oil balancing toner

I use this toner in my morning skincare routine. I take a little bit of the toner in a cotton pad and wipe it all over my face and neck. Post using this toner, my skin feels fresh and oil-free instantly.

With regular use, I can see a subtle glow on my skin which I love. I love using this toner with powder cleansers. When used along with powder cleansers, it helps to reduce acne and also keeps skin oil-free for longer hours.

The body shop seaweed oil balancing toner review

The body shop oil balancing seaweed toner helps to remove the last trace of dirt from the skin. One thing I noticed is it doesn’t help with preventing acne or drying out existing acne. So If your skin is prone to acne every now and then, then this is not the right pick.
