Like most women, I will sometimes shop around for new skin care products when I need one. Technology and developments are constantly changing in skin care products, so I think it’s best to see what new skin care products are available for my skin. With my aging skin, I need all the help that skin care products can give me to keep my skin looking healthy.
I usually shop at natural food stores for my skin care products and that’s where I found the Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener by a company called Earth Science which is in Santa Barbara, California. Aloe vera is well known for its healing ability and positive effects on skin. I decided to try this aloe vera skin care product and am glad that I did.
After applying the Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener, I did notice how smooth and silky it made my skin feel. My skin absorbed this aloe vera toner quite easily and did not feel dry or like it needed a second application of toner. It felt good, so I went ahead and applied my daily moisturizer. That was a month ago. I waited to report on this skin care product because I do have sensitive, dry, aging skin and wanted to make sure that I didn’t break out or have some kind of reaction to this product. As we get older, our skin becomes drier and more sensitive and it’s common for a bad reaction to happen when applying a new skin care product. After a month, it’s safe to say that this aloe vera skin care product works great.
The first thing I noticed on the bottle of Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener is that it’s alcohol free. Since I no longer need alcohol to keep pimples at bay, this is perfect for me. Alcohol is a drying agent, and I don’t need that. Besides aloe vera juice, this skin care product also contains algae extract, panthenol, kelp, calendula flower extract, grapefruit seed extract, lavender, and retinyl palmitate along with some other by products. This aloe vera toner has basically no scent which I also like.
Here’s a helpful tip when applying a toner to your face: Even though the directions on the bottle tell you to saturate a cotton ball with the toner and then apply it to your face, don’t do this. Most of the toner will stay in the cotton ball, so you wind up wasting it. Instead, purchase a small empty cosmetic spray bottle from Walgreen’s or CVS and fill it with the toner. Lightly spray your face with the toner and then use your clean fingers to massage it into your skin. There’s no waste and your skin gets all the toner, not the cotton ball. With this particular toner, you need very little to moisturize your face.
I bought this Aloe Vera Complexion Toner & Freshener at my local Natural Grocers store and it cost under $10. I used to buy my skin care products at cosmetic counters in big name stores like Jordan Marsh or Filene’s, but I prefer looking for more natural ingredients in my skin care products. Aloe vera is a great ingredient to look for when buying skin care products.
I really like the silky feel of this aloe vera skin care product and the fact that it hydrates my skin. If you’ve ever cut open an aloe vera leaf, you know that it has a gel like substance and a silky texture to it. This aloe vera skin care product is wonderful and I do recommend it especially if you live in a dry climate and/or have dry skin.
