HOW MUCH IS IT?
£13 for 150ml I got mine from Escentual
Over the last year and a half I have really upped my game on skincare front. I used to literally wash my face with a face wash and then put a slick of moisturiser on my face, job done. Nowadays my routine goes something like; double cleanse, acid toner, hydrating toner, eye cream, serum, moisturiser! It may seem extreme putting this much on my face but I am in my 30's now, i'm not getting any younger and you only get one face so we should really look after it!
An acid/exfolaiting toner was the only thing that was missing in my routine and I had heard great things about the REN clarimatte clarifying toner. I have to be honest I was a little concerned that it would sting and irritate my skin but I was pleasantly surprised when it felt really lovely and refreshing on the skin. I do feel like my skin has got more of a glow to it since using this. I'm not sure whether this is because I follow it up with a hydrating toner (Body Shop Vit E) and im wondering whether the acid toner makes the skin more open to soaking up the hydration........ I don't know what the hell i'm talking about but it makes sense in my head! I've had no breakouts, no irritation, no stinging and all in all I really do like it a lot.
WOULD YOU REPURCHASE?
Yes I will be repurchasing when it runs out. Its a great little acid toner at a reasonable enough price.
