In the past few years I tried quite a few different beauty products from Neal’s Yard Remedies, but interestingly I never bought myself a toner from their collection, well not for a while anyway. Last year I bought my sister their Frankincense Hydrating Cream and I also decided to buy her Rejuvenating Frankincense Toner with that. Her skin is really sensitive, with dry patches and she also has a few fine lines so I thought that adding a rejuvenating toner to her skincare routine will help her deal with these particular skin concerns.
When I visited my sister in Slovenia for Christmas I didn’t take my usual toner with me, instead I decided to trial out Rejuvenating Frankincense Toner from Neal’s Yard Remedies for a week (my sister didn’t mind of course).
The toners from Neal’s Yard Remedies come in big, 200ml bottles, a really generous size which you don’t commonly find amongst natural beauty brands. The value for money is excellent too. If we look at Rejuvenating Frankincense Toner, it costs £20 per bottle which makes it £10 per 100ml. I bought 100ml natural toners in the past costing £15 or even more so £10 per 100ml sounds like a great deal. And you don’t get some cheap quality product for this price. Neal’s Yard’s products are of really high quality, certified organic and cruelty-free.
Rejuvenating Frankincense Toner is made with 97% organic ingredients and does not contain alcohol. It’s perfect for sensitive skin, which my sister has. She has never complained about the toner giving her a rash or irritation, which happened with some products she used in the past.
The great thing about this toner is that it’s suitable for all skin types. I used it on my combination skin and I didn’t get breakouts. The toner worked well to remove the last traces of makeup and left my skin feeling refreshed and soothed. I didn’t find it particularly hydrating but I guess that’s not what it’s supposed to do (I love toners which are slightly hydrating like the one from Botanicals and I wish all of them would be like that!).
But how exactly does this toner ‘rejuvenate’ the skin? Well, the all important ingredient is frankincense oil which is well known for its skin rejuvenating properties. Frankincense oil helps to protect skin cells and can be even used to help reduce acne blemishes. This toner actually sounds great for combination skin as it also contains calming aloe vera (helpful if you have to treat some blemishes).
The toner also contains a smoothing collagen-stimulating tri-peptide which will help you look after any fine lines you have and prevent any new ones from appearing.
I quite liked this toner and would consider buying it for myself in the future. Have you tried this toner from Neal’s Yard Remedies or any other toner from their collection?
