My take on Lotus Herbals Basiltone Cucumber & Basil Clarifying & Balancing Toner
The toner comes in a plastic transparent bottle with a spray dispenser and a tight fitted plastic cap. You can easily see through how much quantity is left. Due to the spray dispenser it becomes really convenient to take the required quantity out. The plastic cap is also quite tight and sturdy, even if it gets removed while travelling still you need not bother about leakage as the spray dispenser would not get pressed on its ownJ. So overall the packaging is travel friendly.
Even though the fragrance of this toner does not linger long but I found the fragrance a little weird which is somehow irritating. But as I have already said it does not linger long so it fades away in few minutes. The toner comes in a light green color which reminds me of cucumber.
After using this toner my skin feels clean, soft, fresh and hydrated. It does help in removing makeup traces, dirt and excess oil without drying my skin. Moreover it is quite mild on skin and does not give any kind of tingling or burning sensation to my skin. I did not face any major breakout since I have started using this toner. Although it would not provide you any major or drastic change overnight. But with regular usage you would surely feel the difference on your skin, I felt it does helped in reducing blackhead formation with regular use. So overall I liked this toner a lot and I am quite satisfied with its results. It will be very much suitable for combination to oily skin as claimed by the product itself.
