It feels so nice to receive gifts, especially during the festive season. During CNY, I was sent this product from Natta Cosme, along with a New Year card and some angpao packets. The design on the red packets (or rather, pink packets) were so cute that my mum, gramma and aunt wanted them as well! I truly appreciate that the team sent a handwritten and autographed CNY card as this tradition seems to be dying out nowadays.
Anyway, if there ever was a fairy godmother, Natta Cosme would be mine. I have just finished up my regular toner and they sent this my way, just in time to save my skin for the CNY celebrations! What with the crazy hot weather and irregular diet & sleeping time, my skin suffered breakouts and flakiness, as I have mentioned so many times.
Thayers Natural Remedies Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner is infused with certified organic witch hael and aloe vera formula to give you smooth and beautiful skin without drying it out. This is only one of the many ranges of Thayers toners that are all naturally derived and smells great too! Interestingly, this brand does not produce any other type of skincare and is famous solely for their toners which are considered one of the first in the world since 1847! Thayers proprietary un-distilled Witch Hazel extract is derived from the bark which maintains its natural tannins, has more hamamelitannin than the leaves & stems.
To minimise the dryness of my skin, I reduced the use of toner as it tends to dry out my skin but Thayers Natural Remedies Toners promises to be alcohol-free and moisturising, so I decided to give it a try. Skincare that are natural and plant-based is what I'm currently seeking.
Thayers Rose Petal Toner uses flower power to make your skin bloom. With rose petal water, Vitamin E and Witch Hazel extract, it not only tightens the pores, soothes and softens the skin but moisturises and cleanses any impurities as well. You can even use it throughout the day as a softening refreshener or a pick-me-up while working in an air-conditioned office. The toner is alcohol-free, paraben-free, phtalate-free, fragrance-free and is hypoallergenic.
Instead of using a regular sticker at the back, what I find interesting is that Thayers has creatively made use of the refraction of the liquid to magnify the words from the sticker. Haha. There's an interesting story about the history of the toner as well. It seems that 120 years ago, Rose Thayer found an all-natural recipe for extra-soft, youthful-looking skin. As she got older, many commented that her skin still looks 10 years younger, which is why this secret formula waas shared with the world.
A sucker for anything that is rose-scented, I can't deny that I love love love the scent! So sweet and flowery! It is very watery but don't underestimate how much goodness it contains.
To use, peel off the protective seal initially inside the cover and soak a small amount of liquid onto a cotton ball or cotton pad. Wipe upwards and outwards to let the product be easily absorbed into your skin.
After using the toner for a week or so, the most noticeable difference I see is that my pores have shrunk! Finer pores lead to smoother looking skin and I'm on my way to that now. I love how gentle the toner feels on my skin and leaves a slight cooling effect. It is not sticky after application and the watery formula is absorbed easily by the skin. I apply it twice a day before I go to bed at night and before I apply my makeup in the morning to help moisturise my skin. The only downside for me is that it is only available in one size and is not really travel-friendly to carry such a big bottle around.
You can find the Thayers Alcohol-Free Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner with Aloe Vera Formula at Natta Cosme for RM 45.00 (355ml). Don't forget to check out the other ranges of Thayers Toners too which serves different function as well. There's bound to be one suited for your skin type!
