Review : Kiehl's Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner

Friday, August 7, 2009


I don't usually splurge on my skincare (
drugstore suit my skin the best), but..suddenly fall in love with Kiehl's and decided to try their product.I bought this toner approx a month ago. The SA recommend to me ; Celendula Herbal-Extract Toner and Yerba Maté Tea Toner(both are non-alcohol toners) due to my hormone changing (acne prone skin)sometimes, i'm bit sensitive to certain product and I'm oily/combination type of skin so, i reckon non alcohol is the best for me!... After contemplating and few testing for both toners, i finally choose the Celendula one...huhuuh...

Well, this toner is definitely pleasantly smell like ice tea, as you can see the floating Celendula petal in the bottle. It's like water and really sooth my skin without cooling or tingling sensation(don't expect that for non-alcohol product)...This toner is gentle to skin, good for reduce redness of scar and it also left my skin fresh clean, and well-balanced.I'm happy to report there's no feeling of tightness or non drying like many other toners, thanks to its natural and alcohol free ingredients.Overall, i might say that i love this ..but it's way too pricey for a toner!right? ;)

Rating: 4.5/5

that's one helluva pricey toner! I never really splurge on toner, as well as my other skin care as drugstore products work just fine haha. Maybe some serum to moisten up my dull dry skin. But RM95 for a toner? My purse is so gonna riot. lol
