NUXE Aux 3 Roses Floral Toning Lotion
Alcohol-free, this toner containing natural ingredients such as witch hazel, rose and camomile, is said to help reduce fatigueness. Suitable for all skin types, this is meant to soothe, refresh and remove any last traces of makeup after cleansing.
I had purchased this back in March, and the floral scent is somewhat subjective as I tend to find it overwhelming at times. It is generously sized, at a reasonable price. Aux 3 Roses is supposed to vitalise and leave and leave the skin perfectly spotless, but um... it's just a toner.
It preps the face just fine before applying serum and moisture but what irritates me is the high content of glycol and glycerin among the ingredients. The toner takes a while to absorb, and given the stickiness from those two top ingredients, it can be annoying. I tend to get caught up with my typing and would lose track so by the time the product sets in, it would cause my combination skin to be extra greasy together with the excess sebum.
Clearly this is more suitable for those with dry skin but due to the sticky nature, it works as an excellent adhesive. I have always used toners in place of water, to mix in with powder-form masks. While water tends to make the solution runny, toners generally contain glycerin, hence they are able to stay on your face without dripping excess liquid all over your clothes.
Given the 200ml amount, this toner can last a pretty long time. Thankfully, I did not experience any breakouts nor redness, but I will not re-purchase again.
So I wasn't feeling well yesterday, look what Milo did to cheer me up...
