L’Occitane Shea Butter gentle Toner

L’Occitance is a brand that I don’t tend to turn to for facial skincare – their biggest draw for me is their Shea Butter Hand Cream.  I decided to give their Shea Butter gentle Toner ($25 for 200ml) a try since it’s meant to be both gentle and moisturizing, plus it’s alcohol free.  I got this for “free” last year when I redeemed my optimum points at shoppers drug Mart.

It comes in a substantial plastic bottle with a spray pump which is a nice addition for a toner – I tried spraying directly onto my face but it is NOT a fine mist (like taking a hose to the face!), so I just spray onto a cotton pad.  I do like having a spray nozzle, as it is more controlled to use compared to a pour bottle – 5 sprays is enough to soak a cotton pad.

The toner has a faint shea scent which isn’t overwhelming and a smell that I do enjoy, but it may not be to everyone’s preference.  It removes any remaining residue after my 2 step cleansing (oil cleansing, then micellar water) and it provides a hydrated skin surface to receive serums and moisturizers.

The second ingredient after water is cornflower water, which is purported to be soothing and a decongestant. I was worried about the inclusion of bitter orange extract as sometimes orange extracts irritate my skin but I’ve not reacted to this.

The only nit-picky thing I would say is that the spray tube doesn’t reach ALL the way down to the bottom of the bottle, so when I’m down to the last cm at the bottom, I won’t be able to get all the product out.  (Aside, Greenworks household cleaners have already solved this problem! They created a “Smart Tube Technology” where the spray tube is moulded into the bottle and runs the whole length of the bottle so you can get every last drop – ingenious!)

• spray nozzle for easy dispensing
• gentle and soothing formula
• hydrating ingredients including glycerin, shea butter extract
• bez alkoholu
• vyrobeno ve Francii

• fragranced
• short spray tube
• bitter orange extract may be irritating for some skin
• more expensive than other comparable products

Stash worthiness: 7/10

Interesting to note: the label on the front has raised bumps for braille.

Overall, I like this toner and would consider purchasing it.  In fact, I’m curious to try other L’Occitane skincare, starting with the Shea Cleansing Oil.  Has anyone else used L’Occitane facial skincare?

Večerní čistící rutinei se čistí docela vážně. In the morning, it’s not as much of a focus for me, since my skin is mainly covered with skincare that I applied the night before, and any sebum from my skin from sleeping. Nicméně, v noci, moje kůže prošla celý den …
