Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner

Hi Ladies,

I hope that you're all ok and I'm sorry for being M.I.A recently. I've had so much going on and celebrated my Birthday on Monday so honestly haven't had a minute to sit down and breathe!

Rachel booked for us to both go to the Spa at Center Parcs for the day, which was lovely, and I noticed a product there that I have been wanting to try for such a long time.

My tends to be fine most of the time. I have combination skin with the occasional breakout but I'm lucky enough to say that it's pretty rare. I've heard mixed reviews about this product to be honest but something made me wonder about this so when I saw that it retailed for £19.50, I decided I may as well try it now.

Elemis Balancing Lavender Toner is marketed as an "Alcohol-free toner for clarifying complexion. Removes last traces of cleanser & impurities. High Alpine Lavender maintains skin natural pH balance. Leaves skin fresh & comfortable. Perfect to use on teenage or combination skins."

I love Elemis products and swear by the Instant Refreshing Gel (great for migraines, tired legs and sore muscles) but had heard that this is very much a Marmite product, you either absolutely love it or HATE it!

Impressions so far? I like the packaging. To apply, I spray on to cotton pads and apply directly to the skin after my cleanser (Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel) and before moisturiser (Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Lotion.) The smell is lovely, quite a strong lavender smell so if you don't like the fragrance, this probably isn't for you.

I'm only two days in but have noticed a spot on my head. This may not be related so I'll keep you posted. Fingers crossed, this won't break me out as I really want to love it!

Do you have any Elemis recommendations?

Thank you, as always, for reading.

Lots of love,
