It seems to me that not very many people use toners however I follow the three-step skin care rule (cleanse, tone, moisturise) and there always need to be one on my bathroom shelf. When I was completing the Seaweed skin care, I obviously bought the Seaweed Clarifying Toner.

This toner was created for combination or oily skin. It comes in a clear plastic bottle which is fairly robust and has a white lid at the top. It also has a turquoise sticker with all the necessary information both in English and in French.

The toner itself is see-through (looks like water), has a lovely, mild scent (nothing could be further from seaweed!) - just like the rest of the range and has a very runny texture (just like water). To be honest, I didn't expect anything different than that.

It is very easy to use: having cleansed my skin, I spill a little bit of the toner on a cotton pad and press against my skin. It immediately feels fresh without the annoying feeling of dryness (as it did with the cleanser).

The producer promises that it minimises pores, removes impurities and reduces excess oil. I didn't really see any minimised pores (but thankfully my pores aren't very big any way), the impurities have definitely been removed (I once even tried using it as a make-up remover however it didn't work so well - it still removed it but it seemed so much more difficult than with a normal make-up remover) and the oil has been reduced even though my T-zone (especially nose) was still shiny. I am aware that a toner is also meant to prepare the skin for the moisturiser - indeed, I felt that the skin absorbed the moisturiser better (and didn't feel as dry) if I had applied the toner earlier.

It contains Community Trade seaweed and is oil-free. Unfortunately I feel it didn't work that well for me and I will not be buying it again. One bottle is 200ml, costs £7 and goes quite a long way (I just finished one and have been using it for the past three-four months twice a day).

Thank you for reading my review.
