When I start reading skincare reviews, I usually end up with wishlists x___x Lately I have been reading about double toning and am quite intrigued. Now that I’m approaching mid-thirties, I figure I need to pay more attention to skin hydration. But I still have problems with blackheads and general clogged-pores issue so exfoliating is also a big deal. Double toning may be the way to go. Essentially, it’s pairing two toners with different qualities. One is exfoliating toner and the other is hydrating. Makes perfect sense when you think about it. Like everybody else, I have been reading Caroline Hirons’ suggestions. Hence this wishlist *sigh*
Speaking of exfoliating toner, my best experience with this kind of toner is SK-II Clear Lotion. It really helps with blackheads. Too bad I consider it too expensive to repurchase. Although, the exfo toner in my wishlist is not cheap, either. Yep, you probably guessed it. Pixi Glow Tonic. Oh, I wish it was the locally available Pixy, but no. It is frustratingly only available in UK (USA, too, recently but still pretty hard to find). People are raving about this baby so I probably put more effort to get this. Living in Indonesia, everything is expensive when it gets here. If I can’t justify the price, I might repurchase SK-II after all. Sekalian mahal aja, gitu.
I used to think you only need one toner, so I usually choose exfo toner. I figure why use hydrating toner when moisturizer is coming up next? Turns out hydrating and moisturizing is not necessarily the same. One other thing I learn from dear Lady Hirons 😁. One toner that caught my eyes is Thayers. I really don’t have many ideas regarding this hydrating toners. I might consider Secret Key Witch Hazel toner, I don’t know.
So, that was my toner wishlist, which is my primary wishlist. The following is my random wishlist 😁 I might get these, I might change my mind. Double toning really set my mind on the idea of hydrating my skin. The toners I will get, one way or the other. I might settle on cheaper alternatives like Hada Labo lotion. These, on the other hand, may always be a wishlist and nothing more.
Hydraluron moisture booster is not a long shot, actually, but I think I still have a long way to go before spending $45 for a cleanser 😁
Feel free to suggest more toners for me. I’d really appreciate it ☺️
