My Experience With Himalaya Herbals Refreshing & Clarifying Toner:
Himalaya Herbals Refreshing & Clarifying Toner comes in a pale blue plastic bottle which is almost opaque but still you can figure out the amount left inside and along with a green flip open cap. It has a medium sized hole to pour out the product on a cotton wipe. The bottle is sturdy yet lightweight and can easily be tossed into a handbag while travelling. I prefer spraying my toner and hence often transfer it to a spray bottle. Overall, the packaging is good and effective.
The product looks just like water with a refreshing fragrance. You won't even notice any sort of foaming if you vigorously shake the bottle. The smell is artificial and resembles a lot like Himalaya Herbals Refreshing & Clarifying Toner I have used before. The smell leaves behind a fresh trail before disappearing into the skin. There is absolutely no sticky or greasy feel after using the product.
The toner claims to be suitable for all skin types and performs well for oily skin. It is an alcohol-free formulation which doesn't dry out the skin yet helps in accomplishing the subtle cleansing and refreshing properties. I generally clean the face with a cleansing milk, followed by the face wash and spray the toner. I let it settle on the skin which makes the pores tiny bit small and gives a glow to the skin (somewhat like a natural highlighter). My pores are negligible and I could see a slight difference in them. However, people with large open pores won't be benefitted well with this one.
It takes off all the residual layer of impurities on the skin and makes it clean and soft. It doesn't make the skin oily at all but I highly doubt how it would be performing on dry skin. The toner doesn't sting or irritate the skin at all, gives a soothing sensation and I experienced no breakouts at all. The ingredients list is quite nice for the product. It has citrus limon which removes the impurities from the skin giving a subtle glow, boerhavia root that controls excess oil secretion to leave your skin soft and lastly lentil that deep cleanses pores.
It is no doubt a great product but it is not something extraordinary. It is reasonably priced and somewhat a perfect skin care for young skin. It might not be well effective for mature skin. I have so far loved toner and have almost finished the bottle. I planning to buy Himalaya Herbals Refreshing Cleanser and Toner combo as they work great on my skin.
