I like using a toner and it is a skincare step I rarely miss. I find using a toner helps hydrate my skin and just ensures you’ve removed every trace of dirt after cleansing. The Vitamin E range from The Body Shop is one of my favourites & one that I have used for years on and off. It’s a range that refreshes the skin and keeps it hydrated. The Toner lasts for ages and I use it morning and night, it never leaves my skin feeling tight or stripped but makes it feel smooth, clean and soft.
I use this on 3rd-day hair so I can stretch out for another day & this absorbs the oil and leaves my hair looking clean and feeling lightweight and fresh. It can leave a white cast but I do blow dry my hair after I use it so that tends to get rid of the powder residue. I need hardly any of this & a bottle lasts me at least 5 weeks. I’m not sure this adds shine to my hair but it stops it looking greasy & that’s good enough for me. I love my hair to look a little lived in (my mum would say scruffy) and dry shampoo creates that textured messy look & it also helps add volume too. Let me know what your favourite dry shampoo is.
Oh, this is a godsend for those early mornings, I love applying this to my tired eyes. It feels refreshing, cooling and hydrating and helps you look more awake by de-puffing and soothing your under eye bags. It has a handy metal roller ball applicator that helps the gel glide on & if you keep this in the fridge the metal is cold against your skin. It helps cool and massages your under eyes, getting the blood flowing to get rid of those pesky bags. I apply this before my eye cream & let is work its magic for a couple of minutes and it leaves the area smooth and looking fresh. I’m not the only fan of this as it recently won Best Eye De-Puffer at the Instyle Best Beauty Buys 2015.
