We were flying back home later that day and as I didn’t have too much money left, I knew I couldn’t go mad. I was very selective with what I bought and ended up getting the Cleanse and Tone Treat that I’ll speak about below, a Day Cream and the Vintage Denim Nail Polish I briefly mentioned in my WIWT Round Up post last week.
After spending my University years spending a lot of money on toiletries and skincare and finding that my skin rejected most products after a few months, I’ve really scaled back on what I buy. Now I tend to use a good face wash, facial wipes (to stop panda eyes), Simple/Nivea moisturiser and a bb cream for when I want more of a healthy glow without the same coverage of foundation.
I hadn’t used a cleanser for a good number of months before I bought this product and whilst I don’t regret not faffing around with different products, I can certainly tell and feel the difference.
The Cleanse and Tone Treat feels silky (and refreshingly cold) when applied and has a fragrance that is full of lovely floral accents. The scent instantly makes you feel clean and refreshed.
It takes a minute or so for my skin to absorb the lotion residue and then I can feel the toning effects just before my skin begins to soften.
The double duty cleanser and toner is quite creamy and leaves my skin feeling as though it has been moisturised a little so I would recommend that it’s best used with a light moisturiser to prevent too much moisture.
If you’re still recovering from the chilly weather we’ve been having, it might be worth complementing the treatment with a overnight intense moisturiser once in a while.
Overall, I’m pretty impressed with the cleanser and toner treatment and for £5 I don’t think it’s a bad investment. (Plus the bottle and & Other Stories design implies it cost a lot more than a fiver!).
