As far as toners are concerned, I have never really liked them; I know they play an important role in the skincare routine. But, somehow I didn’t want to use them.
For me toner always was any rose water and after laid my hands on the Kama Ayurveda Pure Rosewater, I got more reasons not to use a specific toner. So, after it got over I finally thought of giving toners a try.
I was looking for toners without alcohol, as alcohol in a product helps the products to be absorbed by the skin by breaking a few barriers, but also harms our skin, in the process. I also didn’t want to dish out a huge amount for a toner, I know I might not use.

So I picked up the Himalaya herbals Refreshing and Clarifying Toner, when I hauled from the Himalaya Herbals store, here in Bangalore. I had been using this, before I switched to my reliable rose water, like I had explained in my Current Skincare Routine.
So let’s get to the review of this toner –
Packaging: - I honestly like this sort of packaging; A plastic bottle, with tight flip cap. I do not like the ones with the screw caps! UUUGGHHHH!!!!!!
Product: - The toner is a light blue liquid, which smells really mild and floral. Fragrance is a very important aspect for me and this toner passed in that area. I honestly don’t know what toners WITH alcohol smell like, but I can say that this is really mild.
The BASIC utility of a toner is to normalize your skin’s ph level after cleansing/washing, which has a lot of effect on the size of pores. This particular toner claims that it minimizes oil secretion, and it does control that, but till an extent.
The toner suits all skin types, so it is perfect for my combination skin. My skin does not feel dry or overly oily after a few hours of using this. On applying this , my skin never feels like it’s burning, not even my pimples burn :P!
After using this for over a month I just noticed one thing in particular, it makes my skin slightly dull. But, also keeps my skin clear and really supple. So, I would recommend this and also not recommend this! I knowww, confusing right!? Well, let me point out the likes and dislikes.
- Smells really mild
- Clears the excess dirt and oil
- Mild on skin
- No burning sensation
- Decent oil control
- Keeps skin clear
- Alcohol free
- Budget friendly
- Flip Cap packaging
- Makes skin slightly dull
- No noticeable difference in pore size
Price: - 80 INR for 100 ml
Must Have Meter –
I would give this a 6 on the must have meter. Because, this has a lot of good points, but the fact that it makes my skin slightly dull makes it loose 4 points. I would say that this is the most pocket friendly alcohol free toner available in India.
Have you tried this?? What is your favorite toner ??
