In order to compensate for the changes in weather our skin care products should change as well. In every season we should use different skin care products that cater to our skin’s needs. Likewise, skin care products used in winters should be different than summer products.
As summers are approaching so I have already started hoarding my new skin care products. To start with I have bought this cucumber toner: ‘Biotique Bio Cucumber Pore Tightening Freshener’. As the name says, this is a pore tightening toner. I know it’s hard to get away from genetic pore size but still there is no harm in keep trying . As long as a toner does not have any side effects, and it keeps serving the basic purpose of cleaning the skin it’s worth continuing.
What the product says:
This refreshing, pore-tightening and purifying lotion brings the complexion into perfect pH balance. It also helps in keeping skin at its purest state.
My Take on ‘Biotique Bio Cucumber Pore Tightening Freshener’
‘Biotique Bio Cucumber Pore Tightening Freshener’ comes in a medium sized cylindrical bottle. The toner looks pale green in color but once you put it on a cotton pad it looks almost transparent. Like all other toners, this toner also has runny consistency. So you have to be little careful while taking out the toner as the bottle has a wide hole that sometimes leads to wastage.
It has strong smell that might be a concern for some people. But the good thing is that when applied on the skin the smell fades away in a few minutes. So if you hold your nostrils for a couple of seconds you can make this toner work.
For application, I take it on a cotton pad and apply on face and neck in upward direction. It extracts all external impurities and revives the skin. Usually, this toner does not produce any stinging sensation unless applied close to the waterline. In that case it can make the eyes water a little.
Biotique Bio Cucumber toner is for normal to oily skin tone. I apply it twice a day: morning and evening; so far it has not caused any skin breakouts. And, to reap maximum benefits from this toner I always store it in a refrigerator.
Regarding pore tightening, I have not noticed any prominent difference in pore size. I am not even expecting any variance as once the pore size is enlarged it becomes difficult to reduce it. As long as this toner is cleaning my skin and reviving it from the effects of harsh summers it’s good for me.
For best results:
Store it in a refrigerator. Apply to cotton pads or washcloth and gently wipe over cleansed face and neck, morning and evening.
