Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner

Sooth and Hydrate Your Skin!

One way I like to refresh and hydrate my skin is by using Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Enriched Calming Toner ($15.95 for 6.4 oz./190 ml.).  It is a milky liquid that, according to Paula herself, is supposed to “calm your skin, providing a radiant appearance as it works to prevent signs of aging.  [It] helps fortify skin against environmental damage with skin repairing ingredients, soothing plant extracts, and a careful blend of potent antioxidants.  It works especially well for extra sensitive skin and rosacea.”

Presently, I have combination skin (dry cheeks and neck/oily T-zone) that becomes slightly drier during fall/winter and slightly oilier during spring/summer.  I experience minor breakouts and have mild to moderate rosacea.

This is the second product I use in my skin care routine, right after cleansing my face with Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Softening Cream Cleanser.  I use this to remove any last traces of makeup I may have missed and the milky texture, which is different from most clear toners, lightly moisturizes my skin-never making it look or feel oily or greasy.  It helps to slightly calm my rosacea and it feels very refreshing on a warm day.  On days when my skin does not feel as dry, this product adds just the right amount of moisture  to skip using a separate moisturizer, and go straight to my antioxidant serum.

This is just one of several well formulated toners from Paula’s Choice.  She has one for every skin type, targeted to fit your needs.

It is important to note all of Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, contain no added dyes, and are not tested on animals.  On the website, you can also view the sources of published research which support the company’s claims of their products.  You can also find a plethora of information and reviews on thousands of cosmetics and skin care products.

If you have always liked the idea of a toner, but always felt as if they were drying on your skin, then this one is definitely worth a try.
