Although I have my favourite skincare brands and products (ask me about how obsessed I am with Aesop products) I do love to switch things up, both to satisfy my primal shopping urges and also to ensure that my skin doesn’t get too used to any particular product.
That’s why I decided to try the 4-in-1 Essential Face Tonic from Ursa Major Supernatural Skincare . You basically put this stuff on a cotton ball and swipe your pretty face with it, like a toner, which I love – it’s a simple step that feels refreshing and helps, you know, tone your skin so it looks fresh, even and healthy. Apparently this do-it-all tonic with bamboo, aloe and lemon exfoliates, cleanses, heals and hydrates and I love its somewhat sharp (but not strong) scent of citrus and fir. Other ingredients include witch hazel, apple, green tea and birch sap, and there are no sulfates, parabens or synthetic materials to be found.
This stuff is super popular and highly reviewed, but I’ll add my two cents to the mix: I’m a fan. As a toner and cleanser, this stuff isn’t harsh but definitely isn’t that super-mellow, is-this-even-working effect you get from some very gentle natural products. I think this would be a great addition to any skincare routine, but definitely if you have oily or combination skin.
