Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner

August 01, 2014


Že dolgo sem zvesta le eni vrsti tonika, rožni vodi. Le-ta zmanjšuje rdečico in vnetja, poživlja in osvežuje, uravnana pH ravnovesje kože, prečudovito diši ter je primerna za vse tipe kože. Preprosto obožujem jo in nasploh sem vedno zelo zadovoljna z izdelki, ki vsebujejo vrtnične cvetove. Toniki sicer niso ravno najbolj priljubljeni izdelki za nego obraza, tudi sama dajem več poudarka na ostale izdelke, a ne glede na to, si ne predstavljam, da bi bila brez. Pravzaprav je tonik oziroma hidrolat prvi izdelek, ki ga nanesem na očiščen obraz in zadnji, ko se naličim. Bolj ko razmišljam, res ne morem brez in trenutno z največjim veseljem uporabljam rahlo izboljšano verzijo vrtnične vode, Thayersov tonik.
Thayers Alcohol-Free Toner Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera
 Vsebuje čudovito, ekološko pridelano aloe vero, ki je morda najbolj znana po svojih hladilnih in pomirjujočih učinkovinah. Super za zdravljenje opeklin, razdražene kože, pomaga pri hiperpigmentaciji in nasploh gre za krasno sestavino, ki z rednim uživanjem dela čudeže. Med drugim tonik vsebuje rastlinski glicerin, ki kožo vlaži in ekološki nepozebnik, ki deluje adstringentno, kar pomeni, da oža pore, veča napetost kože in zmanjšuje njeno mastnost. Kar pa je najbolj pomembno je, da ne vsebuje alkohola! In četudi imate mastno kožo, izbirajte izdelke brez alkohola, ker pri redni uporabi ne naredi nič dobrega.

Če tonik primerjam z navadno, čisto vrtnično vodo, moram povedati, da na koži nisem opazila večjih sprememb. Še vseeno pa jo raje uporabljam prav zaradi dodanih sestavin. :) Kot vidite ima Thayers "old school" dizajn, ki je meni kar všeč, embalaža je preprosta in funkcionalna. Ima zelo majhno luknjico za doziranje in tako ni nobene skrbi, da bi poleg vatke polili še sebe. Meni sicer takšna embalaža tonikov ni všeč, jaz potrebujem razpršilo. Ne maram uporabljati vate, včasih mi ven udari ekološka ozaveščenost in zato jo uporabljam le za odstranjevanje laka za nohte pa še to pazim, da porabim le eno blazinico. Na srečo sem imela še mojo prejšnjo vrtnično vodo od Argane, ki je mimogrede odlična, in tako vsake toliko časa malo prelivam. Rožno vodo uporabljam vsak dan po jutranjem in večernem čiščenju obraza, po ličenju obraza za daljšo obstojnost in lepši videz mineralne podlage. Zelo, zelo prav pa pride tudi ob vročih dneh, ko nujno potrebujem malo osvežitve.
Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Alcohol Free Toner, Argana Rose Water
Glede na ogromno količino izdelka, tonik svetujem tistim, ki imate radi vonj vrtnice, 355 ml je ogromno! Na voljo tukaj, stane okoli 6€.

I've been a fan of rose water for a long time. I don't remember when I first started using it but I remember it was one from Melvita. They changed their formulation and added alcohol, a big no-no for me! And then the whole L'occitane and China market and animal testing happened and I was done with Melvita. Wow, okay, that's not the point of this post! Back to rose water. :) It reduces redness and inflammation, balances pH levels of the skin, it's so refreshing and invigorating, smells wonderful and it's suitable for all skin types. I simply adore it and always love products with rose petals. When it comes to skincare, toners aren't really my favourite products, I usually give more thought money to other bits but saying that I can't imagine being without a toner. It's actually the first thing I use on my freshly cleansed skin and the last when I'm done with my makeup. The more I think about it, the more I love it! 

At the moment I've been loving a bit of an improved version of rose water, the Thayers toner with the beautiful organic juice of aloe vera which is perhaps most known for its cooling and calming properties. It's great for damaged and burned skin, helps to reduce hyperpigmentation, all in all it's a fantastic plant. There is also vegetable glycerin, great for moisturizing and organic witch hazel, a natural astringent that minimizes pores, increases skin firmness and helps with oil balancing. And what is the most important thing for me is, the toner doesn't contain alcohol! Even though some of you might have oily skin it's best to choose products without alcohol because with regular use it doesn't do any good for the skin.

Ingredients aside I don't see any major difference on my skin when using simple, pure rose water. Nevertheless, I still love it just because of the added ingredients. :) As you can see, Thayers has that old school design which I quite like, the packaging is simple and effective. On the top it has a very small opening but I'm all about spray bottles. I don't like using cotton pads, every now and then my ecological awareness strikes out and because of that I only use them for removing nail polish and even then I usually use just one cotton pad. So fortunately for me I still had some Argana Rose water and when I finished it I just pour in some Thayers toner. Works perfectly. I always spray some on my face after my morning and evening face wash and after applying my makeup. But you know when I love it the most? When I'm hot and sweaty (TMI don't care), it's so refreshing and nice. :)

 Considering the big bottle, I recommend it to those of you who love roses. 355 ml is a lot when you don't like the scent. I bought it here.

  1. I use this toner for about 2 month now and i love it. First, like you, rose scent is a big "coup de coeur".. I like the simplicity of the composition. It,s been a years now that i use reusable cottons "bamboo" (I love it) and i will not go back with regular cotton pads.. First, i was sceptical but now i can't do without :)

  2. Great review! I love roses too but I might be the only one that loves toner more than anything else haha, I just can't get enough of them. I'm using Thayers, but also Khadi's pure rose water - there's nothing else - and it's divine, it smells lovely and it's so refreshing. I got it on Eccoverde/Khadi's website. There's also Acure's facial toner rose and red tea (iherb) that I really like too, also alcohol-free. xx

  3. I go through toners and chemical exfoliants all the time, but I always go back to this. I have sensitive skin and this is makes a difference while being gentle. Also, I really love the scent of rosewater!!

  4. I love Thayers Rose too, especially great during winter when my skin was so dehydrated. Right now I have a couple other toners to use so Thayers has taken a back seat.
