I hate throwing out a product that I haven't given much of a chance, especially when it's over something that seems as trivial as the scent.
I received this toner as part of a prize pack that I had won, probably not something that I would have purchased myself. However, wanting to at least try it, I simply applied this product like most toners, after cleansing, with a cotton pad.
What went wrong for me was the scent. Fragrance was added, but it just wasn't enough to mask the strong alcohol smell. Maybe I have become accustomed to natural scented products, but I actually felt ill
Having this affect was not the only reason for saying goodbye to this toner. After the strong smell of alcohol, I checked the ingredients. Having alcohol listed as the 2nd ingredient just doesn't sit well with me. Maybe if I was younger, when my skin was more oily, but now I'm finding that alcohol based products just strip my skin. Not a good thing for more mature skin.
I hate throwing out products that aren't finished, let alone full, but if it doesn't go now, it'll just sit in my bathroom cupboard collecting dust. I might as well make room for something else ;)
