Fabindia Lavender Skin Toner Review

Fabindia Lavender Skin Toner Review

by Shruti

Hi Guys! How are you all? I know it’s been a long time :) Winter hasn’t set yet in Chennai but the weather is pleasant. Let me get straight to the review. A couple of weeks ago I started getting pimples all over my chin and my left cheek. I got so worried and that increased the breakout. I then realized that 3 years ago, when I had an allergic reaction to fluoride (yup, fluoride makes me break out around my lips) my dermatologist in Dubai had prescribed a medicated cream.
     Now this cream dries out the pimples and slowly makes your skin peel. So I ended up having dry patches on my skin which looked awful. Imagine sitting in the office, in AC, and in an hour or so, you see skin flaking. Yuck! I applied lotions and what not, but my skin started burning. I realized that I could use a face spray or a toner to calm my skin and keep it hydrated.

To cut my long story short, I picked up this baby online and it’s helped me in my quest for fresher skin :) I am talking about Fabindia Lavender Skin Toner.

What does the  Fabindia Lavender Skin Toner Claims:
An alcohol-free hydrating toner that cleanses refreshes and soothes your skin.

Usage Instructions:

My Experience with Fabindia Lavender Skin Toner:

Packaging: It comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a white plastic flip top. The top has a small nozzle. Personally, I would have preferred a spray bottle. But this nozzle is small so I guess it would do!

Colour, Consistency & Fragrance: The toner is transparent and runny like water. It smells of lavender and is mild and relaxing.

How it works: It’s like a balm for my irritated and raw skin :D I have this tiny spray bottle into which I have transferred some of the toner. As I mentioned earlier, my skin starts peeling really fast and it burns. I simply close my eyes and spray this onto my face. Let it dry on its own. My skin automatically calms down and I feel much better. Also it hydrates the dry patches of my skin. I use it many times  during the day. It didn’t break me out too. Touchwood!!
