Product Review: Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize

I was very much looking forward to todays beauty review. I did however,  have to commit a mortal sin: using 2 products from different lines. The sales rep very kindly gave us a few samples, and hey, one must improvise.
So, after a facial cleanse (non-Kiehl's), on went the toner: Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner (250ml rrp €21) to be precise. Refreshing, (green in color), and a light delicate smell, my skin felt matte dry and looked really clean. There was very little residue on the cotton wool pad (thumbs up to the cleanser I think), what little there was - wiped clean away! And the alcohol-free version: great for my skin, great for any skin type I would think. No stinging or tingling after use either.

This was followed by the Açaí Damage-Correcting Moisturizer (75ml rrp €58). Surprisingly non-greasy for its cream-like texture. A pea-sized portion dotted around the face was all that was needed, and with a light massage for application, it absorbed really well. Great coverage and the perfect base for make-up. Slightly fragranced but by no means over-powering, your 'skin is visibly renewed to reveal a smoother and more even complexion'. We're only on day one - so let's check back in a weeks time, eh. And this range is 100% natural in origin too!

Tomorrow we tackle that delicate subject of serums, this one from the same Açaí range and a must-have Line-Reducing Eye-Brightening Concentrate (prevention better than cure, right?)
