Toners for oily or problematic skin

Saturday, June 07, 2014

Hello readers, it's already hot outside and our skin needs some refreshing.
Up until 3 or 4 years ago I didn't think a toner was needed for my skin. Then I learned how lovely it feels on my skin. If you don't already have a toner in your skin routine I think you should invest into one, either a cheap or a bit more expensive one.
I do have extremely oily skin on my T-zone during summer, so this is just an essential for me.
I don't think a toner is the one thing that will solve your skin problems - BUT ! -> in combination with your face wash + day/night cream it works. If I don't wash my face properly, my skin starts breaking out a bit and it doesn't feel great anymore. So, when I do my skin routine like I should I feel like it helps with keeping my skin clear. I feel like sometimes some of the toners helped with my big pores, but not for a long period of time - I think unfortunately nothing can clear that :/
I know I will present quite a lot of toners to you, but for me each one of them worked in their own way + I believe toner can't harm/break out your skin (unless it dries it out). Also I didn't want to describe 4 because 5 sounds better, so I tested another one :). I will share with you my opinion & experience, however I won't go into details about ingredients, but - ALL of these toners ARE ALCOHOL FREE.

Živjo, bralke :P Zunaj je že precej vroče in naša koža potrebuje malo osvežitve in danes predstavljam nekaj tonikov za mastno ali pa problematično kožo.
Do pred nekje 3 ali 4 leth se mi ni zdelo, da potrebujem tonik za svojo kožo. Nato pa sem se poučila kakšen fajn občutek pustijo na mojem obrazu. Če še nimaš tonika v svoji rutini, sem mnenja, da bi morala vseeno poizkusiti z vsaj enim.
Med poletjem imam res zelo mastno kožo na T-predelu obraza, tako, da je tonik osnova moje rutine.
Sem mnenja, da tonik ne odpravi težav s kožo - AMPAK! -> v kombinaciji s čistilnim gelom + dnevno/nočno kremo za obraz skupaj delujejo super. Sama opazim ,da če si obraza ne umijem vredu in toniziram, se začnejo pojavljati mozoljčki in podobno. Nekateri toniki so mi malce pomagali z velikimi porami, ampak ne za dolgo, saj se na žalost tega res težko znebiš :/
Vem, da vam bom predstavila kar veliko tonikov, ampak zame je vsak izmed njih deloval malce drugače + menim, da tonik ne more ravno škodovati vaši koži (razen če jo res izsuši). In pa tudi nisem želela opisat samo 4, ker se 5 sliši bolje, zato sem še v zadnjem času testirala še enega. Torej z vami bom delila moje mnenje in izkušnjo, ne bom se poglabljala v sestavine, ampak vsi TI toniki SO BREZ ALKOHOLA.




1. Lush Tea Tree Water Toner (250g)
This is my all time favorite toner. I talked about it here .
I just love the way it feels on my skin and it is the best one for summer because it mattifies your skin quickly and tea tree helps with imperfections. However you might not like the scent because it has a bit of tea tree smell, but it's not strong !. I love the spritz on this one, which I like using during the day on summer holiday, just to refreshen my face :)

Tale je moj najljubši. O njem sem govorila tukaj .
Všeč mi je občutek na koži in je najboljši za poletje saj hitro matira kožo in čajevec pomaga pri nepravilnostih. Edino vonj ima malo po čajevcu, kar morda komu ne bi bilo všeč, ampak ni tako močen - lahko pa tudi verjetno sprobaš v trgovini kako se ti zdi. Super je tudi to, da je narejen kot razpršilo, kar mi je všeč za uporabo na počitnicah, saj preprosto "napršim" kožo, da jo osvežim.

2. Afrodita Clean Phase Toner (for normal to oily skin) (200 ml)
I received this one at the Afrodita event. It has a nice, a bit sweet, a bit floral scent like all Clean Phase products have. It might be a bit over-powering to some people.
It feels refreshing, it mattifies your skin but not completely till it looks a bit dry. Also it takes a bit more time to sink into your skin which I don't like but it's not that slow either.

Tale tonik sem dobila na Afrodita dogodku. Ima prijeten vonj, malce sladek, malce mogoče cvetličen, takšen kot vsi Clean Phase izdelki, ampak mogoče je nekaterim ljudem preveč močen.
Daje osvežilen občutek ter matira kožo ampak ne popolnoma - da bi izgledala suho. Tudi traja dlje časa, da se vpije v kožo, kar mi ni všeč, ampak dobro, ne traja res tako dolgo.

3. Afrodita Young & Pure Refresh Toner (deep hydrating, anti-imperfections) (200 ml)
This one is really really refreshing, almost more than the Lush one. The scent is also fresh. But it doesn't dry your skin, it mattifies it a bit less than the Clean Phase one. If you have drier skin and need something for problematic skin I think this one would be for you. As well as with Clean Phase one, I feel like it does take time to sink into your skin.

Tale je zelo osvežilen, mogoče celo bolj kot tisti iz Lush-a. Vonj je svež. Ne izsuši kože, jo matira ampak mogoče malo manj kot tisti Clean Phase. Če imaš malce bolj suho kožo od moje in potrebuješ nekaj za problematično kožo bi morda tale bil zate. Tudi tale potrebuje malce več časa, da se vpije v kožo.

4. Soraya Care & Control Anti-bacterial Toner (200 ml)
I know I talked about this one too (here). But I wanted to say sth again. I just love the scent of this one - so citrusy and fresh. This would be my number 2 pick for summer. Also while using it, it helped with problems on my skin, it cleared it, shrinked my pores just a bit & it mattified my skin.

O tem sem že govorila (tukaj). Ampak sem spet hotela še par stvari poudariti. Obožujem tale vonj - zelo citrusen je in svež. Tale je na moji listi takoj za Lush Tea Tree Water. In pa tudi ob uporabi se mi je zdelo, da mi je pomagal s problemi na koži, jo je očistil in malce skrčil pore in tudi matira.

5. Nivea (pure effect) Stay Clear Purifying Toner (200 ml)
As you can see I almost finished this one. I've had it for quite a long time, but I fell back in love with it.
It is really refreshing and as it says it mattifies your skin. It feels nice on your skin and sometimes I felt like it cleared my skin really well. If you have drier skin, it would feel drying on your skin too (like it did sometimes on mine during winter).

Tega sem že skoraj končala (kar je tudi bil moj namen saj kot vidite imam preveč tonikov ^^). Tale tonik sem imela že kar nekaj časa, ampak sem ga pred nekaj meseci ponovno vzljubila. Je res vlažilen in kot tudi pravi, matira kožo (kar dobro !). Občutek na koži je vseeno prijeten in včasih sem imela občutek, da mi je pomagal očistiti kožo. Če imaš morda malce bolj suho kožo, bi morda bil tale vseeno preveč izsušujoč.

I know these toners seem to be a bit the same, but I hope you found something useful !
I'm not sure about the prices, but I know Afrodita is around 5€, Nivea maybe more, Soraya a bit less than 9€ & Lush around 12 €.
Nisem ziher glede cen ampak vem, da so afroditini toniki okoli 5€, menda celo manj, Nivea je malce dražja, Soraya stane malo manj kot 9€ in Lush malo manj kot 12€.


p.s. Let me know what you think :)

  1. Tonikov ne uporabljam. Me pa veseli da si izbrala take brez alkohola, namreč ful veliko tonikov ima not na prvih mestih alkohol.

  2. ufff tole mi bo pa prišlo zelo prav. :D ima precej mastno kožo, sploh sedaj poleti in tonik proti temu bo super. Odlična objava. :D mislim, da si me prepričala z Afroditinim, Niveinega sem pa probala že nekaj časa nazaj in ni bil slab, a vedno išče kaj boljšega. :)

  3. Ta Refresh od Afrodite je od vseh, ki sem jih sprobala, moj najljubši. Bom verjetno dala še možnost temu Clean phase, da vidim, kateri mi bo bolj všeč :)

  4. Tole je pa popolna objava zame trenutno! Enkrat na leto se moji koži zmeša in moram zamenjat izdelke … Kakšno leto so mi idealni, potem pa kar naenkrat ne pašejo več. In sem ravno v iskanju novega tonika! Afroditinega bom verjetno sprobala, tale Clean Phase linija zgleda super. :)
