I’ve picked up the Yves Rocher’s Nutritive Vegetal Velvety Toner for Dry and Very Dry Skin several weeks ago because I’ve heard some amazing things about it, and wanted to try a new toner anyway.
And it did not disappoint.
It is a great transitional product from cleanser to serum/oil/moisturizer/whatever you use next. I like how it calms, soothes my skin, and leaves it soft. Plus it doesn’t irritate or dry it out, even when it’s very cold outside.
I don’t really know what else is there to say about a toner, besides that it smells nice and I like the cheerful orange colour of the bottle.

REN is one of the most amazing skincare brands out there, in my opinion. Their most famous products are Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask and Otto Rose body products. But today I want to tell you about the product that I personally love a lot.
And it is their Omega 3 Night Repair Serum.
Anything skincare related with omega 3 in it never fails to get my attention, actually. This is an oil-based serum that, according to the brand, replenishes skin lipids and leaves the complexion looking naturally smoother and healthier.
And who doesn’t want that?
I find that this serum smells nice, the texture is not heavy but it is definitely a night serum. I massage it in for several minutes and it sinks pretty fast in my skin but it (my skin) “drinks up” any oils very fast, so if your skin is not that dry you may find that it will take you a longer time…
I am very impressed withRead More
Nourish Skincare brand was founded by Dr Pauline Hili who was a Technical Director at Neal’s Yard Remedies for 20 years and is a one of the UK’s top organic skincare experts in general.
I personally like that there is nothing complicated about this brand, it’s simple yet effective. There are four skincare ranges: for oily and combination, dry, sensitive and dull skin types.
I have a Replenishing Peptide Serum For Dry Skin (£16.95) which I have been using during the holiday season…
This is a 80% organic product with Orange and Mandarin Oils, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. As I’ve said I have been using this serum during the holiday season ( I think I have used about half of it by this time), both evening and morning and loved the effect.
Of course, I loved the zesty citrus scent and also the light texture of the product which absorbed quickly into the skin.
I would say thatRead More
I am actually surprised that I have never written about Clarins’ HydraQuench range as it is one of my favourites and I have been using it since last winter.
I have a HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase and HydraQuench Cream SPF 15.
HydraQuench Intensive Serum Bi-Phase (£40 for 30 ml)
This is actually one of the best products for dehydrated and/or dry skin I have ever tried. With the key ingredients such as: Hyaluronic acid, Katafray extract, Sorbier bud extract, Inca peanut extract and Chondrus crispus extract (red algae) it works miracles!
By miracle I mean that you can see immediate results, this serum helps stimulate skin’s natural moisturisation process. It battles all the drynesses, flakiness and tightness, leaving the skin hydrated, plumped, soft and smooth.
Bi-Phase serum smells nice, takes seconds to absorb and does not leave a greasy or oily residue. It is now my skincare essential whenever my skin needs a little help, which is quite often in winter.
I could not sing enough praises to this product. In fact, I have finished my first bottle and the second one, which I’ve got during the sales, isRead More
If you can’t decide if you should or should not use a toner I suggest this post at BeautyMouth.
I personally use a toner and right now I am using two: Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner and Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin.
I know that this Clarins toner is a favourite of many people and I can understand why. It is gentle, doesn’t dry out the skin and leaves it fresh, clean (when used after a cleanser obviously) and ready for the moisturizer.
I also love the camomile scent and the yellow bottle.
The key ingredients are: Bio-Ecolia: preserves the skin’s natural balance. Alpine Herbs: soften. Linden: refreshes and soothes. Camomile: softens. Vitamins A, B and E: improve skin quality.
If you do use a toner and have dry/normal skin, this is a nice one to try!
I’ve got mine from feelunique for £15.30 which is a nice price as it retails for £17
