Toning your skin makes a great difference to how it looks and feels. Women with oily skin do need toner in their skin care routine as it reduces pore problems and the occurrence of acne. For the same reasons, I got this Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Toner that’s meant for oily, blemished skin. Did it serve the purpose? Read on to know my thoughts.

Infused with a blend of Tomato, Cucumber and Parsley Extracts, this natural facial toner removes lingering traces of cleanser and any trapped dirt, oil and make-up and helps to tighten pores. Formulated with a Fruit Acid Complex featuring Sugar Cane, Sugar Maple, and Bilberry Extracts rich in Alpha Hydroxy Acids, it also supports the natural exfoliation of dead skin cells. The result is fresh, beautiful skin. Naturally. Also use our Garden Tomato Toner prior to applying your favorite Burt’s Bees face lotion, as it helps to prepare your skin to maximize the benefits of your moisturizer.
My Experience with Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Toner:
Packaging: It comes in a big bulky glass bottle. The frosted glass bottle with a red screw on cap reminds me of ancient potions and medicines, it has that kind of a look. Product details are written on the body of the bottle. It has a big mouth, with no stopper, so you can’t control the amount of product. The 236 ml bottle is not at all travel friendly. One of the biggest drawbacks of this otherwise nice product is its packaging, which is very delicate and fragile, and inconvenient to use.

The toner is like water, well almost. It doesn’t feel thick or greasy like some regular toners. I take it in a cotton ball, and wipe my face, concentrating more on my problem areas, i.e. my nose and chin. These are the areas where I have maximum pimples, or zits mainly due to clogged pores or ingrown hair. I have taken to exfoliating and toning my skin very well to reduce these problems.

The toner tingles actually. Initially, the tingling was very prominent, but as my skin has gotten used to it now, it hardly does now. It doesn’t leave a film or sticky residue on my face (thank God!). It cleans my skin really well. Even if I have removed my makeup with an oil-based remover, then use a face wash, it somehow manages to dig up some impurities from the deepest of my skin layers. See the swatch where I wiped my freshly washed face. It seems my face wash didn’t remove any grime or dirt (although my face looked squeaky clean).

This product really helps with skin problems, especially those caused by clogged pores. It reduces sebum production, cleans pores and shrinks them. Blackheads and whiteheads considerably reduced after using this for just a week. Enriched with tomato and citrus extracts, it is rich in acids especially alpha hydroxyl acids. That explains the tingling sensation and also why it reduces tan and blemishes to some degree. It contains alcohol and dries out skin. Definitely not for dry skin, but an effective one for oily skin.

It is definitely a good toner for oily, acne-prone skin. But it contains alcohol, so keep that in mind. I will use it, but probably not repurchase it.
