Elizabeth Arden has launched a new range “Visible Whitening” and out of all the products including essence, cleanser, night capsules, emulsion, moisturizer, I picked up the Visible Whitening Pore Minimizing Toner. I was looking for a good toner without any alcohol content and when I checked the ingredient list at the store, there was no alcohol listed, yipee! A little product info before the review.
This mild, refreshing toner soothes, clams, and clarifies skin as it reduces the look of pores. Leaves skin looking smooth, clear, and glowing. Prepares skin to receive benefits of the Visible Whitening regimen.
How To Use:
Sweep on to cleansed skin with cotton pad.
Rs. 2910 for 200 ml.
My Take on Elizabeth Arden Visible Whitening Pore Minimizing Toner:
Its a mild, pleasant-smelling, slightly milky toner that comes in a 200 ml sturdy plastic bottle. I am so thankful the toner is in a plastic bottle instead of a glass one because I have dropped it so many times, if it were glass, it wouldn’t have lasted at all. The best thing about this toner is that it is alcohol free, therefore does not sting. Also, contains ingredients like witch hazel, glycerin, camellia sinesis leaf extract.
This would be a great toner for sensitive skin and dry skin because it has glycerin in it. Glycerin makes my skin a bit greasy, so I would have loved it if glycerin was not there, but still, this is one of the best toners I have used. This toner soothes irritated skin and reduces the appearance of pores temporarily. Whatever dry patches I have on my skin due to acne ointments, this toner clears them out.
I haven’t seen any whitening effect as such, but I think one would have to use the other Visible Whitening products in this range along with the toner to see better results. One more thing I have noticed is that I do not need to moisturize after using this toner, that too is probably because of the glycerin and hydrogenated castor oil.
Dry skin, combination skin, and sensitive skin would love this toner, but some of you with oily and super oily skin would find it to be a bit greasy, so stay away from this. Others, you can go ahead and pick this one, its alcohol free 🙂
