Am back again with one of my favorite zones of skin care regimen, toning. I rarely miss any opportunity to pick up new launches and when it comes from a trusted brand, there are no two thoughts before picking this up. Read on to know more about L’Oreal Hydra Fresh Anti-Shine Purifying & Refining Toner.
Price: Rs. 420/- for 200ml
My Experience with L’Oreal Hydra Fresh Anti-Shine Purifying & Refining Toner:
The packaging is like most of the cleansers and toners from L’Oreal, a sturdy plastic bottle with minty green translucent body and a white cap. The mint green exudes fresh summer feel to the whole packaging. All details about the product are mentioned on a sticker at the back. The opening is just right to pour out the required amount of the product. A functional and sturdy packaging, which is slightly difficult to carry along owing to the size of the bottle.
The texture of the toner is water like and has a typical smell of the products from the Hydra Fresh range. I have used the serum from the range and they smell exactly same. I dab some product on a cotton pad and swipe through the face. It gives an instant refreshing feel to the skin and keeps oil at bay for some 2-3 hours.
I was curious to find out if the claim of being anti-shine was correct or not. It kept oiliness at bay but it is not something that would really mattify your skin if you have super oily skin; for reference, my skin varies from combination to oily. I did not get any breakouts but again it did not stop my zits either. So for me this is again an average everyday product. If you are looking for a regular toner and you have combination skin, this might work pretty well. Do not go by the tall claim of anti-shine if your skin is super oily.

Would I Recommend/Repurchase L’Oreal Hydra Fresh Anti-Shine Purifying & Refining Toner?
Umm…I would say no to both. You will get a lot of options, but if you are still willing and have a combination skin, give this a try.
