Toners, what is comparable to Clinique prices for a good toner...

Hi, Is Clinique's toners bad for the skin because they have alcohol in them?  Anyone know of a good toner that is not so pricey?  TY 4 your help!!  >'.'<

Re: Toners, what is comparable to Clinique prices for a good toner...

No probs! Those listed can also apply to hair and other beauty products as well, which is key especially for anyone who's a frequent hair spray user!

 

I don't think it's necessary for everyone to ditch the not-so great alcohols as everyone is on a different level in terms of how they can affect skin or hair, but if you have a product with the bad alcohols, try to be sure the product also is packed with conditioning and healthy ingredients to balance the effects!

Re: Toners, what is comparable to Clinique prices for a good toner...

Yeah, I've definitely been concerned about my toner lately with all the talk about alcohol in toner drying your skin out! I use the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner from the Body Shop, which has alcohol denat listed as the second ingredient in it. Not sure if there are enough other healthy ingredients in it to balance it out or not, but I will probably try experimenting with some different toners once I use this up!

Alcohol denate (or denatured alcohol) is listed in the not-so great list, but several of the ones listed in that slew do help cut down the dry-down time, which is good for folks with oily or problematic skin and even folks who are using products with it to style their hair as it means it won't keep locks sopping with product.

Thank you both!

 

I've never experimented with Lush's products (that could be dangerous Smiley Tongue ), but I will definitely try this out!

Re: Toners, what is comparable to Clinique prices for a good toner...

Yes indeed it could be dangerous! Dangerous on the bank account o.o But hey ya can't go wrong with a few of their bath bombs and a nice glass of wine for an evening to yourself. Worth it.

Re: Toners, what is comparable to Clinique prices for a good toner...

I get in trouble when I walk by their bath bombs, their kits make excellent gifts!

You should totally check out LUSH's Tea Tree Water (toner). The dupe is the one at the Body Shop. I've been using it for the past year and it's been really helping with my breakouts!

 

Here are the ingredients:

Tea Tree Water (Melaleuca alternifolia) , Tea Tree Water (Melaleuca alternifolia) , Grapefruit Water (Citrus grandis) , Grapefruit Water (Citrus grandis) , Juniperberry Water (Juniperus communis) , Juniperberry Water (Juniperus communis) , *Limonene , Perfume , Perfume , Methylparaben , Methylparaben

When TheBalm.com had their 50% off special, I ordered several of these for myself and as gifts. It's a basic toner and is billed as proper for all skin types. I've been loving it, but I'm fickle and will likely try something new when it is gone.

 

It contains AHA, so it's exfoliating in addition to other benefits. The price is surely right and might be worth a try for some of you who are reading this topic.

I see you like the Body Shop mist. Smiley Wink

 

Gosh I am soooo addicted to Caudalie spray. It's so expensive, especially considering how fast it evaporates. It's #1 on my to-buy list for the fall's % or $$ off promo.

Re: Toners, what is comparable to Clinique prices for a good toner...

Haha, it's such a great morning pick-me-up! Gotta have me some citrus!!!

 

I knew the Caudalie mention would catch your eye!
