Towards the end of summer, I noticed my skin was getting particularly oily during the day and when I mentioned this during an Origins skincare consultation, I was recommended their United state toner to try.
The toner contains extracts of laminaria, soy protein, bergamot and spearment, which claims to control oil production without drying out non oily areas.
Not surprisingly it feels very refreshing and balancing on the skin, and like all toners, it helps to remove any last traces of make up and cleanser. At first it did exactly what it claims on the bottle. Over time my chin did start to feel a little dry with daily use, however I loved it's mattifying effect on my t-zone.
So now I use this every few days, focusing on my t-zone and it works a treat. My skin feels a lot more deep cleansed and balanced and I hardly ever need to blot or re-powder anymore. So overall, a big thumbs up from me!
