#huxley Secret of Sahara Extract It;Toner
It's a hydrating antioxidant toner infused with Sahara Cactus extract that will help balance and prep the skin. It's an alcohol and water-free, pH-adjusting formula that has 90% naturally derived ingredients to help keep skin clear and moisturized.
It comes in a beautiful minimalist box and a twist cap glass bottle that just instantly makes it feel so luxurious. The liquid is watery but absorbs quickly with no tackiness at all. The scent, however, took a while for me to get used to TBH. I prefer my products unscented or at least naturally scented, and this contains fragrances that is neither offensive nor overwhelming, but rather fresh and cool but still, I had to do some adjusting initially. 🏼I know, I'm sorry! Now I think it's a sensorial delight but given the choice..🏼
I use it right after my double cleanse or after my VitC as I feel it helps hydrate my skin by gently patting it in 1-3layers, depending on my skin's needs. It's also a great toner to use before actives to prep skin but right now I just prefer to use it after. To compare, it's less viscous than the Whamisa toner, which I felt was more nourishing; the Cosrx AHA/BHA toner has more cleaning power; the Beauty Water removes makeup better and the Klairs one still has the best mix in terms of hydration, gentleness and overall nourishment for my skin.
That said, I love using this toner but because my cheeks are incredibly dehydrated, I feel this is lacking in terms of hydration and while this feels great upon application, my skin needs more moisture. But then, this is a toner and as that it does a great job in balancing and prepping my skin. On my oily-skinned hubby, though, this worked like a dream! His skin was soft and it kept his oil under control! 🏻♂️
As a moisturizing product, this isn't my number one as I'd rather go for the Whamisa or Klairs one. But as a whole, I definitely recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind a fragranced product that feels great on the skin and has stellar botanic-rich ingredients that always leaves my skin soft and balanced. Now time to test it out with the other Huxley products! - 10 hours ago
