🍃BENTON Deep Green Tea Toner🍃
Benton ended 2018 on a high note by debuting the first two products from their Green Tea Line. Ya girl, being a green tea skincare product obsessed freak, well... freaked out! 😂 I was fortunate enough to get sent a bottle of their Deep Green Tea Toner to test out and my skin has been drinking it up for 4 weeks now. The toner was released alongside a lotion that dazzled its testers out of their wits! I’m honestly tempted to purchase that because I bet it would do wonders to my skin when used with this toner.
So anyway, let’s get on with the proper review of the product shall we? 😁
🍃 Notable Ingredients
The Deep Green Tea Toner boasts of a whopping 53% Boseong Green Tea goodness.
~ 50% Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water
~ 3% EG-Green Tea (a synergy of leaf, seed and root extracts)
Green Tea is known to have multiple skin care benefits when applied topically. It contains anti-inflammatory components that help immensely when skin is sensitized, antioxidants that assist in increased cell turnover helping prevent early signs of aging and soothing properties that effectively calms skin irritation, lowers temperature for a cooler feel and maintains a healthy oil-water balance.
Hyaluronic Acid is also one of the toner’s main ingredients. This ensures the capability of the product to hydrate lacklustre skin, leaving it smooth and plump to the touch.
The toner is contained in a sturdy, amber colored plastic bottle with a wrap-around sticker dawning an aesthetically perfect shade of hunter green. It has a screw-on cap with a stopper that helps dispense an appropriate amount of liquid.
🍃 Product Texture & Appearance:
Unlike your typical clear green tea toners, Benton Deep Green Tea Toner has a light tinge of brown - the natural color of brewed green tea. It’s texture is water-like making it feel very light when applied to the skin.
It has that very light, almost undetectable, freshly brewed tea scent.
🍃 How I use the product
This toner is alcohol free and feels light against the skin so it’s perfect for the 7-skin method which I’ve used it for a couple of times now. But I often use this with a cotton pad and dispense just the right amount to moisten my face and neck. (Scroll to the 3rd photo to see how much product I use per go)
I absolutely adore this toner! 😍 My skin responds well to green tea derived products and the Deep Green Tea Toner did not disappoint. It perfectly addresses my skin concerns. The cooler weather has left my skin dull and parched the past couple of months so this couldn’t have come at a better timing. It hydrates my skin thoroughly and leaves a supple feel to it. It’s light texture prevents that stuffy feeling you get once you layer your products. I’ve been using a rather heavy cream for moisturizer these days, so using a light weight toner gorgeously compliments the routine. I love that it doesn’t sting my skin even after a hearty 7-skin method. I would definitely repurchase once I consume my current bottle ❤️
Thank you Benton for sending this lovely toner for review! My green tea loving heart flutters for having been given the opportunity to test this out 💚
