Organic Surge – Refreshing Toner

Refreshing Toner is a fairly simple product, it is a cooling toner with a lovely subtle lemony scent, and it really does feel refreshing on the skin (hence its name – Refreshing Toner!). It contains organic lemon and rosemary essential oils as well as other natural ingredients. I have been applying it at night with a cotton wool pad after cleansing to help refresh my skin and remove every last trace of cleanser. After use my skin feels nice and cool, and it doesn’t make my skin feel tight like other toners sometimes do. I am really enjoying using this product...
