You’re probably wondering why I chose a simple boring product like toner to review. Well, my beauties, Lancôme’s Tonique Confort ($25) is no ordinary toner. First, it’s a hydrating toner and I’ve never experienced anything like it. I quit using toner for a few years because they were all so drying. If you have oily skin or acne, toners with glycolic or other alpha hydroxy acids can help to prevent blackheads and breakouts. Today, however I am going to talk about a hydrating toner for us over 40 ladies.
I rarely use cosmetic brand skincare, I prefer skincare brands. However Lancôme and Shiseido are the two exceptions to the rule, they have some fabulous skincare products. Lancôme DreamTone is an excellent product for skin tone (reviewed here).
While there is some debate on whether you need a toner or not, I like to use one to get all the residual makeup off my skin and prepare it for my skin treatments.
Some benefits of using a toner:
- removes all traces of makeup and hard to remove sunscreen
- returns skin to it’s normal pH balance
- refreshes skin
- this toner moisturizes
After cleansing, I use a cotton ball soaked in Lancôme Tonique Confort. I find that even with the best cleansers, I still find some makeup on the edges of my face or along the jawline or neck when I blended my foundation.
The formula is made with sweet almond oil and and honey and leaves my skin feels refreshed and clean. There is no tight feeling, no stinging or burning and unlike most toners, the texture of this is a gel lotion which is very soothing to the skin. I truly think it helps my serums absorb better too.
As with most Lancôme products, this toner has a slight perfume scent–just thought I would mention it if you are sensitive to scents.
Often Lancôme Tonique Confort is offered as a part of a gift with purchase, if you get a chance definitely try it!
Bottom Line: a hydrating toner that is soothing and comforting for normal to dry skin. Recommended!
