Review: Handmade Naturals Face Toner

I think I have mentioned this before that I am currently experiencing hormonal problems and it is affecting my skin. I never use a toner in my facial routine because I am lazy and it is an extra expense. It occurred to me that perhaps I needed something to help balance my skin.  I figured a toner would be the quickest solution. It took me a little while to shop around as I was looking for something without witch hazel. As a teenager I would use witch hazel to combat pimples but as an adult I find it can be astringent. I decided to buy Rose, Chamomile and Geranium Toner from Handmade Naturals.

If you are not familiar with Handmade Naturals it is a family owned and run business.  Rossi started making her products after researching ways to treat her child with persistent cradle cap and nappy rash. The entire range is handmade, 100% natural and not tested on animals. The success of her online business lead her to expand to a retail shop in South Cheshire.  

I chose this one over the others because of the properties of the ingredients. Geranium is known for balancing, regulating, decongesting and detoxifying, Rose Otto for maintaining pH balance and chamomile is beneficial to sensitive skins. This is a great toner and I have seen improvements to the condition of my skin.  I think it is helping combat the breakouts I was experiencing. Natural toners are good because they do not strip the skin so it is rare that you will experience the tightness often associated with high street brands.  I do have a love and hate relationship with the fragrance, rose is not my favourite scent. My sense of smell is definitely affected by my mood. 

Overall, I highly recommend this product but if you do not think this toner would be suitable for your skin type there are another four to choose from.  Do you have a favourite natural toner? Have you tried any products from Handmade Naturals?

  1. Never tried but seems great! I'm a bit like you, if there's something missing in my skincare it's toner.
    And that's crazy because it's so easy to make. I once made a calendula toner, and I loved it, plus it's so cheap make it at home. Of course if we don't use preservatives it's preferable to make small amounts.

    1. I have bought floral water in the past but it was just easier to order someone else's creation this time around lol :)

  2. This looks great. I love toners! I'm using LE skin tonic at the moment (with spare bottle under the bed) and I got sent a Dr Hauschka toner yesterday to test out.
    Couldn't be without this step. I might try this one at some point too, it's a great price.
    I'd decant into a spritz bottle as I prefer that method of toning for speed and saves bits of cotton pads getting stuck in my stubble :)

    1. Both of those toners are lovely I have had samples in the past. I also decant into a bottle great for refreshing on the go especially in warmer weather.

  3. Great post! I agree Toner isn't something I tend to buy much of, I always see it as an expense I don't need, hence why I make so many! I must go through a lot of cucumbers lol. Rose is also something I have a love/hate relationship with, again for the smell but I must admit I've also found rose-water has done wonders for my skin too. I am thinking to perhaps go out and actually buy one soon lol, so will let you know how I get on :)

    1. Thank you & do let me know how you get on with it. Everyone seems to get excited about the scent of roses but I can't understand the attraction but it obviously must be great for the skin if we see results

  4. Hello miss, great post!
    Do you think your skin may be in needs of a little break? changing too often beauty routine and type of beauty products used may not help? What do you think?

    1. It is possible that has happened in the past but at the moment it is down to other factors relating to my health :)

  5. This sounds really soothing. I confess I don't always use a toner either but when I have used one for a prolonged period of time my skin has felt much softer and more in balance.

    1. I think you are right they do seem to balance skin but it is a step that most of us seem to skip :)
