A WINNING COMBO FOR A STUNNING FACE!
Just yesterday, I was watching a movie scene of Laurel & Hardy, one of the most iconic and influential comedy teams in the history of cinema; two different personalities that complemented each other perfectly. Laurel and Hardy had an undeniable chemistry that was evident in every one of their films. It is said that they genuinely enjoyed working together and had a deep respect for each other’s talent, and their chemistry transformed them into one of the most beloved comedy teams of all time.
This duo made me wonder how some pairings and combinations create magic, both onscreen and offscreen. Such ta is indeed rare but if we think about it, a whole lot of things we depend on in our lives are combinations in one way or the other. Two things with their own individual traits and qualities, and when they are combined what we get is a product of extraordinary power and impact.
This thought was what struck me when I opened the jar of one of my favourite products from Soilscents – Neroli and Mandarin toner. An exotic combination of neroli essential oil and mandarin hydrosol along with the rich company of aloe vera, D-Panthenol and witch hazel extract.
It has become my most dependable solution to get rid of any trace of impurities after the cleanser is applied, and to prepare the skin for the next level of my skincare routine – moisturising. This delicate toner can be trusted to perfect and nourish the skin and tighten the pores.
Now, what are all these exotic ingredients that lend this toner its magic benefits? Neroli oil is derived from the bitter orange tree and is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that are beneficial for the skin as it cures acne and heals scars. Studies have suggested that neroli oil helps improve skin elasticity, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and boosts hydration.
Like neroli, mandarin essential oil too is known for its numerous therapeutic benefits. Extracted from the rind of the mandarin fruit, this essential oil is rich in antioxidants and can help promote healthy skin and fight off infections.
Both neroli and mandarin oils are so versatile that they are popular choices for several aromatherapy and skincare applications. And for this toner, Soilscents has brought in a series of ingredients like aloe vera that help moisturise and soothe the skin. It also has D-Panthenol that regenerates and hydrates the skin while the witch hazel extract acts as an astringent and adds anti-inflammatory properties.
So, how do I apply this toner? When do I use it?
After washing my face with the cleanser from Soilscents, I take a small amount of the toner on a cotton swab and apply it all over the face. I give it a few minutes to get completely absorbed and then I pick up a moisturiser for my type of skin. And that gets me going, all radiant and glowing.
Two essential oils are what make my toner so special. Told you, some combinations are real magic.
