Vitamine & Sea Facial Toner and Eye Makeup Remover

Hi ladies! After my positive experiences with Vitamine & Sea Clay Mask and Cleansing Milk, I was very excited to have the opportunity to try even more products from this luxurious brand.

Enriched with botanicals, extracts, marine minerals and protein to improve skin lipid content and promote firmness, the naturally superior luxury cleansing Facial Toner ($42.00) is also said to add massive amounts of moisture from tamarind seed extract with aloe vera, chamomile and Japanese green tea, to rejuvenate the skin. Cucumber extract tightens pores combined with wheat protein and marine minerals containing selenium, magnesium, copper, zinc, calcium and germanium to round out the essential benefits for a glowing complexion.

Since I have dry and eczema-prone skin, I tend to favour toners and micellar water to wash my face instead of harsh cleansers, especially in the morning when I am in a rush before work. With this toner, I have to be careful because a lot of product comes out of the bottle, but I love how my skin feels pampered, soothed and energized after use. It does not seem to be especially moisturizing - although absolutely not drying! - since my skin is really dry, but maybe if you have normal or oily skin, you will notice a difference.

Vitamine & Sea's unique, luxurious, all natural and organic oil free Eye Makeup Remover uses naturally moisturizing and PH balancing Jojoba wax esters to break down makeup for easy removal, in a base of floral waters rich with vitamins A, C, D, E and B3 that soothe as they reduce redness, and puffiness. Witch hazel is used to clarify, purify and tone without drying or irritating the delicate skin around the eyes.

I am pretty strict when it comes to makeup remover because honestly, who really has the time, and who really enjoys taking off their makeup? I personally tend to do it the lazy way - jump into the shower, wash my face, and wipe away the remaining eye makeup with toner or micellar water when I get out. Since this product is claimed to be oil-free, I was really surprised, and a bit disappointed, that my eye area was left super greasy after using this makeup remover, however, I was even more surprised to realize that the oil residue just seems to go away/get absorbed by itself?! Although this product effortlessely removes eyeshadow and eyeliner, I struggled really hard to remove all traces of my mascara, but maybe it is because of my current mascara's formulation. At least, it is non drying!

Made from certified organic ingredients, vegan, fair trade and cruelty-free, the Facial Toner and the Eye Makeup Remover are available on the Vitamine & Sea website.
